When people step into your kitchen, they will immediately be able to tell what type of cook you are. If your kitchen looks organized and hardly used, they might assume that you are spending your nights in eating takeouts. All the accessories and kitchen appliances found in your kitchen will tell your cooking style and your preferences. Whether you enjoy baking or making the most out of your crock pot, your kitchen has a story that will reveal itself. Find out more below.

Clean But Used Cooktops
If there is a sign on your cooktop that it is regularly used, it is likely that you love making soup, stew, and cook from scratch. Instead of throwing everything together and sticking it in the oven, you have the patience to wait for the right moment for all the ingredients to go in. You might be a master of stew, or great at making nutritious soup, puree, and boiling your own vegetables (or steaming them) to perfection. Check out Induction Select to find out which cooktops are the best for your cooking style and habits. Look for one that is easy to clean and energy efficient.
Old Fashioned Oven
You pretty much favor old fashioned baking, and love making toad in the hole, meatloaves, and – of course – cakes. You love getting busy, impressing your friends, and trying your hand at different cakes, cupcakes, tarts, but your favorite recipes are the ones you heard from your mother or your grandmother. You believe that if they were able to make the best cakes ever in the same style oven, you shouldn’t change.
These are the indication of a busy cook who loves multitasking. You don’t mind if you have to prepare three parts of the meal separately and constantly switch the bowls, pans, and trays to get every small detail right. You might be the cook who never stops and doesn’t like being distracted while working on their latest creation.
You are a healthy cook, and often start the day with a fruit. Instead of going for the chocolate in the fridge when cooking or creating a dessert, you use the fruit from the bowl to add color and flavor. You use a lot of raw ingredients, love salads, and believe that fruit and vegetables are best eaten raw.
Food Processor on the Work Surface
This is a telltale sign of a fitness enthusiast in the house. You regularly use your food processor and make your own protein shakes after you return from jogging in the morning. You make fruit soup, vegetable soups, and salad more than once a week, and are proud of the colors and taste of your creations.
How your kitchen is organized, designed, and what you have on the worktop will tell your visitors what type of cook you are. If you can adjust the functionality of this important room to your needs, you can make better, healthier, and more delicious food for your guests who are just trying to guess what type of cook you really are.
