Vegetable Cutter for Kids

This vegetable or salad cutter is designed to bring children into the kitchen and help their parents prepare meals. The handle mimics the aesthetic of a toy steering wheel and requires two hands to function.

 
 

Process

The vegetable cutter prototype was carved out of blue foam, covered with aqua-resin, and then painted with acrylic paint. The aqua-resin fills in the blue foam and creates a surface suitable for painting. Finally, aluminum sheet metal was cut to size with a jeweler's saw and wedged into the handle.
