Young people are lack of the basic knowledge of cooking these days. For them, cooking spends too much of their time.

I love this question/topic... and the IDEA of a "product" that would do this is very interesting and thought-provoking.

There is just SO much that is already available to pique interest in cooking that I think this needs to be more of a "movement" than something that can be purchased or something. You point out that people now have less time than they once did... In addition, the AVAILABILITY of food through take-out franchises has never been higher.

Fewer adults seem to have the time to MODEL home cooking skills/passion... I really hate to think about the state of home cooking say 20-30 years further down the road. It may turn out to be more of a "hobby" than it is now.

Knowing my luck, in 20 - 30 years, people will be walking up to a console, punching a button, and saying, "Tea, Earl Grey, hot."
