Supply's stock in solid demand

When you find a treasure, there's always the temptation to keep it to yourself. Fortunately, there's enough to go around at Affordable Restaurant Equipment & Supply (5744 E Colonial Drive; 407-273-1117).

Whether the aim is to outfit a kitchen in professional style or look for cute dishes, this is a gold mine of new and used industrial appliances, restaurant supplies and cooking gadgets. Pick up a few sushi boats or a santoku knife from Japan, a pizza oven or a set of chef's whites.

Affordable says they'll match or beat any prices you find elsewhere, but that'll be a hard thing to do. I spotted a $4,000 professional Southbend gas stove for under $1,400, great paring knives for $2.50, and an industrial Hamilton Beach blender that was so cheap I wanted two. Not to mention the copper home beer brewery for a sudsy $15,000.
