“Bertazzoni’s new iPad app is an incredibly useful sales tool for showing our customers Bertazzoni’s latest products and innovative features”
“Today marks a major milestone for the Bertazzoni brand,” said Paolo Bertazzoni, president and fifth-generation owner of Bertazzoni. “This is the single largest new product introduction for the Bertazzoni line in the North American market and I’m proud to put our family name on it. We’re continuing to embrace new product innovation with our next generation of ranges, building on our rich Italian heritage of high-quality engineering and culinary culture that’s made our brand a success for 131 years.”
The Colors of Italy
Color is an essential expression of Italian exuberance and artistic elegance. Bertazzoni’s color inspiration stems from the natural foods of the Emilia-Romagna region, home to the Bertazzoni family and its 131 year old company. To select the exact hue, Bertazzoni looked outside to the local farmer’s markets, mixing rich pumpkin with exotic saffron and juicy persimmon. The result is “Arancio,” a uniquely beautiful deep orange, inspired by Italy’s fruits, vegetables and spices. It’s a color that becomes a true focal point for any kitchen while also harmonizing with the overall kitchen décor.
In the Professional Series, the stunning new “Arancio” color is available in all gas and dual-fuel models, in three sizes -- 30”, 36” and 48”. In addition to new “Arancio” (orange), the Bertazzoni Professional Series is available in six rich colors including “Rosso” (red), “Vino” (burgundy), “Nero” (black), “Bianco” (pure white) and “Giallo” (yellow).
“The Bertazzoni family dinner table has always been laden with heirloom recipes that encompass the natural foods of the surrounding region,” said Valentina Bertazzoni, brand manager and sixth-generation family executive for Bertazzoni. “The new Arancio range creates a connection between Italian design and our regional cuisine. Arancio’s rich new color, combined with our innovative technology, perfectly encapsulates the essence of the Bertazzoni brand.”
