I started off doing it as I was idly watching the onions and meat browning when starting a spag bol or chili (or similar) when living in bedsits many years ago - it was a way to avoid "making a mess".

Omah, It sounds like you were very progressive!

I've become a Knorr stock cube person in recent years and am now prepared to come out of the closet about it.

If I ever go back to Oxo, I'll remember to give the sachet way of doing things a try.

Foxy, This is the reaction of most people as we just automatically open the foil, remove the cube and sprinkle it!

No point in reading the instructions as they donít tell you how to do it!

If you don't want to make a mess, then just open the cube over the pan, or a saucer, instead of all losing half of it over the worktop.
Mups, This thread is not about the taste! It is about a method of crumbling an Oxo cube with less mess.
Many people didnít know this and welcome the advice.

Anyway, if you do not do it how Lynda Bellingham did it in the Oxo advert, your doing it wrong because we all know how real and to the point adverts are don't we?

mart, I have never used Knorr stock cubes. I always think they are the poor cousin to Oxo.
