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).

The design professionals at Peter Salerno Inc. know that it isn’t just the unmatched quality of our designs and cabinetry that create an incredible kitchen; the appliances matter too.

La Cornue has created a simple solution: Create a classic looking range that even the most experienced professional chefs will enjoy cooking with. They mix different materials such as stainless steel, copper, and brass with fired porcelain bodies in a wide variety of colors. Because of their performance and timeless appearance they are a common feature in Peter Salerno Inc.’s Tesoro ™ Collection kitchens.

About the La Cornue Appliances

The Château 120 range features two patented La Cornue vaulted ovens, one gas and one electric, to meet the diverse needs of any chef in any circumstance. While our cooktop features its own configuration, your Château 120 range may be customized in any one of nine different configurations.

The Château series features almost limitless combinations of cooktops, sizes, colors and accent/trim colors. Our particular Château is the Château 120 range in French blue, which provides not only world-class cooking amenities but a striking addition to the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom.

Also utilized by Master Chef Michael Latour in this special video presentation is the Flamberge Rôtisserie, an open-faced rotisserie unit set beneath a rear wall of cast iron. The evenness of the Flamberge Rôtisserie’s cooking configuration makes it the gold standard for spit roasting, roasting small game birds, vegetables, chicken or fish. The accompanying Maison La Cornue drip tray allows the chef to collect juices to accent the taste of accompanying side dishes or vegetable servings.

Once again, the Peter Salerno Inc. showroom features the Flamberge Rôtisserie in stunning French Blue to match the eye-catching beauty of our Château 120 range. For more information about La Cornue and its world-class line of cooking ranges and appliances, visit the official La Cornue USA website.
