Manufacturing Process

For La Cornue, food is our passion but quality and craftsmanship are our livelihood and reputation. Our small atelier is located just outside Paris and is home to the small La Cornue family of 60 employees.

Prestigious Kitchen Ranges

In 2005, Châteaux and Cornuchef kitchen ranges are still only produced to order, and are individually hand-made with patience and pride.

Naturally, La Cornue makes use of modern technology and is forever improving its products, but no manufacturing changes made will ever alter our determination to preserve the noble values traditionally associated with handicraft production.

We use only noble materials, selected and chosen for their quality and their longevity: cast iron, steel, solid brass, nickel and enamel.

We steadily build a few hundred Châteaux per year, which we proudly dispatch to destinations all over the world. We take all of the time we need in order to make them correctly, which is to say according to our strictest quality criteria.

Each Château, Each Cornuchef is assembled by hand and by one person; this person will follow production through to the end and finalize every last detail. Each kitchen range is monitored, controlled and tested at all the stages of production.

Even if you happen to be the Queen of England, you will have to wait at least two months for your Château La Cornue. We wouldn’t know how to make it any quicker.
