What is kitchenware ?

Small kitchen tools, utensils, appliances, gadgets, dishes, implements, cookware, bakeware… also, anything used in the storage, preservation, preparation, serving, cooking, baking, presentation and consumption of food and drink… indoors or outdoors.



You’ll only find pre-owned kitchenware here, not like Ebay that is now mostly brand new items. But you might find unwanted gift bargains. You won’t find annoying adverts popping up all over the place either. Just a neat little shop with one goal – to find the right home for unwanted kitchen equipment.



It’s a simple buy and sell with no joining fee. It’s not an auction – no mind games here, and no last-minute outbidding by computers. Everything is transparent up until you buy. You can see all the comments on a product. So shop at your leisure but If you want it… be quick and press BUY.



You have the control, and the confidence that we do not see any of your confidential information.  We don’t give any personal information out either. We use the most secure, well used payment systems… Paypal, and Stripe.  So, you can use credit cards, debit cards, and Paypal accounts.
