What do I win?
The first time you unlock chopping boards which can be found in the kitchen section as shown in the picture below:
Further times you get 5LPs!
I can’t find one of the utensils, any tips?
The only advice I can really give you is to keep going, that is the only way you can find them- there is no trick to it, its completely random.
Is it worth using the lucky spin?
I would say no, it doesn’t give you one that you need it just gives you one at random so really it is probably just a waste of LPs
How do I start the collection again?
Once you have finished the collection you can click at the bottom of the medals list to start over.
This is my favourite hobby as its really quick to get LPs and money by doing it, you just need several sims in a room with a stove and toaster for each person and then do the 1 minute option over and over and within about an hour or so (depending on how many sims you have) you should be able to find all the utensils as long as you have unlocked all 6 levels! But there will be so many dishes laying around you should have a few sims there to clean them up. How Do I Have So Many LPs explains this in more detail.
Patrick says: “have all ten Sims in the room cooking and cleaning. That second it takes to present the dish can be used by the previous Sim to clean. I know it seems small, but over the course of that hour, ten Sims as opposed to six will yield a lot of money. ” And if you send your level six chefs to do another hobby then, restart them on the cooking hobby to get more money and an LP (as they will start at level one again they will get the rewards for levelling up)
