Bowery Kitchen Supplies
75 NInth Ave.
between W.15th16th Sts.
Cookware and kitchen supply store located in the Chelsea Market. Extensive selection of both restaurant quality and home cook equipment at very good prices.
This is a good place to look for both basic and exotic cooking tools, gadgets and appliances. And it's conveniently located in the grocery-centric Chelsea Market, making it easy to pick up a special tool that you need to have for a special meal you may be shopping for.
What to avoid:
Some of the appliances they sell are too large for the typical city kitchen and reflect this merchant's history as a supplier to the professional restaurant kitchen market.
What to know:
While prices can be very competitive on many items, don't assume that everything they sell is a bargain. On branded items, such as knives, you can often do much better either on-line or shopping elsewhere in the Manhattan. The store also does not sell many of the more popular cookware brands.
Knife sharpening is done on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
