Adam Reuvany is promising something a bit tasty on the stand of stone wholesaler Bloomstones London at the Natural Stone Show this year.

Bloomstones will be introducing the Cooking Surface Prime under-surface induction hobs it is now selling in conjunction with its slabs from the bright, new 1,400m2 headquarters it moved into in the summer last year.

The energy-efficient hobs fit under worksurfaces and heat pots and pans without any indication necessary on the surface that there is a hob there. It is ideal for space-limited London apartments and increasingly popular garden kitchens.

The plan is to have the hobs live under one of the company’s worktops on its stand at the show to demonstrate the effectiveness of these hobs by actually cooking something.

Visitors will be able to try it out for themselves by taking part in a competition to cook an omelette in the quickest time.

Induction hobs work by heating the metal vessels being used for the cooking rather than the surface they are standing on. Of course, the heated vessel also heats the surface, but the surface remains a lot cooler than a traditional hob gets.

Bloomstones’ move into new premises in Dartford has given it an attractive new showroom and office area to welcome customers into as well as a large warehouse where they can see the range of 400 varieties of natural stone, Bloomstones quartz and ABK porcelain from Italy that the company sells.

Just off the M25, the new premises give Bloomstones easy access to the country’s motorway network to make deliveries from Southampton to Leeds without an overnighter.

Bloomstones believes suppliers should be making it easier for customers to choose natural stone and is happy to send slabs to its customers’ showrooms and studios for their customers to approve before buying. If the slabs are not sold, Bloomstones will take them back. “We do really well with quartzite,” says Adam, “because of the high quality of the products we sell.”

Bloomstones is determined to maintain an identity of its own that sets it apart from its competitors, concentrating on supplying products mostly from Italy, India and Brazil, plus some carefully chosen materials from Spain. The products it has in stock can be seen on its website and it promotes what is in stock on social media.

This year Bloomstones has a new member of staff with the appointment of Gary Chipping, previously with Nicobond, who is concentrating on increasing the Bloomstones displays in KBB showrooms, although Bloomstones only sells to fabricators.
