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.
