Find aprons at Kmart to keep your clothes clean while you get your hands dirty
Serving up a delicious new dish can leave a sink full of dirty dishes, spatters of grease on the stove and a fine mist of flour all over the countertop. Cooking aprons are a chef's secret weapon against spills and stains. You know what a pain it is to get a red wine or mustard stains out of a shirt; grab an apron to guard yourself. They're made of thick, high-quality fabric so stains won't bleed through. It's also a good idea to have an extra protective layer anytime you're cooking with hot oil. So roll up your sleeves, put on an apron and light up the stove.
Cooking aprons typically cover your torso all the way from the neck down past your waist. Two simple drawstrings keep them in place, which means they're easy to take on and off, and large openings for your arms allows you full range of motion to grab the pans, knives, food containers and salt shakers you need to create that next culinary treat. The design may be simple, but it's all done with the goal of staying out of your way while you cook.
For your convenience, aprons come as one-size-fits-all. Some come with handy pockets, which are great for keeping spoons, cook books and kitchen towels handy for easy access. Try a solid heavy-duty apron by Canon, or a durable striped apron by Essential Home. Their thick design means they'll withstand daily wear and tear for years to come.
One of the best parts of a grilling apron is how it can let your personality shine through. Some aprons come with a sassy, funny, quirky or sincere saying on the front. Because they're so affordable, keep several designs on hand so you can choose one that matches your mood that day. This will also ensure that you're never left without an apron, even when one of them is in the washing machine with the kitchen table linens.
In the end, an apron is about more than just function; it also helps you look the part. Combine your kitchen apron with a chef's hat and a spatula and you'll be the perfect image of what a cook should look like. Make sure you look the part today with one of the aprons available at Kmart.
