5 reasons why this flex induction cooktop should be in every kitchen

Throughout history, cooking has been not only a practical necessity for human survival but also a cultural and social activity that reflects the values and traditions of different societies. The evolution of cooking techniques and the exchange of culinary knowledge have played a crucial role in shaping human civilisation.

From professional chefs to avid home cooks, they all seek appliances that provide maximum creative space, precise and intuitive controls, and intelligent flexibility which best suit their kitchen vision. One such appliance is Gaggenau’s 400 Series Flex Induction Cooktop with integrated ventilation system. Setting a new standard for luxury kitchen appliances, here are five unmistakable features that make it a culinary masterpiece in any kitchen.

Flex induction technology for versatile cooking

The 400 Series Flex Induction Cooktop introduces expandable cooking zones, leveraging innovative flex induction technology. This allows the cooking areas to adapt to the size of pots, pans, Teppan Yaki, or griddle pans up to 30 centimetres in width. The booster function temporarily elevates the power for intense searing, while a keep warm function and frying sensor ensure precise and even heat distribution, minimising the risk of burning.

Integrated ventilation for odour-free mastery

At the heart of this culinary masterpiece lies an integrated ventilation system that effortlessly removes cooking odours, allowing chefs to focus on their culinary creations. Nestled between two cooking areas, the powerful downdraft ensures odour-free cooking, freeing the chef from the distraction of monitoring air quality. The appliance’s automatic venting, available in air recirculation or air extraction mode, adapts its power level based on atmospheric vapour, providing an energy-efficient and quiet operation.

Seamless design integration

Designed for seamless integration into modern kitchens, the frameless and flush-fitting 90-centimetre cooktop can be installed flush with the countertop surface. The sleek black glass, punctuated by solid stainless steel or distinctive black steel control knobs with clear illumination, enhances the visual appeal of any contemporary kitchen. The front-mounted knobs are both precise and intuitive, providing direct control and eliminating the possibility of accidental usage.

Smart connectivity with Home Connect

Keeping pace with the digital home evolution, the 400 Series Flex Induction Cooktop is equipped with Home Connect, allowing remote monitoring of cooking zones and ventilation. This connectivity ensures that the appliance remains central to the modern kitchen, providing chefs with unprecedented freedom and control.

Designed with expansion in mind

The 400 Series Flex Induction Cooktop empowers professional and home chefs to cook with complete ease. A wonderful addition to any contemporary kitchen, Gaggenau also ensures that the appliance works in perfect combination with the Vario cooktops from the same series, creating the ability to design a completely bespoke cooking space. The appliance can be fitted in combination with frameless induction cooktops, or those which feature a frame, including the electric grill, Teppan Yaki, gas cooktop, gas wok or induction.
