History.
6
Gaggenau was founded in 1683 and has been involved
in the manufacture of metal consumer durables from the
outset. Before long, the company came to specialise in
enamel products, and Gaggenau’s recipe for its sturdy
oven enamel became the basis for the success of its charcoal and gas ovens, which it continued to manufacture
until well into the 20th century. In 1961, Gaggenau was
taken over by the visionary entrepreneur Georg von
Blanquet, under whose leadership it became a premium
international brand. Von Blanquet was excited by the
idea of custom-made fitted kitchens, something which
was revolutionary for that time. A passionate cook in his
spare time, von Blanquet accepted no compromises in
his quest to create professional appliances incorporating a plain and functional design – a creed to which
Gaggenau has remained faithful to this day.
A variety of glass composites are used as raw materials
for the typical blue enamel of our ovens.
7
Craftsmanship.
Gaggenau appliances are crafted by hand in a process
involving many stages and assembled piece by piece in
our workshops. Manufacturing our ovens involves countless steps which can only be carried out manually, such
as the assembly of fronts and cable looms. Even the
control modules on our 200 series ovens can only be
polished manually, for instance. Our philosophy demands loving attention to all details. This enables us to
keep hold of the things which are valuable and dear to
us.
Two control knobs from the 200 series ovens. The control
module is polished by hand and the knobs are attached
manually.

Quality.
Only the toughest, best-quality materials are suitable
for consistent use in a kitchen over a period of many
years. The grinding unit of our fully automatic espresso
machine is a good example – it operates almost without
wear, and its innovative design makes it unusually quiet.
These details, used in the selection of materials and
processes, may not be visible, but make a recognisable
difference to the taste. That’s because the grinding
unit’s three different grinding zones guarantee an ideal
grain size distribution and thus enable the aroma to
develop perfectly.

machine’s grinding unit. It is made of high-quality
ceramic material and is extremely long-lived.

Innovations.
12
No other company has revolutionised common kitchen
practices as much as Gaggenau: built-in ovens, glass
ceramic cooktops, pyrolytic self-cleaning, the Combisteam oven for the home and oven doors that can be
opened from the side. The list of our achievements is
remarkable. But that certainly doesn’t mean we’re resting on our laurels. More than 30 staff in research and
development are already working on further ideas.
A coil condenser from the Vario cooling series. It features a compact design and reduces the temperature of
the substances to be cooled in an extremely effective
manner. As a result, the net volume and the energy
efficiency can both be increased.
13
Design.
On the international stage, Gaggenau is a regular recipient of design prizes. After all, engineers and designers
work hand-in-hand at Gaggenau. They create objects
that set the benchmarks with regard to functional and
aesthetic criteria. One successful example of this is
provided by the solid aluminium door racks of our Vario
cooling 400 series. They are purposefully recut in order
to create uniquely precise contours. As a result, simplicity meets state-of-the-art design. Par for the course
at Gaggenau.

reworked. This enhancement makes the material a
pleasure to see and touch.

Baking.
Very large ovens have traditionally been used in
gastronomy. Besides roasting, baking and grilling,
they are also used for preparation or to keep individual meals warm while others are still cooking. It
is this wide range of requirements that provides the
inspiration for our domestic kitchens. This combination of oven and Combi-steam oven enables all
conceivable culinary challenges to be mastered to
perfection. The best results are obtained when the
appliances are built in at eye level so that the cook
is provided with an ideal view. The high-visibility
glass frontages are made from high-quality transparent glass capable of resisting temperatures
of up to 485°C, such as those that occur during
pyrolysis, the automatic self-cleaning. At the press
of a button, the current temperature inside the oven
appears on a temperature gauge. Other handy
features, the likes of which will delight even
professional chefs, are shown on the pages that
follow.

20
200 series ovens.
The distinct look of the appliances of the 200 series
ovens is defined by the compact LCD control module
with its simple use of menus, digital clock and timer.
The multiple-glazed doors can be opened at full height
from the side, either to the left or to the right depending on how you choose to install them. Frontages are
made from glass and backed with stainless steel or
aluminium. The panorama view and halogen lighting
ensure the cook is provided with optimum visibility of
the interior.
The series uncompromisingly brings ultra-modern professional technology into private kitchens. Whether it’s
a combination of an oven, a Combi-steam oven and a
warming drawer one above the other or a side-by-side
combination of 45-centimetre-high appliances such as
a fully automatic espresso machine and a Combi-steam
or steam oven – a multitude of perfect-looking combinations is possible.
21
Combi-steam oven BS 281.

24
25
Pull-out system with roaster.
Baking trays, wire racks, pans and even the rotisserie
spit are fully extendable thanks to this effortless new
system. If you want to baste a roast, for example, one
simple move is enough. The pull-out system can be
used on every level and its cast iron frame can easily be
cleaned with the oven’s pyrolytic function. The Gaggenau
Gastronorm roaster (GN 2 / 3) is also directly incorporated
into the system. It is not only ideal for all ovens with a
roasting function, but also for Combi-steam and steam
ovens and induction cooktops. The roaster’s lid also
serves as a casserole dish or as a piece of cookware.
26
27
Core temperature probe.
The core temperature probe lets you cook meat, fish and
pastries or pies to perfection. Simply insert the tip
of the probe into whatever it is you are cooking and it
will measure the temperature in the centre, which will
then appear on the function display. As soon as the set
value for the inside temperature is reached, the heating
element switches itself off automatically. A signal will
then sound immediately and at intervals to inform you
that the core temperature has been reached. It is a
convenient device that can be used both for Gaggenau
ovens and for Gaggenau Combi-steam ovens.
28

30
Combi-steam oven BS 250.
The use of pressureless steam is one of the most effective
cooking methods there is. In the Combi-steam oven
BS 250, this can be combined with hot air, meaning that
these ovens can do everything: steaming, baking,
simmering, braising, regenerating, extracting juice.
ƒƒFrontage: Stainless steel-backed full glass door (also available with aluminium backing).
ƒƒDimensions: 60 cm wide; net volume of 43 litres.

ƒƒGastronorm roaster (GN 2 / 3): Special accessory for searing
and braising with the roasting function. See pages 26/27 for
more details.
31
Combi-steam oven BS 274.
Unlike the BS 250, the BS 274 has a fixed inlet and
outlet water connection. Five humidity levels can be
combined with temperatures of up to 230°C, meaning
that these ovens can do everything: steaming, baking,
simmering, braising, regenerating, extracting juice.
ƒƒFrontage: Aluminium-backed full glass door.
ƒƒDimensions: 60 cm wide; net volume of 44 litres (also available in a width of 76 cm).
ƒƒCooking methods: Hot air from 30°C to 230°C, electronically controllable, can be combined with steam at 0 %, 30 %,

Combi-steam oven.
The use of pressureless steam is one of the healthiest
cooking methods and the best way to retain vitamins,
minerals, consistency and colour of food. Meat is tender
and succulent, while seafood is never too dry and vegetables are turned into a delicacy. Everyday meals that
easily stick to the surface or disintegrate become easier
to make than ever. Steam is ideal for blanching spinach,
skinning tomatoes or gently reheating meals which have
already been cooked. The use of hot air in cooking is
ideal for crispy roasts and gratins – simply switch off
the steam shortly before the end of the cooking time to
allow everything to brown at a high temperature. The
result: the outside will be crispy and the inside succulent – just like it should be.
35
Oven BO 271.
The BO 271 has the widest range of features of the
60 cm-wide ovens in the 200 series.
ƒƒFrontage: Aluminium-backed full glass door.
ƒƒDimensions: 60 cm wide; net volume of 76 litres.
ƒƒ17 heating methods: Electronic temperature control from

and braising with the roasting function. See pages 26/27 for
more details.
36
37
Heated baking stone.
Commercial brick ovens are traditionally fired from
below, with the heat transmitted through the stone base.
The same principle is used here. A separate heating
element heats the compact ceramic stone from below
to temperatures of up to 300 °C. There is no heating
from above with this oven, so that your pastries will taste
Danish, pizzas Italian and bread like it’s from the local
baker’s. The baking stone and heating element are
available as special accessories.
38
39
Warming drawer.
Gourmets regard Gaggenau warming drawers as a
secret compartment which can do much more than
merely heat plates. The interior is made from hygienic
stainless steel and glass, and it’s food-safe. At temperatures between 40 °C and 80 °C, they can be used for
browning roasts, getting pastries to rise or keeping
soups warm, and are also ideal for gentle defrosting.
Warming drawers are available in two different sizes and
can be combined with the oven, Combi-steam oven, or
the fully automatic espresso machine, as required. The
WS 282 model shown here is in the 200 series design
and is ideal for combination with an oven as shown on
pages 22/23. The warming drawer holds up to twelve
dinner plates including soup bowls.

