Calhoun Square in Uptown is a great shopping plaza that has a variety of restaurants, shops, and services. Some highlights include: Chiang Mai Thai, Jimmy John’s, Dogwood Coffee, H&M, and my gym – LA Fitness. One of Calhoun Square’s greatest attractions is Kitchen Window.
Inside Kitchen Window is a seemingly never ending expanse of kitchen gadgets, tools, accessories, and knick-knacks. With everything from the practical to the completely unnecessary, this is a great place to look if you want to build up – or jazz up – your kitchen. I’ve only purchased a few things here (price usually leads me to get the budget version of items at Ikea), but if you are
a real adult someone with more money to spend on kitchen gear, then I doubt you could find a better stocked store than this.
A peek inside…There are cute aprons, towels, and place mats:
A wide range of appliances:
Oils and spices:
Specialty baking goods:
The biggest pepper grinder you could ever need:
And even a small cookbook section:
Lastly, one of Kitchen Window’s greatest prides….
THE BIG GREEN EGG:
The Big Green Egg is a special grill that’s supposed to replicate cooking meat in clay ovens and provides the user with “the ultimate cooking experience.” Kitchen Window sells a lot of Big Green Eggs and hosts several demonstrations and workshops of how to maximize their benefits.
This weekend, I was lucky enough to go by the store while they were having a big sale:
All of the sale items were 50% off or more. I was tempted by many items, but I settled on a small ice cream maker and an egg poacher:
The ice cream maker was a little bit of an impulse buy, so I’ll just have to commit myself to putting it to good use. 🙂
