THE AGA COOKER SHOP

The iconic AGA cooker has been the heart of the home for decades. However, we know that since the AGA cooker was invented in 1922 there have been many lifestyle changes and it’s not always necessary to have the AGA cooker on all the time. That’s why we’ve developed some new flexible AGA models and now, an AGA cooker can really fit into every home and lifestyle.

AGA DUAL CONTROL

The 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.

Available in 3-oven and 5-oven models and in electric, or with gas ovens and electric hotplates. 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. The boiling plate and simmering plate can be operated at the turn of a switch via the discrete control panel and so are on when you need them and off when you don’t.

The new electric 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.

However, with an AGA Dual Control the ovens feature a new low heat setting and can also be switched off completely.

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.

AGA TOTAL CONTROL

The AGA Total Control is an AGA heat-storage cooker with greater flexibility for 21st century living – a British icon redefined.

It used to be a given that an AGA cooker was on all the time. Not so now, with the introduction of the AGA Total Control.

They look exactly the same as a traditional AGA cooker and food is cooked with the same gentle radiant heat. But underneath the enamelled cast-iron exterior, there lies state-of-the-art technology.

It is this advancement that allows the new generation AGA Total Control cookers – each running on electricity – to be turned on and off at the touch of a button and with fast heat-up times, ensuring the AGA Total Control is ultimately flexible.

Using the control panel, the hotplates and ovens* can be individually controlled and turned on manually when needed. Alternatively using the remote control handset, you can programme the cast iron ovens* to come on automatically for one of two cooking cycles per day, seven days a week.

You can still enjoy that indefinable ambient AGA warmth in the winter while managing the amount energy used. And in the summer months, you can choose to turn the AGA cooker off most of the time, cooking with individual hotplates and ovens when you require them.

3 OVEN AGA TOTAL CONTROL

At the heart of the electric AGA Total Control cooker is a touch-screen control panel which puts you in charge of how and when the cooker is used.

Discreetly housed behind the top left door, the nerve centre of the AGA Total Control cooker can be accessed directly or programmed via a remote control handset. Using the control panel, the hotplates and ovens can be turned on manually when needed. It’s so flexible – you can heat only one hotplate or both. You can opt to heat only the roasting oven, the baking oven or the simmering oven  or all three.

Alternatively using the remote control handset, you can even programme the cast-iron ovens to come on automatically for one or two cooking cycles per day, seven days a week. You can set the AGA Total Control cooker to provide the constant ambient warmth to the kitchen for which the AGA cooker is renowned.

5 OVEN AGA TOTAL CONTROL

Perfect for passionate cooks, large families or those with bigger kitchens, the brand-new 5-oven AGA Total Control series cookers feature roasting, baking, simmering, slow cooking and warming ovens.

Available as a standard Total Control model or with iTotal Control technology, the 5-oven AGA cooker occupies the same footprint as the 4-oven AGA and offers the same peerless cooking performance you would expect from AGA. The new slow cooking oven is perfect for dishes such as shoulder or leg of lamb, steamed puddings, casseroles and stocks.

AGA 60 – AN AGA FOR SMALLER SPACES

TRADITIONAL AGA 60 ELECTRIC

TRADITIONAL AGA 60 GAS HOB

The AGA 60 couldn’t be easier to use. With one control knob for the hotplates and another for the ovens, the cooker has been designed with simplicity in mind. The AGA 60’s roasting/baking oven can be programmed and can have up to three events programmed per day*. They operate using a timer similar to that used for controlling a central heating programmer. This means the ovens can be timed to come on and ready to cook when you are.

*Using the optional extra AGA 60 Programmer.

CELEBRITY AGA OWNERS

AGA COOKING HAS A WIDE APPEAL, TAKE A LOOK AT SOME OF THE MOST NOTABLE OWNERS

MARY BERRY

TV Chef and Food Writer

``I couldn't be without an AGA. They are brilliant. They are always on, so it tempts you to cook and they keep the house beautifully warmed and aired.``
Mary was recently a guest on the Chris Evans Breakfast show where she said ``I love cooking by an AGA, it's lovely to lean against and all of the family want to be there with me.``

MARCO PIERRE WHITE

Marco Pierre White – TV Chef and Food Writer

``It’s a much better way of cooking rather than an open gas or electric hob. In my opinion the AGA cooker is the closest you get to a professional stove. I’ve cooked on an AGA now for 20 years, always at home. But you know something, it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have one in a professional kitchen because they’re fantastic things and they are so strong. It’s like having a workhorse next to you.``

DAISY LOWE

Daisy Lowe – Model

``My AGA Total Control is very, very lovely. It's easy to use, makes food taste delicious and all in all I'm a very happy bunny. It's great having an AGA Total Control because I can turn it on and off. One of the best things it is that I could stick it in the island because my kitchen isn't very big. But I also go away a lot, so I won't be using energy when I don't need to and that makes me happy.``

MARY KING

Mary King – Equestrian

“We always eat together, except during the competition season, when Emily and I are away. Then, on a Saturday night, we often do our own thing. But during the week, if we’re not competing, we will always sit together and have supper. I think it’s really important.”

JAMIE OLIVER

Jamie Oliver – TV Chef and Food Writer

``I think the AGA makes people better cooks; they're generally technically better cooks because they understand cooking.``

GÉRARD DEPARDIEU

Gérard Depardieu – Actor

“Cooking with an AGA is fabulous ... and allows for little mistakes. And with an AGA, it is so easy to prepare dinner for 10 and still be around for your guests.”

The History Of AGA

AGA-01The History Of AGA

The AGA cooker is a heat storage stove and cooker, which works on the principle that a heavy frame made of cast iron can absorb heat from a relatively low-intensity but continuously burning source, and the accumulated heat can then be used for cooking. Originally heated by slow-burning coal, the Aga cooker was invented in 1922 by the Nobel Prize–winning Swedish physicist Gustaf Dalén (1869–1937), who was employed first as the chief engineer of the Swedish AGA company (Swedish Aktiebolaget Svenska Gasaccumulator, English Swedish Gas Accumulator, Limited). The cookers were first imported to Britain in 1929, and were first manufactured there under licence in the early 1930s. The cast-iron parts were first cast at the Coalbrookdale foundry in the 1940s, where they are still made by the Aga Rangemaster Group.

AGA /ˈɑːɡə/[1] is an abbreviation of the company name, Aktiebolaget Gas Accumulator.

aga_howitworks_226x225How Does an AGA Range Work

Beneath the classic looks of every AGA is a heart of cast iron: the entire cooker is an outstandingly efficient energy store, steadily transferring the heat from its core into its ovens and hotplates.

An AGA is always ready to cook instantly and there are no switches and dials because the AGA looks after itself. Thermostatic control maintains consistent temperatures while high levels of insulation within the outer casing and beneath the hotplate covers ensure that every AGA uses fuel economically. The AGA releases a unique source of gentle, friendly warmth into your kitchen.

Within the ovens, heat comes from all surfaces simultaneously, ensuring a kinder, gentler cooking process without the fierce direct heat found in conventional cookers. Another benefit of this is that this cooking process preserves food’s moisture, flavour and, most importantly, goodness. Ask any AGA owner and they’ll tell you that their food really does taste better and that they get brilliant results, every time.
