Gaggenau launches new flush 200 series oven at Living Kitchen in Cologne

Gaggenau’s new 200 Series ovens are designed to be as one with their surroundings

German appliance brand Gaggenau has traditionally been all about standing out. The high-end appliances are instantly recognisable and – in the case of its ovens – have literally stood out, with a protruding front that makes it a key feature of any kitchen it is specified for.

At Living Kitchen in Cologne last month, the company launched its new 200 Series ovens, designed to be built-in flush with their surroundings. Available in Gaggenau anthracite, metallic or silver, the range consists of ovens, Combi-steam and steam ovens, Combi-microwave ovens, microwaves, espresso machines and warming drawers.

The 60cm wide appliances all come with full glass fronts and with doors that open up to an angle of 110 degrees. Available from March 2013, all ovens in the 200 Series also feature TFT touch display with two rotary controls knobs to operate the key functions.

Also unveiled at Living Kitchen was the new 400 Series, featuring handleless doors and panel-free glass-fronted surfaces as well as the control module with TFT display which can be positioned either at the top or the bottom of the appliance according to the kitchen design. They are available in 76 or 60cm-wide sizes and are built in a distinctive overhang of 47mm at the front.
