2. Introduction

As responsible manufacturers we take care to make sure that our products are designed and constructed to meet the required safety standards when properly installed and used.

Your new AGA Dual Control gives you everything you love about the AGA heat storage cooker, but with the added convenience that the two hotplates can be turned on or off, as required.

Refer to the diagram in the Overview chapter to familiarise yourself with the product and refer to the relevant sections for the ovens, plates, controls etc.

Made in the heart of Shropshire, your AGA cooker, like the generations of cookers 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 cooker 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.

n n

ACCOMPANYING WARRANTY.

Any alteration that is not approved by AGA could invalidate the approval of the appliance, operation of the warranty and could affect your statutory rights. In the interests of safety and effective use, please read the following before using your new AGA appliance.

The use of a gas cooking appliance results in the production of heat and moisture in the room in which it is installed. Ensure that the kitchen is well ventilated: keep natural ventilation holes open or install a mechanical ventilation device (mechanical extractor hood).

Prolonged intensive use of the appliance may call for additional ventilation, for example, opening of a window, or more effective ventilation, for example increasing the level of mechanical ventilation where present.

Installation must be to local and national wiring regulations and carried out by a qualified engineer.

A little smoke and some odour may be emitted when first switched on. This is normal and harmless (from oven lagging and starch binder on the element insulation) and will cease after a short period of use.

AGA DC3G Fig. 3.1

Boiling Plate Simmering Plate Top Plate Control Panel Roasting Oven Baking Oven Simmering Oven The AGA DC3G has the traditional cast iron ovens with independently controlled hotplates.

Hotplates

The two hotplates are at different heats; the boiling plate being the hottest of the two and the simmering plate is a lower heat. Each plate is individually controlled.

Boiling Plate

The boiling plate is used for making toast, boiling a kettle, stir-frying and cooking at a higher heat.

Simmering Plate

The simmering plate is for slower cooking, such as sauces, simmering pans and can also be used to cook on directly for toasted sandwiches, drop scones, no-fat fried eggs and quesadillas.

Roasting Oven

The hottest oven for high temperature cooking; pastries breads, roasting of meat, vegetables and poultry, grilling at the top of the oven and frying on the floor.

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 flavours do not mix.

Simmering Oven

Long, slow cooking in the simmering oven develops flavours 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.

Fig. 4.1

Hotplates Control Knob Oven Gas Control Knob Oven Thermostat Control Knob Oven Heat Indicator Viewing Window DESN 516865 The different zones of the AGA Dual Control cooker are described in the following pages.

The traditional AGA heat storage cooker is famous for the gentle warmth it emits, with the AGA Dual Control you will get warmth only when the ovens are on or warm to a lesser degree, when the hotplates are on.

Thermostat Control - Oven

Your AGA Dual Control has three ovens, each of which is pre set at a different heat. They are named as:-

• Roasting Oven

for high temperature cooking

• Baking Oven

for moderate temperature cooking

• Simmering Oven

for low temperature cooking

• Slow Cooking Oven

(DC5G only)

for long slow cooking

• Warming Oven

(DCG5 only)

for warming plates and serving dishes n n

OPEN.

Each oven has the same capacity, (able to fit a 13kg (28lb) turkey. The AGA Dual Control cooker 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 and reducing steam and cooking smells in the kitchen.

The ovens are made from cast iron, which cooks by radiant heat, and this is the secret of the cooking excellence for which the AGA cooker is renowned. An indirect radiant heat does not dry food out, so it retains its natural moisture and flavour.

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 ia designed to work continuously at an optimum heat setting.

The optimum performance is usually achieved when the indicator displays the colour 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 ( hours between use for full recovery.

Fig. 4.2

). This may take some time to achieve and can take approximately 2 - 3

NOTE!

Because of the temperature cycling, the green band will move and display graduated section at times. This is perfectly normal ( the desired result.

Fig. 4.3

). Cooking can be started during the graduated part of the cycle but it may take longer to achieve The lower temperature is indicated by the colour amber and cycles in the same way as full power (

Fig. 4.4

). Full green indicates ‘Ready to Use’ Normal movement during cycle Amber indicates low temperature setting. Movement will also be seen with this setting

NOTE:

Low fire position is attained by turning oven gas control knob gradually into the white band until small flame along main burner is observed through viewing window.

NOTE:

It will take up to 24 hours for all ovens to reach operating temperature, the oven heat indicator may display green before this (refer to

page 7

regarding heat indication display). Once the oven temperatures are at operating temperature it may be necessary to make fine adjustment to the oven control knob to achieve the desired temperatures. It is not advisable to make further changes to the control knob once the desired temperature is achieved.

