Feel a bit bored and want to try something exciting? Don’t get your hands dirty, just check out TheBackyardScientist channel on Rumble!

Kevin Kohler, a.k.a. The Backyard Scientist has saved many science enthusiasts’ and curious minds’ homes from burning to the ground, by filming insane experiments in his own home and (of course) back yard. Each video comes with a “don’t try this at home” warning for obvious reasons.

He has a whole playlist of videos on his channel where he experimented with how molten aluminum reacts with different surfaces and items. For now, the most basic of experiments.

Namely, one of TheBackyardScientist’s subscribers, Beth Lancina, suggested " should fill any random household items (metal) with molten aluminum like a toaster!..." Ever wondered what happens when you pour 1000 degree molten aluminum metal on a plugged in toaster? Sparks fly, plastic melts, and toasters everywhere shed a tear.

You might be able to notice that the molten metal sticks to everything metallic on the appliance, melts the plastic components, but does not stick to the bread inside? Watch when the slices eject from the heat – they just throw the molten aluminum right off.

Check out the channel here on for more interesting experiments.
