Cap Iron has a large selection of Lodge cast iron pots- one of the better brands of cast. Lodge is pre seasoned as well.
Has anybody seen a musubi press in town? Usually made of plastic, rectangle, used for pressing the rice and SPAM delicacy that is popular in Hawaii.

Sorry about the delay in posting this, but working alot so I am either sleeping or on my couch :redface:

I'll deffintly check out capital iron. That's great if they sell fabrics and cooking stuff, that takes care of two things I don't have to look for. I don't mind paying more for kitchen stuff, but I cook a lot, and I literally donated almost everything to goodwill back in Nova Scotia, so right now I need to just replace everything, I'll worry about getting high quality later. All I brought with me is my aluminum angel cake pan :( and two skillets donated by mom, moms are awesome like that!

Thanks everyone for responding.

I should mention that if you ever need a complete kitchen for next to nothing, check out the Tuesday afternoon auction at Lund's on Fort Street. Sometimes they'll have the entire contents of a kitchen including the junk drawer all boxed up ready for bidding. I saw a box once that even included someone's powerful prescription medicine.

They also have nails, bolts, washers and nuts in galvanized, brass and stainless, as well as fine-thread - all that you can purchase by the unit. Three bolts, three nuts and two washers? No problem.

They also have split-pins and springs, and rubber grommets, O-rings, all kinds of stuff you can buy one at a time.


This is great about Capital Iron. Those damn box store packages have ruined the hardware store. Gotta love being able to buy just as much as you need.

Now is a good time to go there for rainwear.

And now it's open. Pretty big. Seems weird to not be shopping with creaking floors and well worn stairs to climb.

Store St. Expansion?

 

Is this a new Capital Iron building?  If so I wonder if it will house more than just their seasonal patio / outdoor stuff?  I think that merchandise is currently stored in those containers during the winter.   Also, what will they do with the empty lot that will be freed up?  You can see the Capital Iron sign and some of their patio furniture in the fenced area by the orange cones.

Since there is that newly paved access road, the lot that is currently used for their outdoor stuff could become their customer parking lot.

I can confirm that it's just for storage, so not an extension of the store.

They were using it as an extension of the store this past weekend... had patio furniture and clearance items in there.

Hmm, go figure, I guess they changed their mind.
