Quality and style since 1777. The origin of the Flavel brand can be traced back to 1777, when John Flavel (1754-1834) acquired an iron foundry in Bilton near Rugby. John's son, William, revolutionised cooking with his invention of the Kitchener cooking range in 1829 to replace open fires and spits. Flavel is synonymous with quality and innovation, and these values are maintained throughout the range today. We ensure the quality of the design, materials and construction of our products remain uncompromised. Modern manufacturing techniques used at the state-of-the-art production facility meet the exacting standards of quality required by today's consumers.
