MasterChef legend and recent series evictee Poh Ling Yeow has explained why she seems to spend half her life peering straight into the oven, and get this: it’s to make sure shit doesn’t burn. Keep up, people!
Speaking on The Project Monday night, the absolute gun was questioned on her penchant for oven-gazing, and, in one instance, wishing she could stare straight into a blast chiller.
So sad to see Poh go.

“Everyone says ‘Are you trying to make it cook faster?’ It’s not,” she told the panel.
“Again, there is actually a purpose to it, because I’m watching to see if I need to crank it up, and when I see it’s browning too much, I lower the temperature again.”
Revolutionary. I mean, what else did you think was happening? Were viewers convinced the oven itself was a portal to another world, where each challenge was accompanied by an extra half hour of cooking time? Unthinkable.
On that note, Poh said her habit is a necessity, due to the time constraints placed on each episode.
“I’m actually watching to see how I can keep adjusting, because of course, the time frames are always a little bit unrealistic,” she said.
“So I am actually… I am actually doing it for a reason.”
We’re getting right to the pointy end of the current season, but the real winner has already been crowned in our hearts. Peep her comments below:

Poh was eliminated from Masterchef last night, but she's still our national treasure. We caught up with the creative chef to see where she's at now and how she really felt once she realised her journey was over. pic.twitter.com/4pTLDDv47R
