Walking into the showroom at Ottawa’s venerable C.A. Paradis kitchen supply store, it’s easy to be dazzled by the seemingly endless parade of shining pots, gleaming knives, fine china, sparkling glassware, cunning tools and clever gadgets.

It’s also one of the few places local cooks can walk in and find the top-rated Thermapen thermometer, or the coveted Dualit toaster, an award-winning, handmade-in-the-UK toaster with a true vintage style that has remained unchanged since 1954.
