Accomodating for electric ovens
Like the smaller version of this range, it has a 20,000 BTU power burner, a low output of 300 BTU on all the burners, a timeless style, and Wolf’s record of reliable customer service.
These machines are for serious cooks and bakers with serious budgets. But as far as practical considerations go, that’s about it.
It’s the same width as a standard slide-in or freestanding range—but compared with the gas range we recommend for most (nonluxury) kitchens, it’s about six times the price.
This model is narrower than Wolf’s other dual-fuel ranges and has only four burners, but it basically comes with the same features as you’ll find on the larger models.
It won’t necessarily improve your cooking skills—that’s on you—but it will add power and versatility to your craft, and it will improve the look of your kitchen in the process.
Whereas the average freestanding or slide-in range features four cooktop burners at a 30-inch width, pro-style ranges typically fit into 36- or 48-inch spaces and have at least six burners.
I spent more than 40 hours researching high-end ranges, looking at how they’re used, who buys them, what makes a good one, and why anybody should buy one.