When the cooker is lit from cold, moisture may form on the enamel which should be wiped off to prevent staining.

IF THE FLAME HAS EXTINGUISHED FOR ANY REASON, WAIT THREE MINUTES (MINIMUM) AND REPEAT THE LIGHTING PROCEDURE.

To Extinguish the Burner

1.

Turn ON/OFF gas control knob clockwise until reaching stop ( ) position.

2.

Press down slightly and continue turning clockwise from ( ) position to the OFF position (

) When the burner has cooled sufficiently, lighting procedure may be repeated.

Power Failure

During power failure your appliance will not work until power is restored and the appliance will automatically resume with the selected functions. At anytime should the appliance not operate any selected function during normal operating conditions, turn off the function at its control knob and contact AGA Service or your local AGA Specialist.

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 cooker. The AGA book provides a very useful introduction to the cooker.

For the most effective operation of the cooker, the following points should be carefully observed:

1. 2. 3. 4.

Close the insulating cover lids whenever the hotplates are not in use.

Clean the hotplates regularly with the wire brush.

Utensils with flat bases must be used to make perfect contact with the hotplate.

Take care when closing the oven doors, to lift them onto the catch.

5. 6.

Cook as much as possible in the ovens so that heat is conserved and cooking smells and condensation are reduced.

The oven doors should not be left open for long periods of time during cooking and heating up.

7. •

The roasting oven can also be used for ‘grilling’ and ‘shallow frying’ on the oven floor.

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.

The AGA pans can be stacked in the simmering oven. This is especially useful for steaming vegetables and keeping sauces warm.

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.

A guide to AGA cooking is given on

“Cleaning & caring for your cooker” on page 18

5. AGA Accessories

Fig. 5.1 Fig. 5.2 Fig. 5.3 Fig. 5.4

To get the very best performance from your cooker we recommend AGA 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 Specialist or online at www.agacookshop.

Getting to know your AGA

If you have not already seen a demonstration, ask your AGA Specialist for details. A 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 utensils and accessories being used.

Large Size Roasting Tin with Grill Rack (Fig. 5.1)

This is designed to slide onto the oven runners without the need for it to sit on an oven grid shelf. The roasting tin can be used with the grill rack, in its high position, for grilling at the top of the roasting oven. It can be used for roasting meat, or poultry with or without the grill rack. Large quantities of roast potatoes can be cooked in this tin. The roasting tin can also be employed for making large traybakes or cakes. The grill rack is useful on its own as a cake cooling rack. Can be used in any oven but not recommended for hotplate use.

Half Size Roasting Tin and Grill Rack (Fig. 5.2)

This tin can be slid onto the oven runners width-ways or can sit on an oven grid shelf. The half size roasting tin can be used with the grill rack, in its high position, for grilling at the top of the roasting oven. It can be used for roasting smaller joints of meat, or poultry with or without the grill rack. Roast potatoes can be cooked in this tin. The roasting tin can also be employed for making traybakes or cakes. The grill 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 ( Fig. 5.3)

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

“Oven shelves” on page 12

on how to locate the oven shelves correctly.

1 Cold Plain Shelf (Fig. 5.4)

This has two uses one as large baking sheet for scones, biscuits, pastry items and meringues and the other use as a heat deflector to cut off the top heat if food is overbrowning before it is cooked through.

n n 10

Toaster (Fig. 5.5)

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.

Wire Brush (Fig. 5.6)

This is for cleaning the raw cast iron surfaces, keeping them clear of crumbs and burnt on debris – which would otherwise affect the boiling performance of pans and the kettle. Use on the hotplates and the ovens. Take care not to touch the enamel surfaces as the wire brush will scratch the finish.

(The Ovens)

Top Plate Control Panel Baking Oven Boiling Plate Simmering Plate Roasting Oven Simmering Oven

The Roasting Oven

The roasting oven can used for ‘grilling’ at the top and ‘shallow frying’ on the oven floor.

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.

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.

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.

The specially designed roasting tins and bakeware slide directly onto the runners, so almost every available square centimetre 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 tin, 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.

13

The Baking Oven

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.

Cook 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.

As with the roasting oven the specially designed roasting tins and bakeware slide directly onto the runners, so almost every available square centimetre 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 tin, 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 tins 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. 4.

