La Cornue is more than just a range of convection kitchen ovens. To own a La Cornue is to own a piece of French culture. La Cornue has maintained this renowned piece of French cuisine for more than a century. Every range is handcrafted, and each craftsman engraves a unique number after its conception. More than just an oven, La Cornue is excellent at every turn.
When Albert Dupuy first created the convection oven in 1908, the alternatives were brutish. Ovens were flat-topped craters with a naked flame beneath its racks. Dupuy's vaulted ceilings guided heat around the food rather than trap it below. Now Dupuy's craftsmanship can bring warmth to every home. With ranges available in more than 40 countries, La Cornue has not lost its flame. Only 60 employees still handcraft every oven.
On such a scale, every worker must be a craftsman. And a designer. Every La Cornue is a kitchen's trophy. Each, a pièce de résistance. While the pursuit of perfection is not cheap, it yields the highest quality. If you, like us, value French history and the finest craftsmanship - a La Cornue may be your finishing touch.
La Cornue Magic
La Cornue is a celebration of home decor, art and the science of cuisine. Fantastic cuisine is no accident. To inspire memories and moments is a balance of precision and creativity.
Unique and memorable dishes deserve like-minded tools. La Cornue ranges are crafted to bring the best out of your ingredients - and your kitchen. Just as a chef makes finer cuts with a sharp edge, you will make finer tastes with a La Cornue.
To understand history, you must piece together important moments in time. To understand a La Cornue, you must piece together its components. Each component is an essential step closer to culinary perfection.
The RCC Gas Oven
La Cornue ovens are fitted with electric multi-function convection ovens or its older brother - the gas oven.
RCC stands for radiation, convection, and conduction. To bring the best from your dishes, La Cornue ovens come uniquely equipped.
The RCC disk is a combination of an enameled cast-iron disc and a circular burner. The result is one oven with three weapons of heat.
Radiation cooks the food using reflected heat from the oven's internal walls. Conduction cooking is a direct simmer on the disc itself. And in La Cornue tradition, convection-style cooking circulates air around the dish.
In the style of La Cornue, we added something unique. A patented technique known as mivoûtage produces exceptional tenderness and flavor.
The Electric Multifunction Convection Oven
The gas oven is not the only one to benefit from new technology. The G4 Electric Oven now boasts different cooking modes for pastry dishes.
Temperature responses are faster. Cooking performance is better. La Cornue holds its own with modern ovens while preserving a unique origin.
Besides the conventional oven, fan-assisted cooking, convection, and defrosting - La Cornue has a unique touch.
Bottom heat is ideal to finish baked dishes such as dense cakes and bread. Using bottom heat for the last 10 minutes of cooking ensures the dish is cooked through without browning its edges.
If browning is your goal, La Cornue covers that too. The electric browning element is your finishing touch. Intense heat can ruin a perfect dish, but the browning element can gently achieve the right result.
Convection broiling gives your food a fabulous searing without drying out the food with direct heat. Convection broiling also minimizes splatter inside the oven.
All La Cornue ovens are, of course, vaulted in the style of Albert Dupuy
On top of a La Cornue sits several options. Power burners come oversized and in pairs. Oversized power burners are ideal for large saucepans, sautéing, high heat cooking, and searing.
All power burners are set into an enameled drip tray and covered by a cast iron grate.
The French Top
The French top consists of a single gas burner set beneath a solid cast iron top. Offering variable heating zones, multiple saucepans can cook using indirect heat sources.
It's electric cousin, the Teppanyaki, is a griddle-style flat electric-heated surface. The Teppanyaki is best deployed against tough steaks, seafood, vegetables, eggs, and rice. If consistency is essential, this option - is a necessity.
Grilling and Inducting
Lastly, the lava-rock grill is a gas burner set underneath natural lava rocks—your very own stove-top natural open grill. The grill simulates an open fire roast, great for meat and fish.
Ceramic induction panels are also possible, going up to 3700 watts.
The La Cornue Range
The La Cornue range has everything it takes to bring your kitchen to the next level. Each model comes with custom premium colors and unique trim accents. A piece from La Cornue is a statement in your kitchen - more than just an oven.
Cornufé 90 Albertine
The Cornufé 90 was designed with the U.S. market in mind. It is a single oven model and one of the smallest but also most affordable options.
If you're confined in space or aren't ready to invest more substantially - the model 90 may be the best fit.
