Announced as Grundig's official brand ambassador earlier in the year,
Bottura has worked closely with the Grundig, to design a small domestic
kitchen appliance collection which marries premium quality with design.

Designed to meet the demands of home cooks who want a durable
high-quality product without compromising on design, the appliances were
tested in Bottura's professional kitchen in his Michelin-star restaurant
Osteria Francescana by the chef and his team.

Building on Grundig's heritage of harmonious design, quality and
innovation, the Grundig Massimo Bottura collection includes a Kitchen
Mixer, Toaster, Coffee Machine, Power Blender and Hand Blender, all
adorned with Bottura's signature and his famous quote ‘cooking is an
act of love'
, which represents the shared ethos of the chef and
Grundig on the importance of respecting food.

Inspired by Massimo's personality and obsession with quality, the range
is distinctive in a powerful matte black symbolising Massimo's strong
character, and antique-gold to showcase the value of food. The exclusive
collection helps home cooks celebrate the joy, love and art that goes
into home cooking.

This is the first product collaboration with a kitchen brand for the
chef, who is recognised as one of the world's most influential creative
geniuses by The New York Times and whose restaurant Osteria Francescana
recently topped the 2018 World's Best Restaurants list for the second
time since 2016.

Hakan Bulgurlu, CEO of Arçelik parent company of Grundig, commented
on the new product line:

"Grundig has a known heritage of premium refined design, without
compromising on functionality or quality. We're excited to launch our
first official product collaboration with Massimo, who shares our
passion for innovation, quality and design. This is just the first of
our collaborations with Massimo, which draws on his experience in the
industry and his creativity and allows our customers to access unique
exclusive products for their home."

Massimo Bottura, Michelin-star chef and Grundig Brand Ambassador says:

"The home kitchen holds a special place in my heart, where love,
creativity and memories are made and shared. As a child in Modena, I
would often be found hiding under the kitchen stable while my
grandmother rolled pasta and folded tortellini. During these times, one
of the most important lessons I learned from her was to respect food and
not let anything go to waste. My passion and vision for cooking was
built upon these values. I'm very happy to collaborate with Grundig on
this collection and hope it will raise awareness with home cooks to
respect food, waste less and be more creative, as cooking is an act of
