Description
Vario 36" Induction Cooktop - 400 Series
VI 491
Accurate, fast cooking with low energy consumption. The VI 491 induction cooktop is equipped with five cooking zones, including a three-ring zone with a diameter of 12.6 inches (32 cm) for maximum flexibility when using different sizes of pots and pans. Each cooking zone can be individually enhanced with the booster function, which temporarily increases the power by up to 50 percent, making it ideal for intensive searing or super-fast heating.

With the new Vario 400 Series modular cooktops, multiple solutions are available to fit each individual's taste. For the first time ever, the grill, Teppan Yaki, steamer or deep fryer can be freely be combined with induction or gas cooktops in 15" and 36" widths to create a beautifully-styled unit.

The new Vario 400 Series can be surface or flush mounted thanks to the precision crafting of 1/8" stainless steel.

Overhead hood, retractable AL 400 or VL 414 downdraft ventilation may be used with the Vario 400 Series.
