SCHOTT CERAN® – a success story.
Sometimes we must reach for the stars to achieve something here on Earth. At the beginning of the 1960s, SCHOTT had developed glass-ceramic as a mirror substrate for use in space telescopes. This material was incredibly heat resistant and showed almost no thermal expansion – ideal prerequisites for preventing blurring during observation of the stars, but also the perfect foundation for continuing with our research. Why not use this unique material to manufacture cooktop panels? That’s exactly what we did.

SCHOTT introduced the first black glass-ceramic cooktop panels under the SCHOTT CERAN® brand in 1971 and thus started a revolution in the kitchen. SCHOTT CERAN® quickly became a world bestseller that has since been sold over 120 million times and had a major impact on our history. This success spurs us on to remain true to our tradition and constantly improve our technology based on our many years of experience with complete freedom of thought, but no compromises whatsoever when it comes to quality.
