Have you ever bent down while cooking and had your phone fall out of your apron pocket? That was one of the things that used to bother me the most when I was in the kitchen making soup. I learned how physical cooking can be and how essential a comfortable, protective apron is. There were many times that I would bend over only to have my phone drop out of the front pocket of my apron. One of the key features of our apron is a special phone pocket with a snap so your phone stays secure in your pocket and doesn't end up in your food or on the floor.
Other things we took into consideration were the ease getting the apron on and off. It was always annoying to have to readjust the neck strap each time I put my apron on or took it off. In addition to looking rather cool with some metal grommets, we hope you find the snaps easier to manage than a buckle.
And finally, many of the aprons we used did not have a place that would actually keep our long handled spoons in place. We added 2, long, narrow pockets ideal for barbecue tools or other long-handled items in addition to a small, narrow pocket for a pen or food thermometer.
