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


AUTOMATICALLY READY

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. undefined

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 11 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 8 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.

With AGA Total Control, the energy needed to cook can be reduced to under a fifth of that for the classic AGA heat-storage cooker; usage depends of course on how much of the time you choose to have it on or have it in slumber mode (from which the AGA has shortened heat-up times).

The amount of energy used in the summer compared to the winter may vary significantly due to use of the slumber mode and perhaps the type of food cooked in the winter compared to the summer months.

To enable some comparisons on running costs we have provided the following ‘typical’ energy consumption based on a weekly standard menu (see table below for details).

AGA Total Control cooker energy consumption when preparing and cooking a weekly menu:

Typical weekly energy used
1. Cooker normally OFF and only switched on to cook 35kWh
2. Cooker normally in SLUMBER and turned up to cook 75kWh
Typical 24hr energy used
3. Cooker on SLUMBER and turned up to cook 8kWh

A kitchen with an AGA Total Control cooker benefits from gentle residual heat when the cooker is turned off, as cast iron retains energy and only cools down over several hours to ambient temperatures.

All of the work has been undertaken by the AGA product team, all data has been fully verified by an independent third party.

PLEASE NOTE: Actual energy consumptions will vary greatly dependent on demand, weight of food cooked and even how ‘well done’ the food is required to be. The boiling of kettles on the hotspots will also affect total energy used, but the weekly menu covers limited boiling of a kettle.
