oil and grease left on the surface from the manufacturing
process. Refer to care recommendations on page 20.
Check that the surface burner parts are assembled
correctly. Refer to the following page for specific instructions.
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 12 for recommendations.

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.
A distinguishing feature of Wolf’s low Btu/hr control is its
constant, low heat output without continuous ignitions.
The flame diameter remains full size; only the heat output
is lowered. This patented dual-stacked burner design
makes it possible to enjoy cooking at full flame as well as
maintain control while simmering at the lowest flame
setting.
DUAL-STACKED BURNER ASSEMBLY
The unique dual-stacked burner design combines all of
the burner parts in one assembly.
After removing burner parts for cleaning, it is important
that you reassemble the burners correctly. The burner cap
must be seated flatly on the burner. There is a groove on
the bottom of the burner cap. Adjust the burner cap until it
drops into place and is seated flat on top of the burner.
Failure to do this will result in a poor flame. Refer to the
illustration below.
BURNER
CAP
SEALED BURNER

IGNITER
Failure to assemble the burner parts correctly could
cause flames or gas to escape and burn between
parts, resulting in poor combustion or damage to the
rangetop.
GRATE PLACEMENT
The low-profile, continuous burner grates are designed for
a close fit. This enables you to move pans easily from one
burner to another without having to lift the pan or have it
tip over between the grates. Each grate sets securely on
dimples on each corner of the burner pan.
The burner grates are interchangeable, excluding the
charbroiler grate with a burner grate.
Position the porcelain-coated, cast iron grates over two
burners. Rubber pads located under the grate support
legs will match up with the dimples on the burner pans.
The burner drip pan holds as much as 21/2 cups (.6 L) of
liquid spillover per two-burner pan.

CONTROL KNOBS
FLAME HEIGHT AND APPEARANCE
The control knobs are positioned to correspond to the
burners they regulate. The knobs on the far left regulate
the burners on the left side. Conversely, the knobs on the
far right regulate the burners on the right side.
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. Smaller diameter pans should be used on
the left rear burner.
The precision fit of the control knobs requires the use of
a nyliner inserted between the knob and bezel. When
removing knobs for cleaning, place the bearing back
inside the bezel for easy reinstallation of the knobs. Refer
to the illustration below.
To light a burner, push in and turn the corresponding
control knob counterclockwise to the HIGH setting. You
will hear a clicking sound and see the burner ignite. Once
the burner is lit, continue turning the knob counterclockwise to any one of the settings, HIGH through LOW.
To select a SIMMER setting, turn the control knob to the
LOW setting. You will feel a stop detent in the knob
rotation. Push the knob in and continue turning it counterclockwise. This moves the flame to the second tier. Then
select any one of the SIMMER settings, HIGH through
LOW.
Each control knob is designed to be a push-to-turn knob.
Although this is a child-safe design, children should never
be left unattended in the kitchen when the rangetop is in
use.
NYLINER
Control knob nyliner insertion.
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 rangetop. 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 each burner individually using a BBQ lighter.

Cookware Selection
TEMPERATURE SETTING GUIDE
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:

• When a large pan is centered over a burner, the
diameter should not exceed 10" (254).
• 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.
• Cover pans while cooking to improve cooking
efficiency. Water boils faster, using less fuel, and the
kitchen stays cooler.
• Select deep pans with high sides rather than ones with
wide bases and low sides to avoid boilovers.
• 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.
• For ease in handling, use front burners for larger pans.
• Use a wok with a flat bottom.
Never leave pans on a HIGH setting unattended.
Be careful when cooking food in fat or grease; it can
become hot enough to ignite.

Infrared Charbroiler
The optional charbroiler has an infrared burner to give the
most efficient method of gas grilling. A radiant plate with
numerous holes distributes the heat evenly over the grate.
The burner becomes an orange-red color at the surface of
the ceramic tile, and when it glows, it transfers an intense
heat to the food. This sears the outside of the food to lock
in juices and flavor.
CHARBROILING TIPS
Before using the charbroiler for the first time, place the
radiant plate slots over the front deflector of the charbroiler frame. The edges of the charbroiler grate should
line up on top of the assembly.
• Always select lean meat or trim fat before grilling.
Flaming may occur when grilling meat and poultry with
excessive fat.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Cook food directly on the charbroiler
grate, do not use cookware.
• Turn on the ventilation hood five minutes prior to using
the charbroiler.
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
• The suggested grilling times in the charbroiler grilling
guide on page 15 are approximate. Actual times
depend on the quantity, thickness and starting temperature of the food.
To prevent flare-ups, never leave the charbroiler unattended during use.

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 (porcelain-coated cast iron). When
cool, lift off and set in the sink. Use a soft bristle brush
to remove food particles from the grate. 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 soil with a soap-filled scouring pad. Rinse
and dry.
• Charbroiler Frame (stainless steel). Remove from the
rangetop. Soak in hot water and dish detergent. Wash
thoroughly, scrubbing with scouring pad, if needed.
• Igniter (ceramic). Avoid contact with the igniter; it is
fragile and can chip or break.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use commercial cleaners on
any part of the charbroiler assembly.

