I went on the internet today and I found this...

I hate the internet sometimes. Often it is a comforting place full of cute puppy pictures and sneezing pandas. And sometimes it's full of people putting steaks in toasters. Yes, you read that correctly. Steaks in toasters. Allow me to explain.

There is this thing called TikTok and it is home, largely, to young people doing various things in short 60 second clips. Essentially what Vine was. And in the videos that appear on it people are often showing off how they do make-up, jokes, skits, bisexual pirates (honestly, don't ask, I haven't a clue where bi-rate Tiktok came from) and then there are sixty-second recipes on there. People showing off their cooking prowess from making the best mashed-potato in the world to super satisfying baking videos, or those woodland cooking videos where with just some basic ingredients, a beautiful knife and a campfire someone can make chilli and tortillas, and then there's someone putting steaks in a toaster.

Anyone who's been following me for a while will remember how in one article I was simply apoplectic with rage at an American lady failing to make tea or beans on toast without ruining them. So you can imagine my abject horror when I scrolled across someone putting steaks into a toaster.

Lifted straight from @itsmeju1iette's Tiktok account.

Yup, that's exactly what just happened. @itsmeju1iette just stuck two steaks in a toaster, seemingly cooks them in there, and then slathers them with sauce (why, although assuming they were cooked in the toaster sans seasoning, that makes sense) and then eats them. The creator describes themself as a "Masterchef" in their bio on the app and has amassed a whopping 116.2 THOUSAND followers for her less than conventional cooking methods. Other such meal preparations involve "engine bay grilled cheese", "meatballs and spaghetti a la coffee maker" and "bacon and eggs hot off the hair straightener", the latter of which I have included below because honestly why do people use something that can cook bacon on their hair? Although when it comes to hair, I'm not really one to talk...

Another curious cooking concept from @itsmeju1iette

Still, is this the craziest means of cooking you've ever seen, or have you done worse? I distinctly remember making pasta in a kettle once at university. It worked but was very al dente, and I forgot to wash it out before making my coffee the next morning...
