Is 5-Minute Crafts the WORST channel on YouTube?

Some of these hacks are getting kind of
dangerous! Like if kids try that it’s not gonna be good ☠️
Welcome to How To Cook That I’m Ann Reardon and since I did a video exposing
some of So Yummy’s fake recipes people have been inundating me with comments and
sending me clips from other channels saying you should review this channel
and check this one out and I am worried this ughh this stuff! Some of this stuff is
outright dangerous it’s not just fake and bad it’s dangerous for people’s
health! I think we might have found a channel that’s even worse than so yummy so
I thought we’d look at some of these clips together that you’ve asked me to
check out. So check out this one we’re gonna open up tab number one … this is how
to use a toast as always clips today are gonna be 5-Minute Crafts or 5-minute crafts teens … she burned her fingers 🤕 I don’t know about you but if I
put toast in the toaster and it’s that high above the toaster … when I put it
down and then it jumps up toasted it isn’t suddenly much smaller so that you
can’t get it out but sometimes you have smaller bread or those little muffins
and they are quite low and in that case we use this little nifty thing on the
side of the toaster that makes it come high. now tell me is this just Australian
toasters are these the only ones in the world that do this or am I missing something here. Some of these hacks are just ridiculous. What?!?!
What was the purpose of that it doesn’t even say …. nothing happens! How is that a hack??
Is it how to get a day off school with burns to your gums and glue stuck to
your teeth. Some of these hacks are getting kind of dangerous like if kids try that
it’s not going to be good! Five-minute crafts Teens … here we go pour
vodka … I thought this was for teens 🍺 pipe a heart. What was the vodka for? You can
pipe a chocolate heart that looks much nicer just using baking paper. Just pipe
it onto baking paper and here’s a little tip for those of you watching at home
and playing along if you just pipe down a bit from the heart and give it like a
stem then when you push it down into the frosting you can still see the whole
heart just the stem bit goes in there. I’m again just a bit confused as to what
the purpose of the vodka was particularly on five minute craft TEENS! These next
ones I believe are all about keeping food fresh for longer… it’s a good thing
yeah that’s off! Okay get some new milk good idea add salt for retaining
freshness … right 🧐 okay get a bunch of bananas … and wrap plastic wrap around the top and it makes it fresher for longer. Makes the bananas not go off. Good to know. strawberries dip them in vinegar mix
with water and they won’t go moldy. I’m gonna have to test all three of these,
now these are going to take some time I’m gonna have to leave them to sit and
see what happens. So let’s start with the milk two bottles milk same use-by date
on both of them I want them to be identical this is an experiment after
all. Add some salt into one of them like the other one as is.
One week later both milks are perfectly fine except for the one with salt tastes
a little bit salty – as you would imagine. I’m going to leave them for another few
weeks or another few days and we’ll check on them at the end of the video
now bananas we are looking for one exact bunch, I’m gonna split that bunch in
two so that we know they’re all from the same bunch they’re all the exact
same ripeness then I’m going to wrap the plastic around the top just like it said
and put them in this little crate so that I don’t have to touch them or
handle them at all and we’re going to look at those in a week. One week later
and they both look like they are starting to ripen at about the exact
same time there doesn’t seem any noticeable difference to me … the wrapped
one looks exactly the same as the non wrapped one. I’ll update you on the banana
and milk at the very end because we’ve gotta wait another week to do that. now
for our strawberries, I’m gonna get the one punnet so I know that there were all picked around the same time and split it into two separate punnets both with
an equal number of large and small strawberries in it and then one of them
we’re gonna leave just as it is and the other one I’m gonna dunk it in a mixture
of water and vinegar and then just put them both in the fridge and leave them for
a week and see what happens. ⏰ It’s been a week and the ones that were dipped in vinegar are starting to look a little bit moldy I can see some mold
starting to grow there. The ones that were not dipped in vinegar are actually
looking okay … a way to make them go moldy faster and taste of vinegar! Not ideal. Now
we’re just miss-educating children and teens … what is this generation gonna grow
up thinking they’ve got all of this crazy wrong information in their head!
Let’s have a look at this one so we’ve got cream, sugar, activated charcoal! Hold
it hold it hold it activated charcoal is what you give people if they’ve
