Cookware shops in new york,pan cooking broccoli quiche,le creuset volcanic cookware youtube - Review

30.09.2015 admin
2.5kg bag of Valrhona couverture chocolate which, surprise, surprise, I have not yet finished. Kookwinkel DOK Cookware is een samenwerking van de drie gerenommeerde kookwinkels: Duikelman uit Amsterdam, Oldenhof Kookkado uit Amersfoort, Hilversum en Zwolle en Kookpunt uit Rotterdam. Naast een zeer breed assortiment op het gebied van kookbenodigdheden, worden in DOK Cookware ook regelmatig kookdemonstraties en andere activiteiten op culinair gebied georganiseerd.
Wie op de eerste dag van de week uit eten wil, moet over het algemeen veel moeite doen om een restaurant te vinden dat geopend is. Paris is a mecca for cooks, and folks come here from around the world to stock up on French and specialty cookware.
As other people starting picking up tart rings and baking sheets, shops are now more welcoming to everyday cooks.
Shops in Les Halles often display prices HT (hors taxes) and that 19.6% is added on the bill when they ring you up, unless you have European tax-exempt status. Tourists can avoid the tax if you purchase €175 worth of goods in the same store on the same day. Also the Galeries Lafayette and Printemps department stores will give tourists a storewide discount coupon at their front desk, generally good for 10% off, if you present a foreign passport. The first thing to mention is that you won’t find many bargains in Paris on cookware.
For those in for an adventure, scour the outdoor markets: the Paris website has page that lists all the food markets and brocantes (sidewalk sales) in Paris and usually there are people there selling a wide range of French kitchen objects.
I also recommend checking out the discount stores dotted around Paris, which I mentioned in The Sweet Life in Paris, and consequently, many of you have asked me about specific addresses. You basically need to just walk around everyday neighborhoods (more are concentrated in the outer arrondissements, especially on the Right Bank), and you’ll come across some.
Ultra-modern cutlery share space in this shop that specializes in copper cookware made in their atelier, outside of Paris.
In the Clignancourt flea market, Bachelier sells vintage copper, linens, and cooking utensils.
With shops scattered about Paris, Kitchen Bazaar has the latest in ultra-trendy bakeware and appliances, plus cooking tools that are hard to find in, or out, of France.
One of my favorite places to shop in Paris, and the cheapest, these shops scattered across the city are packed with inexpensive porcelain baking dishes, glassware, cafe au lait bowls, shopping bags, and French novelties, like glasses for verrines. Less-famous than the other Clignancourt market, the Porte de Vanves flea market in the 14th is less-expensive and more of a real flea market than a collection of antique stores.
Primarily a food market nowadays, the origins of this terrific market was a place where used items where sold and traded. This giant fabric store sits under Sacre Coeur, and not only can you find cotton tablecloths, bistro napkins and lovely torchons (kitchen towels), but they sell etamine, French muslin cloth, which is a good replacement for cheesecloth. Pylones creates fun, yet functional, housewares, like cheesegraters in the shape of the Eiffel Tower and knives with colorful handles. Perhaps too professional for most people, but they do carry equipment for hotel and restaurants and is interesting to poke around in if you’re in the neighborhood.
This shop specializes in Japanese foods, but up on the first floor are tools for preparing Asian foods. This boutique of the famed German cutlery company not only carries a complete selection of their knives, but also cookware, manicure implements, and modern housewares.
All of these shops are clustered around the same area, accessible from the Les Halles metro. In these shops, when you buy something, a clerk writes your purchases up on a receipt, which you take to the cashier and pay for, then return to pick up your purchases. An especially good selection of glassware and heavy-duty, professional quality white French porcelain. One of my favorite shops in Paris for specialty foods, including chocolate, mustard, honey, and olive oils. Lots of cookware, but my favorite part of the store is the top story, which has food wrappers and other French cad bakery-style emballages. Pastry chefs come from all over the world to visit MORA, which has a great selection of tart and cake molds, whisks and spatulas, and just about everything else.
The department stores of Paris have excellent cookware departments, which carry professional-quality cookware as well as items for everyday use. This hypermarket chain has two stores, one at La Defense and the other at Porte de Bagnolet (M: Porte de Bagnolet), in large shopping centers. The third floor of this department store in the Marais, has an excellent cookware department.
