The apron has been a staple accessory for home cooks for nearly as long as people have been cooking in kitchens. Designed to provide an easy-to-wear barrier against spills, splashes, sputtering sauces and other potential kitchen hazards that could stain your clothing, aprons are an essential for home cooks who prefer to avoid changing clothes just to prepare a meal. An apron is also a must-have item for home cooks who like to entertain. With an apron, you can transition seamlessly from party host to cook and back to host, even when wearing your best outfits. Grab a great deal on a new apron from April Cornell, Valcooks or Waverly, and you won’t have to shy away from that bubbling sauce pot any longer!
