Is anyone familiar with Eversun Kitchen Supply Inc

in Brooklyn? And how it compares to Bowery or Chef in Manhattan

  1. Is that the one in sunset park on 8th ave?

    I was there once a couple of months ago--but i didn't pay that close attention to the inventory as i was only looking for a wishing cat.

    my overall impression is that it mainly stocked things for the chinese/asian restaurant trade. so not sure if it has some of the bar/baking things that you can find in the bowery places in manhattan.

    and unfortunately, no idea on the prices and how they compare.

      Someone told me a few of the Bowery restaurant supply places have moved over to Atlantic Ave, down towards Bed-Stuy. I have not been yet to check it out...

        Yea AFAIK there are only 2 places left any good Bower Restaurant Supply and Chef. I need some new 1/2 sheet pans and don't want to trek into the city adn don't want to pay specialty store prices and want to see it before I buy it

          that's funny, i desperately need half sheet pans too and was just wondering the other day if eversun carried them for a good price cause i didn't want to trek to the bowery either.

          if you find a place in brooklyn with half sheet pans at a good price, would you post here and let me know?

          1. re: missmasala

            ha - I bought two half sheet pans at B'way Panhandler cause I just needed them for a birthday cake. Funny.

            THere's also a Chinese restaurant supply place 2nd/3rd Ave in Sunset Park - 30s or 40s. We needed a huge pot, but I'm not the one who picked it up so I can't tell you what else was there...

    2. I finally go to this place to check it out. It is small and no baking

      I went to Kerekes Bakery and Restaurant supply on 15th Ave & 61st St. Paid under $10 with tax for a 16"X21" pan

      I stopped at McDonald Paper and Restaurant Supply and they wanted $18 for the same pan

        thanks jack. i'll head to kerekes for my desperately needed half sheet pans.

        1. re: missmasala

          Careful when you go, they are closed for the Jewish holiday now

            Or get the Chicago Metallic pans on amazon. They're top quality (25 years warranty) and cost about the same as buying the lesser quality stuff at the restaurant supply stores. $25 for a set of 2.

            1. re: Joe MacBu

              thanks, but the pans i want are $7.50 at kerekes, which is much cheaper.

              also, i don't like the too high quality half sheet pans, as then i can't use them for all the messy, baked on stuff i use mine for because i won't want to ruin them.

              i treat my half-sheet pans like a restaurant might---buy a bunch, use them for a couple of years, and when they're too browned and blackened and gross, get some new ones.