swallowed poisons or they’ve had a drug overdose💀 the reason you give it to
them is it absorbs the poison so it stops it being absorbed in to your
bloodstream. I remember one time that we were at the hospital and the guy in the
cubicle next to us had been given activated charcoal for that reason and
he vomited and it was just like squid ink all over the floor this black puddle
of vomit it was disgusting but anyway that’s one of the side effects of having
activated charcoal as it can make you feel nauseated and it can make you vomit
but … let’s put it in a recipe I mean if someone’s on medication and it absorbs
their medication so they can’t absorb it into their bloodstream … no harm in that, surely! not dangerous 😝 So then what they’re doing is adding dry
ice and then letting it sit and serving it up … do you really need me to test this
one it’s gonna be gross? Oh well let’s make it anyway.
Mine is pale grey, theirs is black but if we look back theirs went from pale grey
to black so I assume they added a lot of black food coloring between that frame
and that one so let’s add some black food coloring into mine. Now I’ll crush
up some dry ice in a food processor can add some powdered dry ice in and mix
that in and let it bubble. Now I’ve let mine sit and it’s not getting any firmer
it is still just soft so I’m gonna have to add more dry ice and mix that in. That
looks more like it … now I just have to put it in a cone and
get Dave to try it 😇 he’s not on any medication so it should be okay. Ugh what is what is it? Activated charcoal
ice cream🍦 It’s gritty it’s like it tastes weird. Blearghhh. And the final step in this recipe
that they forgot to tell you was to tip it down the sink. Okay the next one you
pour a glass of bleach and add strawberries and then you wait … what is
this⁉️ This is not just this is not hacks to make things look weird … this is “Crazy
Cool Food Hacks You Can Actually Make At Home” … that’s the
title of the video! So if some kids actually make this at home and eat these white
strawberries that’s gonna poison them☠︎ If you want white strawberries they’re a
separate breed of strawberries …you get a plant that will give you white
strawberries instead of red strawberries a completely different type of
strawberry you don’t put them in BLEACH! Anyway let’s put them in Bleach
cos we’re testing out these recipes to see what happens when we do. Okay these
are going in the bleach bowl and 15 minutes later they are not white they’re
tan because it’s taking a good couple of hours to get enough of the red off the
strawberry so that they actually look white. Now I assume that you have to wash
these in water … even after washing them they still feel slimy. Yuck! If I cut it
in half that might be the best way to show you
what I’m feeling. Look at that the bleach has soaked in that far into the
strawberry and it’s slimy and disgusting and if you ate that you would get a good
amount of bleach into your stomach and you’d been needing to call the poisons
information or eat some of that activated charcoal ice cream maybe
that’s why they’re in the one video 😂 If you do see a video like this that you
think is dangerous for kids to actually make it home then just click on the
dot-dot-dot under the video and hit report and then you can just follow the
steps through there and say why you’re reporting it. Now YouTube reviews all of
those reports so if they think no this is perfectly safe for kids to eat
strawberries that have been soaked in Bleach for an hour then they can let
that through but if not then they can check it and actually say no this video
it’s not safe. Just leaving a comment under the video that’s not helpful … if
anything leaving a comment under their video tells the algorithm this is a
great video I’ll show it to more people. We’ve moved on from just recipes
that are fakes and plain don’t work to things that are poisonous and dangerous!
Let’s hope the next one is not so bad okay we’ve got Coke we’re adding milk
and now we’ve got transparent soda. surely nobody sits down thinking this is
a good idea I mean who goes and buys coke and adds milk (apart from me
obviously) who goes and buys coke and adds milk to it so that then it can
swirl around and leave you with transparent coke that looks more like
tadpole water scooped from a puddle on the side of the road and then pours it into
a glass and makes their poor husband drink it without telling them what it is?
What is it? Orangey fizzy something. Would you drink
it is it nice? If I was really thirsty.
Do you want to know what it is? Yeah. Coke with milk in it. Oh I don’t like that idea
at all! it’s like curdled milk … but I
poured off the curdles so you’ve got what’s left. I don’t want it! I guess
that’s just more money down the sink more ingredients what a waste.
next one I’m not even commenting I’m not trying that. Why why is the question and
“views” is the answer! You can send me links to recipes or hacks that you want
me to test out for you… just email them to the email that is in the description

