IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS
GENERAL SAFETY REQUIREMENTS
• When deep fat frying, be certain that the pan is large
enough to accommodate the desired volume of food
without overflow caused by bubbling of the fat.
Never leave a deep fat fryer unattended. Avoid deep
fat frying of moist or frost-covered foods, as foods
with high water content may cause spattering or
spilling of the hot fat. Heat fat slowly, and stir
together any combinations of oils and fats prior to
applying heat. Utilize a deep fat frying thermometer
to avoid heating the fat to temperatures above the
flash point.
• Always use dry pot holders when removing pans
from the rangetop. Wet or damp pot holders can
cause steam burns. Do not use a towel or bulky
cloth in place of pot holders.
• Choose pans with easily grasped handles that will
stay cool while cooking. Refer to cookware selection
on page 21.
• Always turn panhandles inward so they do not
extend over adjacent work areas, burners or the
edge of the rangetop.
• Always check the positions of the control knobs to
make certain the rangetop is off when you are
finished cooking.
• Always light each burner prior to placing a pan on
the burner grate. Also, turn the control knob to the
OFF position before removing a pan from the burner
grate.
• Keep any ventilation filters clean to avoid grease
fires.
• Always set pans gently onto the grates and center
them so that they are well balanced.
• Start the ventilation hood approximately five minutes
before cooking. This establishes an air curtain and
improves the capture of vapor and moisture.
• Clean only those parts listed in this guide.

Surface Burners
A spark electrode ignites each surface burner. This control
eliminates the need for continuous open flame pilots. For
added safety and convenience, each burner is designed
with an electronic reignition system. This feature enables
any burner to relight automatically in the event it is accidentally extinguished.
GRATE PLACEMENT
Position the porcelain-coated, cast iron burner grates with
the five fingers of each grate facing toward the front of the
gas range. The back of each grate has three fingers. Refer
to the illustration below.
BURNER ASSEMBLY
After removing burner parts for cleaning, it is important
that you reassemble the burners correctly. Refer to the
illustrations below for proper alignment of the base and
upper burner parts. The center burner cap does not have
a special orientation but should be seated flat.
Failure to position the burner parts correctly could
cause flames or gas to escape and burn between
parts, resulting in poor combustion or damage to your
gas rangetop.

CONTROL KNOBS
FLAME HEIGHT AND APPEARANCE
The control knobs are positioned to correspond to the
surface burners they regulate. Each knob is designed as
a push-to-turn knob. Even though this is a child-safe
design, children should never be left unattended near the
rangetop while it is in use.
Select a flame that is just high enough to maintain the
desired cooking speed and is sized to fit the base
diameter of the pan. Never extend the flame beyond the
base of the pan. Refer to the illustrations below.
To light a surface burner, push in and turn the control knob
counterclockwise to HIGH. You will hear a clicking sound.
This is the electronic igniter. Once the burner is lit,
continue turning the knob counterclockwise to the desired
setting. There are four settings—HIGH, MED (medium),
LOW and SIM (simmer). You will feel a slight detent in the
knob rotation when each setting is aligned.
A natural gas flame should be blue with a deeper blue
core. There should be minimal trace of a yellow flame. A
yellow flame indicates an improper mixture of air and gas
or impurities in the gas supply to the range. If this occurs
consistently, call a Wolf authorized service center to adjust
the mixture. With LP gas, some yellow tipping to the flame
is acceptable and may not require adjustment.
A “popping” sound may be noticed with LP gas when the
surface burner is turned off. This is normal.
MANUAL LIGHTING
In case of a power outage, you can relight the surface
burners manually. Turn the control knob to HIGH, then
light the burner using a BBQ lighter. Refer to the illustration below.

BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
Before using for the first time, you should clean your
rangetop thoroughly with hot water and a mild detergent.
Rinse and dry with a soft cloth. This removes any residual
oil and grease left on the surface from the manufacturing
process. Refer to care recommendations on pages 19–20.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Before using your gas rangetop,
check that the surface burners are assembled correctly.
The optional griddle and French top need to go through a
“burn in” period to clean oils from the bottom of these
assemblies. To prevent food from sticking and to protect
the surface from moisture, it is necessary to season the
griddle and French top prior to use. Refer to the following
pages for specific instructions on using the optional
charbroiler, griddle and French top.
The use of proper cookware is very important. Refer to
cookware selection on page 21 for recommendations.
Gas Rangetop Operation

Infrared Charbroiler
The optional charbroiler has an infrared burner to give the
most efficient method of gas grilling. The burner becomes
an orange-red color at the surface of the ceramic tile.
When it glows, it transfers intense heat to the food. This
sears the outside of the food to lock in juices and flavor.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Cook food directly on the charbroiler
grate, do not use cookware.
INSTALL BLANK-OFF PLATE
To convert the charbroiler to a lower heat output for more
even cooking, install the blank-off plate provided with your
gas rangetop. This stainless steel plate is placed directly
on the ceramic tiles.
Install the blank-off plate when the charbroiler is off and is
completely cool. Be sure to remove the plastic film from
the blank-off plate before installing.
To install the blank-off plate, remove the stainless steel
grate and wire mesh screen. Position the blank-off plate in
the middle of the ceramic tiles. Reinstall the wire mesh
screen with the notch at the left rear. Reinstall the grate.
Refer to the illustrations below.
Use caution when positioning the blank-off plate to
avoid damage to the ceramic tiles. Avoid contact with
the igniter; it is fragile and can chip or break.

CHARBROILING TIPS
IMPORTANT NOTE: The stainless steel cover must be
removed prior to operation of the charbroiler.
• Turn on the ventilation hood five minutes prior to using
the charbroiler.
• Turn the control knob counterclockwise to the HIGH
setting. You will hear the clicking sound of the igniter
lighting the burner.
• If the knob is not set fully at HIGH, the burner may turn
blue and the automatic igniter will begin sparking. Turn
the knob back to HIGH.
• Preheat the charbroiler for about 10 minutes before
adding food. The ceramic tiles will have an orange-red
glow.
• Always select lean meat or trim fat before grilling.
Flaming may occur when grilling meat and poultry with
excessive fat.
• To turn the charbroiler off, turn the control knob clockwise to the OFF position.
• To minimize flare-ups when grilling chicken breasts and
thighs, remove the skin. Brush pieces with peanut or
vegetable oil to reduce sticking to the grate.
To prevent flare-ups, never leave the charbroiler unattended during use.
• If flare-ups occur, quickly move the food to another
place on the grate with long tongs.
• Apply basting sauce halfway through cooking time.
• Use a minute timer as a reminder to turn the food over
halfway through cooking time.
• Leave the charbroiler on for approximately 10 minutes
after grilling is complete. This allows for easier cleaning
after the charbroiler has cooled sufficiently.

CHARBROILER CARE
To keep the charbroiler looking its best, it is recommended
that you clean it after every use. Allow the charbroiler
surface to cool sufficiently before cleaning.
• Charbroiler Grate (stainless steel): When cool, lift off
and set in the sink. Pour very hot water over the
cooked-on residue. Cover with wet dish towels and
pour more hot water over it. Allow the hot, moist conditions to help loosen the residue. Remove remaining
food soil with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse and
dry.

Infrared Griddle
• The griddle is shipped with a protective oil coating the
surface, use hot water and detergent to clean. Rinse
and dry.
• Turn on the ventilation hood five minutes prior to using
the griddle.
• The griddle needs to go through a “burn in” period.
Turn the griddle on at 350°F (175°C) for 30 minutes to
clean oils from the bottom of the griddle. After 30
minutes, turn the griddle off and allow it to cool.
• To season, pour a teaspoon (5 ml) of peanut or
vegetable oil per single griddle in the center; spread
evenly with a paper towel, avoiding the corners. Be
careful not to apply too much oil. Excess oil will leave a
gummy residue that will have to be removed.
• Turn on the ventilation hood five minutes prior to using
the griddle.
• To heat the griddle, push in the control knob and turn
counterclockwise to the desired temperature. It is
normal to hear a clicking sound. This is the electronic
ignition lighting the burner. When the burner is lit, the
thermostat will control the temperature.
• When the griddle is preheated, the griddle indicator
light will go out. The light will cycle on and off as the
thermostat requires more heat to maintain the set
temperature. This will allow heat to be evenly distributed and the griddle to maintain the set temperature.
• The double griddle has two burners with separate
control knobs that act independently of each other. If
only one griddle is being used, there will be some heat
transfer to the inactive griddle.
• To turn the griddle off, turn the control knob clockwise
to the OFF position.

