Whether it be inside a New York terrace or a Brutalist-inspired Belgian home, a French range cooker is guaranteed to make a statement in the kitchen. And when it comes to French range cookers, La Cornue is the name to know. Established in France in 1908, La Cornue are purveyors of premium ovens and range cookers; each oven is handcrafted by master artisans in the Parisian suburb of Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône to this day. While the design of the oven’s shell has changed over time, La Cornue have maintained their distinct French heritage look, with each cooker available in a customisable range of enamel colours and finishes.
Aesthetics aside, La Cornue are also globally renowned for their superior cooking capabilities. The cooking technology, patented in 1908, is inspired by the vaulted tunnels in the Paris metro system. The unique shape of La Cornue’s vaulted gas ovens allows air to circulate naturally and evenly around dishes, resulting in maximum heat distribution and flavour.
In this feature, we see how a La Cornue range cooker becomes the pièce de résistance in seven different kitchens.
