The Wolf Gourmet Countertop Convection Oven Reviewed
Let’s get this over with first – the first thing you need to know about this convection oven, is that it is fairly expensive.
However, there are some very good reasons as to why this unit comes at such a higher price than others on the market. The unit is available in three different color options to allow you to be able to match the colors to your kitchen. The unit comes in black, red as well as a very nice stainless steel design so that it appeals to greater number of people and so that it doesn’t look out of place in any kitchen environment.
Usability, functionality, and design
Rather than just having a convection cooking mode, this unit has six different modes that you can choose from to meet your cooking needs. The unit has a bake, broil, roasting, a warming mode, a proof mode as well as a toasting mode. To top it all off, this unit has three racks that can be moved between various positions in order to allow you to fit large baking items or more than one item within the space of the oven.
This unit is designed to be quite large, which is another reason as to why it has a greater price tag than many of the other units on the market. The design is meant to allow a pan that is as large as 9” by 13” to fit inside of it. This is quite big for a countertop oven, and if you don’t have a lot of room, you will definitely want to measure in order to make sure that this oven will fit where you want to place it.
This unit incorporates a fairly large door in its design. The door swings down, much like that of a traditional oven, and you may want to take this into consideration when you are measuring the space where you want to put the unit. The large glass panel allows you to be able to see virtually every rack within this oven, so that you can be sure that your food is being cooked properly and that nothing is being overcooked.
The design has a very strong fan, which circulates the air throughout the oven and allows all of your baking to cook evenly. In addition, there are vents in this oven which prevent virtually no hot spots in its interior while cooking, which makes for baking goods every time.
Great premium convection oven features
There are several premium features in this oven that you won’t find on many of the other ovens that are on the market.
This oven has an integrated temperature probe that allows you to check the internal temperature of meat, so that you can make sure that it is cooked properly before you take it out of the oven. There is also a display on the unit and a variety of buttons as well as dials that allow you to easily change the oven to suit your needs. One subtle thing about this unit that a lot of people may not notice is that rather than having an unstable set of screw-on legs, this unit sits on a stand. The stand has a lot of support for the corners of the unit and you shouldn’t have to worry about the unit tipping and falling over as a result.
If you are looking for something that is as safe as possible, you may also be interested in all of the many safety features that this unit has. The unit has a built-in spring in the door, which allows you to close and open the door in a smooth and safe fashion. There is a 4-hour automatic shut-off feature in this unit, which will shut the oven off if you accidentally leave it on. You will also like the fact that there is a crumb tray on the bottom to catch any spills, so that you can keep your fire alarm from going off and keep your oven nice and clean.
Quality and Extras
The interior of this unit is built using a non-stick material which makes it extremely easy to clean out. They really tried to make this unit as convenient as possible and even made the crumb tray within the unit dishwasher safe. In addition, you get a dishwasher-friendly pan with a broil rack so that you can cook things as you wish to cook them.
Probably the best thing about this unit is that it is made of quality materials. The manufacturer offers a 5-year limited warranty on this unit; it is going to be hard to find something with that long a warranty. and it is also going to be difficult to find a comparable oven with all these features built into the design.
Overall, if you can afford this unit, you certainly aren’t going to be disappointed with its quality.
This is a product that is among the best on the market and this unit will work well in both a commercial as well as a household environment. One thing about this unit is that it doesn’t have a whole lot of side vents and therefore it may take a little longer to cool down unless you leave the door open.
With that in mind, it is hard to find a unit that is so easy to clean, so large in size and so nice in color and design. This unit is definitely one of them.
