The fascination of V-ZUG

The secret of magnificent moments is in the details. The view from Mount Rigi enchants you with an impressive interplay of light, colours and cloud patterns coming together to make a dramatic spectacle of nature. V-ZUG appliances have the same effect: When design, craftsmanship, functionality and service are perfectly orchestrated, moments arise that have a lot in common with the view from Mount Rigi. Welcome to V-ZUG

Inspiration at its best

Even though V-ZUG kitchen appliances are designed for use at home, some top chefs use them in a professional environment. Recipes and tips – created by professionals for V-ZUG appliances – click here.

Much, much more than aesthetics

V-ZUG is getting spring started with a brand-new product line in the kitchen products range. The new models are an evolution of our classic appliances and will inspire you with new functional features and an elegant design.

In the kitchen range we introduce the first product line with full graphic displays and some of the appliances even feature an integrated touch screen. The way the appliances are controlled has been completely redesigned and is now based on a central adjusting knob used in combination with the displays so there are no extra silicone buttons or controls.

The display also visualises step-by-step procedures as well as pre-programmed menus, inviting you to embark on culinary voyages of discovery. Special display features mean that all function displays become invisible when the appliance is switched off. The appliances also come with an optional retractable handle to enhance elegant simplicity.

Steam cooker, oven and microwave in one

The Combi-Steam MSLQ allows you to set different operating modes, including heat, steam and microwave. Using sophisticated combinations of these operating modes, cooking time can be reduced by up to 75%. And some 30% more minerals and vitamin C can be preserved than would be possible with conventional preparation methods.

V-ZUG and Switzerland

Innovation, precision and quality: The great values of a small Alpine country have spread all over the world. Companies like V-ZUG have had a hand in that happening.

Switzerland is a nation of inventors, the land of precision watches and home to world-famous chocolate. Sounds like a cliché? The fact is: “Swiss made” is regarded around the world as a reliable quality label. This honourable reputation is no accident. Numerous Swiss personalities and companies have contributed to establishing it over decades. V-ZUG has as well.

V-ZUG has been developing and manufacturing products in the heart of Switzerland for over 100 years.

Worldwide, the company helps to strengthen the traditional values of the country and the reputation of the technology location Switzerland. And: V-ZUG is committed to the environment, both locally and internationally. Perhaps this commitment has something do to with the fact that people here have natural treasures like the Pilatus, Mount Rigi and Lake Zug at their doorstep.

V-ZUG and the world

In 18 countries, from Turkey to Singapore and Australia, people who expect a lot from their household appliances go with our products made in Zug. In late 2014 V-ZUG opened a flagship store in Shanghai. It is the first ZUGORAMA in Asia.

Committed to sustainability

The entire production site, including the logistics centre in Zug, is powered by energy from renewable sources. This is just one example of V-ZUG's diverse activities.

Working to reduce workload

Making domestic work easier and more pleasant – V-ZUG was already working on this mission when Spaceship Enterprise, Woodstock and miniskirts were en vogue. And there is a TV commercial from the 1960s to prove it.

Milestones from more than 100 years

From galvanized sheet metal goods (1913) to the full range of products for the kitchen and laundry room (1976) to energy-saving heat pump technology (2013) – Read V-ZUG's whole story.
