Fondue heater

A&J Stöckli

Established 1874

Founded in 1874 by Alfred Stöckli as a copper workshop in Uznach, Stöckli is the manufacturer of the most iconic fondue heater. Early products include paraffin lamps, burners, ash trays and metal pan lids. Stöckli quickly grew out to become a flourishing company and moved to production to Netstal in order to use hydraulic power.

The cookware, serving utensils and ornaments become known under the name ‘Stöckli copper’. Later, the product range was expanded with air humidifiers, fondue burners and Raclette ovens. In 1956, the company purchases an injection die moulding machine to produce its first plastic products, such as waste shovels, wash basins, containers and watering cans.
