We have it! And it’s great! You can get your children’s mini hands on them when buying the Kids Kitchen Essentials kit.
During our sessions, we realised that many parents come reluctant to let small children use kitchen knives, and they are absolutely right to feel that a kitchen knife is not meant to be used by children.
Our sessions are usually aimed at children up to 5 years old, so we needed to find the most suitable tool to get little hands involved in doing some of the chopping and cutting. Alongside cutting with kids scissors, tearing leaves, using pastry cutters etc – we tried a number of knives.
We tried spreaders, white plastic picnic knives, table knives, colourful knives. None of them did the job quite how we would have liked it. They were too brittle, too blunt, too sharp.
One day, after numerous attempts and internet searches we came across the plastic knives that we believe to be the best safe kids knife. When we started using our plastic knives in the Kids Kitchen sessions, the positive feedback that we received was overwhelming. Parents were very excited to see their little children doing jobs that are usually carried out by adults. They wanted to take the knives home.
The knives that you will find in the Kids Kitchen Essentials Kit have been tried and tested by many parents and small children who cooked their own meals from scratch when attending one of our sessions.
Say goodbye to solo chopping and hello to tandem chopping. Happy cooking!
