A La Cornue cooker is a masterpiece in itself, with every single detail designed to combine excellence with refinement. It makes your kitchen unique.
A shape inspired by the Paris metro.
When Fulgence Bienvenüe opened the first metro line in 1900, he could never have imagined that Albert Dupuy would use it eight years later as his inspiration for the design of the very first vaulted oven – the key design feature of La Cornue cooker.
Patented in 1908, the shape of the vaulted gas oven is inspired by the vaulted tunnels of the Paris metro. Its unique shape allows air to circulate naturally and evenly around dishes, quickly forming a crisp outer layer that acts like a protective shell, locking in the natural juices and intensifying flavours.
The all-new G4 vaulted ovens with exclusive technology, patented in 2014. The result of four years of research and development, all our gas ovens are now fitted with an RCC disk (Radiation, Convection and Conduction) to ensure food is evenly cooked and even more flavoursome.
Combining a circular burner with an enamelled cast iron disk means that one single oven can cook in several different ways: by radiation (the heat is reflected off the inner walls), by convection (even air circulation around the dish) and by conduction (simmering food directly on the disk). The new G4 electric oven has also undergone several improvements, offering the choice of several cooking methods for every kind of baking.
Benefits include a faster-warming over and improvements to cooking performance – meaning that there are no limits to the delicious dishes you can produce.
The jewel in the La Cornue crown.
The result of over 100 years of research and development, each 'Château' cooker is entirely hand-made by our craftsmen in our production workshop in the Parisian region of France. Their knowledge and expertise has been passed down from generation to generation, providing you with culinary performance and elegance.
With customisable choices of configuration, colours and trims, there are no less than 8,000 options available to you to design your own 'bespoke' cooker to suit your own requirements, desires and appetites.
Authentic expertise and modern lines.
With a more contemporary feel, the 'Cornuchef' cooker is also more suitable for the demands of modern urban life, combining pride in our French craftsmanship and the very essence of La Cornue expertise: the legendary vaulted oven and the must-have solid top.
Available in two sizes, a range of colours and two types of trim, it creates a colourful kitchen that is bursting with flavour.
An initiation into the world of La Cornue.
Efficient and fun, the 'Cornufé' cooker is the ideal compromise for lovers of fine dining looking to enjoy all the excellence of La Cornue without a designer price tag.
It boasts a convection oven, high-performance burners or an induction hob, and various combinations of colours and trims to suit your style as well as your taste buds.