French Top
The optional French top provides a graduated cooking
surface with the hottest temperature under the center
plate and the lowest temperature near the edges. This
design makes it possible to use several pans at once for a
variety of cooking tasks. For example, fry chicken toward
the center, while simmering a sauce in one corner and
keeping vegetables warm in a different corner. Place the
pan or pans toward the edge according to their contents
and quantity. Refer to the illustrations below.
The cooking surface is made of polished cast iron that is
an excellent heat conductor. The rings allow for the solid
surface to expand with the heat while remaining flat. The
rings also provide thermal breaks in the cast iron that
distribute heat in a graduated intensity, hottest in the
center and coolest around the edges.
To protect the cast iron surface from moisture, it is necessary to “season” the French top prior to use. This seasoning process as well as general use will change the
appearance of the French top.

SEASON THE FRENCH TOP
• The French top is shipped with a protective oil coating
the surface, use hot water and detergent to clean.
Rinse and dry.
• Turn on the ventilation hood five minutes prior to using
the French top.
• The French top needs to go through a “burn in” period.
Turn on the French top for 30 minutes to clean oils
from the bottom side of the surface. After 30 minutes,
turn the French top off and allow it to cool.
• To season, spread a light coating of peanut or
vegetable oil on a towel or cloth. While surface is still
slightly warm, apply oil evenly until it is absorbed into
the cast iron. Be careful not to apply too much oil.
Excess oil will leave a gummy residue that will have to
be removed.
• It is normal for the cast iron to darken with use to a
bluish-black color.
When this seasoning technique is applied correctly, food
spatters will not stain and the surface will be protected
from moisture. Its appearance darkens with use, a sign
that the French top has been fully tempered and is
properly seasoned. Regular maintenance will become
easier.

FRENCH TOP CARE
IMPORTANT NOTE: The stainless steel cover must be
removed prior to operating the French top.
• It is best to maintain a seasoned surface to protect the
cast iron from moisture.
• Turn on the ventilation hood five minutes prior to using
the French top.
• Clean the entire surface after each use while it is
slightly warm. Wipe the surface with a mild detergent
and water. Rinse and dry.
• To use the French top, push and turn the control knob
counterclockwise to the HIGH setting. You will hear the
clicking sound of the igniter lighting the burner.
• Preheat for 25 to 30 minutes before cooking on the
French top. This allows the solid cast iron plate to heat
thoroughly.
• To raise or lower the cooking heat, slide the pan either
toward (higher heat) or away from (lower heat) the
center plate. This gives you total control over the most
delicate sauces. It is not necessary to adjust the flame
height.
• To turn the French top off, turn the control knob clockwise to the OFF position.
FRENCH TOP COOKING TIPS
• Maintain the French top as you would a cast iron
skillet; keep it free from moisture.
• Reapply a light coating of peanut or vegetable oil to
the French top after each use until a sheen develops.
• Occasionally, remove the seasoning and clean the
French top thoroughly. Apply a small amount of white
vinegar and water to the surface while it is slightly
warm. Scrub and repeat until excess oil has been
removed. Apply a light coat of oil for seasoning.
• The French top burner is located below the center
plate. The plate remains in place during cooking but it
can be lifted off to check or service the burner. Use the
center plate hook provided with your rangetop as
shown in the illustration below.
• Always cook in pans. Do not cook food directly on the
surface.
• Never remove the center plate when cooking.

fastest to do it on one of the surface burners.
Never leave pans on a high heat zone unattended. Be
cautious when cooking food in fat or grease. It can
become hot enough to ignite.

DRIP PAN REMOVAL
RANGETOP CLEANING TIPS
The drip pan removal hook is provided with the gas
rangetop to lift and remove the drip pan for cleaning.
• Wait until surfaces are cool before cleaning.
To remove the drip pan, first remove the cast iron grates.
Insert the vinyl-coated end of the drip pan removal hook
into one of the oblong holes in the drip pan. Lift upward
and set the drip pan aside for cleaning. Refer to the
illustration below.
DRIP PAN
REMOVAL HOOK
• For best results, wipe up spills and spatters as they
occur and immediately after the rangetop has cooled.
If splatters are allowed to cook on, they may permanently damage or stain the finish.
• Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and
greasy spatters. Spray on a cloth and wipe the surface.
Buff dry immediately to avoid streaking. For hard water
stains, use white vinegar and water.
• If in doubt about using one of your cleaners, check the
label. To check if it is safe to use on your range, try a
small amount on an inconspicuous area.
• Use caution when spraying cleaners. Some contain
caustic ingredients that can damage adjacent parts
and finishes. Protect the adjacent parts by masking
them off to avoid damage by overspray.
• Do not spray cleaners on control knobs or igniters.

