When one thinks of the finest cooking ranges in the world, one brand should immediately come to mind: the La Cornue Chateau Series. Referred to as the “crown jewel” of La Cornue, the Chateau is available in over 8,000 configurations, all hand-made to order based on your individual requirements, personal cooking needs and design specifications.

Based on the patented vaulted oven designed by Albert Dupuy in 1908, the Chateau Series provides an elite cooking experience customized to every owner. Utilizing the very best in oven design and a virtually limitless array of design modifications, you can be certain that your Chateau Series cooking range and oven is not only the best money can buy, but also your very own.

The Chateau Series: Your Personalized Luxury Cooking Experience

The Chateau Series is available in six sizes, from the compact Chateau 75 to the expansive, six-foot Grand Palais 180. The Chateau 75 and Chateau 90 each offer one oven in either gas or electric as well as a variety of cooktop options to meet the needs of any chef. The Chateau 120 and 150 feature two standard vaulted ovens in either gas or electric, while the Chateau 165 offers one standard and one grand vaulted oven. Finally, the Grand Palais 180 offers the very best in oven design, with one grand vaulted gas oven and one grand vaulted electric oven.

Each Chateau Series oven offers a minimum of six cooktop configurations (there are up to 11 configurations in the Chateau 150), ensuring that any Chateau can be personalized to the specific needs of your kitchen. From gas burners to French plaques, power burners to electric plates, gas lava-rock grills to electric griddles, the La Cornue Chateau Series offers versatile, world-class cooktop solutions.

The Grand Palais 180 is not only the most luxurious La Cornue cooking range and oven, it is also one of La Cornue’s most customizable pieces. The grand vaulted and vaulted ovens boast a powerful 22,000 BTU, and the Grand Palais is available as a full oven piece or as a Table Grand Palais for cooktop features only, providing maximum luxury in minimal space.

From brushed black to French blue, British racing green to antique white with flowers, the Chateau Series can be created in a virtually limitless combination of colors and accents. Since each Chateau Series range and oven is hand-made for you in La Cornue’s atelier outside Paris, you can be confident your personal design tastes will be catered to in meticulous fashion. And whether you prefer brass, steel or copper, your Chateau will come with the finest accent pieces.

A Look At The La Cornue CornuFé Series

Note: Portions of this article are taken from an original series run by this blog.

Ever since Albert Dupuy invented the first La Cornue oven over a century ago, the company has stood at the forefront of cooking design, craftsmanship and innovation. As such, La Cornue has developed a reputation as one of its industry’s leaders, and one of the world’s most luxurious brand names in the world of kitchen design.

Our parent company, Peter Salerno Inc., is proud to not only offer La Cornue’s outstanding line of cooking range products, but to display four La Cornue pieces in our beautiful showroom – a CornuFé range, a CornuFé 1908, a Flamberge Rotisserie, and an absolutely stunning Château range.

Much of our partnership with La Cornue is thanks to the tireless work of our business ally and friend Craig Kmiecik, the East Coast Territory Manager for La Cornue at Purcell Murray Company. For over 30 years, Purcell Murray has personified culinary passion and provided the most exquisite brands of appliances, including La Cornue ovens.

In our opinion, the La Cornue product line begins with the CornuFé Series, the most streamlined and space-efficient line of La Cornue cooking ranges. Although your CornuFé range may be smaller than the CornuFé 1908 or Château range, it certainly does not lack in diversity, power, or beauty.

La Cornue CornuFé Range Specs and Info

Each CornuFé range boasts a choice of either one or two electric convection ovens, which provide seven distinct cooking modes. This allows the CornuFé the versatility needed to fulfill any recipe or culinary creation imaginable. The French enamel side-swing doors allow tremendous ease of entry and motion, and each CornuFé range comes with four interior oven racks – two flat and two dropped. In addition, the CornuFé includes two enamel baking trays and a trivet.

Each of the seven distinct cooking modes in CornuFé range ovens – thaw & serve, convection oven, convection broiling, convection assisted, conventional oven, browning and warming – covers its own array of recipes, foods and preparations. From the even-heat baking of the convection oven mode, to door-closed broiling for meat and fish, to simple crisping of quiches and pizza using the warming feature, the CornuFé range is versatile enough to handle the needs of any chef, home or professional.

The CornuFé range also has a French-inspired five burner cooktop that combines ample cooking space with unmatched power. The cooktop boasts a central, 17,500 BTU burner, three 12,000 BYU burners, and one 6,000 BTU simmer burner. As an optional extra feature, your CornuFé range can also handle a griddle on the cooktop.

Beyond the sheer power, versatility and cooking options the CornuFé range provides, the line is available in eight beautiful colors and three trim accents, which can be combined to match the taste of the owner. CornuFé ranges are available in Gloss Black, Matte Black, Pure White, Ivory White, Provence Blue, Royal Blue (the newest color option), Dark Navy Blue or Stainless Steel, and accented with Satin Chrome, Satin Chrome and Polished Copper, or Satin Chrome and Polished Brass trim.

The CornuFé series is available in two sizes: the CornuFé 90 (90 cm width, or 35.4 inches) and the CornuFé 110 (110 cm width, or 43 inches).

