I bought this unusual item from there on one of my visits, and it is so handy when baking dough for bases, and it is an item I have not seen before or since.

They have many specials and I can spend half a day in this interesting shop. Staff are helpful and there is plenty of off street parking outside. They have stores in Melville, Cockburn, Joondalup, Cannington, Malaga and Midland.
They also offer a knife sharpening service which I have used, and my knives came back totally different - so sharp, that it is something I will have done regularly.
They are Perth's largest stockists of MasterClass bakeware, which is PFOA, PTFE and BPA free, freezer, fridge and dishwasher safe and have a 20-year warranty, with a 5-year warranty on the non-stick coating.
There is so much choice in this shop that you are sure to find something both as a gift, and if you are anything like me, you will walk out with something for yourself, even if you did not intend buying anything!
They also have many upmarket items which are not readily available in other shops. They stock some of the well-known brands as well as some excellent items that are not so well-known.
Lady Kitchener is a Perth icon and they describe themselves as "every woman's and kitchen savvy man's dream"!
Situated at 50 Bay View Terrace, Claremont, in Old Theatre Lane, they have been established for about 30 years and have never wavered in the quality and the unusual, quirky products they carry! Although not a huge shop, it has a lot cleverly crammed into it. Lady Kitchener is perhaps more of an up market shop, and they have many excellent gift ideas, as well as items for everyday use. They have many novelty items that you will not find elsewhere.
They have a range of excellent non-stick saucepans and frypans including the Diamond series from the Woll German range. I have a whole set of these and they are far better than any others on the market, as you can use metal utensils with them, cook on high which you cannot do with any other fat free pans, and they have a detachable handle which is fantastic when you want to put the pan in the oven and also when you want to wash it.
House also offer a free gift wrapping service and gift registry, and claim "their staff are well trained to answer questions on most aspects of the products we have on offer and if they don't know they will find out for you".
Last but by no means, least is David Jones, in Perth city. They have some delightful kitchenware, and a lot of upmarket goods, as well as thousands of everyday items. David Jones constantly have sales, as well as selling all sorts of electrical items, including larger ones.
They have quality items and one of these is this exquisite Zen kettle.
David Jones also do a gift registry and this has become very popular due to their large range and quality items.
Pick up some beautiful crockery/cutlery when they are on sale, and you will not regret it, as they carry some of the high class brands such as Royal Doulton, Rosenthal, Alessi, Georg Jensen, Spode, Wedgewood, Marinoni, and Christina Re (which is not available anywhere else).
You can see more of David Jones' huge range at this site, and also on this page you can see their range of electrical items – why not grab a coffee machine so you can make your own cappuccino any time you want, and while they are on special!
Even if you do not need anything for the kitchen, visiting any of these shops is quite a fascinating adventure. And I always find things I "must have" though I have been told I get my wants and my needs mixed up!
