The Vario downdraft ventilation with the VL041 control unit and the VL040 expansion element is integrated as a ventilation element in the worktop alongside the Vario 200 series cooktops. With this highly efficient ventilation solution directly at the cooktop, steam and odors are extracted to the outside particularly effectively.
