Why does the wine cooler feature two temperature zones?
The two cooling zones are vertically adjustable and can be set to two different precise temperatures suitable for white and red wine, respectively. Available temperatures range from 5 to 18°C.
Why do I need the Indoor Ice System (IDI)?
The IDI is a convenient way of dispensing ice cubes, ice chips and ice water. The sensor-controlled ice cube maker automatically provides the correct amount. The IDI is integrated into the fridge door instead of the freezer, which means you gain 20% of freezer space.
How are creases reduced?
Applying steam makes the textile fibres smooth, causing creases to unfold. Clothing is smoothed out using a combination of its own weight and a gentle stream of air.
Can body odour also be removed from fabrics?
Yes, in principle, body odour can also be removed from fabrics. It should be kept in mind, however, that body odour is produced to help remove bacteria. Since sweat is unique to each individual, the treatment result may differ from person to person. We recommend washing sweaty clothes.
Can rain-soaked clothes also be dried?
Yes, wet clothes can easily be dried again in next to no time using the additional drying programme.
What types of range hoods are there?
There are different solutions to suit you – whether you want your range hood to be an eye-catching design feature or for it to be discreetly integrated into your kitchen. On the wall If you want to make your range hood stand out, then a wall hood is a great choice. Wall hoods are also available as slanted versions which provide ample headroom. They are installed on the wall directly above the hob. Integrated into the kitchen units If you would rather incorporate the hood into the kitchen so that it is virtually invisible, then we recommend a built-in range hood with a glass canopy, a flat-panel range hood or an integrated range hood. These are perfect for kitchens in which you need to make clever use of the space. On the ceiling Range hoods designed for ceiling installation are the perfect solution in open-plan kitchens that feature a free-standing cooking island. Choose your favourites from our elegant ceiling range hoods and our wide range of attractive island hoods. Downdraft or in the hob itself Without long detours, cooking vapours are whisked away at the very place where they first develop – on the hob itself. Our integrated hob hood, the pull-out downdraft and the induction hob with integrated range hood offer increased headroom and extract the vapours downwards.
Is it a good idea to install a sound absorber with a wall/island hood or built-in range hood?
Yes, we would definitely recommend installing a sound absorber to reduce the overall noise emissions. In extracted air mode, both the fan noise going outside and the outdoor noise coming inside via the extracted air duct can be reduced. In the case of recirculation mode, the sound absorber is positioned directly on the fan nozzle in the hood flue.
What does the energy efficiency category say about a range hood?
The energy efficiency category helps you to understand a range hood’s energy consumption and to compare it to others. Since the start of 2020, products have been given a rating on a scale of A+++ to D. The most energy-efficient V-ZUG range hoods are in efficiency category A++.
Does the hob ventilation/hob hood ventilation also work with taller pots?
Cooking vapours can be extracted without any problems in the case of pots up to 20 cm tall. For pots that are over 21 cm tall, we recommend placing the pot lid at an angle in order to direct the steam towards the range hood.
Where can I find the planning information for range hoods?
You can find detailed planning information in our planning guide. For more advanced range hood topics and advice about what to consider during the planning stage, please refer to our TechInfo.
What do I need to bear in mind in terms of Minergie construction?
In principle, all variants (exhaust air and/or recirculated air) are permissible for range hoods in Minergie residential buildings. Detailed information on this topic can be found at: https://www.minergie.ch.
Does every hob work with OptiLink?
To fully enjoy OptiLink, both the hob and the hood must be equipped with the OptiLink function. Look out for the "Fan wheel with chain links" symbol in the "Equipment and operating modes" section.
How many hobs can I connect to a range hood via Bluetooth?
Up to three hobs at the same time.
What makes the extractor hoods particularly user-friendly?
We recommend conveying the extracted air outside wherever possible, as this carries smells away from the kitchen. The most effective solution is to use an exhaust system (duct) with a diameter of 150 mm.
Should I leave the windows and doors open or closed when using the range hood?
Range hoods need enough replacement air to guarantee optimum extraction performance. You can ensure this by opening a window or incorporating a replacement air unit. If there is insufficient replacement air, this can create negative pressure (a vacuum) – the range hood will become significantly louder and it will have difficulty conveying the cooking odours outside.
