11 Great Cooking Supply Stores in Metro Phoenix
|Fancy machine at Sur La Table|
Sur La Table
Sleek, industrial design elements lend this elegant, thoughtfully merchandised corporate store a serious tone, appealing to accomplished cooks with limitless budgets. Want the best coffee or espresso maker money can buy? Sur La Table probably stocks it -- as well as other fancy appliances, premium cookware, tools, bake-ware, cutlery (including a handful of top-notch Japanese brands), housewares, dinnerware, bar-ware, glass-ware and linens. And food. Did we mention food? Like alder-smoked sea salt from Alaska? It's all here -- a little cook's paradise, complemented by cooking classes in a swanky separate room. Not to worry if you don't drive a Mercedes. SLT runs plenty of good sales too.
Shar's Bosch Kitchen Center
Shar's is fully as much cooking school as gourmet cooking shop, routinely filling classes of 70 to 90 people. But there's plenty of cool stuff to browse and buy here, even if the huge space seems a bit sparsely stocked. This 20-year-old shop specializes in Bosch appliances but also carries food processors, canning supplies, gadgets (need a recipe divider or an egg cuber?) and cookware with a healthy bent, say, a Huron Slow Juicer, said to supply four times the vitamins of a high-speed juicer. Pressure cookers abound, as do pressure cooking classes for the uninitiated.