Large department store, with several locations in Paris boasting extensive cookware departments.
This membership-only store has huge aisles filled with foods, including French cheeses, specialty butters (for pastry-making), and bakery-size boxes of chocolate and sugars.
I’ve heard before that it is often cheaper to purchase some items here instead abroad.
I think that if you have the store ship it for you, you can still get the VAT refunded at the airport. I was on my own personal cookstore walk-about today, but much to my horror Mora was having an extended lunch break.
Susan: Carrefour shops in Paris are not much cheaper (as you mentioned, if at all) than other places. Thanks so much for this exhaustive list – will be sure to use it for reference next time.
Whenever I am in Paris I shop at these stores for my culinary tools, each time finding more items that I realize I cannot live without. When commodity prices were much cheaper, and the dollar was stronger, I went a little crazy in Mora and Dehillerin. You are very mean to be teasing me with such a great post to keep for reference if I ever (will be a LONG time from now!) make my way to Paris! When I was in Paris 18 months ago I spent quite some time with my nose pathetically pressed against the windows of some of these shops – gripped with desire, but paralyzed by the knowledge that the freight back here to Oz was totally prohibitive. I agree with most of the comments above about the folly of buying Le Creuset and the like in France.
I knew of most of the shops near Les Halles as students get discounts (I think 10%) on supplies at Mora and E. A couple of years ago, on one of my first trips to Paris, one of my goals of the trip was to shop at E Dehillerin. I quite like Bodum design and they have a shop in Les Halles (and most likely other places in Paris too, but it is there that I stumbled upon their shop).
Great great entry, loved it, I would like to make a WARNING about DEHILLERIN, I bought a big copper pan , when I got home after traveling, it arrived dented, they wouldn’t hold the warranty because they only have a two day notice policy ( I was still on my trip). With the drop in the Euro against the dollar, it must be a pretty good time to shop there, taxes aside.


Hi David – do you know if the Matfer Bourgeat cookwares are highly rated or recommended in France? One of my dear friends shared the story of how he stopped in Paris first on his European backpacking trek (in the eighties). I love all your suggestions and was so excited to add these to my list of things to do until I realized my visit to Paris is in August. Thrilled to see La Vaissellerie on the list – I thought one of the pictures looked a little more than familiar. I bought a large amount of copper there twenty years ago and paid around the equivalent of $75US for a very heavy copper roasting pan, which (of course) was a great price. However nowadays airlines aren’t so generous and often make you pay to check an second bag (Air France charges €50 for a second bag, for example, at the time of this writing) and they are strict about weight limits. I checked the websites of some of the shops on your list but very few have any detailed information about their products. Nice article, I’ve always wandered is Le Creuset as popular in France as it is in the UK. De meest populaire theorie is dat het ontstaan is in 1894 in het bekende Saratoga Club-house in Saratoga Springs, New York. Op zich is het eten van kreeft een vermakelijke bezigheid, je kiest het beest uit en het personeel mag een poging wagen om deze uit de bak te vissen.
Many of the shops are clustered around the Les Halles area, where for many years restaurateurs shopped at the giant market there for produce and other comestibles, as well as professional kitchenware.
Often items are priced less elsewhere because many goods in France have substantial VAT added (hovering at around 20%).
But still, much in the places around Les Halles are self-service and getting attentive help can be a challenge. The most obscure food markets (marches alimentaires), most notably the ones in ethnic neighborhoods, have the best prices. Before setting out, remember that shops in Paris may be closed at unexpected times, on holidays, and in August. Open only on limited days, so be sure to call or check the website before venturing up there.
A local favorite, Chinese and Asian items are a specialty, although you’ll find French goods, most notably for restaurants, here as well. Certain times throughout the year the store has 30% off sales which makes shopping particularly fruitful. The nearby Ace Mart (63, rue Saint-Anne) also has some Asian cookware and in the quartier Chinois you’ll find Tang Freres and other large Asian markets.
Mostly glassware and earthenware, you’re expected to go in the back and comb the aisles for yourself. There are some used books amongst the stacks, but on the upper floor is an impressive collection of oversized books by European chefs which are hard-to-get outside of Europe. Hypermarkets, large discount food stores which have extensive cookware departments, are prohibited from operating within the city limits.
