Kitchen Shops in Barcelona

I realise kitchenware is not the most riveting of subjects for some but personally I do love a kitchen gadget. I like most gadgets, but as I’ve gotten older the kitchen gadget is my want. If I had a garden then I’m positive I’d like garden gadgets, but I have a 3m square terrace so the kitchen is my gadget domain.

Kitchen Shops in Barcelona: I’m not talking about shops selling fridges or dishwashers or whole kitchens. These are shops for people looking for that cool item that does a certain cooking task the perfect way. Or the perfect gift for a foodie friend. As well as of course great knives and cookware.

This started when I wanted to buy a Lékué Steam Case, one of those silicone jobs that can withstand the oven, the freezer, the dishwasher, and cats it seems. I thought I’d go on a little trawl of all the kitchen shops I knew and see what I could find.

So, in no particular order…

Taula i Cuina

Taula i Cuina, c/ Tamarit, 162

Taula i Cuina in Sant Antoni (c/ Tamarit, 162) has been around since 1952. Patricia from the store found this post and got in touch to put me straight, so I couldn’t not add it. But joking aside, it was a glaring omission on my part.

This is a fabulous store in a real foodie part of town where you can find all the well-known cooking brands at good prices, as well as an excellent range of the all important cooking gadget.

There’s no website at the time of writing but you can catch up with them on Facebook and Instagram. Or of course, pop in when you’re Sant Antoni way.

Cooking – The Kitchen Company

Cooking – The Kitchen Company, c/ Provença, 278

On to The Kitchen Company (c/ Provença, 278). This is far more like it. A huge Le Creuset range, an ample Good Grips range, beautiful copper pans, ice cream makers, blenders, bread makers, coffee machines, and even the trusty Magimix. This shop is heaven. It has plenty of gadgets too! And they have regular cooking demonstrations. I couldn’t resist a satin black Le Creuset cast iron grill for 73€. My only tip is if you’re out shopping and wish to purchase such an item, get it last. It’s bloody heavy!

Riera

I popped into Riera (c/ Provença, 255) just along from TKC. This used to be budget store Avet but this new kitchen incarnation is a step up. Plates, glasses and porcelain are their raison d’être but they also have their fair share of kitchen accoutrements.

Expect to find Royal Doulton, Waterford and Wedgwood alongside Alessi, Riedel and Screwpull.

Definitely worth a look, especially if you need a new dinner set or wine glasses.

Gadgets & Cuina

Gadgets & Cuina, c/ Aragó, 249

Up Rambla de Catalunya and left on c/ Aragó you’ll find Gadgets & Cuina (c/ Aragó, 249). As you may be able to tell by the name, this is the kitchen gadget shop. No Magimix’s here! Just lots and lots of kitchen gadgets. They also have a big selection of cake decorating apparatus. And something I couldn’t bring myself to buy but now regret was a Lékué macaron making kit & recipe book. I adore macarons, and this kit made it look easy.

Gadgets & Cuina is well priced too. It is where I ended up buying the Lékué Steam Case and it was the cheapest place I found. I also picked up two of these great little egg cooking things. They also have a stall in the Boqueria you can check out and another shop in L’illa on Diagonal.

Zwilling J.A. Henckels

The Zwilling J.A. Henckels flagship store is on Diagonal near Balmes (Avda. Diagonal, 407). This German brand has been around since the 18th century. Zwilling J.A. Henckels specialises in quality knives which they let you try out in store on a range of unsuspecting vegetables. The company has purchased the French Staub cast iron cookware brand, and from Belgium the Demeyere stainless steel cookware company. They also have a range of Japanese knives.

Everything in this shop is of the highest quality. If you like kitchen stuff, you’ll love this shop.

El Corte Inglés

My local department store at one time, El Corte Inglés on Plaça de Catalunya has a big selection of all types of kitchenware on the 5th floor. Departments stores are all well and good if you’re there for other things too. But I want that specialist store that is, well, a bit special I guess. And plus, who wants to traipse up to the 5th floor, especially when the Catalans don’t quite seem to have grasped basic escalator etiquette. Worth a visit though if you’re there.

Gràcia and beyond…

I’ve been to a couple of great little shops in Gràcia but I can’t remember the names of them. I’m sure there are plenty more around town as well. The old town is full of ferreteria’s (hardware shops) where you can get all kinds of paella pans and the like. But the shops above are definitely worth a visit.

So, let me know you’re favourite kitchen shop in Barcelona by commenting below. Personally, I can’t get enough of them!

  • I love my kitchen shops but am less of a gadget fan. However, I positively drool over a Magimix and the Henckels knife shop.
    Also, you don’t need a macaroon making kit, just a baking sheet and a piping bag and you’ll be done. I’ll email you a recipe.

  • They do every kind of sugar, you’ll have enough caster sugar to keep you going for a year.
    A way to get round the caster sugar problem is to put it in a food processor and pulse for a min to make it finer. I also find Condis granulated sugar is finer than the other shops anyway.

  • I’d also recommend a knives shop called ‘Cuchilleria Barcelona’ in ‘Calle Aragon 303’. I visited Barcelona few weeks ago and I loved this store.. they have a huge selection of quality kitchen knives.. spanish first brands like Arcos and other like Global or Kasumi.

  • Excellent Chris, thank you. I’ll check it out.

  • Casa Gay (yes, really) on Roger de Lluria is always worth a visit. It’s a trade shop so expect chaotic scenes as you collect tickets from one counter then wait to be served elsewhere, then again to pay, stuck waiting behind a restaurateur with a credit account and a complicated tax bill to negotiate. But… the upside is trade price, professional quality kitchen and tableware. You’ll never NEED a 1m-high stick blender, but once you’ve seen one, you’ll want want one. Because gadgets.

  • Hi there,

    Great website. I was just wondering if you have found a vegetable spiralizer in any of the above mentioned kitchen shops. And if so, can you please advise me as to which one? Have searched high and low.

    Looking forward to hearing back from you.

    Natasha.

    • Hi Tash, vegetable spiralizers I do not know about I’m afraid. But I would suggest you try Gadgets & Cuina. And maybe print out one from the internet to save trying to explain it. :)

  • Where is best to buy a Raclette?

    • Not sure John I’m afraid. I’ve never come across one, but then I haven’t been looking for one either. Out of the shops above I’d try Darna and El Corte Inglés first.

  • Hi,

    I’m looking for an Oster pro blender/foodprocessor in Barcelona. It has both a blender and a food processor attachment, so you can switch depending on what you’re making.

    Does anyone know where they sell such items?
    I’m hoping to get it today so I can still make a fresh batch of hummus and gazpacho for this week ^_^

    Thanks

  • Hello,
    I was hoping someone could help me out. I am looking for a Nutribullet, a kind of blender.
    Hope to hear from you! Liz

  • Hi, I’m looking for professional japanese knives. Would you know of any other shops apart from the one mentioned? Joel

  • Hi Rob,
    I was wondering if you know a place in BCN where I can buy a coffee maker? It can either be an online shop or not.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Rita, I don’t I’m afraid. If you’re on Facebook search for the Barcelona Expats or Ingredients Hunters Barcelona groups and try asking in either of those. I’m sure you’ll get some useful answers.

  • Very useful piece. I will surely check out your recommendations. Sometimes it’s difficult locating some of these things in a new far away land…lol
