Convenient Cuisine

Hi-tech kitchen devices help busy consumers create instant meals

Implications - A 2009 report by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed that about 26 percent of Americans work more than 40 hours per week.

Since takeout isn’t usually the healthiest option, these extremely convenient cooking devices, from instant meal heaters to oven-fridge hybrids, provide consumers with stress-free—and efficient—meal preparation.