Professional oven EB 388.
Top chefs love this Gaggenau classic. Though you
wouldn’t know it from looking at it, the EB 388 is our
oldest model. The design has been so timeless for the
past 20 years that it still sets standards. And now as
then, it’s manufactured almost entirely by hand – a real
professional appliance.
ƒƒDimensions: 90 cm wide; net volume of 78 litres; space for
three to four joints, large-sized game or a small lamb.
ƒƒEleven heating methods: Electronic temperature control from
50°C to 300°C. A special feature of the EB 388 is that top

Coffee.
Of all the food and beverages of the modern age,
coffee has become the epitome of pleasure and
savoir vivre. Its bitter-sweet taste and exquisite
aroma have become a mainstay of our culture. It is
consumed in a dazzling array of varieties and at all
times of the day – and night. Meeting every individual wish requires more than just an outstanding
coffee machine – it also calls for the instinctive
touch and years of experience of a professional
barista. Both of these qualities are united in our
new fully automatic espresso machine CM 250.
Without needing any sort of warm-up phase, it is
ready to produce all imaginable coffee specialities
– espresso, latte macchiato, cappuccino and milk
coffee – within a few seconds. Special requests
are no problem either. The CM 250 can even remember your favourites – just as you’d expect from
your own personal barista.

Cooking.
Even professional chefs and gourmets have grown
to treasure our state-of-the-art induction technology,
not forgetting the classic gas cooktop. Induction
appliances react just as fast as gas appliances, while
generating much less ambient heat. That’s why
nowadays both technologies can be found side-byside in many professional kitchens. The issue of
energy supply is often the crucial factor in deciding
which option to go for. The electricity needed for
glass ceramic cooktops or induction appliances is
available just about everywhere, whereas a gas con­
nection cannot be taken for granted. But help is at
hand, because all Gaggenau gas cooktops can also
be operated with bottled gas! This is a great way to
install a gas cooktop next to a large glass ceramic
cooktop. Use this chapter to read up on the countless advantages of Gaggenau cooktops.
55
Vario cooktops 400 and 200 series.
The Vario series feature perfectly specialised appliances for every conceivable cooking challenge: classic
glass ceramic, gas and induction cooktops and special
appliances for grilling, deep frying and steaming, as
well as suitable ventilation elements. What’s more, everything can be combined.
Appliances from the professional 400 series are 38 cm
wide and made of brushed stainless steel. An illuminated orange ring surrounds the knobs on the front.
Appliances from the 200 series are 28 cm wide and are

steam. But pasta loves bubbling water. With the special
pasta basket accessory, the Vario steamer is transformed into a handy saucepan. This lets you do things
like cooking up to 500 grams of spaghetti in four litres

Induction cooktop CI 491.
The CI 491 induction hob that is extra-wide and suitable
for the largest of cookware, yet minimalistic with it's
simple stainless steel frame. There are 5 cooking
zones, which are controlled by Twist Pad, simply controlled by a removable magnetic knob.
ƒƒWidth: 90 cm.
ƒƒFive cooking zones: Including a 28 cm zone that can be
switched on automatically – just the thing for oversized cookware.
ƒƒFrying sensor function: For healthier and uniquely delicious
frying. Perfect in combination with the stainless steel frying
sensor pan, available as a special accessory.
ƒƒAutomatic pot detection: The heat develops directly at the
bottom of the pot and therefore doesn’t have to be transmitted from the cooktop to the pot.
ƒƒTwist-Pad control: Convenient level control with a removable
magnetic knob.
ƒƒQuick boil timer: The selected cooking setting is raised to
the maximum level for between one and 20 minutes, depending on the individual settings. The cooktop then automatically reverts back to its initial temperature.
ƒƒBooster function: For intensive searing or heating up large
amounts of liquid in a flash. Temporarily increases the power
of any particular cooking zone by about 50 per cent. The
power of the large 28 cm zone can even be increased to
4.4 kW.
ƒƒCooking timer: You can set the cooking zones to be automatically switched off at any moment within the following
90 minutes. The integrated clock also acts as the timer.
Twist-Pad control.
With this system, the handling of a classic knob meets
cutting-edge technology. A type of magnetic stainless
steel puck takes on the role of a control element on a
digital control panel. All cooking zones can be triggered
and controlled with this element. Turn it to the right to
raise the temperature of the selected zone and turn it to
the left to lower it. The magnetic knob is removable and
can be cleaned under the tap.

Full surface induction cooktop CX 480.
The entire surface of this cooktop can be used as one
large cooking area. The cookware is automatically
recognised and heated exactly where it stands. The
operation is controlled intuitively using an extra-large
TFT touch display which shows the positions, sizes and
shapes of the cookware.
ƒƒWidth: 80 cm; frameless to suit flush-fitting.
ƒƒOne cooking area: Up to four different items of cookware can
be placed or moved around on the cooktop and used at the
same time.
ƒƒAutomatic pot detection: The heat is not transferred from the
cooktop to the pot but generated directly in the base of the
pot by induction. This means that particularly small pots are
reliably recognised and even large items of cookware are
completely supplied with the desired heat.
ƒƒTFT touch display: The positions, sizes and shapes of the
cookware are automatically recognised by the full surface
induction cooktop and shown on the extra-large TFT touch
display. Simply touching the display with a finger is sufficient
to select the cooking position or set or change the power
levels. A light upwards movement selects a higher power
level, a light downwards one selects a lower power level.
Activating a timer function for a cooking position, for example, is just as intuitive. Additional information can be called up
via the information key. Setting transfer function: Should an
item of cookware be removed from the cooking position and
replaced on the cooktop in a different position, the previous
cooking settings continue to be used.
ƒƒBooster function: Temporarily increases the power of any
particular cooking position by approximately 50 per cent. For
intensive searing or heating up large amounts of liquid in a
flash.

Ventilation.
Kitchen condensation doesn’t just contain odours
and damp, but also microscopic grease particles.
A truly effective ventilation system proves its mettle
by its ability to capture these fatty particles in
addition to eliminating odours. Nowadays, kitchens
are often integrated into the living area, meaning
that efficient ventilation systems are more important
than ever. We think it’s important to bear every
aspect of this bigger picture in mind. That’s why
Gaggenau offers an appropriate cooktop and
ventilation solution for virtually every setting and
to suit almost every taste. However, aesthetics and
atmosphere must not take a back seat to functionality. That’s why we’re not just interested in purifying
the air, but also in enhancing your surroundings.
79
80
Downdraft ventilation VL 430 and VL 431.
During air extraction operation, steam and odours are

where wall or island ventilation hoods cannot be installed due to the presence of slanted ceilings or windows. The perfect match for the Vario cooktops 400
series.
ƒƒWidth: 9.3 cm; can be integrated between the cooktops to
save space.
ƒƒFlexible installation: The VL 431 control element and, if also
purchased, the VL 430 supplementary element are installed
between the Vario cooktops. The motor is installed either in
the bottom cabinet, in the cellar or on the outside wall.

81
Coanda hood AI 281.
The AI 281 is the latest version of Gaggenau’s exclusive
Coanda ventilation technology. Condensation is efficiently trapped on both sides of the island and sucked
into the ventilation system. This means that the AI 281
produces a level of performance that conventional
­systems only achieve when running at maximum speed.
To find out more about the Coanda effect, see the
next page.
ƒƒDimensions: 120 cm wide, 70 cm deep; aluminium.
ƒƒQuiet and economical: Highly effective, even when on a
low output level. This helps to conserve energy and lower the
noise level.
ƒƒDimmable cooktop lighting: When switched on/off, the light
gently fades in/out. It can also be dimmed manually.
ƒƒFour modes: Three output modes and an intensive mode,
which automatically reverts to the previously selected mode
after a few minutes. Can be operated from both sides.
ƒƒStainless steel grease filter: Easy to remove and dishwashersafe.
ƒƒAir extraction or recirculation: Both are possible.

Coanda effect.
Aerodynamic research led to the discovery of the
Coanda effect. The unique shape of the ventilation hood
leads to the emergence of an additional air current along
its front edge. This air current traps rising condensation
before it has a chance to escape over the edge of the
appliance, and drives it straight into the outlet. This
helps to save energy, while also siphoning off less temperate air. Since it’s an astonishingly quiet system, it
makes working in the kitchen a much more pleasurable
experience. The Coanda effect kicks in on both sides
when using an island hood. One of Gaggenau’s many
innovations.
85
Wall-mounted ventilation hood AW 201.
Its clear-cut design, coupled with the fact that even in
the intensive mode it is comparatively quiet, mean that
the AW 201 is the stuff of legend.
ƒƒDimensions: 90 cm wide, 56 cm deep; made of aluminium.
ƒƒDimmable cooktop lighting: When switched on/off, the light
gently fades in/out. It can also be dimmed manually.
ƒƒFour modes: Three output modes and an intensive mode,
which automatically reverts to the previously selected mode
after a few minutes.
ƒƒRun-on function: At the push of a button, the ventilation ­r uns
on for about ten minutes and then automatically cuts out.
ƒƒInterval ventilation: To assist room ventilation, the AW 201
automatically switches on for five minutes every hour.
ƒƒStainless steel grease filter: Easy to remove and dishwashersafe.
ƒƒAir extraction or recirculation: Both are possible.

