Which company gas stove

Gas stoves and, in particular, independent hobs produced by so many companies, and in a variegated variety of trading It’s sometimes difficult to understand brands the first time. Especially, that a whole series of brands have big questions about their true origin. Thanks to specialists, we will clarify for you today these questions.

  1. Let’s start with brands for which there are no questions and there will be no can. These are the trademarks that everyone is hearing: German BOSH and Siemens, Italian Indesit, Swedish Electrolux. These names famous all over the world for many decades, and the history of some totals more than a century. Even the Belarusian brand GEFEST (JV Brestgazoapparat plant) is so familiar to all of us and so predictable that the technique of this brand can be confidently considered one of the best in its inexpensive class.
  2. Less obvious, but at the same time exactly the same proven For decades, brands are Swedish Asko (owned by the holding Gorenje Group), Italian Smeg (luxury equipment).

And finally, the most interesting thing is the brands that disguised as a country of production, in fact, having very distant relation to her, if not at all.

  1. First of all – Fornelli. The manufacturer’s marketers are struggling position their equipment as Italian, but without direct allegations, otherwise the company would have long been in court. In fact In fact, Fornelli gas hobs are assembled in China, and Italian in them can be only a few details. there is information that the Fornelli trademark belongs to the Russian Cavenddom company – the owner of such well-known brands as Shindo, Flavia and Kronasteel. Fornelli points to Russian roots also the fact that the official site is presented only in Russian language. Despite all this, this brand’s gas hobs pleasantly surprise with its quality and functionality.
  2. Hansa gas hobs are made in Poland on the capacities of the factories of the Polish company Amica Wronki S.A. Here, like in the case of Fornelli, there is deception with branding – Hansa technique is “unobtrusively” positioned as German, actually not being at all. However, the technique is very Solid, and the price is mostly affordable. On the same Polish factories, by the way, also produce “German” hobs Kaiser.
  3. Finally, the “British” MAUNFELD technique. From UK to This trademark only has a place of registration, and the equipment itself is produced, according to the manufacturer, in Poland, France, Italy, Turkey and … China. What exactly are the parts where are made – completely unknown, and something suggests that the lion’s share components and the assembly itself are made in China. The patent holder of MAUNFELD in the Russian Federation is a certain LLC VADAN Ltd. It’s fair to say that MAUNFELD hobs really good, and even good.
