In 2015, Blanco was one of the oven brands rated in our Canstar Blue customer satisfaction survey. Here’s a brief rundown on Blanco ovens. And you can check the survey results here.
The people behind the brand
Blanco & Co was founded in 1925 in Germany by Heinrich Blanc as a manufacturer of copper-plated containers. In 1931, Blanc joined forces with Karl Fischer to form E.G.O., which is now one of the largest component suppliers to appliance manufacturers in Europe. Blanco produced one of the first hydraulic 4-column presses in 1942, to manufacture products for the commercial catering industry.
In 1948, the first branch in Germany employed over 300 people. In 1978, Blanco arrived in Australia, and now it is one of our largest brands for ovens, cooktops, rangehoods, dishwashers, sinks, taps and environmental waste management systems.
To mark 90 years of excellence, Blanco adopted the new international motto, “Quality makes the difference”. They demonstrate this even in little things like their online cookbook, which is filled with innovative recipes that customers are sure to enjoy making at home. (We recommend the roasted pumpkin, spinach and feta slice.)
When Blanco started producing ovens
In 1963, Blanco began producing kitchen and tabletop appliances. In 1980, they expanded their range to include stainless steel cooking appliances.
Some Blanco oven innovations
1994: EGO designs and launches the first electronic touch controls for ceramic cooktops.
2003: Blanco wins their first global iF product design award.
2007: Blanco wins their first Red Dot Design Award.
2011: Blanco wins The Good Design award for their CI804L induction cooktop.
BOSE635AX: Just tell this oven what you’re cooking and it will recommend how long you need to cook it, what temperature to use, and which shelf it should be on. Pyrolytic ECO settings mean your oven can clean itself more efficiently than ever before.
BOSE607X: This model has a triple-glazed thermo-reflective door that is cool to the touch even when the oven is on full blast. Telescopic runners on each shelf mean you don’t risk burning yourself when taking things in and out of this big oven. Catalytic liners mean your oven cleans itself.
BOSE714PTX: HeatBoost means pre-heating takes no time at all.