Freshness.
Freshness is one of the most important ingredients
when one is preparing dishes of the highest quality.
It’s also one of the most sensitive. Just one second’s
distraction is enough to irreparably overcook it. Baking
and cooking with steam is one of the gentlest preparation methods. That’s because cooking with pressureless steam largely retains the colour, vitamins and
minerals of vegetables. Meat and fish cannot dry out,
and the natural consistency is retained so it tastes just
the way it should. Further information on steam-baking
and cooking can be found on page 135 and in our
glossary.
Flavour.
Both with storage and cooking, it is important to retain
the food’s unique flavour. With mushrooms for instance,
any soil or leaves should be removed using only a fine
mushroom brush before cleaning them with a damp
cloth. Afterwards, they should be cooked or prepared
as quickly as possible. To give them a more intense
taste for later consumption, they can also be dried – for
two hours on a baking tray at around 80°C with recirculation. Dried mushrooms can be kept in airtight containers for months on end, and even the s­ mallest quantity is
enough to enliven soups and stews.
Recipes.
There are two types of cooks – on the one hand there are
the traditional types who prefer classic recipes from their
country’s national cuisine and, on the other, there are the
more experimental ones – the type who, for example,
don’t shy away from creating a delicacy from maize and
caviar, which they call “liquid ravioli”. The Vario series of
cooking appliances offer a wide range of cooktops for
both types of cook. These can be assembled entirely
according to individual requirements and added to at
any time – so you can switch from a classic gas cooktop to Teppan Yaki or an induction wok. This makes
Vario cooktops the ideal option for all kinds of recipes.
Smells and odours.
The smell of baking cakes is generally a welcome aroma,
but other odours arise during cooking which are not so
pleasant. Many tips exist on this subject. In the case of
cabbage for instance, adding a bouquet of parsley or a
walnut to the water while cooking is recommended to
reduce the odour. This holds for all types of cabbage,
including Brussels sprouts, cauliflower or savoy cabbage.
However, confusion prevails when an odour is drifting
through the refrigerator and affecting other foods. Here,
there is no simple cure – only first-rate technology. For
this reason, many of our cooling appliances feature a
ventilation system with an activated charcoal air filter. The
appliances of the Vario cooling 400 series have been
additionally equipped with a stainless steel interior to
prevent the build-up of odours. This appeals to the eyes
as well as the nose.
Vitamins.
Herbs and spices such as parsley, dill, sweet basil and
garlic flowers refine every good meal. They are also
rich in vital vitamins, trace elements and minerals. The
importance of stable storage of these natural materials
is widely known. In order to create ideal conditions for
many different types of food, we’ve incorporated a variety
of climate zones inside our cooling appliances. These
enable temperatures and humidity to be individually
controlled and adjusted to meet the individual needs of
each type of food.
100
Cooling.
Professional chefs know that there are great
differences in how food needs to be stored. Some
foodstuffs require that little bit longer to mature while
others favour a particularly cool environment.
Exclusive drinks are stored at cool temperatures but
need to be brought up to drinking temperature with
care and precision. In order to meet the highest
demands, we’ve continued to develop our range of
cooling appliances unabated.
101
102
Stainless steel interior.
The interiors of all the appliances in our Vario cooling
400 series are panelled in stainless steel – a material
chosen for more than just its visual qualities. Stainless
steel also guarantees 100 per cent hygiene. Giving
off no harmful substances itself, when in contact with
oxygen and moisture it can work to neutralize odours.
This added benefit takes place at the molecular level
and – in the refrigerators at least – remains completely
invisible to the human eye. In the freezers, by contrast,
the stainless steel is covered by an extremely thin
sheen, resembling a frost pattern that provides visible
proof of the appliance’s functionality.
103
Bottle trays made from untreated beech.
At Gaggenau, wine storage is an art form in itself.
­S ophisticated technology makes for almost vibrationfree operation while providing an environment that
­approaches the ideal conditions of a cool wine cellar.
The valuable bottles are stored in exclusive and prestigious style on solid trays that can easily be extended.
These are made from aluminium and untreated beech,
thereby preventing any transfer of taste or aroma. Further­
more, the beech rods are rounded. Apart from looking
good, this also helps to protect the delicate wine labels.
104
105
Stainless steel interior and aluminium door
racks.
There is more to Gaggenau cooling
appliances than precise technology that cools
to the exact degree. The interiors of all
appliances in our Vario cooling 400 series
are lined with stainless steel, a material
chosen for its aesthetic appeal and hygienic
qualities. The shelves are made from
hardened safety glass while the door racks
are made from solid shot-blasted aluminium.
These are made with millimetre precision and
fitted by hand.

The Vario cooling series is a modular system
made from fully integrated built-in
appliances. Refrigerators, freezers and wine
cabinets can be combined to form an
elegant cooling wall. For those who prefer
aluminium doors rather than the individual
furniture panels, these are available as an
optional extra. The interiors of Vario cooling
appliances are stainless steel throughout.
Ample illumination is provided by the side
light elements and ceiling spots.

Dishwashing.
Gaggenau’s dishwashers do the washing-up
in the best possible manner – efficiently, quietly,
economically. And they’re fast too. The Vario
dishwashers take just 57 minutes to wash and dry a
fully loaded machine. One of the things responsible
for this exceptional performance is our innovative
Zeolite technology. The silicate material absorbs
moisture and releases heat in the process –
something that the appliance utilises in several
different ways. Depending on the option chosen,
programme times can be shortened, energy can be
saved or drying performance can
be enhanced. Zeolite completely regenerates itself
after each wash cycle and lasts as long as the
machine itself, which means that this new technology
is also a quantum leap in terms of energy balance.
115

