Wolf vs Thermador 48inch range

drboubaMarch 12, 2012

Does anyone have any strong feelings on these brands in comparison? We are thinking about a 48 dual fuel range (thermador would be the pro grand commercial, NOT steam thermador) and they seem fairly comparable. Wolf seems to have a secure hold on the luxury market these days but Thermador seems to make a great product as well. The Thermador has higher BTUs on its burners and the ovens seem like they basically do all the same things.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The big things that stood out for us were that the Thermador simmer entails the burners clicking on & off over & over & over--gets very annoying especially if your kitchen is open to your family room vs. the Wolf that has the double stacked burners that are able to simmer using a continuous low flame. As far as the ovens, I can only comment on the Thermador--don't know if it's still a problem, but after about 5 years, the control panel slowly dies until you can't see what you have set the ovens to and you cannot see the time or timer anymore & the self-clean fried the electronics (as has been reported on many self-clean ovens). Even though the control panel issue has happened to many, many customers Thermador does not acknowledge the problem so you have to pay for the part + an authorized tech to come out 2x to verify that's what's wrong, then order the part then 2nd visit to install. Other than those issues, it bakes, roasts & broils beautifully.

Have you looked at the GE Monogram rangetop? It has the higher power burners (all burners vs. having different BTUs on different burners) + it has the double stacked burners and allows for super low simmering like the Wolf. That's why we opted for Monogram and love it so far!
