The Newest Bertazzoni Range

Bertazzoni, the leading Italian manufacturer of precision-engineered kitchen lifestyle products, is commemorating its 125-year anniversary with a limited edition Heritage Series of gas ranges. Drawing inspiration from the original Bertazzoni wood burning stoves, the Heritage Series was designed with the classic appeal of traditional styling, while incorporating the advanced technology and sophisticated engineering upon which Bertazzoni has built its legacy.

“Today, more than a century after the family business began, Bertazzoni ovens and ranges are exported to more than 60 countries around the world – carrying with them the passion, precision and unique culinary traditions the company was founded upon,” shared Paolo Bertazzoni, the company’s fifth generation president. “We are pleased to introduce the exclusive Heritage Series to our existing array of product offerings, in honor and celebration of 125 years of innovation and excellence.”

The Heritage Series Unveiled
Embodying all of the elegance of its rich European legacy, the colorful 36-inch Heritage Series gas ranges come in three matte colors, black, burgundy and cream. Features include stainless steel worktops, different size burners for accuracy and versatility; a child safety ignition system; easy controls; and flexible and accurate cooking performance. Each range carries the signature of Antonio Bertazzoni, the son of company founder Francesco Bertazzoni. Antonio's signature is a symbol of familial pride, as he was the man whose energy and imagination made Bertazzoni wood burning stoves popular throughout Italy at the turn of the last century.
The Heritage Series includes the following features:
· Exclusive triple-ring burners provide high-efficiency power with a delicate low-simmer function

· Capable of being used traditionally or as a convection oven
· Settings include dehydration at thermostat-controlled low temperature, and fan-only defrosting

I managed to buy a brand new Rangemaster 90 and now I can say that I am really happy. Rangemaster manufacturers are the best when we speak about range cookers.
