A taste of Brazilian hospitality from Tramontina


Tradition and passion are at the fore for Tramontina and, for them, it’s not just about the product but also the pleasure the product can bring. They have evolved an ethos of bringing Brazilian hospitality to the global market where people get together to enjoy good times and create lasting memories.


Tramontina’s Churrasco collection is specifically designed to bring people together to enjoy the best of times with an outstanding collection of high-quality kit for fun, authentic Brazilian style barbequing, including an outstanding collection of wooden gift/presentation boxed sets.


From essential accessories such as skewers, no end of utensils and wooden chopping/serving boards to exquisite 16- piece carving sets and steak knife & fork sets in an array of styles - everything you need for the ultimate in sociable outdoor cooking and dining.


Outstanding features prevail throughout - sculpted ergonomic handles, super-sharp serrated stainless-steel blades and distinctive stainless-steel rivets which guarantee safety and security as well as a distinctive appearance, epitomising the stylish good looks and high quality of the brand.


High quality polywood handles (real wood), from FSC certified forests, are dishwasher safe, impact and high temperature resistant and, uniquely, come with a 5-year warranty.


Although Churrasco is at the fore, the Tramontina portfolio has recently been bolstered with the addition of cookware, utensils, knife blocks and more, offering a more diverse choice for everyone to enjoy.
