La Cornue today


La Cornue is a very different French company. We have been enjoying manufacturing exceptional products since 1908, sharing pleasure, refinement and conviviality with the world, federating a unique lifestyle: the French art de vivre.

Albert Dupuy was passionate about cooking and in 1908, he filed a patent for the first vaulted gas oven which would become the masterpiece of La Cornue kitchen ranges.

Through his own passion, his son André Dupuy decided fifty years ago that La Cornue would focus solely on producing excellence and creating the most beautiful ranges in the world. And so, the first superlative range appeared in 1964: the Château La Cornue.

Every Château range created today is an original, individually numbered by the craftsman who created it. It is manufactured as a single unit, to order, assembled by one craftsman. This person will take as long he must to make it unique.


In 2010 and in response to increasingly specific demands for excellence, founder’s grandson, Xavier Dupuy, has provided La Cornue’s Culinary Architecture service, the creation of a complete and bespoke kitchen around La Cornue’s ranges and products. Unique in the world, this service brings together the grand instrument and also the furniture and fittings, the ventilation, refrigerators, wine cellars and utensils…the dream of every exacting amateur cook.

The desire for excellence will always drive connoisseurs and enthusiasts forward. The quality of our work is the cornerstone of our excellent reputation. And success is on the cards: we now have a presence in forty countries through an international network of over seventy galleries.
