Review: OG Gourmet Kitchen

Hey, guys! For Christmas, I got the Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen, and I thought some of you might like a review of this fantastic set. You can get it from Target for $65.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset

It has two main parts, a cooking area and a refrigerator. Both are made of hot pink plastic.

The cooking area has lots of fun features, like a microwave, sink, stove, oven, and dishwasher.

The window of the microwave has a frosted look.

The inside is big enough for the included plates to fit comfortably.

To the right of the microwave is a clock, above some shelving (the shelves are slightly slanted, so unless you put the objects all the way in the back, they’ll slip out). It has tiny hearts instead of numbers.

The clock swings open to reveal a safe. My friend keeps the set’s cookies in there.

Continuing to the right are more shelves. There’s not much room in the bottom shelf, but the top one is quite spacious.

Beneath the shelves are a window and a sink. The sink’s handles turn. The counter is gray with some black streaks thrown in, giving it a marbled look.

The set comes with a strainer that fits in the sink.

Beside the sink is a strip of counter the right size for the drying wrack. It’s not big enough for all the plates and cups, and the blue plates are too wide to fit all the way in.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | stove

On the left side of the kitchen is the stove. The dials turn, which is something I freaked out over when I first discovered it.

The backsplash is light pink, with thin plastic rectangles over it to look like tiles.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | oven

Below the stovetop is the oven. It opens easily to reveal the wrack inside. It can be pulled back and forth on plastic tracks and taken out.

There’s a drawer under the oven where I keep the pots and pans.

Moving to the right is a slim cabinet. It’s so thin that not much can fit inside. The cabinet is a bit hard to close, you have to really slam it shut for it click into place.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | dishwasher

Next is the adorable dishwasher! Stickers on the front display the settings.

Inside are three plastic baskets that, like in the oven, can slide around on tracks. The first one is so close to the top of the dishwasher that a baking tray is just about the only thing it can hold, but the other two are a good size.

The second part of the set is the fridge, shown next to MJ for size. She’s a few inches taller, so it’s kind of short, but it doesn’t really take away from the quality of the set.

The refrigerator has a water dispenser on one of the doors. The included cups can fit in it without falling out.

There are tons of shelves inside the fridge. Plastic tracks line the sides so you can rearrange them how you like. My only problem with the fridge is that all the storage on the inside of the doors are too small to accommodate any of the food.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | freezer

The freezer has plenty of room. I could probably fit all the food in the set in there if I tried.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | dishes

Now let’s take a look at the accessories.

Here are the dishes: a cream mixing bowl with white dots, two cups, two plates, two saucers, a pitcher, and two mugs (which are much too small, in my opinion).

The cooking utensils: spatula, ladle, baking tray, pan and lid, and pot.

Baking supplies: measuring spoons on a ring, a liquid measuring cup with markings, and a hand mixer.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | food

Now the really cute stuff — the tiny food. :) Produce: red pepper, raspberries, tomato, and orange. Everything but the berries are squishy plastic.

Milk, orange juice (with French on the back), eggs that come out of the carton, cheese, and butter dish.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | food

Salt and pepper shakers with glitter inside, olive oil, peanut butter, something that might be Nutella, and cans of peaches and tuna. The last two are way too small for 18″ dolls, I think, but they’re still cute.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | food

Box of marshmallow cereal, hamburgers, popsicles, and a sundae kit. They’re made of cardboard, so I’d be careful about accidentally squishing them. Everything is written in French on the other side.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset | accessories

Some miscellaneous stuff: two plants, a cookie jar, and three chocolate chip cookies.

Our Generation Gourmet Kitchen Playset

I love this set so much. It’s simply adorable and I could spend hours playing with it and setting it up. The colors are pretty and everything is well made. Plus, the food and dishes can be used as props in photostories.

However, a lot of the food and some of the dishes are too small for 18″ dolls. Things like the mugs and tomato are a better size for H4H dolls or WellieWishers. But overall, it’s an incredible playset that’s definitely worth $65. You can buy it here.

Do you want this set, or do you already own it? What’s your favorite part? Mine is the salt and pepper shakers, eggs, and measuring spoons.

  3. Great peek at the kitchen. I like all the accessories and moving dials and everything. The space issues could be annoying. I don’t have this but it is cute. Since it is two pieces, you could DIY some additional cabinets/countertops and make a bigger kitchen.

  4. I have an older version of this set from late 2014, so the counter doesn’t look like marble and some of the food and dishes are different, but yes, it’s an incredible piece! Probably my favorite doll furniture piece besides my dolls’ bunk beds. My favorite part is the fridge and the cups & pitcher. I wish mine had come that milk jug though! Mine came with a milk carton that looks like the OJ one. XD

  5. Ooh, I love this! If I got it, I would paint it to be a little more realistic, however. I don’t know anyone with a pink fridge.
    (Yeah, I know my comment is late. Somehow I lost your blog because typing the name into Google gets you nowhere. Thought I would see what I missed)
