You guys may not remember this, but when my older son was a little tyke I posted all kinds of pictures of the two of us cooking and baking together, with his patient little self sitting nicely atop the counters and watching the stand mixer whirl. I worried that it might seem that my boy was in an unsafe situation, although I had a hand on him at all times. And when it came to opening and shutting the oven door or cooking on the stovetop my older, more cautious son stayed away when asked – the first time.
Let’s just say that my sweet second boy is giving me a run for my money (see above photo) 🙂
See, he’s incredibly curious about everything and scared of nothing, two traits that I think will likely serve him well in the future if we can teach him how to steward them well. However, at 20 months old these little gifts have led to numerous cuts and scrapes, bumps and bruises, and tears. He’s even burned him self one time on the brakes on the car…I had no idea he could reach them through the wheel!
One thing that WILL keep us a little safer during our kitchen adventures from now on though? Potsafe!
Now before you guys without kids check out, this is actually an incredibly helpful tool for a large number of others: the elderly, infirm, on boats, in RVs (or any kind of travel), etc. In my house it’s used to keep little hands from pulling or knocking pots off the stove, but that’s not the only use!
As my boys get older and even more curious in the kitchen I look forward to fostering their curiosity and creativity in any way I safely can, and it feels good to know that we can actually do some real cooking together. They love trying new things, and with this cooler weather we are all about making more soups, stews and pasta dishes. The Potsafe works perfectly for these dishes!
If you’re thinking you could use a great new kitchen tool that works, keeps cooking fun and makes it even safer? I couldn’t agree more! It’s easy to configure a setup for whatever your needs are, and knowing that you and your loved ones are safer it so worth the peace of mind. I hope you guys enjoy this amazing kitchen tool as much as we have!
