good deals for kitchen stuff
Visiting NYC soon. I love going to the Strand for good deals on books, but I don't know where to go for kitchen supplies. Any suggestions? I am looking for authentic paella pans in different sizes and maybe a small Le Crueset dutch oven. ABSOLUTELY NO WILLIAMS-SONOMA. Thanks.
For specific, brand-name items such as Le Creuset, Zabar's and Broadway Panhandler are where I would go, especially if your time is limited. If you care less about brands but want high-quality professional stuff, many choices in Kathryn's threads.
re: City Kid
If you want one-stop, decent prices, and helpful staff, I think Zabar's is your best bet. There may be pro shops downtown that are even cheaper but Zabar's has just about everything and is a pleasant and efficient place to shop if you don't feel like devoting a day to it. You can call to check but I'd be surprised if they don't carry paella pans.
What about the kitchen supply stores on Bowery? Some pro-oriented shops are there...
I would also look into JB Prince.
Here's a related discussion as to where hounds buy their supplies:
