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 AGA 60 is a compact cooker which combines the design values and cooking principles of the traditional AGA with the flexibility to turn each cooking area off and on as you require, thereby fitting into your lifestyle beautifully.

The AGA 60 has been designed to have all the attributes of a larger AGA within a small space.

Refer to the diagram in the

Overview

for upper oven, lower oven, grill, etc.

chapter to familiarise yourself with the product and refer to the relevant sections 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.

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.

Control panel

When switching on the AGA cooker for the first few times, there are two things you may notice, neither of which should cause concern.

The AGA cooker will emit an odour for a short while, this is simply due to the protective oil we put on the hotplate and ovens burning off. Due to the newness in the first couple of hours, it is advisable to open the kitchen window while this takes place.

Condensation may occur on the top and front plate whilst the AGA cooker is heating up, caused by the insulation lagging and starch binder on the element insulation drying out. The condensation should be wiped away as soon as possible to prevent staining the enamel.

Your AGA 60 has the external appearance of a classic AGA heat storage enamelled cast iron cooker. However, it’s flexibility is almost unbounded because in place of a single heat source each cooking zone has its own electrically heated cast iron element (s). The separation of cooking zones, allows a choice of control. You are able to select only the zones that you want, or need, to use.

Cooker hoods and oven venting

It is recommended that this AGA is fitted with a cooker hood above it. The AGA venting system is located on top of the AGA and is designed for venting the moisture from the ovens. The cooker hood should be positioned not less than the minimum height as recommended by the manufacturer, from the top of the AGA.

The AGA 60 ovens are manufactured from cast iron, over a period of time they will become individually seasoned.

However, the ovens will rust if high moisture content foods are not covered (especially in the simmering oven) or spillages are not cleaned up.

It is also not advisable to leave a full or partially filled saucepan/utensils with high moisture content food in the ovens when they are not in use.

To season the ovens a light vegetable oil is ideal (corn oil is best), spray oil is recommended. Any stubborn stains can be removed with the wire brush supplied.

General advice

Food should not be placed into any oven until it is up to normal operating heat.

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

Store the cold plain shelf outside the cooker. Use it cold in the roasting oven to deflect heat from the top of the oven, creating a more moderate oven temperature underneath. It can also be used as a baking sheet.

Warm up times

As the AGA works on the principle of storing heat, time is required to gather that heat from the electric elements to saturate the castings.

We recommend to allow an hour heat up time.

The optional programmer is a great asset as it can be set to get the top oven to its working heat, ready for you to cook when you walk through the door.

The principle of heat storage means that the ovens and hotplate are at a pre-set heat, the cooking areas are named after their function rather than temperatures.

Using the zones of the AGA 60

The different zones of the AGA 60 cooker are described individually, in the following pages.

The traditional AGA heat storage cooker is famous for the gentle warmth it emits, with the AGA 60 you will get warmth only when the cooker is on or warmth to a lesser degree when only parts of it are on.

The hotplate

The cast iron hotplate is operated manually and is machined flat to give the best all-over contact with the AGA saucepans, grill pan, frying pan and kettle.

The boiling plate setting is the hottest with the simmering plate setting being cooler. It has electric elements embedded into the cast iron which heat up in approximately 11 and 8 minutes respectively. The hotplate can be used completely independently from the ovens.

The whole hotplate area can be used for cooking and several pans can be accommodated on the plate at any one time. The hotplate is set very slightly above the top plate to minimise scratching as the pans are pulled to one side to simmer.

The chrome insulated cover is brought down over the hotplate when it is heating up or not in use. When the hotplate is ‘ON’ the insulated cover will be warm. We strongly advise not to put anything such as kettles, saucepans or baking tins directly onto the insulated cover because it will show any scratches - invest in a chef’s pad to protect the surface if the cover is to be used as a resting place!

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

“Cleaning & caring for your cooker” on page 18

.

Hotplate control

To operate the boiling plate setting turn the control knob to the position and similarly to the for the simmer plate setting.

The boiling plate setting

The hottest setting, the boiling plate setting is used for boiling, grilling, 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 saucepans 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 setting is too hot to cook food directly on it.

The simmering plate setting

The simmering plate setting is the cooler of the two settings 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, drop scones, searing scallops and even a non-fat fried egg! Slow cooked toast can be made on the simmering plate setting, no need to use the AGA toaster here.

The resting plates

The resting plates are useful when you wish to move a pan off boil or to a lower temperature.

Take care when removing and replacing the cast iron resting plates, as they are heavy. Ensure they are cold before removing.

Removing resting plates

Insert lifting tool in recess at rear of resting plate. Lift up at rear, the slide out carefully from the side,

Replacement of resting plates Replace resting plates carefully, as shown in

.

The ovens

Your AGA 60 has two ovens which are pre-set at a different heat, just like the traditional AGA heat storage cooker. The top oven has two temperature settings one for the roasting and one for baking.

