Even professional chefs and gourmets have
grown to treasure our state-of-the-art induc-
tion technology, not forgetting the classic
gas cooktop. Induction appliances react just
as fast as gas appliances, while generating
much less ambient heat. That’s why nowadays
both technologies can be found side-by-side
in many professional kitchens. The issue of
energy supply is often the crucial factor in
deciding which option to go for. The electricity
needed for glass ceramic cooktops or induc-
tion appliances is available just about every-
where, whereas a gas connection cannot
be taken for granted. But help is at hand
because all Gaggenau gas cooktops can also
be operated with bottled gas! This is a great
way to install a gas cooktop next to the large
glass ceramic cooktop. Check out this chapter
to read up on the countless advantages of
Vario cooktops 400 and 200 series.
The Vario series feature perfectly-specialised
appliances for every conceivable cooking chal-
lenge: classic glass ceramic, gas and induction
cooktops and special appliances for grilling,
deep frying and steaming, as well as suitable
ventilation elements. What’s more, everything
can be combined.
Appliances from the professional 400 series
are 38 cm wide and are made of brushed stain-
less steel. An illuminated orange ring surrounds
the knobs on the front. Appliances from the
200 series are 28 cm wide and are made of
shot-blasted stainless steel. Here the control
knobs are integrated into the aluminium panel,
which is also shot-blasted.
