AGA City60 Contemporary
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 oven can be timed to come on and ready to cook when you are.

How the hotplates work
The hotplate operates using a powerful heating element and can be set to either boiling or simmering setting. 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 setting. When set to boiling setting the hotplate reaches temperature in around 11 minutes from cold, while the simmering setting reaches temperature in around 8 minutes. Hotplate settings: Off, Simmer and Boil.
How the ovens work
Using 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 one hour. The lower simmering oven can also be up to full temperature in around one hour. The baking setting will provide a ‘warm to touch’ feel. Oven settings: Off, Roast, Roast & Simmer, Simmer, Bake & Simmer and Bake.
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.
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.
Roasting oven – The roasting oven grills, roasts and bakes bread beautifully.
Simmering oven – The simmering oven is ideal for slow cooking, allowing flavours to develop and making even the toughest meats tender.

“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.
