Many Germans love to cook and bake – and let’s be honest: Who hasn’t had a kitchen mishap or two? Food burns, milk boils, bags of flour explode… there is nothing that does not exist. Because: where there is flatness, there is a shave! A Twitter user now asked other users about the most unpleasant kitchen mishaps – and heard the most absurd stories.

Kitchen Mishaps: These Stories Are Just Hilarious!
“What was your biggest kitchen fail ever?” asks the Twitter user – and immediately introduces himself. “During my cooking training for the onion cake (6 large industrial trays!) at our restaurant, I poured 500 grams of chili powder into the mixture instead of 500 grams of paprika powder.” Instead of mild spices, there was intense heat…

But some other Twitter users can easily keep up! “In my home economics training, I mixed chopped green beans and peppers for the little green ones in the exam… the examiners cried, they were so excited,” says one comment. And a story revolves around salt: “Apple pie baked with salt instead of sugar and proudly carried to coffee gossip. The faces when you try it: priceless.”
This too sounds anything but delicious: “Banana milk. So bananas, milk, honey and lots of cinnamon. Has anyone ever told Ostmann how unpleasant it is that cinnamon and nutmeg are exactly the same color?” And another user’s experience sounds particularly spicy as well. “When I was young, I wanted to make pasta and tomato sauce for my girlfriend in her parents’ trailer. The sauce should bind, flour inside. Nothing. More flour. Still nothing. Well, then we will eat it like that, without spices. Well… what I thought was flour was washing powder.”
But breakdowns aren’t just about the wrong use of spices. “Frequently cook the stock of meat and bone marrow, vegetables and spices in a 10-liter pot, reduce and freeze the portions,” writes one woman. “One time, after 10 hours of boiling, I threw everything in the large sieve into the sink. Without a bowl underneath.” All the work was gone… which hurts the soul of any hobby cook.
The kitchen often suffers from cooking mishaps
Even the kitchen often suffers. “I wanted to make espresso on the stove. “I forgot a sealing ring on the stove,” writes one user. “Sports placed on the stove. At first everything went well. Then he exploded. The whole kitchen was full of espresso and ground beans and needed a repaint.”

One comment read: “Chocolate Muffins. Thought I’d double the amount. Batter first crawled with hand mixer to motor, which first went full blast, chocolate mass exploded all over kitchen, then hand mixer took flame.” And another story barely missed the fire brigade deployment. “I turned on the wrong stove once and burned the cutting board. And as soon as my jacket got caught on the stove handle without me noticing, the ceramic hob cover exploded.”
