Flexible Design for the Adaptable Kitchen

When it comes to cooking and dining, it’s good alone, but great together, and Gaggenau knows this.

Traditionally kitchen design has always been somewhat stifling. There are only so many ways to organize the elements essential to most kitchens right? Not anymore – not with the Gaggenau’s Vario cooktop 200 series. Designed specifically with the flexibility-loving designer and architect in mind, the range offers a variety of options to best craft the ultimate kitchen for a design loving home chef.

Extending far beyond the capacity of most kitchens, the Vario 200 series allows designers to mix and match in the planning process, so as to create a personalised fit out in the design process.

Ranging in scale from 28 cm to 60 cm, The Vario 200 series is a cohesive collection of cooktops that marries state-of-the-art performance with intelligent design. The classic gas and induction cooktops sit comfortably alongside the more specialized options, such as the electric grill, steamer, Teppan Yaki and deep fryer.

Gaggenau Vario cooktops combine innovation in home cooking and avant-garde design and have been designed to sit alone flush, or ideally combined to form a modular and seamless kitchen working space. The result is a comprehensive suite of appliances that have the flexibility to suite any number of contemporary designer kitchens.

The two Vario cooktops series provide the design loving chef with a variety of unique and specialized appliances. Made from solid stainless steel, each range presents a connected seamless and modular cooktop system.

The gas two-ring cooktop and the wok burner are paired with three brass flame rings, and cater for a variety of tastes, providing ample room for all guises of home cooking. The steamer offers assorted methods of preparation from fresh steam cooking, to blanching, juice extraction and regeneration, as well as creating stocks and reducing wine. A unique addition, the Teppan Yaki cooker gives the thrill of speed frying at 240C, or repurposed to provide a gentle warming plate.

This designer ready suite of appliances offers as many cooking options for the home chef, as it does choices for the kitchen designing architect or team. After all, what’s cooking without choice?
