Do You Have A Television In Your Kitchen?

I have a small, wall mounted television in my kitchen and itís not even digital. I have to play it through my Sky box from another room. I can also watch recordings on it.

I sometimes, have it on when lím preparing food but never whilst lím eating. I am totally against eating a meal when the television is on.

Reading this back, I sound a bit sad having a television in the kitchen!
So, are you as sad as me and have a television in your kitchen?

No art, our kitchen is tiny, nowhere to put one, plus itís pretty pointless as we can watch our tv from the kitchen anyway

No but I'm sure it's nice to have when you are cooking.

I haven't got a TV anywhere in the house. Never watch TV ... but oddly, I've got a TV licence.

We have a kitchen-diner with TV and we quite often watch it while eating.

But we never eat in the sitting room, haven't had a lap meal or even a snack whilst lounging in the 30+ years we've been married.

I have just looked closer at it and itís a Samsung LCD TV monitor.

Preparing food and cleaning can be tedious, so having it on passes the time.

dOOd, l wouldnít be able to savour my food if l was watching the television. It would just be like refuelling and not concentrating on the flavour, or the niceness of your meal.

Re: Do You Have A Television In Your Kitchen?

Yes we've got one Arty....
Most evenings I watch it while preparing meals.
'Pointless' keeps me company while I prepare and cook a meal, 'The Chase' is my prefered choice while eating said meal, and something on 'Quest' (preferably something Australian) while washing up the pots.....

Because the sound quality of a 19" TV is rubbish, I patch it through the house music system which has large speakers in the kitchen ceiling and that overcomes the sound of extractor fans and boiling kettles.

I can also attach this laptop through the system and listen to selected music on youtube in excellent quality. My neighbour reckons it's pretty good anyway. Being a digital TV I can also receive hundreds of radio stations also.....

Prior to having the kitchen refurbished I hard wired everything in, so not a cable in sight....
