At the start of 2017, Great British Chefs completed a deep dive into the world of foodies. A survey was completed by 5,361 UK-based people who agreed with the statement, ‘Would you describe yourself as a foodie?’ A full White Paper was published in late February (which you can read more about here) but with the size of our sample we were able to dig into specific areas – which is exactly what we’ve done.
While the original White Paper looked at every aspect of a foodie’s cooking and eating habits, this one focuses on the tools and appliances they own. From slow cookers and stand mixers to ravioli cutters and wasabi graters, we uncovered some incredibly interesting statistics when it comes to kitchen kit.
The average foodie owns fourteen electrical appliances and twelve cook’s tools, and it’s clear they think it’s worth investing in specific appliances to get quality results. They own stand mixers for perfect cakes, meat thermometers for precision cooking and smokers for that home-smoked taste. They also have a wide range of tools that include everything from sugar thermometers and potato ricers to pizza stones and spiralisers.
