20+ People That Should Get a Restraining Order From Their Stove

We’ve all had our fair share of accidents in the kitchen — it doesn’t even matter if you’re a beginner or a professional chef. Some people fail when they’re overly excited about making a cake, some fall prey to being too busy at work, and others just want to make a regular sandwich. But there’s one more group of people that shouldn’t be allowed to cook, otherwise, a mess will be impossible to avoid.

We at Bright Side are convinced that anyone can cook. It’s just that some people can create cooking masterpieces easily with no trouble and others need to study long and hard in order to make a good meal.
