Tip for Wolf Stove owners - More BTU's

Unscrew the little brass jet tip and drill the 1/16th hole to 5/64th. Replace and that burner is now converted from 16,000 BTU's to 20,000 or 22,000 BTU's.

Safe and easy. I did it to my Wolf stove years ago and finally got around to doing it to my Rangetop. The low, simmer and medium settings still work just fine, but you'll get big juice on high.

It's great to have one very hot burner for Wok cooking, boiling big pots of water for Lobster or Crab, etc.

  1. Really? This is huge! I've been so disappointed with what passes for "high" on my Wolf. Chefs come over and ridicule it. And I'd just given trying to really sear something. Can't wait to try.

    1. re: jane

      Yep. I'm no technician myself but a third party Wolf service guy did it to one of my burners 12 years ago. I finally did it to my Rangetop today and sorry I didn't do it earlier...I'm actually considering doing it to all of the jets, but I'll start with the one and decide if there are more to come or not. You can also buy a replacement copper jet for about $2.40 so if you ever want to switch it back for warranty reasons, etc. you can. Oh, and enjoy your *New and Improved* Wolf!
