Survey from OpenTable Reveals Why Cooking is in the Past

OpenTable, one of the world's leading provider of online restaurant reservations released new survey findings highlighting delivery habits and revealing a growing appetite for convenience.

In tandem, OpenTable also announced a new partnership with Postmates, the #1 on-demand delivery platform in Los Angeles and the Southwest, to bring even more delivery and pick-up options to diners on its iOS and Android apps.

According to a recent survey commissioned by OpenTable, Americans are starting to break up with their kitchens with 41 percent dining out at least once a week and nearly one third considering delivery to be a top alternative.

Six out of 10 (62 percent) respondents choose to order delivery because they like eating in the comfort of their own home, with 59 percent sharing that it's often due to feeling burned out after a long day.

Still, 42 percent say they actually plate their delivery meals with real silverware and plates to closely replicate the restaurant dining experience
