Either I'm neater than most of you, or I just don't get "into" my cooking as much. I don't seem to have any significant issues with food stains from cooking.

I have several aprons; I put one on when I remember I do a lot of stovetop cooking and the fats spatter my tops.

My wife manages to keep herself clean while cooking but she somehow turns the kitchen into huge pile of mess, including the kitchen floor.

Its usually so hot here, that if I wore an apron when I bbq, I'd have to not wear anything else, clothes wise!

We are more partial to bibs, we need protection when we eat.

Hi Karen, and welcome!

There are a few threads here about aprons - I did a search and here is one.
Apron Recommendations??

Seems that there was another more recent one, but I'm multi-tasking right now and can't find it.

Reminds me that I need to get an apron or two.

I wear an apron for a few reasons. We wore them during culinary school and I always wore them when catering so as not to get anything that might be on my clothes into the food. I wear them when doing cakes as it can be a very messy job!

But the most personal I wear an apron now is an homage to my Mom. She is the person who not only taught me to bake first but who gave me my passion for it. She was an amazing self-taught baker. She always wore an apron and when I was eight I came into the kitchen to help with Christmas baking to find my own apron hanging beside her's. It was identical except smaller - she made them both! I grew out of that one, but not the idea that you bake, you wear your apron!

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffeine-free and loving it!
