baking pans and other baking utensils in Delhi ..

It's a difficult task for some to attempt baking. Especially in our country. But it becomes all the more difficult if you do not get baking utensils easily in the market. This section of utensils, that is Bakeware, is still an unorganised market even in bigger cities like Delhi. We get a few odd things here and there but finding a one stop shop is still difficult.

Many of us home bakers find it really hard to get something when required . I have myself never found when I search for something. There are very few shops in Delhi where you go and find all types and all sizes of pans, aluminium ones as well as the silicon or the non stick variety.

I have collected my own bake ware by random shopping through the years. Whenever I see a kitchenware shop I can't stop myself from checking it out. Just pick up something or the other and one by one I have collected some functional wares. The silicon pans and muffin pans have still not entered my kitchen as I am quite wary of how safe they are at such high temperature in contact with my food. They definitely look cute in bright colors.

I have seen some unnamed shops in Old Delhi selling good quality bake ware, mostly of he industrial kind but it is a lot of work to go find them again if you need something. Some more shops are there in karol Bagh area, one is Dev Crockery just a few meters from the metro station on the left side if you go to Ajmal khan road. This shop keeps many interesting crockery and bake ware but still lacks the whole spectrum.

Another shop in Karol Bagh area is a cluster of shops named Virmani brothers, passing through the Ajmal Khan road when you reach the Gaffar market area, this cluster of shops will be on your right hand side. The second and the third shop have a good variety of baking wares and other utensils and crockery.

I found this new place in INA market which I had seen once in a disinterested manner, this time I went ahead and inquired about everything and found that they stock quite an impressive collection of things. The place is so convenient as it is just opposite the metro station exit. I can hop on to the metro and go there whenever I wish and wouldn't be disappointed when I need something specific.

The name of he shop is Bharat Crockery Corner and the address is ,
197, Mohan Singh Market, I.N.A. Colony, New Delhi-110 023

Their phone numbers are 011 24617656 and 011 24633108

Have a look on what all they have...

Small tart pans, mini bundt pans and different shapes of mini cake pans too...


And here is a pack of scalloped edge cutters of different sizes for crackers, cookies or pasta etc.


The bigger rectangular and square pans , round and hexagons , pie plates, bread pans and all...


Some more bundt pans, jelly molds and cake pans and jumbo muffin pans...


The brightly colored silicon baking trays and muffin pans...


Many shapes and many colors...


They have synthetic chopping boards in all sizes, even industrial sizes ...


Non stick bread pans in different sizes...you can see a steel steamer in the top left ...


And huge industrial size Teflon baking pans ... good for a large family too..


Details of the size and price...


See some kitchen tools and those colored silicon muffin cups...


Some more tools...


Shaslik sticks and chopsticks...


All types of wooden ladles and spatulas. Balloon whisks of all sizes, very sturdy and even the industrial sizes available...


Some more ladles, all sizes , shapes and wooden handles too. These wooden handle ladles are all industrial sizes...A meat hammer is in the frame too...


It seems like a one stop shop till now. Let's see if I need something specific and do not return empty handed sometime. That is my test for a well stocked store, this one seems to fulfill my criteria. I haven't needed anything that was not there in this store...it would definitely be my shop from now on.

Edited to add : This is not a sponsored post. I keep doing my own surveys and this was one such experience. The address and phone numbers of the shop comes from their business card.
