BAGELS are an all-time favorite breakfast item for most of us.
There’s nothing better than a fresh, warm bagel topped with a dollop of cream cheese and lox.
The bad thing about bagels, 然而, is they often get stale after only a couple days.
A woman named Amalyah Oren, who goes by @AkoCreative on TikTok, said she was shocked to discover this simple bagel hack that keeps them tasting fresh for much longer.
In her clip, 她开始了: “As a Jew from the northeast, I thought I knew everything about bagels, but I just learned this wild hack.
“You run the bagel under water before toasting it.”
She filmed someone grabbing an everything bagel, and giving it a quick, light rinse under the sink faucet.
“Then you pop it in the oven whole. You don’t cut it before toasting it,” Oren warned.

She said that it is extremely important you toast the bagel in the oven rather than in a traditional toaster.
“And then I swear you end up with a bagel that tastes like it was just baked fresh.”
Responding to a comment that asked for the oven temperature and amount of time to toast, she said to preheat the oven to 375 and toast for five minutes.
The clip received over one million views and hundreds of comments praising Oren for her hack.
“Why don’t they teach us this stuff in school,” one person quipped.
“It’s crazy. It really does taste like a fresh bagel,” added a second.
More users shared the way they use this hack for other foods as well:
“Works for stale baguettes too,” said one.
“Same with reheating pizza! It really works,” added another.
