Château Series Frequently Asked Questions
What distinguishes the Château Series from other professional-quality stoves?
The Château Series delivers a superior cooking appliance that embraces and embodies fine French cooking. From start to finish, each stove is custom built to the specifications of its owner, entirely by hand, using parts crafted from the finest metals and other materials. Upon completion, the owner's name is engraved on a brass plaque fastened to the stove. The beauty of each model goes beyond its distinctive look and choices of 26 colors and 12 metal finishes. The combination of features like the vaulted ovens, simmering plate, and grill and griddle options distinguish the Château Series from every other commercial-or professional-quality stove.
Why is one oven heated by gas, the other by electricity?
Both ovens create the quality of heat and humidity that are ideal for certain types of foods. In the gas oven, moist intense heat is perfect for roasting meats and poultry, as well as for baking bread. The electric oven, with top and bottom elements, is better suited to baking pastries and casseroles.
After I order a Château Series range, when will it be delivered?
The estimated delivery date quoted at the time of order generally allows a lead time of 12 to 14 weeks. Each range is hand assembled by one worker over a period of three months, then shipped to the United States via air freight. When ordering, remember that the company's workshop closes for the entire month of August.
