Implications - As frugal, post-recession consumers make their way back to their kitchens, they're bound to feel some guilt for the amount of time home-cooking requires them to sacrifice from their already-busy lives. Dual-function kitchen appliances alleviate this issue by implementing Multitasking Cuisine.
