Right now, it’s nearly impossible to scroll the internet and not come across some weird food combo or weird food hack that’s gone viral. Many of these food combos are a revelation to foodies who are blown away by the invention. Food hacks, on the other hand, are known to teach us how to function more easily in the kitchen and are welcomed by amateur chefs and beginners alike. However, not all food hacks or combos we come across do what they promise. Many may seem completely unnecessary and too bizarre to be true. Most of us have come across content that makes us question its existence and ask “Why?”

Most of the comments left by viewers commented on how inconvenient the hack was.
“Is this even a hack or what?”
“Bada hi illegal cheez kiye ho aap” (What you did is illegal)
“2 iron lene se aacha toh sandwich machine he lengay” (I’d rather buy a sandwich maker than have two irons for this hack)
“Aisa kisi ke samne karo toh duhkaan wala bhi free sandwich de dega” (A sandwich shop might as well give you a free sandwich as see you doing that)

But wait, the hack isn’t entirely useless as many students and bachelors living in hostels and PGs without proper kitchen equipment have commented. In fact, many of these students vouched for the hack and even corrected the blogger on how to do it in the future.
“Hostel me kaam aata hai ye sab. Aur ek press se bhi kaam ho jata hai” (This is useful in hostels, in fact, you can also do this with a single iron)
“We do it with aluminum foil and a single iron. Hosteller life!”
“Hostel vale bachon ke liye hai yeh! Hostel Life jo jeeta hai wohi samajh sakta hai. No induction no Gas, tab iron hi kam aati hai” (This is for students living in hostels. When you don’t have induction or gas, iron is what helps us.)
“Try it once by wrapping it in aluminum foil, it will definitely work”
