With this range, you have these dual-stacked, sealed burners with two tiers of flame ports – one delivering higher heat and the other for lower heat settings. And the best part about these settings is that you can turn it up to a high searing heat or you can instantly have the merest breath of flame for simmering without boiling.

And unlike some ranges and cooktops that switch the flame off and on to maintain low temperature, Wolf features True Simmer, which means there is a consistent low flame, giving you a more consistent temperature and more delicious dishes.

Now these settings come in super handy where you need both the boiling and simmering functions. Like with this soup, you’ll first let it come to a boil, allowing the flavors to come together. Then you can throw in your fresh tortellini and let those babies simmer until they’re cooked through.

From there, you’ll have an amazingly hearty, creamy soup, bursting with cheesy goodness from those tortellini bites, wonderfully complemented by a handful of croutons. And no, I won’t be judging if you add extra croutons – I just ask that you add as needed to avoid sogginess! You’ll thank me later for it.
