COOKING FOR ALL BUDDING CHEFS JOIN MIX MORE TRY LUCK IN THE 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 phenom- enon'' is being attributed to suc- cessful television cooking shows. Consequently, there has been a nationwide rush on child-sized and child-friendly kitchen uten- sils to encourage kids in the kitchen. Similarly, designers are targeting men with more mascu- line kitchen appliances. Appliance company Smeg Aust- ralia says men have no problem taking charge in the kitchen, and therefore take a more active role in the selection of appliances. Smeg national marketing man- ager 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 appliances. ''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 function,'' Mr Kalotheos said. ''The other factor men tend to insist on is the pyrolysis tech- nology whereby the interior of the oven is virtually self-cleaning.'' Switzerland's Kuhn Rikon has developed a child-specific range of kitchen accessories. Kinder Kitchen is a range of colourfully quirky utensils, including an icing pen and cookie and cake decorat- ing sets. The Bird's Eye Open Spoon, shaped 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. Meanwhile, cookie and sand- wich cutters are shaped as stars, hearts and flowers.
