About Chantal

Chantal's focus has always been on creating and providing the best products for Healthy Cooking!  Our products feature the healthiest nontoxic materials and cooking surfaces available today.  We pledge to continually look for new innovations and manufacturing techniques which will be ideal for health conscious chefs.

Founded in October 1971, Chantal Corporation is proud to be approaching 50 years of strength, determination and success. 

CEO and founder, German-born Heida Thurlow, relocated to the United States in 1970 and soon began her entrepreneurial journey. Trained as an engineer, Ms. Thurlow has the distinction of being the first woman in the U.S. to launch and run a cookware company. 

She has received numerous design and utility patents for teakettle and cookware design and innovation. Chantal was the first to bring dramatic color, tempered glass lids and stay-cool handles to the kitchenware marketplace and continues to dedicate itself to the creation of innovative products that bring elegance to the home. 

Chantal products feature the healthiest cooking surfaces available today and we pledge to continually look for new innovations and manufacturing techniques which will be ideal for health conscious chefs.

When we are not innovating new and exciting products, we are always searching for ways to give back to the community.  We have recently held food drives and toy drives to collect thousands of dollars’ worth of donations for those in need.  Chantal also actively supports the Houston based Women’s Home that provides residential treatment and transitional guidance for women in need and their families.
