To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Better described as sharpened corrugated metal, this is no knife. The edges of the metal are frayed and rough, leading me to believe bits of metal would flake off into any food I cut with this. The body of the knife is a cheap plastic shell that traps lots of water when cleaning it.
Would not recommend, especially not for cutting children's food.
My son started using this when he was about 17 months old and he learned right away to keep one hand back when using it. He loves helping out in the kitchen and helping to prepare his own good. He has used it to cut watermelon, bananas, cooked carrots, and a few other things. Perfect size for his little hands!!
I bought this product for my 4 year old because she likes to help me prep for dinner. It was recommended by someone. I love it because it’s safe and I don’t have to worry about cutting any fingers. It was sharp enough to cut peppers, apples (All we have tried so far). I definitely recommend for anyone with a little one who’s interested in helping with cooking.
It's really sharp, which is a plus considering that I have no idea how I'm going to sharpen it.
The angle makes it hard to get even pieces every time and makes it impossible to find a nice rhythm with the cut.
So simple food prep tasks turn into ridiculously arduous crafting sessions where my fingers are constantly in danger.
I bought this to help teach my six year old how to chop veggies but I will not be letting her use it. Because the weird angle and because the design seemed like a great idea before, now seems entirely impractical for the purpose I purchased it for.
In trying to create a kid-friendly Montessori style kitchen-environment for my tot, I bought this based on the "How We Montessori" suggestion. I love it and feel good about my two year old using it. She can hold it easily and finds joy in truly being able to chop things herself. Although she has not got precision down, it allows her to comfortably hold and use without fear of nipping her fingers (within reason...still takes some guidance).
I have been researching the Montessori method to use with my strong-willed three year old. She is my fourth and learns in a different, more hands-on way than my other children. She has always enjoyed helping me in the kitchen, so I thought this would be a perfect starting point. It is easy to wash clean, as well! We have used the Joie chopper for cheese, apples, hotdogs, cucumbers, hard-boiled eggs, etc! It is so simple to use, all my others enjoy using it as well. I have heard, also, that the crinkle-cut really works great for child-led weaning -- my baby is not quite ready for finger-foods, but this will be a useful tool when he is!
I purchased the Joie Wavy Chopper to make pickles. It works great.... It is easy to handle and is very sharp... therefore I would NOT recommend this for children to use, without close adult supervision. It does appear larger than it is in the photo... but it is perfect for what I need. The blade height is 40mm at the short end and 50mm at the tall end....and the blade measures 75mm across . I cut up 2 lbs of Kirby cucumbers with it and it gave professional results. It seems to be made well and I believe it will last awhile... and the price was right ! I Love it !
These are perfect for little hands to help out in the kitchen. Great for the Montassori household or any parent who want to let their children help in the kitchen. You'd be surprised what the little ones do if you just show them how: I let my little one chop vegetables, fruit, sandwiches, etc. and she's just turned 2.5. She peels hard boiled eggs, chops lettuce for tacos, measure and pour, mixes, etc. She loves to cook and help in the kitchen and this let's her be a part of the process.
