What’s the best way to open an Oxo cube?

If you spend ages peeling the packaging and waiting for the stock to dissolve in boiling water, you’re probably doing it wrong.

Blogger Louise Pentland recently shared a cooking hack that makes the process a lot easier.

If you crush the packet with your hand and release the flaps at the side, you can pour the crumbled cube straight into your dish.

As you’ve crushed it into powder, it should dissolve more quickly too.

On her Instagram stories, Louise asked her 2.5 million followers: “Did you know Oxo cubes do this? Squish into little sachets for easier crumbling/pouring? Cooking tips with Lou.”

Louise’s tip went down a storm with her followers – who thought it was game-changing.

One commenter replied: “Shut the front door! No way?!?!

“Omg how did I not know that?! I always wondered why the wrapper is folded in such a weird way.

“Wow, that’s blown my tiny mind. Thank you for sharing!”

So will you be trying the cooking hack next time you make stock? Let us know in the comments section below.
