I come from a family of cooks. While I might not be the best chef around, my son is bound to have some sort of culinary gene in him. When I was approached to review Kuhn Rikon’s Kinderkitchen® line, I could not wait to see what products they offered! While my son might be too young now, he will certainly have much use for these items in the future. Kinderkitchen is a line of fun tools made just for kids! Whimsical in colors and details, these tools are perfectly kid-sized to get your little one excited about cooking! Each tool is designed specifically for children with function, safety and fun in mind.
Kuhn Rikon develop, produce and distribute high-quality cookware and accessories that make efficient and healthy cooking possible. Thanks to the cooperation with consumers, cooking schools and research institutes, the comprehensive range of cookware and kitchen gadgets also meets the wishes and needs of the trade partners. They can offer their customers attractive products in the very best Swiss quality.
Kuhn Rikon generously sent me the Cockatiel Whisk, the Dog Knife with Teeth, Bird’s Eye Open Spoon from their Kinderkitchen line. I loved how colorful the tools were and that they are actual cooking utensils, not just toys. The tools are just the right size for small hands. Made of durable plastic and metal, I liked that they would not easily break if dropped on the floor. The animal designs on each one was a nice creative touch!
The Cockatiel Whisk is in the shape of a cute tropical cockatiel! The “feathers” are great for whisking and beating. The whisk is 9 inches in length and fits standard bowls and pans. If you notice the bird’s beak, it works perfect for preventing little hands from slipping past the handle.
The blade of the Dog Knife with Teeth is made of Japanese carbon steel! This means it is sharp enough to cut food, but luckily won’t cut your little one’s fingers. If you look at the “dog’s ears”, they actually act as hand guards. I even used it myself for cutting up a pear! The little dog design was so cute. The tail is made of a really soft plastic so no worries about it poking your child.
When I first saw the Bird’s Eye Open Spoon, I wasn’t sure what to use it for! I quickly learned though that the hole in the spoon lowers resistance, which makes it so much easier for your little one to stir. The silicone “beak” works as a spatula and is very effective at scraping the sides of bowls and pans.At ten inches in length, the spoon is great for regular-sized bowls and pans.
Buy It: You can purchase Kinderkitchen tools right on the Kuhn Rikon website! The whisk retails for $12.00, the knife for $10.00, and the spoon for $8.00. The line is also available for purchase on Amazon.
