The Czech national, born in Prague in 1929, is a guest of Remoska S.R.O: a company based in the Czech Republic that will be exhibiting at stand EH416.
Remoska will show brand new products as well as its eponymous electric cooker, which, it said, ‘has won a place in three million kitchens in the past 60 years’.
Lady Milena Grenfell-Baines plays a special role in the product’s history because she introduced the Remoska to housewares chain Lakeland.
The retailer explained: “Almost 20 years ago, following a tip-off [from Lady Milena Grenfell-Baines], we started to sell a simple, Czech-made cooker that no one else had heard of… and what a little treasure we found!
“A one-pot cooker that’s as versatile as a ‘proper’ oven, Remoska cooks, bakes, roasts, even makes puddings, and is positively miserly with electricity. Happy owners tell us they’ve ‘moth-balled’ their ovens because Remoska is so easy and inexpensive to use.
“Made in the Czech Republic since the 1950s, the multi-talented Remoska looks like a pan, but has a clever heating element in the lid and cooks like an oven, if not better, using very little electricity.
“Roast chicken pieces (crispy skin, flesh as soft as butter), succulent lamb chops with golden roasted potatoes, toad-in-the hole and fish bake; toasted sandwiches, baked potatoes, pizzas from frozen, ready meals in their foil dishes; you can even bake light, moist sponge cakes and delicious scones. It’s great for a low-fat fry-up too.
“This energy-saving one-pot wonder will transform the way you cook – not just at home, but anywhere there’s a 240 volt electricity supply, so it’s great for boating holidays, motor homes, caravans and holiday cottages too.”
Exclusively Housewares takes place on June 11 and June 12 at the Business Design Centre in Islington.
