In Italy, where the kitchen is the heart of the home, where cooking is a passion and where meals bring friends and family together, Bialetti is found in nine of ten households.
Why? Because like every true Italian, cooking is in our soul. And just as Alfonso Bialetti’s Moka Express revolutionized the art of coffee brewing, we’ve been crafting innovations that advance the art of cooking for nearly a century.
Bialetti began in Italy, but has become a leading brand around the world because our high-quality products bring simplicity, functionality and beauty to the kitchen. Our advanced technology and distinctive styling combine to create cookware that’s simple to use and simply beautiful.
Today, the Bialetti family of products has grown. We bring a multitude of styles and colors to market. But our Italian heritage and passion for cooking live on in every line.

With our unique combination of leading technology, craftsmanship and premium materials we craft the finest cookware. Since 1845 to be precise.
In every curve, edge and surface we celebrate our experience and passion. We are proud of the fact that some of our employees have been working at Fissler for over 30, some even over 40 years – just like their parents and grandparents before them. This has allowed us to develop ideas and enrich our know-how across generations leading to Fissler’s legacy of innovations.
As a family-owned business, however, Made in Germany also means we maintain our production site in Germany. Since its foundation in Idar-Oberstein in 1845 by Carl Philipp Fissler, Fissler has been deeply rooted in the region of Rhineland-Palatinate. It is here where we manufacture our own tools, train future generations, continue to innovate and ensure perfect quality.
From our home we come to yours: inspiring and empowering passionate cooks around the world. Crafting premium cookware in appreciation for the best ingredients, the cook and the special moments with the people we cook for.
GreenPan is passionate about healthy cooking. We launched our ceramic coated pans in 2007, and have seen millions of consumers join in on the ceramic revolution! GreenPan has changed the material which families across the globe cook with, and will continue to invest in healthy technologies. Healthy cooking is not only about the foods you use: it is also about the right cookware! GreenPan cookware is coated with Thermolon™, a ceramic non-stick coating which is safe to use.
Not only does our cookware feature a healthy coating, we make non-stick pans that allow you to prepare great dishes. All the products look great and feature premium materials in a clever design. But most of all, GreenPan cookware performs! We use extra thick bases for our frypans so heat distribution is excellent and there is no deforming of the frypan.
Our frypans also feature ergonomic stay-cool Bakelite or oven-safe stainless steel handles for great handling and convenience. Also, the Thermolon™ ceramic non-stick coating allows the pan to release great flavor and they are super easy to clean!
GreenPan tries to produce products as responsibly as possible. For a start, GreenPan products are cadmium and lead free. Also, 60% less CO2 is emitted during the curing phase of production of Thermolon™ coatings, compared to the emissions during the curing phase of production of traditional coatings on an aggregate level worldwide.
We also process used materials into new products to prevent waste of potentially useful materials. In this way, we use upcycled stainless steel for all our handles.

Innovative tools for the creative chef — that’s what iSi brings to the table. And we’ve been at it for nearly 200 years with distribution in over 70 countries. Our dedicated sales and customer service teams are committed to providing an outstanding experience that helps you get the most out of the iSi System. Our products are designed and crafted to be unique, useful and reliable — Whip Up Something Fresh.
How did a product originating in a small, Austrian factory in 1964 come to be a favorite means of expressing the creative imagination of chefs from around the world? The journey is remarkable. And the results have been not only inspirational, but also visually exciting; serving food with flavor and quality that is a fundamental element of modern cuisine.
The product I am referring to is the iSi Culinary System of food whippers and gas chargers – a unique and inseparable combination that can help turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. The iSi culinary innovators, among the leading chefs worldwide, embrace the desire and demand for better food and continuously bring insights of chemistry and physics to food and food preparation.
When we built the system, we had little idea of how much chefs from around the world would find new uses that enhanced their cuisine. We learned from them and we continued to improve the system, added new tools, and discovered new applications. Our constant connection with chefs and culinary creators allowed us to innovate in tandem, enabling our whipper system to evolve into an even more useful, multi-functional tool.
The iSi Culinary System has been called an Innovation Machine. But it is only potential energy until realized by the user. This essential component is the vision and creativity of the person using the equipment – resulting in some of the most amazing new applications in food preparation including soups, sauces, foams, desserts, and beverages.
We’ve adopted “Whip up Something Better” as our challenge and promise to our customers and all the creative food professionals we interact with. The “better” is the potential of our whipper system in lowering costs, process improvement, reducing calories, improving presentation, enabling fresher, more natural ingredients and better, more intense flavors.
Followers of this blog already have seen many examples of both the “one off” and volume applications of the iSi Culinary System. As we enter the 6th decade of our company history, we are focused on increasing our blog activity to share more information, more often with you – our partners in creativity – who seek information about and contribute their inspiration to our Innovation Machine., the iSi Culinary System.

By now, cooking aficionados worldwide are familiar with the story: A Canadian housewife commandeers one of her husband’s favorite woodworking tools and discovers it effortlessly produces the lightest, most wonderful orange zest she could have ever imagined. It’s 1994, her Armenian Orange cake is a huge success and her husband’s Microplane® rasp has morphed into a must-have kitchen grater. It seemed as if a star was born overnight, but it didn’t happen quite that fast, in fact, it took over thirty years.
With just a few modifications, and a slight change in our marketing plan, an entire new product line of graters for home cooks and professional chefs was introduced. The response was extraordinary. Since that time, Microplane graters have distinguished themselves from other graters by using that signature chemical process to create ultra sharp cutting edges. Unlike stamped graters, they effortlessly cut through hard and soft foods without tearing or shredding.

In keeping with our identity as an independent republic, we designate our employees Ministers, our sales representatives as Ambassadors, our customers as Citizens and retail outlets as Embassies.
With supreme good fortune, we have progressed—constantly enriching people’s lives through the experience of premium teas, education and innovation. Our award-winning packaging includes teas and herbs available in specially designed air-tight, light-resistant tins containing either full-leaf teas and herbs or our signature round, unbleached tea bags, free of unnecessary envelopes, strings, tags or staples. Decaffeinated teas (using a natural CO2 method) varieties are also available. Most of our teas are Certified Gluten-Free by the Gluten-Free Certification Organization (GFCO).
A socially and environmentally responsible business, The Republic of Tea is dedicated to sharing our prosperity by developing products to support worthy organizations, including the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Action Against Hunger and the Whole Planet Foundation. We are also a member of The Ethical Tea Partnership.
