Graco Sous Chef 5 in 1 High Chair and Booster Seating System

Today I have a guest post to share with you from Janessa of the blog Thrifty Nifty Mommy. If you have a little one (or one on the way), you won’t want to miss this Graco review and giveaway!

Graco has done it again! They’ve introduced a product into the baby gear world that is a first of it’s kind! So today I have a Graco Sous Chef 5 in 1 High Chair and Booster Seating System review for you.

Graco 5 in 1

Graco Sous Chef is unique and like nothing you’ve ever seen before because it is like five baby gear items in one and grows with your child, beginning from day 1!

  • Mode 1: Creates a secure, elevated newborn space in the kitchen
  • Mode 2: Removable rocker with two-speed vibration and toy bar keeps babies entertained
  • Mode 3: Infant feeding recline high chair for baby’s earliest feedings
  • Mode 4: High chair with one-hand removable tray and dishwasher-safe insert
  • Mode 5: Toddler booster seat securely attaches to your dining chair

I’m going to start with the first mode and work my way through all of them. Let me just start out by saying that I think the first mode is just genius and I’m not sure why someone didn’t think of doing this sooner. It’s always, ALWAYS at dinnertime when my newborns decide they need me. They could be happily playing on the floor all day long, but I walk out to the kitchen and the baby immediately starts to cry. When in Mode 1, the infant is positioned high enough and within easy reach so he/she can watch you safely while you work in the kitchen, fixing, washing dishes, etc. Honestly, I wish I’d had this when my 3 little ones were a newborn. It would have made me life so much easier.

Mode 1

The newborn seat looks very comfy and is made with super soft fabrics. It features head/body support and a 5-point (or 3 point if you prefer) harness with covers. It also features two-speed vibration and a detachable toy bar to keeps babies soothed and entertained. It attaches with a simple click to the base and detaches just as easily, which brings me to Mode 2.

Maybe you aren’t working in the kitchen, but are sitting in your living room. Simple push the release buttons on each side of the newborn seat and it becomes a portable rocker, allowing you to take it anywhere in your home. This would be a great seat for moving into the bathroom when you need a quick shower or taking it into the living room when you’d like to sit on the couch and read a book.

Mode 2

Let’s move up to Mode 3, when baby is ready to begin eating. You’ll use Mode 3 when you’d like your seat to be reclined for a younger baby. The high chair seat easily snaps into place on the base, and an optional foot rest is included. The premium leatherette high chair seatpad is wipeable and machine washable for the really big messes. The seat also features a no-rethread five-point harness to keep your child securely in the seat.

Mode 3 and 4

When your baby is sitting up well, you’ll move to Mode 4. The highchair has a large tray that you can attach/remove with just one hand. It also has a removeable tray insert that is dishwasher safe (although large, so it might not fit in all dishwashers).

Graco High Chair

Last of all is Mode 5. This is when you’ll use the seat in booster mode for older kids who would like to join you at the table. It raises my 3 year old up to the perfect height to join us for dinner.

Sitting at table

Other Important Info About This Seat

  • The base frame (which you’ll use for Modes 1, 3 & 4) features 4 lockable wheels, making it easy to move it around the kitchen.
  • Frame height is adjustable.
  • It also collapses to make storage easy.
  • Maximum weight capacity: Newborn Seat Rocker: 20 lb. or 30″; High Chair: 40 lb.; Booster Seat: 60 lb.
  • It is currently sold in the Arcadia fashion: This fashion features a soft, circular pattern of blue and gray shapes, finished with solid gray and dark blue accents. It’s a cute style just right for modern boys & girls.

Overall, I’m really thrilled with the Graco Sous Chef 5 in 1 High Chair and Booster Seating System. I love the fact that it can be used from the very beginning and then continues to be useful into the preschool years. Not only does it limit the number of products you’re having to buy, but it also limits the amount of space used in the home. It’s a win-win for me and I think it will be for you too!
