The new Gas AGA Dual Control is everything you love about the AGA cooker, but with added flexibility and much reduced running and servicing costs.
The AGA Dual Control looks much like a traditional AGA cooker and - just like the traditional model - the cast-iron ovens are always available for use, creating that indefinable AGA warmth.
What's more, the two hotplates can be turned on and off independently. This means you can make a reduction in the overall heat input into the room from the cooker when desired and, in turn, reduce running costs.
HOW THE HOTPLATES WORK
Behind the top left hand door sits a small dial which operates either the boiling plate, the simmering plate or both. In each of the hotplates there is a powerful heating element. The boiling plate will be ready to use in around 11 minutes from cold. The simmering plate will be ready to use in around 8 minutes.
HOW THE OVENS WORK
As with all previous heat-storage AGA cookers, the cast-iron ovens are indirectly heated from a single small heat source, the heat being conducted across to each oven in exactly the correct proportions to provide the different cooking temperatures for roasting, baking and simmering. This provides kind-to-food radiant heat which locks in moisture and goodness. All three ovens have a new feature of a low energy setting, reducing the oven temperatures. This in turn gives a reduced heat output into the room and, naturally, a reduction in running costs. From this new low energy setting it is possible to reach full oven cooking heat in around two to four hours.
3-OVEN AGA DUAL CONTROL
B - Boiling plate
Boiling plate - The boiling plate is the hotter of the two hotplates.
Simmering plate - The simmering plate is on the right-hand side. It is the cooler of the two hotplates.
Roasting oven - roasts and grills beautifully and is big enough to fit a 13kg (28lbs) turkey. Radiant heat means food keeps its natural succulence and flavour.
Simmering oven - simmers perfectly by constantly maintaining the oven at just the right temperature for long, slow cooking. This develops flavours and will make even the toughest cut of meat melt-in-the-mouth tender.
Baking oven - heated to an ideal moderate baking temperature - ideal for cakes, biscuits and bread.
A large proportion of the energy is used via the hotplates on a Traditional AGA cooker, so by being able to turn them off, there is a significant saving to be made. The addition of the option to reduce the oven temperatures provides yet further potential energy savings.
