What is KitchenBoy.net about? Our goal is to provide useful news, reviews and informative commentary about new or existing housewares products as they relate to cooking, baking and beverages.

Where Do I Find The Information? The Product Discussions category houses news, reviews and information about the various products you use to prepare and serve a meal. A summary of the most recent posts are found below with links to the full length articles.

Following the “Latest Product Articles” section, “Kitchen News & Other Fun Stuff” provides miscellaneous culinary news and kitchen product give-away offers. These offers are typically links to manufacturer or other culinary websites, ones that I will enter myself.

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 kitchen related item, drop us an email. Many of the posts on this site were inspired by reader questions.
