A video of celebrity chef Nigella Lawson pronouncing “microwave” in a rather unheard of manner has taken social media by surprise.

Lawson recently pronounced “microwave” as “mee-kro-waa-way” during a TV show, leaving many wondering whether they had been mispronouncing the word all this time.

The chef has, however, offered an explanation, implying that she was only joking.

The video inspired a flow of wit on Twitter.
