Cool Cooking Gadgets for Kids
You and your children can make mini-cupcakes quickly and easily at the drop of a hat. Unlike larger cupcakes, it only takes about 5 minutes for cupcake makers to bake the mini cupcakes. This means that not only will you be doing a fun activity with your kids, you will also be saving energy. Using cupcake makers can be more of a "hands-on" experience for your kids because ovens have more hot surface areas than cupcake makers. This means cupcake makers can be a safer way to make special treats together.Even better, mini cupcakes are a better portion size for children (and adults), and a healthier snack option than oversized cupcakes.
Kids like to have their own special utensils that only they will use when in the kitchen. Set aside an area in one of your utensil drawers for essential cooking tools such as a wooden spoon, a smaller sized spatula and a plastic spreading knife just for your special kitchen companion. Other items to consider are measuring spoons, a small whisk and a small rolling pin.
While step stools might not be technically classified as gadgets, step stools are still essential for children in the kitchen. Your child is going to want to be next to you working on the countertops. A step stool will also make washing dirty faces and sticky hands easier for you.
