Woman Shows Off Bizarre 'Hack' To Cook Vegetables In The Dishwasher
| Last updated
A woman has left TikTok users scratching their heads after sharing a rather unusual 'hack' to cooking your veg for a 'holiday dinner' using a dishwasher.
Yep, in today's edition of Hacks You Probably Don't Need we have a woman who cuts up her veggies, puts them in sealed jars with a bit of water and lashes them on a cycle through the dishwasher to make the perfect cooked vegetables.
TikTok user Shannon L Doherty, who runs the @athomewithshannon account, explained: "Did you know you can cook your veggies in the dishwasher?
"This is the best holiday dinner hack. Put your veggies in mason jars, add water and run them in a normal dishwasher cycle.
"Instant veggies, best cooking hack."
If you say so, Shannon.
The clip has left some people feeling very uneasy with one person writing: "Why does this make me want to vomit."
Another questioned the logic, posting: "This doesn't even save time? A dishwasher cycle is much longer than just steaming broccoli?"
A third wrote: "So it's an hour in the dishwasher or 15 minutes to steam them?"
Another user, presumably inspired by Jurassic Park, commented: "Just a reminder - just because you can does not mean you should."
The whole thing kind of reminds me of fellow US TikToker who caused uproar after her tea tutorial went viral - and broke the hearts of Brits.
Michelle, who goes by the handle of @jchelle36 on TikTok, decided to share a tutorial video showing the world how to make a nice cup of 'hot tea' or 'British tea'.
Along with her daughter, Michelle proceeds to fill a mug with water from the tap and pops it into the microwave for a minute.
This is already sacrilege, but it gets worse - her daughter than pours in enough milk to drown a cow before finally adding the tea bag.
Argh - make it stop.
As the final kick in the teeth, she then recommends adding sugar, to which her daughter responds by pouring in a huge pile, before saying: "Give it a little stir, and that's how you make hot tea!"
No it is not, Michelle.
