Poached eggs is something we all want to master, but not many of us truly can.
On July 2nd, Chantelle Conway from Farnworth, England, decided to try one of TikTok’s many poached egg hacks to try and get the perfect breakfast, but it backfired.
After attempting to crack a raw egg into a cup of boiling water and place it into the microwave, she was left with devastating burns, and she’s taken to TikTok to share her story.

On July 4th, Chantelle took to TikTok to share what happened to her and warn others against using the viral poached egg hack.
“Hi guys, just a quick message. People have been telling me about the TikTok egg hack doing poached eggs in the microwave. Well, this is what’s happened to me. I’ve literally burnt by full face and my neck off,” she said.
She then revealed that the incident happened on Friday 2nd July at 11am when she put boiling water in a cup and cracked her egg in it as she had been doing for over two years.
However, when she took it out she put the spoon in the cup to take her egg out, the cold spoon shocked the boiling water and caused it to splash back all over her face.
In the video, you can see that Chantelle’s whole face is red, peeling and raw.
Since then, Chantelle has been documenting her recovery journey in a series of other TikTok’s that you can watch on her profile @chantelleconway2020.