Aluminium door racks
Glossary.
These adjustable racks offer
plenty of storage space and
have a variety of uses. Made
from solid anodised aluminium,
they are particularly hygienic
and easy to clean, while also
preventing odour transfer from
food.
Anti-clump ice system
A
Activated charcoal air filter
In order to keep cooling appli­
ances and wine climate cabi­
nets free of odours, the air
circulates through an antibacte­
rial activated charcoal air filter
that removes and captures
odour particles. In ventilation
systems with recirculation, the
filter removes odours from the
cooking steam before the air is
recirculated into the kitchen.
Actual temperature display
Precise temperature control and
monitoring are especially im­
portant when preparing certain
dishes. The actual temperature
display allows you to check the
temperature in the cooking com­
partment whenever you want.
If, for example, you turn down the
temperature, it enables you to
see when the new desired tem­
perature has been reached in
order to get the maximum bene­
fit from residual heat. Not even
all commercial appliances have
this unique Gaggenau feature,
which is highly appreciated by
discerning home chefs.
126
Adjustable brewing chamber
The brewing chamber can be
adjusted to accommodate a
coffee quantity of between 7 and
14 g, allowing you the freedom
to choose between weak and
strong coffee or however you
like it.
Air cleaning catalyst
A catalyst in the oven’s interior
rids the air of grease particles
and odours. This means that the
kitchen no longer smells of in­
tensive oven odours. The heated
catalyst also delivers an opti­
mal performance at low tem­p e­
ra­tures. A unique Gaggenau
feature.
Air extraction/air circulation
Most Gaggenau ventilation
hoods are available as air ex­
traction or air circulation appli­
ances. In both cases the air,
which contains grease particles
and odours, passes through
a grease filter that protects the
inside of the hood and the
extraction pipes from deposits.
On the air extraction version,
the pre-filtered air is conducted
through the wall into the open
air or into a ventilation shaft. On
the recirculation version, the
odours are absorbed by an addi­
tional active charcoal filter so
that nothing but odour-free air is
conducted back into the kitchen.
For best efficiency the charcoal
filter should be changed twice
a year.
This prevents ice cubes from
clumping together in the Vario
RF 463 freezer. It involves mov­
ing the ice cubes at regular
intervals.
Aqua sensor
This reduces the consumption
of fresh water without com­
promising the cleaning results.
With normal soiling, up to six
litres of water can be saved,
depending on the programme
chosen. The Aqua sensor de­
tects whether the water is clean
enough for the next wash cycle.
If so, the water change proce­
dure is skipped. Regardless of
the water’s cloudiness level,
the system also detects small dirt
particles. To do so, it uses an
infrared sensor that detects fats,
oils and proteins, as well as
an additional green light sen­sor
that recognises substances
such as tea residue or bits of
spinach.
Aquastop
A multi-active and networkindependent system of protec­
tion devices prevents damage
caused by water. With all our
dishwashers, users are no
longer required to manually turn
the water tap on/off (which is
otherwise necessary). Even if
the appliance is switched off,
the discharge pump is immedi­
ately activated if there is a leak
or flooding. All this with a life­
long performance guarantee.
Aroma-Whirl brewing
­technology
This technique ensures an in­
tensive coffee taste. During the
brewing operation, the coffee
powder is whirled at high pres­
sure to ensure all coffee grains
are exposed to water and all
flavours are released.
Automatic cleaning and
descaling programme
The coffee machine has a com­
puter-controlled cleaning and
descaling programme. The most
important steps are shown on
the display screen and the
rest is controlled automatically.
The only requirement is to en­
sure the appropriate cleaning or
descaling agent is used.
Automatic defrosting in the
freezer compartment
See No-Frost technology.
Automatic defrosting with
evaporation of condensation
water
The cooling compartment evap­
orator is defrosted automatically
at regular intervals. The tempe­
ratures in the cooling compart­
ment remain virtually unchanged
during this process. The small
quantity of condensation water
is led into a container via an
outlet channel where it evapo­
rates. The minimum storage
temperature is kept constant in
the freezer compartment during
defrosting.
Automatic detergent
­function
The dishwasher’s control system
automatically detects when de­
tergent tablets are being used
instead of individual de­tergents.
The programme is adjusted to
suit the particular con­c entration
of components, thereby ensur­
ing optimal cleaning and drying
results. This function does not
have to be set manually and
guarantees great results regard­
less of the water hardness.
Automatic programmes
with weight specification
These provide excellent results
when cooking or defrosting
fresh or deep-frozen food in
the microwave. Simply select
the desired programme and
enter the weight of the meal.
B
Baking stone
This accessory turns your oven
into a professional brick oven.
The baking stone is heated to
temperatures of up to 300 °C
by a separate heating element.
Ideal for bread or pizza.
Baking tray spray head
For cleaning large items such
as baking trays, wire racks, metal
filters or vases in the dishwash­
er. The upper basket is removed
from the dishwasher and the
baking tray spray head – which
is supplied as standard – is
fitted. The even distribution of
the water jets ensures optimum
washing results.
Booster function
This is used for quick boiling on
induction cooktops. The boost­
er function increases the power
in each cooking zone by 50%
for a short period of time. Since
this additional power is taken
from an adjoining cooking zone,
the function is only used if the
adjoining cooking zone is not
being used.
Built-in appliance
Fully integrated cooling
appliances: Can be fully inte­
grated into a built-in niche, flushfitted with the furniture elements
on the side, and covered with
furniture panels.
C
Capacity display for filter
cartridge
Baking stone. It can transform
your oven into a professional
brick oven. A separate heating
element provides the necessary
heat.
If a descaling system has been
built into the water inlet, the fil­
ter will have to be changed at
regular intervals. The appliance’s
electronics calculate the capa­
city in accordance with the water
hardness. Whenever the machine
is switched on, the remaining
capacity is briefly shown on the
display.
Cast pan support with
­ pecial enamelling
s
With Vario gas appliances this
is one-piece, while with larger
gas cooktops it is two or threepiece; prevents even small pots
and pans from toppling over.
Not suitable for cleaning in a
dishwasher.
Catalytic special enamelling
The special enamelling at the
back of ovens means that ovens
without the pyrolytic system
are now easier to clean. During
the process of catalysis, dirt is
broken down by oxidation with
atmospheric oxygen at tempera­
tures upwards of 200°C. This
cleaning takes place while the
oven is in normal use. If the oven
is very dirty, you are advised to
clean the non-coated surfaces
by hand, and then heat the oven
up to about 200 °C for a few
minutes. This is a particularly
good way of dissolving fatty
stains. The pyrolytic system is
the only system capable of
optimum oven cleaning.
127
Cleaning programme in the
Combi-steam oven
Container for
second coffee type
Soiling inside the oven is soft­
ened with the help of steam. The
inside of the oven can then be
easily cleaned.
In addition to fresh beans, a
second ground coffee type can
be used.
Cooking timer
D
Deep fryer
Basket hangers: Two baskets
can be inserted into the cover
for draining simultaneously.
Coanda effect
This aerodynamic technique
is used by Gaggenau to extract
the cooking fumes which oc­
cur at the front of a cooktop
more efficiently. Part of the air­
flow generated by the fan exits
through the top of the ventila­
tion hood and is guided down­
wards over the rounded front
edge, intercepting fumes which
might otherwise get past the
front of the ventilation hood.
This new air conduction system
enables efficient air purification
even at lower power levels. As
a result, less energy is used and
less temperate air is removed
from the room. At the same
time, the noise level is reduced
considerably.
Condensation drying
During the dishwasher’s drying
cycle, the hot steam condenses
in the form of droplets on the
sides of the heat exchanger –
which is filled with cold water
– and the water then runs off.
The heat exchanger exploits the
residual heat for drying pur­pos­
es by siphoning off the water
into a container on the side.
Com­pared to conventional ap­
pli­ances, this procedure reduc­
es energy consumption by
15 per cent, and results in
hygienic drying without any
additional energy or an external
air supply.
128
The time at which you want one
or more cooking zones to be
automatically switched off can
be selected up to 90 minutes
in advance. The integrated clock
can also be used as a shortterm timer, irrespective of the
appliance’s other functions.
In the case of appliances from
the Vario cooktop 400 series,
the cooking timer is available as
an accessory via the connecting
strip with timer. Each connect­
ing strip can be used to operate
two appliances.
Cooled housing with
­overheating protection
Gaggenau ovens have a tem­
perature protection system to
protect the appliance and the
fitted units from overheating as
well as an automatically cooled
housing, which continues to
cool down the appliance after
the oven has been used.
Core temperature probe
with automatic shut-off
The core temperature probe in
ovens and Combi-steam ovens
controls the temperature in
the centre of food. Appliances
switch themselves off once the
desired core temperature has
been attained. This ensures that
no matter what is being cooked,
it is always cooked just the way
it should be. The core tempera­
ture probe can also be re­
moved.
Cleaning level (Vario 400):
Water for cleaning the deep
fryer can be brought to the
correct temperature of around
40°C in the appliance itself.
Fat melting setting: This gen­
tle, smoke-free heating method
enables fat to be used consider­
ably longer. It is equally suitable
for use of oil or solid fat.
Swing-out heating element:
For easy cleaning of the stain­
less steel vat, the heating
­e lement can simply be pulled
out and up.
Three-zone, professional
kitchen design:
·
·
·
F
oam expansion zone: The
upper part of the frying basin
is widened to prevent the oil
from overflowing during the
deep-frying of food contain­
ing water or which is deepfrozen.
D
eep-frying zone: Located
directly above the electro­n ­
ically controlled, swing-out
heating element.
C
old oil zone: Food parti­
cles which break off during
deep-frying sink into the cold
oil zone under the heating
element, where the oil tem­
perature is lower than in the
deep-frying zone. The parti­
cles cannot burn and release
no flavour into the oil. This
means that fat can be used
for much longer.
Defrost assistance in the
freezer compartment
During defrosting, the bottom
drawer of the freezer serves as
a collector for the condensation
water.
Descaling programme
The vaporiser container, which
is used to generate steam in the
interior of a Combi-steam oven
with a water tank, or a steam
oven, can be descaled effort­
lessly using this programme.
Simply fill the water tank with a
descaling solution and the pro­
gramme takes around 30 minutes.
Door opening angle in
Vario cooling
The wide-opening doors, which
open to a 115 degree angle, are
truly unique – the particularly
sturdy hinges make it possible.
Where necessary, these hinges
can also be fixed at 90 degrees.
Drawers and shelves can then
be fully extended.
Downdraft ventilation
An interesting and highly-effec­
tive alternative to classic ven­
tilation hoods. Downdraft venti­
lation is integrated directly into
the cooktop and it siphons
off cooking vapours right there
where they emerge. Even the
steam from tall pots is effec­
tively removed if the lid is left
slightly open at the side towards
the ventilation. If you value clear
contours and unrestricted head­
room in your kitchen, down­
draft ventilation is definitely the
most unobtrusive solution. The
design of Gaggenau downdraft
ventilation units is the perfect
match for cooktops from the
Vario 200 and 400 series. All
downdraft ventilation units are
configured with separate re­
mote fan units for air extraction.
Drying programme
With this function, the inside
of the Combi-steam oven can
be dried with hot air. The drying
procedure takes about 20 min­
utes and is recommended after
each steaming or cleaning pro­
cedure.
Dosage assist
Integrated into the top basket,
the dosage assist ensures that
detergent tablets are fully dis­
solved in a controlled manner.
This is a prerequisite for en­sur­
ing the best possible clean­ing
results. Tablets can no lon­g er
fall between plates or into the
cutlery basket. What’s more, the
dosage chamber is positioned
in a way that prevents scraps of
food from dropping into it dur­
ing loading. Yet another advan­
tage: the jet spray no longer
directly hits the inner door and
the appliance is quieter.
Dynamic cold air distribution
A ventilator ensures an even
temperature distribution across
the whole cooling compartment,
thus ensuring longer food-stor­
age times. With dynamic cold
air distribution with Multi-AirFlow, an additional air channel
in the door and additional vents
in the cooling compartment en­
sure faster and more constant
temperature distribution.
E
Eco
In this operating mode, all
energy-dependent functions of
the oven are optimised to make
them especially energy-saving.
For example, the light is switched
off or any available residual heat
is used for baking or roasting.
Electric grill
Independently controlled
heating elements: This enables
you to grill in the front section
while the rear section is used
for keeping warm. Both glow
bars can be folded up for clean­
ing the lava stone container.
With the 400 series wire rack, the
heating elements are covered
so that smoke emissions are very
low since grease is prevented
from dripping onto the heating
elements.
Downdraft ventilation. A highlyeffective alternative to classic
ventilation hoods. Downdraft
ventilation is integrated into
the cooktop and it siphons off
cooking vapours right there
where they emerge.
Solid cast roaster: Practical
accessory for grilling and
­c ooking on a smooth surface,
e.g. shrimps, or vegetables.
Also just the thing for preparing
egg-based dishes such as pan­
cakes or crêpes.
Stainless steel container
with lava stones: With a per­
forated base so that grease
can drip into the removable drip
tray. The stainless steel con­
tainer and the grease drip tray
can be cleaned in the dish­
washer. The lava stones need to
be changed when they become
heavily soiled.
Electronic boiling point
detection
This calibration enables the
electronic system to detect the
boiling point automatically.
This enables the same cooking
results to be achieved, regard­
less of the altitude of the instal­
lation location above sea level.
129
Electronic flame monitoring
with automatic re-ignition
If a burner’s gas flame is extin­
guished accidentally, it is reignit­
ed immediately, and should the
automatic re-ignition of the flame
fail, the gas supply for all burn­
ers is interrupted immediately:
Maximum safety due to the
principle of ionisation.
Electronic temperature
­c ontrol
Precise temperature control
prevents temperature peaks in
ovens which might impair cook­
ing of delicate dishes. With
cooling appliances, precise tem­
perature setting enables longer
storage times. Operation of all
settings and special functions is
via the keyboard, and the tem­
perature is displayed digitally.
Solid cast roaster. Practical
­accessory for grilling and
­c ooking on a smooth surface.
F
Fan unit
Downdraft ventilation units are
operated via a separate fan. Fan
units can be installed, depend­
ing on the construction type, in
kitchen furniture, in another
adjoining room, in the cellar,
loft or outside, on the wall or
roof. As in the case of an inte­
grated fan, the functions are
controlled via the control panel
of the ventilation unit. The re­
mote fan units are supplied for
air extraction.
Fast cooling
Similar in function and effect to
the fast freezing function. Auto­
matic fast cooling generates the
maximum chilling power, there­
by minimising the warming up
of items already stored in the
refrigerator when new items are
added. The appliance auto­ma­t ­
ically reverts to the standard
mode.
130
Fast freezing
This maximum power setting is
for the quick freezing of unfrozen
items, while also preventing al­
ready frozen items from warming
up when new items are added to
the compartment. What’s more,
fast freezing has a beneficial im­
pact on the durability and qual­
ity of frozen food after thawing.
This setting ensures that the
cell structure of frozen food is
not damaged by the freezing
process, thereby preserving the
food’s taste and freshness. The
appliance automatically reverts
to the standard mode.
Fast ignition
Press the knob on the gas
cooktop, turn to the desired
setting and release – the elec­
tronics immediately ignite the
flame and keep it burning with­
out the user having to keep the
knob pressed.
Fixed inlet and outlet ­water
connection
During installation, the Combisteam oven is connected direct­
ly to the water inlet and outlet.
This means that fresh water is
always available for all cooking
tasks and that you don’t have to
fill and empty a water tank.
Flex Plus drawer: It is available
as a special accessory for all
dishwashers with 6 programmes.
Used as a third ­loading level
above the upper basket, it is
ideal for large items of cutlery,
cooking utensils or espresso
cups. When fitted with this draw­
er, the dishwasher’s capacity
increases to 14 place settings.
Lower basket: With dividable
glass holders, folding spines,
foldable racks and a large
cutlery basket, this provides
plenty of leeway to load the
appliance as you see fit.
Upper basket: The extra
extendable, smooth running
pull-out rack and Rackmatic
mean there’s virtually no limit
to the possible loading combi­
nations. Thanks to its ball bear­
ing mounted telescopic rails,
the basket can be easily pulled
out – even when carrying a
heavy load. What’s more, dishes
and glasses are easy to access,
even when they are at the back
of the appliance. All folding
spines, foldable racks and glass
support bars can be fully folded,
thereby ensuring even greater
flexibility.
Freezing capacity
The maximum amount of unfrozen
goods that can be cooled
down to at least –24 °C within
24 hours.
Flex Plus basket system
For greater versatility and con­
venience when loading and
unloading. This system is parti­c ­
ularly flexible and can accom­
modate plates with a diameter
of up to 33 cm. All dishwashers
with 6 programmes feature this
system as standard.
Fresh cooling
In order to preserve appear­
ance, taste and nutrients for
longer, the fresh cooling com­
partment is kept up to 3 °C
cooler. This means that fresh
meat, ham, salami and cheese
can be stored for almost twice
as long as in conventional cool­
ing systems.
Fresh cooling close to 0°C
Creates storage conditions for
fresh food similar to a profes­
sional cold storage unit. The
temperature in the fresh cooling
zone is kept consistently at just
above 0 °C. Unwanted decom­
position processes are slowed
down, food is kept fresh for an
average of twice as long as in
conventional cooling systems,
and there is no danger of food
being spoiled through overcooling.
Frying sensor
The frying sensor function lets
you make fried food that is
healthier and uniquely delicious.
This is because the frying sen­
sor ensures that the tempera­
ture remains constant – enabling the food to be browned
evenly on all sides. At the same
time, the constant temperature
prevents the pan from overheat­
ing. This saves energy and is
healthy because no fumes are
produced and the fat doesn’t
burn. Once a particular cooking
zone has been selected, the
frying sensor function is acti­
vated by touching the graphic
thermometer symbol on the
cooktop. As soon as the ideal
temperature has been reached
for starting to fry, there is an
audible signal. Apart from the
pre-set frying level “min”, three
other levels can be chosen –
“med”, “med+” and “max” de­
pending on the type of food you
want to fry.
Fully automatic rinse
­programme
Function display 300 series
ovens
All functions and the time are
shown clearly on the display
screen of the 300 series ovens.
The digital clock can also be
used as a short-term timer,
irrespective of the function set
for the appliance. The timer
functions allow both the length
of the cooking process and the
time at which the oven is to be
switched off to be programmed
up to 24 hours in advance.
G
Gaggenau enamel
Practically nothing sticks to this
special blue enamel surface.
A simple wipe with a wet sponge
and a little washing-up liquid
generally suffices for cleaning
after using the oven. Thanks to
their Gaggenau enamel surface,
the grill pan and oven tray can
also be cleaned easily in the
dishwasher.
Gastronorm
Gastronorm roaster: For sear­
ing and braising on induction
cooktops and in Gaggenau
ovens with the roasting function,
insofar as they are equipped
with the pull-out system. The top
and bottom parts of the cast
aluminium Gastronorm roaster
in the GN ⅔ format can also
be used independently of one
another. The multi-layered mate­
rial ensures even heat distribu­
tion and is easy to clean thanks
to the non-stick coating.
Flex Plus basket system. For great versatility and convenience when
loading and unloading.
Whenever the coffee machine
is switched on or off, all water
pipes – including the coffee
dispenser – are rinsed. A big
plus for both hygiene and a fullbodied coffee taste.
131
Glass basket
(special accessory)
Grease filter in front of hot
air fan
This special basket prevents
cups and glasses from tilting
over during washing and can
accommodate up to twelve
long-stemmed wine or cham­
pagne glasses, or 24 cups.
The fumes which occur during
baking and frying are caught by
a removable grease filter, which
can be cleaned simply and easi­
ly in the dishwasher. For ovens
with the pyrolytic system, no
filter is necessary since dirt in
the area around the hot air fan
can be removed by pyrolysis.
Glass care Plus technology
Gaggenau enamel. Practically
nothing sticks to this special
blue enamel surface. To clean,
it usually suffices to wipe it
with a wet sponge and a little
washing-up liquid.
Prevents glass corrosion, even
when washing fragile glassware.
The constant temperature con­
trol and lower drying tempera­
ture protect glass and the de­c ­
orative elements of crockery.
Several components ensure
this: the heat exchanger immedi­
ately balances out the temper­
ature peaks that can damage
glass. Furthermore, fresh water
is added as required to ensure
that the water’s hardness is
constantly held above 5°DH
during the wash cycle. This
prevents glasses from losing
their sheen due to the water
being too soft. This is coupled
with the Flex Plus basket system,
which ensures that glasses
drip-dry even more effectively
by holding them in an optimal
position, and Zeolite technology
for low temperature drying –
a procedure that delivers firstclass drying results, even at
low temperatures that are gentle
on glass.
Grease filter
As with all Gaggenau ventilation
hoods, the air containing grease
and odour particles first passes
through a grease filter, which
removes up to 95 per cent of
the grease from the air. This
prevents any deposits forming
on the inside of the hood or
ventilation pipes.
Stainless steel grease filter:
The filter can be easily removed
for cleaning in the dishwasher.
132
Grease filter saturation

