Only 5% Of Millennials Say They’re Good At This Basic Chore

Yes, I consider this a chore. And yes, I’m a Millennial.

Yes, I consider cooking a chore. And yes, I’m a Millennial. Thrillist reports a new study suggests only 5% of Millennials and Generation Xers can cook well. And I believe it! I’m good at popping food in the oven or skillet, but I don’t care for cooking beyond that. Postmates and Trader Joes ready made meals are my friends.

The survey also found half of Millennials aren’t able to competently roast a chicken, which means younger people are about 30% less likely to posses the skill than Baby Boomers. What’s crazier is only 47% of Millennials said they could properly braise meat, 56% could identify a garlic press, and — get this — only 63.6% could identify a butter knife. What? That I can’t relate to.
