Good cookware at bargain prices?
The LA 'hounds were very helpful a few weeks back in responding to my request for grocery shopping recommendations, but now I learn that our dear daughter lacks much of what one would need to actually prepare a decent dinner. Any thoughts on where to get some quality cookware at a discount? Knives, in particular. (I guess she and her roommate presently bludgeon their food ...) We'll try to pull the classic two-fer: combination of Christmas presents and the means of survival.
We're coming into LA on the 19th and will be staying in Brentwood. However, we don't mind taking a drive 'most anywhere in LA to find good food and good stuff.
All suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Try these discount retailers: Marshall's and Ross.
They sell some quality open stock cookware (Calphalon). I have also seen Wusthoff knives as well. They sell brand name for bargain prices, but you have to be patient and dig around, some stores are very messy and not organized, but some are stocked & organized well. However, with the Holiday season, it can be bad. Good Luck!
Five Star on Sepulveda in the Valley has used Cooking stuff. Pots and pans, old rest equip, etc...a good place to visit.
Tuesday Morning currently has some Calphalon odds and ends at around half normal retail, and various kitchen knives at good prices. Closeouts, of course, so they may or may not have what you are looking for, but worth checking out. They have stores at various locations.
