I went to elementary school between 40 and 45 years ago and I was never taught any distinction. I assumed the words were synonymous and have never been corrected for using "done" in place of "finished." Although, of course, I wouldn't say "finished" in the course of food preparation (unless I'm talking about after the meal, when there are no leftovers. Then the food is well and truly "finished." ).

And having said that, I'm done.
