How an AGA Cooker works

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. 

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 cast iron ovens, heat comes from all surfaces simultaneously, ensuring a kinder, gentler cooking process without the fierce direct heat found in conventional cookers. The benefit of this radiant heat cooking process is that it 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.

What goes into an AGA range cooker?


1. Insulated CoversAGA Hot plates are displayed

These twin insulated covers are the great AGA hallmark. When closed, they're just gently warm to the touch. Open them and both hot plates are instantly ready to cook.

2. Boiling Plate

Big enough to hold three average sized saucepans at once, the high heat of this boiling plate can boil water faster than most electric kettles.

3. Heat SourceAga _fuel _types

Once an AGA is up to operating temperature just a trickle of energy is all that's needed to keep it there. You can choose from natural gas, propane gas, electricity or oil.

4. Simmering PlateStainless -steel -lid -copy _178x 186

The simmering plate has a far gentler heat than the boiling plate, making it work wonders with sauces or when frying an egg. It holds three average sized saucepans and can also be used as a griddle.

5. Roasting Oven

This oven alone is big enough to cook for the whole household, with a space to accommodate a 13kg (28lb) bird. As versatile as it is spacious, it can also be used for grilling and baking.

6. Baking OvenAn AGA with cookware inside is displayed

Like all AGA ovens the cast iron interior holds in its heat tenaciously, so don't be afraid to open the door and take a peek at progress. Its moderate baking temperature is perfect for bread, cakes and biscuits.

7. Simmering Oven

You'll never taste meat that's as tender or flavoursome as meat that has been slow cookedAGA doors are displayed in this oven. Simply slide in your dish first thing in the morning, pull it out at teatime and enjoy the incredible results.

8. Warming Oven

Coming as standard with every 4-oven and 5-oven AGA cooker, the warming oven keeps food warm without drying it out – ideal when cooking a meal with numerous courses. It also gives you the added benefit of keeping plates warm.Dotted _line

TRADITIONAL AGA MODELS - Heat Indicator (Thermometer)

Oil filled traditional heat indicators are still used on oil and non-aims gas models. The Heat Indicator gives you a guide to the amount of heat being stored in the castings within the AGA. The gauge will drop when cooking because food absorbs the heat and the indication will take time to stabilise back to the Normal positionOn some models this is displayed electronically on the hand-set.
