Lagostina’s core values of impeccable craftsmanship, high-quality materials, technological innovation, and elegant design have endured since our very first cookware in 1901. Today, as a premium cookware brand loved by Canadians, we continue to stand behind these core values.
Founded in Omegna , Italy in 1901 by Carlo Lagostina and his son Emilio, Lagostina quickly became a renowned brand in manufacturing tinplate cookware.
Over the years, the brand continued to innovate- launching the first “Thermoplan” thermo-diffuser base to ensure perfect heat conductivity, and later conceiving the “Pastaiola,” a pot designed to both cook and drain pasta.
In 1934, Lagostina launched “Casa Mia”, the first cookware collection made of stainless steel, which would eventually be exhibited at the MoMA in New York.
