  • Independently Set Hinged Heating Elements
  • The two grill heating elements can be set independently.
  • This means that while the front part of the grill is being used for grilling, the rear part can be used for keeping food warm.
  • To clean the cooktop, simply swivel both heating elements out of the way.
  • The Vario 400 Pro Series open grill grate has concealed heating elements.
  • This ensures that very little smoke is produced, as fat cannot drip onto them.
  • Cast Iron Griddle
  • This is an extremely useful, easy-care accessory for grilling or cooking on a flat surface.
  • Three of its sides are high and effectively protect against fat splashes, and the front edge curves slightly upwards to prevent spillage of fat and deposits of burnt food.
  • Stainless Steel Container with Lava Stones
  • The floor of the lava stone container is perforated, allowing fat to drip into the pullout collection tray.
  • The tray is removable and dishwasher-safe.
  • Appliance Cover
  • Stainless steel protective cover that can be closed when the appliance is not in use.
  • Vacation Lock
  • After running for four hours, the appliance automatically switches itself off if it receives no operator commands during this time.
  • Control Knobs
  • All Series 400 control knobs are designed to prevent unintentional activation of the appliance, because they need to be both pressed and rotated.
  • Before a knob can be turned, it must be pushed through a clearly felt stop position.
  • The temperature selection knobs on electrical appliances may then be turned in either direction, even past the zero position.
  • The setting selected for a cooking zone via a particular knob position is then retained.
  • A discreet circular orange light indicates active cooking zones.
  • In gas appliances, rotation of the knob is limited to one direction; illumination of the ring is not possible.
  • Automatic Cooking Timer (Optional)
  • The time at which you desire one or more cooking zones to be switched off automatically can be selected up to 90 (CK) or 99 (VI) minutes in advance.
  • The integral clock can be used as a timer independently of the function set for the appliance.
  • "Personalize Your Custom Cooktop"
  • Allows specialty pieces to be combined with gas and electric units.
  • Connecting Strips Give Finished Look and Design
