Cooktop Protector or Towel Use on an Induction Cooktop


  • Can a towel be used on an Induction Cooktop between the burner and the pot or pan?
  • Can a silicon pad be used on Induction Cooktop between the burner and the pot or pan?
  • Towel, silicon pad, or other barrier on an Induction Cooktop


Using a towel, silicone pad or other barrier between the pan and the burner is not recommended on Wolf Induction Cooktops because of the possibility of the pan burning the barrier and due to the decreased performance.

Take care when sliding cookware across the surface of the cooktop. Pots and pans with rough surfaces on the bottom can scratch the glass top. Refer to Induction Cooktop Cookware Suggestions for more information on cookware selection and use.

Refer to the product Use and Care Guide for further information.
