Still not very popular in France, the Cuisinart brand is very popular in the United States where it originates. The irony is that, precisely, Cuisinart is of French inspiration since its inventor, Carl Sontheimer, was a true lover of France and wanted to offer American cooks tools worthy of French haute cuisine. In France, the brand is supported by Paul Bocuse, of which he has been the godfather for almost 30 years, and yet the brand remains fairly confidential. This may change this summer since Cuisinart is now tackling gas barbecues by launching a whole range made up of 4 rather high-end gas barbecues. As with all of its products, Cuisinart relies on an all-stainless aesthetic that evokes robustness and elegance.