Do I need to air the room when I use my range hood?
You should always ensure there is a supply of replacement air when the range hood is running. In the case of a recirculation air range hood, this enables air that is still moist after passing through the filters to be replaced. In extracted air solutions, an open window helps to optimise the air flow and prevents negative pressure building up in the kitchen.
Can I switch off/suppress the automatic light activation if I don’t really need a light above the cooking area?
For safety reasons, we recommend that the cooking area is always well lit.
Can I adjust the reaction times for the hob and range hood in OptiLink operating mode?
Three levels are available in OptiLink mode that vary in terms of their reaction times and the maximum possible power level. Level 1: Silent mode – reaction time 60 seconds and maximum power level 2 Level 2: Standard mode – reaction time 45 seconds and maximum power level 3 Level 3: Intensive mode – reaction time 20 seconds and maximum power level Intensive You can easily select whichever operating mode you want. When the appliance is switched off, press the "Light" and "Automatic run-on" buttons at the same time. The operating mode that is currently selected will be shown on the power level display. You can change the operating mode by pressing the power button. The selected setting will be saved 5 seconds after the last input.
Is it still necessary to soak encrusted gratin dishes and fondue pans in water over night?
The fondue/raclette programme provides a remedy for this. Caquelons and raclette pans become perfectly clean without soaking. The programme is also suitable as a "super intensive programme" thanks to the active softening phase. Pre-rinsing burnt gratin dishes is a thing of the past thanks to this world first from V-ZUG.
What is the ClickShelf system?
Our new CombiCooler generation offers an innovative ClickShelf rack system, which allows you to adjust the height of your racks easily with one hand and make full use of the width at the front when storing your food.
What is the purpose of the bottle drawer with removable drinks basket?
This additional cooling zone offers storage room for beverages at a pleasant drinking temperature. The extractable bottle drawer running on rails is particularly convenient. It contains a removable basket with space for six bottles. Its somewhat higher temperature makes this bottom compartment ideal for cold-sensitive food such as potatoes and exotic fruit.
How has the use of energy in our dishwashers developed over time?
In the standard programme, our heat pump device uses a record low of 0.55 kWh of energy. 20 years ago, this figure would have been four times as great, with dishwashers using 2 kWh of energy.
What is the capacity of a dishwasher?
Dishwasher capacity is given in the form of place settings, which constitute a standardised value. A place setting comprises a certain number of plates, glasses, cups, cutlery, bowls and other items. Our dishwashers are able to accommodate between 12 and 14 place settings depending on the model.
When is it worthwhile installing an extra-high dishwasher?
An extra-high model offers space for plates with a diameter of 33cm. This means that an extra-high dishwasher makes sense if you want to use it for large plates, tall wine glasses or baking trays.
How exactly does the automatic programme work?
The automatic programme is capable of detecting what your dirty dishes need, thereby reducing the consumption of water, electricity and dishwater salt by up to 30%. The programme also works out how long the washing cycle needs to last. This could be anywhere between 50 and 85 minutes.
What exactly is a water hardness controller?
The water hardness controller ensures that the water always has the ideal hardness. This makes the detergent more effective and ensures that the dishes and glasses are treated gently.
How does inverter technology contribute to gentle cooking?
Our exclusive inverter technology steplessly adjusts the oven's output to the amount of energy actually required. This means your microwave consumes less energy, at the same time cooking your food as gently as possible.
What is the function of the Favorites button?
This enables you to select your favourite cooking programme by pushing a single button. Save the settings for your favourite programme, such as heating a mug of milk in the morning, and all you have to do is put the milk in the microwave and push the button.
What is the purpose of the hot air function in a microwave oven?
You can use your microwave in combined mode to prepare a gratin, lasagne, cake or baked potatoes, or bake bread and puff pastry using only the hot air mode. The possibilities are endless. Compared to a regular oven, meals in microwaves take only two-thirds to half the time in combined mode.
Can long-stemmed glasses still be placed in the upper basket if the cutlery drawer is used?
Yes, the cutlery drawer is designed so that the right-hand external wing can be retracted sideways, meaning that long-stemmed glasses can still be placed in the upper basket below.
What is the difference between the Party programme and the Sprint programme?
