A woman has divided opinion online after making spaghetti bolognese using just her microwave.

Whitney Ainscough, from South Yorkshire, shared a tutorial of her “quick and easy way” to prepare the classic Italian dish.

His video, which was published under the title @itsmebadmom on TikTok, it’s already been viewed by more than 1.7 million people, and commenters aren’t sure what to make of the cooking hack.

In the clip, armed with a bag of frozen ground beef and a plate of chopped onions, she set about preparing her dinner.

She instructed the spectators: ‘Come and make tea with me. “So you want to put the frozen mince in a jar and then put it in the microwave.”

The TikToker filled a plastic jar to the brim with the minced meat, before scraping some raw onions on top.

He added: “This is for spaghetti bolognese and you can cook it in the microwave.” Put it all in.

‘You’ll want to put the onions in and mix them together. The onions also go in the jar.

“Then all you have to do is put it in the microwave and it will cook up delicious, as it goes down you can add more onions.”

Placing his own jar in the microwave, he explained, “Pick it for about 10 minutes and then we’ll come back when it’s ready.”

Then he returns to film the results and takes out the jar of already cooked minced meat and onion.

The South Yorkshire mum said: “It’s been like this for about 10 minutes, I’ve mixed it halfway through.”

‘It looks good. This is how to make spaghetti bolognese in a damn microwave.

Then he returns to film the results, pulling out the jar of already cooked minced meat and onion.

‘All you need to do now is add the chopped tomatoes, pepper, salt and garlic.

‘Add all that in here, put it back in for five minutes and you’re good to go. Just put the pasta in a jar too and prepare it.”

While some viewers praised the clever mum, others were quick to criticize her unique cooking method, insisting it would take the same amount of time to prepare the meal in a pan with fresh ingredients.

One shocked user wrote: “I refuse to believe this exists,” and a second added: “I love lazy tea but if you’re going to make spag bol (sic) just make spag bol.”

A third chimed in with: “Public service announcement: you can cook ground beef straight from frozen in a pan.”

Meanwhile, others joked: ‘Spaghetti Bolacouncil Estate’ and ‘Are you on Just Eat?’

Someone else commented: “I should have passed by when I saw frozen minced meat, but I was curious.”

Others added: ‘Is this legal?’ and ‘I’m too lazy to microwave my beans. This has made me feel much better.”

Some viewers also commented on the state of the microwave, writing, “OMG look at the microwave,” along with a crying emoji and “The microwave (has) been through two wars.”

However, some people defended the mother and argued that the video is useful for those who do not have access to an oven.

One viewer said: “It may not be everyone’s cup of tea but for people who don’t have a kitchen this could be a lifesaver seeing healthy meals available.”

Another wrote: “I never knew you could make mince in the microwave.”

A third argued: ‘This is a really good video for those who don’t have access to other facilities due to maybe just moving to a new house or can’t afford a kitchen.

“I really think it’s good for those who don’t have the option as well done to give people a new idea.”

It comes after Whitney previously racked up views for making a video about her daughter’s school shoes.

She took to TikTok in September last year to reveal her dismay after shelling out £100 to buy her daughter the best designer shoes for the new school term, only to be told they didn’t fit the uniform policy.

The mother-of-three explained how she had bought Vivienne Westwood heels for her 11-year-old daughter, who has just started Year 7, but became angry after receiving the message from the school.

She added that she had bought her daughter a new pair of school shoes, arguing that the fashion choice has no effect on her daughter’s learning ability.
