Wolf Electric Cooktops
The following models may be used on the Jewish Sabbath or the Jewish Holidays (Yom Tov) in accordance with the instructions below:
||CT15E (Integrated Cooktop)
Please be aware that there are restrictions in the use of ovens and stoves on the Sabbath and Holidays. If you are unfamiliar with the laws of keeping food warm on the Sabbath or cooking on the Holidays, please call your Rabbi. Please note that when the Holiday and Sabbath coincide, the Sabbath laws prevail.
||ICBCT15E (Integrated Cooktop)
- On the Sabbath, electric heat may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off. On the Holidays, once on, the temperature may be raised when the ribbon heating element cycles to full glow. Lowering the temperature is permitted at any time if required for food preparation. (Practice adjustments on the electric cooktops before the Holiday.)
- For glass tops, the manufacturer does not recommend putting a standard "blech" on the glass surface. Instead, just the controls should be covered with cloth, or with tented aluminum foil, leaving 1/2 to 1 inch space between the controls and the foil. (Covering the controls directly with foil may cause the element to shut off.)
- After recovery from a power failure, the electric cooktops will return in the OFF setting and cannot be used again for that Sabbath or Holiday.
- The glass electric cooktops can be kashered for Passover. See video and/or directions from Star-K or Wolf Appliance Inc to be sure of the safe method for this process. For the rest of the year, be sure to wipe the cooking surface clean between meat and dairy use.
For proper operation of your Wolf electric cooktop please follow the following guidelines:
For the 15 and 30-inch units, all elements can be left on at their maximum setting indefinitely.
For the 36-inch units, the back right heating element can be left on indefinitely only in zones 1 and 2. All elements can be set at a maximum of 12 bars.
How to Kasher Your Wolf Electric Cooktop for Pesach
Please note: The Star-K has reviewed this kashering procedure and determined that it is acceptable for kashering Wolf cooktops. Consumers may not assume that this procedure applies to any other brand of cooktop, as different materials are used by different companies, and this may damage other types of cooktops.
