40 Years ago a master chef had a dream, a dream to perfect the frying pan. Norbert Woll started his journey by selling cookware in 1974 and founded Norbert Woll GmbH in 1979 to start realising his dream.

WOLL presented its first cookware, manufactured using its original aluminium permanent mould casting technique in 1983. It is this technique that, over 35 years later, still makes the WOLL ìMade in Germanyî frying pans, pots and casseroles unique in terms of quality and cooking results.

To this day WOLL continues with the same passion and vision, working tirelessly to push the standards of cooking perfection to bring you the most extraordinary cookware.


ìWOLL professional cast productsî are now a by-word for first-class quality, long-lasting non-stick coatings, tasteful design and the best possible cooking results.

A large number of patents and innovations on features, as the WOLL detachable handles, the high-tech production methods and specialised handcraft, make WOLL products unique in terms of quality, reliability, design and functionality.

WOLL is determined to continue on the successful path it has laid over the last 40 years, not only in terms of the products it makes, but also in terms of its sales activities.

The brand is excellently placed on national and international markets, leaving the company well positioned to secure steady sales growth for the WOLL brand. WOLLís mission is to bring inspiration and innovation to foodies everywhere by producing extraordinary cookware in the pursuit of perfecting the art of cooking.
