This toy is a fabulous value if you want an all-inclusive cooking set without having to buy all the pieces separately. My only complaint is that the pots are a tiny bit small for a normal play-kitchen but since there are so many pieces, it's just as well because it would be hard to store it all otherwise. Anyway, this cooking set lets you mock play all of the steps of cooking including sifting flour (I don't even own a sifter!), washing in a strainer, cooking, and frying, and the little hanging rack for the utensils helps teach tidiness. The photo doesn't show it but there's even a matching apron-- and the colors are gender neutral. The only missing items are measuring spoons/cups and a timer, and I recommend getting cheap grown-up versions rather than the ones geared for kids (or just letting her use your own). My daughter is 5, has been using this set for nearly 2 years, and still pulls it out at least weekly. I bought the Melissa and Doug wooden veggie chopping set to play with these and even though the sizes are all off, my daughter hasn't noticed and the two sets combined have provided hours and hours of fun.
When I opened the box that this cookware came in, I was very dissapointed. All of the pieces were so small. I had hoped to set up my girls playhouse table and kitchen like a real one, but none of the play food that I bought would really fit into the pots and pans. Had I known how small this cookware was, I would have just bought cheap plastic pots and pans that would atleast have held the pretend food. My girls(ages 2 and 4) don't seem to notice, but I was quite unhappy with the set. It is very durable, but not practical for pretending.
I bought this cookware set for my 3 year old for Christmas. I bought this set because of the diversity of the items offered and the price seemed reasonable. My intention was for my daughter to use this with her toy stove/oven. We bought several of the Melissa & Doug wooden food sets thinking she could use them with the cookware. This cookware is unreasonably small. She can not fit any of her food into the pots and pans. Although the quality of most of the items were reasonable, the utensils are very flimsy (all but 2 of ours are already broken and we've had the cookware less than 2 months). Since my daughter can not fit her play food in this cookware she rarely uses it. I ended up buying a set with fewer pieces (one pot, one pan, and 3 utensils) from Pottery Barn. The pieces were sized so that she could use it with her wooden food and the quality was excellent (although it was a bit pricey). All told I would not recommend this product if you want your child to be able to put food into the pots and pans for 'cooking'.
This cookware is great. It is very well made, heavy gauge stainless steel. These are beautiful replica's of my own cookware, and meet all of our needs. My boys are ages 4 and 3 years old and love to cook with me and in their own kid-kitchen and in mine. I can teach them how, when, why to use the various pieces that fit perfectly in their curious and busy hands. Great buy. The potholder/apron/oven mit were not as well made, but very cute.
i love this pot and pan my kids would like this a lot to i like this to they going to have fun with this to.
