Kids in the Kitchen
Adult supervision is always recommended when children are using any kitchen appliance.
For younger children (ages 6-12), it’s recommended that an adult is always watching.
Explain to the kids the concept of sous chef (an assistant chef) and how vital they are in restaurants and that they can be your sous chef in the home kitchen, listening to your instructions and making sure the meal is prepared properly and safely.
Always remember to unplug appliances when they are not in use so your child cannot accidentally turn them on. Don’t allow electrical cords to dangle where your child can reach and tug on them, possibly pulling a heavy appliance down on themselves.
