Etymology[edit]

From Middle English panetrie, from Old French paneterie, related to Latin panis (bread).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

pantry (plural pantries)

  1. A small room, closet, or cabinet usually located in or near the kitchen, dedicated to food storage and/or storing kitchenware, like a larder, but smaller. Since the pantry is not typically temperature-controlled (unlike a refrigerator or root cellar), the foods stored in a pantry are usually shelf-stable staples such as grains, flours, and preserved foods.
