ILVE acquires the assets of Optima

ILVE has completed the acquisition of assets belonging to Optima , a company specialized in the production of cooking appliances based in the province of Modena.

The history of Optima, which has inherited the skills of Terim and Fratelli Onofri, is identified with that of an industrial district that represents one of the Italian excellences in the design and construction of household appliances.

In recent years Optima has been characterized by the production of free standing kitchen blocks, built-in, gas and electric hobs and ovens, pizza and tigelfocaccia ovens.

A wealth of skills that ILVE has decided to preserve and enhance as part of an overall strategic vision that sees the company committed to implementing development plans and growth projects consistent with the brand’s relaunch objectives, in order to be increasingly competitive and proactive in international markets.

Born and raised in 1969 in Campodarsego in the province of Padua, ILVE thus strengthens its vocation as a specialist in cooking systems and steel processing.   

Ilve oven if you need pizza 🍕 in a hurry

ILVE’s 60cm Milano Multifunction Pizza oven features ILVE’s traditional ‘Milano’ styling with embellished handles and control knobs with a TFT touch control display. The 645SNZT4 works as a standard oven whilst mimicking a real pizza stove, meaning you can cook an authentic and delicious pizza is just over 2 minutes. But how?


Preheat the oven by switching on the pizza setting. Simply prepare your pizza base and add your favourite toppings. When the oven reaches a soaring height of 400 C, pop your pizza in. You could be sitting down with your favourite pizza in as little as two and a half minutes! The perfect oven for hosting a family pizza night.


The oven has an abundance of additional features. With TFT, you can easily programme the oven’s additional 14 functions, set the timer and switch on the child lock. Setting the temperature of the oven is effortless due to ILVE’s precision temperature control.


The oven has 37 litres of cooking space, with an internal light to illuminate the inside of the oven. The oven doors are soft-closing, full glass and quadruple-glazed.

The 645SNZT4 isn’t just for the perfect pizza. Provided with the oven is an electronic cooking probe, meaning you can cook your meat at the perfect temperature too! With ILVE’s new wet/dry setting you can reduce the amount of moisture within the oven by releasing water through the steam vent.