The Sprint programme lasts 20 minutes and is suitable for quickly cleaning lightly soiled pre-dinner glasses. The Party programme lasts 11 minutes and is perfect for when an exceptionally large number of dishes need to be washed quickly ready to be used again – for example, a party with many guests. When using the party programme, the dishwasher starts with a 20-minute heating phase, after which the dishwasher can be fully loaded up to five times in a row.
My dishes are still not clean when they come out of the dishwasher – what can I do?
There are a number of reasons for unsatisfactory cleaning results. The most common are listed below: - Too many dishes are packed too closely together in the dishwasher, preventing the water jets from the spray nozzles from reaching every part of the dishes and resulting in spray shadows. Spray shadows are surfaces on dishes that have been missed by the water jet and are therefore not cleaned. - The dishwasher's spray arms are blocked, meaning that the water spray pressure is too low for proper cleaning. In this case, you can simply remove the spray arms (see the operating instructions) and clean the nozzles under the tap. - Select the RinsePlus user setting on the dishwasher. RinsePlus increases the amount of water and extends the programme duration.
My dishes are still damp when they come out of the dishwasher – what can I do?
- You need to increase the amount of rinse aid in the user settings (ex-works level 4). This will increase the level of rinse agent used in the rinsing process, thereby improving the dryness. - Select the DryPlus user setting on the dishwasher. DryPlus increases the temperature during final rinsing and extends the programme duration.
Is there a very quiet programme?
Specifically designed with night-time usage in mind, the Silent programme emits no noise at all. During the night, the programme can last longer, but needs to be as quiet as possible – which is exactly what the Silent programme offers.
Do dishwashers also have sprint programmes?
Extremely fast programmes are offered at each convenience level. These programmes last between 11 and 30 minutes depending on the convenience level.
What do I need to consider when using a sprint programme?
Sprint programmes are suitable for lightly soiled pre-dinner or coffee dishes. Sprint programmes are not suitable for normally or heavily soiled plates/pans and other items. If you use tabs, we recommend that you select the All in 1 function in the user settings. The All in 1 function extends very fast programmes, meaning that the tabs are able to dissolve and achieve their full cleaning effect.
Does the dishwasher have load detection?
The dishwasher uses sophisticated technology to measure the amount of water which is drained from the dishwasher before flowing back into the water cycle via the drum floor. If little water flows back, the dishwasher recognises that it has a full load. The opposite happens when the dishwasher only has a light load. In this case, a large amount of water flows back into the system and the amount of water is adjusted automatically. This enables the dishwasher to save up to 1.5 litres of water for each main programme selected.
Can I wash my drinking and wine glasses together with other crockery and cookware?
When buying glasses, please check to make sure that they are dishwasher-safe. Also note the information provided by the manufacturer of the glasses or ask the sales personnel. Glasses that are marked as dishwasher-safe can be washed with other crockery in the dishwasher without further thought. Higher temperatures are not a problem for such glasses, as they are manufactured to high standards of quality. As part of the daily use of your glasses, we recommend washing them along with your other crockery and cookware using the automatic programme.
Can you install an extra-high dishwasher under any circumstances?
Theoretically yes. Please discuss this option with your specialist dealer.
What is the best way of stowing large or unwieldy cutlery?
If you often clean ladles, wooden spoons, whisks or long meat knives in the dishwasher, we recommend using our Vario cutlery basket insert. The Vario cutlery basket insert is already included as standard in our SL models, but can also be bought as an optional accessory for our models in the N and S lines. The Vario cutlery basket insert can also be retrofitted to older appliances.
I would like to use dishwasher tabs. Is there anything in particular that I need to consider?
All-in-1 tabs consist of pressed amounts of powder/rinse agent and salt. Because the substances are pressed, they cannot dissolve quickly enough to achieve their full cleaning effect when used in fast programmes. The amounts of rinse aid and salt are also not enough to achieve the best possible cleaning result. This is why it is essential to add additional salt and rinse aid to the dishwasher! V-ZUG's dishwashers are equipped with the All in 1 function, which can be used with tabs of any kind. You can activate this function for any V-ZUG dishwasher via the user settings. With this function, the dishwasher automatically extends the programme duration by a maximum of 10 minutes for very short programmes, and extends the final drying time by a maximum of 15 minutes. This enables the tabs to dissolve and achieve their full cleaning effect. The All in 1 function also automatically adjusts the use of salt and rinse aid, reducing it by 50 %, and guarantees excellent cleaning and drying results every time!
