Tower – Stand EH402 Over the past 18 months, the Tower brand has gone from strength-to-strength and is now the fastest-growing brand in the SDA market*. Steeped in an impressive history of over 100 years, the brand continues to combine its British heritage with consumer insight driven innovation to create the ‘must have’ products for consumers. One of the secrets to Tower’s success is a relentless focus on new product development and market trends, staying ahead of the competition year-after-year in the SDA and housewares industry.

kitchen collections across SDA and housewares and was the first brand to introduce Rose Gold as a co- ordinated design statement. Since then, collections such as Glitz, Scandi, Empire and Cavaletto have been huge hits through the success of utilising trend forecasts and consumer insights.

Air Fryers

It has been impossible to miss Tower’s success in the Air Fryer category over the last 18 months with over 2 million Vortx Air Fryers sold in the UK and Ireland to date. Determined to keep up with consumer demand throughout 2021 and into 2022, Britain’s favourite air frying brand will be launching new lines at Exclusively. Utilising Tower’s own industry-leading air frying technology, Vortx, the new XpressPro Combi 10-in-1 Digital Air Fryer Oven will expand upon the success of its best-selling 5-in-1 Rotisserie model. The 10-in-1 offers new functionality to further cater to time-poor consumers’ needs. Not only that, but there will be a chance to see a brand-new Twin Basket Air Fryer and Vizion range which is set to also stretch across further SDA lines.

Cookware With an unprecedented rise in home cooking and baking since the start of the pandemic, Tower has listened to consumers’ changes in behaviour and launched new key cookware lines. Precision cookware ticks all the boxes with consumers looking for a quality product that is durable, practical and healthy. Precision uses a thick-forged aluminium body with chef-style riveted steel handles for ultimate comfort and control when cooking. Another key cookware launch from 2021, Freedom, will be on display at the show, offering removable handles and a space-saving design for more flexibility in the kitchen. Brand-new

cookware lines will also make an appearance at Exclusively, catering to the growing needs of home cooks post-lockdown.
