Gaggenau unveils its 200 and 400 series culinary warming drawers – perfect for those with a passion for gastronomy
London, September 2022: Gaggenau, the luxury professional-grade home appliance brand, has long worked closely with renowned chefs to bring the precision of the professional kitchen to the domestic space. The tradition now continues with the launch of the upgraded 200 and 400 series culinary warming drawers. These expertly crafted and meticulously engineered appliances offer the home chef all the functionality a professional would expect, opening up a world of convenience when entertaining.
Warming drawers have always been popular with chefs involved with large-scale gatherings. The reason is simple: keeping culinary delights ready to eat, and plates, servers and cups warm means everyone can stay calm during preparation and dinner. Now, Gaggenau is introducing home chefs to the multipurpose benefits of a culinary warming drawer. However, the sophisticated 200 and 400 series models can do so much more than warming.
Both models have finely tuned temperature controls that can be adjusted in 10°c increments, adding functionality to an already versatile appliance. Bakers can use their drawer to prove dough in ideal conditions, for example, while home chefs who like to plan ahead can use theirs to slow cook casserole or ragu to delicious perfection. Equally, for those in need of a late-night supper, drawers can be used to heat leftovers.
Each culinary warming drawer is controlled via a sleek touch panel revealed when the drawer opens. Its design means you can set the temperature yourself or choose from four preinstalled programs with pre-set temperatures: slow cooking, food warming, heating of cups and heating of plates.
Gaggenau has channelled its technical expertise into ensuring the culinary warming drawers slot perfectly into a smart kitchen. For example, via the Home Connect app, you can do practical tasks such as setting a timer to end a program or add a favourite setting to the drawer’s control panel. The app also offers access to additional programs and exclusive recipes so you can unlock even more of the drawers’ culinary capabilities.
Exceptionally crafted, the warming drawers are designed to complete the Gaggenau kitchen. They can either be placed under an oven, combi-steam oven or microwave, or combined in a bank of appliances with two drawers for the ultimate in flexibility. Equally, they can be installed separately so they are placed exactly where you need them. For example, the 140mm drawer is compact enough to slot under a worktop so you might site one in an island close to where you serve up. Alternatively, a drawer adjacent to the coffee machine will ensure warmed cups are always conveniently to hand.
The drawers are available in a choice of finishes designed to sit alongside other Gaggenau appliances. In addition, they can be clad in kitchen furniture fascias to integrate seamlessly with the cabinetry.
Simon Plumbridge, Gaggenau category manager said, “We’re delighted to launch the upgraded Gaggenau 200 and 400 series warming drawers. Meticulously engineered and incredibly versatile, the drawers are a refined statement of minimalist style and bring multipurpose convenience to the modern kitchen. Whether they’re used to preheat a dinner for guests or to slow cook for tender results, the warming drawers will delight keen chefs with a true passion for gastronomy.”
The Gaggenau 400 series and 200 series culinary warming drawers are available in two heights: 140mm and 290mm. Prices available on application.
