Play Kitchen with Dimmable Burners

We never tire of seeing the play kitchens submitted by our readers, they seem to bring out the best in creativity and ingenuity. This one, however, may take the cake as far as burners are concerned. Sure, they light up. Yeah, they are a cool flame color. Wait, the flames are adjustable? Game on!

Dave was not interested in the plastic play kitchens available commercially and found the wooden ones either too boring or expensive. So using his woodworking skills and electrical knowledge he created this great play kitchen with the best burners ever, controlled by two dimmer switches..

To focus only on the burners does Dave an injustice since there are a number of great details in this kitchen, including a storage shelf on the bottom, beadboard accents and a cheery red and white color scheme. He estimates it took him 30-40 hours to build and cost about $100. Nicely done, Dave!
