8/10 A recent survey of more than 4,000 consumers found that nearly half (46 per cent) of respondents said they were not bothered by the smell of food on the grill at their home.
But this was down significantly from last year (54 per cent).
Only 17 per cent of respondents reported feeling any annoyance or annoyance while cooking.
But when it comes to cleaning, almost half (48 per cent), also felt no need to wash their hands.
In fact, nearly a quarter (23 per cent, or 3.9 million) of Americans said they did not wash their hand before eating.
But the number of people who said they cleaned their hands was only slightly higher than the total number of food-related illnesses that Americans suffer (19,967,000).
The survey found that people who had children tended to be less likely to wash hands, with 62 per cent saying they did so at least once a week.
People with high incomes were less likely than those without to wash (58 per cent compared with 68 per cent respectively).
Overall, however, those who are less well off are more likely to think of washing their hands as an essential part of cooking.
9/10 People with allergies tend to wash dishes at home less often.
Around two-thirds of Americans (64 per cent ) said they wash their dishes at least a few times a week, according to a recent survey from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.
However, the survey found almost half of people with a food allergy reported washing their dishes with soap and water at home.
Only around a quarter of Americans reported washing dishes with dish soap and only one in five (21 per cent%) did so with vinegar.
And the survey also found that around one in four people surveyed said they didn’t wash their plates, bowls and utensils at home, which is lower than the national average of around one-third.
10/10 The average American eats five meals a day, on average.
That’s nearly three meals for every day of the year.
And while Americans spend more than six hours a day doing household chores, the average American spends only five hours a week actually cooking, according the Food Marketing Institute.
That means they eat fewer meals than people in the European Union, where they eat an average of 14 meals a week and spend around three hours a night cooking.

Nearly two-fifths of Americans polled by the Pew Research Centre say they either get sick every day, once a month or once every three months, the Associated Press reported.
That is up from 27 per cent who said in 2015.
One in five people surveyed by the poll also said they get tired easily, with 31 per cent reporting they get more tired while driving than while at home or at work.
The survey was conducted by telephone from August 22 to 27, 2017 among 1,011 adults across the US.
The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
6/10 Most Americans believe people with pre-existing conditions should be covered by health insurance, but some still don’t Believe in a government health insurance program would work.
Nearly six in 10 Americans (58%) believe health insurance should be available for everyone regardless of pre-existence, according a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll.
That figure was similar to 58 per cent in December 2017.
However only a minority (36 per cent or 19 million people) said a government program covering pre-existed conditions would work, the poll found.
A separate survey from Reuters found that 42 per cent thought a government-run program would cover everyone, while 28 per cent believed it would cover only people with preexisting conditions.

In a poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Urban Institute, released on Sunday, more than half (53 per cent!) of Americans — and a similar percentage of Republicans — said the federal government should “fix” the healthcare system.
A majority of Democrats (58%), independents (56 per cent and 51 per cent alike), and Republicans (51 per cent to 47 per cent each) said healthcare needs to be fixed, according.
The poll was conducted between January 11 and
