3-oven AGA Dual Control
The gorgeous electric 3-oven AGA Dual Control runs entirely on electricity and has cast-iron ovens, which use radiant heat to provide great results and that indefinable AGA warmth in the kitchen. The hotplates can be switched on and off as required.
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.
HOW AN AGA DUAL CONTROL WORKS
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 12 minutes from cold. The simmering plate will be ready to use in around 10 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 heat 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 heat setting it is possible to reach full oven cooking heat in around two to four hours.

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.

AGA DUAL CONTROL
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 recommend 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)
Economy Mode (Low)
The Economy mode (Low) heat saving is achieved through dropping the roasting oven to below 200°C. The temperature of the other ovens will also reduce.
