Many things can happen in the kitchen, but not everything you plan turns out perfect each time, even for pros.
For first-timers, it can be frustrating to learn how to cook even the simplest recipe when you don’t know how to operate the appliances. And it’s easy to see overcooked dishes if you don’t set the timer right.
Pepper shaker lids coming off have even happened a lot of times. Prepared food going to the floor? We’ve seen that too.
Cooking can drain your energy if you are not extra careful. You may end up with nothing to eat when you don’t get the recipe right, or at least the cooking.
Here are 65 kitchen fails that people encountered at their first attempts, and other times they just felt it’s a good day to cook.
1. Roasted eggplant with a melted knife
How come this happened?
2. Cake in the rice cooker
Well, the result is disappointing. We will just wait for a much better-looking rice cooker cake to convince us.
3. Grilled cheese with paper
Cheese with its paper unremoved? Really? Dad must have thought the paper is edible.
4. Tomato splatter
Before they continue with meal prep, they need to clean up first.
5. Black pan
It must be butter that you’re melting and not the pan itself.

6. Just a smoothie
But, this didn’t turn out right. They must have added everything nutritious and green that they found in the fridge. They better be drinking water than gulp this smoothie.
7. Far from the cakespiration
Better luck next time! Well, the cat is more excited to try it.
8. Lemon tea
It looks like it took several hours in the crockpot and water wasn’t adequate. Quantity and time must not be ignored when cooking.
9. French baguettes
Can we even take a bite of this one without losing a tooth?
10. Banana bread attempt
11. Pizza or board cutter?
This must be a very high-quality product that they bought. Or is it the board that’s thin crust?
12. Chocolate cupcakes
A better way to decorate the cupcake is suggested in this.
13. Birthday cake
The husband can only hope for a better cake on his next birthday.
14. Burnt cheese toast
From the looks of it, the problem is the right timing and right temperature.
The diner can only look at her sandwich in disappointment after realizing that there’s still a plastic wrapper. She has already eaten half of it, so she can just remove it herself and remind the cook about it.
16. No sandwich this time
You can perhaps stuff the hole instead.
17. Chocolate waffles anyone?
Who will bother to take a bite of this and find out how it tastes?
18. Brownie pizza
19. Never give up
Never giving up, they go for a second try and the result is near perfect bread on the right.
20. Black bean burrito
If you think you are resourceful and creative for doing it because you ran out of tortillas, wait and see what happens next.
21. Boiled and exploding eggs
Wait for the eggs to boil before you do what’s more important, it won’t take longer than 10 minutes anyway.
22. Blue Thai basil chicken
The person who’s cooking this just turned around for a minute, but the 19-year-old brother grabs that chance to put blue food dye in it.
This is somebody’s first time though, let’s wait for the next. We hope it’ll be much better.
24. Sugar syrup mess
The next time you have damaged utensils in the kitchen, you better hide them somewhere or throw them away if you have no plans of using them anymore.
26. Red-dotted cheesecake
The cheesecake looks like it has a skin disease.
27. Corona cakes
To his surprise, he gets Corona cakes instead. Or we can call it ‘pandemicakes.’
28. Banana bread fail
There’s no problem though if it’s the first attempt. If this tastes better than it looks, then it is a good one. One can certainly do better next time.
29. Sweet potato no more
30. Wrong timing
There’s no cleaning necessary for this bowl, they just probably threw it away.
31. Still a happy thanksgiving?
32. Cut in two
33. Egg yolk escape
34. Bread with a tablespoon
One needs to be extra careful next time.
35. Not a lucky day
First, he drops his sandwich in the parking lot.
Second, he goes to the kitchen to make pasta but the pot slipped and the pasta goes to the floor.
Third, he gets a second pot of pasta but the handle breaks and the pasta mixes along with the first batch on the ground.
He can only sob and ask, “Will the universe let me eat tonight?”
36. Yummy pizza on melting board
Say goodbye to the pizza!
37. The rise
You’ll end up with the same mess if you do. So let this be a lesson for all before making bread.
38. I tried
This is the best that she came up with. She can do better next birthday.
39. Jelly bun
You can think of other creative ways that give a better-looking result.
