Italian appliance maker Glem Gas has announced the American debut of its Forza pro-style appliances, a new brand specifically made for the North American market. The appliances are manufactured in the Emilia-Romagna region of Modena, Italy, and designed with an emphasis on aesthetics and performance.

The initial Forza lineup includes 30- and 36-inch pro-style gas ranges; high-performance ventilation hoods, available in 11-, 18- and 24-inch heights; and a 24-inch dishwasher. Each is available in a stainless steel finish, and the ranges offer six additional color options: blue, red, orange, yellow, white, and black.

“We understand that the American market is competitive, which is why we’re excited to be offering something truly unique,” says Marco Guerzoni, Forza’s director of marketing and product development. “While our designs are unmistakably bold – with sports car-inspired colors and clean, swept lines – these products are more than aesthetic masterpieces. They also bring proven power and performance that make them the centerpiece of any luxury kitchen.”

The Forza gas ranges feature six full brass burners with up to 20,000 BTU output, six cubic feet of oven capacity, and convection cooking with dual fans for heat distribution. The ventilation hoods are available as under-cabinet or wall hoods, with 2 x 600 CFM of suction power. The dishwasher comes with 16 settings and six washing programs, including an extra power program for heavy loads.

“Original in every aspect, Forza cooking appliances look and perform like nothing you’ve ever seen before,” says Guerzoni. “Forza products are radically designed with profound tradition and modern sophistication, and are dedicated to the proposition that dramatically sculpted lines, inspired colors and superb performance will enhance every culinary experience.”
