With 100,000 products manufactured per year and a turnover of +32% compared to the previous year, the Krampouz factory in Finistère has reached the physical limits of its deployment. The expansion of the Pluguffan plant, where the group has been established since 2009, has become necessary.

Majority shareholder since 2019, the Seb group is therefore investing more than 5 million euros to extend and modernize the production area. ” This expansion is part of Groupe SEB’s desire to maintain and promote industrial know-how in France. Labeled Living Heritage Company since 2017, all appliances bearing the Krampouz stamp are designed and manufactured in Pluguffan, in Finistère ” , specifies the shareholder.

BORA REVOLUTIONARY STEAM OVEN

Passionate about steam.
Having developed the revolutionary BORA extraction technology, we are now using steam in its finest form – for cooking. The BORA X BO – the first flex oven and professional appliance for the household sector – is bringing the new comfort of cooking into the kitchen.

Foldable 19-inch full-graphic touch display,
high-resolution, with sensor technology
similar to a smartphone

BORA Clear View provides good visibility: the steam is automatically extracted backwards out of the oven chamber before the door is opened. This prevents users from getting a face full of steam when they open the door. The duration of the extraction and the amount of steam to be extracted can be freely adjusted. Users can also completely disable the steam extraction or open the door before the steam has been extracted.

If the BORA Smart Open door function has been activated, the steam will be extracted from the oven chamber before the door is unlocked. This prevents users from getting a face full of steam when they open the door. If they leave the door in the same position after it has been unlocked, it will close automatically again after a while – protecting the food and saving energy!

BORA X BO thoroughly cleans and descales its oven chamber with hot steam and the environmentally friendly active ingredients in the BORA cleaning cartridge. This cleaning method is extremely convenient for users and ensures a long appliance life.

The unique multi-point food thermometer enables users to reliably determine the optimum cooking temperature. Located at the top of the oven chamber, it is inserted into the food to be cooked, e.g. meat or fish. The user does not even have to search for the optimum measuring position as there are multiple measuring points along the probe so as to always detect the coldest area in the food. Once the food has reached the pre-programmed target temperature, the cooking process automatically finishes.
