                    Lifetime Hoan Corporation

                    By:  /s/ Robert McNally
                         Robert McNally
                         Vice President of Finance and
                           Chief Financial Officer

Date:  October 30, 2003


                           IN THIRD QUARTER 2003

LCUT),  a leading marketer of housewares, today announced results  for  the
third quarter ended September 30, 2003.

Net  sales  for  the quarter increased 37% to a record $44.1  million  from
$32.2  million  in  the  third  quarter of 2002.   Income  from  continuing
operations  increased 135% to $2.9 million from $1.2 million for  the  same
period in 2002.  Earnings per diluted share from continuing operations more
than  doubled to $0.27 per share from $0.12 per share in last year's  third

Jeffrey  Siegel, president and chief executive officer, commented, "We  are
very  pleased with the substantial growth in sales and net income  Lifetime
Hoan  realized  in the third quarter.  As we expected, the  combination  of
exciting  new products and significant additional placements produced  very
positive  results in our lines of kitchen tools and gadgets,  bakeware  and
Kamenstein  pantryware.   Our  new  S'mores  Maker,  which  became   widely
available  at many of our major retail customers at the end of August,  has
been just as popular as we predicted.

"Lifetime's recent acquisition of the business and certain assets of  :USEr
-  Tools  for Civilizationr, a company that creates contemporary  lifestyle
products  for the home, is an exciting step forward for us.  Its reputation
for  design excellence in decorative hardware, mirrors and lighting for the
bath,  as  well as decorative window accessories, is the perfect complement
to  our  existing expertise and will help us expand our product line beyond
the kitchen, as well as enabling us to gain distribution in the strong `do-
it-yourself' category."

Mr.  Siegel  continued, "With the completion of the third quarter,  we  are
updating  our  earnings  guidance for 2003.  We now expect  Lifetime's  net
sales  for the year to total approximately $155 to $160 million.   Earnings
per share are estimated to total approximately $0.75 to $0.80."

As  announced in 2002, Lifetime sold its 51% interest in the businesses  of
each of Prestige Italiana, Spa. and Prestige Haushaltswaren GmbH (together,
the   "Prestige  Companies").   The  loss  from  the  Prestige   Companies'
operations  for  the  third  quarter of 2002 is reflected  as  discontinued
operations on the Company's income statements.

Separately,  the Company announced that its Board of Directors  declared  a
regular  quarterly cash dividend of $0.0625 per share, payable on  November
20, 2003 to shareholders of record on November 4, 2003.
