brava started at the dinner table, where many good conversations begin. Dan wished his mom could enjoy their family holiday dinner without jumping to the kitchen every five minutes to check on the meal. Together, they realized if the oven and stovetop could help guide her cooking and deliver consistently great results, she would be less stressed and family time would be more enjoyable for everyone.
But it was not enough for this new cooking device to be smart, it had to be easy to use, faster and produce better results than any cooking technology on the market.
Enter Thomas to lead the extensive scientific research into heating technologies and cutting-edge control systems. After much trial and error, and time in his garage, Pure Light Cooking™ was born.
With an early prototype in hand, the journey began in earnest to create a revolutionary product and company. John joined the team to help bring on market-leading investors, partners and colleagues, to drive the business and Brava’s direct-to-consumer strategy. brava began shipping to brava faithful customers in November 2018, and in November 2019 Brava was acquired by the Middleby Corporation (NASDAQ: MIDD), a leading cooking appliance company, to speed up the delivery of Pure Light Cooking™ to the world.
