The video, which was posted online by @cookingcards, showed fans that they shouldn't be pouring the food and water into the colander — they should be putting the colander into the pan.

In the clip, which has gained more than 62,000 likes, they showed how it people would usually do it by pouring the pasta into it like a bowl over the sink.

But when they showed the supposed "correct" way, they placed a colander, which was roughly the same size as the saucepan, like a lid, and used it to drain the water into the sink.

In the caption, they wrote: "You've been using a colander wrong…"

TikTok viewers were left stunned by the hack as they took to the comments declaring it to be "genius".

One user said: "Actual genius."

Another added: "No more sink pasta."

A third commented: "Omg I didn’t even know this myself."

However, some people were divided over the hack as they claimed it would put bacteria in their food.
