La Cornue Freestanding Dual Fuel Ranges
When it comes to the culinary arts, French cuisine has quite the acclaimed reputation. Such accolades would inspire gastronomy enthusiast Albert Dupuy to create one of the most coveted luxury brands in bespoke kitchen design, La Cornue.
In 1908, Dupuy set Paris ablaze by introducing the first convection oven. They featured a vaulted ceiling which naturally circulated heat in and around foods, resulting in moist and evenly cooked meals. Since then, this advancement led La Cornue’s renowned freestanding dual fuel ranges to be one of the most sought after by discerning epicureans worldwide.
La Cornue’s top tier series, Le Château, is the epitome of French elegance. Each model exclusively made to order and handcrafted by skilled artisans in Saint-Ouen L’Aumône. Aspiring chefs and seasoned vets can choose from any color they desire, turning each owner’s creative vision into reality. These functional works of art can be as petite as 30” wide, up to an expansive width of 71”. With such ampleness, select cooktop surfaces can feature induction hobs, an electric teppan-yaki, a lava rock grill, and a cast iron French plaque, allowing for a multitude of culinary techniques.
There is also available a model that offers the same upper echelon experience at a more attractive price. Not to be confused as the lesser of the series, the CornuFé Series are for those who are passionate about exquisite cuisine but don’t require an extensive and customized cook space. These standard 36” wide models feature 5 sealed burners, including a center burner with an impressive 17,500 BTUs. Select from an assortment of finishes including stainless steel, white, black, bisque, blue, green, and yellow, along with accented trims for a lustrous look that is unmatched by any other appliance.
What originally began as an innovative solution to the conventional way of cooking, soon led to a series of culinary tools which not only contributed to creating masterpieces but likewise stood as a work of art on their own.
