Wolf Electric Cooktops

T
he following models may be used on the Jewish Sabbath or the Jewish Holidays (Yom Tov) in accordance with the instructions below:

Electric Cooktops
CT30E CT36E 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.

  1. On the Sabbath & Holidays, electric heat may not be initiated, adjusted or turned off.

  2. On the Sabbath, a "blech" should be used to cover the elements in addition to covering the controls. 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.)

  3. The grill has a timer. However, a tone has to be cancelled when the time is up, so this feature is not useable for the Sabbath or the Holidays.

  4. 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.

  5. The glass electric cooktops cannot be kashered for Passover. 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:
  1. For the 15 and 30-inch units, all elements can be left on at their maximum setting indefinitely.

  2. 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.