Hardware fans should stop in the basement and those looking to expand their cookbook collections should visit the book department. Be sure to check out the gourmet food hall at the Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann.

Not vast like the Auchan at Vezelay2 but certainly the biggest supermarket I’ve seen in Paris. I tend to buy only things that I cannot get in the US, and yes, have even gotten that Eiffel Tower cheese grater at Pylone for a gift.
At Printemps on Boulevard Haussmann, they’ve contracted out their bathrooms and now it costs €1-€1.5 to use them! One thing I will say I have consistently found to be a better deal in France than in the States (not to mention easier to fit in one’s luggage) is bakeware. The guys at DEHILLERIN where very rude, they did not take any responsiblity nor did they offer any solution.
This gift, a small confectioner’s pan with a pour spout is used mostly for carmelizing sugar.
I say skip the monuments and scale back on the museums, so that there is plenty of time to visit the markets and shops. I was going to ship all my copper at the time, but that nearly doubled the price, so I chose to bring it back myself, which wasn’t a problem. I’ve gone into Dehillerin lately to pick things up and have had to resist being talked into something that is much more expensive than what I really need so I advise people to buy items that they really do want. We had a wonderful experience at Dehillerin – it was quite late in the day, in the sweltering heat, and Kim cheerfully helped us with our choices. Although the market is gone, many of those stores exist and you can make a day of shopping in the various stores. Plus figure in shipping or baggage fees if you plan to haul it yourself as most airlines charge for additional suitcases. Be sure to measure your oven before you leave since French baking sheets, and silicone baking mats and cookware, are made for European-sized kitchens and appliances. Inside is usually a great selection of cookware and baking equipment, as well as some French bistroware.
Nearby is Virtuoses de la Reclame (5, rue Saint-Paul) for old cafe pitchers and memorabilia, and in the Village Saint-Paul (25, rue Saint-Paul, in the courtyard), Folle du Logis is worth a stop for rifling though their stacks of French plates, serving pieces, glassware, and other curiosities. Famous for their gorgeous copper, in the basement, the staff can be overtly eager to help you to buy something, or disinterested. But I’ve given the addresses of Auchan and Carrefour, that are just at the edges of Paris, easily reached by metro.
Known for their amazing La Grand Epicerie food hall next door, the main store stocks cookware. I treasure my heavy copper saucepan, however, that I purchased at E Dehilleron, invaluable for caramel making and reducing sauces. But can you explain to me why in gods name do they never ever have any of the prices on things at E.
Cookware can be large, heavy etc–not to mention the aggravation of customs, etc in airports. He uses them to this day and tells me he wouldn’t have changed a thing (except some recurring back problems).
It’s a shame, because I liked their pastry equipment shop, which was often less-expensive than the others nearby, for the same items. I found the perfect small copper saucier, and followed your tip and bought Dehilleron logo pastry scrapers for gifts. By the way, am also a photographer, so your blog and your perspectives appeal to my own inner cook.Am off to Rome and Paris in a few weeks and look forward to continuing to scour your site for related culinary info.


However the big department stores, often run promotions and you can score a cast-iron casserole or another treasure for a good price. The staff is well-informed, but don’t let them talk you into something expensive just because they recommend it. I find nothing more satisfying than giving the pans a good scrub after a great meal ( the kids have to do the rest of it though). Dehillerin is great for crepe pans in all sizes, just try and go when it is not packed elbow to elbow!
At G Detou I always find pastry supplies to pack in my luggage – great almond and pistachio paste,etc.
Like all boys and their toys, I love cooking and I like to have the best tools available… It sounds like these stores you mention are ideal. Once again, check prices before you leave home if you’re looking for specific pieces.
The plastic pastry scrapers with their logo on them make inexpensive, and excellent, gifts for baker and cooks back home. Like anywhere, it is always good to know your prices so you know a bargain when you see one. It drives me crazy having to ask how much every thing costs or riffling through their price book! He even offered to pack and ship everything, pointing out that I would avoid the sales tax that way.I was suprised that you suggested that people might like to exchange their canele moulds for a fish poacher! Pero incluso Dehillerin no tiene todo.  Afortunadamente, tres tiendas de la competencia estan a menos de 5 minutos - si sabes donde buscar. During sale periods (les soldes), in January and in the summer, markdowns can be substantial, especially if you wait until the final days. But seasonal promotions can be interesting: in December they sold disposable gold serving dishes for the specialites de saison, including oyster plates. Over in the 4th I even found wonderful old silverplate service ware and place settings from old bistros that had the name of the hotel or restaurant engraved on them. Prices are quite reasonable in this shop geared towards professional kitchens and I couldn't resist the Sugar-coated Verveine petals.
