The idea of putting everything in the oven and saving time as well as washing up seemed to make a big difference for home cooks.

She wasn’t the only one who said so. One woman also stated that she played ‘rock paper’. To determine which member of her household will fry the vegetables and meat on Friday night, she used scissors. 

A third mother wrote, “It never occurred too me, and I am sitting here now thinking about other meals that I can throw in the oven,”