H
Halogen lighting
For extra bright, clear light in
the oven interior. Each phase
during the baking, roasting or
steaming procedure can be
monitored with glare-free light.
Hard-chromed cooking
surface
See Teppan Yaki.
A signal on the control panel
reminds you that the grease fil­
ter needs to be cleaned. Soiled
filters are not as effective and
increase the noise level of the
ventilation system.
Heating element
This is inserted into the socket
inside the Gaggenau oven for
focussed heating of the baking
stone or Gastronorm roaster.
Grinding gear
Freshly ground coffee beans are
a prerequisite for tasty coffee or
espresso. The full coffee aroma
develops through the high-qual­
ity conical grinding gear. You
can choose between six grind­
ing levels – from fine to rough –
depending on the user’s indi­
vidual preferences.
Hot air
Ground coffee portioning
Refrigerators: A humidity
fleece or a regulator ensures
that the natural humidity is
retained. This creates ideal
storage conditions, particularly
for fruit and vegetables, salad
and fresh herbs. The appear­
ance, taste, vitamins and nutri­
ents are retained for much
longer.
The strength of coffee can be
set individually from “very mild”
all the way up to “extra strong”
(coffee quantity between 7 and
14 g). The setting is indicated in
the function display.
See Steaming.
Humidity control
For calibrated control of humid­
ity in cooling appliances or
wine climate cabinets.
Wine climate cabinets: The
defrost function of state-of-theart refrigerators reduces humid­
ity in the interior. By switching
on the ventilator, humidity can
be retained in the appliance so
that drying out is avoided.
I
Ice and water dispenser
This dispenser for ice cubes,
crushed ice and chilled water,
can be removed while the door
is closed. Glasses, large jugs
or sports bottles can be filled
up via the water dispenser.
The integrated ice dispenser is
located in the freezer compart­
ment. These appliances require
a fixed inlet water connection.
Induction cooktops
Induction is a method of heat
transfer that makes optimum use
of energy. Induction involves a
precise and responsive power
delivery via a magnetic field,
and also speeds up cooking
times – just like gas. Since the
induction method means that
only the bottom of the pot is
heated, there is no loss of un­
used heat. Compared to glass
ceramic cooktops, induction
cooktops hardly heat up at all,
so that spilled food and liquid
hardly ever burn. Pots and pans
of all shapes and sizes are suit­
able for use on a cooking zone –
the system automatically de­
tects the diameter of the pot’s
base and only heats the appro­
priate area. Once the pot is
removed, the zone doesn’t emit
any more energy until the next
pot is placed on it. The booster
function provides more power –
raising the energy delivered to
a cooking zone by 50 % for a
brief period. Pots and pans
which are suitable for induction
cooking can be identified either
by their labelling or by the fact
that a magnet placed on the
pan’s base sticks to the base.
Info-Light
In fully integrated dishwashers,
a red dot of light projected onto
the ground indicates that a rinse
programme is in operation. The
tiny red light disappears when
the programme ends. This helps
to prevent the unintentional and
premature opening of very quiet
dishwashers.
Interior for wine climate
cabinets
Bottle trays in beech and
aluminium: The untreated
beech ensures that no aroma
transfer can occur. The wood
is rounded off to protect the
sensitive labels.
Interval ventilation
Innowave
This sophisticated feature,
which is also known as inverter
technology, offers microwave
power settings with variable
energy outputs. Compared to
conventional appliances, it
is a much more gentle way of
preparing food as users can
choose between high, medium
and low power settings. This
means fast and consistent
results when both cooking and
thawing. Since the heat pen­
etrates gently, food which is
overcooked at the top or on the
edges will become a thing of
the past – no more half-cooked
food which is still frozen in
the middle. In fact, your food
will both look and taste better.
When interval ventilation is
­a ctivated, the ventilation hood
automatically switches to the
preselected output level for five
minutes each hour. This means
that used or stale air can be
reg­u larly extracted from the
room – also at night or during
long absences.
Intensive mode
Three power settings and an
intensive mode can be activated
via individual control buttons
on the ventilation appliances.
Depending on the particular
model and setting, the intensive
mode automatically reverts to
the previously selected power
setting after three, five or ten
minutes of operation.
Ice and water dispenser. Glasses
and large jugs can be filled up
with ice cubes, crushed ice or
cooled drinking water while the
door is closed.
Interior light
A bright white light evenly illu­
minates the interior from above,
meaning that users have a
better view of the appliance’s
contents.

