Capital District Free Kitchen Exchange swap at Honest Weight

kitchen tools in metal holderWe'd never heard of a swap like this before, but it sounds a like a good, fun idea: Honest Weight is hosting a kitchen tool swap with the Capital District Free Kitchen Exchange February 29 at 5:30 pm. Blurbage:

Come meet other enthusiastic cooks in the region, get rid of some of your lesser-used kitchen tools and equipment or pick up something you've been looking for. All kitchen items must be in good working order and offered for free.
The Capital District Free Kitchen Exchange started as a public Facebook Group that connects talented (but financially strapped) cooks in the 518 area with free kitchen appliances and goods that others are no longer in need of anymore.

If you do a lot of cooking (and maybe even if you don't), you probably have some sort of kitchen tool stuck in the back of a cabinet that never gets used. The pasta machine you got that one year after declaring you were only going to use homemade pasta. The crockpot that seemed like a solution for easy dinners. That extra grater that always sits off by itself, wishing that someday it could meet nice a cheese... but never does.

The swap is free to attend but registration is required (see the first link above) -- you can just show up, see the organizer's comment below.

(Thanks, Chris)


Hi all,

This is Angela, the organizer of the Capital District Free Kitchen Exchange. I am very excited that the group is picking up traction and appreciate AOA spreading the word about this event. I just wanted to clarify that although the event link has a place to register, registration is not required to attend. This is meant to be a casual event open to anyone who is interested in attending.

Also, I will be raffling off some fun prizes for people who attend the event and donate and/or claim kitchen items. There is no cost for the event or raffle.

And if you look us up on Facebook, I usually post all of the latest information/contests/prizes there.

Hope to see some of you on Monday!
