Vario Downdraft Ventilation - 400 Series
Regardless of whether it is installed with a visible edge or flush-mounted next to the Vario cooking appliances, the VL 414 downdraft ventilation draws steam downwards directly from where it arises. Up to four ventilation elements can be combined with a fan unit, which operates quietly, precisely and efficiently and is controlled conveniently via a single AA490 control knob.
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.
