Study: Millennials are cooking more using smartphones
A new study by Google found that millennials are using their smartphones more than cookbooks to cook.
Of people between the ages of 25 to 34, 59 percent of them bring their smartphones or tablets into the kitchen, while people over 35 years old are more likely to print out the recipe, according to the study.
The study also found that millennials are also using smart devices to find out what to cook, to keep track of recipes and to purchase ingredients, in addition to how to make the dish. In terms of cooking preparation, 31 percent of millennials said that the least enjoyable part is choosing what to cook.
The most popular food search terms included "dinner ideas," "healthy recipes," and "slow cooker recipes." YouTube searches for "best recipes" also increased by 48 percent.
The study also found that a quarter of surveyed millennials think that the most important part of cooking is adding a personal touch to the recipe and that 92 percent were still content with the dish even if mistakes were made.
