The roll-call of products that have reached the finals of the Excellence in Housewares Awards 2018 has been announced.

Organised by trade magazine ‘Progressive Housewares’ in conjunction with the Cookshop & Housewares (CHA) division of trade body bira (British Independent Retailers Association), the awards recognise and reward the achievements of UK housewares products (and retailers) over the past year.

Hundreds of housewares products launched over the past 12 months were judged by a panel of more than 25 housewares buyers last week, including representatives from John Lewis, Steamer Trading Cookshop, Lakeland, Blue Diamond Garden Centres, Borough Kitchen, Debenhams, Tesco, Essentials, Fenwick, Harrods, Harts of Stur, Home Hardware, Kitchen Range, Kooks Unlimited, Leekes, Lords At Home, Potters Cookshop, Prep Cookshop, Richard Dare and Trevor Mottram.
