Since the early 20s, year after year, Molteni has created the best professional stoves – the dream of every great chef. Molteni: a legend born in the tradition of ancient craftsmanship, melding an extreme attention to detail with the quest for strong, noble materials.
Back in 1923, Joseph Molteni, a founder craftsman, settled in Saint-Uze, a small town in the department of Drome, the gateway to Provence. A manufacturer of “fourneaux bouilleurs”, the wood and coal stoves that were used at the same time for cooking, central heating and heating water, he was always willing to lend a sympathetic ear to great chefs. Taking into account their personality and way of working, he came up with a unique range that would suit their needs, and this is how the “fourneau ménage” became professional.
The Molteni history is comparable to that of a real star. Talent, commitment and obstinacy lead it through the heights of success to the peaks of glory. Today the symbol of the highest culinary culture, Molteni is indissolubly linked to the name of its founder, whose handicraft and wisdom in manufacturing wood stoves still lies untouched in each Molteni professional appliance.
From the unequalled Fourneaux, complete with all cooking functions and complementary tools in an only block to the Brasserie with compact length-wise cooking functions, a Molteni model always represents the maximum a Chef could ever desire: the starting point of an excellent career, the means to reach the highest tones of the culinary mastery. Each Molteni stove is a unique jewel, and today every great chef in the world creates his/her menus on a Molteni.
Dreamt of, sought after and loved, the Molteni stoves have become a legend.
