In the twenty-first century a lot improvements were made on the technologies for cooking in order food to be easily prepared. Some people may disagree with me, but I believe that this change has influenced people’s lives in a positive aspect. The two main ways this alteration improved people’s lives are providing fastness and convenience in them. First of all, time is the most outstanding possession that everyone wants to have in excess and when there is a way to save some they make it. Moreover, in their everyday lives people are often too busy with momentous activities. That is why they prefer to pay more attention to the important work they have to do and get food easier to prepare rather than sitting in the kitchen all day and cook. For example, most people would prefer buying semi-prepared products from the supermarket, which are easier to prepare and putting them in the microwave or in the stove for couple of minutes and wait to get ready while writing homework or studying for a test. The second important trait is that it is convenient. Everyone searches the most practical and easy way of doing the activities they set out. Cooking is a rather complicated study that not everyone can learn to do well. Moreover, it is absolutely impractical to start reading culinary books if you are new at cooking and wait for the stove to warm, for instance, when you can just use semi-prepared products and the modern technology in your kitchen as the microwave or the toaster which makes cooking much more convenient. Furthermore, if you are a child and you cannot use the hot-plate you can take packed dry soup and just pour with hot water. In conclusion, people benefit from food easier to prepare because of the fast way it can be cooked. This leads to saving more time for important work. Moreover, it improves people’s lives with its convenient way of preparation.
