Can’t trust the Product
After the product was installed , in two weeks time a crack appeared all of sudden in between the glass which was not due to mishandling. It seems to be manufacturing issue. Called the company and they say I will have to pay the service fees if it’s not manufacturing issue. Cooktop is still under warranty and the issue is not due to mishandling. Can not resolve the problem as I don’t want to end up paying for something which has never happened by me. Cannot trust the product anymore.

Excellent cooktop - best game for money
This cooktop is absolutely perfect, cooks brilliantly every time, no start up issues with ignition, glass is easy to clean and looks mint in our kitchen Reno.
Got it to replace an old 86cm cooktop and this fits perfectly on its place. Dials are metal, not plastic and the wok burner is really powerful.
Terrible warranty service
Freshly install and use 1 day then major faulty on the biggest gas burner. Waiting for over 2 months and still waiting for parts. Ring up the company for warranty and got advice problem maybe fix next month but cannot give exact time or whether it can be done.

Dangerous Flaws, MIA Service
I bought this expensive European-made Baumatic gas cooktop 3 - 4 years ago. Its glaring design flaws, the kind found ubiquitous in cheap made-in-China stuffs, combined with missing-in-action customer service command a review.
Soon after the first use, the igniter sometimes just kept on sparking even though the knob was no longer depressed and the burner has started burning. Sometimes, other igniters that were not in use joined in, i.e. more than one or even the entire 5 igniters were sparking incessantly. I had to disconnect the electrical p...ower to stop them and used a lighter instead. They returned to normal after a day or more on their own. But the most grievous flaw is the glass top. It is obviously the most fragile part but has to carry not only the heavy-cast trivets but also all the pots and pans and woks full of heavy liquid and foodstuffs. In this particular design, the combined weight does not spread out onto the bottom rims of the trivets but concentrate on 4 – 6 spots where the trivets rest on the glass via small rubber feet and metal rivets. The metal rivets were implanted into the glass via through-holes which weaken the glass, which is further weakened by heat during cooking, especially when several burners are going simultaneously. Yet, the glass is only 5 – 7mm thick, while toughened 10mm or 12mm glass panels are quite common. Yet, there is no support underneath the glass as I found out a week ago when the glass of my Baumatic shattered while cooking. Baumatic's Australian website does not provide any Customer Service number to call or online chats. Instead, we are told to email. I emailed them asking: (1) if the glass was replaceable; and (2) if so, how I could proceed. Days passed without any response. I emailed again asking only a simple Yes/No question as to not baffle: Is the glass replaceable? I have yet to receive a reply. I have bought another brand's cooktop.
POOR GLASS QUALITY
purchased it and enjoyed it for four years and then the glass just shattered from corner to corner while cooking. Customer service have no resolution for me. I have no faith in the brand, no follow up calls or responses to my email FOUR months ago - NOTHING
Purchased in March 2015 for $1,300.00.
Perfect cooking - easy to clean
Cooks fast, easy to clean and looks perfect in my kitchen with the oven, controls are metal, not plastic and I love the trivets are designed to hold a pot properly and not fall off. The 5 burner design is perfect with the wok burner on the side so you can still use everything else at the same time.
Best Cooktop Ever!
So happy I purchased this as an alternate to a builder's brand. Cooks fast, glass is easy to clean, cast trivets look great and are easy to clean. Even the whole cooktop is easy to wipe down. Looks brand new and I cook on it almost every day!
Built stronger than many other brands and the toughened glass is thicker than most other brands.
Cooks perfectly, cleans easily and doesn't feel like rubbish
Purchased at the beginning of the year, got it installed and have been really happy with it. Cooks well, heats fast, and it's easy to clean. Best part is the controls are not made out of plastic. Has not melted and peeled like my other cooktop which was only 2 years old!
I got this to match with my Baumatic oven, both are brilliant, they cook well, the cooktop is so easy to clean! Really happy with the trivet design as the previous cooktop the builder put in wasn't stable & I ended up tipping boiling water on the ground! Definitely a safety issue! This one has none of it, it's definitely not cheap and nasty!
Cooks well, easy to clean!
Purchased one to replace a Westinghouse that was rusting after being a year old! So much easier to clean, cooktop burner cooks really well, matches with my new oven I purchased so I'm really happy with it! The 5 burner design is definitely well designed to fit 2 large pots and a small pan across it!
Baumatic Studio Solari Cooktop - Black glass, perfect design
Purchased one as part of a Baumatic cooking package, looks and works brilliantly in the kitchen. Easy to clean, easy to use, does not scratch easily either. Still looks as good as new from the day I purchased it. Burners cook well and the flame works well. The dual ring burner/wok burner design on the left is excellent for fitting as many pans as you possibly can! Controls are made of metal and not plastic - has not melted as such! I'm happy with this purchase.

These reviews are deceptive and fradulent. The reviewers have all supposedly purchased hundreds of kitchen appliances between them over the last five years. They leave all 5* reviews for Baumatic products but negative reviews for other brands like LG and Fisher & Paykel. I would never trust a brand that deliberately misleads consumers.
we are sorry you feel that way, we are a massive company that abide by the ACL so for us to do that would be fraudulent.
We would never deliberately mislead our customers.
Hundreds of kitchen appliances purchased by just six reviewers and they've all had 5* experiences with Baumatic but rate other brands at 1*? Really? Just how bad is your product if you have to engage in deceptive practices to get consumers to purchase it?
Our products are represented in many homes all over the world and are sold to many retailers around Australia.
For us to be deceptive is just incorrect
