It all started in 1954...
Tefal owes its origins to a Frenchman, Marc Grégoire, and his wife, Colette. M. Grégoire, In 1954, Monsieur Grégoire a keen fisherman, wanted to make his rod reel in more smoothly and experimented to see if a non-stick coating might provide the answer. It did!
But it was his wife who made the real breakthrough by gently suggesting that coating their cooking pans would be a more worthwhile application, making them easier to cook with and simpler to clean.
Four years later Tefal was France's No.1 cookware manufacturer.