If you have a chance visit also Rungis, buy a macaroon at Pierre Herme or take a pastry class at Lenotre (see the other articles on my site). I guess it helps that my neighbours keep bees in their backyard, so I have a ready supply of beeswax to coat the moulds with. It is a bit romantic folly, I suppose, but for chefs and enthusiastic cooks, nowhere satisfies like Paris for exploring and finding culinary goods. On my most recent trip I picked up a little whisk shaped like a squid, just because I have a thing about cephalapods; turns out to be one of the most useful little tools in my kitchen arsenal. But homemade products are best served on the same day and you won't need any stabilizer.#7Comment by suzy dickinsonI was lucky enough to stumble across De Hillerin in the late 70's.
After a number of visits carting back copper pots,wooden rollng pins, knives, I managed to get my kitchen up to par. Los precios son muy razonables en esta tienda para cocinas profesionales y no pude resistir los Petalos de verveine cubiertos de azucar.
Finalmente, dos quimicos que rara vez se comentan en tiendas de reposteria pero que nunca faltan en los libros de cocina sobre nieves y reposteria son el cremor tartaro y el estabilizador para nieve cream of tartar and sorbet stabilizer. I suppose Americans might feel as if they deserve a lot of respect given their Imperial position but while the people in there in my experience don't behave any differently towards foreigners compared to locals they might seem a bit terse to people who are accustomed to obeisance and humility.
They take their stuff very seriously and will make it clear that you're making a mistake if that's their opinion. And their stock pays no lip service to fashion, but concentrates on things that are useful and well made. For all my fondness for this shop I must say that many of their wares are a bit old-fashioned and not really the best you can have nowadays.
Don't miss Pierre Herme's pastry shop out there on Rue Bonaparte.#22Comment by Anders RingnerThe Detout shop is just lovely. We once got lost on our way to the Comme des Garcons-shop in Paris and found Detout instead. We spent a month in Paris early in the year & I was sooo excited to go to Dehillerin, but what a disappointment!
Yes I did manage to spend a fortune & get some great stuff, but even though I speak French I was still ignored, they were SO unfriendly & unhelpful.
When I asked for specific items they just pointed to the opposite end of the store for me to find it myself, & continued standing around in a group doing nothing! There were so many staff who didnt seem to be doing anything, certainly not helping their customers. There was a lovely Vietnamese chap though who couldnt have been nicer, but he was run off his feet, of course.
They also didnt have as much as I expected & were out of stock of most of the Demarle products I was after. I will definitely check out your other suggestions next trip.FX's answer→ Yes Mr Kim is the nicest of them all, isn't he?
Now you should have started by reading my article "Paris Oldest Cooking Equipment Shop" and you would have been forewarned. I live in Cape Town, South Africa and would like to purchase some sugared violet petals to use on cupcakes with violet flavoured icing in our coffee shop, "la Petite Tarte".
While I can see the appeal of the notion of baking good cannelés using convenient plastic mold, there is not reality to it. How would that save you money?#30Comment by green apple sorbetI went to Paris yesterday specifically to buy a flan ring, and this post was a great help, thank you so much!
Will be going to Paris for my first time in May and can't wait to check out the kitchen shops.
Yes, chefs still make them; but obviously they don't break them so we don't need to stock them. I'm looking for the cuit vapeur en ceramique et bambou by JIA which I saw in Merci, but was hoping not to pay Merci prices. I don't think any of the above will have it, but I think I read there was a shop in Rue Lamartine, but can't find the link now. Mora, on the other hand, is merchandised in a more modern way but last month they could not be bothered to get off personal phone calls to see if the verrines I had ordered were in. Detou a tiny gorgeous pearl of a shop it was so crammed with Parisians when I went that I didn't get a proper chance to look round.
