S A F E T Y INSTRUCTIONS AND PREC AUTIONS
W H AT TO D O
IMPORTANT NOTE: Read all
instructions before using this
appliance.
Read this Use & Care Information
carefully before using your new
cooktop to reduce the risk of fire,
electric shock or injury to persons.
Ensure proper installation and
servicing. This appliance must be
properly installed and grounded by
a qualified technician. Have the
installer show you where the fuse
box is located so that you know
where to turn off power.
Wear proper apparel. Never let loose
clothing or other flammable
materials come in contact with the
elements while in operation. Fabric
may ignite and result in personal
injury.
Use only dry pot holders when
removing pans from the cooktop.
Wet or damp pot holders on hot
surfaces may result in burns from
steam. Do not let pot holders touch
hot heating elements.
Select cookware of the proper size,
material and construction for the
particular type of cooking being
done. This unit is equipped with one
or more surface units of different
size. Refer to Cookware Selection on
page 19.
Always turn pan handles inward so
they do not extend over adjacent
work areas, heating elements or
edges of cooktop to reduce the risk
of burns, ignition of flammable
materials and spillage due to
unintentional contact with pan. Do
not turn handles toward the room,
where they may be bumped or
easily hit.
Always use a setting of eight bars
or less on the bridge element when
cooking on a griddle. Higher settings
are not needed and can damage the
cooktop and cookware. Refer to
Bridge-Zone Element on page 15.
4
W H A T N OT TO D O
Never use your cooktop to warm or
heat a room.
When using the cooktop DO NOT
TOUCH THE GLASS SURFACE
directly above or adjacent to the
heating elements. The glass surface
may become hot enough to cause
burns.
Do not leave children alone or
unattended in the area where the
cooktop is in use. Never allow
children to sit or stand on the
appliance. Do not let children play
with the cooktop.
Do not repair or replace any part of
the appliance unless it is specifically
recommended in literature you
received. All service should be
referred to a Wolf authorized service
center.
Do not use water on grease fires.
Smother the flame or use a dry
chemical or foam-type extinguisher.
Never leave the cooktop unattended
when using high heat settings.
Boilovers and greasy spillovers may
smoke or ignite.
DO NOT store items of interest to
children above or at the back of
the cooktop, as they could climb
on the appliance to reach items
and be injured.
Do not operate the cooktop if the
ceramic glass top is broken or
severely pitted. Call a Wolf
authorized service center to repair
the appliance.
Do not store flammable materials
near hot components or let grease
or other flammable substances
accumulate on the cooktop.
Do not clean the cooktop while it is
still hot. If using a damp sponge or
cloth, wait until the cooktop has
cooled sufficiently to prevent steam
burns. Also, some cleaners give off
noxious fumes when applied to hot
surfaces. Refer to Cooktop Cleaning
on page 18 and Cooktop Care on
page 20.
Do not use a griddle, open roaster
or fish poacher across two heating
elements unless the bridge element
is turned on. This type of use
without the bridge element turned
on could damage or crack the glass.
Refer to Bridge-Zone Element on
page 15.
Do not block the cooling fan
exhaust or intake vents. The cooling
fan automatically turns on to cool
internal parts. It may continue to run
even after the cooktop has been
turned off.

C O N T RO L O P E R AT I O N
M O D E S O F O P E R AT I O N
The Wolf electric cooktop operates by using
high-frequency pulsation, cycling the heating
elements between zero power and full power.
As the heat is increased on the control panel,
the element will stay at full power for longer
periods and have shorter periods of zero
power.
LOCK MODE
In Lock mode, all touch pad operations on
the control panel are disabled and all heating
elements are turned off. A steady glowing light
within the “key” symbol indicates that the unit
is locked. Refer to the illustration below.
To lock the control panel, touch and hold
the key for 3 seconds. The unit will beep
three times and the light within the key
symbol will illuminate. The control unit is
now in Lock mode.
When using the dual-zone or triple-zone
elements, all sections of the element will cycle
at the same rate. For safety reasons, the outer
elements cannot be turned on independently
from the center section.
To unlock the control panel, touch and
hold the key for 3 seconds. The unit will
beep twice and the light within the key
symbol will go out. The control unit is now
in Idle mode.
T O U C H C O N T R O L PA N E L
The control panel of your electric 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. The illustrations below show
the control panel of Model CT36E.
IMPORTANT NOTE: When the unit is powered
up for the first time or if there has been a
power outage for longer than 5 seconds, the
cooktop will default to Lock mode.
IDLE MODE
After unlocking the control panel as described
in Lock Mode, the unit enters the Idle mode of
operation. The only valid touch pad operations
are OFF ON for each element, the Lock mode
key and the timer functions.

As a safety precaution, a hot-surface indicator
light will illuminate when the surface
temperature of any one of the heating
elements rises above 150˚F (65˚C). ”HOT” will
illuminate in the control panel. It will remain
illuminated until the entire surface temperature
has decreased to a safe level. Even if the
cooktop controls are turned off, you are alerted
that an area of the cooktop remains hot.
Before operating the cooktop for the first time,
please read the entire Use & Care Information.
COOLING FA N
The electric cooktop is equipped with a cooling
fan that automatically turns on to cool internal
parts. The fan will turn off once internal
temperatures have been lowered. During
extended use, the cooling fan may continue to
run even after the cooktop has been turned off
until internal temperatures have been lowered.
Clean the cooktop surface as outlined in the
Ceramic Glass Top cleaning section on page
18. The cooktop surface must be free of any
foreign substances, especially those that could
melt and permanently adhere to the glass.
During the first uses of your new electric
cooktop, you may smell a slight burning odor
or see light smoke. Both of these conditions
are normal in new ceramic glass cooktops.
Make sure that the cooktop surface is
clean and dry before operating.
Do not place hot cooking utensils directly
over the control panel.

