The Aga 5 Oven Dual Control cooker is similar to the traditional Aga keeping the iconic design, great craftsmanship and durability whilst adding flexibility, reduced running and servicing costs, with a fuelling choice of either electric or gas ovens and electric hotplates.
With the ovens always on like it’s traditional cousin the DC 5-oven has the cosy indefinable warmth we have all come to know and love but unlike the traditional Aga the ovens can be turned down to a lower setting or even off completely (although to reach full temperature again from the lower setting it would take 2-4 hours and 8 hours from off). The Hotplates can be turned on and off and used completely independently from the ovens.
The 5-oven Dual Control has the same set up as the 3 oven Dual Control (roasting, baking, simmering ovens and boiling, simmering plates) with 2 additional ovens and one additional hotplate comprising of slow cooking oven, warming oven and a warming plate. These additional options are controlled manually.
How the 5 oven Aga Dual Control cooker works
Both the simmering plate and the boiling plate are operated from the control panel behind the top left door in each of the hotplates is found a powerful heating element bringing the boiling plate up to temperature in 11 minutes and the simmering plate in 8 minutes.
As with the traditional Aga cookers the heat is generated from a single heat source, the heat conducted across to each oven in exactly the correct proportions to provide the different cooking temperatures for roasting, baking and simmering. The radiant heat produced locks in moisture and goodness in food. All three ovens have the low energy setting.
