When considering a dual fuel range, none surpass the performance of Wolf. Wolf’s professional heritage, stunning aesthetic, and innovative performance comes together in this one extraordinary appliance. On the top you find patented dual-stacked, sealed gas burners and below you enjoy Wolf’s Dual Vertiflow™ convection electric ovens with Gourmet Modes. Whether you want the largest range – their 60-inch dual fuel range model – or have only 30 inches in your kitchen for this appliance, you will enjoy the best of both worlds: gas cooking on top and incredibly energy-efficient and precise electric ovens below.
Dual Fuel Range Sizes Dictate Number of Ovens and Burners
Dual fuel ranges from Wolf offer many options. The most traditional range would be a 30- or 36-inch range, with a single high-performance Dual Vertiflow oven and four gas burners. The 36-inch model is most popular for those simply replacing a range, as the measurements allow this dual fuel range to slide right in where the previous stove was located. Once you move up to a 48- or 60-inch model, then you will have two ovens in your range. You will also enjoy and a wide array of cooktop configurations combining four to eight gas burners in combination with an Infrared Char broiler, Infrared Griddle or French Top.
What’s the benefit of dual-stacked gas burners?
Only Wolf offers dual-stacked, sealed gas burners. They provide consistently high-to-low temperature control. Spanning 300 to 20,000 Btu, these burners deliver steady, true simmers and melts, as well as fast boils and powerful sears. This is the kind of control you need to create the most delicate sauces and put a delicious finish on your fish or meat. The “sealed” feature means that clean-up is a breeze. Wolf’s seamless burner pans easily wipe clean.
Configure your dual fuel rangetop as you please.
Planning your rangetop might start with your recipe collection. What would you most like to cook? If you select a 60-inch range, with Wolf you can customize the rangetop with the adjustable infrared charbroiler, redesigned infrared single or dual griddle, French top and up to six dual-stacked, sealed burners. This model features two electric Dual VertiFlow convection ovens below. Some cooks prefer all burners and this choice allows for easy sliding of pots and pans across the whole surface.
An iconic 36-inch dual fuel range is a handsome appliance.
Cooking with six gas burners is one way of thinking about a 36-inch dual fuel range top. With Wolf, you could also remove two burners and replace that center section with an infrared charbroiler or infrared griddle. Your choice here may be dictated most by your favorite foods The adjustable 16,000 Btu infrared charbroiler features a high and low setting, aptly handling a range of foods from steaks and burgers to delicate fish fillets and vegetables. The 15,000 Btu griddle features even, precise heat, handling breakfast (delicious pancakes, bacon, omelets anyone?) with just as much finesse as seared burgers and stir-fried vegetables.
The marriage of electric and gas cooking in small spaces…
When shopping for a dual fuel range, you don’t have to sacrifice performance when you have small space. Wolf’s 30-inch dual fuel range is the smallest model, perfect for condos, cottages and smaller homes. The four burners on this model include 9,200 Btu, 15,000 Btu, 18,000 Btu and a 20,000 Btu, so you are still in control of your cooking surface with unparalleled performance and easy-to-clean burner pans. And if a flame goes out, there is a spark ignition system that reignites the burner automatically. So, experiment away!
Wolf ovens offer features like no other.
While the rangetop configurations on a Wolf dual fuel range seem exciting, Wolf’s ovens are really the stars of the show. The Dual VertiFlow convection system provides reliably even heat, reduces hot and cold spots, and enables consistent multi-rack cooking. You’ll never find another oven like this. Wolf’s exclusive Gourmet Modes feature nearly 50 presets that automatically control the oven to ensure delicious results. Ten cooking modes, including Bake, Broil, Convection, Convection Roast, Dehydrate, Gourmet, Proof, Roast, Stone and Warm, were developed by Wolf chefs to maximize the performance of your oven. The full-color touch screen is intuitive and easy to read, discreetly hiding away when not in use. The oven also offers self-clean, delayed start, timed cook and Sabbath features. And it is Wi-Fi enabled to allow you to remotely preheat, select modes and adjust oven temperatures from your mobile device. In the 30-inch and 36-inch ranges, you will have one oven and in the 48-inch and 60-inch models, you will enjoy two convection ovens.
Red is not your only option.
While Wolf is known for their iconic red knobs, they don’t fit everyone’s aesthetic. So, you can also choose black, gray, brushed stainless, or brushed brass knobs. You can also customize the bezel, which is the metal ring around the knob. You can match the knob color and bezel (brushed stainless or brushed brass on both can create a dramatic look in many kitchens) or you can mix finishes with a black knob and silver bezel. No matter the color you choose, your dual fuel knobs will feature Wolf’s new halo light, which back lights any knob that is in use. This new special safety feature is a clear way to remind you which burners you have on.
