The Brands:

Imperia: Established in Italy in 1932, Imperia has a rich history of designing and manufacturing the highest-quality pasta makers in the world. Featuring a food-grade stainless steel construction, Imperia’s SP150 pasta maker stands as one of the most prolific and popular pasta makers on the market. Still using a traditional roller design, Imperia’s SP150, Pasta Facile Motor and all compatible pasta cutting attachments are still 100% Italian-made.

Marcato: With roots dating back to the 1930’s foundation of their manufacturing facility in Campordarsego, Marcato, much like Imperia, is still held as the ultimate-standard for pasta makers. While Imperia prefers a traditional roller system, Marcato has upgraded their rolling system alongside contemporary technological advancements, now preferring a food-grade light aluminum alloy Wellness roller system.

Giannini: Beggining in 1968, the Giannina stainless steel stovetop espresso maker has become the product most widely circulated and known product of the Giannini company, and for good reason - winner of the prestigious Red Dot Design Award, the Giannina uses an innovative new design to lock the bottom and top pieces of the espresso maker together together. Unlike the traditional stove top espresso maker design which has the two pieces screw together, the Giannina uses a sturdy handle-locking system to hold the two pieces firmly (and safely) together when in use.

Ilsa: An acronym for Industria Laminazione Stampaggio Allumino (factory for rolling and pressing aluminum), Ilsa’s history dates back to 1946, with the creation of their Napoletana Italian espresso maker. By 1956, Ilsa had expanded it’s manufacturing line to include stainless steel production, allowing them to expand to offer the Napoletana and moka-style espresso makers in stainless steel as well.

Eppicotispai: A great source of pride for the Eppicotispai brand is that all of their products are 100% made in Italy, with all manufacturing components produced in Italy by Italian-owned companies.
