Junior Chef

Cooking in the kitchen as a child or young adult can both instill a passion for cooking in young chefs as well as build great memories they can look back on as they get older. When you have an aspiring or junior chef in your kitchen, you want to make sure he has the right tools to succeed. Williams-Sonoma offers several different sets of cookware and gadgets that are ideal for getting your young chef started in the kitchen. While tools and gadgets are important, sometimes looking the part of a chef can be just as important. Order a chef’s jacket and hat that are made to look identical to the classic chef uniform. Both pieces are embroidered with high-quality thread. The jacket can be personalized with your junior chef’s name as well. If your young chef enjoys cooking for others, look at our selection of gift packaging so he can present the food he cooks in style.


The cookware is available in three-piece and five-piece sets. Each set has a 10" fry pan, a chef’s pan and lid. The five-piece set also has an 8" fry pan and a griddle pan. The pans all have silicone covers that will protect young hands from hot handles. The handles can be removed if the pan is going in the oven. There is also a bakeware set that comes with a rolling pin, a quarter-sheet pan, a storage bag, standard measuring cups, a measuring spoon and a cooling rack. Check our selection of pizza stones and tools if your young chef is a pizza fan.


When your chef is learning to cook, you want him to be comfortable with his tools and with reading recipes. Some recipes call for non-standard measurements. For those types of recipes, you may want to invest in a scale so he gets the exact measurements required. A budding chef also benefits from having the right prep tools. Quality knives and shears can make prepping food much easier. The Wüsthof Gourmet Junior Chef 6-Piece Knife Set gives learning chefs exactly the tools they need. The set comes with a paring knife, a serrated utility knife with a rounded tip, a chef’s knife, a knife sharpener, pull-apart kitchen shears and a durable nylon storage case. Check our selection of mixing bowls to add to the useful tools at your young chef’s disposal.


Made especially for smaller hands, the gadget set has durable silicone handles that help prevent slipping. The tools are made of stainless-steel to make them durable and prevent rusting. The set comes with a vegetable peeler, a grater, a garlic press and a storage bag. All of these tools are dishwasher-safe, so the cleanup is quick and easy. You also have a choice of wooden tools with silicone handles. This set includes a stirring spoon, a blunt-end spoon, a slotted spoon and a cotton storage bag, and they are safe to use with nonstick surfaces. When you are gathering tools for an aspiring chef, don’t forget to check out our decorating tools so he can personalize and decorate his baked goods. This can be rewarding after the hard work of baking and cooking, as well as something fun for the family to do together in the kitchen.


Another important essential to getting a young adult or child interested in cooking is teaching him how to read a recipe. The Junior Chef Cookbook offers 30 recipes designed to give learning chefs experience with all stages of food making, from starters to desserts. Don’t forget to check out our baking mixes and ingredients to help your budding chef start cooking as soon as he receives his Junior Chef cookware and bakeware.
