It's no secret that most Americans don't gather 'round the table for a home-cooked meal the way we used to, and now a new survey proves it.

The ready-to-eat pasta company Artisola commissioned its State of Home Cooking Survey, which found that only 27% of Americans actually get behind a stove to cook every day.  68% manage to do so four times a week.

The poll of 2,000 people also ranked which states had the most, and fewest, home cookers.  Iowa had the highest number of people who say they cook at home every day, at 44%, followed closely by Connecticut with 42%, and Wisconsin at 41%.

Just 6% of those polled say they never cook at all, but of those who do, they're committed -- half of them spend an hour with meal prep.
