About Us: Our Story
As parents, we loved bonding with our little ones in the kitchen—it’s a place where learning is exciting and even disasters can be fun! But we struggled to find cooking utensils our children could use safely, comfortably, and successfully.
That’s when the light bulb flashed on!
As professionals in the house wares industry, we knew we could design quality kitchen utensils and gadgets that children could use and enjoy. After years of development and real-world testing, the Curious Chef® collection of kid-friendly kitchen tools was born.
Tools, not Toys
Every piece in our collection is sized for small hands. What’s more, we made them bright, fun, and easy to grip. Even our cutlery is plastic and nylon, with blunt tips for safety. Our collection is extensive, with nearly everything a sous-chef might need.
Join the Journey of Discovery
It soon became clear that when children have their own set of kitchen tools and gadgets, they can get pretty excited about cooking. In no time at all, budding chefs will be gathering at kitchen counters, concocting their very own edible creations, and bonding with adults in the comfort of home.
Emma & Ethan jump (almost literally) at the chance to help me in the kitchen. When I asked them if they wanted to help me make pumpkin muffins they grabbed their stools and started dragging them to the countertops. When I pulled out the Curious Chef 17 piece Measure & Prep Set and told them it was a special cooking set just for them… well.. I thought their smiles might break their little faces.
I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the prep tools. The plastic is nice and thick on the measuring cups and spoons and I actually considered putting them in my drawer in the kitchen (In the end, Emma won. They are safely stored in her room for the next time.). As you can see, Emma was able to handle the pieces well and the recipe turned out great (she is an awesome little cook).
Cooking with Mommy is a fairly new adventure for Ethan. He had a hard time taking turns with sissy, but enjoyed “cleaning up” his chocolate chip spill (yes, you guessed it… he ate them. See it on his face?). He loves to watch the mixer work.
My overall experience with the Measure & Prep Kit was excellent. The bowls were a great size for the kids to help pour in. Next time I will take the measuring cups and spoons apart so they will have a little more control, but the product was great quality. Emma & Ethan wouldn’t leave the timer alone, so I couldn’t test the accuracy, but it’s a fun little extra. The spoon was just the right size to scoop the goop out into the cupcake pans. It was a super fun experience for them and for me as well. The kids enjoy the bonding time with me (and their food!). It gives them a feeling of pride when they give Daddy a muffin and say “We made this!”.
