Yeah, you can't have 2 WP themes in one site. Better why not create another site (Rubix is fine too) and link it to your cooking website.

Oh... I haven't think about that, that is good idea.....But I'm thinking of bring all ranking or people in one website....
Thanks for your great idea.

Am not sure if you can build 2 themes in one. As far as I know, the option is to create another site and write about /promote those products in your current site (same as you do for any aff.program). or work the other way, create an e-commerce site (for your new site) and add Blog section (to have your cooking blogs).
Do update us the solution you took.

Thanks Snaaaz for your support and concern. After I had read Ultimateless explanation and advises (down below), I had made decision that.... I will open another website for products.

Thanks again

You can have more then one page on your site.. in fact you should. Each page you do can have different things you focus on if that is your wish. But unfortunately you can only choose one theme layout from WordPress for the entire site. You whole site will be set up the same way

If you're referring to the site's wordpress theme, then no -- only one wordpress theme at a time can be active on any given website.

If you're referring to theme as a product focus, then yes -- you can add a separate section to your site for a different but related take on your niche.

Thanks Bob for your quick reply, but could you please explain more specific about 'If you're referring to theme as a product focus...' I'm not quite understand.....Do you mean if I choose product theme..?
Thanks Bob

One of the themes (focus) of your site is your cooking area. I'm assuming that you're discussing recipes and ingredients among other things.

If you add a second area on cookware products to your site, you'll be expanding the site to attract people interested in both subjects.

I wanted to point out that doing this is perfectly fine since the two topics are very closely related. (You won't, though, be able to have two different wordpress themes operating on your site at the same time.)
