The new Cooking with Curious Chef cookbook not only provides recipes for your favorite treats but teaches your child how to cook, too! Inside this interactive cookbook, you will find 36 recipes that kids can make on their own using the easy-to-use Curious Chef® kitchen tools included in the 30-Piece Caddy Collection. As a learning tool, the cookbook recipes are grouped by the skills learned and tools used so kids can gain mastery with a wide variety of cooking tools and skills. And each chapter includes a different activity to inspire your child’s cooking creativity, plus a cooking-related puzzle for kids to complete while they’re waiting during prep time. The Curious Chef® tools and cookbook bring out the inner-foodies in kids while teaching them valuable cooking skills!

You’re pretty much guaranteed to make some memories with the kids in the process and, after all, those eggs aren’t going to whisk themselves.

These cooking tools from Curious Chef are perfect for those budding chefs in your household! They are specially designed for smaller hands! The Halloween cookie cutter set was so cute and I know we will use it for years to come! The cutters were easy to grip and the cookies turned out great!

This knife set is tough on food, but easy on skin. It is the perfect way to teach kiddos how to be safe in the kitchen. My boys love the fun colors and the fact they can actually cut stuff up with me. They even go the distance of cleaning them up themselves and putting them away. The handles is large enough that kiddos can get a great grip on them.

The 17 pc Measure and Prep kit has come in handy for me even when I am not cooking with my littles. It comes with a timer, which I did not previously have, and tons of measuring cups and storage containers. I think this set is perfect for the young, or just young at heart!

I was surprised at how easily the nylon knives cut our fruit. It felt really safe letting the kids help and the kids gained confidence and enjoyed helping me make our healthy fruit salsa for snack. With the nylon knives I wasn’t worried about them cutting their little fingers, which took some of the stress off.

I was very impressed with the grip on the 2 quart mixing bowl. Our daughter was able to comfortably grip the bowl while using an electric mixer and she had total control over the cookie turner – it was sized perfectly for her

I recommend the Curious Chef 3 Piece Veggie Set to the parents of 5 year old prep chefs everywhere. This is yet another way to allow her to be a major part of food preparation. She feels independent, confident and in control.

I ordered this for my 5-year-old son for Christmas. He loves to help out in the kitchen. Everything included is just like the real thing. The quality is amazing. I was hesitant at first to spend the money, but it was well worth it once I saw how well everything was made.
Well made. Worth every penny. Quality kitchen tools made to fit little ones hands. My 5-year-old nephew is so excited to be able to help in the kitchen.

Was very pleased with the Curious Chef® set I gave one of my little nieces for Christmas. She has used it almost daily and loves pretend and real cooking with it.

Kids are very capable if we are patient. My granddaughter and I have so much fun cooking together. I have a number of Curious Chef® products and plan to get more.

Thank you Curious Chef® for your wonderful nylon knives for kids! My 3-year-old is learning how to cut with her daddy…They’re making “monkey bread” and cutting up refrigerator biscuits…
- Christi B.
I purchased it for my grandson because he likes to “cook” and help in the kitchen. All items were the perfect size for little hands and they came in a neutral green and white…not PINK like most children’s kitchen tools. Thanks for making something functional and gender neutral.
These are great kids’ tools that actually work…My daughter loves cooking with mommy using her tools. This is a great way to start teaching kids healthy habits while building lasting memories!

I am THRILLED I found you! Your products are awesome and your prices are reasonable. Thank you!

Our 4-year-old loves his chef set! All the items are the perfect size for his hands. He loves making real food with his tools and being the chef in the house.

My grandchildren are learning how to cook. The set provides cooking utensils that are just the right size for their smaller hands. We have used the cookies cutters to make pizza shapes from rolled biscuit dough. The whisk has made my granddaughter’s best creation to date, blueberry pancakes. If you are introducing young children to “the joy of cooking”, this is the set to buy!

I have to say my son's absolute favorite item from Curious Chef is the rolling pin. He loves helping me roll out pizza dough and that in turn encourages him to eat his meals.
- Ashley Barnhart
I am so impressed with the quality of the products after receiving the pizza party kit for my kids. The kids LOVED having tools made just for them. My daughter is already asking when the next cooking party is.
The kids LOVE the fact that they have a knife made just for them and mom lets them do some of the cutting now!
My son is constantly wanting to bake another cake or create any kind of treats, just as long as he can use his Curious Chef products that he loves so much. I love them because of their durability and the fact that they are just as good, if not better than

I let my daughter use her rolling pin to roll play dough and try the cookie cutters. she knew what to do when it came time to actually make the cookies and she wants to help in the kitchen every time I bake!

So excited to have found your products! Just placed an order for a friend's birthday gift, and very anxious to order for my OWN little chefs!! (The Easter Bunny will be bringing them their goodies!)

Love the caddy! I use all of your products for myself and for my two granddaughters! They are the BEST! The grand kids learn so much when using your items! They are comfortable for them to hold and durable, too!
I love the curious chef knife for introducing knife safety without having to worry about my daughter cutting herself. I think it it is the perfect beginner knife!
My two year old is (for better or worse!) on her way to foodie-dom thanks to your cutting board and knives. We love them!
