No worries, I'm getting another one.
If you're getting another wife, make sure she doesn't come with a Jenn-Air!

Not Happy with Wolf

We purchased a Wolf Dual Fuel and its not a great cooktop. If you are considering a Wolf, Do This-- Cook on one first. The flame is fine... its hard to mess up a gas flame. The problem is their burners throw the heat out.... and around. If you using smaller pots or pans they take a long time to heat up because the heat goes around the bottom at any setting over simmer. The pot handle will be hotter than the bottom of your pot!! On larger pans you have a cooler spot in the center of your pans.... uneven heating.
Customer Service's answer was....Wolf makes the best ranges in the world.
OK, If you want a name plate or wall hanger go for it.... try before you buy!!! A name isnt everything. What matters is How it cooks.

Well, I don't know why not. I LOVE my JennAir dual fuel range.

Kenn... trying out a Wolf before buying should be fairly easy. All the showrooms (at least in this area) offer cooking evenings so prospective buyers can try out the equipment.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
