Who we are

Every household in the UK has at least 1 of our products

Originally established in 1850 by a gentleman named Thomas Plant we specialised in manufacturing and wholesale of ironmongery and household products. Many of our customers still refer to us as Thomas Plant and have dealt with us for decades reflecting our rich heritage. In 1996 we changed our name from Thomas Plant to Kitchen Craft to give customers more indication of what we do and began establishing ourselves as market leaders in all types of kitchen and homewares products and accessories.

We now also form part of Lifetime Brands inc., a leading global provider of kitchenware, tableware and other products used in the home. Working as part of a global organisation gives you the reassurance we have the resources to deliver cutting edge products at exactly the right time.