K
Knobs
Knobs of the Vario cooktops 400
series. Since knobs need to be
both pressed and turned to activate the corresponding function,
all appliances are protected
against unintentional switching
on. Before a knob can be turned,
it must be pushed through a
clearly perceptible stop position.
Active cooking zones are indi­
cated by an orange illuminated
ring.
Vario appliances of the 400
series: Since knobs need to
be both pressed and turned to
activate the corresponding
function, all appliances are pro­
tected against unintentional
switching on. Before a knob can
be turned, it must be pushed
through a clearly perceptible
stop position. The temperature
selection knobs on electrical
appliances may then be turned
in either direction, even past the
zero setting. The setting select­
ed for a cooking zone using a
particular knob position is then
retained. Active cooking zones
are indicated by an orange illu­
minated ring. On gas appliances,
the knob can only be turned in
one direction; ring illumination
is not possible in this case.
Vario appliances of the 200
series: The gas appliances are
protected against unintentional
activation because their control
knobs have to be both pressed
and turned.
Load sensor
Ensures the optimal use of
water, thereby reducing expend­
iture on water and electricity.
The system works with a rotation
sensor that measures the water
level in the pump well. It drops
as the load increases, because
more water is required for wet­
ting the dishes. This is detected
by the load sensor, which then
promptly triggers an appropriate
water intake. This prevents the
pump from running idle, thereby
avoiding the noise peaks that
would otherwise occur.
Long-term timer
This function can keep dishes
warm in the oven at a selected
temperature (such as 85 °C)
for any period between 24 and
74 hours without the user having
to operate the appliance. The
interior lighting is switched off
while the function is in operation.

