The AGA eR3 Series 160cm 'Everyday' Cookers

A contemporary AGA with the flexibility for Everyday living


AGA Everyday eR3 160-5i in Blush

No flue needed, cheap to run, no annual servicing, optional three-zone induction hob and a high capacity fan oven.


It's everything you'd expect of an AGA: true AGA cast-iron ovens for real AGA radiant-heat cooking, a super-quick, dual function electric hotplate. All with simple, easy to use controls.

Hotplates

Left-side

Low-power simmering plate.


Middle hotplate

Dual-function hotplate: Simmering or boiling.


The outer section is useable and provides extra cooking area (albeit at a lower heat) to the main hot-plate.

Right-Hand Side

Two Options: 1. A handy, durable warming plate.


The eR3 160-5 models have a warming plate at the right-hand side. Not hot enough to cook on but ideal for resting meat, or just getting food ready to serve.

(See below for induction hob option.)

Induction Hob Option

Instead of the large warming plate on the right, the '160i' model has a state-of-the-art two-zone induction hob.


With touch-controls, pan detection and numerous automatic functions the induction hob adds a new level of functionality to your AGA.

Ovens

Two cast-iron AGA radiant heat ovens in the middle section, sheet-metal warming oven and a handy storage space on the right and a 'best-in-class' 90 litre fan oven on the left.


Left - Tall 90 Litre conventional fan oven with two baking trays, four grid shelves and a plate rack.


Upper middle - dual function cast-iron oven that can be set to either roasting (240 C) or baking (190 C) temperature.


Lower middle - simmering and slow-cooking oven (110-120 C).


Upper-right is a storage space, it isn't heated but when the warming oven below is switched on it's just enough to gently warm plates.


Lower right - warming oven (switched separately). For plate and general 'keep-warm' duties.

AGA Installation FAQs

Notes

The AGA eR3 Series doesn't need a raised plinth.


A clearance of 650mm is required above the hob to any surface/extractor.


A clearance of 116mm is required to the left side to allow the oven doors to open far enough so the trays can be slid in and out without being obstructed by the door liner.


There is a 25mm spacer fitted to the back of the cooker which should not be removed.


This ensures the correct gap is maintained to any wall construction and allows the cooker to be fitted up to a plasterboard or 'combustible' wall.


There will always be a small (14mm) gap behind the cooker's top plate to the wall. (Due to the top-plate overhang of the back - see diagram.)

Oven and Hot-plate Temperatures, Sizes and Electrical Load

The eR3 Series 160-5 needs a 32amp cooker circuit and a 13amp socket outlet for the fan oven and simmering plate, those fitted with the induction hob (160-5i) also need an additional 13amp socket outlet.

Pan Storage

(Top Right)

Dimensions

W: 351mm

This is not heated - it's just for storage.

(The plain 'cold shelf' and AGA grid shelf do not fit the runners of the storage compartment; they need to be slid in to the floor of the cavity if you want to store them in here.)

Note

The AGA eR3 Series cast-iron ovens are the same size as any cast-iron heat-storage AGA so all the oven trays, shelves and roasting tins fit the runners.

Options

Colours

Available in all colours - see colours page for more information.

Electric Supply

A 32amp cooker circuit and a 13amp socket outlet are required.


The induction-equipped models also require an additional 13amp socket outlet (for the induction hob).


The switch(es) must be in the same room, within 2m of and NOT BEHIND OR DIRECTLY ABOVE the cooker. In a base unit to its side is ideal.
