There will also be a new size, 27”, which was brought into the lineup for direct replacement business to compete with other professional brands that offer this size. This will only be available in the M series transitional design lineup. It will have a 4.5 cubic foot capacity and will be available in both a single and double oven.

The 36” L series single oven has also been redesigned in the new M series transitional lineup. This model now features a staggering 6.3 cubic foot capacity, up from 4.4 cubic foot capacity. With the interior features improved with the new Dual VertiCross convection system, this capacity increase was able to be done without any increase to the physical size of the oven.

  1. They have a 27 inch oven, so they have finally entered the replacement market
  2. LCD Interface, so the oven is now (or will be) easy to use like Miele and Jenn-Air
  3. Better, more distinctive appearance
  4. Improved convection system

These changes have been designed to improve cooking performance, a more uniform appearance throughout the entire cooking product line, and to provide a more user-friendly interface, making it easier to operate the ovens. Pricing has yet to be announced on these new models at the time of writing. The Wolf product line is considered THE brand in residential cooking appliances.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