200 series ovens.
134
The main functions activated via
the control knobs are always vis­
ible on the bright LCD display in
ovens of the 200 series. The other
touch key functions – with their
convenient setting options – only
become visible when needed.
The digital clock can also be
used as a short-term timer, irrespective of the function set for
the appliance. The timer func­
tions allow both the length of the
cooking pro­c ess and the time
at which the appliance is to be
switched off to be programmed
up to 24 hours in advance.
All settings are stored for a
few seconds after the cooktop
is switched off. Consequently,
if the appliance is switched
off unintentionally, all previously
entered values can be easily
restored.
Memory recipes
This function, which is available
in both ovens and Combi-steam
ovens, allows you to save all
settings for a prepared dish so
that they can be easily retrieved
at any time. Six dishes can be
programmed, and up to five dif­
ferent steps or settings can
be saved for each dish – at the
push of a button after every
successful cooking step. If the
core temperature probe is
used, the respective core tem­
peratures are saved instead of
the cooking times. This ensures
the same delicious outcome
every time, even if portion sizes
vary.
Microwave cooking
As connoisseurs know, micro­
waves have become indispen­s ­
able – for everything from
heating up pre-prepared por­
tions of food to making hot
drinks in a glass, from bringing
food from the refrigerator to
serving temperature in no time
at all to the quick thawing of
frozen foods. The key element
of any microwave is the mag­
netron. This creates magnetic
waves, the energy of which is
evenly spread out in the cooking
compartment by means of a
wave distributor. When the
microwaves hit the item being
cooked, they cause the water
molecules within the food to
oscillate at high speed. The
oscillating molecules create
friction, which in turn generates
heat. In microwaves, the heat
is therefore generated inside the
items being cooked – and not
from outside, as is the case in
conventional ovens.
Multiple glazing with
safety glass
The glazing in the oven door in­
volves up to four adjacent panes
of glass. The temperature of the
outer pane remains low, even
when the pyrolytic process is at
its maximum temperature.
N
No-Frost technology
If you own an appliance with
No-Frost technology, you can
say goodbye forever to the
tedious task of emptying and
defrosting the freezer compart­
ment – a job which has to be
done about every six months
with conventional appliances.
What’s more, there is no more
frost build-up on frozen goods.
O
Options for dishwashers
Energy Save: This option uses
Zeolite technology to reduce
electricity consumption, thereby
saving up to 15 % of energy.
Extra Dry: For improved drying
performance, especially for
plastic items such as Tupper­
ware. This optimised drying
efficiency is achieved with the
combined help of Zeolite tech­
nology, a higher water tempera­
ture during the clear rinse and
an extended drying cycle.
Intensive: For washing heavily
soiled pots and pans in the bot­
tom basket while gently clean­
ing fragile glasses in the upper
basket at the same time. By in­
creasing the spraying pressure
by 20%, as well as running addi­
tional wash cycles and heating
phases, this option transforms
the entire lower basket into
an intensive zone. At the same
time, the water pressure and
tempe­r ­a ture in the upper basket
are consistent with the selected
programme.
Power: The main programmes
can be sped up considerably
with this option whenever items
– even those that are heavily
soiled – are needed again in a
hurry. When combined with
Standard Eco, the best perform­
ance (washing and drying effi­
ciency class A according to
the Euro label) is produced in
a mere 57 minutes with Vario
dishwashers, and in 59 minutes
with Power dishwashers. That’s
equivalent to a time saving of
up to 60 %. Auto programmes
run up to 30 % faster.
Options menu
Specific functions, such as
switching to a certain cooking
zone, can be adjusted to suit
individual cooking habits. The
maximum power limit of the
cooktop can also be set via the
options menu, as can the child
lock, which completely deacti­
vates the control panel if re­
quired.
P
Programmes
for dishwashers
Auto: Depending on the level of
soiling, this programme – with
the help of the Aqua sensor –
automatically selects the correct
temperature, length of the wash
cycle and amount of water need­
ed to deliver optimal results,
while also ensuring the efficient
consumption of water and en­
ergy. You can choose between
different tem­perature ranges:
65°C to 75°C for heavily soiled
pots and pans, 45°C to 65°C for
normally soiled dishes or a gentle
35°C to 45°C for glasses.
Pre-rinse: This programme
softens stubborn food stains
before the actual wash cycle,
thereby delivering the best
possible washing results.
Quick 45°C: This programme
omits the prewash and has
a shorter drying cycle. This
means that lightly soiled items
are practically dry and ready for
use within a mere 30 minutes.
Pot detection
In induction cooking, only the
bottoms of pots and pans are
heated. The system detects the
diameter of the magnetic base
of each individual pot and only
that precise area is heated. This
means that you are free to use
pots and pans of all sizes with­
out wasting any energy. Once
the pot/pan is removed from the
activated cooking zone, the
zone won’t emit any more energy
until the next pot/pan is placed
on it.
Standard Eco: This wash
programme operates at a tem­
perature of 50 °C to 55 °C
instead of 60 °C to 65 °C, so
it consumes less water and
energy compared to regular
standard programmes.
Presentation light
In order to showcase their valu­
able contents in the best pos­
sible fashion, all the wine climate
cabinets include a presentation
light that can be optionally
activated. The use of cold light
prevents any temperature in­
crease in the interior.
135
Pull-out system
The pull-out system with pyro­l­
ysis-safe cast iron frame allows
safe and easy access to the food
inside the oven. Thanks to its
fully extendable double tele­
scopic pull-out rack, it makes
light work of moving even heavy
and cumbersome food out in
front of the cooking compart­
ment. It makes no difference if
the food is on a baking tray, wire
rack or glass tray, skewered on
the rotisserie spit or braising in
the Gastronorm roaster. The
pull-out system can be installed
on every oven level. Only the two
easily detachable extension rails
need to be clean­ed. The remain­
ing cast iron frame is easily
cleaned by the oven’s pyrolytic
system.
Q
Quick boil timer
Roasting zone
This is used for heating up or
boiling quickly. The heat is in­
creased to the maximum level.
The duration can be individually
set to last between one and
20 minutes. If no specific dura­
tion is selected, the glass
ceramic cooktop automatically
switches back to the cooking
setting after approx. three
mi­nutes. Induction cooktops
switch back after approx. one
minute.
R
Pyrolytic system
Rackmatic
The inevitable soiling of the
oven’s interior caused by grease
spatters when roasting or gril­l­
ing is removed by this cleaning
programme, which operates
at 485°C. The length of the
programme is set by the manu­
facturer. Needless to say,
the oven door is locked during
cleaning. Once the oven has
cooled down, all you need to do
is to wipe the interior with a
damp cloth. When the auto­
pyrolytic system is in operation,
the appliance automatically
gauges the level of soiling in the
oven’s interior. It then auto­
matically selects the optimum
cleaning time.
Even when fully loaded, the
height of the dishwasher’s upper
basket can be easily adjusted
by up to 5 cm. This means that
larger items – such as tall
­glasses in the upper basket or
plates in the lower one – can
be easily and flexibly accommo­
dated without having to rear­
range everything.
Regeneration
See Steaming.
Regeneration electronics
Instead of automatically regen­
erating the water softening
system after each wash, regen­
eration is only activated when
the need arises. This is calcu­
lated by electronics that emit
a signal when the next dose of
salt solution has to be added
to the water softening system.
This means that the optimal
amount of water and salt re­
quired to counteract the re-
136
spective water hardness is
used. This keeps costs down
and is kind to the environment.
Two cooking zones of a glass
ceramic cooktop can be
switched on so they are inter­
connected, thus enlarging them
to the dimensions of a roasting
tin. The Gaggenau cast roaster
is custom-made so that it fits
the 18 x 41.5 cm roasting zone
perfectly. On induction cook­
tops, they are interconnected
automatically if appropriately
sized cookware is placed on the
roasting zone.
Rotisserie spit
Uniform grilling from all sides
– just the thing for poultry, a
rolled roast or a leg of lamb.
The rotis­serie spit ensures that
meat gets crispy and brown on
all sides. For best results,
select grilling or top heat as the
operating mode. The spit is
suitable for meat weighing up
to 6 kg.
Run-on function
Just the thing for effective room
ventilation. Once activated, the
function ensures that the ventila­
tion appliance runs on for up
to ten minutes after use on any
setting, before automatically
switching itself off.
S
Safety glass shelves
Glass is hygienic and ensures
good visibility. The shelves can
be adjusted in height to enable
the cooling compartment to be
segmented as required. Some
appliances also have a motor­
ised shelf.
Safety lock
The safety lock mechanism in
Gaggenau ovens terminates
any heating mode after 12 hours
of inaction on the part of the
user, assuming that the longterm timer has not been acti­
vated. Most cooktops and Vario
appliances switch themselves
off after a particular period of
inaction on the part of the user.
The trigger period depends on
the selected output level.
Sealing flaps
The suction vent in the down­
draft ventilation system in the
Vario 400 series is sealed when
the system is not in use. When
the ventilation is switched off,
the flaps remain open for a few
seconds until the fan comes to
a full stop. The flaps then close
automatically.
Sensor control
All the settings of the cooking
zones are easily adjusted with
one touch. The levels of the
individual cooking zones are
graphically displayed on the
glass ceramic surface and the
operating status is indicated
aswell. And the cooktop is
secure against being switched
on accidentally by children or
while cleaning. The inadvertent
placing of objects on the con­
trol panel is also not enough
to switch on the appliance. By
touching the main switch during
operation, all the cooking zones
are immediately switched off.
If a cooking zone is switched on
unintentionally, it will automatic­
ally switch itself back off after
20 seconds if no further buttons
are pressed.
Soft-Light
The uniform cooktop illumina­
tion, which comes with ventila­
tion appliances, automatically
goes on and off gradually, and
it can be dimmed manually from
maximum illumination while
cooking to atmospheric back­
ground lighting.
Settings menu
Many settings for the oven/
Combi-steam oven can be
changed here, depending on the
model. The time, display pro­p ­
erties such as brightness and
key tones, and activation of the
Super-Quick function, can all be
set here. In the clearly arranged
menu, which has one control
level, options are displayed by
icons and, on some models,
using a clear text display. The
desired setting can be selected
conveniently at the push of a
button.
Spit
Side-opening oven door
Stainless steel grease filter
The door of the appliance is
fitted with a thermally insulated
pane of clear glass so that you
can keep an eye on what is
cooking. The handle on the side
is protected against high tem­
peratures. The door itself swiv­
els open to a full 180 degrees,
thereby facilitating easy access
from the front. The direction in
which you want the door to
open must be specified when
ordering the appliance, since
the side on which the door
hinge is positioned cannot be
subsequently changed.
See Grease filter.
Single portion cleaning
The water pipes are rinsed
each time coffee is prepared,
and not just when the machine
is turned on or off. This means
no residual water, 100% hygiene
and a full coffee flavour.
See Rotisserie spit.
Stainless steel cooking
interior
The seamless stainless steel
cooking interior of the Combisteam or steam oven meets
the highest hygiene standards.
The 60 watt halogen lighting
provides a splendid light setting
for whatever you are cooking.
Stainless steel interior
Safety glass shelves.
Glass is hygienic and
ensures good visibility.
The warming drawer has a
hygienic stainless steel surface
for both preheating dinnerware
and keeping meals warm. All the
Vario cooling appliances of the
400 series are similarly lined
with stainless steel on the inside.
When combined with oxygen,
stainless steel also reduces the
formation of odours.
Steam and hot water
function
For quick preparation of cap­
puccino, tea or other hot drinks.
No time is wasted, even with
latte macchiato – milk is frothed
and then the coffee brewed
straight afterwards without any
interruption.
137
Steamer
Unlike the steam oven or Combisteam oven, the steamer can
also be used for reducing stock
or wine. Not just water.
Boiling point detection: The
appliance automatically recog­
nises the boiling point, which is
dependent on the altitude above
sea level.
Cooking inserts: The basic
set comprises one perforated
and one unperforated cooking
insert. In this way, two meals
with different cooking times can
be staggered so that they are
ready at the same time.
Electronic steam control:
This ensures that only as much
steam is produced as is required
for the cooking process.
Steamer. For the gentle steam­
ing of meat, fish and vegetables.
Two cooking inserts – one per­
forated and one unperforated –
are part of the basic set.
Electronic temperature
­ ontrol: Temperature control
c
in increments of 5 °C enables
cooking at a precisely set tem­
perature between 45 °C and
95 °C or steaming at 100 °C.
Delicate dishes such as fish are
kept at a constant temperature
below boiling point to prevent
them from disintegrating. Like­
wise, meals can be defrosted,
heated up gently or kept warm
for a long period without any
loss of taste.
Glass cover: Enables the
cooking progress to be moni­
tored at all times. As Gaggenau
steam­ers do not use pressure,
the glass cover can also
be removed during steaming.
Pasta basket: Cooks pasta
to perfection. To strain, simply
drain the water.
Steaming
Almost everything which is
normally boiled in water can be
cooked much more healthily
in steam, ensuring that vitamins
and minerals are preserved.
Whatever you are cooking, it
138
will taste more natural, have a
more intense taste and consistency, and colour will be bet­ter
preserved. Several Gastronorm
inserts containing different
foods to be steamed can be
inserted simultaneously into the
Combi-steam or steam ovens.
The steam prevents taste being
transferred between the individ­
ual meals. By combining steam
with hot air, as in the Gaggenau
Combi-steam oven, the full
range of cooking options are
available:
Combi-steaming: Combining
steam with hot air between
30°C and 230°C ensures many
types of meat come out par­­
ticularly succulent and tender.
In this operating mode, the inte­
rior of the oven is hermetically
sealed and humidity prevents
the meat from becoming too dry.
A roast will cook in its own
juices at a very low humidity level.
Dough fermentation: The
correct conditions for getting
dough to ferment are a low
temperature of no more than
50 °C with humid air.
Hot air: This corresponds to
the hot air in a conventional
oven. The interior of the oven is
ventilated by an opening which
allows any humidity to escape.
This is particularly important,
for instance, with cakes and
fresh fruit, which need to give
off humidity during baking to
prevent the pastry becoming
too soft.
Juice extraction: Juice from
berries and other fruits can be
extracted conveniently using a
perforated cooking insert. The
juice is caught in a non-perfo­
rated insert positioned below it.
Low temperature cooking:
This is a professional cooking
method for cooking meat to per­
fection. It is initially browned,
before being cooked slowly and
gently over a long cooking time.
A large piece of roast beef for
example, is cooked better than
with any other cooking method –
tender and pink throughout
apart from a millimetre-thin edge
and unbeatably succulent. And
after it is cooked, the meat can
also be kept warm for a long time
so it remains perfect.
Low temperature steaming:
Steaming with 100 % steamsaturated air at low temper­
atures guarantees optimum heat
transfer without drying out and
is therefore ideal for cooking
fish. Protein is prevented from
either congealing or escaping.
As a result, fish is always ten­der
and succulent with a natural pro­
tein taste and its consistency
is retained.
Misting: At the push of a button,
a measured quantity of steam
is injected into bread or confec­
tionery. This is particularly use­
ful when baking bread, rolls and
pastries, or when baking bread
which has been frozen.
Regeneration: Steaming with­
out pressure is also the perfect
way to regenerate meals which
have been prepared beforehand,
without impairing the quality.
It beats all other reheating meth­
ods hands down.
Steam-baking: Steam and hot
air at higher temperatures can
also be used for baking and
braising. The humidity prevents
meat from drying out, particu­
larly with poultry, bread or pas­
tries, and browns the surface so
it is crispy. The hot steam trans­
fers the heat twice as effectively
as hot air and also reaches
the interior of whatever you are
cooking, enabling your meals
to taste more professional than
ever.
Steam removal: At the push
of a button, the inside wall of
the appliance is cooled down
with cold water and the steam
vapour condenses within around
20 seconds. This reduces the
emission of steam when the door
is opened.
Thawing: Steam and low tem­
peratures are ideal for the gentle
thawing of deep-frozen food.
Storage time after a
malfunction
It indicates the time needed for
the temperature in a fully loaded
freezer compartment to rise
to –9 °C in the event of a mal­
function. Shorter times apply
when the freezer compartment
is not full.
Hard-chromed cooking
­surface (Vario cooktops 400
series): Just like a good cast
pan, it will show signs of use, but
the surface will always remain
easy to clean and does not wear.
Stainless steel sandwich
cooking surface (Vario cooktops 200 series): For the maxi­
mum cooking area with even
heat distribution in the compact
dimensions of the 200 series.
When used, this surface will
also take on an individual look
but this will in no way impact
on its operation.
Turn-on/turn-off timer
A turn-on/turn-off timer can be
programmed so that the coffee
machine turns itself on auto­
matically, performs the rinse
programme and increases
the temperature to the preprogrammed setting. The ma­
chine is then ready for opera­
tion. The turn-off timer on the
machine can be set for between
one and twelve hours after it
was last used.
Twist-Pad control
Super-Quick cooking zones
Once switched on, the desired
heat is quickly attained and just
as swiftly reduced. Super-Quick
ensures an even heat release
and is easy to regulate. What’s
more, a red light which increas­
es in size allows you to monitor
the heating progress.
T
Temperature regulation
Warming stage: Regulated
setting, keeps meals warm with
greater precision than in a pot.
Thermoelectric flame
monitoring
Automatic ignition of the flame
on operating the knob. The knob
must be held for a short time,
until the thermo-element has
reached the required tempera­
ture for a stable flame. Should
the gas flame go out unintention­
ally, the gas supply to all burners
is automatically interrupted.
See Electronic temperature
control.
The manoeuvrable magnetic
knob on the Twist-Pad makes
cooktop control particularly
easy. To activate a particular
cooking zone, briefly move the
knob towards the zone in ques­
tion and then turn it to select
the desired power setting. LED
displays in the cooktop show
the selected setting. The magnet
always returns the knob to its
idle position in the middle of
the Twist-Pad. The knob can
be removed to facilitate cleaning
the smooth-surface cooktop.
The main switch – along with
additional functions such as the
timer, frying sensor or booster –
are activated via sensor buttons.
Thermo block pressure
pump system
Teppan Yaki
For roasting and cooking Japa­
nese style, directly on the smooth
metal surface – a more precise
cooking procedure than with a
pan or grill. With an adjustable
surface temperature control –
either across the whole surface
or, as is the case with the
Vario 400, just half of it.
Cleaning setting: The water
for cleaning the Teppan Yaki
VP 230 can be heated up to the
desired temperature of about
40°C directly on the appliance
itself.
The thermo block ensures that
water always has the ideal tem­
perature for coffee or steam.
The quantity of water needed is
released at high pressure into
the brewing chamber, allowing
the full coffee aroma to unfold.
Time delay
The electronic timer allows you
to specify when the wash
­p rogramme is to begin – up to
24 hours in advance.
Twist-Pad control. A manoeuvrable magnetic knob makes control
particularly easy. The knob is removed to facilitate cleaning the

