Bertazzoni Vs. Wolf: Similarities & Differences
History Of Wolf Range And Oven
It was 1926 when Westye F. Bakke moved with his family from Northern Wisconsin to Madison in search of new opportunities.
In 1945 he passionately launched his first company with the name the Subzero freezer company, which helps to preserve food for a long period of time below zero degrees celsius.
In 2000 His company acquired Wolf which was a top residential company in the field of kitchen appliance manufacturing at that time. It was 2003 when the company launched its first dual fuel range.
In 2013 the company did many innovations and found some new ways to use kitchen appliances.
The year 2015 was so special for this brand because they introduce Wolf Gourmet at that time, an extensive collection of countertop appliances, cutlery, and cookware.
History Of Bertazzoni Oven And Ranges
The company was founded in 1882 by its founder Francesco Betrazzoni. The company is an Italian home appliance manufacturer based in Guastalla.
Its first factory was established in 1909 near the Guastalla railway station. Francesco and his son made a wood-burning stove in early 1907 and it was the first step to today’s modern kitchen cookware.
In 1950 they started using steel and other strong and aesthetic materials to beautify the design of their gas stove. In 1953 company introduced its first gas cooking oven to its product lineup.
In 1975 electric oven was introduced and the induction cooktop was introduced in 2005. Apart from cooktops, gas stoves, and oven, the company also focus on marketing the other kitchen appliances such as refrigerator, dishwasher, etc.

Ranges are available in these three categories:

Functionalities Of Wolf Ranges And Ovens:
Wolf ranges and ovens are better than the Bertazzoni in the terms of their craftsmanship, design, quality, and functionality.
Some of their excellent and interesting features are listed below:
- Some wolf ranges and oven models come with an iconic red knob that looks very appealing and can easily outfit your kitchen interior, and its internal surface is coated with cobalt blue porcelain which enhances its internal look as well.
- Wolf ranges and ovens have the fastest preheat time in this segment, which is hardly seen in other brands.
- Wolf ovens come with a large capacity, even its smaller 30″ range has enough capacity to bake any size turkey.
- It has an independent temperature sensor that keeps the inside temperature steady and consistent.
- The Wolf ovens have a very easy-to-use dial-control feature, which makes it easier for people who do not have much cooking experience.
- Its dampener and spring door system come with a great safety feature that keeps the doors from snapping closed and opening abruptly.
Functionalities of Bertazzoni Ranges And Oven:
- Bertazzoni ovens come with premium looks in a handy price range.
- Bertazzoni ranges and ovens come with several unique and eye-catching colors that can match your kitchen interior perfectly.
- In Bertazzoni you have full control over how much you are willing to spend for what features. The company has smartly designed its different categories such as Heritage, Master, and Pro series. These series come in a base model with basic features and a deluxe model with step-up features.
- The functionalities, durability, and performance-wise Bertazzoni ranges and ovens are not as good as wolf ranges and ovens.
Quality of burner
Both Bertazzoni and wolf ranges and oven comes with Brass burners. The main advantage of using a brass burner on the cooktops is it doesn’t change its shape and size when heated. It is rust-free and one of the best heat conductor materials available on the market.
Wolf offers a dual-stacked sealed burner with precise flame control. The advantage of having a dual-stack burner is, that it helps to achieve a super low simmer level. Even you can expect that much low simmer from its 20,000 BTU burners.
Quality of Grates
Grates of the oven are important to support your pots and pans when they are filled with food and cooked on a high flame. I found the wolf ranges and oven has top quality grate than the Bertazzoni. You can feel its quality when you take it in your hand. It is made of porcelain-coated cast iron with silicon feet. It is stretch resistance as well.
Quality of Door
Both the brands come with good quality doors and sturdy and strong door hinges. I found the Wolf offer much better build quality and material in its components than the Bertazzoni.
Wolf ranges and ovens will cost you much higher than the Bertazzoni because they deliver outstanding performance, and appearance, without compromising the quality of their product.
On the other hand, Bertazzoni has several different options to choose from some are professional and premium series, and others are classic and budgetary.
Wolf offers better after-sale services to its customers. Any problem you face with the ranges or ovens they are available 24*7 to assist you.
Whereas Bertazzoni offers 2 years of warranty on their products.
Wrap Up On Wolf Vs. Bertazzoni
Both the brands are worth investing in, however, I would go with the wolf ranges and ovens because of their high performance and superior build quality.
In Bertazonni, aesthetics are very impressive but the performance doesn’t match up to the beauty.
Wolf ranges and ovens will cost you much higher than the Bertazzoni. If your budget is tight and wants a decent range or oven under your tight budget then go with Bertazzoni.
