Some ideas to make cooking easier when you have a disability.
Store all the items you use together, near the area you'll use them most.
Using a rolling pin one-handed is tricky at best. You can make your own one-handed rolling pins relatively easily.
Use a "Marguerite" (steamer) to cook vegetables. Most steamers are easier to lift than the whole pot, especially if the pot is full of water.
Use exact sizes measuring cups instead of the multi-purpose measuring jugs.
If your pot only has one handle, you can use a camping pot holder to lift pots with both the pot handle and the camping handle.
If you are a wheelchair user, you can use a shaving mirror with goose neck angled above the stove in order to see in the pots on the stove.
Keep several cutting boards. It may be easier to change cutting boards than clean one up while in the middle of cooking a meal.
I never drink water; that is the stuff that rusts pipes.
