Before you start cooking any kind of food, it's important to make sure you have everything you'll need. Obviously, you're gonna want to make sure you have all of the ingredients, but equally as important is making sure you have the correct tools to prepare your dish. A colander for straining. A knife for chopping. A man for telling you what to do.
What's that? You don't need a man telling you how to cook? Well then explain these cookbook covers:

Do those men actually know how to cook? Do any men actually know how to cook? I'm gonna need some explanations.

@mikerugnetta At what point will we be using the pot in the preparation of what looks like cucumber sandwiches? https://t.co/w6iV8FUtTy— rad with added podcast (@rad with added podcast)1516661016.0
Apparently, this phenomenon is not limited to photos on Instant Pot cookbooks:
@mikerugnetta I've been thinking about this all day - so I looked up 'couple preparing food' on a stock photos site… https://t.co/WSv7Oq2yEA— Naomi (@Naomi)1516712964.0
