Milestones

Learning from the past
The German family business was founded in 1845 by Carl Philipp Fissler in Idar-Oberstein. Today the brand stands for cooking with pleasure and passion and is one of the world’s leading brands for high-quality cookware.

Fissler is still family-owned, as it was over 170 years ago, and employs around 700 people. Worldwide a Fissler brand product is bought every three seconds. By the way: some 90% of all products are manufactured in Germany.
