At a Glance:
One of the first things to learn as you shop for kitchen appliances is that not all brands cater to the same market. While it is possible to find a cooktop for less than $500, these are usually entry-level products that only offer basic features. As you explore different brands, you will see that some companies offer high-end options with powerful products and diverse features. Wolf is one of these brands.
Investing in a Wolf cooktop means buying a quality appliance that will last for multiple decades. A Wolf cooktop is designed for home cooks but utilizes restaurant-quality materials and design elements. Simply put, most other brands can’t hold a candle to the type of Wolf cooktop products on the market.

Wolf® 36" Stainless Steel Professional Gas Cooktop
This model is a great place to start if you are looking to replace your existing gas cooktop. There are five total burners that are each controlled by the iconic red knobs on the right side of the stove. You no longer have to reach over hot pans or take a step back to access front-aligned knobs whenever you need to control your heat.
The burners can reach up to 12,000 BTU and then reduce down to a barely-there flame. The main benefit of cooking with gas is that the temperature changes immediately and the heat is gone the second you turn off the stove. If the flame goes out – or if you need to switch from melting butter to cooking over a powerful wok – you can use the spark ignition system to relight your burners and ramp up the power again.
This wolf gas cooktop is designed to match similar products by this line, along with Sub-Zero and Cove. You can choose this model to refurnish your kitchen and enjoy all of the power that comes with cooking over gas. The cast-iron grates highlight the quality of the product and make it easy for you to move pots and pans across the surface.

Wolf® 36" Black Contemporary Electric Cooktop
Not all houses have gas hook-ups and some people simply prefer to cook on electric burners. Electric cooktops create less waste than gas burners and modern technology makes them just as effective. Wolf works to create powerful burners that heat up quickly and cook down immediately after they are switched off.
This model has five different burning zones that come in a variety of sizes. You can heat up a delicate sauce on the smallest burning while a large pot boils away next to it. Four of the elements have a True Simmer setting that will maintain the temperature within your pot – preventing milk from curdling or sauces from breaking.
There is also an exclusive melt setting that delicately increases the temperature of whatever you are trying to cook. This is perfect for melting chocolate and sugar work.
The wide variety of features highlights how this is an electric cooktop made for people who want to elevate the cooking experience. You can put your cooktop to the test and see how it performs compared to the standard models you are used to.
Wolf® 24" Stainless Steel Transitional Induction Cooktop
If you are looking for the most advanced option in cooking technology, you need an induction stove. Rather than creating a hot surface where you can place your pots and pans, induction cooking uses magnets to heat up your cookware instead. As soon as you turn off the induction heating element, it will be cool to the touch. Induction cooking is also more energy-efficient and faster, so you can spend less time cooking and more time eating.
This wolf induction cooktop has three different cooking elements in different sizes. It is ideal for smaller kitchens without much space. However, just because the induction cooktop isn’t wide doesn’t mean it can’t handle large pots and other cookware. The three heating elements are large enough to handle major pots and pans.
The black ceramic glass surface is easy to clean and scratch-resistant. You can comfortably slide your pans around the top without damaging the induction system. When your pots overboil, clean-up is a breeze. You can simply wipe away any spills with a damp cloth and your cooktop will look as good as new.

Wolf® 15" Stainless Steel Transitional Electric Steamer Module Cooktop
One of the best parts of shopping for Wolf products is that you can find items that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to buy from mid-range brands. This is because Wolf caters to customers who can customize their kitchens based on their specific needs.
This electric steamer is a perfect example of a unique appliance that you will love to have in your home. Not only is it useful for steaming food, but you can also use this piece as a slow cooker, bread-proving drawer, and warming pan. If you have guests over for a buffet dinner, this module can hold almost anything and keep it warm. Your friends will think you hired a professional caterer when really you created restaurant-quality meals yourself.
When you are done with this module, click the “Drain” button. It will completely remove the liquid from the space within two minutes. This way you don’t have to pick up the module and carry it to the sink, which could be a hot experience.
This is the type of electric cooktop that you don’t know you need until you have it. Once you add this item to your home, you might be surprised by how often you use it and how many types of dishes it can help you prepare.
What is special about a Wolf range?
Wolf kitchen appliances are designed to last more than 20 years, which is longer than most brands can promise. A Wolf cooktop is special because it heats up quickly when you need it and cools rapidly when not in use. There are also special features that allow you to better control the temperature settings, which are ideal for delicate dishes and sides.
Is Wolf a high-end appliance?
Yes. Wolf is considered a luxury appliance brand. You can expect to pay between $5,000 to $15,000 for Wolf products depending on what you are buying. However, many people feel like the investment is worth the cost because of the durability of the items.
Is Viking or Wolf better?
Both Viking and Wolf offer high-quality appliances that are made with restaurant-grade materials. You can choose which one is better for your own personal needs. Look at cooktops that match your ideal size and power source to compare your options. Then see which features align with your goals.
