330 years of Gaggenau

The Gaggenau name is renowned in the design world as a global luxury brand, sitting in the upper echelon of designer home and kitchen appliances – and is celebrating over 330 years of designer success.

With a brand ethos focused on culinary culture and bringing soul into the kitchen, Gaggenau designs products that enrich the culture and beauty of food. With a rich history going back over 330 years, the Gaggenau brand is not an invention, it’s the name of its home small town in the Black Forest of Germany – this is a brand that honours the past while always looking forward.

The kitchen is a space of constant evolution in the home. From cooking space, to social hub of experience, to home of inspiration, Gaggenau is there. Gaggenau appliances offer exceptional design and uncompromising performance, with features that make a real difference because they add value. Driven and inspired by standards in professional kitchens when developing products, you can be assured that any project finished with Gaggenau appliances will be a world leader when it comes to quality, design and innovation.

VarioCooling and Wine fridge

The new and modular Vario cooling 400 series of refrigerators, freezers, fridge-freezers and wine climate cabinets are the next evolution of the kitchen. Suitable to any contemporary interior style, the progressive design of this range commands visual admiration, whilst maintaining integral professional capabilities.

Inspired by sweeping and grand architectural statements, the Vario cooling 400 series has been designed for those with an eye on the aesthetically bold or advanced. Combining design modularity with smooth, seamless integration, these sculpted appliances redefine the landscape of the functional kitchen.

When combined, this series forms an imposing cooling wall that integrates into the overall kitchen structure. An expanse of handleless doors with individual fronts and stainless steel or glass doors for wine climate cabinets can serve as a statement in any kitchen.

With inspiration taken from the oak barrels used to age wine, the Vario 400 wine climate cabinets see up to three independently controlled climate zones paired with telescopic rails, allowing the oak and dark anthracite aluminium bottle trays to fully extend for gentle handling after being perfectly temperate for ideal appreciation.

400 series ovens

The bold lines of solid stainless steel and glass of the 400 series ovens stand proud of their background; unmistakably Gaggenau. Again seamlessly free of any handles, doors are opened by a simple touch of the display. This is an oven that confidently sets the tone of the kitchen.


The cooktops too, feature the same perfection in modern design and function. The CX482 full surface induction cooktop is 80cm of unlimited creative space for the home chef. The enormous space serves as a blank canvas upon which the inspired cook is given free reign to create a culinary masterpiece. The TFT touch display control panel will be familiar to anyone with a smartphone as it offers scrolling power level regulation alongside the usual timing information and available cooking functions.