Infrared Griddle
The optional griddle is thermostatically controlled, which
means once the set temperature is reached, the heat
cycles to hold that temperature. To prevent food from
sticking and to protect the surface from moisture, it is
necessary to “season” the griddle prior to use. This
seasoning process as well as general use will change the
appearance of the griddle.
SEASON THE 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.
• Push and turn the control knob to 350°F (175°C). Heat
until you see the first signs of smoke. Turn the griddle
off. When the griddle has cooled and is only slightly
warm, wipe off any excess oil. Let the griddle cool
completely.
• Repeat with another teaspoon of oil. The brown
appearance will darken with use.
GRIDDLE OPERATION
IMPORTANT NOTE: The stainless steel cover must be
removed prior to operating the griddle.
• 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.

griddle and scrape the grease into the grease collection tray. Empty the grease collection tray. Rinse the
griddle with 1/2 cup (118 ml) warm water and dry with
paper towels.
• Clean the grease collection tray after each use. Do not
allow grease to accumulate in the tray and become a
fire hazard.
• To remove the grease collection tray, gently pull the
tray toward you to lift it out. Clean the tray with soapy
water and a clean cloth. To replace, slide the short
edge of the grease collection tray under the edge of
the griddle and lower into the opening.
• Apply a small amount of peanut or vegetable oil to the
griddle with a clean cloth after each cleaning.
• Occasionally, remove the seasoning and clean the
griddle thoroughly. Apply a small amount of white
vinegar and water to the surface while it is slightly
warm. Scrub with a fine wire brush or a fine-grit griddle
brick. Repeat until excess oil has been removed. Apply
a light coat of oil for seasoning.

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.

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 OPERATION
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 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.

HOOK
• When bringing large amounts of water to a boil, it is
fastest to do it on one of the surface burners.
Never leave pans on a high heat zone unattended.
Be careful when cooking food in fat or grease; it can
become hot enough to ignite.

Care Recommendations
RANGETOP CLEANING TIPS
Burner caps (porcelain enamel).
• Wait until surfaces are cool before cleaning.
• Wash in warm water and liquid detergent or mild
abrasive cleaner. Rinse and dry.
• 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.
• If in doubt about using one of your cleaners, check the
label. To check if it is safe to use on your rangetop, 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.
• Never wipe a warm or hot porcelain surface with a
damp sponge; it may cause chipping or crazing (tiny
hairlike cracks).
• Hand wash all decorative components, including
control knobs, bezels, grates and burner caps. These
components should not be cleaned in the dishwasher.
• Do not spray cleaners on control knobs or igniters.
Spark igniters (ceramic).
• Keep dry; never spray water or cleaner directly on the
igniter. When cleaning surface burners, avoid contact
with the igniter.
Control knobs and bezels.
• Wipe control knobs and bezels with a damp cloth and
mild detergent and water; rinse and dry. Do not soak, or
use abrasive cleaners, they will scratch the finish and
remove markings. Do not clean in the dishwasher.
Control panel (stainless steel).
• Use a spray degreaser to remove fingerprints and food
soils. Spray on a cloth and the wipe panel. Do not spray
directly on the panel around valve stems.
Rangetop exterior, riser and trim (stainless steel).
Burner grates (porcelain-coated cast iron).
• 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.
• 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.
• 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.
GENERAL CLEANING
Burner pan (porcelain enamel).
• 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.
• 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 of the finish. For best results, keep the
cloth in continuous contact with the surface.
• Signature polish is available from Signature Limited
Laboratory, P. O. Box 13436, Dayton, Ohio 45413, or

Troubleshooting Guide

Troubleshooting
If your Wolf sealed burner 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.
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.
Simmer setting does not maintain constant temperature.
Rangetop does not operate.
• Check the household fuse or circuit breaker to see if it
has been blown or tripped. A power outage may also
have caused a disruption in service.
• No electricity is being supplied to the rangetop. Have
an electrician verify that the rangetop is connected to a
proper electrical circuit.
Burner flame does not burn evenly.
• Align the burner cap of the dual-stacked, sealed burner
assembly as described on page 10.
Burner fails to ignite.
• Igniter is damp. Allow it to dry completely.
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 over the pan and into the burner drip pan.
• Heat setting is too high or pan is too small for its
contents.
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.
• Delicate foods may need a lower simmer setting so
that scorching does not occur.
Food cooks too slowly when sautéing.
• Too much food added at one time; sauté in batches.
• Size of food pieces is too large or temperature of food
is colder than usual.
Griddle or French top clicks continually.
• When the thermostat is turned on, the red light illuminates and the gas solenoid opens. You will hear a
series of sparks as it checks for the presence of a
flame. If the igniter does not detect a flame, the
solenoid shuts off and there will be a delay before
attempting to reignite. This will reoccur three times and
if it fails after the third time, it will shut down shortly to
allow non-combusted gas to dissipate before attempting to reignite.
• If the griddle or French top fails to ignite, contact a
Wolf authorized service center.