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 simmering oven. Transfer the cake to this shelf and bake until cooked through.

Alternatively, allow the baking oven to cool for pproximately 4 hours before using.

The Simmering Oven

The simmering oven can be described as a continuation oven, it continues to cook food that has been brought up to heat elsewhere on the cooker with the exception of meringues which are dried out rather than ‘cooked’.

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 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 pulses 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.

(Hotcupboard)

Warming Plate Boiling Plate Simmering Plate Hotcupboard ON/OFF Slow Cooking Oven Warming Oven Control Panel Roasting Oven Baking Oven Simmering Oven

Slow Cooking Oven and Warming Oven

These are ovens are heated by a single element at the rear of the oven cavity. It is operated by a single push ON-OFF button located on the left hand side of the hotcupboard top plate and can be turned ON and OFF when required. These ovens are not cast iron on the interior.

Slow Cooking Oven

This oven has similar characteristics of the simmering oven and should be utilised in a similar manner. It delivers a gentler convected heat making it better suited for longer cooking times especially for overnight cooking, for example rich fruit cakes and celebration cakes. The cooking of meringues may also be better suited for this oven.

NOTE:

These ovens vent into the room, mechanical venting to the outside is not available.

Points to remember when Slow Cooking: •

Pre-heat the ovens for 30 minutes before starting to cook.

Bring casseroles, soups etc. to the boil on the hotplate and start meat in the roasting oven, before placing in the slow cooking oven.

Make sure that casseroles have sufficient liquid, particularly when cooking over a long period.

Use lids on casseroles or foil to cover food whilst it is cooking to retain moisture.

15

Make sure all dishes will fit into the oven before preparing food.

Make sure that meat and poultry is piping hot before eating and reaches 75°C internal temperature.

Always thaw frozen food completely before cooking.

You can also produce crisp, white meringues cooked in the slow cooking oven.

Timings for cooking in the slow cooking oven will depend upon the temperature, quantity and type of dish you are cooking, as a guide for casseroles, a minimum of 2 hours cooking time is recommended.

Keep an eye on the food until you are familiar with the oven. The simmering oven can be described as a continuation oven, it continues to cook food that has been brought up to heat elsewhere on the cooker with the exception of meringues which are dried out rather than ‘cooked’.

The Plates

Top Plate

The top plate is the enamelled surface surrounding the hotplates. It will become warm when the AGA Dual Control hotplates are in use. Although it is not a cooking surface you can use the warmth for a number of useful activities, which more often than not save times 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!

The top plate when warm can also be used to rest a cup of coffee or tea or dry off awkwardly shaped tins, peelers or food mixer and processor parts.

Hotplates

The hotplates operate separate from the ovens and are 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.

This means the AGA Dual Control differs from the traditional AGA heat storage cooker in that they can be used for the entire cooking time of appropriate dishes because the design keeps the hotplates at a constant heat, whereas the traditional AGA cooker continues to cook on a falling heat so for these we recommend starting on the hotplates then transferring to the ovens, this can be done with the AGA Dual Control but is not necessary. For instance, if making a pasta dish with sauce on the AGA Dual Control, it can all be done on the hotplates.

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 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 tins directly onto the insulated covers because they will show any scratches - invest in a pair of chef’s pads to protect the surface if the covers are to be used as resting places!

Keep the hotplates clear of any burnt on food or crumbs by brushing with the wire brush, supplied with your AGA. Cleaning details can be found on Page 21.

Hotplate Control

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.

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.

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.

Please be advised the boiling plate is too hot to cook food on directly.

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 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.

To keep the vitreous enamel surfaces of the cooker 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.

Cast iron ovens and hotplates 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. Heating up the ovens periodically will help burn off any cooking deposits to aid cleaning within the ovens.

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.

Hotplates

- is made from cast iron, and is easy to care for. Regular maintenance will ensure long-life. They will rust if surface moisture is left on them Should the hotplates become soiled, use a sponge, cloth, scouring pad or wire brush to remove burnt-on spills.

Rinse off detergents or cleaning agents thoroughly.

Remember to switch on the hotplate 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.

Lids and oven door/lids linings The top of the insulated cover (lid)

- this is 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 Specialist.

Lining of the insulated cover (lid interior)

at www.agacookshop.co.uk). - the use of an AGA splash shield is recommended to keep the lining free of fat splashes, (obtainable from your AGA Specialist or on-line 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. 18

WARNING:

Accessible parts may become hot during use. To avoid burns and scalds children should be kept away.

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.

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.
