Technology is rapidly expanding at an alarming rate with new developments on a weekly, monthly, and yearly basis that can greatly impact our lives. For Americans today, technology has greatly impacted methods of cooking and how we cook for our families overall, helping us to save time while also enjoying foods in most cases, much quicker than previous generations and their cooking methods.
A major technological development for American households was the microwave along with packaged and freeze-dried food which is readily available to cook and eat without being perishable for some time. With the development of the microwave, people began to save time when cooking dinner, leaving room for additional activities or work, depending on the household.
The advancement of electric stoves and even the creation of all new kitchen appliances has also contributed to the culture of cooking in America today. With toasters, toaster ovens, microwave ovens, blenders, and even food graters and choppers (along with food processors), cooking and preparing any type of meal has become a possibility for even the most amateur of home cooks, regardless of their level of experience. Using tools and technological electronics is a way to be more efficient while also cooking the food you have in mind with ease.
