Cleaning a new Wolf Range :-(

DeborahC | Feb 21, 2013 02:24 PM

Let's talk cleaning Wolf Ranges...because I never read this until I own one- a 48" DF, with pretty red knobs and blue interiors.

Did you know:

Wolf expects the owner to wipe up all spills and splashes right after cooking or using the ovens-as soon as it cools? Otherwise, the splashes will stain the grates, dull where the splashes occur on the pans under the grates, and in the ovens. They expect you to scrape the interiors with a razor blade after it is sprayed with a grease remover to remove all food splashes and anything baked on, then wash the interior with soap and water, and dry BEFORE you put on the self cleaning feature...or the blue glass will be etched by the food residue. I'm stunned.

They warn against using any abrasives on anything. They ask that one uses an oven cleaner on stubborn spots only as a last resort.

They say that the windows need to be scraped with a razor first and then cleaned with window cleaner on both not spay the spray directly on the window, because the moisture could get between the two panes of glass.

I'm horrified. I thought that the beautiful range would enhance my life...and today, I spent a few hours scrubbing oh so lightly, with non-scratch blue sponges, the stubborn spots that did not come off perfectly with the razor.

Anyone else know this? ...or find this crazy? How about your nice range?
