Half of Millennials said they wouldn't be able to competently roast a chicken, which means younger people are about 30% less likely to posses the skill than Baby Boomers, according to the study. What's more, only 47% of Millennials reported being able to properly braise meat, 56% could identify a garlic press, and -- get this -- only 63.6% could identify a butter knife. On the contrary, Boomers identified these household items with aplomb; the only item that gave them pause was the Salad Spinner, which 60.3% of Boomers identified correctly, compared with 60.1% of Millennials. But, hey, we'll give Boomers a pass there, given that you can also dry salad greens with a paper towel.
If anything is clear from this study, which only seems to promote fascination with Millennial incompetence, it's that young people are better at helping devalue Snapchat than making pasta. That, in a way, is something to be proud of.
