Vegetable Crinkle Cutter

In stock

I used these Vegetable Crinkle Cutters for years in my kindergarten class on "Soup Day." The children would help chop vegetables for our soup with them. Perfectly sized for preschool hands, these have no sharp edges so there is no risk of cutting oneself.

Better yet is the fun wavy design that is added to carrots, potatoes, zucchini or whatever other yummy veggies you decide to add to your soup!

Helps teach children the skills necessary to later use a knife. 

Stainless steel with wood handle

6¾ " long

Hand wash with mild soap

Ages 3 and up


More About This Product

It’s “Soup Day,” in my Waldorf kindergarten class. My assistant and I arrived early to don our aprons and prepare for the day. A basin full of water has been set on the table. Vegetable scrub brushes lay nearby. A small wooden cutting board, wooden bowl and “crinkle cutter” have been set in front of each chair.

At 8:15, the children begin to arrive, each one proudly carrying a vegetable to add to our “stone soup.” Lucy brings a potato, Aidan brings a carrot. Frances brings broccoli, and Max a beet. It takes a village to make stone soup!

Each child finds her symbol above her hook – it might be a bunny, an apple, the moon, or a squirrel. She hangs up her coat, takes off her outdoor shoes and puts on the soft pair of slippers that is kept at school.

Children then put on a small apron and come to the table where I am seated to help chop vegetables. The conversation is lively as we chop. I begin to sing, “Stone soup, stone soup, cook a pot of stone soup,” as we work.

They love to help by Erin (on 8/25/13)
"My kids are so happy to have their own "knives" to help cut up veggies for dinner. They also work well for fruits and some cheeses. I had to buy one for each: my toddler and pre-schooler. I may need another when their baby sister gets bigger. Having child size tools is a great way to include your son or daughter in the kitchen "
Perfect for the little kitchen helper! by The kitchen helper's mom (on 10/5/12)
"It really does cut fruit and vegetables. My son loves to help prepare dinner and because of this little gem, we don't have a single dinner without some use of onions, peppers, mushrooms, or garlic. That's "his" job and he proudly eats the veggies he helped prepare. Never had to worry about cuts or scrapes either."
