Closed: Curious Chef Review & Ice Cream Scoop Giveaway


I am sure you all have heard the saying, "The kitchen is the heart of the home." Well, in my home, it really is. In fact, no one is ever turned away for a meal. The more the merrier! We often have 7-8 people. We have incorporated teaching with our cooking and always have at least one child in the kitchen helping every meal. It is a great start to learning how to cook and have fun at the same time. Recently, I came across Curious Chef and they have wonderful products for children to use in the kitchen. They are just the right size for children.

About Curious Chef: Their 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.
Welcome! We hope you and your kids enjoy your own journey of cooking, discovery, and fun.

A Tiny Hands Review of Curious Chef

As I stated prior, there is always at least one child in the kitchen while we are cooking. We start this at a very young age so they are learning, but at the same time we want to develop children that are independent and self-sufficient. The kitchen is a great place to start that teaching. They are now proud to have tools that are their size and their very own. 

We were sent the 15 piece Dessert Set to test and review and they loved using this set. The Curious Chef products are not just little versions of adult kitchen items. Their products are ergonomically designed to fit the small hands of children with grips to keep the tools safely in their hands. The kids are thinking they are just fun products for them, but they are fun products that allow kids to begin to gain confidence and grow their cooking skills.
The Curious Chef products are a great gift idea for kids. There is quite a selection of choices and they get the family working together and talking with one another.
