Yesterday I decided to go to JB Prince in Manhattan to buy some chocolate molds and some pastry toys. I went totally nuts seeing all the kitchen gadgets, equipment and tools for the professional chef. Every imaginable kitchen tool can be found here. Most importantly, JB Prince carries top of the line, superior quality brands such as the: Robot Coupe Hand blenders, Japanese mandolines, Silpats, Misono Knives, Ateco cutters, Chocolate molds from France, Refractometers, Digital Thermometers and much more.

As a baker, I was very happy and pleased with the wide selection of pastry/baking stuff (who doesn't want Silpats, metal cutters, flexipan molds and every size and shape of ice cream scoops) and the gamut of kitchen necessities that you would want in your kitchen cabinet. As these gadgets are precision tools, I must warn you that prices are rather steep, but remember they're long-term investments.

Also, it's worth pointing out that JB Prince is not visibly located along the street. The store is located inside a nondescirpt Midtown office building, on the 11th floor and behold JB Prince. Even if you don't have any intentions of buying something, you'll find yourself carrying a loot bag!
