Wolf Induction Hobs

"Produce! Produce!
Were it but the pitifullest infintesimal fraction
of a product, produce it in God's name!
'Tis the utmost thou hast in thee: out with it, then."

—Thomas Carlyle

General Wolf Information

Wolf is positioned far upscale in the appliances market, though what one buys above the norm—especially in something as basic as an induction cooktop, with essentially no moving parts—is less than clear (except, of course, bragging rights). Wolf is now owned by Sub-Zero, another very upscale brand (that specializes, obviously from the name, in refrigeration equipment), and has moved from its former focus on profesional equipment to residential units.

(components made by "Jaeger Hilite", presumably Jaeger Controls of France)

Note that we can sell Wolf products only for delivery within a small radius of the supplying retailer!

Moreover, retailers are not allowed to post prices for Wolf units on the internet: you must make an inquiry to receive a price quotation. Presumably, that is to emphasize the concept that Wolf is for the "if you have to ask how much it costs, you can't afford it" crowd, as perhaps it is. Equally presumed is that the regionality exclusiveness is to prevent—gasp!—competitive pricing. If you want to buy a Wolf anyway, here are their products.


Wolf Induction-Unit Data

As always in these listings, we give these standard general—

Important notes on these data:

  1. We have spent a lot of time hunting these data--often in several places for each individual unit--but we cannot and do not guarantee any datum to be correct (indeed, we often found conflicting data at different sources). Caveat emptor!

  2. For those units we offer for sale, the prices shown are never over a day old. For other items, the prices shown are the lowest we found with moderate but not fanatic searching; moreover, they are not updated very often and are only intended as a rough guide to comparative unit values in cost/power terms.

  3. Most "Features" are not terribly important, and are nearly standard among roughly similar units, regardless of brand name. If some "feature"--shown or omitted--is especially important to you, check on it, because we did not take great pains over the "Features" data.

  4. Dimensions given here are, as the makers themselves warn, only to be used as guidelines in planning--never do anything (such as cutting a countertop) till you have your actual unit to hand.

  5. A very important unit datum is the "MaxPower" value. Many units show individual-element powers that add up to impressive totals that the unit cannot really supply. That is not a defect or some form of cheating: it is "power sharing", a clever and useful feature; but, unless the maker is unusually open about data, one can easily be misled into believeing that the unit as a whole is more powerful than it is. Your dollars are buying cooking power, and you need to be well aware of just what you are paying for in actual cost/power terms for the unit as a whole.

  6. Similar to power sharing (though less flexible) is the "power boost" feature many units have on some or all of their elements. (That feature allows a "boosted" element to temporarily, for some short period--rarely specified, but typically 10 minutes or so--run at some set level well over its nominal power, to help with tasks like getting large pots of water to boiling.) As with true power sharing, if one is not careful, one can get an incorrect impression of the true total power capability of the unit as a whole, which, as we just said, is basically what your dollars are buying.

(For much fuller information on power, read our page Kitchen Electricity 101.)



Cooktops

We found 7 Wolf induction-cooking induction-cooking models (counting trim variants). Note that in Wolf's nomenclature system, a "C" designates their "Contemporary" style line, while a "T" designates a unit in their "Transitional" style line. Further, an "F" in the model number indicates a "framed" unit that can be grouped with other modules also so designated. So far as we can see, the difference between the "/B" and the "/S" designations is the basence (B) or presence (S) of stainless-steel trim. Note that a "T/S" model will not have trim identical to a "TF/S" model.

Ranges

We found 4 Wolf induction-topped range models (counting trim variants); they come in two pairs, the first being the usual 30 inches wide, the second being a still-unusual (for induction-topped units) 36 inches wide. Each pair comprises one each of what Wolf calls a "Professional" styled unit and a "Transitional" styled unit (which seem to differ solely in the oven-door handle's styling).
