WELCOME BACK At last, here we are again at the wonderful Royal Lancaster with so many friends and colleagues from across all sectors of our industry, coming together for the 22nd Excellence in Housewares Awards. Despite the fun we had on our multi-screen party rooms at our 21st – the digital Excellence in Housewares Awards 2020 - nothing can beat being together again in person to celebrate the achievements of our industry in style.

A

s the last two years have played out, through hardships and losses, changes and challenges, the housewares industry has never seemed so important. Congratulations to all EIH 21 finalists – for your creativity, ingenuity, innovations, and dedication to enabling and empowering the Great British public to cook and entertain, organise, and appreciate our kitchens and homes. We have a myriad of amazing products to marvel at on this Awards night: every one of them is featured in detail in this brochure. With so many fabulous retailer finalists in these pages, we will be highlighting many of their inspirational stories over the forthcoming issues of Progressive Housewares magazine, as well as on HousewaresNews.net. The Excellence in Housewares Awards are an industry-wide collaboration, so we would like to say some very big ‘thank yous.’ Firstly, thank you to suppliers for entering so many new products, and for all those that used their expertise and insights to nominate retailers across our wide span of awards categories. Thank you to retailers who sent in wonderful submissions, showcasing the extremely high standards of excellence

We’re delighted that some of you found some fantastic new products along the way.

In addition to the category sponsors, of course, our thanks goes to Exposé Travel for sponsoring the Casino, with the chance to win a trip to Chicago, and Tefal for adding extra sparkle to the ‘Tefal Tipple’ drinks reception.

2021 FINALISTS

Circulon Steelshield C-Series FROM MEYER GROUP Meyer introduces the Circulon Steelshield C-Series range. Discover a non-stick with staying power. Meyer’s pioneering new cookware range, including a variety of stainless steel non-stick pans, cooks like steel and cleans like nonstick. Engineered for fearless cooks, SteelShield’s tough peaks protect non-stick grooves, so your nonstick coating stays where it should— for good. No more scratched stainless steel non-stick cookware. No more endless scrubbing and no more flaking non-stick.

Lodge Cast Iron Finex FROM EDDINGTONS The new Lodge Finex Collection from Eddingtons is a state-of-the-art range that has been added to Lodge’s already high-quality, cast iron collection. A key feature to most of the products in this range is the ergonomic ‘speed cool’ handle as a coil prevents heat from the pan reaching your hand as you cook. The patented octagonal shape of the skillets makes this product range unique and practical with its multi-pour design. The Finex collection is designed to grill or sear meat and vegetables and is handseasoned with organic flax seed oil.

Copper Induction FROM SAMUEL GROVES Investment in a Samuel Groves 4-ply Copper pan means its future proof. Not only are they perfect for use in today’s kitchen, they will be perfect for kitchens of the future as they’ve been optimised for use on induction hobs, moreover they are handmade and built to last. Uniquely, the British manufacturer Samuel Groves has developed a new process so that its pans can be used on all hobs and essentially induction hobs.

FROM LE CREUSET

Pictured is the new and improved Mermaid Hard Anodised Oven and Bakeware range from Samuel Groves.

This hard wearing, long lasting range, isn’t just for use in the oven, it can be used on hobs (with the exception of induction) and under the grill, and you can even use your metal utensils.

Le Creuset's best-loved non-stick cookware collection is now four times stronger.

Made from high quality 18/8 stainless steel and with a silicone lid with steam vent these dishes rewrite the rules of food storage and food preparation – they are 100% microwave safe, oven safe, fridge and freezer safe and dishwasher friendly. These dishes are multi-functional and completely versatile making them perfect for cooking, eating, freezing and reheating and also help consumers cut down on food waste.

FROM WINNINGTON HOUSEWARES Less weight and a better performance is achieved in the SAVEUR Selects Cast Iron Voyage Series by upgrading conventional cast iron lids to double walled stainless steel. Between the double walls air with a lower thermal conductivity than metal insulates the contents whilst keeping the handle cool. This simple advancement increases the efficiency of the cookware while reducing the overall weight, innovatively elevating your cooking experience.

FROM STUDIO WILLIAM WELCH In the new packaging design, Studio William Welch wanted to incorporate an inclusive sensory experience for both visually impaired and people with regular vision. Secondly, to create a cutlery industry first: 100% compostable packaging uses natural materials, waterbased printing inks and water-based glues. The concept created by William Welch, founder and designer of Studio William Cutlery, is a braille embossed natural brown cardboard giftbox lid, inviting user interaction to read the braille explanation of the box contents, or simply see the braille as graphic minimal design.

2021 FINALISTS

Culinare Magican

Good Grips Peelers

FROM DKB HOUSEHOLD

FROM OXO

FROM NORDIC WARE

The Culinare Magican entered the housewares market in 1982 and has become a "must have" can opener for millions of households ever since. It is estimated that over 18+ million units have been sold in various markets since launch. Many consumers say that when their Magican finally wears out, they always and only look to replace it with another Magican, which is surely the true sign of an icon. The range consists of the classic Magican and the Magican Auto with added functionality.

The award-winning OXO Good Grips Swivel Peeler is engineered to stay comfortable through fast, repetitive use. It’s perfect for prepping tough-skinned fruits and vegetables like apples and cucumbers. Two sharp, Japanese stainless steel blades flex to peel large areas with each stroke. The easy-grip handle is designed to work for lefties and righties, and it stays non-slip, even when wet. A durable, built-in potato eyer carves out blemishes and the handle includes a hole for hanging storage. Named for its shape, the Y Peeler also features a sharp, stainless steel blade and a soft, comfortable handle that cushions your hand.

The Heritage Bundt pan is an iconic design. Designed, manufactured and distributed by Nordic Ware, the pan's classic swirling design is the go to Bundt pan when the occasion calls for over-the-top elegance. Made of heavyweight cast aluminium, the pan provides even heat distribution whilst the fluted centre ensures an even bake. Nordic Ware's patented PFOA-Free non-stick coating allows for easy release from the mould to give a bake a picture-perfect finish every time. The multi-purpose pan can also be used for jellies and frozen deserts.

Nest 9 FROM JOSEPH JOSEPH Each item in this clever nesting bowl set neatly stacks together to take up less space and making them easier to find when you need them. The set includes: 4.5L mixing bowl, 3L colander, 1.65L sieve, 0.5L mixing bowl and five measuring cups. The space-saving design allows individual elements to stack neatly together. The mixing bowl has a non-slip base, wide carry handles and a handy pouring spout. The 0.5L mixing bowl includes metric and imperial measurements inside for added convenience. The set also includes a stainless-steel mesh sieve and large colander.

Heritage Bundt Pan

Peugeot Salt and Pepper Mills

Prestige Pressure Cooker

Mason Cash Pudding Basin FROM THE RAYWARE GROUP Mason Cash has been manufacturing pudding basins since the early 1800s. The basins come in seven sizes and have become a staple in kitchens as preparation and serving bowls. A pudding must be sealed before steaming. The rim of the Mason Cash Pudding Basin is shaped for this purpose. The vented base of the pudding basin allows bubbles to escape from underneath the basin, preventing it from tipping over in a pan. The classic shape of the basin allows easy release of the pudding after steaming, giving a pudding its distinct shape.

Sustainable Wooden Spoon

FROM BURTON MCCALL

FROM MEYER GROUP

FROM T&G
