  • My husband is the same way. I try to clean up as I go but it depends on what you are cooking and how fast you need to cook. I've gotten used to cleaning up the kitchen after a lot of cooking. It's just a part of cooking. But ideally you should clean as you go. You really should if you can. In some homes it's the cook doesn't clean. But that is sooo not true.

  • When I had a family living with me I left a mess to clean up at one time. My mom told me to do what you do but I didn't until now. Living alone I do clean up as I go. It gives me something to do as the food is cooking.

  • I rinse as I go or soak depending on what it is when possible. I have 2 daughters and one is constantly needing/wanting something and the other is bound and determined to help us cook so it's kinda hectic as we cook if it's a regular meal.

  • I cook first then I clean the whole kitchen.I have so many things to prep that I do not have the time to wash the dishes.I have four burners going at the same time while chopping and shredding not.

  • I try to clean as I go..sometimes its just not possible when dealing with kids at the same time. My DH likes for ME to clean as I cook..but when he cooks (which is usually spaghetti or hot dogs) he leaves everything out. Go figure!
