  • The first few times the cooktop is used, it may give off a burning smell. This smell will disappear completely with repeated use.
  • The cooktop surface is fitted with cooking areas of different diametre and power.
  • The positions where the heat will radiate from are clearly marked on the cooktop. The saucepans must be positioned exactly on these zones for efficient heating to occur. Pans should have the same diametre as the cooking zone that they are being used on.
  • You should not use saucepans with rough bottoms, as this can scratch the ceramic surface.
  • Before use, make sure that the bottoms of the saucepans are clean and dry.
  • When cold, the bottom of the pans should be slightly concave, as they expand when hot and lie flat on the surface of the cooktop.
  • This will allow the heat to transfer more easily.
  • The best thickness for the bottom of the pans is 2-­3 mm of enameled steel and 4-­6 mm for stainless steel with sandwich type bottoms.
  • If these rules are not followed, then there will be a great loss of heat and energy. Heat not absorbed by the saucepan, will spread to the cooktop, frame and surrounding cabinets.
  • Preferably cover pans with a lid to permit cooking at a lower heat.
  • Always cook vegetables and potatoes, etc. in as little water to reduce cooking times.
  • Food or liquid that has high sugar content may damage the cooktop if it comes into contact with the ceramic cooktop surface. Any spillages should be wiped up immediately, however this may not prevent the cooktop surface from becoming damaged.


By ensuring proper cleaning and maintenance of your Esatto cooktop, you can ensure that it will have a long and fault free operation.

WARNING!        Do not start cleaning the cooktop until it has completely cooled.


  • Any residues that are left on the cooktop surface from cleaning agents will damage it.
    You should remove any residues with warm water mixed with a little washing up liquid.
  • Abrasive cleaners or sharp objects will damage the cooktop surface; you should clean it using warm water mixed with a little washing up liquid.
  • Although it is easier to clean some deposits whilst the cooktop surface is still warm, you should take care not to burn yourself if cleaning the cooktop surface when it is still warm.

After each use:

  • Wipe the cooktop over with a damp cloth.
  • Dry the cooktop by rubbing the surface with a clean cloth.
Type of deposit Remove immediately? Remove when the cooktop has cooled down? What should I use to remove the deposit?

Please read the issues below carefully and try all relevant steps.
If none of this helps, please contact us on 1300 11 4357 for further advice or to schedule a technician to inspect your cooktop.


Please check…
That your cooktop is plugged in and there is power to the wall socket.

If your cooktop has a Control Lock or Child Lock function, check that it is switched off.


Please note…
If the cooking zone has only been turned on for less than 30 seconds, the residual heat indicator will not appear.

If the cooking zone does appear to be hotter than 50°C or has been activated for longer than 30 seconds, and the residual heat indicator has not come on, please contact our Support Team on 1300 11 4357 for advice.


Please note…
This is normal–the sound will disappear when the zone heats up.

If the humming sound continues once the zone is fully at heat, please contact our Support Team on 1300 11 4357 for advice.


Contact our Support Team on 1300 11 4357 to arrange for a technician to visit.


Please note…
Scratches are often caused by using cookware with rough-edges. Please ensure pots and pans have smooth bases.


Ensure the child lock is disabled.


Please note…
This maybe caused by burnt on remnants of food. This will not affect the working of the appliance however you should make sure that the cleaning instructions are being followed regularly.


Please note…
Once it has cooled down, your cooktop should be cleaned after every use. Any residues that are left on the cooktop surface from cleaning agents will damage it. You should remove any residues with warm water mixed with a little washing up liquid.


Please note…
This is often caused by pots with aluminium or copper bases.

Please note that if an engineer is asked to attend whilst the product is under warranty and finds that the problem is not the result of an appliance fault, then you may be liable for the cost of the call out charge.


For future reference, please record the following information which can be found on the rating plate and the date of purchase which can be found on your sales invoice.
