Wolf Cookware Recommendations


  • What cookware is safe to use in the Oven, Microwave Oven, Convection Steam Oven?
  • What pots and pans are recommended for use with Wolf?
  • Does Wolf recommend a specific brand of pots and pans for Wolf products?
  • Gray or silver residue left on burner grates
  • Can you leave pots on top of a cooktop when not in use?
  • Can a hot pan be placed on the Induction Cooktop?


Wolf does not have a specific cookware brand recommendation for Wolf products.

Glass cooktops:

  • Pots can be left on a non-induction cooktop.
    • Since induction works along with having a pot on the surface, leaving pots on an Induction Cooktop is not recommended.    
  • Sliding pans back and forth over time may cause increased scratching of the glass top surface. There is no solution for scratches on glass cooktop.
  • A hot dish or pan from the oven can be placed on the Induction Cooktop surface. It will not cause any damage to the glass or elements.

Gas cooktops:

  • Stainless and other metal cookware will leave white or silver residue on burner grates; this is considered normal.


  • Convection modes in Wolf Ovens use airflow to distribute heat evenly. Containers with lids, or baking sheets with edges will block that airflow, eliminating the advantages of convection.
