The history of high-end appliance manufacturer Gaggenau is a fascinating tale. Their storied roots date all the way back to 1683 in Germany, where the Gaggenau company started as a hammer mill manufacturing nails and other household goods. By the 1880’s, they established themselves as experts in the art of enameling. Their process remains a closely guarded secret to this day.
It was in the 1930’s when they turned their focus to home appliances, as they sought to make life in the kitchen safer and more convenient. Decades later, it’s safe to say that they’re still succeeding at that goal. Gaggenau appliances are widely regarded for their innovative features and durability.
What Sets Gaggenau Apart from the Rest?
In addition to their rich tradition, Gaggenau credits their success to a few other key factors: Leadership, Design, and Quality.
More than 15 years ago, they developed the first Combi-steam (combination steam-convection) oven for residential use. Before this, steam-convection ovens were only seen in professional kitchens. They’ve pushed the envelope even further by installing fully automatic cleaning systems made possible by their enameling technology.
Gaggenau describes their appliance design attributes as, “authentic, sculptural, expressive, and generous“. This is exemplified by each appliance having its own unique touch and feel.
To ensure they meet their high quality standards, their products are largely assembled by hand. Then they put them through strenuous testing on site before shipment.
