cooking with kids is a lovely thing, but life is gets much easier if your kids can actually reach the worktop. yes standing on a chair will do the trick but it's really nice if you can live with a step in your kitchen. this plywood and metal step not only looks great, but because it's not actually designed specifically for kids it looks refreshingly unchildlike and will prove useful well beyond your child rearing years.
