The Gaggenau Hype A dash of class in the built-in arena The EB 290 ovens -- The EB 200 series ovens are the newest highlight in the Gaggenau portfolio and the latest demonstration of our commitment to innovation in the kitchen. No other appliance series in this class combines so many useful features with such consistent design. High-grade materials like aluminum, porcelain and glass give our appliances an unmistakable profile, while the pure and uncomplicated Gaggenau design - evident in features like the robust new control knobs and large glass front - makes them stylistically neutral and able to fit well into any kitchen cabinetry. The EB 200 makes an equally convincing case on the inside too it has the largest usable baking area of any comparable appliance and is available in different sizes and colors.

The Gaggenau Hype Good things are made under steam, not under pressure The ED 220 combined steam and convection oven -- The new Gaggenau ED 220 combination steam and convection oven is one of the most versatile kitchen appliances ever seen and brings professional kitchen technology into the home. Form follows function the sleek design of the steam oven is award-winning among several Gaggenau products, the ED 220 has been honored in the oldest and most prestigious design competition in the world - the 2002 Good Design Award at the Chicago Athenaeum Museum for Architecture and Design. The CombiSteam system combines the advantages of a steamer and a convection oven in a single unit, as the high temperature ensures a good crust while the added humidity keeps food moist. A revelation from the professional connoisseur, the CombiSteam method opens up another dimension in home cooking. A temperature range of 85 - 450 ºF and five graduated humidity settings (100%, 80%, 60%,.30% or convection only) allow you to select precisely the cooking conditions you need. The difference is plain to see, but the real reward comes when you take the first bite. Meat and fish retain all their flavorsome juices, poultry skin browns and crisps without drying, and vegetables can be prepared soft or crunchy as desired without losing their color or valuable vitamins. You can enjoy all the benefits of CombiSteam cooking without even changing your cooking habits; life in the kitchen will be faster and easier. The ED 220 gives you increased flexibility too with such advanced culinary technology at your disposal, you can cook when it suits you and reheat and serve as required with no loss of flavor or moisture. Good taste was never so easily demonstrated.
