Kitchen Magazine

People say print is dead. At Harts of Stur we beg to differ. And that's why we launched Kitchen, our very own in-house magazine, back in September 2016. Our aim was to produce a publication with high production values that offers an insight into the range of products we sell. We didn’t want it to be ‘just another catalogue’, it needed to be interesting, informative, immersive and useful. Something the reader would want to read from cover to cover. Part blog, part lifestyle magazine, we think Kitchen ticks all the boxes. And we are not alone. In 2017 it won us a national awards for retailer initiative at the Excellence in Housewares Awards.

Each edition is packed full of the latest kit for your kitchen. It also features interesting articles on the history behind some of our most iconic brands plus features on perennial kitchen classics. Seasonal recipes from top TV chefs and well respected local chefs are augmented by essential kit lists. Kitchen also provides the reader with a unique opportunity to find out a bit more about us - both as a company and individuals of the team.

If you've purchased something from us in the last few years or have visited our store, chances are you will have seen a copy. But don't worry if you haven't or you've missed an edition, you can view the entire collection online - see below. You can also browse the products featured in each magazine easily by clicking the corresponding 'shop now' link.

We hope you enjoy the magazines as much as we have enjoyed putting them together.
