Unframed cooktops offer design flexibility
Wolf has been recognized for providing the trade with products that promote design flexibility without sacrificing functionality for the homeowner. One design option that is gaining popularity is our unframed electric and induction cooktops. Our 30” and 36” electric and induction cooktops are available with rounded edges and no trim, allowing you to build them in flush with the countertop, creating a clean, blended in look for the cooktop. Important points to consider:
  • Each unframed cooktop comes with a template for creating the cut-out. However, to ensure a tight fit it is recommended that you measure the cooktop glass before cutting the countertop. Small variances may exist between the template and the cooktop. Another option is to lay the cooktop face down on the countertop and mark your cut-out. Remember to protect the cooktop surface before laying it face down.
  • To tie in the flush look with the rest of the kitchen, keep in mind we have several other Sub-Zero and Wolf product lines that can be mounted flush with the cabinetry, including our new Sub-Zero built-in refrigeration line, Wolf E Series ovens and several others.
  • Because the cooking surface will be on the same plane as the countertop, flush mount installations are intended for granite, solid surface or stone countertop surfaces only.
Please be aware you also have the option to install an unframed cooktop on top of the countertop instead of flush, providing you with even more flexibility. Framed electric and induction cooktops are also available with stainless steel trim around the edges.
