Step2 Best Chefs Kitchen Playset is a newer version of the play kitchen that my three Granddaughters owned. They spent hours playing with their kitchen and made many creative dishes on it. When their boy cousins came to play they were also very interested in whipping up tasty dishes.

What Others Think of the Step2 Best Chefs Kitchen Playset

Our girls loved their play kitchen and we highly recommend this. Others had this to say about the Step2 Best Chefs Kitchen Playset :

Great for my two boys who love to be chefs. Not girly at all. When it was received it was put together in about 1.5 hrs.
Pros: It is very sturdy and is good quality. Was a little surprised that it was smaller than expected but now I am happy about it not taking up too much space. I love how the stove top makes different noises when the pan or pot is placed on top. The pan sizzles, and the pot bubbles. This feature is my two yr olds favorite. My older son likes to use the window as a serving area for his customers. I like the simplicity of it but to others that may be a negative. Great item for the price!

Cons: The negative side is that the compartments are a bit on the small side to fit things inside, and not many bells and whistles if one is looking for that.

I wouldn’t hesitate to buy again. It is a great little kitchen.

My 3 year old LOVES it.

The assembly wasn’t as difficult as some of the other reviews suggested. I was nervous to purchase it just because other reviews stated that you need a drill, and I dont own a drill.
For those who have trouble with the fact that the holes are not predrilled (which is irritating) take the screw and a hammer and hammer the screw in just enough to have a small breakthrough in the plastic. From there the screen will go in easily.
It took me about 30 minutes to put together, it probably would’ve been quicker if my toddler wasn’t trying to “help” me. 😉

We were shopping for a while for a good play set for my son. The biggest problem a lot of sets have is flimsy pieces or pieces that can fit too easy in a mouth/throat. The first one we were given had such thin plastic that my son could tear off pieces of the fake food and would actually try to eat it. Those got immediately thrown out… This set up has pieces that are not swallowable and sturdy enough to not tear apart. Many of the toys are made of two pieces that can be separated but can also by snapped back together. No concerns of swallowing any pieces.
It also comes with a variety of toys and my son loves it. There’s also a light up and sound part for the pot and pan when it’s put on the stove. My son loves to make the sound happen. Thankfully it’s not too loud to annoy the whole house.
If you’re in the market for a play set, this is a good quality one.

This is the BEST kitchen! Our grandchildren loved it. Great for boys and girls. Our granddaughter still squeals with delight when she puts her pots on the cook top, and they make sizzling or boiling sounds. We did a lot of research before purchasing this as a Christmas gift, and we are happy we did. I would highly recommend this kitchen. It is great quality, a good size(not too big), and has great features. The assembly was easy as well, but we used a cordless screw gun.
Pro: My 2 year old son LOVES this play kitchen! He has spent more time playing with this toy than any other toy I’ve ever bought him. Was well worth the purchase.

Con: A hassel to put together if you don’t have the correct tools. The instructions aren’t the greatest. You will need a power drill since the plastic is very thick and there are no premade holes for the large screws to hold the big pieces together, you will have to drill your own. You’ll also need a long, skinny screw driver to unscrew the tiny screws in the battery operated stove part, regular drivers won’t fit in the holes. Thankfully my husband had all of these tools, otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to put it together without them.

Otherwise, great purchase!

I bought this for my 15 month old son and he loves it! It’s super cute, gender neutral, has some nice features, and the price is right.

Pros: The stove makes noise and lights up when you put a pan on it. The knobs click when you turn them. The oven and fridge open up. It comes with a lot of cute accessories, including a recycling bin which I think is awesome. And it came a few days early!

Cons: Like other reviewers have said, it is kind of a pain that none of the holes are pre-drilled. Most of them went in pretty easily for me (I used a hammer to make the initial hole and then screwed them in) but there were a few that we re tough. Not a big deal to me, because besides that it was very simple to setup.

Also, make sure you read the dimensions so you know what size to expect. This is the perfect size for a toddler, but if I had bought this for an older child I may have been disappointed.
