The AGA Dual Control ranges offer everything you love about thetraditional AGA cooker with added flexibility and reduced runningcosts. Not only does the AGA Dual Control range use the sameindirect radiant heat as a traditional AGA cooker, it will provideup to a 30 percent savings in operating costs because you may nowsimply turn it off.
The AGA Dual Control ranges have been designed with simplicityof use and energy savings in mind. There is one control to operateboth hotplates and another to operate the individual ovens. If yourequire additional cooking space, the AGA Dual Control 5-oven modeloffers a third control which operates the additional two ovens andwarming plate.
The AGA Dual Control Gas model requires an external ventingsystem located in the rear of the range. The AGA Dual ControlElectric model requires an in-room low level vent located atop theAGA between the hotplates. A separate AGA range hood isrecommended.
AGA Dual Control - Natural Gas
Traditional AGA Cooker owners regularly express their love anddevotion for their AGA! It is no doubt the AGA's radiant heat, constant warmth anddependability is a welcoming addition to their home. But what doyou do if your AGA requires shutting off during the warmer monthsor when less cooking is required? Ever wish you could operate thehotplates separate from the ovens?
The new generation of AGA cast iron ranges give versatilitywithout sacrificing a long standing heritage of qualitycraftsmanship. The new Gas AGA Dual Control range offers cast ironradiant heat and now has the ability to turn the ovens off all thewhile enjoying the use of your hotplates. Even better, eachhotplate operates independently or simultaneously with a simpleturn of a dial.
Dual Control Electric
Like the gas model, the Electric AGA Dual Control has twohotplates - a boiling plate and a simmering plate - which can beturned on and off and operated separately or together using amulti-function control.
The roasting, baking and slow cook ovens can be dropped down toa new energy-saving "slumber mode" lowering energy costs whilestill providing comforting warmth. The benefit to having a slumbermode is you may bring your range to full cooking temperature injust a few hours. A Heat Indicator serves as a guide to the amountof stored heat within the AGA cast iron indicating when your rangeis ready-to-use or if in slumber mode.
How the Hotplates Work
Behind the top left door sits a small dial which operates theboiling and simmering plate - either independently orsimultaneously - using one multi-function control. The powerfulheating element works fast making the boiling plate ready for usein 11 minutes and the simmering plate ready in 8 minutes.
How the Ovens Work
As with the Traditional AGA Cooker, the cast iron ovens areindirectly heated from a single heat source. The heat is thenconducted across each oven in exactly the correct proportions toprovide the ideal cooking temperatures for roasting, baking,simmering, slow cooking and warming. This unique technologyprovides radiant heat which locks in moisture, natural flavor andgoodness every time you cook!