How can I make sure that vases and decanters are placed safely?
Thanks to the four included Easy pin extenders, large dishes such as vases, decanters, tall beer glasses or baby bottles are just as safe in the upper rack as in the lower rack.
I want to make use of times with low electricity rates. Can I set the dishwasher to run during the night?
The delayed start function makes it easy to take advantage of low night electricity rates. What's more, the appliance remembers the time it was set to on the previous occasion, and with a mere 42dB(A), our dishwashers know how to keep their noise down. You won't hear a thing.
I don’t always have enough dirty dishes to load the dishwasher completely. What would you recommend?
Part load – the programme adapts to smaller loads. Far less water is consumed, with a saving of between 1 and 6 litres. The programme runtime is reduced by up to 30 minutes.
I don't always have enough dirty dishes to load the dishwasher completely. What would you recommend?
The «Upper rack» only function makes a ZUG dishwasher even more flexible and will save 2.6 litres of water, depending on the wash programme.
How much water is used in a dishwasher during a wash cycle compared to a hand wash?
When washing items by hand, around 40 litres of water must be heated up. With V-ZUG's best appliances, this figure is reduced by almost 90 %, with the Adora SL requiring just 5 litres of water.
How much water does a dishwasher consume compared to doing the dishes by hand?
A dishwasher is such a valuable domestic helper that you can hardly imagine life without it. In recent years, dishwasher's water and energy consumption has been significantly reduced. This means that having an appliance clean the dishes is no longer just a time saver. Today, it is also much more economical and better for the environment than doing the dishes by hand. To clean the amount of dishes a ZUG Adora tackles in a single wash cycle, you would consume up to 40 litres of water, while the Adora manages with just 12.
Do I still need to add salt to the dishwasher if I am using all-in-1 tabs?
Yes, absolutely! The salt is needed to regenerate the dishwasher's integrated softening unit. The softening unit descales the water that flows through the dishwasher. If the water is not descaled, limescale builds up on the integrated components in the dishwasher. The all-in-1 tabs only soften the water which enters the dishwasher when a programme is selected. This is only partly effective, as each tab contains only a limited amount of salt.
Do I still need to add a rinse aid to the dishwasher if I am using all-in-1 tabs?
Yes, absolutely. For optimum cleaning and drying results, we always recommend adding rinse aid to the dishwasher. The amount of rinse aid in the tabs is not sufficient to achieve optimum drying results.
Can I also connect the dishwasher to a hot water supply?
You can set up our dishwashers for use with hot water. To do this, you will need to select the hot water function in the user settings. The dishwasher will now work in an operating mode adapted for use with hot water.
What should I do if an error message such as A1 appears on the display?
Please first check the operating instructions to see if the solution is given there. If not, please call our free service number on 0800 850 850.
Can I also put wine glasses in the lower basket?
Yes, you can use the lower basket glass compartment to put wine glasses in the lower basket. The glass compartment can easily be placed in the lower basket and can hold several wine glasses, drinking glasses and cups. You can order the glass compartment as an accessory set from our online shop.
Can I put all dishes in the dishwasher?
We recommend the following: Not all dishes are suitable for cleaning in a dishwasher. - Wash items made of wood or plastic that are sensitive to alkalis or heat by hand. - Earthenware tends to crack and splinter. - Glass and porcelain prints are only resistant to a limited extent and may dissolve over time. - Glass can become cloudy depending on the type and the detergent used. Check with your glass supplier whether the glass is dishwasher-safe. - Tension may develop in polished and thick-walled crystal glasses and bowls, which may lead to breakages. - Do not wash dishes with stickers. Dissolved stickers can block the filter system. - Objects made of silver, copper and tin tend to stain brown or black. - Aluminium tends to form stains. Wash aluminium separately or by hand.
What kind of design is recommended? Should I choose a framed hob or one that is flush with the worktop?
This is primarily an aesthetic question, but also depends on the kind of worktop you have. Flush hobs are mainly installed with stone worktops. However, make sure that the hob can be accessed from underneath the worktop.
How does induction conserve energy?
