The oldest kitchenware shop in Paris


E.Dehillerin, founded in 1820, has two floors with everything you could ever dream of having in your kitchen

Paris has an unmissable address for anyone who loves kitchen gadgets, whether you are an amateur or a professional. E.Dehillerin is a real temptation and can satisfy even those who don’t know how to fry an egg. Founded in 1820, the place is a trip back in time and has changed very little since it opened. The place is reminiscent of those old hardware stores, with clerks who have been there for decades.




Among the objects are huge pans made of various materials, such as copper, enameled iron, steel, knives with all kinds of blades and handles, silverware and utensils that you may not even know what they are for. The shop was a favorite of the famous Julia Child, the first female chef to have her own television show in the 1960s in the United States.

The presenter and chef Raíza Costa was present and told something about the shop on her Instagram profile, which is huge and retains much of its original architecture. Just look at the size of the wire whisk (or whisk) you purchased, click play below:

The story of E.Dehillerin

The structure was founded in 1825 by Eugene de Hillerin, heir to a noble Parisian family, but who had lost everything during the French Revolution. He used his family’s good name to start a kitchen equipment business.

Although the business began in 1825, the business moved to where it is today, on Coquillière street, about a 10 minute walk from the Louvre Museum, in 1890. The shop facade is beautiful, all in green, large some of the original architecture was retained and is well preserved to this day, with solid wood shelves. The price verification system is 100% analogue: each product has a label with a code, which must be consulted in a catalog with more than 100 folders.

Despite the ancient architecture and the somewhat archaic system, the product assortment is very large and modern, with very modern kitchen utensils. Additionally, the store also sells online and delivers worldwide, although the real appeal is walking in and spending hours looking at everything.
