I cannot stop thinking about the egg one.
I still remember the first time a chef taught me how to really cut an onion. (It’s a game changer, FYI.)
But these days, you don’t need a chef friend to get clued in, you just need TikTok. So, I dedicated a day to trying TikTok food hacks to see what works and what doesn’t.
HACK #1: Slice a bunch of cherry tomatoes in half at the same time — using just a Tupperware lid and a sharp knife.
I cut all the tomatoes for my salad in just a few seconds — but had to cut one particularly small tomato separately.
HACK #2: Cut a mango across the middle, twist to detach each side from the pit — and you’re left with two scoopable mango “cups”.
This was…really messy, and wasted a ton of the fruit.
HACK #3: Quickly make cold butter spreadable by grating it onto your (warm) toast.
It worked! Really, really well.
HACK #4: Use olive oil to keep a cut avocado from turning brown.
It worked okay, but you definitely have to refrigerate the avocado. I tried both ways and leaving one half out overnight was a baaaaad idea.
HACK #5: Cut an upside-down bell pepper along its seams to avoid having to scrape out the seeds later.
It works like a dream — but you have to do it right.
HACK #6: Peel a hard-boiled egg in seconds — and with only one hand — by shaking the egg in a cup, submerging it again in water, then slipping the peel off.
Even though it sounds more complicated than it is, I LOVED this hack.
