    Our 4 moments of pleasure

    Gourmet moment: Preparing

    Shredding, chopping, foaming or stirring — nothing beats getting to work in the kitchen. Whether cooking for one or spending an evening cooking with friends — from peeling onions to washing vegetables, it's a cosy and enjoyable experience. The practical and beautifully designed kitchen gadgets simplify every step in the kitchen so that nothing can stand in the way of cooking.

    Gourmet moment: Cooking

    Let it bubble, steam and splutter! Now the cooking can begin. The meat is spluttering in the frying pan, the vegetables are cooking gently and there is steam and sizzling in all corners of the room. WMF's innovative pots and frying pans are real team players in the kitchen and offer perfect support to all keen cooks. Cooking is a pleasure and a passion that can be truly experienced with WMF.

    Gourmet moment: Dining

    Lay the table, serve and enjoy! Dinner's ready. The table is laid and the food served — taste does not stop at the food! Whether cooking for friends, family, a birthday or just because: dining is twice as good at an elegantly laid table.
    WMF cutlery and table accessories convey a pure zest for life and make eating a truly pleasurable moment.

    Gourmet moment: Drinking

    Pour out, refill and top up! Before, during and after eating. Infused and poured — drinking is more than just a basic need. WMF products ensure that drinks — with their bubbles, warmth and aromas — can also be savoured. Stylish glasses, as well as tea, coffee and espresso cups, add a touch of class to every meal, while wine decanters make a Bordeaux a real highlight. WMF achieves harmony by combining functional elements with aesthetics, resulting in products that create feel-good moments.

    Everything began with him.
    In 1853, mill owner Daniel Straub, together with the Schweizer brothers, Louis and Friedrich, established the Straub & Schweizer metal works in Geislingen an der Steige, Germany. Only a few years later in 1862, their silver-plated tableware and serving dishes were awarded a medal of distinction at the world exhibition in London.
    Six years later, the first sales subsidiary was founded in Berlin. In 1880, the company merged with the metal works company Ritter & Co. to form the Württembergische Metallwarenfabrik (WMF). From the very outset, the company has felt committed to perfect gourmet moments and perfect cuisine.
    This responsibility is visible and tangible in all its products.
