Kitchen Playsets

Updated on April 28, 2013

Kitchen Playsets

Kitchen playsets provide wonderful props for imaginative and pretend play for your children. A special toy kitchen offers a safe environment for a child to immitate the adult cooks in the family without the fear of burns, scalds, cuts, broken glass or mess. Your child can learn measuring, colors, counting, vocabulary, basic food preparation, cooking techniques, nutrition and safety all while having fun!

One of the most popular kitchen playsets on Amazon.com is the large KidKraft Kitchen Playset.

One of the best kitchen playsets I've seen

Here's why

* It contains all the essentials - refrigerator, freezer, oven and microwave

* All the doors open and close

* You can see through the oven and microwave doors to check on what's cooking

* The stove top has realistic, raised burners

* The knobs on the stove really turn

* The clock has movable hands

* The kitchen sink can be removed for cleaning

* Shelving above and below the sink to store all the accessories

* Very sturdy

* One of the biggest kitchen playsets available, large enough for an older child or for several children to play with at once: 42"L x 16"W x 42"H.

The downside of this kitchen payset

* Be prepared to set aside several hours to put this kidkraft kitchen playset together because it is so big and so heavy.

* There are no sound effects (but this will allow for your child to make her own sound effects and thus allow for more creativity)

* It is quite big, so you will need a decent space to set it up.

Customer Reviews of the KidKraft Large Kitchen Playsets

Highlights from some of the many 5 star reviews on Amazon

This was by far one of the best toy investments we've ever made. It gets played with by every kid who comes in our door- no matter what age or gender.

J. Munson

I love that it has the raised burners on the stove instead of the flat burners. The kithcen faucet is very cute and realistic and there is PLENTY of storage/play room. I love that there are no noises from the buttons - such a great opportunity for learning and imaginative play.

Alexa H. Mcdonald "frequent amazon shopper!"

The girls are truly engaged in imaginative and creative play. Even the girls' boy cousins enjoy it very much! It is fun play for all kids. I would highly recommend this excellent kitchen set.

Mom in Virginia

We decided to by this for our 4 year old for her birthday after researching all the play kitchens on the market today. We decided on this one because it is the biggest kitchen available and gives her plenty of time to play with it before out growing it. ... If you decide on this kitchen your child will love it.

P. Plezia "God's Girl"

My daughter loves this kitchen! I love this kitchen! :) It's very sturdy and just plain fun to play with. Worth every penny!

Not all kitchen playsets come in pink. After all, pink is not everyone's favorite color - particularly for boys. So here are some different kitchen sets, some with pink, some without.

      Those kitchen sets look really neat. Too bad my daughter is too old to play with it. Great lens.

      I love this and all the accessories that go with it. You'd obviously need somewhere to put it though. Not easily moved but so realistic. Kids would think they were really in the kitchen. Great lens.

      This is just the color of kitchen that my oldest would have loved. Pinks and pastels.

      My daughter loved her toy kitchen (the sons did, too, but will probably never admit it)! This one looks extra special than the set we have. If only my baby were a baby still ...
