We believe that when we empower our home cooks, we also empower those who eat their tasty meals–our loved ones at home.
It’s why we create products that help cooks make food with more confidence and joy. Our mission was born with our co-founder, Agustin Lau. As a grandson of restaurant owners, he was always a passionate cook and well versed in the ways of the kitchen. Inherently curious, he wondered why most home cooks were stuck with low-quality kitchen tools when it didn’t have to be that way. Growing up around his family-owned restaurant, he knew firsthand the difference professional kitchen knives and other tools could make, so he set out to close that gap and the Mëren journey began.
Agustin teamed up with his brother, Esteban Lau, an engineer and skillful cook. After years of research and tinkering, they crafted the first Mëren product: a professional knife made for the home cook. It’s made with premium Japanese AUS-10 steel and expertly designed to make every cut feel butter-smooth. The reaction from the chefs community has been incredible and, thanks to their support, we've been featured in the press, including Fox, USA Today and Digital Journal.
We’re just getting started and the journey to raising the standard across home kitchens is a long one. Our hope is that through our products, we can empower home cooks and those they love.
We believe that you should know how our products are made, so that you can make the right choice for yourself. That’s why we share everything about the materials we use, our supply chain and even hiccups that may arise.
