When looking to add a touch of sophistication to your home, ‘quintessence’ is the word and great luxury appliances the way to go. However, if you are wondering where to start, the following list of popular luxury brands should help set you in the right direction:


AGA is an abbreviation for Aktiebolaget Gas Accumulator. The company is mostly known for producing magnificent cookers and heat storage stoves, although it also makes ventilation hoods, refrigeration products and dishwashers. That said, the inventor of the Aga cooker was a Swedish by the name, Gustaf Dalen. He was a physicist by profession and the founder of the Aga company. The brand’s products are not only made and designed to last, but also to add that classic ambiance to your kitchen.



Miele is a German home and commercial appliance company with an outstanding reputation that is as old as the brand itself. Founded in 1899 by Reinhard Zinkann and Car Miele, its first products were a butter churn, cream separator and tub washing machine, with the range having grown over the years to include cooktops, vacuums, ovens, dryers and coffee makers. In addition, the family-run company is a winner of numerous internationally coveted home appliance awards, with the brand being recognised worldwide for the quality, performance and longevity of its products. If you wish to combine style and durability, the Miele brand won’t disappoint.


Gaggenau is a German company that manufactures high end domestic appliances. It is a subsidiary of BSH Bosch und Siemens Hausgeräte, which is based in Munich. The brand was founded back in 1683, highlighting over three hundred years of experience in the business. It initially manufactured gas, coal and electric stoves and later on incorporated industrial installations for the commercial sector in the 20th century. Gaggenau makes classy dishwashers, cooktops, wine cabinets, wall-mounted combi ovens, warming drawers, and more. The company’s values are passion, leadership ambition, creative excellence and professionalism. On what to expect, its products combine innovative technology, bold lines, durability, ease of use and uncompromising performance, making the brand a great choice for upscale kitchens.



Thermador is a subsidiary of Bosch and has grown in popularity over the years, especially in the luxury segment. It has been in the forefront of revolutionary cooking technology for a period of over seventy years, fusing both classic finishes and great performance. Having produced the first built-in wall oven in the world about fifty years ago, it makes some serious kitchen appliances such as the patented Star® Burner.



Dacor is an American family-run company that designs and manufactures amazing kitchen and home appliances, including humidifiers. It has been in the business for three generations and has products available in over 1,400 retail locations. One of the most notable of its appliances was the 30″ PureConvection™ a self-cleaning built-in wall oven introduced into the market in 1987. The product was instrumental in the transformation of the company’s oven business and is today an industry standard. As a design-oriented brand, it is the visual beauty that sets it apart from others. However, this does not mean that the company veers away from its core principles which are performance, style, innovation, service and craftsmanship; making its products a sensible choice for a lavish yet fully functional contemporary kitchen.