Induction is the technology of the future: it is faster and more energy-efficient. One litre of water is brought to the boil in approximately two minutes. This is made possible by smart technology. Induction generates heat exactly where it is needed in the base of the pan. The glass around the heated cooking zone stays virtually cold, so no energy is wasted. An induction stove uses up to 40% less energy compared to other heating methods.
Induction hobs offer pan detection. How does this work?
Have you ever turned your stove on by accident or forgotten to turn off the heat? Now this not a problem any more. Pan detection ensures that the stove generates heat only when a pan is placed on the hob. A timer-controlled safety shut-off monitors each cooking zone and turns it off after a certain period. And if you have some aspiring junior chefs in your family, use the childproof lock to prevent accidents.
Induction hobs offer a PowerPlus function. What is it for?
The PowerPlus function offered by almost all induction hobs helps you save time. If, for example, you need to heat up a large quantity of water, you can have a cooking zone work at an increased power level of up to 140%. PowerPlus puts up to 3700 watts at your disposal.
The cooking zones are operated by innovative slider controls. How do they work?
This slider concept makes cooking even more fun: adjust the heat levels by sliding your finger over the controls.
What exactly is a Teppan Yaki designed for?
Professional caterers have been raving about it, and you can have it in your own kitchen: a Teppan Yaki. Why is this Japanese method of cooking on a flat grilling surface so popular? Because you don't need any pots and pans, it's entertaining for your guests to watch, and you don't have to worry about choosing the right cooking temperature and time. The cooking temperature, for example, can be set precisely according to the kind of food youre preparing, and it stay at a constant level, no matter how many delicacies you pile onto the griddle. This ensures heat sensitive food is cooked particularly gently so that its taste, quality and nutrients are perfectly preserved. A Teppan Yaki will turn your dinner parties into an unforgettable experience.
What different kinds of hobs are available?
There are radiant hobs, which are controlled via a stove or switch box (formerly Quicklight). By contrast, autarkic radiant hobs (formerly Toptronic) and induction hobs feature controls situated directly on the glass surface. The space saved in this way can be used by fitting an additional 1/6th drawer. Cooking by forced induction is the nec plus ultra for the chef's home kitchen. The CombiCookTop range (formerly Fusion) includes induction hobs that have an extractor embedded in the hob.
How does cooking with induction work?
Instead of the traditional heating element, an induction coil is placed beneath the glass ceramic hob, generating a varying electromagnetic field. The field generates eddy currents in the base of the pan, which leads to a rapid heating of the magnetic pan material.
Is there a separate cooking zone for fish pans?
Fish pans can be used without difficulty on any cooking hob featuring a frying zone.
What is the purpose of a hob with three cooking zones?
As steamers are becoming increasingly popular, we have found that people tend to use fewer pots and pans in their cooking. This is why we have introduced hobs featuring only three cooking zones that are more generously spaced.
What are the different installation options for hobs?
Hobs that are fitted flush with the worktop achieve perfect aesthetic integration and create the impression of compact simplicity. Hobs with a set-off glass frame (bevel-edged) have a very elegant appearance, while chromium steel frames and over-large frames (for replacements) convince by their simplicity of installation and their classic design, they fit in a wide variety of kitchen combinations.
Do I need to use special pans with an induction appliance? Are they expensive?
For induction to work, the base of the pan must be ferromagnetic. As induction hobs are quite popular, there is a broad range of available well-priced pans.
Are my pans suitable for use with an induction appliance?
Use a magnet to test whether your pans can be used with an induction hob. If the magnet sticks to the base of your pan, you're ready to go, otherwise, the pan will not work with an induction hob.
Are there hob models with an automatic safety shut-off?
Yes, all V-ZUG induction and autarkic radiant hobs are fitted with an automatic safety shut-off that prevents overheating.
Ergonomic cooking is important to me. What do I need to consider?
Make sure the cooking zones are generously spaced so the pans don't touch. We'd recommend a hob with cooking zones in a V- or A-shaped alignment. You might also consider a panorama hob, where the cooking zones are positioned in a single line for easy access.
Are there health risks involved with using induction hobs?
