The US kitchen is not just a place to cook food, it’s also a place where cooks make a living.
But as more people turn to cooking on the stovetop, more of them are getting to cook on the kitchen table.
There are more kitchens in America than there are people.
And a growing number of them seem to be struggling.
In a new survey of over 2,000 households, the National Kitchen Association (NKA) found that while kitchenware is still popular in many kitchens, the number of people who cook on a kitchen table has gone up dramatically over the last few years.
In 2017, over half of Americans surveyed reported cooking on their kitchen table, while the number in 2017 was about the same for people who were making a living as the number who were not.
But that didn’t always match up.
For example, in 2017 only 10 percent of Americans who were cooking on a stovetop said they were making money while 20 percent of those making a “living” did.
This trend of people being more likely to cook from a kitchen stool has been driven by changing social expectations, according to Katherine Fagan, the NKA’s vice president of advocacy.
People expect cooks to be able to cook at home, she said, and they want them to do so.
But they don’t necessarily expect them to have a kitchen stove.
Fagan also noted that the popularity of cooking on your stovetop has not been driven solely by the kitchen industry.
Many people also consider cooking at home a luxury.
In fact, the KitchenAid Mix 4 was a high-end kitchen appliance that only cost about $100,000 in 2016, but that hasn’t kept up with the cost of food.
That’s because of a new law that is expected to take effect in 2019 that will require all appliances to be made in the US, which will mean more American workers have to make more of the items they buy.
As a result, more American households are cooking in their own kitchens, according a study by the US Census Bureau.
This means fewer cooks are getting paid and more are making less than $15 per hour.
