Designer: Gaggenau

Gaggenau’s longstanding commitment to innovation and visually pleasing aesthetics has consistently elevated its status in the world of kitchen appliances. The Essential Induction, part of the 400 series cooktops, presents a range of sizes from 38 cm to one meter, tailored for spacious kitchens, granting architects the freedom to express their creative vision. The solid stainless steel illuminated control knobs can be vertically mounted, and the flexible Vario options empower users to craft a bespoke cooktop that aligns with individual preferences.

At the core of the Essential Induction’s design philosophy lies the concept of quiet luxury. When not in use, the cooking zone seamlessly transforms into a multifunctional stone surface, maintaining a sleek and minimalist appearance. The absence of visible cooking zones or frames enables seamless integration into any living space, erasing the traditional boundaries between living areas and food preparation.

This induction marks a departure from conventional kitchen layouts, encouraging a more fluid and interactive cooking experience. Gaggenau’s design team observed a shift in user behavior, with individuals instinctively arranging ingredients and utensils around the pot, fostering a natural and enjoyable cooking process.

Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, the induction almost vanishes into a Dekton worktop when switched off, leaving only the front-mounted knobs in stainless steel or black as evidence of its presence. When in use, The knobs glow and a discreet LED dot guides users on where to place their pan for optimal heating, enhancing both safety and efficiency.

The seamless integration of Essential Induction into the Dekton worktop is made possible by the remarkable properties of Dekton, a durable material from Cosentino. Composed of ultra-compact mineral particles, Dekton offers resistance to heat, stains, and scratches, making it an ideal choice for architects designing kitchen countertops.

Beneath the Dekton surface, Gaggenau employs high-performance induction modules in two sizes, accommodating pots and pans up to 21 cm or 28 cm. The modules are activated through magnetic surface protectors, ensuring a secure grip on cookware while safeguarding the worktop from scratches and dampening sounds. The control knobs provide users with Gaggenau’s signature precision and speed, offering 12 power levels, a keep-warm function, and a boost for added convenience.

In the realm of kitchen appliances, Gaggenau’s Essential Induction stands as a testament to the philosophy that less is more. By seamlessly integrating into the living space, this cooktop not only enhances the aesthetics of the kitchen but also transforms the cooking experience into a joyous and liberating activity. Gaggenau’s Essential Induction is not just a kitchen appliance; it is a celebration of minimalism, innovation, and the pursuit of culinary perfection.
