Health & Safety
Consumer Protection
As a responsbile manufacturer, we take care to make
sure that our products are designed and constructed
to meet the required safety standards when properly
installed and used.
Deep Fat Frying
IMPORTANT
•
•
•
•
•
Use a deep pan.
Never fill the pan more than one-third full of fat or oil.
Never use a lid on the pan.
Important: Oil is a fire risk, do not leave pans containing oil unattended.
In the event of a fire, cover the pan with a lid and turn
OFF the appliance.
Smother the flames on the range top preferably with a
fire blanket, rather than attempting to remove the pan to
the outside.
Burns and injuries are caused almost invariably by
picking up the burning pan to carry it outside.
•
Do not hang dish towels on the left hand side of
the AGA handrail. Doing so will block the air vent. Blocking the air vent can cause excessive temperature increase to the control panel and prevents easy access to the controls.
.
When the oven (s) are on DO NOT leave any oven door open for long periods, this will affect the temperature of the oven and may allow controls to
become hot.

Introduction
Made in the heart of Shropshire in the United Kingdom,
your AGA range, like the generations of ranges
before it, has been manufactured from cast iron at the
Coalbrookdale Foundry. Traditional iron-making skills
combined with industrial strength hotplate elements
enable the hotplates to heat up rapidly, so you can have
them both on, or just one on, depending on the time of
day or the size of your family.
The cooking excellence of the AGA range has been
famous since it’s inception in the 1920’s and is renowned
due to the indirect radiant heat that its cast iron emits
rather than just air temperature. And, if you haven’t found
out already, you’ll soon discover that food that is cooked
this way retains its natural flavour and succulence, and
simply just tastes better.
So grab a cup tea or coffee, have a read and prepare to
dig into some of the tastiest dishes you’re ever likely to
make.

A Brief Description - AGA DC3G
Simmering plate
Boiling plate
Top plate
Control door
Roasting oven
Baking oven
Slow cook oven
Roasting Oven
The hottest oven for high temperature cooking; pastries
breads, roasting of meat, vegetables and poultry, broiling
at the top of the oven and frying on the floor.
The AGA DC3G has traditional cast iron ovens with
independently controlled hotplates.
Hotplates
The two hotplates are at different temperatures; the
boiling plate being the hottest of the two and the
simmering plate is a lower heat. Each plate is individually
controlled.
Baking Oven
A moderate oven for cooking cakes and biscuits, baking
fish, lasagne or shepherds pie, plus roasting meat and
poultry at a medium heat. Cooking sweet and savoury
together is no problem as the flavors do not mix.
Boiling Plate
The boiling plate is used for making toast, boiling a
kettle, stir-frying and cooking at a higher heat.
Slow Cook Oven
Long, slow cooking in the slow cook oven develops
flavors and makes the toughest meat tender. It’s large
capacity means several pans can be stacked here; soup,
casserole, steamed rice, steamed carrots and poached
pears all cooking simultaneously, without any danger of
burning.
Simmering Plate
The simmering plate is for slower cooking, such as
sauces, simmering pans and can also be used like a
griddle for toasted sandwiches, drop scones, no-fat fried
eggs and quesadillas.

Equipment supplied with your AGA Dual Control
Large Size Roasting Pan with Broiling Rack
Half Size Roasting Pan and Broiling Rack
This pan can be slid onto the oven runners width-ways
or can sit on an oven grid shelf. The half size roasting
pan can be used with the broiling rack, in its high
position, for broiling at the top of the roasting oven.
It can be used for roasting smaller joints of meat, or
poultry with or without the broiling rack. Roast potatoes
can be cooked in this pan. The roasting pan can also be
used for making brownies or cakes. The broiling rack is
useful on its own as a cake cooling rack. Can be used in
any oven but not recommended for hotplate use.
This is designed to slide onto the oven runners without
the need for it to sit on an oven grid shelf. The roasting
pan can be used with the broiling rack, in its high
position, for broiling at the top of the roasting oven. It
can be used for roasting meat, or poultry with or without
the broiling rack. Large quantities of roast potatoes can
be cooked in this pan. The roasting tin can also be used
for making large brownies or cakes. The broiling rack is
useful on its own as a cake cooling rack. Can be used in
any oven but not recommended for hotplate use.
