Countertop Oven Displays Incorrect Temperature

Topics:

  • Why does the display show 400 F in probe mode, when it was set to a higher temperature?
  • Why is the displayed temperature not the same as the temperature that was selected?
  • When cooking in probe mode, why is the displayed temperature lower than what was set?
  • Why is the WGCO100S countertop oven temperature low?

Steps To Verify Issue:

Situation A:

 

1. Bake or Roast mode; set the oven temperature to 450F, let oven preheat.

 

2. After the actual temperature is above 400F, plug the probe in. The displayed temperature may change from 450F to 400F but the oven will continue preheating to 450F.

3. When actual temperature reaches 450F, the unit will beep and preheat stops, but the display may show 400F instead of 450F. A manual temperature reading will show the unit is at the original setting of 450F.

Situation B:
1. Set temp to 450F, preheat. After preheat is complete, oven display shows 450F.
2. When probe is plugged in, the display may change to 400F, but measurement shows that actual temp is 450F, same as the original setting.

Answer:

When cooking in probe mode with a set temperature higher than 400 F, the display on the counter top oven WGCO100S may read 400 F instead of the higher temperature that was set. It will still heat to the temperature set by the consumer, but the display may not read the correct set temperature.

If this problem is noticed, the displayed temperature can be manually changed to show the original set temperature. After it is manually changed, the display should read the correct set temperature.

  • Using Wolf Gourmet products for the holidays

Answer:

The holidays bring friends and family together to share good times and great food. With Wolf Gourmet as a culinary companion, both preparation and presentation will surpass expectations. Give the gift of a lifetime of delicious memories.

Decadent Dessert

Your guests will be wowed by this gorgeous toffee-topped treat, a traditional New York style cheesecake blanketed with a layer of tangy sour cream and crowned with decadent toffee and toasted almonds.

A Slice of Perfection

From finely chopping almonds for the graham cracker and brown sugar crust to slivering the toasted nut to sprinkle over the toffee topping, the razor-sharp Chef's Knife effortlessly slices from thick to thin for flawless results every time.

Consistency Tops It Off

Swirls of decadent toffee start with five simple ingredients and the consistent, evenly distributed heat of the Wolf Gourmet saucepan. Whisk and stir the ingredients until a deep caramel brown toffee emerges; the beveled wall of the saucepan keeps the delicate mixture from sticking in corners and gently flared rim allows you to drizzle directly from the saucepan onto the cheesecake.

Hone and Sharpen Wolf Gourmet Cutlery

Topics:

  • What is the function of honing steel?
  • Howto sharpen and honeWolf Gourmet knives?
  • How frequentlyto hone or sharpen my knives?
  • There is no magnetization on my honing steel, is it defective?
  • Wolf Gourmet knife angle

Answer:

Honing steel helps to maintain the edge of the knife.

  • It is best for smoothing and realigning the blade to give best possible performance between sharpenings.
  • Steel is always magnetized, but under some circumstances, it may not be noticeable.
  • Knife steel magnetization will never go away under normal use.
  • To increase the magnetization of knife steel, rub the steel on a piece of very strong magnet to create a stronger magnetic field.

How often to hone:

  • Regular honing will maintain the edge for up to a year depending on use.
  • Once honing is no longer effective, have the knife professionally sharpened.
  • The factory-set angle is 12.5 degrees.
  • Sharpening to an angle other than 12.5 degrees will reduce the cutting performance of the knife.

How to hone knives:

  1. Stand the honing steel tip down on a nonslip surface.
  2. Touch the steel with the knife's edge as though cutting a very thin slice.
  3. Adjust the angel of the slice until the edge of the knife just starts to bite rather than slip down the steel.
  4. Lightly stroke the edge of the knife down the honing steel in a gentle arc, moving from heel to tip at a constant angle.
  5. Repeat a second time.
  6. Switch sides; follow same process to complete honing.

  • Countertop Oven Toast mode

Answer:

The Toast mode is best for toasting both sides of sliced bread and bagels.

    • Broil mode activates the top heating element and is great when toasting is required on one side only.

