If cooking is your jam, and kitchenware excites you like a perfectly executed Thai Green Curry, then make space on your counter — Kitchen Warehouse has opened a giant store in Majura Park.
As Australia’s number one destination for kitchenware, Kitchen Warehouse is a one-stop-shop for all things relating to the home, cooking and entertaining. It sells a huge (and we really do mean huge) range of appliances, cookware, knives, tableware, kitchenware, applianes, drinkware, bakeware and more, both online and in-store.
The family owned and run business, which began as a single store in Western Australia in the 1990s, has expanded across five states, with Majura Park to become its 19th store.
A collaboration of the hard work of Marilyn and John Macaulay and their children Peter Macaulay and Justine Murphy, Kitchen Warehouse’s existing online store is a thriving business (and the biggest of its kind in Australia), which many Canberra foodies will have already used to procure their favourite kitchen essentuaks.
According to Peter, Canberra has long been a destination for another Kitchen Warehouse bricks and mortar store—it was just a matter of finding a location large enough to showcase their enormous product selection, which includes big brands such as KitchenAid, Le Creuset, Magimix, Riedel, Laguiole, Global, Scanpan, Swiss Diamond, Tefal, Frank Green, Chasseur, OXO and many more.
“We pride ourselves on being more than just a shop. Kitchen Warehouse is a kitchenware shopping destination, with in-store team members offering unparalleled expertise, advice and service, as well as workshops and demonstrations which help to build a community around our stores,” says Peter.
“We want to create adventures around cooking, and with a range of more than 10,000 products, we have everything you need to successfully cook and entertain at home. Our buying team has more than 50 years of experience in sourcing products, and our range is expertly curated. We only stock the stuff we want in our own homes.”
Describing himself as a passionate weekend cook, who settles on complicated recipes before leaving a trail of destruction in his kitchen, Peter said Canberra’s demographic revealed a population which loved food shopping, markets, organic and local produce, and has a strong café culture.
“We really hope to plug into the Canberra food scene and encourage cooking at all levels.”
Saying that the family adheres to the motto ‘buy once, buy well,’ Peter said Kitchen Warehouse is the place to go for the highest quality brands of kitchenware at the best possible prices, and a wide range of products, so you can find the right tool for the task, every time.
To celebrate its opening, Kitchen Warehouse is hosting a Housewarming Party on Sunday 12 November from 10am to 2pm. There will be free tastings and demonstrations, including a class with chef Luca Ciano, beloved Canberra icon Mr Papa and his empanadas, a Mellabella gelato cart, free coffees, pizza and toasties, and a gift with purchase for the first 150 customers who spend $25 or more in-store.