In spite of a great number of studies, scientists so far have found no proof that electromagnetic fields pose any environmental or health risks. Like any domestic appliance, induction hobs generate an electromagnetic field. However, the field is many times less powerful than that generated by an electric razor, a hair dryer or a power drill. To find out more visit www.fea.ch, the website of the Swiss Association of the Domestic Electrical Appliances Industry.
What makes induction hobs so easy to clean?
Induction hobs are impressively fast. They react quickly and are finely adjustable, which means liquids will rarely boil over, if ever. As the heat is generated in the base of the pan only, the glass around the cooking zone is hardly warmed up at all. Therefore spilt food won't burn and the hob can be cleaned easily with a damp cloth.
How do you clean the hob?
Slight soiling can be removed with a smooth cloth and a little detergent. To tackle heavy dirt, apply glass ceramic cleaning agent with a sponge, leave it on for a few minutes and then remove it with a cloth. Encrusted dirt can be removed with a hob scraper.
What is the purpose of the NoFrost technology built into FoodCenter models?
NoFrost technology means you'll never have to manually defrost your fridge again. All of our FoodCenter models are fitted with NoFrost technology, which means they defrost automatically at regular intervals.
Which colours are available for refrigerator front panels?
The refrigerators can be supplied with White or Nero fronts. It is also possible to attach your own fronting in order to integrate the refrigerator into your kitchen.
How effectively are creases removed?
The extent to which creases are removed very much depends on the type of fabric, as the fibre types all behave differently. Creases in textiles made from cotton and polyester fabric blends or wool, for instance, can be removed significantly more effectively than those in textiles made from linen, cotton or silk. A superior crease removal effect can also be achieved with cotton shirts labelled as "anti-crease" or "easy-care".
Is an artificial odour applied to the fabric during the refresh programme?
No – the photocatalysis process only removes odours and does not apply odorous or odour-masking substances to the fabric. A cupboard deodoriser can be used to match the scent to your liking.
Can all textiles be refreshed in the RefreshButler?
Virtually all of them – but we advise against using the RefreshButler on water-sensitive fabrics such as fur or leather.
How does the RefreshButler dry the clothes?
The integrated heat pump and the ventilation system blow warm air into the interior and whisk away the humid air.
When does the water tank need to be filled or emptied?
We recommend filling the fresh water tank at the start of each programme and emptying both tanks at the end of each programme.The appliance automatically detects and notifies you when the condensation tank is full or the fresh water tank is empty.
Is it possible to use an extracted air or a recirculation air solution in conjunction with the Fusion hob with integrated range hood?
Yes it is – the unit can be installed with either an extracted air or a recirculation air solution.
Does the screen need to be pulled out on a built-in range hood for OptiLink to work?
The screen must always be pulled out to ensure the range hood can work at its best.
What is the best way to keep vegetables fresh?
The 0°C zone (at high humidity) provides the ideal climate to double the storage time of fresh vegetables, salad and herbs.
What is the energy saving potential of a modern refrigerator?
Under the new energy efficiency rating system, which comes into force on 1 March 2021, our CombiCoolers are in energy efficiency class C. This makes them our most energy-efficient refrigerators. Their long operating life also helps to save operating costs and resources.
What exactly is dynamic circulation cooling?
Dynamic circulation cooling ensures an even distribution and circulation of cool air in a large cooling space. This means more flexibility in placing food in the cooling space, as well as shorter cooling times.
What is the difference between integrated and fully integrated dishwashers?
With integrated dishwashers, the operating panel is visible. This is particularly useful for ChromeClass/AluClass models, as they also function as design elements. In contrast, design-integrated models feature a mirrored operating panel that fits perfectly with the FutureLine design. A wood panel the colour of your kitchen is fixed below the operating panel. With fully integrated dishwashers, the operating panel is concealed. Only when you open the appliance, you'll find it integrated in the door's upper edge.
What are the different installation options for dishwashers?
Dishwashers with a customisable design have an operating panel in the same colour as the design elements. With integrated dishwashers, the operating panel is visible and the lower part of the appliance adopts the colour of your kitchen. Fully integrated dishwashers feature an entire front in your kitchen's colour.
How long does the shortest wash programme last?
If you're in a hurry, for example during a party, the Adora SL's sprint programme will clean your dishes in just 19 minutes. And when we say clean, we mean spick and span.
Would you recommend installing a dishwasher in an elevated position?
