Cookery


Initial Problems The kitchen is a place in the house where a lot goes on. Parents who have small children have to pay extra attention to make sure that they are safe. It becomes a burden for them while they are cooking and jeopardizes their ability to focus. According to The Royal Children’s Hospital Safety Centre (Melbourne) in 2008, children in ages 0-4 account for 54% hospital treated home injuries, in comparison to 27% for ages 5-9 and 20% for ages 10-14. Most child injuries caused by the kitchen are in the 0-4 age group. These injuries can include poisoning, falling, or from hot liquids.

Manufacturing Process

oly

Plastic Taking in consideration for the price, details, and overall variety, plastic is better. Wood is heavier, harder to clean, and can amount to bacteria or mold as time goes on.

Ma sty

Polystyrene (PS) is a polymer formed of styrenes and has excellent surface quality. Lego blocks are often made of this material, so the assembly is pretty strong.
