is there a decent kitchen gadget place left in Milwaukee?

I know the commercial places, but Gourmet Cottage is apparently no longer in Brookfield, the Gourmet Outfitters is long since gone, the place up in Manatowic went under (upsets me - that was my excuse to also go to Pine River Cheese) anything else in driveable distance?

Williams-Sonoma is not really an option in my book. Anywhere else? Anything locally owned?

  1. Since you're okay with driving a bit:

    Le Cookery in Lake Geneva is a little on the small side but has a nice selection of tools and things (and then you can go to The Cheese Box!).

    The Cook Book Kitchen Store in Sister Bay (Door County) - I got the best flour sifter and a whole bunch of thin spatulas there.

    If you wouldn't mind a few commercial places - not locally owned but fun to have them all together in one location:

    Prime Outlet Mall in Pleasant Prairie has Le Gourmet Chef, Calphalon, Corningware/Corelle, Kitchen Collection, Knife Factory, and Le Creuset, (and Ghiradelli Chocolate where they hand you a free sample when you walk in the door. Yum!

    1. I'm not sure what type of kitchen gadgets you are thinking of, but this place is pretty remarkable. and locally owned:

      The website shows maybe 10% of what is in the store.

        also, depending on what you're looking for, there's a bar supply store on Greenfield at about 68th(ish) that has some fun stuff
