Few suppliers of hospitality products go back as far as Samuel Groves. This venerable Birmingham-based manufacturer of kitchen equipment started in 1817, initially making brass candlesticks. By the 1870’s, production had expanded to electroplated teapots and trays and it started toe a significant exporter in the 1910’s. Henry Groves was the last family owner when in 1917 Samuel Groves was registered as a Limited Company. Moving to Musgrave Street, Hockley Birmingham in 1921. The big take-off into catering supply came during the Second World War when Samuel Groves won a major government contract and gained a major boost from the introduction of the Mermaid brand at the beginning of the 1950’s, Molly the Mermaid had first appeared in the 1920’s. The MD of the time saw a statue of a little mermaid in an antique shop and brought her back to Birmingham where she took up residence in the foyer of the factory. Her likeness has since proved an enduring logo. The move into larger premises in Norton Street, Birmingham in 1965 enabled the Company to expand its interests in cookware, bakeware, holloware and utensils. Henry Groves 1862-1936, third generation in the family firm was listed in the 1881 census as having the occupation of metal spinner, a process we still use at Samuel Groves today. Product innovation has not, however, been at the expense of the Company’s traditional manufacturing ethos, even though the market and indeed cooking practices have evolved over the years, Samuel Groves quality and processes have remained constant. We are traditional manufacturers and every product is still hand-finished.

Mermaid Quality A useful set of smaller roasting trays – ideal for those cooking for one. If you’ve never used Mermaid cookware then you really should – it doesn’t get much better. Treat it with a reasonable amount of respect (it really doesn’t scratch) and I suspect it lasts a lifetime – I’ll let you know! I have Mermaid items that have been used regularly for 20 yrs and still going strong! The set I bought were reasonably priced, delivered promptly and well packed. What more can a girl want?

Superb cookware Mermaid baking/roasting tins are really superb, we have several now. They have a great, solid-feeling quality. They do not warp in the oven, and they are really easy to clean. Whether I have gently cooked something or cremated it beyond recognition, a simple soak and then clean with a sponge or nylon scourer (which does not mark them at all) brings them back like new. I did accidentally put one in the dishwasher once, and thought I had ruined it, the surface looked terrible. But a few good…

Mermaid over trays I have a set of these and they are excellent quality. They are really solid trays which do not flex when heating up/cooling down. I find them a really useful size as well, quite often you do not need a huge oven tray – these are easy to manage and clean (I scrub mine with wire wool and it doesn’t mark the surface in any way).
