From Switzerland, he has changed cooking worldwide. His drive was to bring joy to the kitchen through technical innovation and outstanding design. We have been living Karl’s ideals for over 70 years.

Who doesn't remember the legendary advertising campaign from the 60s: Zick Zick Zyliss! With the first lightning chopper, Karl Zysset made all cutting work in the kitchen faster, more convenient and safer.
It is still indispensable in many households in Switzerland: the drum grater is a real classic with unique quality, durability and versatility. It is indispensable for grating rösti, the national dish of German-speaking Switzerland, and for enriching Bircher muesli.
Anyone who has ever cut perfect French fries with a knife will appreciate it very much: the French fries cutter turned the tedious work into a quick and easy cooking pleasure.
