Eager to develop a specialised cook shop in the beautiful border city of Carlisle,
Rod and Carol Abel opened The Cookware Company on Victoria Viaduct in September 1991.
With Rod’s experience as a buyer for Jenners and Studio One in Edinburgh and Carol’s customer service experience in the banking industry, their product knowledge, excellent service and wide selection of brands such as Stellar, Le Creuset, Sabatier, Global and Kitchencraft soon established them as a “must Visit” shop
Often described as an Aladdin’s Cave, we carry a wide variety of merchandise
The Cookware Company remains the only independent, family run cook shop in Carlisle and over the years has strived to source products that are new and innovative as well as the firm kitchen favourites
