Induction Cooktop Bridge


  • When was the bridge added to the Wolf Induction Cooktop?

Bridge elements provide a larger cooking area when in use.

  • The Induction Cooktop bridge zone provides an oblong heating area for use with a griddle, open roaster, or fish poacher.
  • All Bridge (36" Induction Cooktops and 36" Induction Ranges Only) should be used for cookware larger than 12" in diameter.
    • Cookware smaller than 12" in diameter will not work well.  The bridge does not produce an even heat, and may turn off if the cookware is not sensed by one of the generators.
    • Use the right rear element for best results when using cookware smaller than 12" in diameter.
    • The All Bridge feature will hook the four burners together, but there is no elements between the burners. Each hob will be a “hot spot,” and on each hob, the four coils will heat slightly differently.
    • Use a set-on griddle on a vertical or side-to-side bridge to achieve even heat across the surface of the griddle.
    • The bridge zone between two burners only will not have the hot spots that the all bridge feature has.
  • 30" Induction Cooktops and 30" Induction Ranges do not have the All Bridge feature.
  • The CI15T/S 15" Induction Cooktop Module does not feature a bridge element.

To turn on the bridge-zone heating element:

  1. Select the desired power level on one of the single elements.
  2. Touch Bridge between corresponding element controls to bridge elements front to back, BRG to bridge elements side to side, or All Bridge (36" Induction Cooktops and 36" Induction Ranges only) to bridge all elements.
  3. To change the power level, adjust the power level on any active bridged element.
    • If a horizontal or vertical bridge is turned on while another bridge is active, the bridge that was already on will turn off.
  4. To turn off, touch On/Off on any active bridged element.
