Both My Love and I enjoy spending time in the kitchen, cooking, baking and eating. So, it was only natural to invite Lovebug into the kitchen at an early age so we could share this passion with her. She started helping with food prep when she was about two years old. Some of her responsibilities back then included breaking the tough stems off of asparagus, rolling out pizza dough, putting toppings on pizza and helping measure and pour ingredients.
As she got older, her responsibilities and capabilities increased and last year we decided it was time we got her a knife so that she can help with some chopping. Because of my culinary school background it was really important to me that we got Lovebug the right tools to do the job.
So, I did a ton of research and when I came across the Curious Chef website, I knew that I had found what I was looking for. As I looked through the product offerings, I was drawn to how the company takes actual kitchen tools and adapts them for use by children, rather than making toys for the kitchen. I instantly felt at ease because they explicitly say that they design real tools specifically for kids with ergonomics and safety in mind. Perfect!!
We ended up purchasing the 3 Piece Nylon Knife Set and couldn't be happier with it. The knives are sturdy, strong and functional but safe at the same time. Lovebug was thrilled and it has been awesome to see her confidence grow as she learns how to cut fruits and vegetables.
I was so impressed with Curious Chef and the knives they make that I started following their various social media sites where they share fantastic ideas, tips and recipes. So, when I saw that Curious Chef was looking to partner with bloggers on product reviews, I jumped at the opportunity.
We received the 6 Piece Fruit and Veggie Prep Kit and spent the last month or so exploring Lovebug's new kitchen tools. Included in the kit is: an apple slicer, a vegetable scrubber, a melon baller, a vegetable peeler, a large mixing spoon, a medium knife as well as a grocery list notepad and stickers.
Here's what we thought:
