Within its small frame, the Best Chef kitchen combines lovely features to give kids maximum satisfaction from pretend play.
Its pass-through kitchen window design makes it an ideal kitchen for more than one child and increases its play value with kids. The clicking knobs that are present on the stove top and the oven offers realistic play for little ones.
Even at its compact size, this toy kitchen still comes with basic pretend play appliances like oven, cooking burners, refrigerator, coffee maker, etc. It also comes with some basic accessories pack to make sure your kid start role-playing immediately after unpacking.
At KidChenz, we love the Step2 Best Chef Toy Kitchen for the following reasons.
Lights and Sounds
Lights and sounds add to the entertainment value of children’s kitchens. The Best Chef play kitchen comes with an electronic stove top burner that adds to kids’ amazement with this kitchen. It makes a sizzling sound when the pan is placed on it and a bubbling noise when the pot is placed on it. This alone will provide valuable engagements for your kids and it’s one feature they will never get tired of.
As small as the kitchen is, it provides a pretty adequate storage for its wares. The plastic spice bottles and spice shakers can be placed on the racks. The play utensils and cups can be hung on the provided hooks all over the plastic toy kitchen. There is storage space inside the oven and in the refrigerator.
As a plus, there is a recycle bin where more accessories can be stored. These storage spaces are more than adequate to accommodate the accompanying 25-piece accessory set and the extras you will be buying for your child.
The Best Chef is made with the safety of kids in mind. First, the manufacturer has ensured no toxic material is used in its production. Secondly, unlike some kids’ kitchens, play foods and other accessories of this kitchen will not pose a choking hazard to toddlers since they’re big enough.
There is not much to call a counter space on the kitchen. What could have been the counter space is taken up by the sink, the stove top and the coffee maker. A counter space adds additional entertainment value for the little ones. This is something offered in abundance in top play kitchens like the KidKraft Uptown Espresso and the Melissa and Doug Wooden Chef playsets.
There is no doubt the Step2 Best Chef playset is a good kitchen. We compare the top play kitchen and it’s one of the best. It’s perfectly suited for 1-3 years old though older kids can still have fun on it. If you’re looking for a great toy kitchen that won’t take much room space, then this should be your number one consideration.