  1. I went to cold stone the other day and got the Halloween cake batter ice cream and I looked and had the same graine feel as the charcoal ice cream

  2. I used to have a small glass of coke with some milk in it, but would never leave it just sitting like that… it's tasty (at least in my opinion) if it's just a small glass and drank right away

  3. I 100% support you debunking these dangerous videos and thank you for doing so! But I just wanted to throw out there that the apple on the drill spade bit attachment actually works; I've done it a handful of times in the past. Why? A few years ago I got gifted a ton of apples from a friend with a tree and I made a bunch of apple pie filling and apple sauce with them, and that was absolutely the quickest way to make quick work of peeling them. It's absolutely overkill for a single apple, but when you're dealing with 20 pounds of apples that need peeling it's super handy.

  4. I caught my teens having a party with vodka. I was about to be mad, until they told me they were making chocolate hearts! Thank heavens!

  5. If you’re reading a food recipe that starts with “pour a glass of bleach,” stop reading and throw the book away. No, burn it so no one else can get hold of it.

  6. Ann, good call not to stick around to see what happens when you stick an apple on a rotating drill bit. You don’t want to know, and I don’t, either.

  7. With the toaster thing, it is not only Australian toasters that can push up your toast, I'm in Canada and mine does that aswell

  8. I have actually tried the apple one, when you are pealing 100s of apples for canning at a time then it’s super useful. Way fast it’s one that’s actually a good one!

  9. Homemade ice cream always tastes worse but believe me, charcoal ice cream is amazing. I bought it in Dubai at a professional place so obviously it would've tasted better. But please try it from an actual ice cream place cause it's delicious.

  10. I don't think you should put those bananas very closely, as the ethylene gas from the other banana will go over the other bananas, and will eventually ripen both of them. I may not know for sure, but from personal experience, that cover the stem thing definitely helped me when I was still in college and was saving money, which makes the bananas last a bit longer than before. Other than that, great educational video 😀

  11. I love it's assumed that all these hack are meat to be consumed. If you believe all these then your stupid. There's nothing wrong with trying to recreate them.

  12. One time I was watching one of their videos and I saw making an exacto knife out of a sharpener blade! (I was 7) I still have the scar :/

  13. Yum I love strwberries dipped in bleach. And after eating them you get an amazing small tour of the hospital. 😂 lol don’t ever put bleach or chemicals in your body

  14. Notice they drop the strawberries in with bare hands …BUT, pick them out of the bleach with rubber gloves!!!! 😲😕😣 Sadly, it's doubtful that a 10 year old would notice this😢

  15. I hope you get to 7 billion subs or whatever the global population is.

    Thank you so much. And you have me in absolute stitches.

    "You'll have to go to the hospital or hey eat some of that charcoal ice cream."

    I literally need you to do a U.S tour.

  16. Can we request Youtube to place this video to everyone? How to Cook That should always be paired with So Yummy and 5-Minute Crafts?

  17. Great video but just wanted to add the bananas should actually work if you separate the two bunches it’s cause of a chemical called ethylene

  18. 1:17
    Lmao dude my shitty literally-dollar store toaster with the snapped off lever and the potentially fire-causing janky electrical plug has that feature. This 5MC clip is 110% bullshit and retarded.

