New Research Reveals That The Kitchen Is More Than Just a Place To Cook

New research reveals that the kitchen is more than just a place to cook; it's the heart of the American home, where families bond and memories are made. According to a survey of 2,000 U.S. adults, individuals spend over 1,000 hours annually in their kitchens, showcasing a deep connection to this space.

When guests visit, respondents often gravitate towards the living room or dining area. However, one in seven cherish moments spent with loved ones right in the kitchen itself. Conducted by OnePoll for Whirlpool, the survey uncovered a profound love for the kitchen, with one in nine considering it the heart of their home due to its ability to fulfill needs, offer comfort, and facilitate quality time with family and friends.

Bree Lemmen, Whirlpool's kitchen brand manager, emphasized the kitchen's role in creating cherished family memories and fostering intergenerational connections. She highlighted the company's commitment to nurturing a sense of care in the kitchen.

Despite the kitchen's importance, many respondents admitted to neglecting its cleanliness, often prioritizing other areas. While essential appliances like the microwave, dishwasher, and stove are used frequently, cleaning them regularly tends to be overlooked.

Lemmen stressed the significance of maintaining appliances, underscoring their role in preserving the kitchen's function as a space for making memories. As she aptly put it, "Regular upkeep of appliances helps to maintain cooking and cleaning performance, and in turn, create more space for making memories in your kitchen with family and loved ones." Ultimately, the kitchen emerges as not just a culinary hub but the beating heart of the American home.
