Thermador was founded in 1916, producing small electrical products. After the end of World War II, the company moved on to manufacture household appliances. In 1955, the company invented the first built-in wall oven for the home.
Today, Thermador stands as a brand name for kitchen appliances produced by Bosch, specializing in cook ranges, dishwashers, and refrigerators. Most models of Thermador refrigerators use Whirlpool or KitchenAid water filters for their water and ice dispensers.
