Some people just have a knack for cooking. At any given time, you can find them artfully mastering a roast chicken, chopping vegetables with the precision of a master chef, or delicately plating items as if their kitchen was five star restaurant.
Other people mostly eat cereal while standing over their sink, and with good reason: They’re disasters in the kitchen.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a completely useless when it comes to cooking, and as such, I can totally relate to this list. If this sounds familiar to you, abandon your futile attempts at preparing an edible dinner and check out these hilarious photos instead. Your brain and your taste buds will thank you for it.
#1. This was a pizza in another life.
#2. Making your mornings just a little bit uglier.
#3. This can was just sick of existing.

#12. Who doesn’t love a good chewy cupcake?
#13. Not the best place for the plastic.
#14. This doesn’t look like eggs in the movies.

Oh that’s new, what black ingredient did you use?
Not every blender is easy to use.
Whatcha cookin’? Molten lava?
Just blame it on an “earthquake.”
Burnt or chocolate overload?
That’s actually bacon under there?
Pots 101: they’re not supposed to look like this.
What have these eggs ever done to you?
No xx, I don’t think it’s supposed to be chewy.
That’s supposed to be a cookie?
Sometimes things just fall through the cracks.
How does this even happen?
I call this masterpiece burnt stew.
But electric kettles aren’t supposed to be…
Leggo my eggo, or just keep it.
Nice and fluffy, just how I like it.
That feeling when you’ve left your marshmallow toasting in the fire for too long.
Try a whole s’mores pie.
Maybe take it a little easy with the waffle mix.
One round of rainbow throw-up coming right up.
Yeah let’s just melt plastic while we’re at it.
If you can’t handle the heat, get out of the kitchen.
When straining goes wrong.
Anyone else like their croissants well done?
You can’t show fear.
I heard rice cookers are very functional.
Because melted plastic looks just like frosting but cheaper and more delicious.
If this is what eating healthy means then count me out.
Maybe you should consider a bigger pot.
If it’s really really really your last resort.
