There are several new appliances in The Sims 2: FreeTime and most of them are built just for cuisine. There are also several new interactions available on them.

Cooking[edit]

Apart from the usual Have Meal, Serve Meal and Clean interactions, all new appliances in the cooking category have the Make Food for Contest interaction. As well, grills can only make grilled food for the contest and stoves only make stove-only food.

Refrigerators[edit]

This is a recap of all fridge interactions from the base game and its expansion packs.

  • Have a Snack: Choose between cookies, chips, juice and the all-new protein shake for fitness sims.
  • Have Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner: Choose meal based on cooking skill.
  • Serve Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner: Choose meal based on cooking skill. Creates six servings. Sims can also choose Grandmas Comfort Soup as a meal. This meal gives hunger, comfort and cures any illness.
  • Serve Dessert: Choose meal based on cooking skill.
  • Grill: Available at lunch and dinner. Choose meal based on cooking skill.
  • Check Food Supplies: Looks at all food points available allowing you to know when its time to buy groceries.
  • Juggle Bottles: Sim gets fun. Doesn't detract from food points.
  • Make/Make Many: Open for Business only. Sim chooses quantity than group or single serving then chooses any meal they want to make. This isn't restricted by the time of day.
  • Get Leftovers: Seasons introduced. Sim must first have leftovers in the fridge before choosing. Put food in the fridge by clicking and selecting Put Away Leftovers.
  • Make Food for Contest: Makes food. When prepared, food is placed in your sims inventory. It doesn't actually have to be entered into a contest. It just makes it easier.
  • Serve Platter: Instantly make chips, cheese or appetiser platter. What's available depends on cuisine enthusiasm. Platters full up hunger faster than most food.