U
Universal pan
This pan for collecting meat
juices completes the micro­
wave set. It is also suitable for
cooking or defrosting. It in­
cludes an accessory attach­
ment for grilling.
Water level warning
An acoustic signal is emitted
when the water tank in the steam
oven is empty. The display will
show a tap symbol. The heating
process is then interrupted. The
water tank has to be filled and
reinserted in order to continue
cooking.
Water tank
UV protection
In order to prevent daylight from
altering the bouquet of wine,
the glass doors of the wine
climate cabinets also include
UV protection.
V
Water tank. With a capacity of
1.3 litres, a sufficient supply of
water is assured in Combi-steam
ovens and steam ovens in the
absence of a fixed connection.
Vacation mode for
refrigerators and freezers
An energy-saving programme
can be activated in order to
keep your foodstuffs cooled or
frozen while you are away for
longer periods.
W
Water filter with saturation
indicator
If your tap water is not of the best
quality, it’s possible to retrofit
your coffee machine with a water
filter. This accessory ensures
a better taste. A saturation indi­
cator will remind you when the
filter has to be changed, which
is a simple task. The cooling
appliances with ice makers can
also be retrofitted with a water
filter with saturation indicator as
a special accessory.
140
With a capacity of 1.3 litres,
the water tank in Combi-steam
and steam ovens ensures a
sufficient supply of water in the
absence of a fixed inlet and
outlet water connection. Since
the steam is generated in the
cooking compartment, the water
tank is protected against calci­
fication to the greatest possible
degree. The tank is easy to
handle and transparent, mean­
ing that the water level can be
checked at a glance. Due to
hygiene considerations, the tank
has to be emptied after every
cooking session: it should not
be cleaned in the dishwasher.
Z
Zeolite technology
Thanks to this state-of-the-art
technology, the Vario dishwasher
supports a huge range of op­
tions. Zeolite is a silicate mate­
rial which, thanks to its porous
structure and special properties,
absorbs moisture very quickly.
This releases heat which can
be used for several purposes –
such as shortening the pro­
gramme times, enhancing the
drying performance or conserv­
ing energy. Zeolite completely
regenerates itself after each
wash cycle and has a service life
as long as that of the appliance.

The difference is Gaggenau.
Surrounding yourself with objects with which
you’re entirely satisfied, has got to be one of
life’s greatest privileges. So often, finding them
involves a lengthy search where every detail
constitutes knowledge gained. And as your
knowledge grows, so your demands increase.
At Gaggenau, our business is developing
appliances for the domestic kitchen and, in doing
so, we make no compromises in our attempt to
attain the greatest possible perfection. We’re guided by the experiences and demands of
professionals at all times, and this applies as much
to the features on our appliances as it does to
their appearance. We’ll show you features you’ll wonder how you ever
did without – new technological innovations which
make long-familiar problems a thing of the past. Our practical masterpieces are crafted by hand in
a process involving numerous steps to create
objects of timeless beauty which, at the same
time, are endlessly robust.
