You’ve been cooking with your pan all wrong – the right way means you’ll know exactly when your food is ready to plate

GREAT mornings begin with a great breakfast.

And there’s nothing that can ruin a breakfast more than a burnt fried egg.

We’ve all experienced the disappointment of a fried egg falling apart on the pan thanks to our attempts to scrape it off and serve it.

One man online, who goes by @ChadPostMusic, said this often happens because our approach to pan-fried cooking is all wrong.

In his TikTok, Chad began:

“My degree is in culinary arts and this is the MOST important tip I EVER learned from being in the kitchen!”

He showed an egg sizzling on the pan.

“If whatever you’re cooking—like meats/eggs/anything else—is sticking to the pan, it is not done yet,” he began.

“It will release when it’s done.”

Rather than try to scrape the food off, all you need to do is turn the heat down and let it keep cooking for a bit.

Chad claimed you will know when the food is ready because it will easily lift from the surface.

For a bonus tip, the pan-pro said: “And next time start with medium-high heat and enough fat in the pan to avoid this.”

Viewers were shocked at their own ignorance: 

“Why did I just learn this now?? Eggs are my nemesis!” one user commented. 

“This is also true for baking! Cakes pull away from the edges of the pan when they are done,” chimed another. 

TikTokers were similarly mind-blown when they discovered that they were cooking popcorn wrong as well.

In a TikTok video, Isabella Avila revealed the proper way to make popcorn—and it means you won’t have any unpopped kernels mixed in your bowl.

Holding up a freshly heated bag of microwaveable popcorn, Isabella, who goes by they, pointed at the slightly opened slit at the bottom of the bag.

“That little slit at the bottom is used to shake out the [unpopped] kernels in the bag,” they revealed.

With the slit pointed down, Isabella shook the bag over a glass bowl and the kernels began to fall out and into the bowl.

Because the slit is so narrow, the popcorn did not escape with the kernels.
