Why is Wolf the Top Name in Luxury Ranges?


A gleaming stainless steel Wolf range, with its iconic red knobs, is considered the top choice for homeowners yearning for a luxury range. There are so many reasons Wolf has topped the list of luxury ranges for designers, discerning homeowners and chefs outfitting their own home kitchens. Whether you are considering a gas, dual fuel or induction range, Wolf offers industry-leading features and benefits that make cooking a pleasure.

A Wolf dual-fuel luxury range combines patented dual-stacked, sealed burners with the consistence performance of Wolf’s Dual Vertiflow™ convection ovens.

Beyond BTUs – Precision, Power and Finesse

The key to the perfect meal is precise control, and it’s what sets Wolf luxury ranges apart. While many brands boast about their BTUs (which stands for British Thermal Units, a standard measurement of heat output), Wolf ranges are engineered to provide power and responsive, precise control. Wolf’s legendary dual-stacked, sealed gas burners provide the best of both worlds.

Wolf’s dual-stacked, sealed gas burners provide unparalleled power and control whether you are looking for a low simmer or a powerful boil.

The “dual stack” refers to two precise levels of flame – you essentially get two burners in one.  The burners on a Wolf luxury range can provide an extremely low simmer level (think melting chocolate without burning it or simmering a sauce for hours without concern.)  In addition, the same Wolf burner can offer a powerful 20,000 BTU flame that brings water to a boil quickly…and everything in between. The precision and finesse of these burners is the key to stovetop success and the “sealed” feature means cleaning is a breeze.

Wolf’s VertiFlow convection ovens provide 10 cooking modes and a convection system that provides even heat, reduces hot and cold spots and enables consistent multi-wrack cooking. 

Exclusive Dual VertiFlow™ Convection Ovens

Wolf is also the only company to offer the Dual VertiFlow™ convection system, which provides reliably even heat, reduces hot and cold spots and enables consistent multi-rack cooking. These superior ovens offer 10 cooking modes, including Bake, Broil, Convection, Convection Roast, Dehydrate, Gourmet, Proof, Roast, Stone and Warm, all developed by Wolf chefs to maximize the performance of your oven. The Gourmet Mode alone features nearly 50 presets that automatically control the oven to ensure delicious results. On the touchscreen, you simply enter the type of food you are cooking, and the oven guides you through the steps to a perfect meal. No more cookbooks or online tutorials, your Wolf oven will do everything for you!

Wolf luxury ranges feature porcelain-coated cast iron grates that sit on silicone feet, and allow you to customize your rangetop with traditional burners, indoor grill, griddle, French Top or a Wok for versatile cooking.

Luxury is Found in the Details

Terms like “professional grade” or “commercial range” are bandied about in the kitchen appliance industry, but a close look at something as simple as the grates on a range will help tell the story. The quality of the grate above the burners can be an indication of the dedication to quality throughout the appliance. Each Wolf gas and dual-fuel luxury range includes porcelain-coated cast iron grates that sit on small silicon feet. The grates are designed so you can slide pots and pans from burner to burner with ease during cooking. This simple feature makes a world of difference when you need to move elements of your meal on and off heat at different times. You’re not limited by just four or six burners. Depending on the Wolf model you select, you can customize your cooking surface with traditional burners alongside an indoor grill, griddle, French Top or Wok on your rangetop. Consider your favorite foods and cooking experiences and you can customize your Wolf luxury range to deliver them.

Don’t like the red knobs on a Wolf range? No problem, you can select red, black or silver to create your look.

 Not a Fan of the Red Knobs?

 While Wolf’s red knobs are considered by many to be a signature of culinary prowess, there are designers and homeowners who are looking for a more subdued or sleek look across the front of their luxury range. No problem! Wolf offers all of the great features and benefits with black or stainless steel knobs. This means you enjoy all the culinary benefits with a custom look to fit your kitchen design.

Today’s homeowners want luxury and energy efficiency, and the Wolf luxury induction range delivers both.

Best of Both Worlds – Wolf Induction Luxury Range

The masterminds who originally brought Wolf ranges out of restaurant kitchens into home kitchens across the U.S., have now created an even more innovative luxury range: the Wolf Induction Range. This model replaces the gas cooktop with the world’s most advanced induction cooktop technology and mates it up with Wolf’s industry-leading Dual VertiFlow™ convection oven.  This luxury range provides the best of both worlds for those homeowners looking to reduce their reliability on natural gas. This stunning appliance offers the same precision and performance found in Wolf’s Gas Luxury Range while providing an even more energy-efficient alternative.


A Wolf luxury range is designed to make a statement in any style kitchen, with various sizes and configurations.

Decades of Dependability Means Greater Home Value

 The manufacturers of Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances know that you are making an investment in your home and lifestyle. Justifiably, homeowners expect these luxury ranges to last for many years. Wolf ranges are rigorously stress-tested to perform for over 20 years of daily use and are backed by the strongest warranty in the industry. According to Forbes magazine, “Given the primary role the kitchen plays in the home, as a place to prepare meals, gather with family and the room that will sell the home faster and for more money, perhaps no kitchen appliance has more of that cache than Sub-Zero and its sister brands, Wolf for cooking and the Cove dishwasher brand.”