Top Oven •

The roasting oven setting for high temperature cooking

The baking oven setting for moderate temperature cooking

n n

OPEN, SINCE THIS CAN CAUSE A LOCK-OUT.

Each oven has the same capacity, (able to fit a 13kg (28lb) turkey) and the traditional AGA heat-storage cooker techniques can be used, such as stacking saucepans in the simmering oven. This enables the steaming of root vegetables, rice, steamed pudding, casserole, poaching fruit all in the same oven leaving the hotplate free.

You can have one or two ovens on at their pre-set heat. The ovens are made from cast iron, which cooks by a 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.

4. AGA accessories

To get the very best performance from your range 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. 4.1)

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. 4.2)

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.

2 Floor Grid (Fig. 4.3)

This grid is used on the floor of the ovens, in particular the roasting and simmering ovens to protect food needing over 30 minutes cooking from the intensity of the heat from the base element.

2 Oven Grid Shelves (Fig. 4.4)

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.

Fig. 4.5 Fig. 4.6 Fig. 4.7 Fig. 4.8 1 Cold Plain Shelf (Fig. 4.5)

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

Toaster (Fig. 4.6)

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. 4.7)

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.

Resting plate lifting tool (Fig. 4.8)

To aid removal of the cast iron resting plates for cleaning.

Roasting oven setting

The roasting oven setting is indirectly heated by two elements, one in the base of the oven and the other in the roof. These elements heat the air and the cast iron within to provide cooking results consistent with the traditional AGA heat-storage cooker, with the flexibility of being able to turn the off when not in use.

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

When cooking on the base of the roasting oven, place the floor grid on the base before putting the food into the oven. This lifts the food away from the base element to ensure best cooking results are achieved.

The roasting oven setting 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 base of the oven can be used as another cooking surface, indeed it is often called a hidden hotplate use the floor grid for protection so food does not overbrown.

The beauty of the roasting oven setting is that any fat is burnt off when the oven is at full heat, just brush out occasionally to remove the carbon deposits.

The roasting oven setting is excellent for bread and pastries. Quiches in ceramic or pies in Pyrex dishes need not be baked blind as when they are in 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 flat tins conduct heat quicker than ceramic 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 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.

Baking oven setting

The oven is indirectly heated by two elements, one in the base of the oven and the other in the roof. These elements heat the air and the cast iron within to provide cooking results consistent with traditional AGA heat storage cookers, with the flexibility of being able to turn it off when not in use.

This setting is a moderate heat, so is ideal for cakes, biscuits, also anything that requires medium heat cooking such as fish pie, lasagne, soufflés, crumble and roulades. Meat and poultry can be cooked here indeed most things that can be cooked on the roasting oven setting can be cooked on the baking oven setting but for a longer time.

For the best results when cooking cakes do allow at least the one hour heat up 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 heat.

As with the roasting oven setting, 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 heat.

NOTE:

When baking it is always best to start from cold, otherwise if baking after using the roasting setting the oven will take a considerable amount of time to cool.

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.

9

Simmering oven

The simmering oven is indirectly heated by one element in the base of the oven.

This element heats the air and the cast iron within it to provide cooking results consistent with the traditional simmering oven of the traditional AGA heat-storage cooker, with the flexibility of being able to turn it off when not required.

The floor grid is used here to protect items placed on the base of the oven such as vegetables for steaming, keeping sauces warm or casseroles cooked for a long time. Always ensure this is in place, before putting food into 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’.

User Guidance •

Allow the oven to heat fully, the longer the oven is on the better, we recommend one hour.

To get the very best performance, we recommend to use AGA cookware with thick bases and stacking lids.

• DO NOT

place dishes directly on to the oven base. Always place onto either a shelf or the floor grid.

Joints of meat and poultry should be brought up to heat ideally on the roasting oven setting for 30-45 minutes, then transfered to the simmering oven.

This method is unsuitable for stuffed meat and stuffed 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 simmering oven.

Always thaw frozen food completely before cooking.

Root vegetables will cook better if cut into small pieces.

Adjust seasoning 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.

containing citric acid on enamelled surfaces.

Enamelled Top and Front Plate

The easiest way to clean the AGA top plate and front plate is to mop up spills as they happen. VEA approved AGA Enamel Cleaner can be purchased at www.agacookshop.co.uk.

Baked on food is more difficult to clean but can usually be removed with proprietary vitreous enamel cleaners or mild cream cleaners using a cloth, or if necessary, a nylon scouring pad.

If milk or fruit juice, or anything containing acid is spilt on the enamel, wipe off immediately.

Clean off any condensation streaks on the front plate around the oven doors or the vitreous enamel maybe permanently discoloured.

