The Next Generation Range Cooker Control System is… HERE!
Why The E-Control System?
With decades of expertise in the heat storage range cooker industry we have been carefully listening to our loyal customers who wanted a reliable yet more up-to-date control system. An Aga cooker fitted with the eControl System solves all of the issues experienced with traditional models. Superior cooking performance, independent control of cooking areas, super fast heat up times, optional ambient heat on demand, significantly reduced running costs and the ability to grill on demand are only some of the benefits. Our patent pending control systems tick all of the boxes!
The localized elements allow the ovens and hobs to recharge significantly faster than traditional models meaning that ovens will not suffer in temperature as a result of hobs being in use and vice-versa. This is achieved by having all areas controlled independently by their own heating element cassettes and thermostats.
Perhaps the most important part of the eControl System is the unique tri-element system where high and low level hidden elements heat the ovens indirectly from all angles. This ensures a balanced cooking experience and allows the user to grill on demand.
The appliance can be left on full to provide full ambient heat or significantly more efficiently by using the ECO mode or turning on at will.
The Evolution of The Range Cooker:
Being the latest and greatest product on the market has it’s advantages. Designing a new product with a user-first approach means that we’ve made a retrofit conversion system that has modern life in mind.

Triple Element Oven System – eControl Cookers use a high and low mounted element system that provides radiant heat from all sides of the cast iron ovens ensuring a balanced cooking experience. The uniquely designed heating cassettes gently hug the cast ovens releasing heat into the correct areas as and when required. Making the transition from a traditional model to a controllable model with eControl does not require you to develop new cooking techniques!
Larger Cooking Hobs – Full size fine machined 350mm steel hobs give significant more cooking space than the smaller 290mm hobs found on traditional models.
Baking or Slow Cooking…You Decide! – Our ingenious system allows you to switch between Slow Cooking and baking oven temperatures in the same oven on all models. For the first time in history you can now own a two oven model that offers roasting, baking and simmering ovens temperatures – problem solved.
Eco Mode – The eControl System offers a unique ECO mode which allows you to drop the overall temperature of the hobs and ovens separately allowing you to take the green choice and further save on running costs when not required. It also enables you to get to cooking temperature faster than from stone cold.
The Green Option – Central to the design of the eControl System has been to revolutionize the environmental impact made by the range cooker. The alternative is now a thing of the past.
No Servicing Costs – Those who have had traditional Aga Cookers in the past will be all too aware for the tedious maintenance and servicing schedule required to keep them running. Wave goodbye to this with the eControl System.
Running Costs Slashed – The eControl System costs a fraction of the cost to run vs traditional models. Our unique system focuses the heat on the areas required and prevents heat loss through smart design.
Pre Heat Function – Use position 2 of the oven dial as a preheat function. This mode employs additional elements to get the cooker up to temperature before thermostatically turning itself off when optimal temperature is achieved.
Fastest Heat Up Times – Unparalleled heat up times with hobs up to temperature in as little as 8 minutes and oven temperatures achieved in as little as 25 minutes.
No Flue or Chimney Required! – The eControl Cooker creates no products of combustion, fumes or harmful gases meaning there is no requirement for a chimney or flue. Better for your home and better for the environment.
Ambient Heat on Tap! – In the colder months the eControl Cooker can be set to provide ambient background heat fulfilling it’s role as the heart of the home as it should. In the warmer months you have the option to reduce temperatures to give off less heat but still have it up to cooking temperature when required.
Aerospace Grade Insulation – Our A++ grade insulation materials focus the heat on the areas that are supposed to be hot. Traditional models are a free for all with heat escaping from every angle resulting in oven temperatures struggling and running costs rocketing. We have it all under control with eControl.
Flexible Assembly Options – All of our eControl Cookers can be assembled at your property or have the have the option to have full workshop pre-assembly with our one-piece delivery assembly kit. Want to take a pre-assembled eControl Cooker to a second

Tri-element Oven System
The top oven high mounted heating cassette serves the roasting oven roof and preheat of the right-hand hob.
A smaller heating cassette between the top and bottom oven provides gentle heat to the top oven floor and sides whilst providing passive heat to the bottom oven.
A low mounted heating cassette underneath the bottom oven provides gentle heat to the bottom oven floor and sides.
The tri-element system critically means that the ovens cook evenly. Although the bottom oven benefits from passive heat it is not reliant upon the upper elements and is independently and thermostatically controlled with its own heating cassette. The result of this is that the bottom oven can benefit from both slow cooking and baking temperatures as dictated by the user controls.
The eControl patent pending hob design provides for full size 350mm machined steel hobs with significantly improved heat up times. A 2000w boiling plate element and 1500w simmering plate element gets each hob up to temperature fast. A super responsive cooking experience is achieved through smart design of the shielded thermostatic chamber which critically allows the hidden thermostats to read and provide a representative hob surface temperature. These hobs can be switched on and off at will or left on for continuous use. If the user decides to leave the hobs on even in ECO mode for prolonged periods the hobs will conduct heat to the top plate and provide ambient heat into the room.
The top right hand oven of an eControl Cooker houses a hidden 1000w element that will be automatically activated when the top oven door is opened and left ajar. This unique feature provides for endless fantastic grilling or last minute browning of dishes!
