Woman divides opinion as she reveals her ‘genius’ hack for cooking pasta during a power cut | The Sun

A WOMAN has shared her savvy hack for cooking pasta when there’s a power cut and it’s left people in hysterics.

Chrissy J took to TikTok to share her 'survival' hack where she cooked pasta using a wax burner – and many have hailed it genius'.

Chrissy decided to get creative when she allegedly experienced a power cut but needed something to eat. 

Not being able to use her hob to cook herself some pasta, she took to her wax burner for a little help.

Usually a wax burner is used for melting scented wax with a tealight underneath, to keep your home smelling fresh.

However, Chrissy swapped the fresh wax melt scents to cook herself some tomato and cheese pasta instead.
