Welcome to the
I don’t have time to watch TV but one thing I make a point of seeing (generally on the netbook in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep!) is Masterchef. Consequently I’m still at the semi-final stages so haven’t yet seen the episode that may have sparked the viewers’ complaints about “sweat dripping into sauces” and “hair being stirred into the lamb tagine”.
Manufacturers go to such great lengths to ensure that we’re able to have (if we can afford it!) the very best technology in our kitchens… appliances that are beautiful to look at, efficient and functional, which are now designed to use less energy and thus save us money and which are also either treated with an antibacterial coating or made in a way to facilitate easy cleaning.
The fact that those who make it to the final stages of Masterchef are allegedly dripping sweat and dropping hair all over them seems almost sacrilegious, doesn’t it? They’re clearly so wrapped up in impressing the judges that they probably don’t stop to think about how lucky they are to be using some of the best equipment money can buy.
