We Need YOUR Help!

Many visitors to the blog have asked me, time and time again, to come up with the TOP 10 list of European kitchen brands. I did not want to post my own selection (which is my own personal opinion), but rather compile others votes into a comprehensive list.

Now that this blog is getting so much traffic, from professionals in the trade, I figured it will be a great place to get your votes.

All that I’m asking for, is your personal TOP 10 list (or TOP 5, if you have no time) of European kitchen brands. You just need to list the brands, in the order that you think.

Please specify what category you are ranking them on – you can rate one category or all of them (one at a time). These are the categories:

– Design and Innovation (style, as well as technology).
– Product Quality.
– Value – quality to price ratio.
– Customer Service – to the dealer and the end user.

There are only 2 requirements –
1. That the product is made in Europe.
2. That the company has a network of dealers, in and outside of Europe.

That’s it – looking forward to see your votes and if you wish to not have your vote published here, just note it on your response and I will insure to keep it private or publish it for you, without your name, which ever you prefer.

    When you have lots of people in the branche visiting this site they won’t name their competitors as favourite :
    I took that in consideration, but if they all name their own brand as favorite and the others as the other 9 best brands, by the time I put it all together, I’ll have a good list… (I hope…:))

    We used to work with INTOTO, but now independently dealing with Leicht, Germany. Personally I just love the German design – it just gives a finish, fit and quality of engineering that’s unsurpassed. Often these days too much empasis is placed on design and too little on build quality – stylish furniture that falls apart is somewhat of a contradiction. That’s what I love about Leicht as a brand; it looks awesome and feels very solid. Super blog BTW and excellent survey – hope to see the results soon!
    Hello and thanks for the response.
    In order to consider your vote, we need a Top 5…

    I think the poggenpohl is the best brand in the world.
    I’d like to give A+++ in about all the things(design,produt quality,etc)
    It’s really good..
    Whether you sell the brand, or own one, it is obvious you like it – we do need your top 5 list though, in order to consider your vote in the count. If everyone just vote for their own brand, the results will be useless…
