17 Jan RESEARCH: We have £11 Billion worth of UNUSED kitchen equipment gathering dust
From sushi mats to bamboo steamers, sous vides (water baths) and even professional chef knives – Brits have a staggering £11 BILLION worth of kitchen equipment that they NEVER actually use, according to a new study.
New research has revealed the extent to which modern Brits have “all the gear” when it comes to their kitchens – with the average UK household boasting a staggering £415 worth of unused cooking gadgets and utensils.
According to the study by HelloFresh to mark the launch of their new Rapid Box, 58 percent of Brits admit they have absolutely no idea what to do with most of the equipment in their kitchens.
Among the list of most redundant kitchen items include bamboo steamers (53 percent of people who have one have NEVER used it), tagines (53 percent), sushi mats (52 percent), spiralisers (52 percent) and pasta makers (49 percent).
Waffle makers (45 percent), tapas dishes (37 percent) and pestle and mortars (45 percent) also featured in the most redundant items within the nation’s homes.
