Wolf Cooktop Weight Limits


  • Is there a weight limit for the electric and Induction Cooktops?
  • Does Wolf have weight limits for the Gas Cooktops?
  • Would canning be too heavy for a Wolf cooktop?
  • Maximum weight for cookware and food on Wolf cooktop


Weight limits for electric and Induction Cooktops are determined by the size of the cooktop glass.

  • The following weight limits include the weight of the pot/pan and the liquid/food.
  • The amount of liquid affects the time it takes to boil.
  • The weight limits generally allow for the safe canning of quart jars, see Canning Food with Wolf Products.
  • Pans with oversize bases that extend beyond the cooktop frame should not be used.
  • On high settings, heat may be trapped beneath oversized pans causing permanent damage to the surface finish.
