Our History

We’ve been putting the kitchen at the heart of the home since our early beginnings over 120 years ago. We’ve gone on to become a household name, with thoughtfully designed appliances that put the joy back into cooking and entertaining.

Your kitchen is a place where family get together, where friends catch up and where you spend quality time. That’s why we design beautiful, simple and intelligent appliances so you can get on with living.

If one thing has stayed the same over the years it’s the role of the kitchen and we put all our efforts into keeping it that way. Through innovation and thoughtful design we make sure that each and every product is designed for life, both now and in the future.
