Product Details

Gaggenau Vario Stainless Steel Downdraft Ventilation System - VL041714

Only 3-3/8 inches wide, the VL 041 downdraft ventilation system for the Vario 200 series is revolutionary and typically Gaggenau. A controlling element (VL 041), and an additional element (VL 040, without control switch) can be mounted on the left and right of a built-in cooktop, or between two modular cooktops. This installation configuration allows vapors to be directly extracted from the cooking surface. The value of this direct ventilation is apparent, especially with the electric grill/deep fryer combination, where there is an extremely large amount of vapor. The downdraft is an ideal problem solver, especially under support beams or with cooktops directly under a window. A duct leads the vapor and odors to be extracted directly to the outside. The fan motor may be installed in the bottom cupboard but will also mount elsewhere if desired to virtually eliminate fan noise from the kitchen. A metal filter absorbs the grease extracted by the system and is dishwaher safe for easy cleaning.