3 Oven Grid Shelves
These are for inserting in each
oven to provide a surface for dishes
and tins which do not fit direct onto
the oven runners. They can be
used in any oven as required. See
Page 18 on how to locate the oven
shelves correctly.
1 Cold Plain Shelf
It is recommended this shelf
should be kept out of the ovens
when not in use. It has two use’s,
one as a large baking sheet for
scones, biscuits, pastry items and
meringues and the other as a heat
deflector to cut off the top heat if
food is overbrowning before it is
cooked through.
9
Baking Oven Baffle
A baking oven baffle is positioned
at the top of the oven, in order to
optimize cooking performance. For
best results, please ensure it is in
place at all times, while the oven
is in operation. The Installation
Engineer will fit this in place. This
can also be removed for cleaning.
Wire Brush
This is for cleaning the raw cast iron surfaces, keeping
them clear of crumbs and burnt on debris. Use on the
hotplates and the ovens. Take care not to touch the
enamel surfaces as the wire brush will scratch the finish.
Toaster
This is for toasting bread on the boiling plate. AGA toast
is renowned for its excellence, crisp on the outside and
soft in the centre. Take thick slices of bread and place
in the AGA toaster - if the bread is very moist or very
fresh, heat the toaster beforehand to prevent sticking lift the boiling plate insulated cover and place the toaster
direct onto the plate with the handle at an angle from the
handle of the cover.
Close the cover and wait for the bread to toast one
side - this will take 1-2 minutes dependent upon the
variety of bread - open the cover and turn the toaster
over and repeat the process to toast the other side. The
toaster can also be used for heating pitta bread, toasting
teacakes and as a cake cooling rack.
AGA Cookware and Accessories
To get the very best performance from your range
we recommend AGA stainless steel saucepans with
the thick tri-core bases and stacking lids so that the
maximum use of oven space is made and an AGA kettle
for boiling water. AGA Accessories can be viewed at
your AGA Dealer or online at www.aga-ranges.com.
Getting to know your AGA
If you have not already seen a demonstration, contact
AGA Kitchen Concierge or your local AGA Ambassador
for details on (800) 525-5601. A cooking demonstration
will show you how to get the best from your new AGA
and will give you hints and tips. You will also see a
selection of AGA cookware and accessories being used.

Thermostat Control - Oven
Your AGA Dual Control has three ovens, each of which
has pre-set temperature ranges. They are as follows:
The Roasting Oven
for high temperature cooking 425 ºF - 475 ºF
The Baking Oven
for moderate temperature cooking 325 ºF - 375 ºF
The Slow Cook Oven
for long, slow cooking 225 ºF - 255 ºF
DO NOT OPERATE THE APPLIANCE WITH THE
DOORS OPEN.
Each oven has the same capacity, (able to fit a 13kg
(28lb) turkey). The AGA heat storage range techniques
can be used such as stacking of saucepans in the
simmering oven. This enables the steaming of root
vegetables, rice, steamed pudding, casserole, poaching
fruit all in the one oven leaving the hotplates free.
The ovens are made from cast iron, which cook by
radiant heat, and this is the secret of the cooking
excellence for which the AGA range is renowned. An
indirect radiant heat does not dry food out, so it retains
its natural moisture and flavor.
11
The Oven Heat Indicator
The oven heat indicator is a guide to the stored heat within the AGA, and does not directly relate to the oven
temperature of the roasting oven.
An AGA is designed to work continuously at an optimum heat setting.
The optimum performance is usually achieved when the indicator displays the color green. For best cooking performance
wait until the AGA contains the full amount of stored heat, which is indicated by the windows being completely filled with
the colour green (Fig. 1). This may take some time to achieve and can take approximately 2 - 3 hours between use for
full recovery.
NOTE! Because of the temperature cycling the green band will move and display graduated
section at times. This is perfectly normal (Fig. 2). Cooking can be started during the
graduated part of the cycle but it may take longer to achieve the desired result.
The lower temperature is indicated by the colour amber and cycles in the same way as full
power (Fig. 3).
Fig. 1 Full green indicates ‘ready to use’
Fig. 3
Fig. 2 Normal movement during cycling
Amber indicates low temperature
setting. (Movement will also be seen with this setting).
