If you’re looking for those general items that will make life in your kitchen easy, convenient and much simpler, then look no further. At W. V. Howe catering suppliers Birmingham, we bring you a range of general use items that are ideal for use in busy commercial catering establishments.

Make sure you can always access those hard-to-reach cupboards and shelves in the kitchen with a handy step stool. With the choice of foldable and Heavy Duty Step Stools with Rubber Treads, you’ll find the right piece of equipment to safely and easily access those high-up items.

We also have a number of general steps, which offer a little more height to users and a safe way to reach those high points. Check out our 2-Tier Kitchen Step with Rubber Treads or our 3 and 5-tier Trade Steps, which are ideal for those hard-to-access areas. Whether you’re updating your mounted specials board, cleaning the light fixtures front of house or grabbing pots and pans that are stowed away on a high shelf, these steps are the ideal item to have around.

Other great products in our general range include hardwearing and heat resistant oven cloths that are washable and great for handling hot items, such as pans and oven trays. Or why not make sure everyone has their eye on the time for prep and service with a wall-hung kitchen clock with large face and dials so it’s clear to read even during a busy service. 

Whatever you need when it comes to those practical items, you can always rely on W. V. Howe catering suppliers for quality and great value.
