Curious Chef 15 Pc Dessert Set

Review Retreat- Curious Chef LogoMy 23 month old son loves to help me in the kitchen. He loves to help put away the dishes, particularity our spatulas and mixing/serving spoons. Lately, he has been interested in helping me cook, so I turned to Curious Chef for their child friendly products.

Curious Chef realizes that kids all over the world are anxious to help mom or dad out in the kitchen. Not only do kids find cooking fun, but it is a great learning experience. Curious Chef provides kid friendly cooking utensils that are safe, comfortable and easy to use. Curious Chef sells individual items, boxed items, kids cooking with kids sets and kids cooking with adult sets. While I would eventually like to try all of their boxed sets, I thought the 15 Piece Dessert Set would be most appropriate for our current needs.

items included in the 15 piece dessert setThe items in this set aren't necessarily designed to be used together. For example, they have combined cookie cutters with ice cream bowls and scoop. I prefer this though, because this set can be used for multiple purposes. The 15 Piece Dessert Set includes:
  • 1 Large Silicone Mixing Spoon
  • 1 Ice Cream Scoop
  • 2 Piece Silicone Pinch Bowl
  • 3 Piece Prep Bowl Set w/lids
  • 2 Ice Cream Bowls
  • 1 Red Root Beer Float Mug
  • 1 Blue Root Beer Float Mug
  • 1 Rabbit Cookie Cutter
  • 1 Duck Cookie Cutter
  • 1 Heat Cookie Cutter
  • 1 Star Cookie Cutter
The Ice Cream Bowls can be used for so many foods. In addition to ice cream, they can be used for cereal, soup, snacks, macaroni and cheese, and so much more. What I really like about Curious Chef is that they sell boxed sets but also offer you the option of purchasing each item individually.

Ayden with Curious Chef SpatulaCurious? Ah, yes very much so. My little man was very anxious to discover all of the items in our set. Here he is examining the large mixing spoon. If you look closely, you can see the end of the spoon is flexible. All of the handles are made with silicone to help secure a tight and slip free grip. As you can imagine, it can be very difficult to ask your toddler to hold a pose. My sons arm is covering the handle, making it look smaller than it actually is. In reality, the handles are the perfect size for small hands, and can be used by adults as well.

Ayden cooking with Curious ChefThe recommended age for the Curious Chef 15 Pc Dessert Set is 5+. My little guy had no trouble holding the utensils. It's comforting knowing Curious Chef offers safe child friendly products. Ayden had a blast helping mommy bake sugar cookies. I did have to work with him a bit, because he was tossing the batter right out of the bowl. Regardless, we both had fun and it was a great experience for the both of us. If you are willing to work with your toddler, this would be a great set to begin with. Clean up takes just a few seconds as all Curious Chef products are dishwasher safe.

Sugar CookiesThese may not be the prettiest sugar cookies ever made, but not bad for our first time. Ayden had so much fun helping mommy bake cookies. He is also very excited about his very own Root Beer Float Mug. We have them frosting in the freezer and cannot wait to use them for floats. If your child expresses an interest in cooking, Curious Chef offers all of the products needed help spark their creativity.
