I loved cooking when I was a child. By the time I was 8 years old I was making dinner for my family and looking through my mom’s cookbooks for fun. Now that I have kids of my own, it’s important to me to share my love of cooking with them. Curious Chef products are the perfect tools to do just that.
There I so much to love about bringing kids into the kitchen with you and Curious Chef is committed to this idea. Curious Chef believes that teaching children to cook builds essential life skills like self-confidence, good eating habits, promotes ownership, fosters math and science skills, listening and following directions, teaches vocabulary and encourages spending family time together. These are all qualities that I truly believe are benefits to teaching children to cook and I was delighted to find a company that shared my own feelings so closely.
Curious Chef products impressed me with their quality right from the start. For example, Nylon knives are serrated and have a blunt tip to be safer on skin. The knives are sized down for small hands with button grips on soft touch handles to keep hands safe. No detail is overlooked in making these knives the perfect implement for a child to learn good knife skills safely. All of the Curious Chef line is made of nylon or silicon, is dishwasher safe and BPA free. These wonderful kitchen tools are all child sized without looking “babyish”. They have sturdy bases, color coding and wide pouring spouts. The attention that was paid to the design of Curious Chef’s tools will be immediately obvious to you.
My daughter now tries to get into the kitchen every opportunity she can get. She loves the Curious Chef apron because it feels to her like a “grown up” apron. I love the sturdy construction, adjustable straps and large pockets. My daughter’s favorite tools are the Pie Kit. She is slowing mastering lattice crust much to my husband’s delight and my diet’s dismay!
The best part of Curious Chef is that they make EVERYTHING your child could need in the kitchen. Knives, cookie cutters, spatulas, whisks, bowls and on and on. These are real working tools, not toys that will really make your child feel like they can cook. I am so excited to be planning kitchen projects with my daughter so that we can work through all of her tools and she can learn how to use all of them.
I have been completely delighted with every Curious Chef product I have tried and I am eager to explore some of their other kitchen items. If you are looking for a great way to incorporate STEAM lessons at home, Curious Chef kitchen tools are the very best product line available to help you do just that.
