What happens when you drop a white hot cube of tungsten onto a pile of innocent Oreos? You send the Oreos to a fiery grave.

The element tungsten on the periodic table is a strong metal that is “used in steels to increase hardness and strength,” among other applications, according to Encyclopaedia Britannica. It also has the highest melting point of all metals, and is highly dense — its name literally means “heavy stone” in Swedish.

So when a cube of tungsten is heated up until it is white hot and dropped onto another object, it’s going to get messy. That’s exactly what happened when some poor Oreos found themselves in the line of fire. You can see it in action on the YouTube channel Beyond the Press (caution: the hosts utter foul language out of excitement), a creatively destructive companion channel to the Finland-based Hydraulic Press Channel, which crushes just about everything you can think of.

“This is the easiest way to burn some calories without doing any exercise,” host Lauri Vuohensilta says as the Oreos sizzle in the name of science. “They burn very, like, clean. There isn’t any, like, smoke coming out.”

In the video, Vuohensilta and his wife Anni also use the tungsten on a hot knife and on some baking supplies. The baking materials, a bunch of stacked cupcake holders, held up surprisingly well, barely molting at all given what they were up against, although they did smoke much more than the Oreos.
