These days a lot of people are cooking more and eating out less, and apparently many folks have gotten really good at getting dinner on the table fast.
A new survey finds:
- One-third of Americans say they can get dinner ready in 10 minutes or less.
- 61% of people say their quick skills in the kitchen are a source of pride.
- 42% admit they pretend they are on a cooking show to see how fast they can prepare dinner.
- 46% have secret “cheats” to help put together a quick meal.
- Those shortcuts include:
- Incorporating pre-made ingredients into the recipe (43%)
- Making part of the recipe in advance (37%)
- Substituting recipe ingredients with other choices (35%)
- Cook using a different appliance (grill, stovetop, etc.) (30%)
- Cook the meal at a different temperature than recommended (26%)
But just because dinner is fast, doesn’t always mean it’s good.
- 50% of people admit that they are often left disappointed by their own cooking.
- And it’s not just them, with 34% saying their spouse is their harshest critic, followed by their kids (33%) and their parents (21%).
