My daughter was very excited when the box with the 6 Piece Fruit and Veggie Prep Kit arrived. Right away she thought it was for her. She is really getting into cooking. The kit includes a nylon knife that cuts food, but not skin. Since it is not metal, it is perfect for cutting lettuce, too. Metal knives can turn your lettuce brown. Nylon does not. The kit also includes a melon baller, apple slicer, vegetable peeler, and a large silicone mixing spoon. My daughter fell in love with the vegetable scrubbing brush…….don’t ask me why! She has been a scrubbing fool! I had to put a stop to it when she started scrubbing her brothers. Although, sometimes I think they need scrubbing more than the vegetables. LOL! Curious Chef also throws in a shopping list and some stickers to make things extra fun. These are all real kitchen tools for kids. Sure you could buy them some toys, but why not the real thing?
The knife is BPA free and good for kids 4 and older. I really like the rubber grips on the handle. They seem to help keep a solid grip on the handle. We tried out the kit making a salad and it worked really well. The vegetable peeler is sharp so be aware of that with younger children. The knife worked well, but it takes some work to get through harder items. I don’t think it would work well on softer items as it may just tear through them rather than actually cutting them.
In short………..we love our Curious Chef kitchen tools. My daughter gets out the tools and creates snacks and small meals for herself and her brothers. I pretend not to notice because I love to see what she creates on her own.
Here is a salad we made together using our Curious Chef Tools. Teaching your children the skills they need to cook is one of the most important things you can do for their future health. Why not make it fund bonding time too.
