Induction Cooking
Control Panel
Induction cooking has been used in Europe for decades
by professionals and homeowners demanding the best in
performance.
The control panel of your induction cooktop is illuminated
for instant visual indication that one or more elements
are in use. The control panel features touch controls with
graduated control lighting. A power bar indicator in each
control will display the heat setting level for the element.
Refer to the illustration below.
When a cast iron or magnetic stainless steel pan is placed
on the glass-ceramic surface, currents are induced in the
cooking utensil and instant heat is generated due to the
resistance of the pan. Induction only works with cooking
vessels made of magnetic materials, such as cast iron and
magnetic stainless steel (it will not work with aluminum or
copper pots). To test the cookware, a magnet must stick
to the bottom of the vessel in order to function.
CAUTION
Do not place hot cookware directly over the control
panel.
BENEFITS OF INDUCTION COOKING
Controllability. Homogeneous cooking to distribute the
heat perfectly (no hot or burned spots). You can keep
sauces and chocolates melted at 50 watts of power, or
with the touch of a finger, activate Hi-Power mode and boil
water in half the time you normally do.
Energy efficiency. Energy is supplied directly to the
cooking vessel so 85% to 90% of the electric energy gets
used to cook. This means a cooler kitchen and cooktop.
Easy to clean. The surface remains relatively cool, so
overflows and spills do not stick or burn onto the element.
The surface will be warm after removing a saucepan with
hot contents. Wait until the surface cools to clean with
soapy water.

HI-POWER MODE
HOT SURFACE INDICATOR
Hi-Power mode boosts power on one induction element
by diverting power from an adjacent element. This mode is
suitable for frying foods or boiling water rapidly.
As a safety precaution, a hot-surface indicator light will
illuminate when the surface temperature of any one of the
induction elements rises above 150°F (65°C). ‘HOT’ will
illuminate in the control panel display. It will remain illuminated until the entire surface temperature has lowered to a
safe level, even after the cooktop controls are turned off.
To activate Hi-Power mode, touch the OFF ON touch pad
for the element you wish to use. Then touch HI-POWER.
Power from an adjacent element will automatically be
diverted to the element. If the adjacent element is on HIGH
power, the power output will be reduced. This reduction in
power will be displayed in the power bar indicator of the
adjacent element.

Do not use the cooktop as a cutting board.
• Do not slide cookware with a rough bottom, such as
cast iron, across the glass-ceramic surface. If this
occurs, remove any marks with a nonabrasive cleaner.
• Do not allow any item that could melt to come in
contact with the glass-ceramic surface when it is hot.
If this occurs, use the razor blade scraper provided with
the cooktop to remove.
• Do not place food directly on the glass-ceramic surface
when it is hot.
• Do not operate the cooktop if the glass-ceramic surface
is broken. Contact Wolf factory certified service.
• Do not place a trivet, wok support ring or other metal
stand directly onto the cooktop surface.
• Do not apply chlorine bleach, ammonia or other strong
chemicals or cleaners to the cooktop surface.
• Do not wipe the cooktop surface with a cloth that may
leave a film of detergent; it will cause the cooktop to
discolor during the next heating cycle.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not place hot cookware near the
sealed outer edges of flush-mounted unframed cooktops.
This will cause damage to the silicone seal.
Induction Cooktop Care

Care Recommendations
CLEANING
MAINTENANCE
• Lock the cooktop before cleaning by touching and
holding the key symbol for 3 seconds.
The Wolf induction cooktop is a sealed system that does
not require internal maintenance. The cleaning and care
recommendations outline necessary maintenance for the
glass-ceramic surface. All other maintenance must be
performed by Wolf factory certified service.
• Clean the cooktop surface thoroughly before operating
for the first time and after each use.
• Wait until the cooktop surface is cool before cleaning. It
will be safe to clean if the hot-surface indicator light is
not illuminated.
• For best results, wipe up spills and spatters as they
occur and immediately after the cooktop has cooled.
If spills with a high sugar content are allowed to cook
on, they may permanently damage the glass-ceramic
surface. Use the razor blade scraper provided with the
cooktop to remove heavy or burned-on spills.
• Do not use abrasive cleaners or applicators; they will
permanently scratch cooktop surfaces.
• Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and
greasy spatters.
• To clean the glass-ceramic surface, use a nonabrasive
cleaner like Elco Cooktop Cleaning Creme and apply
with a lightly dampened cloth. Remove any cleaning
residue from the surface and wipe with a dry cloth.
• To clean the stainless steel trim of framed models, use
a nonabrasive stainless steel cleaner and apply with a
soft lint-free cloth. Remove any cleaning residue from
the trim and wipe with a dry cloth.
Induction Cooktop Care

Cookware Selection
Cookware selection is crucial in the performance of induction cooking. Use the following guidelines when selecting
cookware:
• Magnetic stainless steel or cast iron cookware is
required for induction cooking. To test, a magnet must
stick to the bottom of the cookware. Aluminum, copper,
glass and certain stainless steel cookware will not
function with induction elements.
• For optimum performance, select cookware with a
diameter that matches the diameter of the induction element. When a pan is placed on the element, it
should not extend beyond the ring around the element.
The diameter of the pan must also meet or exceed
the minimum listed for each element, or the induction
element will not function. Refer to the cookware
selection guide.
• Avoid pots and pans with uneven or rounded bottom
surfaces. Some specialty cookware such as woks,
pressure cookers, canning modules and deep fat fryers
must be carefully selected to meet induction cooking
criteria.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Digital and magnetic thermometers
may produce inaccurate readings.
