You can pursue many dreams in The Sims 4 with the right tools, items, and expansion packs. In one household, you may aspire to have a family of actors and actresses; in another, you might have an astronaut seeking Sixam. For all the chefs out there with the Home Chef Hustle pack, you can use prepped ingredients to make cooking easier and cheaper, as long as you have the skill and appliances. If you’re completing an aspiration or yearning to use only the best items in your cooking, continue reading to discover how to make an excellent-quality prepped ingredient in The Sims 4.

How to Make an Excellent Quality Prepped Ingredient in The Sims 4: Home Chef Hustle

You’ll need three things to make excellent-quality prepped ingredients in The Sims 4: the ChowBella Stand Mixer, high-quality ingredients, and high cooking skills. The stand mixer allows you to prepare ingredients, and using quality ingredients raises your chances of making better food. Having traits like perfectionist, essence of flavor, and fresh chef will also boost your odds of making excellent food.

While you are not required to use high-quality items or have a high cooking level to make excellent meals, they’ll help you if you don’t have these traits or keep making normal prepped ingredients.

If you’ve completed the master chef aspiration and unlocked the fresh chef trait, you’ll have no problems making excellent-quality ingredients. However, this requires reaching level 8 of the chef career and having high-level cooking and gourmet cooking skills, making it challenging to complete. If your Sim is an experienced chef and needs an extra boost, this is worthwhile to pick up before switching back to Appliance Wiz.
