What Makes ILVE Ovens Special?
Founded in 1952, ILVE has been a leading manufacturer for nearly 70 years and adds real character to your kitchen.
Focusing on handmade commercial-grade ovens believed to be among the world’s finest cooking appliances. All ILVE ranges are made from 304, surgical-grade, non-magnetic stainless steel. When you purchase an ILVE oven, you’re buying an appliance that is rust-proof, durable, and more hygienic than the average brand.
Features of ILVE Ovens
Some of the features that make ILVE ranges stand head and shoulders above its competitors include:
- Quickstart pre-heating functionality that brings your temperature up to 350°f in less than 6 minutes
- Dual capillary thermostats for more accurate temperatures
- Turbowave cooking that reduces food shrinkage and splatter
- Solid metal handles and knobs as well as heavily insulated oven cavities that protect your surrounding cabinetry
- Fully removable doors and glass for easy deep-cleaning
Most ILVE ovens come with ten cooking functions, including Pizza, Lower Floor Heating, Upper Element, Fan Grill, Fan Assisted and Fan Forced, Conventional Grill with Rotisserie, Quick Start, and Defrost.
ILVE ovens contain cavity cooling fans that will switch on once the oven reaches a designed temperature and will continue to run after it’s switched off. Ranges are equipped with a BIO-safe triple-coated glass door which prevents overheating and makes it safer to use.
What are the different style of Ranges ILVE makes?
ILVE produces three different lines, the Professional Plus, Nostalgie, and Majestic II.
The Professional Plus and Nostalgiue are similarly built featuring a similar high end finishing and BTUs. They come in all gas or dual fuel options. The Nostalgie boasts unique retro features for enthusiasts who want modern appliances with a sleek, nostalgic design.
The Majestic II is ILVE’s most technologically advanced series of ranges, with top-of-the-line features including optional induction ranges and self-cleaning ovens (you can review a complete comparison of the various models here).
The Professional Plus and Nostalgie ranges are available in all-gas (gas cooktop and oven) and dual fuel (gas cooktop with electric oven). The Majestic II offers dual fuel and electric ranges with an induction cooktop and electric ovens.
Sizing varies between the compact 60cm unit and the large 150cm wide ovens. Even the larger electric ovens are extremely energy efficient, so you don’t have to worry about your utility bill skyrocketing.
With the exception of the induction cooktops, ILVE burners are made from solid brass rather than the standard aluminum, ensuring greater stability at high temperatures and reducing the risk of rusting.
Color, Trims & Finish Options
ILVE offers ten different color finishes and four trim options, which provides the buyer with the option of thousands of different unique finishes. This versatility means that your order will be custom-built according to your taste and preferences.
The Nostalgie series offers a modern take on country-style ovens with brass, chrome, or bronze fittings, while the Majestic II offers trim options in chrome, brass, bronze, or copper.
Exterior finish options for the Nostalgie and the Majestic II include Emerald Green, Matte Black, Antique White, Burgundy, Stainless Steel, and more. The Professional Plus is available in White, Stainless Steel, Matte Graphite, or Glossy Black with Stainless Steel trim.