Toaster Does Not Toast Correctly

Topics:

  • Toast, bagel or English muffin shade is too light or too dark
  • Toaster does not toast evenly
  • Toasting is not uniform or is uneven
  • Toast is burned
  • One side of the bread in the toaster is darker than the other

Cause:

  • Grill wire or bread guide damaged
  • Settings not be appropriate for the bread type
  • Consecutive toasting cycles affect toast shade
  • Bread placement in the slots affects shading
  • Toaster not receiving enough power

Steps To Verify Issue:

Follow these steps to improve toasting:

  1. Verify the bread guides move inward in a vertical position to hold the bread.
  2. See that the 'Bagel' or 'Frozen' mode is selected and light illuminated if desired.
  3. If toast, bagel or English muffin is not browned enough:
    • Use the 'Frozen' setting to increase toasting next time.
    • Turn the toaster on for another cycle to increase toasting.
  4. Verify the bread is in the correct slots for the type of toaster (2-slice or 4-slice) and the number of slices being toasted.
    • The toaster is optimized to evenly toast 2 slices in a 2-slice toaster and 4 slices in a 4-slice toaster.
    • Toasting one slice at a time may cause variations.
  5. Verify that the toaster is receiving adequate power.
    • Underpowered toasters may not work correctly.
    • If too many appliances are plugged into the same circuit, the toaster may not be receiving an adequate amount of power.
    • The 2-slice toaster uses a maximum of 900 watts.
    • The 4-slice toaster uses a maximum of 1800 watts.
  6. Toasting will vary depending on many other factors, including but not limited to: type of bread, thickness of slice, additional ingredients in bread (raisins, cranberries, etc.), heat setting selected, ambient temperature in the room, how cold the freezer was (for frozen items), and so on.
    • The best way to determine the proper settings is to experiment with your preferred type of bread.

If any of the following are true, the toaster may need to be replaced:

  • Lifters are not moving properly and nothing is caught in them.
  • Some elements are not lighting up when unit is not in bagel mode.
  • Toaster is receiving adequate power, toast is in correct position, correct mode is selected, darkest toast setting is selected, and bread still will not toast.

Wolf Gourmet Countertop Oven Average Toast Time

Topics:

  • How long does it take the countertop oven to toast bread?
  • Why does my bread take so long to toast?
  • Why isn't my bread fully toasted on the darkest setting?
  • Why is my bread so dark on the lightest setting?
  • Average toast time

Answer:

For counter top oven (WGCO100S), the average times (give or take ten seconds) for room temperature bread to toast are:

Slices Setting Average Time
2 Slices 1 (light) 6 min 20 sec
2 Slices 4 (medium) 7 min 45 sec
2 Slices 7 (dark) 10 min 10 sec
4 Slices 1 (light) 7 min 15 sec
4 Slices 4 (medium) 8 min 10 sec
4 Slices 7 (dark) 11 min
6 Slices 1 (light) 7 min 45 sec
6 Slices 4 (medium) 9 min 30 sec
6 Slices 7 (dark) 12 min

 

The heating elements may not glow red even when they are emitting heat. Toast times can be affected by:

  • Temperature of the bread. If the bread was recently thawed or stored in a refrigerator, and is still cold, it will take longer to toast.
  • Ambient room temperature. If the countertop oven is used in a particularly hot or cold setting, this could affect how efficiently the elements heat.
  • Type/style of bread. A small slice of light white bread will toast faster than a hearty artisan/whole grain bread.

  • Store knives in Wolf Gourmet Storage Block, knife case, in-drawer knife block, sheath, magnetic bar, or back in their own packaging to avoid dulling the blade, chipping, or a potential injury.

Wolf Gourmet Toaster Average Toast Time

Topics:

  • How long does it take the toaster to toast bread?
  • Why does my bread take so long to toast?
  • Why isn't my bread fully toasted on the darkest setting?
  • Why is my bread so dark on the lightest setting?
  • Average toast time

Answer:

For toaster (WGTR102S & WGTR104S), the average times (give or take ten seconds) for room temperature bread to toast are:

Setting Average Time
Light 1 min 25 sec
Medium 2 min 15 sec
Dark 3 min 10 sec


These toast times can be affected by:

  • Temperature of the bread. If the bread was recently thawed or stored in a refrigerator, and is still cold, it will take longer to toast.
  • Ambient room temperature. If the toaster is used in a particularly hot or cold setting, this could affect how efficiently the elements heat.
  • Type/style of bread. A small slice of light white bread will toast faster than a hearty artisan/whole grain bread.

