This list is some weak-sauce chickenshit entitled suburbanite can’t-get-my-hands-dirty bullshit. You want to know how make kitchen chores not difficult? Keep your knives sharp. Don’t let things get shitty for weeks or months before cleaning them. Wipe up spills right away. Don’t let things spoil in the fridge. In other words, get your shit together.
Pro or home, same idea. Clean as you go. Put some effort into it.
Guiding question: would I eat anything off this surface?
Keep it simple.
