Swan. We love what we do. With a strong British heritage dating back to the 1920s,
Swan understand that the kitchen is the heart of home life.
The kitchen is the hub of activity and an integral part of home life.
It’s where delicious meals are made and memories are created over a cup of tea and slice of cake. Swan’s passion is to make dream on-trend kitchens a reality for our customers, by offering affordable iconic cookware and appliances collections that boast stylish design and outstanding performance. We are a lifestyle brand for everyday moments.
The ‘Swan Brand’ name was registered by Bulpitt & Sons Ltd., brass founders, in the early part of the 20th Century.
Bulpitt moved into electrical appliances.
Including kettles, irons, heaters, and steamers.
The first electric element kettle was produced!
Bulpitt pioneered the first electric element that could be immersed in water leading to a whole range of products based around their “immersion element”.
The first electric toaster.
The “8-30” toaster was one of the most efficient at the time.
No 1 UK Appliance Brand.
Purchased by Moulinex.
British and European manufacturers were under intense pressure from cheaper, Far East imports resulting in Swan Brand being acquired by French manufacturers, Moulinex. However Moulinex were also under the same pressure from cheaper imports and the company went bankrupt in 2001.
Purchased by Littlewoods.
Founded in Liverpool in 1923, the retail and football betting company was the largest private company in Europe by the 1980s and purchased Swan Brand in 2000.
In 2009, Swan Products Ltd. took over developing and marketing Swan with Littlewoods and formed a great partnership.
Brand licensed to Swan Products Ltd.
The fantastic partnership with Littlewoods continued until July 2017 when Swan Products Ltd. acquired the brand, returning it back to the original Swan employees who are passionate about the brand’s heritage.

Lynsey Queen of Clean Range
Swan took inspiration from Lynsey’s eye-opening cleaning hacks and collaborated with her to produce a powerful and efficient range of new pretty in pink cleaning tools which include an easy-to-use handheld carpet cleaner, a light-weight cordless vacuum and handheld steam cleaner.
Coming in 2023…
In a world’s first, Swan created the first Alexa kettle.
Lynsey has taken TV and social media by storm, with her no-nonsense advice on how to keep homes clean – without sacrificing too much precious time. From initially reaching out to us on Instagram about our handheld clothes steamer, to collaborating on a fabulous and powerful (pink!) cleaning appliance range, Lynsey has been a part of our Swan family for # years.
Charlotte, aka missgreedyshome, grew a large community on Instagram sharing a DIY makeover of her home in Wales. More text here about her work with Swan… and her top two Swan products are our egg poacher and boiler and HyperClean cordless vacuum.

Our newest ambassador is TikTok sensation, Lauren Saddington. It all started off with Lauren’s love for our Retro pink kettle which she proudly showed off to her TikTok community.
