During the Crusades and the bloody struggle for power, tens of thousands of knights from all over Europe flocked to Germany. Their goal was the famous gun workshops of Lower Saxony, famous for exceptionally light and reliable daggers. The name of these daggers, which had a crushing force in battles, was Röndell.
A well-known German restaurateur Gustav Schmidt acquires and reconstructs the plant for the production of metal utensils in the West German city of Salzgitter. Together with a group of engineers from the University of Bavaria, he starts to improve the existing technologies for the production of tableware and to develop completely new ones.
Röndell, a new trademark, is registered. At its first presentation, Gustav Schmidt utters the words that defined the spirit, the strategy and the purpose of Röndell: "Tradition and nobility of knight weapons must find a continuation in dishware for the kitchen."
Röndell starts to produce steel cookware for professional chefs. The use of the latest technologies and materials of the highest quality in the production very soon provides Röndell with recognition and popularity among the masters of cooking – chefs of leading European restaurants, bars, cafes.
The Röndell range is complemented by a range of aluminum cookware.
For 12 years already, Röndell has been firmly holding the leading position in the market of professional tableware for the masters of Haute cuisine.
Using similar professional-oriented technologies and materials, Röndell is setting up the production of tableware for the home.