BRIDGE-ZONE ELEMENT GRIDDLE USE
The electric cooktop features a countdown
timer located in the control panel. Refer to the
illustration below.
Always use a setting of 8 bars or less on the
bridge-zone element when cooking on a
griddle. Higher settings are not needed and
can damage the cooktop and cookware.
To preheat the griddle, set the bridge
element at 14 bars for 5 minutes, then turn the
heat down to 8 bars for cooking.
The timer may be set to any one-minute
increment from 1 to 99. Once set, the
remaining time will be illuminated in the
control panel as it counts down. The timer is
available for use in any mode except Lock
mode.
To turn on the timer, touch ”+” on the
timer control.
A griddle, open roaster, or fish poacher
should not be used when the bridge-zone
is off or on any of the other combination
of circular heating elements.
Touch and hold ”+” or ”–” until the desired
time is reached. The timer will start 3
seconds after the last change in value.
When the timer reaches 0, the unit will
sound. The reminder will continue to sound
until CLEAR is pressed.

To turn on user option, the cooktop must
be in Idle mode.
Both the volume and frequency are adjusted
using the ”+” and ”–” touch pads. One touch
equals one step up or down in volume or
frequency. The triple-zone element power bar
indicator graph will show the current status of
the volume or frequency and will change with
the user’s input. (1 bar = low, 8 bars = medium
and 16 bars = high.)
As the volume/frequency is adjusted, the
cooktop will beep with each change. The beep
will represent the volume/frequency level that
is currently displayed by the power bar graph.
To exit the user option and return the
cooktop to Idle mode, touch and hold
CLEAR for more than 7 seconds.
Or, if no touch pad is touched for 10
seconds, the level is then stored and the
cooktop returns to Idle mode.

Lock the cooktop before cleaning by touching
and holding the key symbol for 3 seconds.
For general cleaning after each use, apply a
nonabrasive cleaner to the stainless steel
cooktop frame and gently wipe with a clean
towel or cloth. Be sure to remove any cleaner
residue from the frame and ceramic glass
surface before using the cooktop.
Clean the top surface thoroughly before
operating the cooktop for the first time. Apply
approximately 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of nonabrasive cleaner (such as Elco Cook Top Cleaning
Creme) to the surface of the ceramic glass with
a lightly dampened clean cloth. Use a second
clean cloth to remove any remaining cleaner
residue. Wipe the cooktop surface with a dry
cloth to completely eliminate any remaining
moisture.
The cooktop should be cleaned after each use.
To avoid personal injury, be careful not to wipe
or clean any hot areas. It will be safe to clean
each element area whenever the hot-surface
indicator light has gone out.
To remove heavy or burned-on spills, allow the
cooktop to cool. Use the razor blade scraper
provided with the cooktop to scrape off any
burned-on substances. Remove any remaining
residue using the cleaning method described
above.
Pitting of the ceramic glass is possible if
spills with a high sugar content are left in
the hot zone. Use the razor blade
provided to move the spill to a cool area
for cleaning after the cooktop cools.

C O O K WA R E S E L E C T I O N G U I D E
Cooktops with a ceramic glass surface do not
require special pots and pans; however,
cookware will affect overall cooking efficiency.
For best results, we recommend medium- to
heavy-gauge metal cookware with flat, thick
and smooth bottoms and a good-fitting lid.
Use the following guidelines when selecting
cookware:
Choose cookware that corresponds to the following element
diameters and dimensions (bridge-zone element):
Select cookware with a diameter that
matches the cooking zone. When a pan is
placed on the heating element, it should not
extend beyond the ring around the cooking
zone. Cookware for the bridge-zone element
should match the cooking zone size as
closely as possible. Refer to the Cookware
Selection Guide.
Look for pans that are made of materials
with good heat conductivity, such as
aluminum and copper. These metals are
sometimes found ”sandwiched” between
the inner and outer layers of the pan. If
present, whether visible from the outside or
not, they aid in evenly conducting heat.
Cast iron and especially glass cookware will
be slower to heat. Glass cookware should
only be used as recommended by the
cookware manufacturer.

*Power output differs for Model CT30-208/S. Refer to page 7 for this model.
Cover pans while cooking; covers improve
cooking efficiency. Water boils faster, using
less energy, and the kitchen stays cooler.
Select high-sided (deep) pans rather than
ones with very wide bases and low sides.
High sides will minimize liquids boiling
over the pan.
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 the
guidelines above.

Follow these guidelines to avoid injury
and prevent permanent damage to the
cooktop.
Do not use the cooktop as a cutting board.
Do not slide rough-bottom cookware, such
as cast iron, across the glass surface.
Remove any resulting marks immediately
using the razor blade scraper and cleaning
cream as mentioned in Cooktop Cleaning
on page 18.
Do not allow any item that could melt to
come in contact with the hot ceramic glass
surface. If such a condition occurs, remove
it immediately from the hot element with a
razor blade.
Do not place food directly on cooktop
surface when it is warm or hot.
Do not operate the cooktop if the ceramic
glass surface is broken. Contact a Wolf
authorized service center.
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 use abrasive cleaners or applicators.
Do not wipe the cooktop surface with a
sponge or dish cloth that may leave a film
of detergent; it will cause the cooktop to
discolor during the next heating cycle.
Do not set hot cooking utensils near the
sealed outer edges of flush-mounted
Models CT30EU or CT36EU. This will
cause damage to the silicone seal.
