We Test the Internet’s 14 Most Popular Culinary Life Hacks

We at Bright Side love surfing the net in search of those helpful tips and tricks that make our life easier. Lately, we’ve decided to test out some of them for ourselves. For example, are those popular culinary life hacks really as effective as their likes and reposts appear to suggest?

Today we invite you to take a look at the results. Disclaimer: no editors were harmed during the experiments!

№ 1: To cut all of your cherry tomatoes in half at once, put them between two flat plates and slice through the gap with a sharp knife.


Result: Cutting tomatoes in this way is very cumbersome. We only managed to slice a few and then had to resort to doing it the old-fashioned way. This life hack might work if you use a very sharp knife, but even then you’ll hardly succeed in slicing the fruit exactly in half.

Conclusion: This doesn’t work.
