Nowadays, food has become easier to prepare. Has this change improved the way ...

Kindly share your review comments :

The advent of technology has changed the lifestyle of human beings in many ways. Certainly, we have seen drastic changes in how people used to cook food in the past. In my opinion, this progress has more pros than cons.

To begin with, let us consider the technology used to process the food in this modern era. We get ready made wheat flour in the market. One has to put a little effort to add appropriate amount of water and leave it to dough maker to complete the first stage. Chappati makers do the rest of the job. Human intervention is minimal and mere supervisory. It is hygienic, quicker and efficient as well when it comes to prepare large quantities. Other appliances like food processors, toasters, ovens have made the work in kitchen not only simple but fun too.

All such appliances have helped people to invest minimal time to prepare good meal at home. Now, one doesn’t have to rely on readymade food such as fast food or snacks when it comes to shortage of time. Such foods are not only detrimental to health but costly too.

Home makers can now enjoy the leisure time while keeping the family happy and healthy. It seems to be a win-win situation for all.

In contrast, there are a few appliances which may have a negative effect while promising the easiness at your disposal. For example, fridge can preserve the food for several days. People store the cut vegetables and other food items for weeks in fridges and intermittently consume as per the needs. However, recent studies have indicated that food may last longer in these units but in no time, the nutrients of the food dies. The nourishment value of the fresh food reduces to zero in less than 24 hours when kept frozen.

To summarize, while I agree that the technology has benefited us providing numerous ways to save time and effort, one should be vigilant enough to avoid appliances which impose a compromise on food quality.
