What are some good websites for shopping online for cookware? I know cutleryandmore.com and bridgekitehenware. Any others come to mind?
Most sites (such as Cooking.com, Sur la Table et al.) have more or less the same products at more or less the same prices; generally when there's a sale on a major brand like All-Clad or Le Creuset it will be reflected at various sites, because these manufacturers don't allow retailers to discount their goods without authorization. (Like Apple Computer.)
That said, Broadway Panhandler
sometimes has sales that other sites don't.
The Gadget Source
has good prices on small items.
And this pastry site
has specialized gear that I've never found anywhere else.
Food411.com is a source for cookware, bakeware, etc. sources; useful sometimes, frustrating other times: http://food411.com/
I check out Amazon and Crate and Barrel a lot too; they often have awesome sale prices on name brand equipment.
King Arthur (Baker's Catalogue) has quite a bit of nice bakeware and specialty bread packaging, etc. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/l...
Chef's Catalog has a ton of stuff as well: http://www.chefscatalog.com/Home.aspx
potsandpans.com, but I find if I'm looking for something generic like a teapot, as opposed to a partciular brand and oddball pan, amazon.com has the most choices.
Culinary Parts, which had a good inventory of appliance parts, whole appliances, cookware and gadgets, has merged with Goutmet Depot. I haven't yet bought anything from Gourmet Depot , but it seems to be selling much of what the other sites sell, and to be maintaining the Culinary Part inventory
Williams Sonoma is yet another possibility. It sells gourmet food as well as appliances and cookware.
Thankfully marka mentioned cookwarenmore.com. They have an all-clad outlet that sells stuff for sometimes as much as 50% off retail. They say they're "seconds", but for the life of me (I've ordered many times) I can't find any cosmetic blemishes on the 4 qt sauce pan I just ordered. They are also one of the few that still sale MC2, the best of the All clad line IMHO.
