WOLF

Chef Nicole in the WOLF Kitchen
at our Framingham Showroom

WOLF is part of Sub-Zero since 2000. They pioneered twin convection in their professional ranges, three stage burners on their cooktops for continuous extra low simmer and of course their iconic red knobs. Their new wall ovens have evolved to a new top down “Verticross” convection system allowing for more space and better heat distribution.

Click below for more information as well as product videos on all WOLF products or links comparing WOLF to their competitors like Thermador, Viking, Jenn-Air and Miele.

Best 30 Inch Professional Gas Ranges (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

Final Thoughts

As I said before, this is a tough choice. If you are using the top cooking surface, look at Jenn-Air or Miele for power or Wolf and Thermador for a better simmer. I like the twin convection of Miele with the clock/timer functionality of Jenn-Air.

Which do you buy?

That really depends on what you like. From a price/feature standpoint, Jenn-Air, Viking and Thermador are great value both with free dishwashers and under $4400.

BTU Output

Jenn-Air is more powerful with two 20,000 BTU outputs and two 15,000. Thermador is all 18,000, Viking has one 18,000 BTU burner and the rest are 15,000. Wolf has all 15,000 BTU burners. Miele is all 19,500 BTU burners.

Jenn-Air also has a better clock and timer mechanism, which is actually a 7-inch LCD screen. Miele has a more basic clock and timer.

Convection

All the ranges offer convection (fan forced heat for more even baking and roasting). Miele and Jenn-Air have twin convection or two fans for even more even baking. I like twin convection in 36 inch ovens, because there is more of a difference in larger cavities.

Still, most 30 inch wall ovens have twin convection, so it is an advantage.

Self-Cleaning

Jenn-Air and Miele are the only companies offering self-cleaning in an all gas model. Every company features self-cleaning in their dual fuel ranges.

Wolf vs. Miele M Series Wall Ovens (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

Final Thoughts

It really depends on what you value. Would you use the steam or do you like the larger oven? Both of these products excel, so there is not a bad choice.

Which do you buy?

It’s tough to choose between the two. Really tough.

Some of the time, the decision between two is influenced by the rest of the appliance order. Wolf is most often is paired with Sub-Zero (their sister company) for promotions. Wolf also offers a 2 year warranty and has more aesthetic options to choose from depending on the overall style of the kitchen.

This new convection system could be great, because it is now larger with better distribution.

Miele, on the other hand, will offer a full line of products and offers a one year warranty. The steam feature, self-cleaning racks, wireless probe, and option for a rotisserie is very appealing. The MasterChef is still state of the art for cooking ease, but its now smaller than Wolf with an older convection system.

It really depends on what you value. Would you use the steam or do you like the larger oven? Both of these products excel, so there is not a bad choice.

Thermador vs. Wolf Gas Cooktops (Reviews/Ratings/Prices)

Final Thoughts

In terms of looks, prestige and feel, I prefer the Wolf. The new updates to the Wolf make it an much more even match than before, but I still give the nod of reliability and performance to Thermador.

Which do you buy?

With such a small difference in price, there isn't a bad choice. Thermador does have a longer history with a better simmer at 200 degrees.

Wolf's knobs on the right make it less likely to bumped by a big pot or pan being put on or away from the cooking surface. The Thermador’s knobs are in the front, which may or may not pose an issue to some cooks.

The Thermador’s range of BTU’s allow the lowest simmer and highest power of the two. Wolf has now updated their hightest output of 15k BTUs to 18k .The Wolf’s grates I feel are heavier and of better quality.

Doing the whole kitchen? Depending on what else may be going into your new or existing kitchen, you could possibly save more. This may also help determine which cooktop is right for you.

Thermador’s current promotion of ONE-TWO-FREE can save you up to $6,097 on a full Thermador kitchen. Pairing up a double wall oven with your new cooktop? Get a free Thermador dishwasher.

Wolf has a similar promotion, where you save $1,000 instantly. Up to $2,500 total when you purchase more appliances.

In terms of looks, prestige and feel, I prefer the Wolf. The new updates to the Wolf make it an much more even match than before, but I still give the nod of reliability and performance to Thermador.
