Hack to stop kitchen food spills proves popular on TikTok

No matter how much you love getting your creative juices flowing in the kitchen, no one loves the clear up.

Kitchen counters covered in a sticky mess is one of the worst parts of the cooking aftermath.

Thankfully, a video posted on TikTok recently promises to make annoying food spills a thing of the past.

In the clip, TikTok user Andrew Gatt demonstrates a simple (yet not commonly known) way of avoiding kitchen spills while pouring liquids from a bowl to a pan, or vice versa.

It’s all about basic physics.

To demonstrate his method for avoiding pouring pitfalls, Gatt filmed himself making scrambled eggs.

After tipping the eggs from a bowl into the pan, he tilts the bowl back and points out the leftover egg spilling over the lip, which would continue to drip down the side of the bowl and onto the counter.

However, Gatt explains that if he applies the law of basic physics and instead of tipping the bowl back, continued to turn it in the same direction, the drippings would fall back into the bowl, preventing any mess.

Illustrating the simple yet genius method, Gatt illustrates that by continuing to turn the bowl, he can avoid any spillage on the kitchen counter or whatever surface he places the bowl back down.

“How old were you when you learned this life hack?” Gatt captioned the video.

While this particular video shows Gatt using the technique while making eggs, you can use this hack for virtually any liquid that could be spilled on the kitchen counter. 

The video was viewed more than 1.2 million times within a week of being posted and has clocked up 69.7K likes from impressed home cooks.

“OMG thank you so much for this. You have no idea,” one person commented.

“My paper towels be like ‘thank you’,” another joked.

Other people shared their own tricks for avoiding excess drippage.

“I instead use a spatula to get all the excess egg out of the bowl. I hate to see anything go to waste,” one person offered.

“I just put it in the sink while my hand is stopping the drip from hitting the floor,” another shared.

Amateur home cooks who are tired of kitchen messes may be relieved to learn a seriously simple kitchen hack that keeps leftover liquid from spilling onto the counter.

TikTok user Andrew Gatt shared the trick on the video-sharing app last week while frying up some scrambled eggs on the stove.

After pouring the eggs into the pan, he demonstrated how to put the used bowl back down on the counter without any of the leftover egg dripping down the sides.

'If I pour this egg into this pan and turn it back this way,' he says, gesturing to indicate turning the bowl back upwards in an expected way, 'and put it down on the counter, it's gonna drip down the side'

Andrew’s video focuses in on the stove, and as it begins, he is finishing pouring a bowl of beaten eggs into a skillet.

But before he puts the empty bowl — which just has a bit of raw egg still clinging to it — back on the counter, he pauses to narrate.

‘If I pour this egg into this pan and turn it back this way,’ he says, gesturing to indicate turning the bowl back upwards in an expected way, ‘and put it down on the counter, it’s gonna drip down the side.’

‘And it’s gonna be on the outside,’ he says.

This would me a few droplets of egg — or whatever other liquid a person might have in a bowl after pouring — would end up on the counter and need to be cleaned up.

'If I continue to turn like this, the drip will go back into the bowl,' he says

Here, he demonstrates not setting the bowl back upward, but continuing to turn it until it's entirely upside down, then righting it in the other direction

'I can put it on the counter and I don't have an extra mess to clean up on the counter,' he says, showing how the egg doesn't spill over the rim

TikTok hack claims to prevent kitchen food spills, goes viral

Picture this: Your counter sticky with spilled food. Your dishes caked with drippy residue. Somewhere, an infomercial of your plight plays.

Well, you’ll no longer have to struggle with these issues when cooking, thanks to a TikTok video which extolls the virtues of basic physics in the kitchen.

TikTok user Andrew Gatt has recently gone viral with a video demonstrating how home cooks can avoid kitchen spills after pouring food into another vessel.

To demonstrate the pouring pitfalls, Gatt showed himself pouring scrambled eggs from a bowl into a skillet. He then points to the runoff spilling over the lip of the bowl, which continues to drip.

Gatt, who tipped the bowl to his left, explains if he tips it back to the right — as most people normally would when pouring — “it’s going to drip” on his counter.

However! In a moment of brilliance, Gatt continues turning the bowl to the left, allowing physics to kick in, and the drippings to fall back into the bowl — and not on the counter, or whatever surface is below.

“How old were you when you learned this life hack?” Gatt writes on the video.

The video has been viewed more than 1.2 million times and has nearly 50,000 likes from, assuming, eager kitchen novices.
