Cooking assistant is an application that needs to find a trade-off between providing efficient help to the users (e.g., reminding them to stir a meal if it is about to burn) and avoiding users' annoyance. This trade-off may vary in different contexts, such as cooking alone or in a group, cooking new or known recipe etc. The results of the user study, presented in this paper, show which features of a multimodal interface users perceive as socially acceptable or unacceptable in different situations, and how this perception depends on user's age
