At the 15th Excellence in Housewares Awards, which took place at the Lancaster Hotel, Hyde Park, on October 8, Robert Welch Designs picked up two awards in two categories for two of its innovative products.
The brand picked up the Excellence in Homewares award for its Signature Cookbook and Tablet Stand and the Top of the Table award for its Radford Gourmet 5-pce Cheese Knife Set.
The award-winning Signature Cookbook & Tablet Stand is an innovative design with fully-adjustable arm allowing for use with all sizes of tablet, book and even single sheet recipes, and making it a practical addition to the modern kitchen. It is easily assembled and dismantled for compact storage and boasts non-slip feet to keep it secure on kitchen worktops.
The award-winning Radford Gourmet 5-pce Cheese Set is a set of five hollow handled cheese pieces from the Radford Cutlery range made from the finest 18/10 stainless steel in a bright finish. The set includes a hard cheese knife; an all-purpose cheese knife with pronged tip; a soft cheese knife with holes to prevent sticking; a Stilton scoop for taking portions from a wheel of Stilton; and a Chisel knife with flat edge for cutting hard, crumbly cheese. All are presented in an oak box for safe storage.
Speaking after the awards, Rupert Welch, managing director said: “The team was delighted when the Robert Welch name was called for the first time and then positively ecstatic when the second award was announced!
“We have had past success in the ‘Cutting Edge’ category with our Signature knife range and it’s great that our new extended Signature Kitchen Collection has been given recognition by the jury. To see a classic design like Radford gaining recognition is also very exciting for us. It reinforces the company’s ethos of designing timeless products for the modern customer”.