This oven is a solid cruiserweight, weighing in at 315 lbs. The Cornufé is just over 35 inches wide and tall.
Packed with five gas power burners and a large storage drawer, the Cornufé 90 packs a big punch for its size. The model comes with a multi-function convection oven that has 7 cooking modes.
Three trim pairs can help the Albertine shine in your kitchen. Choose to pair stainless steel with polished brass, chrome, or satin chrome.
The electric convection oven retails starting from $8,475 plus shipping. The price tag also brings a five-year warranty for parts and labor.
For an extra $4,770, you can pair it with its perfect match - a Cornufé 90 Hood. The hood comes with a 600 CFM blower and a 4-speed motor.
The traditional La Cornue look makes it a match with your new Albertine.
Filters are dishwasher safe and capture grease. Three 20W halogen bulbs help you see every detail of your meal-in-progress.
The Cornufé 110
The Cornufé 110 is the original Cornufé oven range. For many, their first La Cornue love. The 110 features two electric-powered convection ovens.
Like the Cornufé 90, the 110 is also packed with five gas power burners and a large storage drawer. The drawer sits just below two French side-swing enameled steel doors that contain your next delicious meal.
The same pairs of stainless steel with polished brass, chrome, or satin chrome apply here. With double electric ovens, the polished steel frames are a worthy centerpiece in any kitchen. At the level of a 110, your La Cornue oven is a statement of high-quality craftsmanship.
This electric convection oven retails from $10,450, excluding shipping. This oven is a statement.
Both additions to the Cornufé series are a fit for those that have high culinary standards but do not need the size of the Château series.
Besides the intricately beautiful La Cornue finish, the Cornufé ovens have a unique splash of color. Each Cornufé oven has the option of 4 colors by Suzanna Kasler.
Kasler was inspired by the muted, faded European colors that are "subtle enough that you never get tired of them. Classic, not trendy." These colors can drive color selection in a home.
Colour is personality. Give your kitchen and home a strong but classy personality with a Cornufé oven. Color palettes like Liberté and Basilica are subtle yet warm.
Should the size of the Château series entice you, Kasler designed a specific set of colors for you too. Be one-of-a-kind, set the tone in your kitchen.
As each La Cornue is a unique piece of craftsmanship, every La Cornue kitchen is a statement of a home's warmth. Suppose you prefer a subtler tone. Perhaps, an oven that does not hide but does not immediately present itself either.
Then La Cornue ovens also come with higher contrast colors like Brilliant Black and Dark Navy Blue.
The Château Series
The crown jewel of a La Cornue kitchen. The word Château has always represented French nobility, as much as a statement of design as power.
For La Cornue, the Château series carries similar weight. The Château is timeless, like the rugged stone of a castle - but an expression of taste.
Every Château oven is made to order from one workshop in the Saint-Ouen l'Aumône, outside Paris. It is designed to embody your vision.
In total, more than 8,000 possible configurations make your Château truly unique. Three generations of craftsmanship packed into seven sizes - up to 71 inches across. To own a Château is to possess a masterpiece before the cooking even begins.
The Grand Palais 180
The Grand Palais 180 is the top of the Château spire. At a regal 6 feet in length, the range carries the weight of two grand vaulted ovens - one electric and one gas.
Above the vaults sit a highly configurable burner configuration. At 7 possible combinations, there is a place for everything in your kitchen. Combine power gas burners, Lava-Rock grills, French tops, a Teppanyaki, and induction plates to complete your own masterpiece.
This oven is bespoke.
This is the foundation of a kitchen. The Rangetop begins at $25,600, while the oven starts from $60,300. At such value, there are 48 enamel or metal finishes for your Château. And if you demand a once-in-a-lifetime piece, your Château can come with its own unique color - chosen by you.
The Château Supreme
For those who always go the extra mile, the Château Supreme is a worthy companion. Made in collaboration with Ferris Rafauli, the Supreme is the ultimate sophistication.
Every element was re-designed and re-considered for maximum distinction—every line precise, every detail outstanding.
Tireless work went into material selection. This is a unique vision - made real. Each simmering plate bears the La Cornue stars, and every control knob is re-designed for this model alone. The power and detail in such a piece is a force in any kitchen.
The Château Supreme bears six power burner configurations. Two optional warming drawers. And a Château Supreme 180 Hood finished in combination with your selections, boasting a leather exterior.
