The New AGA Total Control Oven (Ratings/Reviews)

The first AGA was actually built by a blind physicist. He wanted to cook with his wife, so he designed the AGA with no knobs or controls. The first AGA ranges were gas and always on, so they emitted a ton of heat into the room. They also had to be directly vented to the outside and installed by a pipe fitter.

The AGA Total Control cooker is a departure from the regular AGA piece. It is 30 inch and electric, so there are no venting or heating issues. The electronic controls serve as a timer so it can be turned on and off like a regular range.  It is cast iron and uses "natural" convection to maintain perfect temperature

In most ways, the Total Control oven is very similar to the regular AGA in terms of aesthetics and performance:

  • Top: Two large burners. One for boiling and the other for sautéing.
  • Oven: Top left is the electronic controls, bottom left is baking at consistent 350 degrees, bottom right is for slow cooking, top right is for roasting at higher heat.
  • Price:  $14,000

Note: We currently do not have AGA on display in our showrooms.

A few review sites have placed this at the bottom of their articles. So here is our take: Our mission is to find reliable products for you to buy. Other review sites may say this as well.

However, we don’t love every product. Quite frankly, it costs us way too much money in repair costs to support less reliable brands.

In fact, we sell fewer brands than most appliance stores. Here is why:

We feel it is our responsibility to repair your appliances after you buy them.

We now have 30 service technicians, each averaging 8-10 calls a day Monday through Friday, plus another 110 on Saturday. That's over 30,000 service calls logged in one year.

The labor rates of fixing an appliance do not come close to the true cost in any product’s warranty period.

That is why no major retailer has a service department. It costs too much labor, money and time.

Our Blog is a bit different than most others you will read. We cannot write glowing reviews of unreliable products.

Hopefully, the bloggers and organizations who write such glowing product reviews for every brand consider servicing these products first. Only then they will understand the consequences of their marketing.

My goal has always been simple: I want Yale to be the best retail experience anywhere. I have tried to create a compelling environment for customers and employees alike.