  19. I am a pastry chef, and I can answer the chocolate in vodka. One of the garnishes we make at work is chocolate sticks. To do that, we get liquor, generally kirschwasser, vodka, or white rum, and put it in the freezer. It won't freeze because of the alcohol content. Then you pour it into a deep dish or container, taller than what you want to make. Then you pipe tempered chocolate into the cold liquor. It causes the chocolate to instantly set, because it is colder than ice, and stays cold for longer. We can make some pretty cool looking garnishes with this technique, like literal sticks, and one of our colleagues made a nest with it as well. I am also not sure, but I think we use liquor as the alcohol may help stop the chocolate from seizing, and it evaporates more easily than water when we remove it.

  20. I actually do have and often use a little pair of wooden tongs made specifically for use with your toaster. I never would have bought the self the first time, but I’ll certainly replace them when they bite the dust! My favorite bread is about half the height of a toaster slot, so even lifting up on the slider does me no good. I also have nerve damage and struggle to feel heat with my fingertips, so I try my best to keep them well away from unnecessary heat sources to prevent burns.

  21. Somebody else has made the charcoal ice cream and for them it came out like real ice cream and it tasted sweet and stuff

  22. My family actually drinks coke mixed with milk regularly. We drink it right away and it doesn't curdle like in the video unless the milk is off (you must have waited quite a while for it to curdle like that). A lot of people think it's weird, but I grew up with it and like it. Ever heard of a soda float? Same concept, just with less sugar.

  23. excuse me Ann but that hot glue one was just a starter to some more hacks it wasn't a hack itself the bleach strawberry hack they never told you to eat it so don't think they did say to eat it okay

    love your channel i only just subscribed today and I've already watched like 30 of your videos

  24. Can you make a video of how to make ice cream
    Since it’s summer in Australia and it’s gonna get hottt ☀️🔥

  25. The banana one wouldn’t worked because if the top off gases and I’m guessing that’s what they’re trying to stop I would think it would be the whole banana …but anyways if the top is offgassing and you put them beside each other of course they both would ripen…
    I still think that the whole banana offgases I’m assuming I’m not googling that maybe later. Hahahahaha

    Hahahahahahahaha the ice cream. Hahahahaha I’m crying Hahahaha!

  26. Just saying the coke think probabaly wasn’t for consumption just for the experiment to show what would happen just like some of their other videos

  27. I’m sure the salt is just to stop the milk tasting like it’s gone sour. The Victorians used to add Borax to milk to stop it tasting sour, the problem was, it didn’t stop the bacteria in the milk from multiplying. They reckon it caused many deaths amongst people, especially infants, during that period. Some of these “hacks” are just deadly and completely irresponsible.

  28. Nice using dry ice – hope there is an open window

    Edit: Who the ** would put food into bleach?! Is this some kind of govermental project to clean the gen pool?!

  29. activated carbon is often used in water filtration systems. So if its safe enough to drink water thats been in contact with it, it's safe enough to eat ice cream made of it! /s (no its not safe when used in ice cream, don't do that.)

  30. Some of these are shocking, but the ice cream one reminded me of something. Theres a Filipino restaurant in London that serves something called Black Buko ice cream which includes activated charcoal. I THINK its supposed to be traditional, and no I didnt try it.

  31. Sorry for being ignorant but can't you wash your teeth with activated charcoal to whiten them? 😳Also in my country you can buy them in form of circular pills and used them if you have stomach issues…

  32. But hey, atleast when they get poisoned by the strawberries they can eat the activated charcoal ice cream.

    I only just realised she actually said that in the video.

  33. I kinda wish you explained the pepper thing a bit more, cause I didn't know this was a thing, that people were claiming that peppers had genders, but it sounded plausible to me, so a little explanation as to why it wasn't true would've been nice.

  34. 1:20 i live in USA and on my toster, the thing you push down to make it toast,you can pull it up and it pushes the toast higher to grab

  35. @10:29 It looks like floaters that were difficult to flush down after a large load was done…. 🤢

    Edit: No offense….

  36. Adding activated charcoal is used in little bit’s to make black ice cream it’s perfectly safe to eat for people on medication if professionally made I’m on medication myself and I had no problems 😅
