Gaggenau is the flagship brand of the highly efficient german appliance industry: it is located in Germany, Munich. The history of the company goes through several centuries: it was founded in the late seventeenth century by Count Ludwig Wilhelm von Baden on the edge of the Black Forest. After working for years as an ironworks, producing metal utensils, stoves and even bicycles, in the second half of the twentieth century the company built his reputation on the kitchen.
In the ‘50s, Gaggenau revolutionized the market, becoming the first company to launch built-in appliances in Europe. The passion for innovation became a constant: Gaggenau was ahead of its time also in the introduction of modular cooktops, with the Vario series, also proposing the first steam ovens for domestic kitchens.
In 1994, the company became part of the BSH group, a joint venture of Bosch and Siemens, joining as a premium solution the appliances produced by the two brands and those branded Neff, a company also aimed at a high-end audience. Refrigerators, ovens, hobs, dishwashers, wine cellars and all other Gaggenau appliances continue to be a benchmark in the sector.
