One man's lunch exploded all over his kitchen after his blender failed, while a woman smashed her glass Pyrex jug after burning cashew nuts in the microwave. In another photo, a man dangerously tries to cook nuggets on top of a toaster, and finally, one woman managed to burn a piece of greaseproof paper but failed to cook the pie she was trying to make for her dinner.
