The new AGA City60 means that everyone – wherever they live and whatever kitchen space they have available – will be able to find an AGA that fits perfectly.

The new AGA City60 is everything you would expect from an AGA, but wrapped up in a smaller, more city-friendly package. At just 60cm wide – the same size as a slot-in cooker or a standard kitchen unit – it’s perfect for small spaces.

And, just like other iconic AGA cookers, it’s made from cast iron and employs radiant heat cooking technology, meaning food taste so much better as all the goodness and moisture is locked in.

The new AGA City60 comes in two design styles, one sleek and contemporary, the other traditional.

There are two ovens, offering roasting, baking and simmering functions and a hotplate, which enables you to boil and simmer. Plus, with programmability on the roasting/baking oven there’s no need to wait for the cooker to heat up.

In the winter you can enjoy the indefinable AGA warmth in the kitchen and in the summer your AGA City60 can be on when you need it and off when you don’t.

The new AGA City60 offers cast-iron proof that you don’t need to live in the country, have a Labrador or be a farmer to enjoy the AGA life.


HOW IT WORKS


The AGA City60 couldn’t be easier to use. With one control knob for the hotplates and another for the ovens, the cooker has been designed with simplicity in mind. The AGA City60’s roasting/baking oven can be programmed and can have up to three events programmed per day. They operate using a timer similar to that used for controlling a central heating programmer. This means the ovens can be timed to come on and ready to cook when you are.

HOW THE HOTPLATES WORK

Pans Choc Revised LargeThe hotplate operates using a powerful heating element and can be set to either boiling or simmering mode. Around the outside of the actual hotplate is a further useable cooking area. This area can be used to simmer on when the hotplate is set to boil, and as a warming plate when the hotplate is in simmering mode. When set to boiling mode the hotplate reaches temperature in around 11 minutes from cold, while the simmering mode reaches temperature in around 8 minutes.

 

Hotplate settings:

  • Off
  • Simmer
  • Boil

HOW THE OVENS WORK

Roasting Oven 07 866X428Using the control knob on the far left of the top plate, the top oven can be set to roasting, baking or the off setting. The roasting and baking settings can be achieved from cold in around 40 minutes (best performance 1 hour). From the baking setting, the oven can be switched up to full heat for roasting in again, around 40 minutes. The lower simmering oven can also be up to full temperature in around 40 minutes. The baking setting will provide a ‘warm to touch’ feel.

City60 DiagramBP/SP) Boiling/Simmering plate – The boiling plate will rapidly bring water to boil for that quick pasta supper. The simmering plate heat is gentle for delicate sauces and heating milk.

1) Roasting oven – The roasting oven grills, roasts and bakes bread beautifully.

1) Baking oven – A moderate oven for baking cakes and biscuits cooking fish, lasagne or a shepherd’s pie. And cooking sweet and savoury dishes together is no problem as the flavours do not mix.

2) Simmering oven – The simmering oven is ideal for slow cooking, allowing flavours to develop and making even the toughest meats tender.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION


“ON WHEN YOU NEED IT, OFF WHEN YOU DON’T”

Since the launch of the AGA Total Control in 2011, there have been electric AGA cookers that can be ‘on when you need them and off when you don’t’. The AGA City60 is the latest addition to the collection of new-generation AGA cookers. The technology used means you are only using energy when you need it, while also enjoying all the benefits of radiant heat cooking.

As the AGA City60’s hotplates and ovens can be turned off by the control knob you are reducing the amount of energy used, providing further potential energy savings.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION TEST

Rigorous testing of the AGA City60 has been undertaken to assess the energy consumption under different conditions of use. The test is based on the same standard menu used for the AGA Total Control and AGA Dual Control to measure energy consumption. Below is a table, which represents one week of typical usage. The findings from this testing are approximate and will depend on ambient conditions, mains voltage supply and variability in manufacturing assembly.

Breakfast Lunch Dinner
Monday * * Left over roast meat, jacket potatoes and vegetables
Tuesday * * Chicken enchilades
Wednesday * * Homemade pizza and oven chips
Thursday * * Pasta with chicken sauce
Friday * * Shepherd’s 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

The energy consumed over one week for this test was around 35kW. 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.

NB – The AGA City60 requires a 32amp connection.
