Cleaning Bullnose Gap


  • How do you clean behind a unit's bullnose?
  • Why is there a gap behind the bullnose?
  • Food debris or spillover is getting behind the bullnose
  • Unable to clean between the bullnose and pressed steel top (PST) or burner pan


There is a natural gap between a unit's bullnose and pressed steel top or burner pan. This is normal.

  • Most food debris can be cleaned easily with the edge of a washcloth or towel.
  • A toothpick, toothbrush, or wrapping a thin utensil like a butter knife in a paper towel can also be used for cleaning further into the gap.
  • Using a can of compressed air to blow food debris out is another option.
  • Refer to Wolf Cleaning Reference or the product's Use and Care Guide for additional cleaning information.
  • In rare cases, a large spillover may require a technician to remove the unit's bullnose to thoroughly clean the unit.
