This is a retail kitchen equipment store, but with a lot of charm and savvy. It has things that you didn't even know you needed, but you will before you leave. Prices are excellent. I scored a German device that takes the top off a soft boiled egg. It cost me $8 but it retails for $22 in famous-name online... More

We happened too be walking past and remembered reading TA reviews. The staff was pleasant and helpful but I did not see anything very different from another kitchen store. Certainly not worth a special trip.

Nothing special as we have a cooking store her us that contains a wider selection and offers cooking classes as all. As we wandered the store we were not approached by staff with any offer of assistance or welcome to the store.

I could devote an entire day to this store! So much to see and do! All the items in the store made me want to cook up a lot of stuff! And I could take all of the classes!

Don't know what's so "maverick" about this place. The staff are nice and helpful, they have some southern items and things are well displayed, but it was extremely crowded when we visited and merchandise didn't seem much different from other cooking stores. Sorry Charleston Cooks!

This place is right in the heart of the Tourist District by the Market. Parking is difficult, which makes trips down there a special event. The selection of wares is extensive, and the staff are well-versed in how to use them, and some good other suggestions. The quality of the cooking items is high-end, and reflected in their prices. But... More

I just got back from a cooking class on Charleston's coldest day ever. The Chinese new year class was lovely and the staff teaching it was wonderful. However, it was after the class that made me realize what a wonderful staff CC! has. As I was leaving the store around 8:45, I realized I couldn't find my keys. I looked... More

We go to this store every time we visit Charleston and buy at least one gadget. This place is worth at least 15 minutes of browsing even if you don't cook much. They have items that are not in most cooking gadget stores. On this visit, my wife bought a flexible sealer for her glass/porcelin bowls. It looks weird but... More
