What is KitchenBoy.net about? Our goal is to provide useful reviews and informative commentary about new or existing kitchen products.
Where Do I Find The Information? The Product Discussions category houses detailed reviews and information about the tools and equipment you use in the kitchen. A summary of the most recent posts are found below with links to the full length articles.
Following the “Latest Articles” section, “Kitchen News & Other Fun Stuff” provides culinary news and kitchen product give-away offers. These offers are typically links to other blogs or manufacturer websites and most of the time, ones that I will enter myself.
The Other Musings category contains press releases, kitchenware news and other miscellaneous Kitchen Boy commentary.
Favorite Kitchen Shops is a list of fun and exciting kitchen shops from around the world. We started the list and it has been expanded by submissions from readers like you. I love a good kitchen shop and am always interested in learning about new places to haunt when I travel.
Questions? If you have a question about a culinary product or need an answer to a kitchenware concern, drop us an email. Many of the posts on this site were inspired by reader questions.
