Survey Finds Which Room Is The “Heart” of the Home…

According to new research, the average adult spends over 1,000 hours a year in the kitchen…

One in nine people consider the kitchen to be “the heart of the home” because it meets their needs, provides comfort, and provides a space to spend time with family and friends.

After all, 73% of those surveyed enjoy cooking at least sometimes, with half saying that cooking a meal is just as — if not more — fun than eating it (53%).

A survey of 2,000 adults looked at the time spent in different parts of the home and found that nearly half of respondents host guests at least once a year (49%).  

When people have others over, respondents said they spend plenty of time together in the living room or dining room.

Respondents use their microwave, dishwasher and stove or oven seven or more times a week, but often skip cleaning them at the end of the week.

In the kitchen, those surveyed are most likely to clean the stove or oven and warming drawer two or fewer times a month.

Respondents prefer to use the microwave or a countertop appliance like a toaster oven air fryer, or the oven to heat food.

Furthermore, one in seven cherish the times they spend with loved ones in the kitchen.
