New research has today revealed that on average Brits have under three hours of free time each evening, with almost half of the nation (43%) citing cooking
their evening meal as the task that takes up the majority of their free time,
with many wishing food preparation was easier, quicker and less pressured.

Chores are the next biggest time sapper with cleaning (41%), washing up (40%), laundry (32%) and grocery shopping (27%) completing the list according to the study from Saucy Fish Co.

On average, Brits cook and prepare an evening meal at least four times a week and with 7% of the nation having just a measly 30 minutes to one hour of free time, cooking often needs to be convenient - particularly as over a quarter (28%) admit that the effort it takes to cook often deters them from preparing a meal and instead turning to takeaways and snacks.

As cooking was voted the most time consuming '€˜life admin'€™, over a quarter (28%) of those surveyed stated that they wish cooking good meals was simpler in order to save on sparse free moments in a hectic life.

Although people do manage to set the time aside to cook, they admitted that
other things creep into their minds, meaning we aren'€™t focused on the task at hand. People were more concerned about what they have to do tomorrow (18%) their partners (18%) and kids (15%).
