The TARDIS kitchen was a kitchen in the Doctor's TARDIS. The food machine was usually located there, (PROSE: The Room With No Doors) although it was known to "wander" the corridors. (PROSE: Christmas on a Rational Planet) Food machines quickly became obsolete in TARDISes, and were replaced by full kitchens. (WC: Shada)

Professor Chronotis had a kitchen in his TARDIS which was immediately adjacent to the control room, where he would go to make tea for visitors. Chronotis mentioned to Romana II that in Type 40 TARDISes the kitchens were too far away from the control room, but she told him that she had never known the Fourth Doctor to use it anyway.[source needed]

By the time of the Sixth Doctor, his ship did include a full kitchen; Evelyn Smythe used it multiple times to make breakfast, even when it was, in fact, the Doctor's turn to do so. She noted that the room automatically restocked itself: there were always exactly six eggs, a fresh pint of milk and freshly baked bread in the kitchen every morning. She used this to make scrambled eggs with toast, served with bacon and freshly-brewed tea, as well. (AUDIO: Project: Lazarus)

Sam Jones told the Eighth Doctor's other companion Fitz Kreiner that the TARDIS didn't have a kitchen, just a food machine. Fitz, who preferred making meals himself, found a kitchen, but wasn't sure whether Sam simply hadn't known about it, or if it had been created for him. (PROSE: Autumn Mist)
