A success story
Gaggenau is a small village in the Murgtal Valley, at the foot of the Black Forest. It's here that the company Gaggenau is founded in 1683 as an ironworks by Margrave Ludwig Wilhelm von Baden (1655–1707). He uses the iron ore deposits in the Murgtal Valley to open up new sources of income for the impoverished farmers, thus laying the foundation for the success story of the brand.
With the ongoing industrialisation, a new chapter in the story of "Eisenwerke Gaggenau AG" begins. With a still small number of factory workers, the company manufactures agricultural machinery, metalware and tools.
of our experience.
As a specialist in enamel, Gaggenau produces advertising signs for brands such as Odol, Maggi and Stollwerck. The recipe for the company's robust oven enamel forms the basis for the success of its coal and gas-fired stoves, which continue to be manufactured until well into the 20th century.
Moving with the times.
The product range adapts to the new century. Gaggenau takes on a pioneering role with a range of innovative products, including coal and gas-fired stoves, but also bicycles. By 1908, Gaggenau has sold a total of 250,000 "Badenia" bicycles.
Dawn of the labour-saving
When Dr. Otto von Blanquet takes over the reins, the company shifts its focus to coal and gas-fired stoves and produces its first electric stoves, making cooking safer and more convenient.
a reliable currency.
Success proves Gaggenau's undoing: In 1944, almost all its locations are destroyed by bombing. Following the currency reform, Gaggenau begins to produce innovative ovens, which are very economical in the burning of natural gas and coal. Electric ovens are also manufactured for the first time, with 180 employees involved in producing the "Favorit" and "Futura" models.
The advent of
Georg von Blanquet becomes a driving force in the company. Inspired by his passion for cooking, he is fascinated by the then revolutionary idea of a custom-designed fitted kitchen with sophisticated appliances in a timeless design. In the same year, the world's first built-in appliances appear - a built-in eye level oven, a separate cooktop and the first ventilation appliance.
Forerunner of a
Gaggenau presents the first 28 cm wide Vario cooktops with top-mounted control knobs - a forerunner of the now classic advanced Vario cooktops series with perfectly specialised and combinable appliances.
The first 90 cm wide oven to reach the European market is bound to impress: with a generous net volume of 87 litres and space for up to four roasts at a time. The EB 300 soon achieves cult status.
The Vario cooktops 300 series with 38 cm wide appliances and the characteristic front-mounted control knobs bring a piece of professional kitchens into private homes.
Inspired by generously-dimensioned freestanding American fridge-freezer combinations, the Side-by-Side IK 300 is launched featuring separate access to fridge and freezer compartments. In addition to five climate zones and manual humidity control, the appliance boasts a clear ice dispenser.

Gaggenau - Pioneer of healthy eating: The ED 220 steam oven, which is connected to the water supply and outlet, inspires a new trend towards an authentic taste experience based on gentle steam cooking. Asian cuisine in particular has this to thank for its triumph in the Western world.

The Coanda effect: The exclusive Coanda AH 600 hood, or the AW/AI 280 as it is known today, uses findings from aerodynamic research. The unique shape of the ventilation hood leads to the emergence of an additional air current along its front edge that intercepts steam before it has a chance to escape over the edge of the appliance. This ventilation system ensures energy efficiency at reduced noise levels.
The fully integrated IK 360 wine climate and temperature control cabinet with glass doors for the first time ever offers three self-contained and individually controllable climate zones. The temperature can be regulated to the exact degree between 4°C and 21°C.
Professional kitchens with
The first seamless ovens in the ovens 200 series with their characteristic display modules are presented. The appliances come in widths of 60 cm and 76 cm.
The Vario cooling 400 series becomes established in Europe and the US as the first modular system made from fully integrated built-in appliances. Characteristic of the series are its high-quality features with lined stainless steel interiors and energy efficiency class A+.
90 cm wide, flush-mounted and featuring the most modern gas technology: The CG 492 gas cooktop also offers a power output of up to 18 kW for the first time.
and use of space.
With the Vario cooling 200 series, Gaggenau promotes a totally new usage concept - with exterior dimensions that can be integrated in any kitchen and interiors that still offer considerably more space. The A++ energy-rated appliances are also economical in their use of natural resources.
of room ventilation.
Minimalist design offers individual configuration options: The modular AC 402 ceiling ventilation is a flexible solution for efficient room ventilation. Motorless filter modules, control and lighting modules can be integrated inconspicuously in the respective kitchen architecture and are also extremely quiet.
The CX 480 full surface induction cooktop transforms the entire surface into one homogenous cooking zone. Pots and pans of every shape and size can be placed simultaneously at any position on the cooktop, making cooking more relaxed and convenient. Intuitive control is enabled via a large TFT touch display.
Vario cooktops 400 series combines advanced professional-standard technology for private kitchens with sculptural design. For the first time, cooktops with widths of 38 cm to 90 cm can be freely combined. Thanks to precision crafting of the 3 mm stainless steel the appliances can be snugly fitted side-by-side. They are flush-mounted or – to create an intentional effect – surface-mounted with a visible surround.
One family -
For the first time in Gaggenau's history, two new ovens series are to be released at the same time in different designs. The 400 series appliances are installed with a slight overhang while the 200 series appliances are perfectly flush-mounted. Both series equally epitomise the authentic, the uncompromising and the extraordinary.
