The cook and the cooker

All my friends agree that I’m a good cooker!

This is a good try, but you are over-using the rule that says you can change a verb into a profession by adding ‘er’:

  • drive – driver
  • teach – teacher
  • write – writer
  • etc.

As with so many rules in English, there are exceptions. If you cook then you are a cook!

Cook or chef
A cook (or ‘chef’)
A kitchen ‘cooker’

If you really are – as your friends say – a cooker, then you are a domestic appliance used in many residential homes for heating food.

Good luck with that! 🙂
