Attire for little chefs

Arguably, one of the most important ingredients for any serious chef is their attire. For little chefs, like our Chef Koochooloo, that includes aprons, oven mitts, and a chef hat to top off the look.

Though, the options are endless for big chefs, little chefs have a harder time finding attire that is suited for them.  We were able to identify some of the best apparel out there for any budding chef!

  1. Happy Chef Kids CookCool

Happy Chef has a wide array of standard chef apparel suitable for young chefs. Their selection is high quality and resembles what you might see a professional chef wear. Another great thing about their lineup is that it is customizable. However, even though the styles are customizable their sizing options are limited.


  1. Chef Works Junior Chef Collection

Like Happy Chef, Chef Works has a great starter line for someone looking for traditional and premium culinary attire. Though their styles are not customizable, they have more color and design options. They also gear their clothing for children of all ages.


  1. Chef Wear – Pint Size

Chef Wear is a relatively well-known apparel supplier but disappointingly their “Pint Size” line only featured one apron. Despite this lack of availability, the apron came in multiple fun colors and patterns. These fashionable patterns really made them stand out and on top of that, custom embroidery was an option as well.

  1. Growing Cooks

Conversely, Growing Cooks was the supplier that had the greatest availability for young chefs. Not only did they have clothing, their store included kid-sized cooking tools and fun sets. Because of their variety, they had something in store for everyone, from disposable aprons, to cute customizable ones. Their sets also seemed like a great option for little chefs!

After searching for the right product, and not being quite happy with the selections we saw, we decided to create our own  line for Chef Koochoolool! What do you think? How much would you pay for this locally hand made apron? If we receive positive feedback from you, we will hire our first official employee and have her focus on making more of these adorable options!
