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.
How the hotplates work
The hotplate operates using a powerful heating element and can be set to either boiling or simmering setting. Around the outside of the actual hotplate is a further useable 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 11 minutes from cold, while the simmering setting reaches temperature in around 8 minutes.
How the ovens work
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.
- Roast & Simmer
- Bake & Simmer
BP/SP) Boiling/Simmering plate - The boiling plate will rapidly bring water to boil for that quick pasta supper. The simmering plate heat is gentle for delicate sauces and heating milk.
1) Roasting oven - The roasting oven grills, roasts and bakes bread beautifully.
1) Baking oven - A moderate oven for baking cakes and biscuits cooking fish, lasagne or a shepherd's pie. And cooking sweet and savoury dishes together is no problem as the flavours do not mix.
2) Simmering oven - The simmering oven is ideal for slow cooking, allowing flavours to develop and making even the toughest meats tender.

"On when you need it, off when you don't"
Since the launch of the AGA Total Control in 2011, there have been electric AGA cookers that can be 'on when you need them and off when you don't'. The AGA 60 is the latest addition to the collection of new-generation AGA cookers. The technology used means you are only using energy when you need it, while also enjoying all the benefits of radiant heat cooking.
As the AGA 60's hotplates and ovens can be turned off by the control knob you are reducing the amount of energy used, providing further potential energy savings.
Energy Consumption Test
Rigorous testing of the AGA 60 has been undertaken to assess the energy consumption under different conditions of use. The test is based on the same standard menu used for the AGA Total Control and AGA Dual Control to measure energy consumption. Below is a table, which represents one week of typical usage. The findings from this testing are approximate and will depend on ambient conditions, mains voltage supply and variability in manufacturing assembly.
|Day||Meal||Food Cooked||Zones used|
|Monday||Dinner||Left over meat
Jacket potatoes and vegetables
|Tuesday||Dinner||Chicken Enchiladas||Boiling Plate
|Wednesday||Dinner||Pizza and oven chips||
|Thursday||Dinner||Pasta with chicken sauce||Boiling Plate
|Friday||Dinner||Shepherds Pie and vegetables||Boiling Plate
Cooked breakfast plus kettle
Soup plus kettle
Curry, rice and Naan bread
Croissants plus kettle
Cheese on toast plus kettle
Boiling Plate and Roasting Oven
The energy consumed over one week for this test was around 35kWh. Clearly there are even greater savings to be made if only the top plates are used (during warmer periods of the year for example) with the ovens turned off.
NB – The AGA 60 requires a 32amp connection.
