About - Wolf GR366

The Wolf GR366 is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, pro-style ranges models like the GR366 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful element could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3 quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the ability of the lowest power element to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful element to its lowest setting to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Comment:
Cooking on the stove top such as corn, peas, fried potatoes, eggs and pancakes always come out great as long as you adjust the temperature. The controls on this unit have adjustments from low to high that performs as expected giving the cook total control of the meal. <br />The main issue with the unit when you're using the oven is that the heat is directed straight out the top, they sell a 5 and a 12 diverter that forces the heat towards the front. This is fine but it does not force the heat out enough because the diverter is just and funnel and not assisted by any fan. This for some people is ok if you have it installed on an island but I have against the wall and I've installed Pot filler above the stove and it heats up the Pot filler causing condensation and heating up the filler that could cause the seals in the filler to go out or leak. The way I solved the problem is I place either a cookie sheet or cake pan on the vent below the Pot filler while we're baking but do not cover the entire vent only under Pot filler, this works out very well and solved the problem. It's just a work around that you should not have to do on a unit in this price range. If you can place the supply water line to your Pot filler at least 13 to 16 above the top of the oven then you should be fine, my line is around 10 above the oven I was limited on space because of 36 Microwave above oven. We've not used the convection mode so I'm unable to comment on it. It's a great looking and solid oven built to high standards and we have no regrets so far.
