Francis and Angus Charles, owners of Chef’s Ware, Hastings – which scooped the Most Promising Newcomer Award at The Excellence in Housewares Awards – predict six bestselling products in the run-up to Christmas:
“Cast iron cookware from Le Creuset
Without a doubt a great seller for us as now we have been established for two year customers are coming back to build up their Le Creuset collections. Besides the cast iron classics, Le Creuset’s colourful stoneware mugs are also a popular gift.
Kai Shun Knives from Taylors Eye Witness
High quality knives that make an excellent gift for serious home cooks – including the carving set in the run up to Christmas.
MasterClass Cast Aluminium Casserole from KitchenCraft
Casseroles are a winter favourite and this is lightweight with a tough non-stick coating and a self basting lid.
Anonlon Novel Copper Frypans from Meyer Group
These are steady sellers throughout the year but would make a perfect Christmas gift for foodies.
Aprons, tablecloths and oven mitts from Dexam
Customers appreciate the good quality fabric of Dexam’s textile range. We are now stocking extra long aprons by popular demand as men often do more cooking over Christmas. Dexam provides a wide variety of designs so we have something for everyone.
Cole and Mason Mills from DKB
A good range of mills from a bestselling brand. To encourage gifting, Cole and Mason put Christmas sleeves on its packaging, which is a very nice touch.”
