Nigella Lawson has a very particular way of saying ‘microwave’ and people loved her for it
Nigella Lawson is back on the BBC, as you might have seen, with a new series of her cookery show, Cook, Eat, Repeat.
We mention this not because of what she’s been cooking – we’re sure it’s all delicious – but the moment when she used a microwave in last night’s programme.
Specifically, how she pronounces ‘microwave’, as highlighted by @pennyb over on Twitter.

Nigella’s set off a few kitchen fads in the past, and we hope this is another. Speaking only for ourselves, obviously, but we’re never going to call it anything else.

Nigella pronounces microwave as “micro-wav-ay” so that is how we all should pronounce it now. Those are the rules. pic.twitter.com/yA34hTIdJ8

Eternally grateful to Nigella Lawson for letting us know we've all been mispronouncing microwave for the last 50 (or so) years. pic.twitter.com/tfXODGQRDp
