Gaggenau Supports an Odor-Free Kitchen
The Vario 400 does not require a traditional hood and can be set against a wall or in an island.
The Gaggenau Vario 400 Series Downdraft ventilation system draws cooking odors from the countertop to keep the kitchen free of strong smells. The Vario 400 uses an air-quality sensor that automatically detects odors and steam and extracts them from the air. The sensor’s intuitive design enables it to self-regulate while the cooktop is in operation.
Gaggenau’s system operates with minimal noise, thanks to its metal ducting accessories and high-quality blowers that optimize airflow and control sound. The appliance housing is made from anodized aluminum and cleans easily with a sponge.
The unit’s seven-layer metal grease filter is easily removable for cleaning and is dishwasher safe. Two ergonomic handles and a guided exit prevent oil from spilling during removal.
The Vario 400’s also integrates with Home Connect to monitor filter saturation and adjust the sensor when needed. The system sends a notification when the filter needs to be cleaned or reset.
The Vario 400 does not require a traditional hood and can be set against a wall or in an island. The unit can be designed for a flush or surface-mounted installation.
The ventilation system works seamlessly with cooktops from the same series, which support Teppan Yaki, gas, wok, electric grill and induction cooking methods.
