The secret is cast iron. The indirect radiant heat within the ovens comes from all surfaces consistently, without the drying, direct heat present in the elements or flames of other ranges. It’s a gentle, even heat that locks in moisture, flavor, texture, and goodness—giving you the very best out of your ingredients. Ovens feature multi-function cooking - simply select the ideal position. For instance, grill on the top, bake in the middle and fry on the base. 4 • AGA TOTAL CONTROL RANGE COOKER Ingenious, multi-functional oven design People watching the AGA Total Control in action are usually shocked at its capacity. With oversized hotplates and ovens capable of holding a 28 lb. turkey, the AGA Total Control can cook an entire holiday meal, seamlessly and simultaneously. And, AGA cookware is designed with recessed lid handles so that saucepans can be stacked, making the AGA Total Control’s interior space even more incredible. QUICK TOUR OF THE AGA TOTAL CONTROL Ovens 1. Roasting Oven (465° F) Grill, roast, and bake gourmet-quality food. This new technology makes it possible to use it with or without the other ovens on. 2. Baking oven (365° F) A moderate temperature oven for baking cakes and biscuits, cooking fish, lasagna or a shepherd’s pie, the AGA Total Control baking oven is truly flexible. And cooking sweet and 2 savory dishes together is no problem as the flavors do not mix. 1 3 3. Simmering oven (212° F) Allows flavors to develop and makes even the toughest meats tender, similar to a slow cooker only better. Hot Plates Both the boiling plate (626° F) and simmering plate (392° F) are a generous 14 ½” wide, easily accommodating extra-large pans and multiple saucepans. That means you can prepare up to 6 dishes at one time—something you cannot achieve on the 6” to 8” cooktop elements of conventional ranges. Both simmering and boiling plates are 14 ½" in diameter AGA TOTAL CONTROL RANGE COOKER• 5 THE 10 COOKING METHODS Hot Plates Boil - Water boils rapidly on an AGA, and the 14 ½" boiling plate can accommodate multiple pans. Grill - Cook succulent steaks and chops on the boiling plate in the special cast-iron grill pan. Fierce heat sears the outside of the meat, sealing in flavor and juices while cooking the inside to perfection. Fry - Create fried or sautéed chicken that’s crispier on the outside and moist on the inside. Simmer - The simmering plate’s gentle heat is perfect for making sauces and soups. Stir Fry - For Asian cooking and fast stir fry, use the AGA wok on the boiling plate. Toast - Using the special wire toaster, make toast crunchy on the outside and fluffy in the middle. Toast sandwiches directly on the simmering plate. Ovens Roast - AGA roasts are superb. Shrinkage is reduced because there are no flames or elements to dry out the meat. Steam - In the slow cook oven, steam a sponge pudding to perfection. Steaming vegetables locks in their full flavor and nutrients. Bake - Like a traditional baker’s brick oven, the AGA roasting and baking ovens provide all-around, consistent heat to create feathery pastries, moist cakes, and perfectly baked breads. Slow Cook - Gentle, persistent heat helps you create richer, juicier casseroles, stews, and slow roasting or braising cuts of meat. 6 • AGA TOTAL CONTROL RANGE COOKER PROGRAM TO SUIT YOUR LIFESTYLE As the name implies, you have total control over how you cook, with no need for large knobs or dials. The sleek touchscreen panel and remote control allows you to operate the ovens and hotplates in any combination you wish, and program the times they turn on and off. Touch-screen Control Panel Manual Each zone (an oven or hotplate) can be operated individually in manual mode. Any zone selected will remain on until switched off. Slumber (ovens only) All three ovens are active, pre-set at a simmering heat. Slumber setting is ideal for slow cooking and providing your kitchen with a gentle heat, creating that unmistakable ambient AGA warmth. When the ovens are in slumber mode, they take less time to reach full heat. Auto (ovens only) Choosing auto function brings selected ovens up to full heat from OFF when a program 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. Remote Control Program the remote control handset to schedule the ovens to come on automatically for one or two cooking cycles per day, seven days per week.

The AGA has an extraordinary history. Each AGA range cooker is made at the historic Coalbrookdale foundry in England, a United Nations designated World Heritage Site. The Industrial Revolution began on this site in 1709 when Abraham Darby first used a new smelting process to manufacture cooking pots – just like the ones AGA still makes there today. For over 300 years our craftsmanship has been recognized throughout the world. Now part of AGA Rangemaster PLC, it is one of the few remaining cast iron foundries in the UK. The AGA Cooker was invented by Nobel Prize winner Dr. Gustaf Dalen, a world renowned Swedish physicist. Confined to his home after a failed experiment cost him his sight, Dalen was inspired to create a better, simpler, more efficient cooker for his wife Elma, who constantly had to tend to their old-fashioned stove. Dalen was determined to develop a cooker capable of every culinary technique which was easy to use and that guaranteed perfect results. The now famous AGA was born. In 1932 manufacturing also began in Britain. Today the AGA is solely made at the famous Coalbrookdale location in Shropshire, England. The AGA is more than a range cooker; it’s a way of life. Owners tell us their AGA adds heart and soul to their home. It’s impossible to think of any other household appliance that inspires such a level of loyalty and devotion and has such emotional resonance with owners. It is, without a doubt, simply a better way to cook. “During my career in advertising, I have sold scores of good products—all the way from IBM computers to Rolls Royce cars. The AGA cooker is the best of them all. I have been cooking on one ever since I graduated from the kitchens of the Hotel Majestic in Paris. I could not live without it.” – David Ogilvy, known as the King of Madison Avenue and the inspiration for the series Mad Men SPECIFICATIONS Three-Oven AGA Total Control B S C – Control panel B – Boiling plate S – Simmering plate C 1 – Roasting oven 1 2 – Baking oven Height 35 7/8 " 3 – Simmering oven 2 3 Width 38 7/8" Depth 27 1/2 " 3 oven 30-amp electric AGA Total Control approximate range cooker weight 880 lbs (1,135 lbs shipping).
