Cooking is a skill. One must practice to continuously get better. Yet, just like with any skill, there are some that just cannot figure it out. They can keep trying over and over but in the end they should just leave the kitchen. If left alone they might burn down the kitchen or they will cook food that is completely inedible. For the safety of themselves and the stomachs of their friends and family they need to be 86’ed from the kitchen forever.
Here are 50 people that should never pick up a kitchen utensil or ingredient again.
1. Cheesy Garlic Bread
Cheesy garlic bread is a favorite guilty pleasure for many people, including myself. What is pictured here is a disgrace to the name cheesy garlic bread. The biggest concern is the missing garlic. Is it underneath the thick and unmelted cheese? Who knows but we are not going to try and figure it out.
2. Pizza Toppings Gone Awry
Acceptable pizza toppings will forever be an ongoing disagreement between friends and family. So, making individual pizzas is a great idea, unless it is this small pizza. The toppings and cheese have formed into a messy ball of slime. The pineapple slice does not even seem to make sense between the capers and meat.
3. Beans with Condiments
How many people, do you think, are going to try these beans? The “chef” made a large batch but we doubt the beans are going to be gone by the end of the meal. Many people add ingredients to their beans but ketchup and mustard are not usually the ingredients added.
4. Ketchup Noodles
PSA: Ketchup is not a substitute for tomato sauce. We repeat, ketchup is not a substitute for tomato sauce. This person wanted spaghetti but their ketchup “sauce” does not make spaghetti. That dish is just ketchup noodles, gross.
5. Are They Edible?
These vegan “biscuits” do not look appetizing in the least! Eating vegan is hard enough but when the food looks like that, it would seem near impossible. This person is going to need to buy precooked vegan food because they should not be allowed in the kitchen.
6. A Little Crispy
Some people order their pizza extra crispy, but this is taking that to the extreme. It is always a good idea to set a timer when you have food in the oven. If not, you might forget about it and have your pizza come out this crispy.
7. Donnie Darko’s Easter Bunny
Pinterest food recipes always seem like a great idea until you actually try to recreate it. This Easter bunny resembles an evil bunny more than the cute bunny it was supposed to look like. Another Pinterest fail has been created.
8. Omelette Anyone?
A father wanted to surprise his wife and children with a nice breakfast omelette. He did surprise them but not in the way he wanted to. His wife must know she has to be the cook in their house from that moment on.
9. Eggplant With A Side Of Knife
She wanted to cook a new eggplant recipe. She did cook a new recipe but not the one she was following. She created a burnt eggplant with a side of a melted knife left on the cooking sheet in the oven. This is a cooking fail and a utensil fail.
10. Homemade Cinnamon Roll
Delicious homemade cinnamon rolls were made in this household. He wanted to reheat one for himself but definitely messed up the directions given. He reheated his one cinnamon roll at 400° for 6 hours. That was just a bit too long, okay it was way too long.
11. Charcuterie Board For Children
This might look like a charcuterie board for children but is not. A grown adult thought this would count as a legitimate charcuterie board. The longer you look at the picture the more outrageous food items you will find.
12. Twelve Year Old Chef
An aspiring chef lives in this household. She is 12 years old and already loves to cook. She wanted to cook a surprise dinner for her family and this was the result, green pancakes. Luckily for this 12 year old, her family is too nice and ate up her green dinner.
13. Blancmange Newbie
Blancmange is a gelatin dessert that is usually made with milk or cream. It is known for how sweet it tastes. This attempt does not even deserve to be called blancmange. It is only a inedible gooey mess.
14. Tuna Tacos
Would you eat these cold tunafish tacos? I hope you said no because they do not look appetizing in the least. It is almost as if the “chef” only had cheese, tunafish, and tortillas in the house and decided to combine them. It does not look like a good idea.
15. Breakfast Pizza
Breakfast pizza is totally an acceptable breakfast dish. This breakfast pizza is not. It looks as if the egg, cheese and pork will completely slide off the pizza dough any second.
16. Spaghetti Taco
Some cuisines should not be combined including spaghetti and tacos. This recipe does not even make sense. Why would any person think this would be a delicious idea? Keep that person out of the kitchen forever.
17. Can You Guess The Toast Toppings?
Can you guess the toppings on this piece of toast? I will give you a hint, these toppings are usually on a hamburger. If you guessed mustard and mayonnaise than you would be correct. Why would anyone want to eat mayo and mustard on toast?
18. Small Noodles or Cheerios?
It seems as if this could be SpaghettiO’s with different sauce, which would not be too bad. Sadly, this is a baked Cheerios casserole. Cheerios should never be included in a casserole, ever.
