Kitchenware Records was an independent record label based in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. It was founded in 1982 by Keith Armstrong, Paul Ludford and Phil Mitchell, and was originally part of The Soul Kitchen, an artist collective and nightclub.[1] Of this current roster of artists, Editors are currently the most successful, having gained platinum status with their album The Back Room, which also reached number two on the UK Albums Chart. The band's second album, An End Has a Start, brought the label its first UK number-one album upon its 25th anniversary in 2007.[1]

Sirens, The Motorettes, Prefab Sprout, The Kane Gang and Kate Walsh have also had chart success in the UK.

The company dissolved in 2017.
