Italians are renowned the world over for their passion for design. Combined with exquisite craftsmanship this has produced some of the most desirable products and iconic brands.
That same passion and craftsmanship is what drove our founders Eugenio Illoti and Evelino Berno to create their first commercial cooker way back in 1952. Word spread quickly and soon there was a demand from passionate home cooks for a domestic product as good as their original commercial cookers.
ILVE has come a long way since those early days. Our cooking appliances are now amongst the world’s finest and can be found in some of the most sophisticated homes throughout the globe. And not just for their beautiful design either.
The consistent blue flame of solid brass burners, the cool touch of an oven door and the delight of tepanyaki cooking, are all testimony to our exceptional attention to detail. In short, a passion for innovation and craftsmanship permeates everything we do.
Our state-of-the-art factory near Venice is home to the modern day craftsmen and women of Italy who still to this day exquisitely handcraft and assemble ILVE appliances. It is their unique Italian sensibility and the legacy of Illoti and Berno that lives on in every ILVE kitchen.
