Online kitchen retailer for Canadians

I'm looking for reliable online sellers of kitchen products that ship to Canada and offer decent prices and fair shipping costs. Suggestions?

I don't mind paying Canadian retailers a small premium but often, the differences between prices north of the border and those south of the line are ridiculous.

Cooks Illustrated recommends the Kalorik Stick Mixer as their favourite immersion blender, at a price of about $25. The Kalorik USA website shows MSP of $30. Walmart USA has it on sale $16. offers it at $25. offers it at $70. offers Victorinox #40520 Fibrox 8-Inch Chef's Knife for $47. = $26. = $23. House of Knives in West Van charges about $46.

I could add many examples.

    However most are probably not price competitive. I tend to have my american goods shipped to a parcel receiver at Point Roberts. Short drive plus gas/milk\eggs\cheese are cheaper and it only costs $3 per small parcel for the depot fee. Going through customs is usually pretty easy there as well. YMMV

        THere are I think two places in Point Roberts that do it. One is TSB Shipping; you look up their web site and register with them before you order goods from the US.
