10 Things You Should Be Buying at Restaurant Supply Stores

Not many baking tools work harder than the cookie sheet, especially when pounded against the oven rack.

Baking sheets

This kitchen staple is one of the most popular items home cooks look for, available in different sizes at a fraction of the cost at your local kitchen shop or department store.

Cutting boards

Supply stores have a wide selection of piping tips and pastry bags for creative decoration at lower pricing than most outlets.

Whisks, spatulas, and wooden spoons are available at traditional stores, but the selection is smaller.

Whisks and other utensils

Instead of buying one of these kits, you may get a set of decent, hardworking knives from a restaurant supplier for far less.


A sophisticated set of mixing bowls is unnecessary. Instead, buy dishes in every size from your local seller.

Baking gadgets in all sizes

Restaurant suppliers provide economical nonstick, ceramic, and stainless steel options so you can stock up for busy kitchen days.

Frying pans

I usually line my cookie sheets with parchment paper, but I want a couple reusable silicone mats to make it easier (do you cut the wrong size half the time?).
