To those who say that you cannot have the best of two worlds in the kitchen (gas and induction), Gaggenau says “Yes, you can” with the gas cooktop VG425211CA of the Vario 400 series. This cooktop with two burners can certainly become the best ally of your induction cooktop.
The reason is very simple, its compact size and capacity, along with its high safety standards and ease of cleaning turn it into the best companion you can ask for that beautiful induction cooktop, so you’ll be competing with other family members for it.
Small but powerful
The first thing that will surprise you is that the VG425211CA Vario 400 cooktop has a two-ring burner, one of which provides a power of up to 13,600 BTU. These are subject to a full electronic power regulation on their 12 levels, in addition to the fact that their gas valves are completely electronic, which means that those blue flames that some enthusiastic cooks love so much, have precise and reproducible power.
With automatic quick ignition, this cooktop features electronic flame monitoring with automatic re-ignition. In addition, it has a simmering function to cook at a very low output level. In other words, it’s the modern version of a gas cooktop with nothing to envy to the induction one.
And if none of the above surprises you, then let us tell you that it comes with a residual heat indicator and a safety lock. What do you think?
Simple and durable design
Made of stainless-steel, its design of simple lines will fit to perfection into any kitchen style. Its cast-iron pan support with flat, continuous pot surface and brass burner rings will guarantee that no matter how much time the stew needs to be cooked for, this cooktop will do the job.
As we already stated, this Gaggenau appliance has two burners. A high-performance main burner of two rings (perfect for pots up to 11″) and variable power of 570–13,600 BTU, and the standard output burner of two rings whose power can reach up to 6,800 BTU, which will turn it into your best ally when it comes to making those complicated and tasty dishes your grandmother used to make.
The operation of this cooktop is very simple. The cooktop VG425211CA from the Vario 400 series comes with illuminated ring control knobs for cooking zone and output level markings.
So, having the best of two worlds is possible. Well, at least in the kitchen and with Gaggenau.
