Nigella Lawson Explains Why She Pronounced 'Microwave' The Way She Did In Now Viral Video

Nigella Lawson made headlines this week after she had pronounced the word microwave incorrectly in a video.

Now, the 60-year-old Britsh chef is revealing the story behind the inside joke and wants fans to know she knows how to pronounce it right.

“Well, I do say it like that, but not because I think that’s how it’s actually pronounced,” Nigella shared while responding to one Twitter user’s question about it. “Can this be the end of it now?”

However, she went on, responding to some other tweets about it while promoting her new cookbook, “Eat, Cook, Repeat”.

“[It's] a camp joke that becomes a habit,” Nigella added.

She also poked more fun at the viral joke with a fake Ikea ad that spelled out her pronunciation.
