Green Cuisine is a shop for people who feel comfortable spending more than £10 on a saucepan and want their kitchenware to last. Great quality pots, pans, knives and everything else you might require to throw together a lovely dinner are available here and no, they aren't cheap. I'll admit it's probably time to accept the manky old wok I bought for university needs an upgrade, and this is just the place to do it properly - though I have my limits. Posh earthenware pot for £100+? No thanks!
I enjoy browsing through the nifty utensils of a weekend, and have bought a few bits and bobs recently including a cool one-handed pepper grinder and some good kitchen scales. Having discovered the value of garlic crushers at a friend's house this weekend I have plans to avail myself of one of those too, so another trip to Green Cuisine is due.
I can't recommend the staff, though - each time I've gone two young girls have been working the single till, and if there's someone in front of you the spare one will studiously look at what her colleague's doing (though won't actually help her in any way) instead of acknowledging your presence in the queue. I really hate that.
Posh pans are something that I need to get into. My pan is rusty and it looks like the handle is going to fall off at any moment. It is a surely a fire hazard. Imminent death is written all over it.
Green Cuisine sells posh pans that cost at least £50 a pop. Although these prices are extraordinarily expensive, they're worth it. You won't have to worry about your pan breaking in the midst of cooking or it bursting into flames while you're simmering.
If you need anything related to cooking, places, oven mitts, baking dishes, aprons, stirrers, shakers, come here for high quality but be prepared to spend major cash.
For the house where everything has to be well designed, modern and sleek, Green Cuisine will fit the bill.
Specialising in colourful, designer kitchen utensils, cooking pans, dishes and silicone cake tins, nothing here is cheap. The products are however, well thought out and unlike anything else that you will find on the market.
Bar the price, the only negative thing to be said about Green Cuisine is the uninformed staff and disorganised running of the shop. There is no one who can explain the products or offer help should you need it, which is service that you come to expect, particularly when shopping in high end stores.
If you can afford it then you will probably be able to find something to suit aesthetically and functionally from their limited range. Whether it is worth the cost is a personal opinion.
More of a gift shop for 'foodies' than a place to buy proper cookware. The selection of items looks pretty but is poor and overpriced, and they lack the sort of specific kitchen wares that you would expect to find in a shop like this. I have not been for some time, but on my last visit there the staff was iincredibly rude (when asked about a specific item I only received a sharp No and then I suppose that I became invisible for her, because she did not even reply to my Goodbye!).
