ELGIN -- The Middleby Corp. said it has acquired Brava Home Inc., a California-based company known for its advanced residential cooking technology paired with a chef-powered service.
Terms of the acquisition were not announced.
Brava offers proprietary cooking-by-light technology which provides users a fast, flexible, space saving and eco-friendly appliance for their kitchen counter. The patented light technology cooks food up to four times faster, requires no preheat and allows the preparation of multiple products in the same oven cavity, providing significant time savings and convenience.
"As Middleby continues to focus on the most progressive technologies, we are addressing a growing market of consumers who are versed in technology and a digital experience. We believe Brava will bring many opportunities to both our residential and commercial businesses, as we extend the technology and capabilities to other Middleby brands," said Middleby CEO Tim FitzGerald.
