CALAMITOUS COOKS

Roast dinner, lasagne and a traditional

fry up are amongst the dishes Brits

can't cook properly, according to a new

study. Researchers have revealed the

top 20 dishes Brits regularly fail to serve

perfectly on every occasion - because

they are burnt, undercooked or hard to

deliver to the table at the same time. Eggs

prove particularly baffling, as omelette,

scrambled eggs and poached eggs are

all often served up too runny, stuck to the

pan, undercooked or over-boiled. Other

dishes Brits regularly cremate or serve

raw are pizza, Yorkshire puddings and

Victoria sponge.

The poll of 2,000 adults shows the

average person will endure a cooking

disaster at least three times a month

(36 meals ruined across the course of

one year). Speaking on behalf of Sharp

Home Appliances which conducted the

research,

The company's UK Sales and

Marketing Director, Andy Warren says,

"Our researchers discovered many adults

are suffering mishaps in the kitchen on

a regular basis, often because they're

rushing things and don't have the

time to spend poring over recipes or

getting the correct settings on the oven.

Distractions such as the children, the

television, work and even the pet dog can

make concentrating on the one matter

in hand difficult. And this is why we can

understand why many adults stick to the

same meals day in and day out for ease

and speed."

Time pressure being such a factor in

home life, it's often the reason meals get

mangled before they get to the table, so

folk tend to stick to dishes they can rely on.

Six meals on rotation

The study shows six in 10 British adults

rarely deviate from their repertoire of

familiar dishes because they usually go

wrong if they try to cook anything else.

This means the average family will eat

approximately six meals on rotation, to

lower the number of cooking disasters in

the home.

Three in 10 cooks will often serve

up mushy pasta or rice, while one in

six will often burn the edges of a dish

but discover it is still raw in the middle.

Adding too much salt, sugar or spice are

other common mistakes, as are serving

something raw or soggy by accident

leaving 15% of respondents to burst

into tears as a result of the dinner being

inedible, and 26% resorting to getting a

takeaway.

Warren says, "We understand that

most people don't have time to learn all

of the settings on their kitchen appliances,

and need to be able to knock up healthy

and nutritious meals in minutes. Our aim

at Sharp is to make cooking easy, fun and

enjoyable for everyone. This is why all of

our major domestic appliances are easy

to use and maintain."
