About Us

APPLEWOOD The Kitchen Shop first opened in the Queens Arcade in 1991.  Since then has become a central city icon, known for its warm, boutique style atmosphere and friendly, knowledgeable staff. 

Providing New Zealand with an extensive range of exclusive, quality kitchenware, cookware, tools and accessories, for both domestic and professional chefs who come to APPLEWOOD The Kitchen Shop to experience, enjoy, ask questions and tell stories.
We aim to inspire the chef in all of us.

At APPLEWOOD The Kitchen Shop we aim to source high quality, functional and innovative kitchen equipment at a reasonable price.

We research and select products that are useful and of high quality, most of which have been used in our own homes before being put on our shop’s shelves. As long as they are used correctly, our merchandise is perfect for everyday use and will last the test of time.

As well as purchasing a good quality product at a reasonable price, it is also important to us that our customers receive the right advice for the use of a product, before you leave the shop. As well as this, we endeavour to maintain a high level of after sales service should anything go wrong.

At APPLEWOOD The Kitchen Shop we are knowledgeable about the products we sell. We maintain this knowledge with regular training, learning and using items in the shop. Thus, we all have hands on appreciation of everything we stock.

Our philosophy is, if we do not know the answer to your questions or have the items you request, we will do our very best to find them for you.