12
The Roasting Oven
The Baking Oven
The roasting oven can used for ‘broiling’ at the top and
‘shallow frying’ on the oven floor.
This oven is set at a moderate heat, so is ideal for cakes,
biscuits and also anything that requires medium heat
cooking such as fish pie, lasagne, soufflés, crumble and
roulades. Meat and poultry can be cooked here in fact
most things that can be cooked in the roasting oven can be
cooked in the baking oven but for a longer time.
The roasting oven is zoned in heat, meaning it is slightly
hotter towards the top than the centre and the oven grid
shelf set on the oven floor is slightly less hot than the
centre.
Bake cakes together on one shelf, if two shelves are used
interchange the food to achieve even colouration, as you
would with any oven which is zoned in heat.
The beauty of the roasting oven is that any fat splashes
are burnt off when the oven is at full heat, just brush out
occasionally to get rid of carbon deposits.
As with the roasting oven the specially designed roasting
pans and bakeware slide directly onto the runners, so
almost every available square inch of space can be used.
Food can be protected by the use of the cold plain shelf or
shielded by means of the large roasting pan, which means
that you can cook food that requires different temperatures
at the same time.
The roasting oven is excellent for bread and pastries.
Quiches in ceramic or pies in Pyrex dishes need not be
baked blind as when they are placed on the floor grid on
the base of the oven, the pastry cooks from underneath
and the filling will set and brown from the all-round heat.
As you are aware metal flan tins conduct heat quicker
than ceramic so may need less cooking time.
If food is browning too quickly and you do not want to move
it to another oven just slide the cold plain shelf over the
food to reduce the top heat.
The specially designed roasting pans and bakeware
slide directly onto the runners, so almost every available
square inch of space can be used. Food can be
protected by the use of the cold plain shelf or shielded
by means of the large roasting pan, which means that
you can cook food that requires different temperatures
at the same time. If food is browning too quickly and you
do not want to move it to another oven just slide the cold
plain shelf over the food to reduce the top heat.
NOTE: ALWAYS REMOVE THE COLD PLAIN SHELF
AND ROASTING PANS ON COMPLETION OF COOKING.
IF LEFT IN THE OVEN IT WILL AFFECT THE OVEN
TEMPERATURE.
When using the roasting oven for a long period of time i.e.
a full meal, the baking oven temperature may rise, it will
therefore be necessary to adjust the cooking procedure, the
following suggestions may prove useful.
1. When placing the food in the baking oven, ensure the cold plain shelf is set directly above the dish, for the whole of the cooking time.
2. In addition it may be necessary to lower the shelf position.
3. When baking food, such as very rich fruit cakes, which
require a long period of cooking time, place the cake on
the fourth grid shelf position of the oven with the cold plain shelf set directly above for 3/4 hour approximately.
Move the plain shelf to the middle of the slow cook oven. Transfer the cake to this shelf and bake until cooked through.
4. Alternatively, allow the baking oven to cool for approximately 4 hours before using.
13
The Slow Cook Oven
The slow cook oven can be described as a continuation
oven, it continues to cook food that has been brought
up to heat elsewhere on the range with the exception of
meringues which are dried out rather than ‘cooked’.
User Guidance - Slow Cook Oven
•To get the very best performance, we recommend to
use the AGA cookware with thick bases and stacking
lids.
•Joints of meat and poultry should be brought up to
heat ideally in the roasting oven for 30 - 45 minutes,
then transfer to the simmering oven.This method is
unsuitable for stuffed meat and poultry.
•Make sure that pork and poultry reach an internal
temperature of at least 167°F (75°C).
•Always bring soups, casseroles and liquids to the boil
before putting in the oven.
•Always thaw frozen food completely before cooking.
•Root vegetables will cook better if cut into small
pieces.
•Adjust seasonings and thickenings at the end of the
cooking time.
•Many dried legumes and beans for example, dried
red kidney beans must be boiled for a minimum of 10
minutes, after soaking, and before inclusion in any
dish.

The Top Plate
Hotplate Control
The top plate is the enamelled surface surrounding
the hotplates. It will become warm when the AGA Dual
Control hotplates are in use. You can use the warmth
of this surface for a number of useful activities, which
more often than not save time and washing-up! These
include warming honey or syrup in the jar, or melting
butter or chocolate in a basin - so saving on melting over
a saucepan - but do please put the basin on a cork mat
or folded piece of kitchen towel to avoid scratching the
enamel. Although it is durable and hard-wearing surface
vitreous enamel is glass and will show scratch marks!
