2. Choose a recipe that uses the appliance you want. Set the recipe aside while you discuss the various parts and uses of the appliance, (For example, a blender can puree, chop, etc.) Follow the checklist as you demonstrate the operation, safety features and hazards of the appliance.

4. When Step 3 has been mastered, then move on to the recipe. Let your child concentrate on operating the appliance. As he runs it, ask him to tell what he's doing and why. Again, if any errors or omissions occur, stop immediately (if practical) and repeat Step 3.
