Any adult who loves to cook would agree there is nothing more exciting than getting a new toy for the kitchen. Well, if kids are spending more time in the kitchen, why not let them have their own gadgets? Let’s review a couple of the top kid kitchen gadgets.
If there were one company who understood the importance of getting kids in the kitchen, it would be Curious Chef. All of their products are developed with kids in mind. What starter chef wouldn’t love to have his or her chefs’ hat or apron? Couple that with a set of knives and some mixing bowls and you will be able to sit down while your little one waits on you with sheer delight.
The three-piece nylon knife set from Curious Chef is a big winner with younger kids. The ergonomic handles are easy to grip, slip resistant and made of durable materials. The blades are serrated so they do not need to be sharp. These knives will cut through tough vegetables but are safe on skin. Letting children learn valuable life skills by assisting with the chopping is a great way to let them savor a feeling of accomplishment.
The entire line of Curious Chef products is fun, bright and easy to use. Curious Chef went above and beyond in designing these kitchen tools to be fun and inspire creativity in children. So pull up a step stool and let your kid help you in the kitchen.
George Foreman Grill
Ok, not everyone will agree that giving a child a portable indoor grill would be a good idea, but I beg to differ. Of course, teaching heat safety is a great idea and this should not be provided to extremely inexperienced children, but having an easy way to cook is great for kids.
Great dinners can be made from a simple George Foreman Grill. For instance, why not use it as a sandwich press? Make hot sandwiches with tons of melted cheese and don’t worry about trying to figure out how to flip the sandwich. The heated top and bottom do all of the work for you.
Great for hotdogs, grilled veggies and even hamburgers and steaks, for the more experienced chef, the George Foreman Grill is a cinch to get meals done. Not only is the George Foreman Grill easy to use, it is easy to clean up. With the non-stick surfaces, just wait until it cools, remove the trays and wash them by hand.
Who would have thought that cleaning up could be so much fun. As important as learning to cook, learning to clean is a big part of being in the kitchen. The makers of Bubble Scrubber have a great idea when it comes to getting kids to clean up their mess. This great nylon scrubber has a hole in the middle, which allows for kids to, you guessed it, blow bubbles while cleaning. This innovative bubble wand will have kids fighting over who gets to do the dishes.
With simple to use designs and new gadgets coming out all the time, there is no reason kids should not be in the kitchen. From every aspect of prep, cooking and cleaning, kids should be a part of learning their way around the kitchen. Go pick up these useful tools and let your kids show you what they are made of.
