european kitchen brands

Europeans have been producing kitchens, in factories (vs. carpenter’s shops) for about 100 years now.

The countries that have the largest amount of kitchen brands are: Italy and Germany. They probably produce about 90% of the kitchens sold in Europe. They also are the largest exporters of kitchens outside of Europe.  

You will also find some large kitchen factories in England, France, Denmark, Sweden, Spain and other European countries.

On the right side of the page are the European kitchen companies, by country. If you know a kitchen company, that is not listed, please contact us and will gladly add it.

    Good evening. Thank you for this blog. Quick question: arrex,pedinu,euromobil or hacker? thanks

    HI kitchen guy: I’m considering two kitchens : an Arrex Timo versus a Doimo Materia. Do you have a view in the respective quality of each?


  3. Hi. A local retailer sells Italian kitchen furniture from Imab, NetCucine, Creo Kitchens and Lube. As I could not find evidence of any of the first three on your website, could you please rank these 4 according to their quality? Thanks.

    • Tony – Creo is Lube (same company). NetCucine is a local Italian companys that sells locally only. Low cost/no frills product. Imab is really a furniture company, making very little kitchens…
      from these 4 – Lube.

    Dear kitchen guy ,

    Thumbs up for your great blog !
    How do you compare Burger kitchens to Schmidt ? I have received offers from both dealers and i was wondering whom do you rate better ?


  5. Hello Kitchenguy

    I posted a question on your blog but got no reply so I’m hoping this one find you…

    I’m trying to find out about Maistri Italian kitchens, I cannot find out too much about them so I’m hoping you could tell me where they stand in quality & price? A retailer called Cococucine sales them in London, they seem to be quite ‘high-end’ looking at their pictures and pricing?

    Great site!

    Kind regards

  6. Do you have any familiarity with Durinox steel from Blanco? It looks beautiful as countertops offered by Boffi. It is promoted as much less scratch resistant but how true is that ov weer the years in use? It is a relatively new install in the showroom and is unexplored to pots & pans & dishes that might actually scratch. Traditional stainless steel just gets too many scratches as countertops for my taste.

  7. How would you rate Nolte in terms of quality and price? Are they’re products all made in Germany? Is their hardware of good quality?

  8. what are the 5 most Italian brands you would recommend that have the lowest prices ?

    I’ve been recommended Astra instead of Pedini cabinets in Los Angeles by Pedini LA. Pedini is 25% more expensive and their lead time for delivery is 3 weeks longer than Astra. Is it worth the price difference and longer wait time?

    • Lynn Vaz – like the old saying goes: “You get what you pay for”… and in your case I will also add: “Good things come to those who wait”!
      You don’t have to be an expert to see the difference – look at the box constrauction, the under cabinet LED lights, the finishing, not to mention the design options and so much more…

    One more thing, I have a time constraint.Is there any equivalent quality kitchen I can get manufactured in North America with a shorter lead time? I’m looking at High gloss white lacquer. Please reply as soon as possible as I have to sign the contract in order for Pedini LA to order my Astra or Pedini kitchen. Astra’s timeline is mid November, Pedini is first week December. I would love a quicker production time without sacrificing quality. Thanks.

    • Lynn Vaz – see my last comment: “Good things come to those who wait”. You’re not doing this kitchen for a couple of months – you want it to last for years. A few weeks for much better quality is an easy choice… Also, if there was ANYTHING made locally, that was even close to the quality of Pedini, at a price that is even close to theirs, do you rthink they would be selling so well allo ver the US…?

      • Thank you. I could not find any reviews on PediniLA. I was surprised that they tried to push Astra without informing me that it was not Pedini. As I mentioned, the Pedini cabinets are 25% more than Astra. This is an insurance payout. I don’t really want to come out of pocket for the additional cost. Can you recommend any other lower priced cabinets than Pedini with better quality than Astra?

        • Lynn,
          It is hard – Pedini is a good value, so “better quality than Astra” will be… Pedini…

          • Hi again. So PediniLA is recommending the Pedini Eko line to come close to the Astra price. The Integra line was more expensive at 25% more than Astra.

          • Lynn – the Integra is their higher end model (thicker doors, etc.). Like I wrote to you on 8/26: “You get what you pay for”… We all would love to drink champeign and pay for beer…

  11. can you advice us please if there is a dealer of Dema Cucine here in the Philippines?

  12. Hi Kitchenguy, I am choosing in Ukraine between Leicht or Pedini, which would you recommend quality wise? I am also looking at Valcucine Forma Mentis, but it is more expensive…

  13. Is Arclinea a step down?

  14. What is the best quality: Strato, Toncelli, Bulthaup, Boffi?

  15. Hi Kitchen guy ,

    I am based in India and am looking for a kitchen that is durable and wanted to know which is better in terms of quality and after sales (replacement etc ) in India
    - hacker or Veneta

    Also , would you know if using Hettich accessories and getting the shutters & frames built by locally is a good option


    • Deepa – Haecker is MUCH better.
      No – getting the shutters & frames built by locally is NOT a good option…
