Keith Crowther, owner of La Cookshop, Blagden in Northumberand commented: “Judging the Excellence in Housewares Products was thought provoking and enjoyable, and I’ll be following up on some of the new products I saw. The online portal worked well; I liked dipping in and out of the categories over a couple of days so as not to get judging fatigue. I was also able to take time to look up products I hadn’t seen before, checking out videos to see how they worked.”

First time judge Emmie Brookman from Silver Mushroom told “It was so hard to decide with so many lovely products. I learnt a lot and it was exciting to see new categories. There is a lot of healthy competition out there!”
