Wondering if anyone goes through periods where they get kitchen tool/equipment fever. I know I do. I'm majorly anal when it comes to organizing my own personal kitchen items. My closet is a mess, but my kitchen cabinets are always in order.
What are some your favorite places to shop for kitchen tools and equipment?
My favorite kitchen place is in Rhinebeck NY called Warren kitchen & Cutlery. They're small but they have a decent selection of restaurant-style tools, and a great selection of cutlery. Some home-goods too like wine glasses and neat gadgets and such. I visited Sur La Table today for the 3rd time I believe, but I'm not impressed with them anymore because they seem to carry a lot of gadgety housewifish items. They're good if you want to buy expensive name brand cookware like Le creuset and all-clad. I also like William and Sonoma because the not only do they have handsome tolls, the quality is really good, although a bit pricey. There aren't really any other places that I'm aware of that sells good quality items..
I'm also a sucker for platters and white-ware (Target has a great selection, believe it or not). I'm always on the look-out for things I can use for catering.
So here are my latest finds
