November 4, 2020 – Lawsuit, Two Related Cases Voluntarily Dismissed by Plaintiffs
The proposed class action detailed on this page and related lawsuits were voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiffs on April 17, 2020.
The stipulation of voluntary dismissal for the suit and the two related cases, all of which were consolidated in September 2017, can be found here.
A New York man claims in a proposed class action that Wolf Appliance, Inc. falsely advertises its high-end E, L and M Series built-in ovens to consumers. According to the complaint, certain Wolf wall or built-in ovens or ranges—which the case says can retail from between $5,000 and $17,195 depending on the model—come with a “signature” cobalt blue porcelain interior that can chip and crack after regular use due to the ovens’ self-cleaning function. Despite claims that Wolf’s ovens are “rigorously tested,” “built with superior-quality materials,” and designed to last for at least two decades even under heavier-than-normal use, the lawsuit alleges the ovens’ porcelain interiors are defective.
“As a result of the defect, the ovens do not satisfy several of the key purposes for which they were purchased, i.e. cooking food without damaging the ovens’ interior or causing risk of harm or injury to the user, providing an operable and ‘convenient’ self-clean feature and delivering ‘signature aesthetics’,” the lawsuit alleges.
The lawsuit proposes to cover a class of consumers who bought any of Wolf’s wall or built-in ovens or ranges, single and double oven models included, with porcelain interiors since June 21, 2017.