STAINLESS STEEL EXTERIOR
GENERAL CLEANING
Rangetop exterior, riser and trim.
Burner drip pan.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners; they will permanently
scratch stainless steel surfaces. Salt and some
cooking liquids may pit and stain the surface. Remove
these spills immediately.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners; they will permanently
scratch porcelain enamel surfaces. Use a clean cloth
or sponge and wipe the surface with warm water and a
mild detergent. Rinse and dry immediately.
• Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and
greasy spatters. Spray on a cloth and wipe the surface.
Buff dry immediately to avoid streaking. For hard water
stains, use white vinegar and water.
• For general cleaning, use a soft, nonabrasive stainless
steel cleaner like Signature polish and apply with a soft
lint-free cloth. To bring out the natural luster, lightly
wipe the surface with a water-dampened microfiber
cloth followed by a dry polishing chamois. All work
should follow the grain direction of the finish. Better
results are obtained by keeping the cloth in continuous
contact with the stainless steel.
• Signature polish is available from Signature Limited
Laboratory, P. O. Box 13436, Dayton, Ohio 45413, or
call 877-376-5474.
Burner grates.
• Remove burner grates and clean with a nonabrasive
cleaner such as liquid detergent in hot water or a paste
of baking soda and water. Spray degreasers and mild
abrasive cleaners may be used.
Burner base.
• Wash in warm water and liquid detergent or mild
abrasive cleaner. Rinse and dry.
Spark igniters.
• Keep dry; never spray water or cleaner directly on the
igniter. When cleaning surface burners, avoid contact
with the igniter.
Control knobs.
• Wipe control knobs with a damp cloth and mild detergent and water; rinse and dry. Do not soak the knobs
or use abrasive cleaners, they will scratch the finish
and remove markings.
Control panel.
• Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and food
soils. Spray on a cloth and wipe the panel. Do not
spray directly on the panel around valve stems.

Cookware Selection
Troubleshooting
For best results, we recommend medium- to heavy-weight
cookware. Pans should have a flat base, metal handle
and good-fitting cover. Look for pans that are made of
materials with good heat conductivity, such as aluminum
and copper. Use the following guidelines when selecting
cookware:
If your Wolf gas rangetop is not operating properly, use the
following troubleshooting guide before calling your Wolf
authorized service center. This guide will save you time
and trouble and may help you avoid the expense of a
service call.
• Select deep pans with high sides rather than ones with
wide bases and low sides to avoid boilovers.
Rangetop does not operate.
• Cover pans while cooking to improve cooking
efficiency. Water boils faster, using less fuel, and the
kitchen stays cooler.
• Select lower flame settings when using pans made of
cast iron, enameled steel or glass ceramic, or pans
coated with a nonstick finish. High heat may cause
“hot spots”, scorching and burning.
• Pans with oversize bases that extend beyond the
rangetop frame should not be used. On high settings,
heat may be trapped beneath the pan causing permanent damage to the surface finish.
• Check that the electrical connection to the rangetop
has not been disconnected, or if the household fuse or
circuit breaker has been blown or tripped.
• A power outage may have caused a disruption in
service.
Burner flame does not burn evenly.
• Burner parts may not be assembled correctly. Refer to
burner assembly on page 9.
Burner fails to ignite.
• Igniter is damp. Allow it to dry completely.
• For ease in handling, use front burners for larger pans.
• Use a wok with a flat bottom.
Burners extinguish themselves when using more than
one large pan simultaneously.
• Good gas combustion requires the correct amount of
airflow to maintain the flame. Using two oversized pans
simultaneously restricts air movement.
Food boils or burns more in one area of a pan.
• Pan is not centered above the burner or base of pan
does not rest flat on the burner grate.
• Pan does not conduct heat evenly.
Water does not come to a boil fast enough.
• Cover pan for most efficient use of the high setting.
• Diameter of pan is too large or base of pan is warped.
