Wolf Cooktop Product Line


Wolf offers electric, induction and gas cooktops.  The electric cooktop models are offered with cooking rings in three sizes: 15-inch, 30-inch and 36-inch. Typically, residential usage is for the smaller ring sizes, however, the 30 and 36-inch rings are typically used by commercial establishments such as restaurants and hotels.  


Wolf’s electrical cooktops are finished with attractive stainless steel trim with three heating elements and seven cooking zones, making it easy to have multiple pots and pans going at the same time. The Wolf True Simmer feature and a separate heating element can be allocated solely to the defrosting of frozen food.

Another handy Wolf feature is a lock mode that will shield all elements from turning on and comes with timer that is adjustable for sound and frequency.


Every aspiring chef has his or her personal preference of electric over gas or induction. In the case of electric cooktops, Wolf claims that one of the most beneficial features of their electric cooktops is that heat transference between source and cooking receptacle is direct heat transference resulting in truer temperatures.


When installing a Wolf electrical cooktop it is important to remember that to ensure a safe cooking environment that the cooktop must be powered by a separate grounded three-wire connection.


Fans of gas cooktops are not bothered by the fact that when using a gas cooktop that heat can escape from the sides of causing more head concentration at the center of the pot or pan and less heat at the outer edges.

Wolf Induction Cooktops


Similar to the Wolf electric cooktops, Wolf offers induction cooktops in the same 15, 30 and 36-inch sizes. Popular in Europe, Wolf’s induction cooktops are gaining in popularity in North America due to their 90% plus energy efficiency rating.


A favorite Wolf induction cooktop is the scratch-resistant, 30-inch black ceramic glass model with True Simmer settings on two elements and defrost settings for the other two elements. Families like the Wolf induction cooktop for its safety features to keep little fingers and hands safe. The Wolf induction cooktop comes with a temperature regulator and hot-surface light.
