Comments about Step2 Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen™:

We got this for our daughter this past Christmas. She loves it! I am happy with the sturdiness and appearance. It has a nice amount of storage space. The assembly was not a quick and easy process. I also think it would be nice if the microwave and coffee maker made sounds. The current sounds are very realistic, and I think it would be neat if there were more.

Comments about Step2 Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen™:

So my husband put this together on Christmas Eve. It wasn't the easiest thing to put together, but I think you should expect that from this sort of toy. It's going to take some time but it was pretty easy to put together.

I love how it looks. We purchased other food and dishes to go along with it so my daughter has more to play with. She loves it and it keeps her entertained for hours.

However.. AFTER we put it together we realized that the beeping oven doesn't work. Plus it is for Christmas and had to have it as it was her main present. So we call Toys R Us and our options were to take it apart and bring it to the store. AND THEN put it all back together again. Or call Step 2 and get the non working part. After being on hold for 20 minutes I finally placed the order for the oven part. A week later I got the part. They sent me the wrong part! So I had to call again.. Wait for 15 minutes. The lady was very RUDE. And now I have to wait even longer to get the oven to work. Hopefully this time the problem is solved.

Comments about Step2 Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen™:

I am impressed by the look of the kitchen and the sound associated with some of the parts. My 2 1/2 year old son is going to love the sounds of the stove, oven and phone. The coffee pods are fantastic. I love that this is a modern kitchen. The pretend food parts are also durable for my toddler. I think he can learn a lot and have fun at the same time. That's exactly what you want from toys at this age. My only complaints involve the oven and the instructions. The oven sticks and nearly requires adult force to open it and close it. I see that others have complained about this so I'm unsure why this design flaw hasn't been corrected. The instructions are odd. It feels like a bit of a scavenger hunt. I kept having to hunt for the next numbered instruction. I really had to use the picture on the box to help me piece the parts and the decals together.

Comments about Step2 Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen™:

My son loves this kitchen! We got it for him as a gift this past holiday. We have a coffee pot similar to the one in this kitchen that he was scared of (he's two), and now that he has one like us, he's fine with it. He loves the twistable S&P shakers, phone, and noise the stove top makes. He puts things in the oven and "cooks" them by hitting the buttons. I do wish the microwave made some sounds like the oven does. That would make it absolutely perfect. My dog chewed up a few of the coffee pods, and other items, but I called Step2 and they were great about sending me replacement parts- and at a super reasonable price! I'd recommend this for otheres too.

    Comments about Step2 Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen™:

    My daughter loves this kitchen. She plays with it every day. My husband didn't find any difficulty assembling. I like all of the things included with this kitchen. You do not need to buy any additional play food, as more would not add to the enjoyment of the kitchen. My 1 yr old daughter loves her kitchen. I'm glad we got the neutral color, as the pink is really pink. She particularly likes the phone and the twistable salt & pepper shakers. I don't give it 5 stars because I think the space they used for a recycling bin would have been better as shelves or a cupboard (although I very much like the idea of a recycling bin!). Also, the dishes do not stay in the dish cupboard at the top. Additionally, the kitchen is rather tall. My daughter will grow into it, but for the moment has to stand on tip toe to reach the upper cupboards. I do not find the construction flimsy, and think this kitchen was a great value.

    Does the microwave on this model have electronic features?
    sara b on Nov 4, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: We recently purchased this for our daughter on Christmas. It was missing the phone, coffee maker and pot, beeping oven, bubbling stove top, pots, faucets and all handles. We tried returning it for an identical kitchen but Toys R Us was out of stock. They told us we could contact you for missing pieces if we wished to keep the kitchen. How can we get these missing items for our daughter?
    I got this kitchen for my daughter on Christmas. On the packaging it shows that it makes a boiling sound and a sizzling sound. The plastic deep pan has a ridge on the bottom that aligns with the button on the stove eye, when the deep pan is set on the eye, it depresses the button and the boiling sound is heard. Now, there is another button on the eye that lines up with the frying pan when it is set upon the eye. But when that button is pushes nothing happens. Is there suppose to be a sizzling sound? Is the stove eye defective? Or is the packaging incorrect?
    Jay C on Dec 26, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, the stove top burner should make a sizzling noise when the frying pan is placed on top of it. Please call our Customer Service Department at 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you with a replacement stove top burner.
    What food is included? I wish there was a picture!
    britni c on Nov 3, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: The Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen comes with a 10 piece play food set. To view the food that comes with this kitchen, please follow this link http://images.step2.com/media/pdfs/837300_info.pdf
    what's the high of the countertops?
    ericka h on Oct 23, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: The lower counter top is 19" high. The upper counter top is 22.5" high.
    Can you get a different oven door for this? It's much different than the other kitchens...
    Wendi G on Jul 25, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: We do not offer any additional styles of oven doors for the Lil' Chef's Gourmet Kitchen at this time.
    the stove top doesnt function (ie., bubbling stove doesnt make any noise). New batteries were placed. Please advise?
    thanks
    A shopper on Feb 23, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Please call our Customer Service Department toll free 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you with this request.
    We set this up for my daughter yesterday and all the electronic parts work, but the phone is so quiet you can't really hear it at all. The oven and stove are both loud and you can clearly hear them. We tried several different batteries to see if it would help the phone but Nothing made it any louder. Should the phone be louder?
    A shopper on Jan 1, 2014
    BEST ANSWER: Please call our Customer Service department at 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to send you a replacement phone.
    I purchased this product for my kids for Christmas. The oven door will not stay closed. This item was installed by the factory, not my assembly. Should I return it? It is difficult to use with the oven door always open, the kids aren't able to stand close to the kitchen.
    Kyle B on Dec 26, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: Please call toll free 1-800-347-8372 Monday - Friday, from 8-5 ET and we will be happy to assist you with this inquiry.
    Do you have a PDF link for Assembly Instructions?
    A shopper on Dec 13, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: Here is a link to the instructions for this play kitchen:
    http://images.step2.com/media/pdfs/837300_assembly.pdf
    What is the recommended age for this product? My daughter is 17 months old but in the 94th percentile for height, so I think anything 2+ should be ok for her.
    A shopper on Nov 26, 2013
    BEST ANSWER: This play kitchen is recommended for ages 2 and up.
    The hands on the clock will not stay as put -- they both just fall to the 6. I tried pushing the black pin in further, but it's in as far as it will go. It doesn't seem that it's supposed to be this way. Is there something I can do to fix it?
