Cherelle Fournier Electric Range February 05, 2019 08:02:21
The biggest thing separating this one from our favorite is the price. We just felt the limited improvements didn’t quite justify the much higher pricing for the average person. The top is made of smooth glass and has five different burners for different pots and pans. It also lacks a backsplash which gives a sleek look to the whole appliance. The bottom is another pair of ovens, one convection and one standard electric. They’re roughly the same as our top pick, a standard electric upper and a convection lower adding up to a ton of different cooking possibilities. If you’re willing to spend the extra money for much better styling, then go ahead and add this range to your home. It’s great all the way around.
First things first, the Wolf DF304 is called a dual fuel range because it has a gas cooktop and an electric oven, offering more precision on the stove and more even heating in the cavity. This range is definitely aimed at the wealthy and those who get a lot (and we mean a lot) of use out of their kitchens. That being said, the Wolf offers a lot of things no other range in this price range does. The cooktop has four burners with the following BTUs: 9,200, 15,000, 18,000, and 20,000. They can be turned up high for a fast boil, but they also go down to 300 BTU for simmering. The 4.5-cubic-foot double convection oven has ten cooking modes, including bake and convection bake, and one specifically made for dehydrating food. Some of the optional accessories include a kit for all that food you’re going to dehydrate and a bake stone. If you like the stainless steel professional look, this range certainly has it, and it allows for some customization, such as knob color. The oven’s interior is blue porcelain, similar to the LG oven. The Wolf range is definitely expensive, but you’re paying for more than just its looks.
