25+ Playful Kitchenware for People Who Love Animals

Whether you’re a master chef or can barely boil pasta, it doesn’t matter—cooking should be fun. Making the task enjoyable is easier than you think. Simply changing your kitchen utensils can bring some welcome whimsy to your stove and oven. Animals—both real and fictitious—are a fantastic way to do this. From quacky colanders to mythical ladles to pensive cheese graters, it’s a cinch to accessorize your space with animal themed kitchen tools.

For every creature product, there’s a defining characteristic that makes them so endearing; each takes on the shape of the animal. A sloth tea infuser, for instance, resembles the sleepy mammal. As it flavors your hot water, the character looks as though it’s enjoying a nice soak in a jacuzzi. Likewise, the now-famous Nessie Ladle is an adorable, imaginary creature looming in a bowl of soup. When its left inside of a pot, all you see is the end of the handle—and its tiny eyes that peer at you. Watch out, because it’s coming for you!

Unleash animals in your kitchen—in a good way! (We can’t be responsible for your dog getting into the spaghetti.)
