I'm sorry to say, but once you've worked at a restaurant, catered or worked in an institutional kitchen, you really can't see the value in places like Sur La Table or Williams-Sonoma. The stores are nice, but too expensive for my tastes. Call me spoiled, but I like the cheap stuff.
I am aware that places like Costco and Sam's Club have some stuff, but is there a store that caters especially to restaurants and that is open to the public? I realized after tonight, I could use a two inch full sheet pan (those who have worked in restaurants will know exactly the pan I need), among a few other things.
Thanks in advance. I do read the threads from time to time, but I need to watch the waistline.