To operate the boiling plate turn the control knob to the
position and similarly to the
for the simmering
plate.
To turn both plates on turn knob to
position.
The Boiling Plate
The hottest hotplate, the boiling plate is used for boiling,
griddling, stir-frying, making toast - indeed anything that
requires a high heat. Green vegetables keep their colour
when boiled quickly here, or use a steamer over the
saucepan to cook more than one vegetable at once.
The top plate when warm can also be used to rest a cup
of coffee or tea or dehydrate leafy herbs for future use.
The Hotplates
When stir-frying or cooking anything that is inclined to
splash we would recommend using an AGA Splash
Shield which will protect the insulated cover from
splatter, making cleaning a doddle! Just wash the Splash
Shield in hot soapy water or place in a dishwasher
between two dinner plates.
The hotplates operate separate from the ovens and
independent of each other.
The boiling plate is on the left hand side and the
simmering plate is on the right hand side of the AGA
Dual Control. The boiling plate is the hottest with the
simmering plate being the cooler of the two. They
both have electric elements embedded into the cast
iron which heat up in approximately 11 and 8 minutes
respectively. The hotplates can be used completely
independently from the ovens and seperate from each
other.
The Simmering Plate
The simmering plate is the cooler of the two hotplates
and so is used for recipes that require a lower heat such
as making sauces, scrambling eggs, heating milk, slow
frying, simmering soups and root vegetables. In addition,
it can be used to cook on directly as a form of griddle invaluable for toasted sandwiches, quesadillas, soups,
drop scones, searing scallops and even a non-fat fried
egg! Slow cooked toast can be made on the simmering
plate, no need here to use the AGA toaster.
The whole hotplate area can be used for cooking and
several pans can be accomodated on a single plate at
any one time. The hotplates are set very slightly above
the top plate to avoid accidental scratching if the pans
are pulled to one side. Do not drag the utensils from one
plate to another as the enamel will suffer!
The same size as the boiling plate, the simmering plate
is also machined flat to give the best all-over contact with
the AGA saucepans, grill pan, frying pan and kettle.
The stainless steel insulated covers are brought down
over the hotplates when they are not in use. When the
hotplates are ‘on’ the insulated covers will be warm. We
strongly advise not to put anything such as kettles,
saucepans or baking pans directly onto the insulated
covers because it will scratch - invest in a pair of chef’s
pads to protect the surface if the covers are to be used
as resting places!
Cleaning details can be found on Page 21.
Keep the hotplates clear of any burnt on food or crumbs
by brushing with the wire brush, supplied with your AGA.

General Advice
When first switched on, the AGA will emit an odour for
a short while. This is simply due to protective oil burning
off the hotplates. Wipe the inside of the lids whilst
the AGA is heating up to avoid a film of this oil being
deposited on the inside.
The following points are intended to help in adapting to
the AGA style of cooking during the change-over from a
previous non-heat storage range.
For the most effective operation of the range, the
following points should be carefully observed:
1. Close the insulating cover lids whenever the hotplates are not in use.
2. Clean the hotplates regularly with the wire brush.
3. Utensils with flat bases must be used to make perfect
contact with the hotplate.
4. Take care when closing the oven doors, to lift them onto the catch.
5. Cook as much as possible in the ovens so that heat is conserved and cooking smells and condensation are reduced.
6. The oven doors should not be left open for long periods of time during cooking and heating up.
The roasting oven can also be used for ‘broiling’ and
‘shallow frying’ on the oven floor.
l
For optimum cooking performance, use the AGA utensils and cast iron cookware. They have flat bases
which give the best contact with the hotplates and the
oven floor.
l
The AGA pans can be stacked in the simmering
oven. This is especially useful for steaming
vegetables and keeping sauces warm.
l
Store the plain shelf out of the AGA. Use it cold in the
roasting oven to deflect the heat from the top of the oven, creating a more moderate oven temperature underneath. It can also be used as a baking sheet.

Caring and cleaning
Cast iron ovens and hotplates
REMEMBER: BE CAREFUL OF THE HOT
APPLIANCE.
