Quality Over Everything!
I am writing this after 6-8 months of daily use/washes and the quality of these aprons is something to be noted. I paid half the amount on an apron from amazon that fell apart after just 1-2 months. These aprons are definitely worth the investment if you work in a commercial kitchen. I am thrilled with my aprons, thank you Hedley & Bennett!
Professional, Functional & Attractive!
This apron is professional, functional—and even attractive! It’s sturdy and well-made, fits great, and it has pockets, too. I read about Hedley & Bennett aprons in “The Strategist” and I’m glad I did, Also, their customer service department is the best on the planet. If I could give them more than 5 stars, I would.
This apron is made of quality materials. It is extremely functional and at the same time very comfortable. The fabric is heavy duty but still soft and pliable making it easy and non-binding while dashing around a busy kitchen. I have 2 H&B aprons and they have been game changers in the kitchen. The colors and prints available make it difficult to not have a different one for each day of the week.
“Top chefs across the globe wear H&B, so putting one on is basically like Superman slipping into his cape."
“The favorite among our testers, this apron is comfortable, soft (yet sturdy), gender neutral, and adjustable (to fit a wide range of sizes).”
“Hedley & Bennett aprons are universally adored by chefs.”
“As practical as it is pretty.”
