London Fire Brigade warns against TikTok cooking 'hack'
Thousands of TikTok viewers have unleashed their inner Gordon Ramsay after one woman shared a questionable steak-cooking method.
In a viral clip that's garnered just under 16 million views, Juliette (@itsmeju1iette) showcased a romantic meal for her boyfriend: Steak made in a toaster.
Judging by the TikToker's previous posts, the toaster method appears to be in the name of fun – and was not intended to be taken seriously.
Of course, some viewers missed the memo and proceeded to roast Juliette.
"I just watched a crime happen," one stunned user wrote, while another added: "This is so barbaric it’s not even funny."
Juliette told Insider: "I was surprised that it actually worked. Some people think the video is fake, but it's 100% real. I would recommend that more people cook with their toaster."
Despite initially becoming a viral sensation in 2020, the London fire brigade has since reignited the old favourite (for all the wrong reasons) by reminding people not to try this at home.
In a post to their official Twitter account, they warned: "What you having for dinner? This #Electricalsafetyweek we're reminding people to only use electrical products for their designated use. Don't cook steaks in a toaster."
