COOKING FOR ALL EVERYONE'S A CHEF COOL TO BE IN KITCHEN Janita Singh Kuhn Rikon's new Kinder Kitchen range features colourful utensils, including icing pens and cake decorating sets. REALITY cooking shows such as Masterchef and My Kitchen Rules are prompting more men to enter the mix in the kitchen. And the ''foodie kids phenomenon'' is also being attributed to successful tele- vision cooking shows. Consequently, there has been a nationwide rush on child-sized and child- friendly kitchen utensils to encourage children in the kitchen. Similarly, designers are targeting men with more masculine kitchen ap- pliances. Appliance company Smeg Australia says men have no problem taking charge in the kitchen. Smeg national marketing manager Jimmy Kalotheos says men have a preference for the semi-industrial style upright cookers as well as many of the labour-saving features now available in more sophisticated ap- pliances. ''Our research has shown that men are favouring larger upright cookers with about six burners and a large capacity oven, prefer- ably with a rotisserie func- tion,'' Mr Kalotheos said. ''The other factor men tend to insist on is the pyrolysis technology whereby the interior of the oven is virtually self- cleaning.'' Switzerland's Kuhn Ri- kon has developed a child- specific range of kitchen accessories. Kinder Kitchen is a range of colourful quirky utensils, including an icing pen and cookie and cake decorating sets. The Bird's Eye Open Spoon, sha- ped like a long-necked bird, features a ''beak'' that acts as a bowl scraper while the ''eye'' makes mixing easier. Duck Snippers look like a duck's beak and will cut vegetables but not fingers, while the Crocodile Jaw Tongs will pick up hot food. Cookie and sandwich cut- ters feature star, heart and flower shapes.
