Why are oven doors and hobs too hot to touch?
They get hot due to the heat transfer from the element. All our products comply with Australian and New Zealand standards.
Why does the oven light always come on when the oven is turned on?

Can my electric wall oven be rear vented?

Is it normal for my oven’s fan to run after the oven has been turned off?

What can I do to ensure the best results when cooking with my induction cooktop?
There are many factors that can affect cooking, but you can help ensure best results by following these recommendations:
- Use heavier, high-quality cookware that is suitable for induction cooktops.
- High-quality cookware that is heavier and has a flat bottom will help your food cook more evenly.
- Adjust the recipe's suggested temperature or cooking time.
Your induction cooktop provides exceptional temperature control that allows you to adjust heat with greater accuracy than gas or electric cooktops, especially at lower settings. Perfect for melting chocolate and cooking delicate foods and sauces.
I see discoloured areas on my electric or induction cooktop that have a metallic sheen. How can I prevent or remove these?
Discoloration that has a metallic sheen can be caused by mineral deposits from water and food. You can help prevent it by using cookware with a clean and dry bottom surface, and you can remove it with a ceramic/glass cooktop cleaning cream.
What sized saucepan can be used on a ceramic cooktop?
Up to 1 cm larger than the markings on the surface of the ceramic cooktop.
Why did the electric wall oven produce smoke when it was first used?
The smoke is caused by the protective oils left on the appliance, these oils are removed after turning the grill to "high" for 10 minutes, and then the oven for 10 minutes.
Can I light my electronic gas cooktop manually if the power goes out?
Yes, there is no problem with lighting it manually.
How can I prevent scratches on my electric or induction cooktop?
Prior to using your cooktop for the first time, apply the recommended cooktop cleanser to the surface and buff using a nonabrasive cloth or pad. The special cooktop cleansing cream leaves a protective finish that helps prevent scratches and abrasions.
To further prevent scratches on your cooktop surface:
- Be sure that the cooktop and any pots, pans, or utensils you use are clean.
- If coarse particles (such as salt) come between your cooktop and utensils, scratches can result.
- Use pots and pans that have a smooth, flat bottom.
- Use cleaning materials that are recommended for ceramic/glass cooktops.
- Any small scratches that occur will not affect your cooktop’s performance, and will become less visible
