In the average kitchen, the thought of appliances may come down to the finish/material, how great they look and also what unique features set them apart from the competition. When your wall ovens look like they are seamlessly part of the design of your kitchen and they resemble art rather than functional appliances, you know they are something special.
Paolo and Valentina Bertazzoni, decedents of the Bertazzoni family brand, discuss their innovative wall ovens that transform any kitchen into an art gallery as opposed to only a functional kitchen. Take a look at these gorgeous ovens and cooktop stoves that you’ll yearn to own in your gourmet kitchen.
What sets the Bertazzoni brand apart from others is the choice to adapt 100% of Italian-made process to American styling or to keep the traditional European styling and detailing truly their own. They decided to stay true to their heritage and design past, and stayed with truly Italian innovation and design aesthetics. Although they kept their roots, they still made American adaptations for the U.S. market.
Features such as the size of the appliances were a huge factor in the end design in the United States. “We knew we had to do modifications so we went into U.S. showrooms and even into their employees’ homes to see what was different. In Europe, we live one on top of another so we have smaller houses and smaller appliances. In the U.S., everything is larger” …Paolo Bertazzoni via Dwell.
The other impressive feature of the Bertazzoni appliances are the innovative interface. They wanted the interface to be extremely user friendly and compared the experience to using an iPod. “…had to be user-friendly (we didn’t want the customer to have to read some big manual to use it) and… had to have a modern look. Everyone knows what an iPod is and how to use it, and we wanted this to be very simple and very 2011 in a similar way; it’s very intuitive.” … Valentina Bertazzoni via Dwell.
The Bertazzoni wall ovens and cooktop are revolutionary for their gorgeous and streamlined designed that is unmistakably Italian but adapted for the U.S. market to blend the best of both worlds. Innovation, beauty, and function – it looks like it’s time to add them to your kitchen.
