Cooking for Hobby or Business: Go here!
De Kookwinkel Soly in Kasteelpleinstraat 65 in Antwerp is a fantastic place for hobby cooks, food preparation enthusiasts and I believe even pros. An excellent advise was given to me by a real professional cook, who works for Demeyere (which says it all, doesn't it?). I had pre-ordered what I wanted to look at by e-mail and everything was ready for me, even though I came one day early.
De Kookwinkel Soly have pots, pans, pressure cookers, tahines, knifes, gadgets, whatever you may wish to add to your kitchen! I came from Switzerland and - having lost all my kitchen accessories through a divorce (it happens) - I had reason to buy a full set. Here you can truly compare brands like Spring, Demeyere, Le Creuset and many others. Also the different series, these brands offer. They have it all. It is a dream. They had a lot of tempting special offers, as I was buying not by impulse but by plan, I did not buy those, but would go in there any time (presents and surprises for yourself and everybody else who cooks).
As I bought quite a lot I got a 10% reduction without asking for it and by exporting it to Switzerland (getting VAT back, even counting in the tax I paid when importing) I saved around 25% compared with the Swiss prices.
And I was able to really look at the items. I loved the shop, although I have to say, for wetting your appetite, the "Kookhus", a few blocks down Kasteelpleinstraat, but on the same side of the street, is better. There they have more space and also ovens, barbecues and so forth. My tip: go to both, but don't divorce just for a reason to buy there.
