You know you’re getting older when you start having appliance envy.
As a kid, all you want are toys. Household management? A foreign concept. The multiple bits and pieces to do well at adulting? You completely take it for granted. Childhood’s a simpler time with simpler desires, and it only takes plastic, lights and music to keep you going.
But things get a bit more complicated as you grow up. Whether you invest in a home or start your own family, toys eventually don’t mean what they did as you fill your life with genuinely invaluable things, and you’ll soon do just about anything to protect them.
Which itself takes a ton of time and energy. You cook, you clean and take care of everything that matters to you, but why should being responsible mean not having the time to enjoy it?
The very question that LG’s looking to solve with its line of stellar appliances.
People often underestimate just how much of a difference a robust set of culinary skills can make in your life! As one who routinely goes out for lunch every day, eating the same ol’ same ol’ gets tiring pretty quickly—you shouldn’t let your neighbourhood dictate what food winds up on your plate, and that’s precisely what happens if you refuse to cook for yourself!
And that’s my problem—after realising how limited I was as a cook when working for my Dad and how inefficient I am when compared to Sarah, my motivation for cooking was… minimal.
But I’m not a teenager cooking chicken for the masses anymore. And I’m certainly not the same man as Casey the bachelor a decade ago. As I grew older, my palate grew along with me, and the simple fare that once did the trick just didn’t cut it anymore. A quick slice at Pizzaiolo made way for authentic wood-fired Neapolitan-style pies. Chipotle burritos replaced by the authentic Mexican fare at a local joint. My renewed interest in ingredients meant my takeout tastes couldn’t keep up… it was time I returned to the kitchen!
But you come to learn that great cooking requires some great tools, which makes it great that Hamilton Beach is backing me up with the appliances that’ll help me take my skills to the next level!
