Giveaway ~KinderKitchen tools for kids from Kuhn Rikon.


I was introduced to cooking and kitchen chores from a very young age. I vividly remember standing on a stool at the sink rinsing cups whilst my mother washed them. I also remember standing on a stool next to my mum watching her whilst she prepared the dinner. My mum used to give me a butter knife to cut soft things with so that I could develop my chopping skills.

I too followed suit and introduced both my daughters to cooking at a very young age and I am really proud that they have both become very confident in the kitchen. Introducing kids to cook sets them up for life and nowadays so many companies are making available children friendly baking kits, utensils and even children friendly knives such as the new Kuhn Rikon Kinder Kitchen collection.




The KinderKitchen tools for kids is perfect for creating fun in the kitchen for small cooks and budding chefs. The New KinderKitchen range includes the new Dog Knives, available with serrated or non-serrated blades.


Both blades are made from durable Japanese stainless steel, strong enough to cut soft foods but not little fingers. The dog’s ears doubles as a hand guard.

The knives are 17cm in length, and they can be purchased separately or as a set which includes both knives and a pair KinderKitchen cutting shears.

The knives are available in purple and pink or blue and green. The knives are retailing at £7.95 each r can be bought as a pair for £14.95.


An additional set is available which also includes together with the knives the cutting shears which retails at £22.95

These lovely knives are safe for little fingers and are perfect to introduce knife skills to the youngest member of your family.

As always I love my readers to be able to sample products that I have tested in the citrusspice kitchens. KUHN Rikon have been really generous and will send one set of knives to a reader.

    I think as young as possible :) They don't necessarily have to be hands on at first, you can introduce them to cooking by letting them watch you and explain what each ingredient is and what you're doing,etc. My 2 year old loves standing on a chair and watching me make tea :)

  20. whenever they start asking to help x cupcakes is great fun to start as a toddler especially decorating them x

    ReplyDelete
  21. As soon as they can appreciate kitchen safety - so a staged approach - no harm done in rolling pastry when very young, but cooking on the hob comes later.

    ReplyDelete
  22. As soon as they can get involved

    ReplyDelete
  23. I think kids should be cooking as as they can! xx

  32. As children often like to be active and involved in tasks I believe as toddlers ie. 2years + approximately. Health and Safety is an important ISSUE. Whilst I believe it is also beneficial to improve life skills, family bonding, promote healthy nutrition etc.

  33. I think as young as they're able. My sister and I bake with my niece, and she is nearly 3. She loves it! We teach her to respect the hot areas of the kitchen ie the oven and she has her only special stool for sitting on to mix things and decorate.

    ReplyDelete
  34. As young as possible, under supervision about 3.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think children should be allowed to help in the kitchen as soon as they can stand safely on a stool (next to grandma) about 2 to 3 years old.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  46. They can be introduced to simple aspects of cooking at a really young age. One year olds can help pour and stir, as well as touch the ingredients and dough.

    ReplyDelete
  47. My daughter was always interested, so she is a little helper from age 4. But I think it really depends on the child, when he/she likes it, it would be a great fun at any age :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. My son started showing interest at about two and a half

    ReplyDelete
  49. I think it's great to involve, educate and get children enjoying being in the kitchen as young as possible. It improves their awareness of food, where it comes from, what it does for you and ofcourse there's the safety aspect.

    ReplyDelete
  50. as young as it is safe for them too, my daughter made her first chocolate crispy cakes at 2.

    ReplyDelete
  55. about 2-3 years old ,depending on their abilities and skills

    ReplyDelete
  56. As soon as they can stand up!

    ReplyDelete
  57. about two when they can play with cookie dough cutting out shapes ,rolling and experiencing the textures and tastes

    ReplyDelete
  58. I think it depends on the child, I would trust my eldest, but probably not my youngest as she would do stupid things and she doesn't always listen.

    ReplyDelete
  59. As soon as possible with adult supervision

    ReplyDelete
  60. My kids started to ask to help and bake at around 4

    ReplyDelete
  71. 3-4 as long as it's safe and pretty basic stuff to start with!

    ReplyDelete
  72. As soon as they want to get involved!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  74. As soon as possible. As long as it's safe, I would say 3/4 years old.

    They can watch you cook as a baby in a high chair, prep and clean as soon as they can stand and cook/bake with supervision as toddlers. Encourage early!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  126. I think children can be engaged in the kitchen as early as possible. Even when they themselves are too small to help, I think it's important they sit in the kitchen watching you cook or bake and talk to them the whole time, explaining what you are doing. You can give them pastry to play with and they can cut their own little shapes with plastic cutters as toddlers, and then begin the process of introducing proper cooking with the basics, like stirring bowls, kneading pastry, tasting etc

    ReplyDelete
  127. As soon as they show some interest. My little boy was two

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  134. As early as possible. Even as toddlers, kids can help pouring ingredients into scales etc. Also baking with kids is a great way to get them interested in food.

    ReplyDelete
  135. My son is starting to help now, he's just turned two and is starting to understand and observe me, follow instructions and just have fun getting messy, I don't take it serious yet as he's so young. Cooking is a very important skill but I want my son to enjoy it just as much as i do!!!
