Hold the Kiddies Food Kutter safety knife in either your left or right hand. Place the vegetable on the chopping board and hold it in place firmly with the other hand. Then use a sawing action to cut the vegetable. Start the sawing action with soft fruit and vegetables like apple and zucchini to build up confidence and independence, then introduce carrots and harder vegetables. Watch our demonstration video here. Of course, adult supervision is still required.

Hold the peeler in either your left or right hand. Place the vegetable on the chopping board and hold it in place firmly with the other hand. With the index finger on the moulded fingerprint, slide the peeler down the carrot or vegetable slowly, removing the outer skin. Only light pressure is required. The peel should come off in a long ribbon. If it doesn’t, simply change the angle of the peeler. Watch our demonstration video here. Of course, adult supervision is still required.

Fast forward to 2021 and we are now pleased to announce the Kiddies Food Kutter is now being Manufactured in Melbourne alongside our Safety Food Peeler. It has also been certified Australian Made & Owned. Supporting our Australian workers and created jobs within our Country.

Of course, every child is different, and their skill and competencies differ. But as a guide, the Kiddies Food Kutter we suggest 2 years onwards, and the Safety Food Peeler is best for around 3 years onwards. As soon as they show an interest, it is great to encourage them.

It is made up of a non-toxic, stainless steel blade with truly rounded teeth, tumbled in stone, ensuring no sharp edges. The child-size handle designed to fit your child’s’ hand is BPA Free sturdy plastic. The Kutter is dishwasher safe.

Yes, it will cut all vegetables, raw or cooked. The Kiddies Food Kutter was actually invented to carve pumpkins for Halloween Jack ‘O Lanterns! We knew if it was strong enough to cope with pumpkin it could cut everything!

It is able to do this by using a sawing action rather than relying on sharp teeth or blades, making it safe for your budding junior masterchefs to use when helping you in the kitchen, preparing lunch or dinner (or for them to use at the dinner table). It is a thicker blade not a thin sharp blade, so if the child slips, it will not slice their fingers.

Yes, they certainly will, as little pressure is required with both the Kiddies Food Kutter & the Safety Food Peeler. My Mother (at 86 years of age) actually trialled the Safety Food Peeler it with us initially, when we were designing it and the cavity tool template was adjusted accordingly.

Yes, 40% of our sales are specifically for this demographic. We supply Minda Inc, Yooralla, and various Disability Schools and Institutions on a regular basis Australia wide. They also assist carers.

Yes, the Kiddies Food Kutter will cut through all cooked meat and vegetables on the dinner plate.

No, because it is not sharp in the first place!

No, because it is bladeless. It is the only bladeless peeler in the world!

Yes, these products involve the child in the actual task whilst having fun, so they may be more inclined to touch and try the food they have been involved in preparing.

Yes, we have found that our products help take the stress from the teachers, and enables them to broaden the children’s skills. This results in a wider variety of competence, interest and independence. All children can learn at their own pace, no matter what their ability is.
