A LONG-LASTING TRADITION
When we build our appliances, we draw on a long-standing tradition of Scandinavian innovation – one that's characterised by a rational approach to solving problems coupled with care, craftsmanship and dedication. And sometimes, we find our inspiration in unusual places. In the Craft range, where Black Steel can be found, inspiration came in the form of an adjustable wrench.
One of the most recognizable types of adjustable wrench was patented by a Swedish inventor in 1892 and still goes by the name of "The Swedish key" in some countries. It's a tough, simple tool, made from three pieces of metal. But it's the kind of tool that you can easily come to think of as a trusty companion. It fulfils a purpose extremely well, in a way that hasn't changed for decades. It has a distinctive aesthetic, in the form of its instantly-recognisable outline. It's simple, robust, difficult to break, and the definition of long-lasting.
Look at one of our Craft ovens, and you'll see something similar. A perfectly-shaped front plate, made from one piece of metal. A tough, ergonomically-shaped handle, and two solid metal dials. These pieces of metal are all fitted together perfectly to create something that looks great, works really well and lasts for ages. A distinct combination of form and function – and one that's made to be a true companion for creative food lovers.
