Family, food, engineering: these three words define the Bertazzoni brand, whose kitchen appliances date back to the nineteenth century.
For more than 100 years, Bertazzoni kitchen appliances have helped people bring the best of home-cooked food to the family table. This book traces the history of the brand, from the first wood-burning cooking stoves through the gas stoves of the 1950s to contemporary completely designed kitchens. From the nineteenth century to the present day, the history of Bertazzoni appliances is intertwined with the history of home, living, and family cooking traditions. By looking at the evolution of kitchen design, we can trace the changes in our lifestyles.
A brand with cooking ranges at its core that now also provides complete kitchens in every part of the world, Bertazzoni first began selling in the U.S. and Canada in 2005, and since then it has become a global brand that is still proud of its local, family roots in Italy.
