If You’re Thinking of Buying a Wolf Dual Fuel Range or Wolf Gas Range…

Written by Appliance Dude | July 8th, 2010

I just had a customer from NYC who was shopping for appliances pepper me with a bunch of questions about Wolf appliances. First and foremost she needs to figure out whether to buy a Wolf dual fuel range or a Wolf gas range. Since I’m hit with this question on a regular basis I figured it’d find a nice home here on the blog.

I’m going to break this down to bullet points so it’s easy to digest:

Wolf Dual Fuel Range

– Comes in 30″, 36″, 48″ and 60″ with a multitude of top configurations
– Self cleaning oven
– Dual convection fan system (creates a more even temp in oven, cooks faster)
– Electronic control knobs
– Sealed burners
– Burner grates are continuous

Wolf Gas Ranges Analysis
– Comes in 30″, 36″, 48″ and 60″ with a multitude of top configurations
– Oven is NOT self cleaning
– No electronic controls
– Now offers dampened hinges on doors so they don’t crash down when opened
– Burners are not sealed
– Grates are not continuous

My .02 – The Wolf dual fuel ranges are amazing works of engineering. However I have a place in my hear for the venerable Wolf gas range. I like the heritage behind the product (it’s existed in one form or another for decades) and I like its no frills approach to features. I also like the knobs on the gas range more (they are more contoured than the dual fuel knobset) and let’s face it – the lower price point on the gas ranges (sometimes approaching a $3000 price difference) is an important point to consider.
