An aspiration of the private chef, and the professional chef at home, the EB oven
has been a Gaggenau icon for over 30 years. Its on-going story will evolve with
more insights being added to this page.
This oven is a 90 cm testament to the Gaggenau difference, its heritage and traditional avant-garde. Wildly individual, distinctive and iconic, it is the heart of the kitchen. This is a predominantly hand-built oven, in a world of the machine made appliances. The touch of highly skilled hands upon high quality materials imbues this oven with something akin to soul. Add to this an imposing design and unfailing performance, and you have all the elements of a classic.
“In our 333rd year, it seemed only right that our icon should be rejuvenated and renamed. State of the art, soul of the artisan: The EB 333.” Sven Schnee, Head of Global Brand Gaggenau
The making of a true original
In 1986 the original EB 374 was a revelation to Europe. A personal project of Georg von Blanquet, owner of Gaggenau and passionate private chef, this enigmatic, brilliant and cavernous oven was inspired by the substantial American range cookers. Expanded to a revolutionary 90 cm width, the oven was a design statement that transformed the kitchen and became an almost instant icon and favourite of private chefs. Such was its avant-garde design that little was changed over the next three decades.