The Wolf Gourmet Toaster bagel setting toasts the cut side of the bagel and warms the opposite side.

  • To use, place the bagel in toaster with the cut sides facing together.

Wolf Gourmet Toaster Element Not Working Correctly

Topics:

  • One or more heating elements is not glowing.
  • One or more heating elements is glowing brighter than, or not as brightly as, others.
  • Toaster has no power or does not heat or toast.

Steps To Verify Issue:

Toaster element configuration:

  • A two-slice toaster has three heating elements: two outside heating elements, one each on the far left and right sides of the toaster, and one center heating element, in between the toaster slots.
  • A four-slice toaster has six heating elements: four outside heating elements and two center heating elements.

Normal operation of the toaster heating elements:

  • Please note the heating elements are designed so they will not glow bright red.
  • The center heating element(s) is(are) designed so they will not glow as bright as the outside elements because the center element uses a "double wound heating ribbon wrap." The outside element boards use a "single wound heating element wrap." This difference in winding configurations is done to ensure even toasting on both sides of bread.
  • The heating elements also are designed to operate differently in the various toasting modes:
    • In TOAST mode all elements are energized.
    • In BAGEL mode, only the center element is energized.
    • IN KEEP WARM mode all elements are energized during the toasting cycle, then they cycle ON and OFF for the 3 minute Keep Warm cycle.
    • In FROZEN mode all elements are energized. Note that if BAGEL and FROZEN modes are selected together, all elements are energized for 1 minute, then the outside element turns OFF and only center element is energized for the remainder of the toasting cycle.
  • See also, Wolf Gourmet Toaster Average Toast Time

To determine if your toaster is working properly:

  1. Plug in the toaster.
  2. Turn the toasting SHADE SELECTOR KNOB(S) to number 4.
  3. Place bread in all of the slots and push down on the bread lifter(s). The toaster should begin heating.
  4. Ensure that BAGEL mode is not selected as the outside heating elements stay off in this mode.
  5. If the lifter(s) will not stay down on its(their) own, but the elements begin to heat when you hold the lifter down, the problem is with the lifter(s), not the elements. See also, Bread Lifter Does Not Latch.
  6. If the toaster does not heat at all, it must be replaced.
  7. If the toaster heats, the lifter(s) do(es) stay down on its own, and the bread is brown (toasted) on both sides of all slices at the end of the toasting cycle, the toaster heating elements are operating properly.
  8. If the toaster heats, the lifter(s) do(es) stay down on its own, but the bread is not brown (toasted) on both sides of all slices at the end of the toasting cycle, the toaster heating elements are not operating properly. The toaster must be replaced.

Refer to the Toaster Use & Care Guide for further information.

Wolf Gourmet Toaster Frozen Setting

Topics:

  • Why use the Frozen setting on a Wolf Gourmet Toaster?
  • What does the Frozen setting do?
  • How does the Frozen setting work on a toaster?

Answer:

The Wolf Gourmet Toaster Frozen setting adds extra toasting time needed to accommodate frozen breads.

  • High sugar content foods, like waffles, brown more easily.
    • The Frozen setting lengthens the toasting time to allow for defrosting.
    • Try toasting without using the Frozen setting.
  • Bread products can easily dry out in the freezer.
    • If frozen products are in an open box or have been frozen for a long time, try toasting without the Frozen setting or choose a lighter shade setting.
  • The Frozen setting can be selected at any time.

  • Wolf Gourmet 2 Slice or 4 Slice Toaster making noise when not in use.

  • Should the toaster make noise when off?

Cause:

  • Improper electrical output

Steps To Verify Issue:

The Wolf Gourmet 2 slice or 4 slice toaster should not make any noise when not in use.

  1. Contact an electrician to have the output of the outlets inspected.
  2. Test the unit in an alternate outlet to see if the same issue occurs.
