PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – More men are now slaving away in the kitchen alongside women during Thanksgiving Day preparations.

At least, that’s according to a 2013 survey from food manufacturer Butterball.

The company says that one in four men claim to help out more in the kitchen now than they did a few years ago, and nearly half of men (42%) play a significant role in preparing or cooking the Thanksgiving turkey.

Furthermore, 84% of men are involved in preparations for the Thanksgiving meal in some way – whether it’s making a side dish or helping to bake pies or cook the turkey.

Butterball also says that more than half of the men surveyed (58%) feel they’re primarily responsible for household meals throughout the year.
