I love to cook, write, and eat. And I really love to share this information with the world. I started when I realized the amount of misinformation out there in regard to cooking and food. So I decided to start gathering up everything I could, from recipes to cooking tips to restaurant reviews, to create a resource that people would actually use and enjoy. I think it's important to be passionate about food and enjoy cooking it and eating it. This is my way of sharing all that knowledge with you.

I bought the $169 Guidecraft Classic Kitchen Helper Stool because my 1-year-antique daughter continually desires to see what I’m doing. This offers her a front-row seat in the kitchen, so I can sincerely prepare meals.

It’s easy to set up, takes 10 minutes, and is smooth to fold away when no longer in use.

The design could be robust, and the adjustable tiers and removable mesh protector make this a product to grow with her until she attains the kitchen counter.

Kitchen stool

I have so many fond recollections of status on a chair and helping my mother and father in the kitchen as a kid. Even before I had my daughter, Ellie, I’d pictured baking vacation cookies and making homemade pasta sauce with my youngsters supporting me in the kitchen.

But those images always involved many older youngsters who could assist in the kitchen. I did not picture a younger toddler standing on the kitchen counter with me, even though Ellie reputedly has a specific photo in her head.

She likes to study and is constantly curious about what I’m doing, so if I leave her to play on the floor while I’m cooking or baking, she’s no longer a delighted camper. She’s best twelve months, so having her stand on a chair through the counter is now unsafe.

Enter the Guidecraft Kitchen Helper. It’s an enclosed adjustable kitchen stool that accurately puts Ellie right at the counter with me, and although it’s $169, it’s been a total recreation changer and is worth the price.

Before I had the Kitchen Helper, I’d try to cook dinner meals with one hand even as I held Ellie within the different. This wasn’t easy or secure, specifically after I became close to the range or had to use a knife. Now, she receives to look at everything I’m doing even as I have both hands free, and they are happy and entertained the complete time.

The complete product is fabricated from robust wood. The stool folds up immediately and easily while you want to shop it and takes less than a minute to unfold and set up when you’re equipped to use it. If I protect Ellie inside the different, I may even set it up with one hand.

The stool comes with a non-slip mat for kids to stand on simultaneously inside the seat, and a Kitchen Helper Keeper, a mesh overlaying for the open facet of the heart in which kids would step in or out. Once Ellie gets big enough, we’ll take this off to climb in and out on her own, but for now, it allows hold her secure and at ease in the stool.

The Kitchen Helper comes in five distinctive colors to select the only one that best suits your kitchen. We chose white. I like the layout because it looks greater like a bit of furnishings than a child’s object or toy, but it still has a few lovely features that might hold youngsters entertained, like shape cutouts on the sides (greater on that later), a touch chalkboard on one aspect, and a touch whiteboard on the alternative aspect. Since Ellie remains so younger, she hasn’t used these yet. However, I could see them laugh for her to play with or write the dinner menu when she gets older.

For now, Ellie loves looking at me from the stool while playing with bowls and measuring cups. I also often use the chair to feed her a little appetizer if she gets hungry, even as I’m cooking dinner. I like that I can supervise her even as she’s consuming as an alternative to having her run away while I’m in the kitchen.

This stool has already made getting ready meals so much less worrying, and I can tell that Ellie loves it too, due to the fact if I begin cooking without her within the Kitchen Helper, she’ll stroll over to it and point at it.
