Lakeland has revealed the products they predict will be massive hits with shoppers in 2019 – some of which we can’t wait to get our hands on.
The high street retailer released details of what they predict will become a staple addition in every kitchen in Britain in 2019 as part of their Lakeland Kitchen Report.
What to expect
The report surveyed over 2000 people to find out what their favourite products, kitchen habits, recipes and a host of other kitchen related ideas are.
With sustainability and green living at the forefront of many people’s minds today, a number of eco-friendly products feature atop the list of what to expect heading into 2019, along with some usual suspects and handy kitchen hacks.
Tofuture Tofu Press
The vegan trend that has swept the nation shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon as more people embrace a cleaner way of living.
Jumping on the trend, the Tofuture Tofu Press is expected to become a big seller in 2019. The tofu press is compact, easy to use and improves the overall taste of tofu by squeezing out all the excess moisture.
Most importantly, this handy piece of kit has been approved by The Vegan Society.
Bee’s Wrap Reusable Food Wraps
The fight against plastic is only likely to increase over the coming year, but as a collective we must try to do better to cut down on our use of disposable plastics.
These beeswax-infused wraps from Bee’s Wrap are a natural, sustainable alternative to cling film and other single-use plastic packaging, which are having an enormous impact on our environment.
The unique selling point of these food wraps is that they can be washed in cool water and reused time and time again.

Have you ever considered what possible chemicals used to create frying pans and saucepans could still be present when you use them to cook?
In some cases there are a number of harmful chemicals still attached to your cooking utensils.
In 2019, expect many home cooks to become conscious about the chemicals used to create traditional non-stick pans and look for alternatives.
The GreenPan Thermolon Infinity Professional ceramic pan is an eco-friendly non-stick pan that is expected to take off in 2019.
The pan features a chemical free coating on the interior of the frypan, making it perfect heat distribution while cooking, and a layer of diamond crystals, which provides a rock hard protection for the surface of the pan. It also includes a scratch guard layer that’ll protect from damage when cleaning.
Reusable Freezer Bags
Freezer bags are usually the type of household item that can only be used once, but Lakeland will be launching an eco-friendly reusable freezer bag to change that.
The bags will be sturdy, can hold large quantities of food and most importantly, they are dishwasher safe therefore can be used as many times as you need.
It is yet another example that 2019 will be the year shoppers move away from single-use plastic as they try to do their part to help the environment.
