Kitchen Appliances

With more than 40 years of experience and a significant number of important innovations, Kronen is one of the world's leading manufacturers in professional food preparation

Our product portfolio ranges from system catering, juice and salad shops, bakeries and pastry shops to large-scale consumers in large kitchens, supermarkets and canteens.



In the 1990s, the concept "Systems for Convenience" was developed together with one of the largest German food retailers. Since then, Kronen has been offering not only high-quality machines for food preparation but also integrated solutions for the in-house preparation of fruit, vegetable and juice convenience for the food retailer directly in the market. Fresh and visible for the customers.
