10 Cooking Tips for People With Arthritis
A kitchen stool is as important to a cook with arthritis as any other cooking tool in their kitchen. Cooking can be a long process, depending of course on how complicated the meal is which you are preparing. When counter work starts to increase the level of your arthritis pain, or when standing over the stove is wearing you out, be prepared to pull up a stool.

It's important to have a stool nearby. Don't think about it ruining your kitchen decor. Think of the kitchen stool as part of managing life with arthritis.
