Product Details

Gaggeneau 36" Ultra Slim Electric Cooktop - CE490612

The sleek design of Gaggenau’s CE 490 electric cooktop does double duty in the kitchen, adhering to Gaggenau’s credo of timeless, modern design while offering the output levels of Gaggenau’s traditionally sized electric cooktop. At just over a foot deep, the CE 490 electric cooktop creates a new vision for the kitchen and opens up valuable counter space.


  • Twist-Pad control The manoeuvrable magnetic knob on the Twist-Pad simplifies control of the cooking zone: To activate, move knob in direction of the cooking zone; then turn to select desired cooking level. LED displays in the cooking zone indicate the selected level. The magnet always brings the knob back into its resting position in the middle of the Twist-Pad. For easy cleaning of the smooth cooking zone, the knob can simply be removed. The main switch and additional functions such as timer, memory cooking or boosting are activated through touch keys.
  • Automatic quick boil Any chosen cooking level is briefly increased by four levels. The appliance automatically switches back to the set continued cooking level after approximately four minutes. The time can be set individually in the options menu, e.g. when using pots and pans with different degrees of thickness. This function does not involve a power increase in comparison with the maximum level, but reliably prevents boiling over.
  • Electronic precision temperature control A light touch of the sensor button is enough to switch on one or more cooking zones and select the desired power setting. This provides ideal conditions for cooking dishes or recipes for which temperature settings are crucial, as no temperature peaks are reached.
  • Automatic cooking timer The required time for automatic shut-off on of one or several cooking zones can be chosen up to 90 minutes. You can also use the integrated time as a short-term reminder independently of functioning the appliance.
  • Memory function All settings and timer values are stored for a few seconds after the cooktop is switched off, so that if the appliance is switched off unintentionally, all previously entered values are restored.
  • Safety lock After running for four hours, the appliance automatically switches itself off if it receives no operator commands during this time.
  • Child lock Activated through Twist-Pad control by removing the magnetic knob.
  • Residual heat indication All cooking zones of Gaggenau glass ceramic electric cooktops feature their own individual residual heat indication. This safety facility signals whenever cooking zones are still radiating residual heat after use.
