Observe caution with oils and fats. They may
overheat and burn easily. Foodstuffs that are
prepared in fat and oil (e.g. French fries) must only
be prepared under constant supervision!
Technical modifications reserved.
As the user, you yourself are responsible for
maintenance and proper use in the household.
Only ever operate the appliance under supervision.
Make sure that the burner parts are correctly fitted.
1.2 Operating for the first time
The appliance must only be operated with a wok, a
pot or a pan on a ring.
Before operating the appliance for the first time,
please pay attention to the following notes:
If you have fitted the appliance cover VD 201-010
(special accessory) on the appliance, it must not be
closed until the appliance has cooled down
completely. Do not operate the appliance with the
cover closed! Heat development may damage the
appliance and the cover. Do not use the appliance
cover as a surface for placing objects or for
keeping things warm.
The appliance must only be connected by an
authorised specialist.
The appliance must not be combined with hob
ventilators (VL 041/051).
Important: the appliance heats up during
operation. Keep children away
Do not clean the appliance with a steam cleaning
apparatus or with water pressure – risk of shortcircuits!
Read through these instructions attentively before
operating the appliance for the first time.
The rating plate for this appliance is included on
a separate sheet. Keep the rating plate in a safe
place along with your operating and assembly
Remove the packaging from the appliance and
dispose of it properly.
Keep packaging elements away from children.
Thoroughly clean the appliance and accessories
before using them for the first time. This will
eliminate any “newness" smells and soiling (see
chapter entitled “Cleaning and care").
Isolate the appliance from the mains during every
maintenance operation. To do this, remove the
mains plug or actuate the corresponding fuse.
Close the gas supply.
Repairs must be carried out by authorised
specialists, thus ensuring electrical safety.
No warranty claims can be lodged for any damage
resulting from failure to observe these instructions.
1.3 About use
The appliance is intended solely for use in the
household and must not be put to any other uses.
Use the appliance to prepare meals only. It must not
be used to heat up the room in which it is installed.
Use of a gas cooker generates heat and humidity
in the room where it is installed. This is why
attention must be paid to good kitchen ventilation.
Ventilation openings must be kept unobstructed.
Prolonged use of the appliance may call for
additional ventilation such as opening a window or
a door, or stronger air extraction by an extractor
To guarantee good combustion, the room in
which the appliance is installed must have a
minimum volume of 10 m 3 and must possess a
door that opens outdoors or a window that can
be opened.
Do not operate the cooking position without a pot
or a pan or a wok placed on it. Do not heat up any
empty pots or pans; this may result in a build-up
of heat. Use pots and pans with thicker bottoms
because heat distribution is particularly improved
in the low setting. The better the size of pots and
pans is adapted to the burner size, the better the
heat of the gas flame will be exploited and the
more costs will be saved.
It is not permitted to use grilling stones because the
resulting build-up of heat may damage the
Switch the burners to the low setting whenever you
remove pots or pans briefly, thus saving gas and
reducing pollution.
Whenever the gas hob is fitted under a vapour
extractor hood, always cover the rings with pots
or pans. Otherwise, parts of the vapour extractor
hood may become damaged by the extreme heat
development or grease residues in the filter may
ignite. Ensure an adequate supply of air when using
a vapour extractor operating in the exhaust air
Note: the appliance must not be combined with
hob ventilators (VL 041/051).
After igniting, keep the control knob pressed for
around 5-8 seconds more. The thermal sensor
must be heated for 5-8 seconds before the knob
can be released.
In the event of a power failure, you can also
ignite the unit with matches or any other ignition
aid. The thermal protection facility that prevent gas
from flowing out in the open position functions
without restriction.
Pots with a diameter of less than 100 mm (4”) or
more than 320 mm (12 1/2”) should not be used.
When using larger pots, pay attention to keeping to
a minimum distance of 100 mm (4”) between the
cooking vessel and combustible surroundings. A
minimum distance of 15 mm ( 19/32”) must be
observed between the control knob and the pot or
In the event of malfunctions, contact your
specialist dealer or your responsible Gaggenau
after-sales service.
Tip: when buying pots, pay attention to the fact that
the manufacturer frequently specifies the top pot
diameter, which is generally larger than the
diameter of the base.
Observe the manufacturer's specification! Use
cooking utensils that the manufacturer states as
being “suitable for gas".

The appliance features one-hand operation. That is
to say, the ignition is activated when the control
knob is pressed briefly.
After igniting, keep the control knob pressed for
around 5-8 seconds more because the heat sensor
that opens the gas channel has to warm up first.
2.3 Operating principle
The burner has a thermal protection device that
prevents unburned gas from escaping in the open
Level 1
The total rated thermal load amounts to:
17 000 BTU (5.0 kW) referred to Hs* (gross calorific
15 300 BTU (4.5 kW) referred to Hi (calorific value)
The specified rated load is defined by installation
of the fixed nozzles.
The gas hob is converted to a different gas type
by nozzle replacement (full and low-burning
nozzles) (see nozzle table).

