About This Brand

Width (in.) This measurement indicates the width of the front of the oven in inches. It does not indicate the necessary size of the cabinet cut-out, which is model dependent. Note that a wall oven will typically fit into the same size or wider cabinet.
Covered element Smooth cover or floor over the bottom baking element makes for easier cleanup of drips and spills.
Convection mode Has a convection feature that uses a fan or two to circulate heated air, and sometimes an extra heating element. The convection mode can be turned off if you prefer conventional cooking.
Temperature probe A temperature probe is an electronic thermometer that can be inserted into cuts of meat. It allows for the internal temperature of the food to be displayed on the control panel and for users to control the oven.
bought this oven 6 years ago with the pizza accessorie. Very pricy, but worth every penny. I had an extended warrenty from the appliance store. After two years, the bottom of the oven completely burned out. The appliance store said I was covered if it wasn't a manufacturers defect.The Wolf repair man said it was a defect that Wolf knows about. That model had a heating element that breaks loose and destroys the bottom of the oven. When I called Wolf, they said that was true,but they couldn't repair the problem and wanted $2,500 to replace the oven with one that worked.It took me 6 months and the threat of a law suite to get Wolf to do the right thing and replace my oven.They never told customers that they had purchased a product with a known defect. Buyer beware.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months

Easy To Clean
Heats Up Quickly
We purchased the Wolf L series 30 inch double ovens as part of our kitchen renovation. As avid cooks, we decided to invest in the best appliances we could (barely) afford. These puppies are pricy. We were impressed first by the weight of the unit (400 lbs!) and then, once installed, by the fit and finish. <br /><br />We began to use the ovens by preparing the toughest challenges we had with our previous Jenn-air wall oven. For example, there is a liquid-batter cake that, in the past, would set prematurely at the edge and then often collapse in the centre because we had to take it out before the edges burnt. The Wolf produced a PERFECT cake. I don't know how, but it did.<br /><br />We like the proof setting for proofing yeast doughs as well as the control panel that rotates completely out of sight when not in use. The centre rack rolls on bearings! <br /><br />Bright halogen cavity lighting, pleasant timer chimes, floor-level exhaust, very little heat transfer to the surrounding cabinets.
