After a fan commented: "Microwave said very oddly on your last program?" she replied: "I know. On purpose."
Discussing her fun way of referring to the kitchen appliance, one Twitter user wrote, "2020 has thrown a lot of curveballs at us but I was truly not expecting the way Nigella Lawson says microwave to be one of them."

Nigella released a book of the same name earlier this year, and recently opened up about writing a new series of recipes during lockdown, as people queued up to go shopping in supermarkets.
Back in October, she told The Guardian: "It was hard. But I suppose that survival thing kicked in, and it felt important to think about food because it became clear [during lockdown] that it gave structure, sustenance and pleasure.
She added that she enjoyed her enforced break from work, saying: "[It was] wonderful, which I know sounds awful. But I’m very happy not having to fill up my life going to things. I very much like having no public life."
