Wholesale Food Equipment sells everything a commercial or experienced home cook would need or want. Located along busy Route 211E in Middletown, NY, this isn't a fancy kitchenware store--but it is open to the public. This place is stocked wall to wall with supplies and equipment ranging from ranges, mixers, ice cream freezers, bakeware, storage containers, ovens, pots and pans, clothing...you name it.
I picked up some commercial grade heavy storage containers to use when I prepare and freeze soups & stews in quantity. Past experience has taught me that items sold in department stores or retail outlets just don't keep the foods as fresh or prevent freezer burn.
Don't see what you want? The store has a shelf of manufacturers catalogues that you can search through and they will order the item.
I've got my eye on aluminum saute pans and a commercial blender that will puree soups. These will go on my Santa wish list.
