The Hogwarts kitchens is an enormous, high-ceilinged room, as large as the Great Hall above it. Mounds of glittering brass pots and pans are heaped around the stone walls, and there is a great brick fireplace at one end of the room
The entrance to the kitchens is behind a painting of a gigantic silver fruit-bowl. When the huge green pear in the fruit bowl is tickled, it turns into a large green door handle, through which you can enter the room.
There are four long wooden tables that stand in the kitchens, which are positioned exactly beneath the four house tables in the Great Hall above. Harry guesses that before dinner they would be laden with dishes that are then sent up through the ceiling to their counterparts above.
