Italo Ottinetti

Since 1920, the Italo Ottinetti metallurgical company, typical family business, has represented a point of reference in the survey of Italian producers of aluminium pots and utensils for professional and domestic use.

Ninety years of innovation, search for quality, attention to design and absolute attention to customer requirements. These are the objectives that motivated the company in its long history and allowed it to obtain the national and foreign market confidence.

But this success would not be so if the objectives were not always supported by concrete values, first of all the respect and the safety of people, the protection of the territory and of the environment.

Italo Ottinetti uses for its own products only raw materials fit for coming into contact with food - according to the EEC EN 601 and EN 602 standards - and exclusively of Italian origin, continuing to produce in Italy, at the historical site of Baveno, on Lake Maggiore.

A unique environmental context that the company contributes to preserve with a conscious and eco sustainable approach, entrusting the state-of-the-art technology with the purification cycle of process waters, in order to leave a clean world in addition to the pleasures of the kitchen to the new generations.

The story

In 1920, Italo Ottinetti, born in 1898 and veteran of the Great War, together with some partners, established at Baveno, the typical village on Lake Maggiore currently in the province of Verbania, the metallurgical company that is still named after him.

In the small factory, aluminium was a full process: the bar was melted to obtain the plate that in turn was rolled to obtain the disk from which, after pressing or turning, the finished product was obtained.

A purely craft made production of high quality articles that Italo Ottinetti sold personally, travelling all over Italy as far as Sicily. At that time, the range included cutlery, pots and pans and household accessories, as documented by the catalogue of 1925, year in which Italo Ottinetti became the single owner of the company.
