Many thanks go to our esteemed partner-brand Gaggenau who has contributed this blog post by way of an introduction to the company for our customers. Read on to discover why Gaggenau is considered a leading innovator in home appliances and how its internationally-acclaimed products have revolutionised the domestic kitchen.
The company was established in 1683 as an ironworks in Gaggenau, a small village on the edge of the Black Forest, Germany. It is this foundation in traditional industrial manufacturing that set it on the path to becoming a leading brand for domestic appliances.
Gaggenau was the first to bring an eye-level oven to market in 1956, an extraordinary innovation for a world just on the cusp of the fitted kitchen. It then debuted the separate cooktop in the 1970s, followed by the introduction of the first-ever professional-grade domestic steam oven in 1999. With German engineering at the heart of the company for more than 330 years, it goes without saying that Gaggenau will continue to inspire the culinary pioneers of the future.
Designed for living
Gaggenau’s raison d’être is to elevate everyday culinary creations: this is the fuel that drives its visionary approach to appliance design. Its skilled designers cut through the superfluous to arrive at a form that speaks to busy people who want to create professional-standard dishes time after time. This purist aesthetic has defined Gaggenau appliances for centuries, and will continue to do so for future generations.
Gaggenau’s appetite for simplicity is not restricted to looks alone. Intractable functionality strips a luxury product of its appeal, which is why it strives for straightforward and elegant solutions to culinary challenges. To achieve this, Gaggenau works closely with renowned chefs to uncover what delights and frustrates them when cooking and then use these insights to safeguard the purity of the user experience through a progressive design and manufacturing process.
Exceptional craftsmanship has long been a prerequisite for luxury products, but this cannot exist without first sourcing the finest raw materials. For Gaggenau, this means going above and beyond industry standards by collaborating with suppliers who share its passion for perfection.
Stainless steel is at the core of Gaggenau products, inspired by the professional kitchen where its easy-to-clean and non-porous properties make it an advantageous choice. Gaggenau professional solid stainless steel control knobs or 3mm stainless-steel frame of the vario 400 series cooktops, ensure it enjoys unrivalled stability and durability. There is no room for compromise when it comes to creating products of Gaggenau’s calibre.
From cooking to cooling, laundry to dishwashing, Gaggenau’s products stand out from the crowd for all the right reasons. Its suite of sleek, built-in appliances are made to the highest standards and harness meticulous attention to detail. Adhering to strict aesthetic values across the complete collection guarantees the appliances effortlessly complement one another. However, their stellar reputation isn’t built on looks alone. This is where Gaggenau’s expertise in technology and engineering comes to the fore, striking a balance between design and user experience. The resulting appliances have the uncompromising quality of the professional kitchen.
Gaggenau offers the reassurance of being part of the BSH Group, a global organisation dedicated to a programme of sustainability initiatives. At the heart of this is a commitment to developing efficient appliances that are designed to have a longer life, to be repairable and, at the end of their life, can be recycled or reused. Gaggenau luxury home appliances have longevity and durability that we know will delight Davonport customers.
Our track record in manufacturing enduring products that meet the demands of exceptional chefs and home cooks is second to none.