If there is sufficient space in a tall cabinet, an elevated position can be very useful as there is no need to bend down in order to load and empty the dishwasher. Just remember that the maximum length of the armoured hose is three metres.
Where can I install the new CoffeeCenter V6000 45?
An automatic built-in coffee machine that is built into the kitchen front not only makes for an aesthetically pleasing solution that looks the part, but it also frees up worktop space. TheCoffeeCenter V6000 45 in the new Excellence Line design is built into tall cabinets, allowing it to blend in seamlessly with other thermal appliances in this new generation.
Am I tied to a particular type of coffee with the V-ZUG automatic built-in coffee machine?
The CoffeeCenter V6000 45 uses coffee beans, which means you are free to explore the fascinating world of coffee to your heart’s content.
What does it take to make a good cup of coffee?
In addition to the quality of the beans and the blend, the correct grinding technique is especially important: the more evenly the coffee is ground and dosed, the better the end result. This is where the CoffeeCenter V6000 45 comes in with its innovative new cone grinder that conjures up an aroma intensity unlike anything you have ever experienced before. The perfect temperature and pressure during the brewing process are also crucial when it comes to how the coffee will taste. From ristretto, espresso, espresso macchiato, doppio, cappuccino, flat white, caffè latte and latte macchiato to the latest trends like long coffee, the CoffeeCenter V6000 45 provides the perfectly brewed cup of coffee to suit anyone’s tastes. The integrated milk frother automatically prepares three different levels of froth, depending on whether you are making cappuccino, latte macchiato or caffè latte. The heated milk container is double-walled and keeps the milk fresh for a long time.
Why is the grinding so important for a perfect cup of coffee?
Apart from the quality of the coffee beans and the blend, the right grinding technique is crucial. The more evenly the coffee is ground and dosed, the better the result. The highly innovative new ceramic grinder of the Supremo SL meets these requirements and is extremely durable. And it has another great benefit: it is very quiet.
What is the purpose of the hot water and steam nozzle?
The nozzle produces hot water for tea and other hot drinks. It also lets you conveniently froth cold milk for a delicious cappuccino or hot chocolate.
What is V-ZUG TopClean?
This is the most high-tech solution of all the cleaning aids. The specially developed enamel coating makes cleaning the cooking chamber or baking trays even easier. Its excellent non-stick properties allow all residue to be removed simply and effortlessly with a damp cloth.
How does pyrolytic self-cleaning work?
Ovens with pyrolytic features practically clean themselves: Dirt is converted into ash by the special pyrolytic self-cleaning programme, which heats the cooking chamber to extremely high temperatures. The ash can then be wiped away with a damp cloth. Pyrolytic self-cleaning is available as an option in all appliances in convenience level V4000 or above.
Are appliances with AutoDoor a safety risk for unsupervised children?
No. If the appliance door reaches its stopping point or encounters resistance, movement is stopped. The appliance door is uncoupled from the drive at a certain angle and can be moved freely. If an appliance door with AutoDoor is stopped manually, you must press the button again or close the appliance door manually to reset it.
How do I open the door of an AutoDoor appliance in the event of a power cut?
The appliance door can always be opened by hand or by using a wooden spoon. The best way to do this is to hold the corners of the glass front and open the door by hand.
Is there a safer and more convenient way of removing the baking trays from the baking or cooking chambers?
The optional fully extending runner allows you to remove up to three baking trays safely and conveniently from the baking chamber. This is particularly practical when basting a piece of meat or for removing biscuits or a flan from the baking tray.
Is there not a risk of burning yourself on the door front?
All appliances are guaranteed to have low external door temperatures. In the case of normal ovens and steamers, a triple-layer glass door ensures safe operation while cooking. Pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens actually have a four-layer glass door concept. Thanks to the innovative door concept in the Advanced and Excellence Line, the door is ventilated with air from the room, thereby keeping the temperature of the outer door lower than it is for the standard models. What’s more, active appliance door ventilation also enables lower outer door temperatures for pyrolytic self-cleaning appliances.
What is the difference between an oven and a cooker?
A cooker is always installed underneath the worktop and has switches that allow the hob to be controlled. The oven is usually installed at eye level in a tall unit. This makes operation more convenient and ergonomic.
