3-oven AGA Total Control
With iconic AGA good looks and control at the touch of a button, this model has fast heat-up times, ovens and hotplates that can be operated independently, is programmable and has a slumber setting.
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.
How an AGA Total Control works
Manual (you choose)
Each zone (an oven or a hotplate) can be operated individually in manual mode. Any zone selected will remain on until switched off.
TCA Touch Screen Control Panel Slumber (ovens only)
In this mode all three ovens are active, pre-set at a simmering heat. Slumber setting is ideal for slow cooking and giving a gentle heat into the kitchen, creating that unmistakable ambient AGA warmth. When the ovens are in slumber mode, they take less time to reach full heat.
Auto (ovens only)
Selecting the auto function brings selected ovens up to full heat from off automatically when a programme is set. The ovens can be selected to operate once or twice each day, with the start and finish time of the 'cooking cycles' set by the user.
Auto slumber (ovens only)
Choosing this setting automatically brings the ovens up to full heat from slumber mode.
C - Control panel
Boiling plate - The boiling plate is on the left-hand side. It is the hotter of the two hotplates. From cold, the boiling plate takes approximately 12 minutes to reach its operating temperature.
Simmering plate - The simmering plate is on the right-hand side. It is the cooler of the two hotplates. From a cold start, the simmering plate will achieve its operating temperature in about 10 minutes.
Simmering oven - The AGA Total Control simmering oven is ideal for slow cooking, allowing flavours to develop and making even the toughest meats tender. Its large capacity allows several pans to be stacked and a number of dishes to be cooked simultaneously. From a cold start, the simmering oven takes around 45 minutes to reach its operating temperature.From the slumber setting, heat-up time is unchanged.
Baking oven - A moderate oven for baking cakes and biscuits cooking fish, lasagne or a shepherd's pie, the AGA Total Control baking oven is truly flexible. And cooking sweet and savoury dishes together is no problem as the flavours do not mix. From a cold start, the baking oven takes around 22 minutes to reach its operating temperature. From the slumber setting, this is reduced to approximately 15 minutes.
Roasting oven - The roasting oven on the AGA Total Control grills, roasts and bakes bread beautifully. But new technology means it is possible to use only the roasting oven or to use it alongside either or both of the other two ovens. From a cold start, the roasting oven takes around 35 minute to reach its operating temperature. From the slumber setting, this is reduced to approximately 15 minutes.

If you like the 3-oven AGA Total Control, you may also like 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 hoplates 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)
