Five Best Kitchen Aprons
Cooking can be messy at times. Well, if you don't cook messy, some people don't consider you to be a real cook - not sure I agree with that, but still. There will be times when sauce spills onto you or splashes on your clothes. Who knows what accident one might run into while cooking, especially if you spend a lot of time in the kitchen.
The best clothing to prevent your clothes from spills and splashes are aprons. Purpose designed to do so. But - there are hundreds to choose from. After much testing (especially on my wife as she is far messier than me - except when I made pasta) here are the five best aprons to protect your clothes from cooking accidents.
Chef Works CSBA-BCS Chalk Stripe Bib Apron with Pockets, 34-1/4-Inch Length by 27-Inch Width, Black/White
For men, this black apron with chalk white stripes is perfect. It is a bib apron with pockets, and is 34 1/3 inch in length, covering all the important bits. This is made up 65% polyester and 35 % cotton so is easy to wash and comfortable. It has two patch center divided pockets, so you can hold all sorts of implements ready for action, and you can tie it either in front or back.
This apron has was a gift from my wife. She was tired of removing sauce stain from my shirts when I'm making pasta. This is a nice apron and the tie is long enough for me to tie in the front. Unlike other aprons that have shorter ties. I think I would look feminine and awkward with a ribbon at the back. The colors are masculine also - a very functional and comfortable apron.
Chef Works F10 3-Pocket Bib Apron, 24-Inch Length by 28-Inch Width, Black
This is a plain black apron, made up of 65% polyester and 35% cotton material. Machine washable and tumble low drying. It has an adjustable neck closure and 3 pockets - also available in white, red, black, royal blue and hunter green.
One thing I like about this apron is that it is has an adjustable necktie. I really don't like the feeling of putting tight aprons on the neck area - it makes me feel suffocated. Plus, this apron has a long tie that you can tie it in the front the same as the previous model. I don't know why, but I really find it funny for a guy to have a ribbon tie at the back. However, this is a sexy apron according to my wife. I think she finds the idea of not having to wash the stains out of my shirt sexy actually. Since I'm a tall man, it doesn't reach my mid thigh but this will fit most people.
Cupcake Bib Aprons for Mother or Daughter
This cupcake-cute dainty apron is really nice for mothers and daughters. It is a "retro-chic," inspired hostess apron with cupcake details. This is a stylish kitchen accessory . It is made of 100% cotton fibre that is easily machine washable.
This really has a great design. It has an A line cut that fits snugly into your hips. It really accentuates curves. Unlike any plain looking aprons, this really makes cooking and doing the dishes more fun. Take a trip back in time next time you entertain. You remember - the good old days where a woman's place was the kitchen. :D

This makers of this apron are not messing around with fancy cupcakes - it is a good modern design, made of 100 % cotton with Teflon finish for protection. There are 2 waist level patch pockets with one pen pocket. It has an adjustable neck strap and one inch thick waist ties.
I really love this apron. It has a Teflon finish making it easier to clean; it has ample pockets and a pen pocket. The company has really thought about designing an apron that has a lot of features for very little cost. The only drawback is that it's shorter than I expected. Nevertheless, it's a great apron for daily needs.
