Hotel Equipment Store

I think this is one of Shanghai’s best-kept secrets as to where to find Western kitchen things! If only I’d have known to go here when we first moved to Shanghai, instead of buying everything at IKEA. *sigh*

This store has everything, and you don’t have to buy 20 of everything. Anything you can imagine needing in a hotel, restaurant, or bar – it’s here. Fake fruit, napkins, tablecloths, glasses, silverware, serving utensils, massive refrigerators, sinks, ovens, those big gas outdoor patio heaters, bells to ring for service… it’s all here and inexpensive. Three floors of fun! (The 2nd to 4th floor, in case you notice the 4F sign further down.)

Address: 345 Aomen Lu, near Jiangning Lu
澳门路345号近江宁路

Claire and Bonnie have a custom baking business called “Sweet Bon-O-Mine.” They are expanding and looking for a small, inexpensive kitchen space – let me know if you have any guanxi to find this!

Bakeware… I’m going to have to come back and get some casserole dishes.

The 4th floor is where to find all of those baking supplies you can’t find in Shanghai. Including cookie cutters, icing decorating bags and tips, pans, molds, rolling pins, etc.

I just love Lock’n’Lock containers. I bought this size of container at Tesco and it was about 80 RMB. Here it was 28 RMB!!!

Look, even a wedding gift set. If only I had more cupboard space.

Ever wonder where the bars get hundreds of dice for the dice games? Neither did I. But, apparently they buy them here!

Happy customers!

  1. Good tip, I'll be checking this place out fo' sho'.

    Hope they've got banana bread loaf tins…

  2. Yep, I am sure they have all sizes of bread loaf pans, as I remember wondering why the ones I got from IKEA were so long and theirs were normal.

    Check out the whisks that are the size of oars too. :-)
