ritterwerk, established by Franz Ritter in 1905, is a traditional Bavarian company that looks back with pride on more than 100 years of history. ritterwerk is a medium-sized company that develops and manufactures free-standing and built-in household appliances that help make routine kitchen tasks a little easier.
ritterwerk has adopted “made in Germany” as its company philosophy. To ritterwerk, this means much more than creating and protecting German jobs. It also means meeting the highest quality standards, choosing the right materials, and applying a functional design. In this way, ritterwerk remains true to the Bauhaus tradition of the 1920s.
When multi slicer contura 3 was created in 2008, it set new design standards in all aspects of functionality. It was followed in 2010 by the volcano, which is probably the most streamlined toaster in the world. The fontana 5 kettle follows in the same footsteps, both in terms of its name and of its features, which are typical of ritterwerk's Lifestyle products. Currently the first foldable ritter slicer icaro 7 in full metal construction has been launched.
For ritterwerk, the focus is on durability, not disposability. Today, at its own workshop in Gröbenzell near Munich, the company offers the same repair and replacement service to customers that it has offered for decades.
