Frequently Asked Questions

Often referred to as smallwares, kitchen supplies cover everything that a commercial kitchen would need to function effectively. What a kitchen exactly needs varies between restaurants, but at minimal you can expect this to always include a few items such as cookware, kitchen knives, and cutting boards. Both front- and back-of-house items are covered in this category.

Depending on the restaurant, necessary items can vary all the way from wine buckets and bread slicers to condiments and spices.

The answer to this question depends on your restaurant’s specific needs. It can be helpful to ask a few questions to help decide, such as:

  • What types of dishes will you serve?
  • What equipment do you need to prepare those dishes?
  • What additional items will you need for serving those dishes and satisfying customers?

Be sure to consider both front- and back-of-house needs when answering these questions. At a minimum, most kitchens will do well to at least have a basic supply of kitchen knives and utensils, pots and pans, safety textiles like pot holders and oven mitts, thermometers to meet food-safety protocols, and dishware for serving customers. Disposable gloves are another important item that should not be overlooked to help reduce the risk of cross-contamination.

If you are an individual looking to stock your personal kitchen, the above questions still apply, but imagine your family members and friends as your “customers” when answering.

While many stores sell kitchen supplies, the quality varies greatly between distributors. Buying the wrong product will make your cooking and cleaning process more difficult, and items might break easily, wasting money.

American Paper & Supply focuses on stocking commercial kitchen supplies, which means they are tested for professional use, constructed for durability, and generally easier to clean. Thankfully, when you shop with us, you do not need to be a restaurant to purchase these products, allowing everyone regardless of background to give their kitchen a new edge before preparing their next dish.
