"He had one brief glimpse of an enormous, high-ceilinged room, large as the Great Hall above it, with mounds of glittering brass pots and pans heaped around the stone walls, and a great brick fireplace at the other end..."
—The Hogwarts kitchens in 1994[src]

The Hogwarts kitchens are located directly under the Great Hall, down the same staircase that leads to the Hufflepuff Common Room. It contains five tables identical to and directly below those in the Great Hall; food must simply be placed upon the tables in the kitchens, and it magically appears on the corresponding tables in the Great Hall above. The kitchens are staffed by over one hundred house-elves including Dobby, Winky[1], and Kreacher (after Harry Potter inherited him and ordered him there in 1996)[2]. Helga Hufflepuff brought the house-elves to work in the kitchens as a way of ensuring they could work without being abused. To gain access to the kitchens, one must tickle the pear painted in a portrait of a bowl of fruit, (It squirms and giggles) which then turns into a green door knob.[1]
