Gaggenau Vario 400 series of cooktops and modules
Gaggenau Modular Cooking Products
Create your cooktop at Universal Appliance and Kitchen Center
Sometimes referred to as uber-luxury, Gaggenau defines the luxury segment of the appliance industry. Why settle for an ordinary cooktop when you can add a custom array of cooking modules to suit your specific needs and desires? The Vario 400 series not only offers the standard gas and radiant electric or induction cooking surfaces that you'd expect, but also some specialty items such as the Vario grill, Teppan Yaki, induction wok module, steamer, and deep fryer. Thanks to precision crafting of the 1/8-inch thick stainless steel, the appliances can both be surface-mounted with a visible edge or flush-mounted.
See what Gaggenau has to offer:
Accurate, fast cooking with low energy consumption. The VI 491 induction cooktop is equipped with five cooking zones, including a three-ring zone with a diameter of 12.6 inches (32 cm) for maximum flexibility when using different sizes of pots and pans. Each cooking zone can be individually enhanced with the booster function, which temporarily increases the power by up to 50 percent, making it ideal for intensive searing or super-fast heating.
Roasting and cooking according to Japanese tradition directly on a smooth metal griddle provides greater accuracy than with a pan or grill. The two cooking zones of the VP 414 are each powered by 1,500 watts, allowing food to be prepared or kept warm on all or half of the surface. Temperatures up to 240°C (464°F) can be controlled precisely. In addition, optimal heat distribution ensures gentle and low-fat cooking of vegetables, meat and fish.
The VR 414 electric grill lets you grill food in the kitchen on a large, open griddle. Lava stones ensure consistently intense heat for perfectly grilled food, while two independently adjustable grilling zones allow simultaneous grilling, frying and warming. The two-piece cast-iron griddle and the cast-iron roaster, which can be used additionally for roasting on a smooth surface, are ideal complements to the grill.
Unique to Gaggenau is a selection of downdraft ventilation options for your custom cooking modules.
The AT 400 combines ventilation, lighting and an additional workspace in one. The first highly effective air recirculation solution. Just the thing for kitchens without an outside air vent. A good solution also for kitchen islands in living areas.
Regardless of whether it is installed with a visible edge or flush-mounted next to the Vario cooking appliances, the VL 414 downdraft ventilation draws steam downwards directly from where it arises. Up to four ventilation elements can be combined with a fan unit, which operates quietly, precisely and efficiently and is controlled conveniently via a single AA490 control knob.
