Best Overall KidKraft Kitchen: KidKraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen
I am a huge fan of the KidKraft Uptown Espresso Kitchen set, and this is the most highly rated kitchen set from KidKraft on most shopping websites (as of 2020 some shopping websites have over 5,000 positive reviews listed out for this item)! It scores very high marks for the modern look and color scheme!
It is 43 x 18 x 41 inches, which is large enough for multiple children to play with it at the same time. It has a large rectangular sink that can be removed relatively easy, it has four oven burners with multiple knobs, as well as a freezer, refrigerator, microwave, oven, and dishwasher. It even has a towel rack on the side. All the knobs twist and turn and make fun noises.
The countertop has a unique design to it, and all the little details have been planned out with this set. There is a chalkboard on the freezer, little hanging pegs on the backdrop, storage space above the sink, and even a cordless phone space.
The set is very heavy, probably right around 70 pounds. It does come with an anchor set to attach to the wall to prevent accidental falling. The manufacturer age recommendation is 36 months to 15 years. Play food does not come with it, so that will need to be bought separately and plan on 3 hours or more for assembly time.
The big selling points with this kitchen set is its unique design, large size, great functionality, and attention to detail. It is priced great and an easy choice for the best overall KidKraft Kitchen set!
Best Vintage KidKraft Kitchen: The KidKraft Vintage Play Kitchen
The Kitchen set that we picked out for our sons was the Red KidKraft Vintage Kitchen. We have absolutely loved it, and it has held up pretty well even with two young boys beating it up over the years! If you want to read more about our experience with this product, check out this review: The KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Reviewed.
We choose the vintage style because of its unique and classic look. It comes in five different color options, including white, blue, pink, red, and white with gold accents. No matter what option you pick, it will be 33 x 13 x 35 inches in size. It is large enough for two children to play with.
It has a microwave, refrigerator, freezer, storage cabinet, and oven that has doors that open and close. It also has an easy to use/remove sink space and two large oven burners. There are racks in both the refrigerator and oven that can be removed.
There is little piece underneath the microwave that you can rotate to spin the plate inside the microwave that my kids seem to love to play with. The oven knobs click and turn, and it also comes with a cordless phone (which I was amazed my kids knew what it was since we don’t have anything but cellphones in our house).
It weighs about 50 pounds, and we do recommend using the anchor kit because we did have one push over when we didn’t have it attached.
The price will vary based on the color scheme – and you can look at the available 2020 options here:
- KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Set (Red)
- KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Set (Blue)
- KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Set (Pink)
- KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Set (White)
- KidKraft Vintage Kitchen Set (White with Gold Accents)
This is a great buy for anyone looking for that nice vintage looking kitchen set for their kids!
Largest Kitchen: KidKraft Large Kitchen (Pastel)
The KidKraft Large Kitchen is a great choice for parents that are looking for…well…a large kitchen play set.
This large kitchen playset weighs about 88 pounds – and is 42.2 x 16.2 x 42.9 inches in size. This will provide plenty of space for children to play in.
There is a refrigerator, freezer, oven, microwave, and dishwasher – all of which can be opened and closed. The oven and microwave have a see thru door, and there are plenty of knobs that can be twisted and turned.
It does have some pegs that you can hang kitchenware from, as well as four different burners to do your pretend cooking on. The sink can be removed for easy cleaning – which is nice the more this kitchen set gets played with.
It is recommended for children ages 3 and up – and parents – you are going to have to invest multiple hours of assembly time into it due to its large size.
It does have more of a pastel color scheme to it, most people would say it is a color scheme traditionally marketed to girls.
The big buying point for this playset is the large size, if you are looking for something that multiple children can play with at the same time, this is a great pick for you!
Best Corner KidKraft Kitchens: KidKraft Ultimate Corner Play Kitchen & KidKraft Grand Gourmet Corner Kitchen
There are a couple of really good corner kitchen options from KidKraft. The first is rated #4A on our chart above and that is the KidKraft Ultimate Corner Play Kitchen.
The unique design of the KidKraft Ultimate Corner Kitchen makes it a great choice, and it will provide plenty of play space for multiple children (size is 33 x 42 x 36.5 inches and the weight is about 60 pounds).
What is neat about this design is you have your refrigerator, freezer, and oven on the right hand side, the middle is made up of a storage space, sink, and microwave, and the right segment consists of a washing machine and counter space.
