All Visual Cooking ovens are made at our production facilities in Randers,
Denmark. Based on the proud traditions of Danish craftsmanship, we manu-
facture the great majority of the components ourselves. Before leaving our
production facilities, each individual oven is tested thoroughly. This assures
