Beneath the glossy enamel of every AGA beats the heart of quality cast iron. It is this cast iron which sets AGA apart and exemplifies the AGA difference.
Cast iron is acclaimed as one of the most perfect mediums for cooking because it retains, evenly distributes and radiates gentle heat maintaining the foods flavor and succulence. Cast iron also reduces intrusive cooking smells and flavor cross-contamination allowing you to cook an entire meal with all the fixings at the same time in the same oven – a feat other ranges cannot accomplish.
Deep within the AGA rests a patented burner. A unique temperature regulation system continually transfers heat to each oven and hotplate at precise pre-set levels while the cast iron focuses on heat retention. The efficient radiant heat and insulated design minimizes fuel consumption and creates optimal cooking conditions without the drying, direct heat used in traditional ranges. Gentle radiant heat locks in moisture preserving flavor, nutrients and the integrity of the foods being cooked.
Once an AGA is up to operating temperature just a trickle of energy is all that`s needed to keep it there. You can choose from natural gas or electricity.
Twin insulated covers are the great AGA hallmark. When closed, they're gently warm to the touch. Open them and both hot plates are instantly ready to cook.
Big enough to hold three average sized saucepans at once, its high heat can boil water faster than most electric kettles.
A far gentler heat than the boiling plate, makes it work wonders with sauces or when frying an egg. It holds three average sized saucepans and can also be used as a griddle.
This oven is big enough to accommodate a 25-lb turkey. As versatile as it is spacious, it can also be used for grilling and baking.
Like all AGA ovens the cast iron interior holds its heat, so don`t be afraid to open the door and take a peek at progress. Its moderate baking temperature is perfect for bread, cakes and biscuits.
