Gaggenau, the luxury brand for professional-grade home appliances launches the new flex induction cooktop with integrated ventilation system 400 series.
The 90cm appliance offers unprecedented precise, fast and flexible cooking with low energy consumption paired with an integrated ventilation. By efficiently removing the distraction of having to monitor the air quality, the private chef is free to focus on creating cuisine and entertaining their guests. Frameless and flush fitting, the expansive sheet of black glass blends seamlessly into the modern kitchen with a distinct design difference: control knobs in black. Gaggenau pioneered ventilation for the private kitchen in Europe in 1976. Since then it has continued to innovate appliances which utilise discreet ventilation systems to quietly clear the air.
The flex induction cooktop’s integrated ventilation system can be set to automatically vent the air whenever in use. Available in air recirculation or air extraction mode, it can determine its own power level based on the vapour detected in the atmosphere and can continue when no longer being used. Energy efficient, powerful motors work in tandem with airflow ducting to ensure minimal volume of both noise and space, but maximum effectiveness: odours are removed during air recirculation thanks to the activated charcoal filters. All of which enables the private chef to concentrate on creating cuisine, not clearing the air.
Exceptional cuisine requires precision cooking and perfect frying results. The flex induction cooktop achieves both. The cooktop offers expandable cooking zones that utilise the ingenious flex induction technology, allowing the private chef to cook like a professional. Cooking areas can be increased to accommodate large pots and pans up to 30cm in width. All this flexibility does not dilute the strength. The booster function of these cooktops will temporarily raise the power from 3300 W to 3700 W for truly searing heat. There is a keep-warm function, and a frying sensor that maintains an even heat, reducing the chance of burning.
For seamless integration into the countertop, the 90cm cooktop is frameless and can be installed flush to the surface. The black glass houses dark air intake vents, unobtrusive even while in operation. Its superior and professional front-mounted control knobs are also offered in black. The knobs are both precise and intuitive; removing the possibility of accidental usage, ensuring that the private chef always remains in direct control of the appliance.
The flex induction cooktop with integrated ventilation system is equipped with Home Connect, in order for the private chef to have more freedom, through controlling their appliance online. The integration of Home Connect ensures that the appliance always remains at the heart of the increasingly digital home.
Sven Baacke, Head of Design, Global Brand Gaggenau, says: “The flex induction cooktop with integrated ventilation system 400 series allows the chef at home to cook like a professional would, without having the added worry of clearing the air at the same time. Gaggenau users appreciate exceptional design, therefore the seamless cooktop blends into any modern kitchen, with its distinctive black control knobs making a striking statement.”
