WOLF Gourmet Countertop Oven Elite is Perfection

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

I have to confess that I have coveted the WOLF Gourmet Countertop Oven Elite since I first saw it in person years ago. Having cooked on a WOLF range for many years, I know how incredible their appliances are, firsthand. I promised myself that I would one day purchase this countertop oven, and two events occurred that made me decide to finally take the plunge: it was on sale for Cyber Monday and my microwave died. Therefore, I decided to make this splurge of a purchase. We purchased ours online at Crate & Barrel and picked it up in the store and it was easy and fuss free. In fact, there was no need to fight holiday crowds in the store or driving in circles seeking a parking spot. We simply arranged for pickup and it was placed in our car curbside. Easy peasy!
I should state upfront that this is no toaster oven, instead this is a legitimate oven made with all of the precision one expects from WOLF appliances. You can cook full meals including whole chickens and anything else you can imagine. I have baked cakes, roasted vegetables and cooked full meals in this workhorse of an appliance, and can cook just about anything that I could cook in my WOLF range in this countertop oven. You can't fit a huge turkey in it because it isn't big enough, but it will allow you to cook a lot more of your holiday dinner if your stove and oven are at capacity. It is a very efficient oven, and has a maximum temperature of 450° F. It has all of the stylings of WOLF appliances, including their iconic red knobs. It is heavy, well made and nothing short of extraordinary.

This is an efficient way to reheat food, cook quick meals, bake, broil, toast and so much more. I am utterly smitten with this oven, and I am using it on a daily basis. I have also used it in conjunction with my WOLF range, and it cooks just as efficiently, but it uses far less energy to do so, but if I need to cook above 450° F, which I never do, then I would need to use my range. It also has a nice tight seal, like the large ranges and wall ovens, that prevents heat loss, and an efficient halogen light that can be turned on without opening the oven.

It has a very effective confection cooking feature, and this beauty has 7 cooking modes: Bake, Roast, Broil, Warm, Proof, Bagel and Toast. 

I must underscore the fact that this is an actual oven, and you want to make sure that you don't keep it too close to the wall while it is on. I have mine on a countertop beneath a cabinet, and I just make sure that there is space between the oven and the wall. 

What’s Included: In addition to two removable easy-glide oven racks, this countertop oven includes a temperature probe, baking pan with broiling rack insert, removable crumb/drip tray, red knobs and a use and care guide. Additionally, WOLF has a 5 year limited warranty on this oven.

A Wolf Oven in Countertop Form: Get the precision, quality, and look of a Wolf oven in one countertop-friendly appliance. The elite countertop convection oven boasts heritage Wolf features like interior lighting, advanced convection, temperature control, and an integrated temperature probe.

7 Cooking Modes: Seven cooking modes – Bake, Roast, Broil, Warm, Proof, Bagel and Toast – offer the cooking flexibility to make everything from cheesy garlic-parmesan crostini to broiled lamb chops.   

Advanced Convection Cooking: Unique perimeter convection thoroughly circulates heated air for even baking and faster cooking, reducing cooking time by up to twenty-five percent. Convection can be used in roast or bake mode with a simple press of the button.

Integrated Temperature Probe: Cook an herb-crusted roast, balsamic-glazed chicken, or a sourdough boule to your preferred internal temperature. The probe gives you precise control over the temperature of your food without opening the oven door. Keep an eye on the oven temperature as well as the probe temperature on the LCD display.

High-Performance Temperature Control: Temperature is finely tuned and uniquely calibrated for the best cooking performance in each cooking mode. Intuitive controls allow for simple selection of cooking mode, time and function. Five heating elements and advanced electronics deliver more even cooking performance for baking, broiling and roasting every time.

Interior Halogen Light: The interior halogen light gently illuminates the countertop oven’s interior, so you can quickly and easily see how your food is progressing without having to open the door.  

Two Easy-Glide Oven Racks: Sized to fit quarter sheet pans and most 9” x 13” stoneware dishes, each oven rack slides in and out smoothly, putting your food within reach easily and safely just like a Wolf range. Three rack positions offer flexibility for broiling, baking, and toasting.

Easy to Clean: Drips and splatters wipe away effortlessly from the BPA and PFOA free nonstick interior. Now the entire oven rack system is fully removable, simplifying the cleaning process. The stainless steel crumb/drip tray also slides out for easy cleaning and is dishwasher safe. 

Overall Assessment: It is no exaggeration to state that this is the best purchase that I made this year. I am utterly smitten. Keep an eye out for special prices and sales this season because this oven is worth having– especially if you can get it on sale! A+

  1. Congratulations on your new Wolf purchase and enjoy using it! My friend has a Wolf range, and she cooks/bakes very often and loves it. Having a countertop sounds like a wonderful and electricity-saving alternative!

    1. Thanks, Allison! It was such a great purchase– especially since I got it on sale for a much more approachable price! It is already proving to be a very worthwhile purchase because it is getting used every single day!

  2. You've officially made me jealous. This sounds like a delight. Not having to turn on my stove for a small dish would be great. As my mom would say "Use it in good health".

    1. It really is a delight, Marcia! It was, without question, the best purchase that I made this year. Plus I got an impressive discount because it was on sale for Black Friday/Cyber Monday. I knew that if I was ever going to splurge, it was the time to do it. I have literally used it every single day since I opened the box. It really is so much more energy efficient than turning on my big oven all of the time! Thank you, I am using it in good health. <3
