Much of what today's households take for granted was originally developed by Gaggenau. Gaggenau has been a home appliance pioneer and the leading innovator in technology and design "made in Germany." No other manufacturer's inventions have so often and so sustainably revolutionized private kitchens and set new trends. Gaggenau's success is founded on technological innovation and a clear design language combined with high functionality.
Gaggenau's leadership is underscored by the more than 300 patents it has been awarded over its successful history. Not only was the development of the built-in oven heavily influenced by Gaggenau – its best-known innovations also include the glass-ceramic cooktop, the pyrolytic self-cleaning oven, the combi-steam oven for the home and the Vario cooling 400 series, the modular system that made the world's first "refrigeration wall" possible.
