Women spend 2.5x more time cooking then men

I am an oddball when I examine aggregate data. This data definitely does not hold true for my parents relationship, and my own. Yet, I doubt I’m much of an outlier.

┬áThere’s so much to talk about here, but one figure jumped out. How much time does the average American spend each day on “food preparation and cleanup?” A little over half an hour (0.56 hours).

Women spent more time doing it than men (0.79 hours vs. 0.31 hours).
