Sur La Table, French for On the table, first opened in Seattle's Pike Place Market in 1972, selling gourmet cooking paraphernalia. 42 years later the store is as active as ever, with over 100 retail locations around the country and an impressive online store. With the high quality of brands and merchandise, and their emphasis on cooking classes and special events, Sur La Table remains a great place to browse for high-end tools and cookware.
You can expect prices to be higher than Amazon or discount retailers, but also expect great customer service. They also offer a gift registry and cooking classes.
