That is how we got to where we are, with kitchens as big as apartments, where kitchen islands have become archipelagos and continents, all mostly for show since people don't cook the way they used to.

Because when you look at all those kitchens of the future that were imagined in the past, people are looking for ways to cook faster or easier from scratch. When what has happened in the last fifty years is that we have outsourced our cooking; first to frozen and prepared foods, then to fresh prepared foods that you buy in the supermarket, and now trending to online ordering.

The kitchen has evolved from a place where you cook to a place where most people just do the warming.
