KidKraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen
Age 3+ Years
We thought we would start our best play kitchens list with something pretty spectacular and spectacular is certainly the best way to describe the Uptown Espresso Kitchen.
This is a really modern looking kitchen that has everything a child needs. There’s a pretend sink, microwave, oven, fridge and a ton of little nooks and crannies that they can use as well. We are sure there will be a few parents wondering why their child has a better kitchen than they do!
This is very well made and will give them plenty years of use. The recommended age of this kitchen is 3 and up and we can see this being something that the kids enjoy playing with for many years.
Little Tikes Super Chef Kitchen
Age 3+ Years
We are big fans of products from Little Tikes and their Super Chef Kitchen really is fantastic. As this is from Little Tikes you know it’s a durable and long lasting play kitchen that can take a real beating. Guaranteed to last for many years.
The kitchen has a very smart design and it has things like a little sink, coffee machine, oven, microwave and plenty of surface space to making some epic meals for their little friends. We really like how this play kitchen has a ton of fun features, but does not take up a whole lot of space.
The Little Tikes kitchen also comes with plenty of accessories such as knives, forks, plates and a whole bunch of other fun items.
The recommended age for this play kitchen is 3 and up and due to the materials it’s made of, we see this lasting them a very long time.
Melissa & Doug Chef’s Kitchen
Age 3-8 Years
Next on our list of best play kitchens is the Melissa & Doug Chef’s Kitchen that has a very modern design to it. With its fridge with ice maker, microwave oven and high quality oven it’s the kind of kitchen that you could imagine being in a Manhattan apartment.
This comes with a whole range of pots, pans and other things they would need for making a great meal for any friends that come over. One thing we have to give special attention to is the ice maker on the fridge which actually shoots out plastic ice cubes!
This is aimed at kids who are aged 3 and up. This play kitchen is perfect for boys and girls as it comes in pink or black.
2-Piece Retro Kitchen by KidKraft
Age 3+ years
We really like the 2-Piece Retro Kitchen by KidKraft and think that the way the fridge is separate from the rest of the kitchen, is actually pretty cool.
The KidKraft gives you everything you would get with a complete play kitchen. But as this is in two parts it means you could fit this into more snug areas like even a child’s playhouse or play tent. A play kitchen in a playhouse….that would be the pinnacle of awesomeness for a child!
This kitchen comes with a sink, dishwasher, oven and plenty of fun little extras for them to play house with. We love the retro design that this play kitchen has and are certain that kids aged 3 and up are going to have many years of fun with this.
Deluxe Custom Kitchen by American Plastic Toys
Next on our list of best play kitchens we have one of the most affordable play kitchens that we have looked at. The Deluxe Custom Kitchen by American Plastic Toys has a really modern look.
One of the things that we and no doubt you as a parent will love about it is that it’s not overly large like some other play kitchens. This is a complete play kitchen that has a stove with realistic lights and cooking sounds. A fridge with an ice maker, a sink, microwave and lots of storage for all the pots, pans, plates and other accessories that come with this.
The recommended age for this kitchen is 3 and up. As this is a durable play kitchen made with thick and strong plastic, we can see your child getting many years of use and playtime fun out of this.
LifeStyle Custom Kitchen Playset by Step2
Age 2-6 years
The LifeStyle Custom Kitchen Playset by Step2 is one of the classiest looking play kitchens that is on this list. We are sure a few of you parents will be wondering why your child is making pretend pasta on an awesome looking fake granite work top when you are slaving away on an old work top…lol!
The granite top and the wooden effect really do give this play kitchen a lot of personality. Thanks to the oven, fridge, drinks machine, microwave, recycle bin and the sink. They will be able to make a fantastic feast for all their little friends and then be able to clean the dishes after.
This kitchen also comes with a great accessory kit that includes kitchen items like pots and pans, but also some plastic food to play with.
Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen by Fisher-Price
Age 6 months – 3 years
If there was an award for most adorable kitchen on this best play kitchens list then the Laugh & Learn Learning Kitchen by Fisher-Price would certainly be a contender to win it!
We love this cute little kitchen which is perfect for kids as young as 6 months. This is a much smaller play kitchen than the rest of the ones on this list, but it still offers a lot of fun. Your child will love opening the door of the fridge and making the lights go on and the sound go off!
This kitchen plays songs, makes lots of sounds and even has some fun sorting and learning games for them to do. With a little stove, sink, oven and fridge this little kitchen is sure to provide a lot of fun and laughs for your child. Even if by the end of the third day the songs this thing plays have driven you insane, you will love watching your kid play with this.
Little Chef Wooden Toy Play Kitchen by Teamson Kids
Age 3+ years
The Little Chef Wooden Toy Play Kitchen is one of the smartest looking play kitchens that we have seen. The first thing that captures your attention is the fact that this is made from wood and not plastic like most other play kitchens tend to be.
This makes this a very high quality play kitchen that features a fridge, stove, oven, sink, microwave and lots of areas for storage. This really is a great play kitchen that is suitable for kids as young as 3 and perfect if you’re looking for a kitchen that’s not made of plastic.
Get Out n’ Grill Kitchen Set by Little Tikes
Age 3+ years
Now this is really cool! We can just imagine a bunch of kids huddled around this all with fake cans of soda while one of them is flipping the plastic burgers on the Grill!
The Get Out n’ Grill Kitchen is just awesome. We love the brick design and the way it looks like a real grill that you would use on a weekend out in the backyard.
On the top is the main grill area that actually has two grills and a cover to keep it nice and clean. They can be frying up a hamburger on one grill while looking after a hotdog on the other. There is a sink, a side burner and even a large cupboard. Which by the way serves as a storage area for you to put all the accessories in once play time is over.
Speaking of accessories this one comes with all your child will need to host an epic cookout. This play kitchen is for kids aged 3 and up and ideal if you want something that is a little bit different.
Grand Walk-in Kitchen and Grill by Step2 – Best Play Kitchens
Age 2-8 Years
For the last entry on our best play kitchens list we have gone for something truly amazing and that is the Grand Walk-in Kitchen and Grill. This thing is huge and we mean that in a good way. This really is a walk in kitchen and it has features on three sides.
On one side you have the grill and a cupboard for general storage. At the front of the play kitchen there’s a serving area which will come in handy when it is time to make their little friends dinner. Cherry on the pie is an area that’s literally stacked with features. Here they will find a sink, fridge, oven, microwave and just a ton of storage to make use of.
Many of the things in this kitchen are electronic so the oven, grill and little phone all make realistic sounds. This play kitchen also comes with an accessory set that has over 100 pieces!
This kitchen is for children aged 2 and up. It may be one of the more expensive play kitchen, but it is also one of the most epic and impressive ones.
