The spookiest night of the year is almost upon us, which means that many of us will be taking to the kitchen to try our hands at pumpkin carving.

However, as anyone who has ever carved a pumpkin will attest, it is no mean feat.

But the whole thing can be a lot easier in the future thanks to this brilliant hack from Nina Rutherford, who is from Falkirk, Scotland.

Taking to Facebook to share her hack, she posted two pictures of herself taking an electric whisk in and out of a pumpkin.

Nina wrote on Facebook: "I feel I need to pass on this Halloween pumpkin hack: once you have cut the top off get a hand mixer (with one or two whisks on it as both work), use this to detach all the insides of the pumpkin."

Nina then easily removed the insides of the pumpkin by scooping them out with the electric mixer - a process that normally feels like it takes an age.

"Take the whisks right to the edge of the pumpkin so it scrapes the bits off, then just scoop out the insides that are now all mush. It has just taken me five minutes to do the inside of a pumpkin."

One Facebook user described the hack as a "game-changer," while another tagged a friend and said: "I think we've found a genius hack for doing our pumpkin!! You know that pumpkin we keep forgetting about."

A third remarked: "Bet you could've used this hack yesterday instead of scooping it all out."

Meanwhile, a fourth spoke out in defense of the old fashioned way of removing the insides of a pumping, describing it as  "part of the tradition."

Nina said in an interview with Deadline that she's been urging her friends and family to try out the hack for years and decided to help others out too by sharing it to Facebook as well.

So, if you're pumpkin is still sitting in your kitchen waiting to be carved, you know what to do!
