Nothing beats the breathtaking design, sturdy construction, and powerful cooking abilities of Wolf’s premium ovens. The only thing that can keep them from working properly is a lack of maintenance, which is why you need to know how to clean a Wolf oven the right way.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Mild soap
- Warm water
- Razor blade
- Spray degreaser or mild abrasive cleaner
- No-scratch Scotch-Brite™ pad
How to Clean Black Porcelain Wolf Oven
All of Wolf’s range models feature black porcelain coating in the oven interior. It looks great and protects well, but it can get damaged easily if you don’t clean your oven the right way.
Unfortunately, Wolf range ovens don’t have a self-cleaning feature, but you can follow our cleaning instructions below to get the job done just as easily.
The first thing to take care of is removing all of the baked-on food particles and larger debris from the oven cavity and window. Use your razor blade to gently scrape away any burnt-on food you see. Wipe away all debris using a damp cloth when finished.
Step # 2
Now that the food particles are gone, use your degreaser or mild cleaner to spray stubborn stains. Let the product soak in for a few minutes, then use a Scotch-Brite™ pad to scrub away the stains and residue.
Remove the oven racks and clean them separately using warm, soapy water and a non-abrasive pad. Turn your oven on to 500°F for two hours, then allow it another few hours to completely cool down. Do one more wipe down with mild soap and warm water, and you’re done!
Prevention is the best defense against oven interior damage and the need for frequent cleaning. Don’t allow acidic food spills or anything with high sugar content to heat on the protective coating, as this can leave a dull spot. And never clean the black porcelain while it’s still warm to prevent cracking.
How to Clean Blue Porcelain Wolf Oven
Wolf’s wall ovens distinguish themselves by using a bold blue porcelain coating that looks fantastic, which is why you need to protect it. The process for how to clean a Wolf oven with a blue interior is similar to cleaning the black version, with only a few minor changes.
Carefully use a razor blade to remove all stuck-on food particles from the oven interior. Wipe away with a wet rag when finished.
Use a degreaser or mild cleaner to spray any remaining burnt-on spots or stains. Scrub with a Scotch-Brite™ pad if necessary, but no need to remove every last bit. Wash and dry the oven interior with warm water, mild soap, and a clean cloth.
Wolf built-in ovens and dual-fuel ovens do have a self-cleaning feature. Now that all of the food particles have been removed, you can safely start the self-cleaning cycle. Use a damp cloth to wipe away the ash leftover once the oven has completely cooled down.
Many of the same maintenance procedures apply to the blue porcelain coating. Don’t let high-sugar spill heat up on the oven coating, and always wait until it’s cooled off to wipe the interior surface. Also, do not use a steamer to clean your Wolf oven interior.