– Do not obstruct the flow of combustion and
ventilation air.
– Visually check burner flames with this pictorial
representation (see figure 4).
3. Operation
The cooking positions must only be ignited
when all burner parts are fitted. Otherwise,
malfunctions may occur on the ignition unit.
Switching on (Fig. 5):
– Place a pot or a pan on the corresponding
cooking position.
– Press in the control knob fully and keep it
pressed. This activates the ignition.
– Turn the control knob to the left to the
“high" position.
Fig. 5
If the flame should not ignite within 2 to 4 seconds,
turn the control knob further to the left to the
“low" position and then back to the “high"
position after ignition. It is often faster to ignite in
the low position because the various gases have a
differing ignition response.
Once the flame is burning, keep the control knob
pressed for another 5-8 seconds. The thermal
sensor must be heated for 5-8 seconds before the
knob can be released.
Repeat the operation if the flame should go out
The flame size can be set continuously between full
and low by slowing turning the control knob.
Switching off (Fig. 6):
Fully turn the control knob to the left to the 0
position on the left.

agents (not in a dishwasher!), e.g. with warm
soap solution and a dishwashing brush.
– Whenever required, clean the burner head with
a moist cloth.
– Soak burnt-in remainders in a little water and
detergent. This loosens even the most stubborn
of soiling. Do not use any abrasive agents and
abrasive sponges.
– As the result of heat development, slight discoloration can appear on the stainless steel
surface. Do not attempt to scrape away such
discoloration. This damages the surface.
Distribute stainless steel care agents uniformly
and thinly on the hob (not on the control panel!).
This will ensure an even surface and will keep
your hob in a good condition for a long period of

7. Practical tips
7.1 The wok and accessories
(not included in the scope of delivery)
– The “original wok" is the ideal wok for your gas
– The wok looks like a hollow semisphere with a
long handle or wooden handle. It has a rounded
base and slanted sides. The thin steel passes the
heat swiftly to the inside, but soon cools down
again as soon as the flame is set to a lower
setting. Therefore, ingredients cannot overcook.
– The diameter is between 35 - 40 cm / 14 - 15 3/4”
for 4 persons.
– Woks may consist of various materials. Cast-iron
woks are more stable and keep the heat longer.
– They have a round, high cover. Therefore, they
are also capable of steaming and stewing.
– The semicircular grid is hooked in on the edge of
the wok. On it, you can steam ingredients, you
can allow deep fried foods to drip or you can
keep browned foods warm.
– Use the chan (rounded spatula) or the wooden
pan reversing implement.
– Use a ladle to remove foods.
– Use the strainer to lift deep fried foods from the
fat or large pieces out of a sauce.
– You can use bamboo baskets for steaming.
7.2 Cooking in the wok
You can fry, steam, deep fry, stew and cook normally.
Stir frying is the special cooking method for the
wok. Ingredients cut into small pieces are cooked
as briefly as possible under strong heat and
constant stirring. In the large, round pan everything
can be stirred and turned faster and with greater
ease than in a conventional frying pan. Thanks to
stirring, ingredients do not burn onto the pan.
Surplus oil drains off towards the middle. In next to
no time, you obtain delicious roasted foods, the
pores in meat close and fish becomes nices and
juicy. Vegetables stay crispy, and aromas and
healthy vitamins are retained.
Important: the cooking time is so short that all
ingredients should be ready for cooking before you
begin. The correct sequence is also important. First
place the ingredients with the longest cooking time
in the wok. For example, these are hard-fibred
vegetables such as carrots. Soft vegetables such as
mushrooms or sprouts are added later.
Proceed as follows:
– Pour sufficient oil into the wok to coat the surface.
We advise you to use peanut or or soya oil.
– Heat up the oil to just before the smoking point;
only then begin with stir frying.
– Cut the food into pieces of equal size, but not too
small, thus making sure they will not burn.
– If you are cooking larger quantities, work with
portions as otherwise not all of the food will reach
the hot base of the wok.
– Meals that are ready ca be kept warm on a
minimal flame. Clean the wok after every use and
rub its inside with oil. This will prevent rusting.

(Fig. 15)
Remove the supply line by undoing the union nut 4
(SW 8). Unscrew the injector screw 5 (SW 12) and,
using a small screwdriver, remove the nozzle 6 from
the injector 7. Install the nozzle according to the
new gas type (see data in the nozzle table). To do
this, fit the nozzle 6 on the front of the injector
screw 5 and screw both of them into the injector.
Plug in the supply line and screw it in. Check for
the absence of leaks. Adjust the air gap as detailed
in the table entitled “Air gap for inner burner".

After undoing the screw 2 (7 mm), move the air
regulation sleeve 1 in the direction of the nozzle 3
or away from the nozzle up to a maximum distance
of 12 mm until the flames burn stably and with low
noise. Yellow tips must not be visible in the flames.
The flame must not go off when you switch swiftly
from the high to the low setting. Firmly screw in the
screw 2 again.
See table on Page 12 for details of nozzle settings.

– Produce the recess for one or several Vario
appliance(s) in your worktop. Proceed as
indicated on the installation sketch and the
dimension table. The dimension table contains
details of the space requirement for the trim
between the appliances.
Important: the angle between the cut surface
and the worktop must amount to 90° (Fig. 18).
– Mark the centre of the recess exactly. Secure
the securing rails on the front and rear edges of
the recess. Make sure that the lugs of the securing
rails lie on the worktop and that the centre
marking of the securing rails is precisely flush
with the centre marking on the worktop (Fig. 19).
Secure the cover on the appliance before
installation. See assembly instructions
VD 201-010.

– Lower the appliance into the worktop. Make
sure that the engaging lugs on the appliance lie
exactly on the clamping springs. Press the
appliance firmly into the worktop. The engaging
lugs on the appliance “snap" into the clamping
springs (Fig. 20).
Note: When installing the appliance in granite or
marble worktops, have the holes produced by a
specialist or stick on the securing rails with a
temperature-resistant 2-component adhesive (metal
on stone).

Several appliances can also be installed in
individual recesses, as long as a minimum
clearance of 40 mm (19/16”) is kept to between
the appliances.