The corner design helps provide a very stable base, and should allow you to not need the wall mounting set like some of the other sets need. It has all the little features you would expect as well, such as knobs that twist, doors that open, handles that turn, a cordless phone, and so on.
You also have two color schemes to pick from. A very traditional white color scheme with some grey pieces splashed into it for some extra color. You can also pick from a darker brown color scheme, which is the one I prefer since it has a slightly more modern look in my eyes.
It is recommended for children ages 36 months and up and it normally costs right around $200. The big buying points are the size and corner design.
The second great corner kitchen set from KidKraft is the KidKraft Grand Gourmet Kitchen Set (#4B on our chart). Like the name implies, this uniquely designed Kitchen Set is “L” shaped to fit squarely into a corner for storage if needed, and can be pulled out at any time to play with.
The shape also gives it a very firm base – so you won’t have to worry too much about it being tipped over.
The kitchen itself has an oven, microwave, refrigerator, and freezer – all with doors that will open and close. It also has a phone, and plenty of knobs you can twist and turn throughout the kitchen.
Unique features include a washing machine, and behind the sink, this version even has some curtains that open and close. It also comes with a metal pot, metal pan, and two metal spatulas – most other sets do not come with any food equipment.
It is under 40 inches in height, so it is a little smaller than some of the other options. Your big buying points for this kitchen set is the unique shape, and some of the extra features that this kitchen set has that others do not!
Best Natural Wood Looking KidKraft Kitchen Set: KidKraft Uptown Natural Kitchen
If you are looking for a rustic, natural looking kitchen set, check out this KidKraft Uptown Natural Kitchen.
It is 43 x 17.8 x 41 inches in size, and weighs about 72 pounds. That should provide plenty of space for multiple children to play on.
It is almost identical to our number one option – the Uptown Espresso Kitchen – except for the color scheme (both have a freezer, fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave, sink, multiple burners, pegs to hang kitchen supplies, and so on).
This option has a more natural, light wood color to it, compared to the very dark, eye catching Espresso color scheme that made the Uptown Espresso Kitchen our number one choice.
If you are more into that natural wood look – this is a great pick for you, especially if it matches the home décor look you have going for you!
Best of the Rest: KidKraft Kitchen Sets
There are some other great KidKraft Kitchen Sets that we have not listed yet. Here are some of those great examples!
We added this KidKraft Farm to Table Play Kitchen Set to our list in 2020! It is rated very highly online, and has a very modern look to it that I really enjoy.
It has just about everything you could ask for. It has an oven, refrigerator, sink, counter space, racks to hang some pots and pans or utensils from – it even has an ice maker!
It also comes with an 18-piece accessory and play food set – which is nice since some of these options make you purchase all of those things separately. The best thing I can say about this kitchen set is it really embraces the farm to table concept; and that sharp modern look is sure to impress kids!
If you are looking for a kitchen set for younger children that is loaded with fun and bright colors, the KidKraft Deluxe Big & Bright Kitchen should be the one that you pick.
This set has the things you expect out of a KidKraft kitchen – such as a freezer, refrigerator, oven, microwave, burners, knobs, a removable sink – and this version even has a storage area underneath and above the sink to store all of the pots, pans, and kitchen utensils that you purchase for it.
This kitchen set is 42.25 x 17.25 x 43 inches in size (plenty of space for two children), and the durable wood pieces that it is made from help get the weight up to nearly 80 pounds.
Why you would choose this kitchen over some of the other options is the fun color scheme. It has splashes of orange, yellow, blue, and purple – really all of those bright colors that kids really enjoy.
So if you are looking for an eye catching piece for a child’s playroom, this is a great pick for you.
Another great option – especially if you are looking for a much smaller kitchen set for kids – check out this KidKraft Kids Kitchen Playset.
This play set is about 25 pounds in weight, and is 30.5 x 16.5 x 4.7 inches in size. This makes it easier to store, and easier for young children to play with, but it does become almost too small for 4, 5, 6 year-olds to play with comfortably.
There are a few design options, but they have a very classic look, and I’m a big fan of the red. It is not full size, so it is very compact. It has a sink, burners, oven, and refrigerator + a small storage space. It may be compact, but there is plenty of fun things for your child to play with.
These kitchen sets should cost right around $75, so they are some of the most affordable options from KidKraft you can buy. It also can be assembled in less than an hour – that is much quicker than those full sized options! Buy this choice if you want a kitchen set for very young children or need to preserve space!
