Playful Chef Deluxe Cooking Kit with Blue Apron Review (MindWare)

What It Is

With the Playful Chef Deluxe Cooking Kit, kids 6 and up, can cook up healthy recipes using the set's pint-sized cooking tools and recipe cards. Some of the recipes include directions on how to make a cake, zucchini fries, an egg-and-cheese souffle, smoothies, and chicken nuggets. The large recipe cards use drawings and easy-to-follow instructions to help kids make the food. The recipe cards also give you an ingredient fun fact, show all the tools you will need to prep your food, and a little history about the recipe you are about to make. The directions are detailed and ask kids to get help from an adult helper and also encourage kids to clean up.

The kit comes with a blue apron, cupcake wrappers, scissors, a whisk, measuring cups, a baking pan, a mixing bowl, scissors, measuring spoons, and five recipe cards.

Is It Fun?

This is a great kit for a young budding chef. All of the tools are dishwasher-safe and small enough for little hands to handle. Playsets like this one encourage hands-on play and teach kids independence, while also educating them about food and where food comes from.

Who It’s For

The Playful Chef Deluxe Cooking Kit with Blue Apron is for ages 6 and up. Adult supervision is recommended when making the recipes.
