AGA R7 ( New Model Dual Control )

AGA Dual Control

The new AGA R7 ( New Model Dual Control ) cooker is very similar to the traditional heat-storage AGA cooker, but with added flexibility. This model is available in all-electric or dual fuel featuring gas (Mains Gas or LPG ) ovens & electric powered hotplates. Using the AGA’s control panel, each hotplate can be operated individually or both together. The roasting, baking & simmering ovens are all controlled together, such that all ovens are on, off or on AGA’s new low-energy setting (electric models). The new model now has 4 different temperature settings. Slumber (190C), Low (230C), Normal (240C), and High (250C). 

You can still run the AGA R7 to supply radiant heat to your kitchen & home and enjoy the ambient AGA warmth in the winter months whilst only using it when you need to in the summer months, offering you the best of both worlds.

The flexibility of the AGA R7 means that you can achieve significantly lower running costs, as little as 50% of the cost of running a 13amp heat-storage AGA cooker. The ovens on the Dual Control AGA take around 8 hours to heat up from cold. From the low-energy setting, the heat up time is usually 2-4 hours.

As well as the flexibility in control, the AGA R7 also offers flexibility with the installation position. With the choice of either external or in-room venting for the all-electric model. The gas DUAL FUEL remains available as it was and has not been redesigned as a 7 Series model, it can be supplied as a conventional or power flue installation. (Note: additional ovens for the 5-oven model always vent into the room).

The R7 Electric and the Dual Control Gas is available with either 3 or 5 ovens. Both offer roasting, baking & simmering ovens, boiling & simmering plates. The 5 oven models offer an additional slow cooking oven, warming oven and a warming plate on the hob.

How it works...

Installation Requirements

The R7 is available as an all electric. The Dual Control Gas is available as (Mains Gas or LPG ). For the R7, A 32amp supply is required for installation and an additional 13 Amp 3-pin plug is required for the 5 oven model. A gas supply and and a conventional flue or power flue system is required for the dual fuel gas model.

Further Options

  • Enamelled lids (chrome lids are fitted as standard)
  • Choice of colour
  • Choice of AGA badge
  • Induction Hob insert (in place of warming plate on 5 oven models)

Energy Consumption

A large proportion of the energy is used via the hotplates on a Traditional AGA cooker, so by being able to turn them off, as with the R7 and the Dual Control Gas, there is a significant saving to be made. The addition of the option to reduce the oven temperatures provides yet further potential energy savings.

Rigorous testing of the AGA R7 and Dual Control Gas has been undertaken to assess the energy consumption under different conditions of use. AGA have commissioned an independent body - GASTEC at CRE to test the AGA R7 and Dual Control Gas. Below is a table, which represents one week of typical usage. The data in these tables is however approximate and will depend on ambient conditions, mains voltage supply and variability in manufacturing assembly.

Low Energy Setting

The energy saving is achieved through dropping the roasting oven to below 200°C. The temperature of the other ovens will also reduce.

Energy Consumption Test

Meals for a week for a family of four (2 adults/2 children):

  Breakfast  Lunch  Dinner
Monday  *  * Left over roast meat, jacket potatoes and vegetables
Tuesday  *  *  Chicken Enchiladas
Wednesday  *  * Homemade pizza and oven chips
Thursday  *  *  Pasta with chicken sauce
Friday  *  * Shepherds pie and vegetables
Saturday

Cooked Breakfast,
Kettle

Soup and bread, kettle Curry, rice and Naan bread
Sunday Croissants, Kettle Roast beef, roast potatoes, Yorkshire pudding, vegetables. Apple pie and custard Cheese on toast, Kettle

* Uncooked breakfasts and lunches for 5 days

The energy consumed over one week for this test was 128kW. When compared against a 13amp 3-oven AGA which uses 240kW, this represents a comparative reduction of around 46%. Clearly there are even greater savings to be made if only the top plates are used (during warmer periods of the year for example) with the ovens turned off.
