Lagostina was a high-quality Italian housewares manufacturer based in the Northern Italian region of Piemonte. In 2004 the company was sold to France’s Groupe SEB – a housewares conglomerate that also owns the brands T-Fal, IMUSA, WearEver and All-Clad. Lagostina is no longer a company, but a brand that still produces, sells and markets first-generation venting pressure cookers.
