  • Excessive smoke while broiling
  • Smoke coming from oven in Broil Mode


Excessive smoke coming from the oven during broiling may be caused by:

  • A pan other than two-piece broiler pan being used.
  • Failure to trim off extra fat from meats.
  • To mitigate this, use a lower rack position or shorten the broiling time.
  • Refer to Wolf Cooking Guide in product Use and Care Guide for further information. The cooking chart is a guide. Recipe or package directions should take precedence.
