    Will be using these companies now to update my kitchenware, not a lot in my kitchen that is 100 percent British made and British owned. Will also use this site to research all my shopping to keep as much uk based as I can

    Keep up the good work, Rule Britannia

  2. Pam Ballone on March 19, 2020 at 10:38 am

  3. Mrs Dominie Mary Stemp on June 16, 2020 at 4:51 am

    I am trying to find. UK manufacturer to make my unique silicone cooking forks.

  4. Alison R on June 21, 2020 at 10:35 am

    A very helpful article to source British made items.

  5. Angela Stephenson on July 21, 2020 at 11:45 am

    After many hours of searching online for ‘kitchenware made in the UK’ and the results being everything but, I found this article. Exactly what I was looking for, and I will now be able to buy a new frying pan that has been manufactured in GB. To say I am delighted is an understatement! Thank you.

  6. Bev Polf on October 13, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Love this site….now looking for pan sets that are British made and non toxic and this week, ( because this site exists), I will be ordering Richmond Kettle Heritage 7 as its British made, and works on all types of hobs, induction included.

      A few years ago, I found beautiful pastel, made in England enameled steel baking pans by chance at a Home Goods store in Connecticut USA. I’ve been trying to find more but haven’t seen any, even on the Tala website. They are beautiful, of amazing quality and utility!

      • Eileen on December 2, 2020 at 3:25 am

        I am also trying to find sellers of the made in England Typhoon tea kettle. All that I’ve found seem to be out of stock.

  7. Terry & Jane on October 22, 2020 at 8:01 pm

    Brilliant! We’re making sure we buy British manufactured goods and are starting by buying a quality set of Samuel Groves pans, you can’t beat quality British engineering!

  8. Jill Bridge on November 20, 2020 at 2:21 pm

    Always looking to purchase British manufactured goods and support our own economy. There is no time, like the present, for our Government to invest in this country and ensure a resurgence in industry instead of boosting the Chinese economy ! Thank you for this site and please keep up the good work which is much appreciated .

  9. Jeanie on November 24, 2020 at 6:17 pm

    I am going to buy a stainless steel pan set from Samuel Groves. So glad they are British made, well done! I prefer not to buy anything from China.

  10. Tim on December 19, 2020 at 1:30 pm

    Been trying to buy more British, recently have been trying to find a British made tin opener – cannot find one for love or money

  11. Sue on December 24, 2020 at 5:26 pm

    I decided that I was going to promote and purchase British goods wherever it was possible. Too much is made abroad in various countries. We used to be second to none in quality with home made goods in the UK and were proud of it too. We do not all want throwaway goods and I shall be certainly looking to these companies mentioned for my kitchenware. Am particularly interested in the Duchess China and the Samuel Groves. Please let us all promote our country’s skills.

  12. Gayle on December 30, 2020 at 11:39 am

    Delighted to have found this website and will check it whenever I’m thinking about buying anything for the house and especially gifts for friends.

  13. Yandle on January 5, 2021 at 10:47 am

    So glad I’ve found this site – really want to buy British as much as possible but it’s not always easy to find, will definitely buy my saucepans from this company from now on.

  14. Jane on January 20, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Delighted to have found this site. I am keen to buy British and this site is a good start. I would be interested in hearing about more companies manufacturing products in Britain.

  15. John Thynne on January 20, 2021 at 2:39 pm

    I’m looking for a British manufactured chefs blow torch. I only buy British. I avoid manufactured in China. Can anyone help.

  16. Wayne on February 4, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    I like a lot of others will only buy British wherever possible from now on! The fact that it’s so difficult to find many items just shows how necessary it is for us to change our shopping habits. I’ll never knowingly buy a Chinese slave traders item again!

  17. Carole on February 14, 2021 at 4:03 pm

    I’m sick of being forced to buy CCS (cheap Chinese s**t) and have been looking for British MANUFACTURED items for a couple of years now. Difficult since we sleepwalked in the ’80s from a manufacturing economy to a candyfloss (finance, services, tourism) economy where we don’t actually MAKE anything any more. V. glad I found this web site. We now need UK made electric kettles that last and can be repaired. I can’t afford £245 for a stove top copper kettle!
