Possible Cause What to Do
Outside of Oven - Food has high moisture content or local climate (temperature, humidity) is contributing to condensation. Condensation is normal. You can wipe the drops off the control panel. If there is frequent or excessive condensation, make sure that cabinetry around the cooker is moisture-proofed.
Surrounding Walls or Overhead Rangehood - This is a normal for induction cooking.
Energy efficient technology means that no heat is lost to surrounding surfaces.  This results in condensation forming on these cooler surfaces when steam is produced by cooking.

This is normal for induction cooking and does not indicate a fault.
To minimise condensation:

  • Ensure adequate ventilation when cooking.
  • Switch your rangehood on 5 minutes before cooking and let it run for at least  minutes after cooking.
  • Use your rangehood on a lower speed setting when boiling.
  • Use the cooktop on a lower heat setting when boiling.
  • Use pot lids to stop moisture from escaping.
  • If condensation forms, wipe down surrounding walls and cabinetry as needed.
Inside the Oven - Food in your oven releasing moisture as it cooks
  • Allow the grill element to preheat for 5 minutes before placing food in the oven or  try cooking on Fan Grill instead.
  • Cook in a sealed bag or use the correct settings witch my oven a vent to release the moisture.
