Wolf recommends cleaning the entire French top surface after each use while slightly warm, follow these steps:

  1. Wipe with mild detergent and water.
  2. Rinse and dry.
  3. Reapply a small amount of peanut or vegetable oil on a paper towel and spread evenly to protect surface from oxidation.

For stubborn stains, use the Scotch-Brite™ pad with a mild abrasive.

  • Light scratches may occur with the use of your Scotch-Brite™ pad, this is normal.
    • This will not remove the "bluing" of the concentric rings, this is normal.
  • White vinegar and water can be helpful for the removal of stubborn stains and discoloring of the French top surface.
  • If oxidation or rust appears on the French top surface, simply clean it off with a fine grade steel wool.


Discoloration of the French top surface is normal. Blue discoloration is permanent.
The rear spacer lays in back of the French top plate and the cover lays on top of the French top plate.
The French top burner is below the center plate. To remove the center plate, use the center plate hook supplied with the range as shown in the illustration. Never remove the center plate while cooking.

For additional information, refer to the product Use and Care Guide or the Wolf Cleaning Guide.
