Junior Chef

It is never too early to start cooking, which is why Williams-Sonoma offers a line of Junior Chef kitchen tools. These kitchen necessities are perfect for any child who has expressed an interest of learning how to work his way around the kitchen. Junior Chef kitchen tools let your young ones experiment and test their own recipes and cooking techniques out in the kitchen while not causing any damage to the tools you use to make dinner every night.

One of the most important tools any chef can have is a good set of knives. Junior Chef kitchen tools features a set built especially for those just learning how to chop, dice and mince. Give your little one a knife set that includes a chef knife for common kitchen tasks, a serrated knife for utility purposes, a paring knife for intricate cuts and a set of shears for learning how to cut a chicken. A knife set can include a sharpener so you kids learn the importance of sharp blades and a carrying case for transport and storage.

Junior Chef kitchen tools include all of the frying pans, skillets and pots that your kid needs to create an entire meal. Skillets are great for cooking breakfast, while frying pans work for more complicated grilled meats and stir fry dishes. A good set of pots is important for boiling basic staples, such as potatoes and pasta, while a sauce pan lets them simmer and stew toppings.

Our Junior Chef cooking tools feature nonstick surfaces for easy cleanup. The pots and pans are a little lighter than normal ones, letting smaller chefs handle them well in the kitchen. The stainless-steel handles come covered with silicone sleeves that help protect hands from getting burned. For transferring dishes to the oven simply remove the silicone sleeve and place it in a device heated up to 600 degrees Fahrenheit.

If you have a child who wants to grow up to be a famous pastry chef, the Junior Chef bakeware set gives them all of the tools they need to learn and grow. One of the most important things in baking is to make accurate measurements, and the measuring cups and spoons in this set give accurate readings for everything from flour to sugar. The rolling pin lets your little ones flatten out their dough to make things like pizza and pie crusts, while the pan with a rack is perfect for putting cookies into the oven and then letting them cool on the counter. The bakeware set also comes with a convenient carrying case for easy storage.

No kitchen is complete without its share of gadgets. Find a set of task-specific items to give your kids an easier and more efficient cooking experience. A can opener is perfect for opening a can of evaporated milk for homemade candy, while an apple peeler is the best bet for preparing apples for a pie. A whisk is the perfect accessory for making egg dishes, while a cheese grater lets your kid cover his pasta creations with a heaping helping of fresh Parmesan cheese.

When just starting out in the kitchen, a knowledge base has room to grow. Help foster a knowledge base with a Junior Chef cookbook that teaches all of the essentials, such as making stocks and how to grill meats. No little chef is ready to cook without the proper attire, which is why we offer chef hats and smocks that fit even the smallest of cooks. Do not forget to equip your little chef with an oven mitt for handling hot pots and pans.