Ovens - are made from cast iron and keep themselves
clean. They are very durable, but will rust if surface
moisture is left on them. Remember to always switch the
ovens on, to dry them out after cleaning.
DO NOT USE A STEAM CLEANER TO CLEAN THIS RANGE.
Heating up the ovens periodically will help burn off any
cooking deposits to aid cleaning within the ovens.
DO NOT USE ABRASIVE PADS, CAUSTIC CLEANERS, OVEN CLEANERS OR METAL SCRAPERS TO CLEAN THE SURFACES OF THE ENAMEL.
To season the ovens, a light vegetable spray oil (corn
oil is best) is recommended. Any stubborn stains can be
removed with the wire brush supplied.
FOR MOST CLEANING IT IS BEST WHEN THE APPLIANCE IS TURNED OFF.
Hotplates - are made from cast iron, and are easy to
care for. Regular maintenance will ensure long-life. They
will rust if surface moisture is left on them
REMEMBER THE TOP PLATE AND THE POLISHED COVERS WILL SCRATCH IF PANS
OR UTENSILS ARE DRAGGED ACROSS THEM.
Should the hotplates become soiled, use a sponge, cloth,
scouring pad or wire brush to remove burnt-on spills.
DO NOT IMMERSE THE DOORS IN WATER AS
THEY ARE PACKED WITH INSULATING MATERIAL, WHICH WILL BE DAMAGED BY EXCESSIVE MOISTURE.
Rinse off detergents or cleaning agents thoroughly.
Remember to switch on the hotplates for a few minutes
to dry it after cleaning. Every now and then, apply a
thin coating of vegetable oil (corn oil is best) when the
hotplate is cold.
DO NOT PUT OVEN DOORS OR RESTING PLATES IN A DISHWASHER.
Enamelled cast iron
Lids and oven door/lids linings
Top plate, front plate, oven doors and resting plates
- The easiest way to clean the enamelled cast iron
parts is to mop up spills as soon as they happen. It
maybe useful to keep a damp cloth handy to do this.
Baked on food is more difficult to clean but can usually
be removed with the AGA vitreous enamel cleaner
or mild cream cleaners using a damp cloth, or, if
necessary a nylon scouring pad. If milk or fruit juice or
anything containing acid, is spilt on the range, wipe it up
immediately. Clean off any condensation streaks on the
front plate around the oven doors or the vitreous enamel
maybe permanently discoloured.
The top of the insulated covers (lids) - these are
chrome or stainless steel and can be kept clean by
wiping over with a damp cloth and polished up - the
AGA E-cloths are excellent for this purpose as they
are lint-free and eco-friendly. AGA stainless steel and
chrome cleaner are recommended to keep the insulated
cover clean and shining. These can be purchased from
your local AGA retailer.
Lining of the insulated covers (lids interior) - the use
of an AGA splash shield is recommended to keep the
lining free of fat splashes, (obtainable from your AGA
retailer or on-line at www.agamarvel.com).
To keep the vitreous enamel surfaces of the range bright
and clean, a daily rub over with a damp soapy cloth
followed immediately with a clean, dry cloth to avoid
streaks is all that is required. AGA E-cloths are excellent
for this.
If the lining is marked it is best cleaned when the
hotplate is cold. It can be cleaned with hot soapy water
and/or a cream cleanser. If badly marked then a soap
impregnated pad can be used - this should be used in a
circular motion.
Enamelled cookware
The first few times a soap impregnated pad is used you
will see the circular marks, these will become reduced
and the surface of the lining becomes shinier each time
when used. Do not use excessive water and make sure
the lining is dry before closing the cover.
Enamelled roasting pans - supplied with the AGA Dual
Control should be cleaned in hot soapy water, soaking
if necessary. A nylon scouring pad can also be used.
They may also be cleaned in the dishwasher, but with
constant use, the enamelled finish will become dull in
appearance.
Oven door linings - the linings can be cleaned with hot
soapy water, a cream cleanser or soap impregnated
pad. To deep clean the lining place a towel on the work
surface and carefully lift off the oven door (doors are
heavy) and place it enamel side down on the towel
padding. Clean with a soap impregnated pad to remove
stubborn marks. Dry off before replacing on their hinges.
