Founded in Switzerland in 1925, Kuhn Rikon developed their first range of 'Duro' cookware specifically to work on the new generation of electric stoves that were being developed in Europe at the time. These stoves were the forerunners of modern electric hobs and Kuhn Rikon pans were amongst the first brands of cookware to give outstanding performance on electric hobs. The Duromatic pressure cooker was first developed in 1949 and over the next 20 years it set new standards for simplicity and performance.
To this day the Swiss made Duromatic pressure cooker from Kuhn Rikon is regarded as the benchmark for quality, practicality and ease of use. It's no coincidence that we've sold them at Steamer Trading since our very beginning. In recent years Kuhn Rikon have earned themselves the further reputation for great little knives with their ultra sharp and colourful Colori range. These outstanding knives are great value and come with a very practical little sheath to protect the blade whether it's in the kitchen drawer or out at a picnic.
