Leave it to the Professionals: Deliveroo survey reveals 45% of Hong Kongers wish their kitchen was a wardrobe

April 3, 2017 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

According to a recent Deliveroo home cooking behaviour survey, an overwhelming number of Hong Kongers are no longer using their kitchen to its fullest potential, with only 57% of respondents saying they feel they have a functioning kitchen and a vast majority of respondents agreeing that their kitchen is too small. According to the survey statistics, Hong Kongers buy kitchen gadgets to use in their limited space, but in reality, they don’t regularly use either the kitchen or the cooking tools, opting instead to “Leave it to the Professionals,” relying on Hong Kong’s chefs and restaurants for their favourite dishes.

The survey, conducted in February 2017 with over 1,000 local residents, asked people to respond on how they utilize their kitchen space and what tools they use on the regular. According to the results, 99% of Hong Kongers considered food to be a central component of key life events and social occasions, and yet just over 10% of people cook every day. The main reason is due to the lack of space and time; 71% of participants think their kitchen is too small, and almost 60% of respondents only use their tools in kitchen to prepare a meal three days a week or less.

With asked what they would do with their kitchen space if they never had to cook, 45% of respondents say that they would use it to create a walk-in wardrobe; a luxury in our city’s notoriously small apartments!

It seems most survey takers are not appropriately utilising the tools they store in their small kitchens. Despite owning an average of 30 different kitchen gadgets, 69% admit to regularly using less than half or less of the appliances they own. Most surprisingly, “rice cooker” is among the least used gadgets, yet it’s a food staple in Hong Kong. Hong Kongers can’t live without Siu Mei with rice, but with today’s technology it’s easier to save time and avoid the hassle of dirtying the kitchen and dishes and still enjoy this beloved specialty by ordering it online and having Deliveroo bring it in 32 minutes or less.

Hong Kong is a fast-paced city, where people are constantly on the go and things can get hectic. With survey results confirming the busy lives Hong Kongers lead, why not “Leave it to the Professionals” and allow one of Deliveroo’s expert chef partners do the cooking!
