AGA 3 Series eR3 90-3i
At just 90cm wide, this cooker packs in two cast-iron ovens, one for roasting and baking, and the other for simmering.
It also has an AGA hotplate, which can be set to boiling or simmering, a useful tall warming oven and a state-of-the-art two-zone induction hob with a bridging feature.
As with every AGA cast-iron cooker eR3 90 puts useful heat into the room, meaning you get that lovely, cosy AGA warmth.
The new electric AGA eR3 90-3i offers everyday control and boasts a host of useful features, including a patented hotplate, an optional timer and higher temperatures and better performance than many other range cookers on the market. Great attention has been paid to even the smallest of details, such as the stylish and branded handrail, ensuring this is a cooker that is built for life.
The hotplate operates using a powerful heating element and can be set to either the boiling or simmering setting. Around the outside of the actual hotplate is a further usable cooking area. This area can be used to simmer on when the hotplate is set to boil, and as a warming plate when the hotplate is in simmering setting. When set to boiling setting the hotplate reaches temperature in around 15 minutes from cold, while the simmering setting reaches temperature in around 12 minute
Boiling function - The boiling plate is the hotter of the two settings. From cold, the boiling plate takes approximately 15 minutes to reach its operating temperature.
Simmering function- The simmering plate is the cooler of the two settings. From a cold start, the simmering plate will achieve its operating temperature in about 12 minutes.
This new AGA induction hotplate features a two-zone large pan area suitable for two pans, or an induction suitable with a griddle plate, fish kettle or other large cookware.

This cooker has two cast iron ovens located on the left hand side and controlled by rotary control, as well an additional option of a programmer/timer device for the top oven. Using the control knob on the far left of the top plate, the top oven can be set to roasting, baking or the off setting. The roasting and baking settings can be achieved from cold in around one hour. The lower simmering oven can also be up to full temperature in around one hour. The baking setting will provide a 'warm to touch' feel.
Tall warming oven
The new tall warming oven is located on the right of the cooker and is operated by a separate switch on the top-right. The warming oven features a large plate rack, which can hold 12 large dinner plates for warming prior to serving, and the shelf accommodates half size AGA roasting tins and baking trays. The tall warming oven also provides space for keeping saucepans warm and could be used as built-in storage space when not in use.
Warming oven - The warming oven is heated by an element and is turned on using a separate switch on the top right of the appliance.
Roasting setting- Roasts and grills beautifully and is big enough to fit a 13kg (28lbs) turkey. Radiant heat means food keeps its natural succulence and flavour.
Baking setting- Heated to an ideal moderate baking temperature - ideal for cakes, biscuits and bread.
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.
Warming oven - Designed to warm plates and serving dishes, to rest meat before carving and to keep food warm, prior to serving, for a limited period of time. Food should not be left in there indefinitely and certainly not for any longer than two hours.

AGA 3 Series Running Costs
All of our new generation of AGA cookers are designed to conserve energy, they have much more control and allow individual operation of ovens and hotplates. Patents cover these unique cast iron hotplates and ovens. These new AGA cookers consume less energy compared to other heat-storage radiant heat range cookers. The hotplates are designed to heat up within 10 to 12 minutes, we therefore reccommend that there is no need to leave the hotplates on 24/7, they will heat up very quickly when required everyday. If you do leave a hotplate on with the lid down, the boiling plate can cost 7-8 pence per hour, the simmering plate 3-4 pence per hour (based on 14p per kWh)
