"Le Petit Chef" set is ideal for teaching children how to cook in safety. This set includes a round-tipped blade made of stainless steel, perfect for cutting & slicing thinly. The learning ring on the handle helps position the fingers correctly & prevents the hand from slipping onto the blade. The peeler has a stainless steel blade & a learning ring as well, which will help position the fingers correctly for easy peeling by pulling. The set also includes a plastic finger guard to protect the hand holding the food to be cut. The "claw" position on the guard can be adapted, with the first two phalanges bent & the thumb & the little finger holding the food - just like the leading chefs! These items are sharp & young users should be supervised! The handsome handles are made of genuine Beechwood & are varnished for a most beautiful look. A great first kitchen gift for children.
*Important! Care for your stainless steel knives!*
The knife blade is made of stainless steel & will not rust, although try to avoid leaving the knife in moist & damp environments for too long, and the wood may expand or contract too if the knife is left out in extreme weather conditions for an amount of time. It is also a good idea to try & wipe the blade dry after each use.
