Gaggenau – Vario Cooktops 400 series


March 22nd, 2011

What’s more, everything can be combined.  Appliances from the professional 400 series are 38cm wide and are made of brushed stainless steel.  An illuminated orange ring surrounds the knobs on the front. 

Included in the 400 series are:

Steamer VK411- for steaming, keeping warm, defrosting and gentle heating at a precisely-controlled temperature.  Two cooking inserts can be used for simultaneously steaming different food while ensuring that the taste of one is not transferred to the other.  Electronic steam control saves time and energy as only the amount of steam needed is actually generated.  The glass cover ensures that you can always keep an eye on the action.


Teppan Yaki VP421 – for cooking, frying or keeping warm on the whole metal surface or just half of it.  Two cooking zones each with an output of 1150 watts.


Electric Grill VR421 – for grilling without the grease; directly on the cast grill grids.  Two grilling zones, independently controlled for simultaneous grilling and keeping warm.


Induction Cooktop VI411 – when combined with the wok ring and the wok pan, it’s ideal for preparing Asian wok cuisine.  Features automatic pot detection.
