I wear one more often than not - I do a lot of sauteeing when I cook, and it took me a while, but I finally realized that the stains on my after-work clothes were oil spatters. I usually wear one that DH bought me one that has what looks like drawings of various veggies and their names printed on it. I think I have 5 or 6 altogether - one I got from my grandmother's kitchen after she died, one from the Florida Keys with fish and coral painted on it, one solid green one from when I worked in the dining commons in college (you should have seen the mess I made of fried eggs!), one that one of our exchange students gave me with the colors of the German flag - I think that's it.

I pray he's kidding. Just the thought sent shivers.

I just got a denim one when I signed up for Pampered Chef but I haven't worn it. It doesn't make sense to me because it will get extremely dirty if you work with any kind of flour.

And GG, I know what you mean about the mystery stains ending up oil, or in my case there was also red sauces which is why I asked for an apron for my birthday. I got one so I try and wear it when I remember. I'm tired of having clothes I can only wear in the house because of the stains.

Well sometimes I wear PJs. I dunno never thought of my apparel while cooking. So it is possible. I have before but don't really walk around nude like I use to. Keep in mind I haven't cooked much.

I grew up in the kitchen with my mom and aunts, and always wore one, so I still do. I developed the habit of wiping my wet hands on the skirt of the apron, so if I'm not wearing one, I often end up with wet clothes. I am also a big flour-spreader, and the apron at least keeps it off of me.

In a professional kitchen, I wear an apron over my whites.

I buy them in bulk at the restaurant supply. They are all plain white waiters' aprons, except for the two I got in classes at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris.

I own two aprons - one printed with a veggie pattern; the other just plain pristine white. I only wear them when I'm cooking for company though.

Yes I wear an apron if I'm cooking on the hob, but not if in the oven, unless it's something that might spit at me. I have a blue & white stripped apron.