New Peter Salerno Inc. Showroom Vignette to Feature Miele Appliances

It’s quite a special day when the owner of 2015’s NKBA Most Innovative Small Showroom national design award visits the showroom of the hottest appliance supplier in the world. For Peter Salerno and the Peter Salerno Inc. team, their recent visit to the Miele showroom in Princeton, New Jersey, was a wonderful experience.

Peter Salerno Inc. and Miele USA are partnering on a new design vignette in the world-renowned Peter Salerno Inc. showroom (located at 511 Goffle Road in Wyckoff, NJ). Peter’s vision for a modern, transitional kitchen design vignette required the most sophisticated, technologically sound, and streamlined blend of kitchen appliances on the market – and that led him directly to Miele.

Peter Salerno, Anthony Salerno and Oberg & Lindquist manager Bill Volz visited Miele’s Princeton showroom and were treated to a day of product demonstrations, jaw-dropping technological advancements in kitchen appliances, and the company of some of Miele USA’s pre-eminent members.

Peter was accompanied by a “who’s who” of industry leaders from Miele USA:

    • Nick Ord – President of Miele USA
    • Bob Fava – Vice President of Sales
    • Jim Lewis – Business Development Manager
    • Mike Icovino – Director of Builder Sales
    • Mary Moulds- Culinary Advisor
    • Daniel Gallagher, Territory Manager – Sales

The centerpiece of the Miele showroom tour (and of Peter Salerno’s upcoming transitional kitchen vignette) is undoubtedly the Miele Combi-steam oven – which is is quite possibly the most versatile, sophisticated oven in the world. With over 20 unique program settings (over 20!) and 8 features and functions exclusive to Miele alone, its functionality alone makes it one of the most impressive kitchen appliances the staff at Peter Salerno Inc. has ever seen.

Miele’s Combi-Steam oven offers the full functionality of a steam oven AND the full functionality of a convection oven in one appliance. Beyond that, the combi-steam feature allows you to use both steam and convection technologies together, making this Miele oven the only appliance you need to prepare every possible facet and course of a meal – at the same time!

Peter and his team were also treated to a demonstration of the Miele Generation 6000 Coffee System. The new coffee system includes a new CupSensor, EasyClick Milk System and One Touch for Two features. Exclusive to Miele, the CupSensor automatically adjusts the height of the spout to the optimum position for different cup and glass sizes.

What other outstanding features and Miele appliances will accompany Peter Salerno’s world-class, award-winning custom kitchen design elements in the brand new Peter Salerno Inc. transitional kitchen vignette? Stay tuned!

The new Miele Combi-Steam oven is quite possibly the most versatile, sophisticated oven in the world. With over 20 unique program settings (over 20!) and 8 features and functions exclusive to Miele alone, its functionality alone makes it one of the most impressive kitchen appliances we at Peter Salerno Inc. have ever seen.

And that doesn’t even take in account how beautiful it is!

Recently, Peter Salerno visited the Miele facility in Princeton, New Jersey and was shown first-hand all the awe-inspiring features of the new Miele Combi-Steam oven. So we can tell you with first-hand knowledge how incredible this oven truly is.

(Scroll down for an exclusive video of the Miele MasterChef function in action!)

Miele Combi-Steam Oven: Features & Functionality
Miele’s Combi-Steam oven offers the full functionality of a steam oven AND the full functionality of a convection oven in one appliance. Beyond that, the combi-steam feature allows you to use both steam and convection technologies together, making this Miele oven the only appliance you need to prepare every possible facet and course of a meal – at the same time!

The Miele Combi-Steam oven allows users to pre-set up to 10 programmable stages in a single cooking process, adapt the moisture setting from 0% to 100%, and comes with an on-board wired roast probe. The steam oven, convection oven, and combi-steam oven 3-in-1 features allow for perfect baking, cooking and roasting results in any combination.

The oven also features an “XL Cavity” – in other words, the interior oven space is expansive, allowing for the preparation of large and/or multiple dishes. Complete meals can be prepared for multiple people at the same time.

Other exclusive features of the Miele Combi-Steam oven include:

  • Keep Warm Function (food is kept automatically at serving temperature for 15 minutes after program has ended);
  • PerfectClean (easy, quick clean-up);
  • Condensate Container (excess steam collection to maintain pleasant kitchen climate);
  • Menu Cooking; and
  • Optional Accessories, such as multi-purpose trays and combination racks.

Miele Combi-Steam Oven: Program Settings

With over 20 unique program settings, the Miele Combi-Steam oven is as versatile as it is efficient. The Miele design team thought of every potential cooking scenario when adopting programmable technology for this oven. Don’t believe us? There are settings for added humidity, canning, and even a Sabbath Mode for 72-hour preparation.

Among the over 20 programs available in the Miele Combi-Steam oven, here are some of the most impressive and/or useful ones:

  • Combi Steam with Convection Bake
  • Combi Steam with Broil
  • Surround
  • Maxi Broil
  • MasterChef and MasterChef Gourmet (WATCH THE VIDEO BELOW)

 

Miele Combi-Steam Oven: Appearance
We’ve gotten this far in our overview of the Miele Combi-Steam oven, and we haven’t even touched on its aesthetic beauty and sleek design.

The oven is designed to look like the rest of Miele’s Generation 6000 appliances, and flows beautifully with the Generation 6000 Coffee System, Dishwasher, and other new Miele appliances. The oven’s Clean Touch Steel (trademark) is resistant to smudges, scratches and fingerprints as well.
