Where are Forno Ranges Made?

Understanding where Forno products are manufactured and how they provide customer support is helpful when deciding if a Forno range is right for you.

Forno manufactures all its appliances in China, where they utilize European design processes and fabrication methods. This commitment to European design standards ensures that the appliances are not only durable but also meet commercial-grade quality, which is essential for any professional or home kitchen.

Despite its overseas manufacturing location, Forno is dedicated to providing excellent customer support and service to its North American market. The brand's customer care team and service center are located in Montreal, ensuring that any necessary repairs or replacements can be handled quickly and efficiently. This means that you can trust in the quality and reliability of Forno appliances, knowing that support is readily available when needed.

What is the Best Forno Gas Range?

Forno manufactures over twenty all-gas ranges, so there’s a large variety of options to choose from if you’re considering a Forno gas range. The double-oven Forno Galiano 48″ Freestanding Gas Range is one of our best-selling gas ranges here at Rustic Kitchen and Bath, and the following features make it easy to see why.

Powerful Cooktop:

The 48-inch All Gas Forno Galiano boasts an impressive 8-burner cooktop with over 100,000 combined BTUs. One feature that particularly stands out is the sealed dual-ring burner, perfect for boiling or searing, yet versatile enough for simmering delicate sauces or melting chocolate.

Continuous Cast-Iron Grates:

Unlike individual or segmented grates, continuous cast iron grates form a seamless and unbroken surface across the entire cooking area. Continuous cast-iron grates are not uncommon on today’s top kitchen ranges, but it’s important to point out that their inclusion on the 48-inch All Gas Forno Galiano means you won’t have to worry about the risk of tipping or wobbling when working with larger or heavier cookware.

Right-Side Convection Oven:

The right-side oven of the 48-inch All Gas Forno Galiano features a convection fan function with true European convection. This function helps ensure even heat distribution to help achieve perfectly cooked dishes with a golden brown finish. Pairing the convection feature with 3-layer glass and 6.58 cubic feet of total oven capacity means the 48-inch All Gas Forno Galiano delivers a premium baking and roasting experience.

If you don’t think you need all that cooking power and space but want to stick with an all-gas configuration, consider the 30-inch Forno Lazio.

What is the Best Forno Dual Fuel Range?

If you prefer the power of a gas cooktop paired with the precision of an electric oven (known as dual fuel), the Forno Galiano 36″ Freestanding French Door Dual Fuel Range is a true gem in the world of dual fuel kitchen ranges. Blending style, design, and functionality, the 36-inch Dual Fuel French Door Forno Galiano caught our eye as soon as it was launched in 2023.

Forno also introduced an all-electric 36-inch French Door Galiano. While gas cooktops are often preferred for their power, we have had nothing but positive feedback on the performance of the all-electric cooktop which offers a professional and modern look.

Which Forno Range is Right for You?

The choice between a Dual Fuel, Gas, or Electric Forno Range ultimately depends on your cooking preferences and needs. We recommend taking the following factors into consideration when making your decision:

  1. Cooking Style: Do you prefer the precision of electric cooking for baking or the responsiveness of gas for stovetop cooking?
  2. Available Hookups: Check if your kitchen is equipped for the type of range you prefer. Dual Fuel Ranges require both gas and electrical connections.
  3. Design and Aesthetics: Think about how the range will fit into your kitchen's design. 
  4. Budget: Your budget might also influence your decision, as there tend to be some price differences between gas, dual fuel, and electric ranges as well as differences in the cost of operating with each fuel type.

Whichever option you choose, a Forno kitchen range is sure to be a statement piece and a reliable workhorse. Happy cooking!
