TestMagic estimated score:  4.5/6.0:

This essay has a very good introduction (by itself, the intro would score about 6.0), but the rest of the essay is not as developed as the introduction is. To raise her score, the author would need to develop the rest of the essay more so that it "matches" the introduction.


Nowadays, many types of food are easier to prepare than they were in the past and this, according to my opinion, has remarkably improved our lives. Let me justify my opinion.

In the past, people did not have modern appliances like microwave ovens, food processors, automatic cookers, etc. and food preparing was largely a manual work. Mostly, people used to take a lot of time to make fire from wood and cooking also took a long time. Apart from that the cleaning of the cooking utensils was also a though job. So a good amount of daily time was lost on cooking rather than on other productive aspects. I do not mean to say that food is not important, but if we could spend less time in cooking and more time in doing other works then we could make more progress in our lives. Today, due to the ease of food preparation we are able to devote more time to productive work and hence our lives have improved.

The new methods are not only easy they are more healthy as well. For instance, the food cooked in microwave ovens are much more healthy than the food cooked in conventional ovens or by other means, because microwaves use minimal amount of fats.

Apart from this, a lot of readymade food is also available in the market, which is ideal for people who are too busy to prepare their meals. Not only that, but meals can be easily ordered from restaurants for the people who are busy. This not only saves them time but also provides employment to many people who prepare food for them in the restaurants. So the people who are skilled in prparing food can also earn their living by doing what they want or enjoy to do.

So with easy access to food as well as convenient modes of food preparation, we have been able to improve our lifestyles and keep up with the development of the human race.
