Buying on the holidays

Scour the ads during labor and Memorial Day and keep abreast of when items go on sale. Try to avoid waiting until items are broken and you are in desperate need of replacing them. This is particularly true of appliances which often have large sales and reductions on certain holidays.

Buying in sets or individual pieces

For many pieces of kitchen equipment there are options to buy sets of kitchen equipment that can be purchased together at discounted prices. Examples are kitchen knife sets and pots and pan sets. Before buying a set you should not only compare the price of the parts separately when compared to the set, but also the pieces themselves to see if you are even going to use the set in total or if you can save by only buying a few pieces in the set. Typically, sets do provide a real value, but only if you use the individual pieces. Take some time to think about the various pieces that you use most frequently and go from there.

Think Long Term

Think about the items that you use frequently and then try to find quality pieces of kitchen equipment for those individual items. You do not have to buy the highest quality parts of every single piece of equipment and it is often a waste to do so, especially for a casual chef, but find the two or three things that you use frequently, such as a frying pan or sauce pan, and buy a quality piece that will last a long time.

Visit a Restaurant Supply Store

One place that can be helpful to shop is an restaurant supply store. These stores supply restaurants with the items that they need for their business and will commonly sell items that are durable and take a real beating. Prices are significantly cheaper than what you would otherwise find in a retail store and make for a great way to find unusual and professional kitchen equipment that you can adapt for your home kitchen.

Visit Outlet Stores

One way to score real bargains is by visiting an outlet store location of a big brand that sells kitchen equipment. Many outlet stores offer real discounts on kitchen equipment sometimes due to minor scratches that you would get after a day of using the equipment anyway. Buying from these outlet stores can result in big prices breaks.
