Buy Market Tracker reportMETHODOLOGY

Online surveys are conducted with 500 primary grocery shoppers in the U.S. at the beginning of each quarter.  Respondents are screened based on past quarter purchase behavior.  They had to have purchased cookware, bakeware, and/or kitchen gadgets or tools either for themselves/their household or to give as a gift in the previous quarter. The primary grocery shopper is the person in the household who is responsible for purchasing more than 50% of the household’s groceries.  The research is conducted with primary grocery shoppers because they are typically the primary shoppers for housewares products in addition to grocery products and are also likely to be the person responsible for food preparation for the household.