19. Alien Eggs
These eggs are completely edible, unlike every other food item seen so far. Yet, how the eggs have formed into an alien’s head makes it hard to want to eat them. Those eggs need to be cut up ASAP before taking the first bite or the person might have alien nightmares later.
20. Breakfast Food Mix Up
When it comes to breakfast food scrambled eggs and pancakes are always a great choice. Scrambled pancakes do not seem like a great choice though. This “chef” needs to reevaluate their breakfast ideas before trying to cook again.
21. Mega Vodka Gummy
Did this person fail or create a great new idea? Instead of vodka infused gummy bears, he accidentally created one mega vodka gummy. Better luck next time.
22. Messy Food, Messy Kitchen
If you do not know how to work a kitchen appliance, do not use it. This person jumped right into cooking a toasted ham and cheese sandwich but did not know they needed to spray the appliance before use. Rookie mistake that will take a long time to clean up.
23. Salmon Colored Desserts
Brownies are delicious. Strawberry desserts are delicious. Strawberry brownies that look like pieces of salmon are probably delicious but they sure do not look like it. Presentation is key when sharing desserts and the strawberries in the corners could not save the presentation of these brownies.
24. Exact Replica
When one is just learning to bake, start small. One cannot try to duplicate such a complex dessert and except great results. If you do, your doggie cupcakes will probably turn out just like this person’s did. Small steps people, small steps.
25. Good Enough For The Dog
If you do not know what Japanese sponge cake is supposed to look like, please google it. It does not look anything like this. This Japanese sponge cake is a disgrace to the name. Luckily for the “chef” the family dog grabbed it when everyone was turned out. It might not have turned out well but it was good enough for the dog.
26. Mom’s Cooking Style
Usually people miss their mom’s cooking when they leave the house. This mother only has one cooking style. She puts anything she is cooking into a pot of boiling water and let’s it boil. She does this for everything, including french fries. That is what she is cooking in the picture above.
27. Rock Bottom Nachos
Nachos are a great snack. These nachos are not a great snack. These are the nachos one has to eat when they have hit rock bottom. Those sad nachos are only for people that have no other choice.
28. Follow The Recipe
If one does not know how to cook well, follow recipes. Recipes are a life saver for people that are uncomfortable in the kitchen. If you are uncomfortable in the kitchen and decide to do it yourself, you might end up with this guacamole. It was made with an avocado that was not ripe yet and mixed with blue cheese and Italian dressing. Does that even constitute as guacamole?
29. Fails Can Still Be Yummy
This is not a quesadilla, even though it was supposed to be. While it did not turn out like the supposed quesadilla, the cook states that it was still delicious. Kitchen fails can still be yummy when the recipe has been followed as well as they could.
30. Soup Or Pasta?
Do you think this person meant to cook a pasta or soup dish? If you guessed both than you would be correct. Yes, this person wanted to combine tuna soup, pasta, and cheese. No one really understands why but it was the intent of this dish.
31. Hot Dog Sandwich
Desperate times calls for desperate measures. Creating a hot dog sandwich is the definition of a desperate measure. This sandwich looks very unappetizing and only makes a person sad more than full and happy.
32. Find Out The Hard Way
Newbie chefs have to find out basic facts the hard way. This newbie tried to bake the chicken nuggets on a plastic tray. They found out the hard way that plastic will melt in extreme heat. What a mess.
33. Expensive Fail
Are you wondering what even happened to create this disaster? The “chef” explains,
“This is what happens when safety features in a pressure cooker fail.”
34. Wrong Holiday
Easter is not the holiday where you are supposed to scare people. That would be Halloween. This person must have mixed up the two holidays because these Easter chicks are terrifying.
35. Expectation Vs. Reality
People with no experience in the kitchen have their expectations too high. They aim to create treats and dishes that seem easy but are too complicated. This is the perfect example of expectation versus reality.
36. A For Effort
Rookie mistake: paper will not help your dessert form. It is too lightweight. If one tries to use the paper as the forming structure, your dessert might end up just like this.
37. Simple Cheese Toast
A great piece of advice is if you have no cooking experience start with simple dishes, such as cheese toast. If you cannot even make cheese toast, you might want to stay out of the kitchen. This roommate is the perfect example of needing to stay out of the kitchen.
38. Left The Husband Alone
One wife created her own homemade cinnamon rolls. She had to run an errand, so she told her husband to take the rolls out in 15 minutes. She made sure to tell him multiple times to not forget and he promised he wouldn’t. He did. His wife should have known better than to trust him with any job in the kitchen.
39. Learning Curve
There is a learning curve in cooking. This girl just learned that cookies will expand in the oven. Her snowman looked great before but expanded into one fat snowman. She is not smiling anymore.
40. Proud As Ever
This does not count as bread. The baker does not care about any outside opinions though and is proud as ever with his homemade bread. He is going to have to eat that bread alone though.