All that is usually needed to keep the vitreous enamelled surfaces of your cooker bright and clean is a daily rub over with a damp, soapy cloth followed immediately with a clean, dry cloth to avoid streaks.

Remember the top plate will scratch if pans or utensils are dragged across them.

The Ovens

The fan oven is fitted with a back panel which is of self cleaning enamel and should not be scoured.

All of the remaining surfaces of both ovens are vitreous enamelled and can be cleaned with proprietary vitreous enamel cleaners approved by the Vitreous Enamel Association.

The shelves can be removed and if necessary the shelf supports may also be removed by taking out the screws.

These items may be washed in the sink with normal oven cleaners, you may use a fine wool soap pad for removing stubborn stains from the oven bases and shelf supports.

n n

phials in the ovens when cleaning.

Heat Clean Enamel Fan oven - back panel only

This special enamel has a continuous cleaning action, which works best if a pattern of low and high temperature cooking is followed. By using low temperature roasting, excessive fat splashes can be avoided. Should any excessive staining occur, immediately clean the area with hot water containing detergent, and a nylon washing-up brush. Resistant stains require the oven to be run at 210°C for 2 hours.

DO NOT use any cleaning materials which may clog the pores of the special coating e.g. pastes and powders, soap filled pads, spray cleaners, brush-on oven cleaners, caustic solutions, metal scrapers/knives, and prevent the cleaning action.

13

Door Liners

May be cleaned with a cream cleaner or soap impregnated pad.

Lift off the oven doors to allow them to cool a little before cleaning.

DO NOT

, however, immerse the doors in water as they are packed with insulating material which will be damaged by excessive moisture.

Controls

The enamelled surface under the knobs can be treated as in the Section ‘Door Liners’. Avoid the use of excessive water.

DO NOT

use oven cleaners, scouring pads and abrasive powder for cleaning the plastic knobs. A wipe with a damp cloth should be sufficient.

TIP:

Clean your Module regularly, Preferably every time you use it.

IMPORTANT

: AGA recommend Vitreous Enamel Association approved cleaners for cleaning the vitreous enamelled surfaces of this product.

If you are installing the appliance in a new kitchen or have the opportunity to set the width between kitchen units, it is advisable to include an additional small gap each side of 3mm to assist with installation and prevent damage when moving the product.

A 6mm additional width clearance should also be provided if the appliance is to go into a brick recess, to allow for the wall being out of square.

Where it is installed against a side wall protruding in the front of the appliance a 116mm clearance is required on the left hand side for the oven door access. Any side wall above the appliance on either side shall not be less than 60mm horizontally from the appliance (

Fig. 12.1

).

Surfaces over the top of the appliance must not be closer than 650mm.

The vent slot in the back of the top plate must not be obstructed.

Fitting into a 60cm gap

If you are restricted to a 60cm width space, the AGA 60 will fit, subject to the following guide (

Fig. 12.2

).

The appliance top plate casting width tapers outwards at its bottom edge. Consequently adjacent cupboard units should have a maximum depth of 595mm (including doors). If they are deeper, bring the appliance forward. The thickness of adjacent worktops should not exceed 45mm.

Appliance Base or Hearth

It is essential that the base or hearth on which the appliance stands should be level and be capable of supporting the total weight of the appliance.

The front plinth cover is removable and must not be obstructed by flooring or tiles. If necessary the appliance must be raised by the thickness of the tiles to ensure the plinth can be removed, and the appliance can be rolled out for service.

Tiling

When the appliance is to stand in a recess or against a wall which is to be tiled, in no circumstances should the tiles overlap the appliance top plate, access to remove the top plate must be allowed for servicing at a later date.

Option Pre-heat Timer Kit (AE4M231659)

If the optional pre-heat timer kit is fitted allowances must be made for timer location and the cable between the timer and appliance. Timer cable is 4 metres.

Combustible Rear Walls

Since this appliance can be used continuously, please take note of the

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS

.

Where the rear wall is constructed of combustible materials (such as all-timber or stud wall partitions and batoned plasterboard) these will require special wall heat protection measures.

Non-combustible insulation board as a protective cladding can be used behind the appliance of at least 15mm thick, such as Monolux or equivalent. This should be taken up to hotplate level (

Fig. 12.3

).

Alternatively the cooker can be spaced away from the wall to create an air gap, using the 25mm spacer brackets supplied with the cooker (

Fig. 12.4

).

DESN 516959

The air gap must be left open and

NOT

blocked off across the top edge (

Fig. 12.5

).

SPECIAL NOTE:

Ensure that unprotected electric cabling or plastic services do not pass within or on the outside of the wall behind or directly above the appliance. This type of material can age prematurely when exposed to continuous higher temperature.

Other Clearances

A minimum clearance of 60mm is required above the raised insulating cover handle.

A minimum clearance of 1000mm must be available at the front of the appliance to enable it to be serviced.
