One of the most common questions we get when looking at cooking products is “what is the difference?”.

Wolf is one of the premium brands that we carry, with 12 all gas and 14 dual fuel (gas top electric oven) models. Well look at Wolf and compare their models to see what the differences actually are.

Wolf was a large manufacturer of commercial cooking products. In 2000 they were purchased by the leader in residential refrigeration, Sub-Zero. Now the premium refrigeration manufacturer has also become the premium professional range manufacturer.

They offer a lot of options in the pro range line, but it is not as confusing as you may think. We will look at the all gas models first.

Wolf All Gas Professional Range Models

There are 12 all gas models in widths from 30 to 60 inches. All models feature a dual stacked burner. The lower portion of the burner is used for low temperature cooking and simmering. The upper level is used for higher output cooking and searing. Burner outputs will range from 9,500 to 15,000 btu’s.

All of the ovens feature an infrared broiler with an ultrafast pre-heat. The gas models also have a single fan convection system for more even, consistent, and faster cooking. Some available accessories include a bake stone and full extension ball bearing oven racks. The gas models are not self-cleaning. The reason for the number of models would be the cooktop configurations, from 4 burners to 8 burners, charbroilers, griddles, and a French Top.

Pricing for the all gas models will be $4,569 to $12,599 and must be ordered specifically in natural gas or LP.

Here are the gas models below:

Wolf Dual Fuel Professional Range Models

There are 14(!) dual fuel models in the Wolf lineup. There are significant differences between the gas and dual fuel.

Dual fuel ranges will have an electric oven and gas cooktop, the advantage being the control of the gas on the top, and the more even temperature in the electric oven. In a natural gas or LP oven the temperature will fluctuate. The electric will maintain a more consistent temperature providing more even results.

These dual fuel ranges have the same dual stacked burners, 9,200 to 15,000 btu’s. The dual fuel models are self-cleaning (the gas are not), have a dual fan convection system, and electronic oven control panel. That electronic panel will enable them to offer 10 pre-programmed cooking modes including dehydrate and bake stone (accessories for both required) and a temperature probe for meats and poultry.

Dual fuel prices range from $5,999 to $15,949.

Summary

There is a flush “island trim”, 5 or 10 inch backguards, or a 20 inch backguard with a shelf. The bezels around the knobs can be stainless, brass or chrome. You can also choose a knob color: Black, stainless, or the signature Wolf red.

Whether you choose the gas or dual fuel, Wolf has a pro range for just about any need you can imagine. They are good quality, reliable and a great overall choice.

WHY SHOULD YOU TRUST US?

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.
