The AGA R3 Series 100cm Heat-Storage Cookers

A contemporary AGA - on '24/7' yet flexible and controllable


A perfect replacement when it's time to retire your traditional oil, gas or solid fuel AGA; it's on and warm, simple to control and use, controllable and economical.


AGA R3 100-4h in White

No flue needed, cheap to run, no annual servicing, two model options - twin hotplate (like the traditional AGA) or with an induction hob.


It's everything you'd expect of an AGA: welcoming background warmth; true AGA cast-iron roasting oven and hotplate for real AGA radiant-heat cooking; simple electrical connection (two single 13amp sockets); warming oven; a speedy, infra-red grill; low-energy 'economy mode'. All with simple, easy to use controls.

Twin Hotplate

AGA R3 100-4h

AGA R3 Series 100-4h twin-hotplate option

Left-side - Boiling Plate

Like the boiling plate on a traditional AGA - perfect for jam, boiling the kettle, fast frying and of course - AGA Toast.


Right side - Simmering Plate

Both are switched separately to the ovens and to each other so don't need to be on all the time, heat-up from cold is about 40 minutes for the boiling plate and 20 minutes for the simmering plate.

Induction Hob Option

AGA R3 100-4i

AGA R3 Series 100-4i Induction hob option

Left-side - a 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.

Switched separately to the ovens and doesn't need to be on all the time, it can be set to either simmering (20 min heat-up) or boiling (40 min heat-up) temperatures.

The outer area is an unheated resting area, ideal for slower boiling/simmering using part-contact with the heated hotplate.


Right side - 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.

Induction Hob

AGA eR3 100-3i and 100-4i Induction hob

- Defrost / melt (44 C).

- Warm and keep warm (70 C).

- Warm and simmer (90 C).

- Boil-detection for water.



- Heat to frying temperature.

- Timer functions (various).

- Keep simmering or re-boil.

- Boil-detection for water.

- Boil dry detection.

- Pan detection.

- Bridging function (join two zones to make one large one).

Low-Energy 'e' Mode

This reduces energy consumption (and heat to the room).

When in 'e' mode the roasting oven reduces to baking temperature and the baking oven to simmering temperature. Both are still very useable and this setting is ideal for day-to-day cooking.

AGA Installation FAQs

Notes

The AGA R3 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.)

Colours

Available in all colours see colours page for more information.

The AGA R3 has black sidepanels (regardless of the colour you choose for the frontplate).

Electric Supply

Two "Switched, Fused, Spur Connection Points" are recommended

Why not sockets?

The cables are quite big and don't fit in a plug top.


You may have to ask your electrician to adapt an existing cooker switch / outlet (or the 'ring circuit') to fit the spur points - we don't recommend sockets; the cables don't fit in plug tops at all well and a spur connection provides a much safer solution.


Best Practice?

Fit two switched, fused, spur connection points. Both are fine to carry the full 2.8kW for at least as long as they would ever need to and should be fine. Belt and braces we know but better safe than sorry!


The spur points MUST be located to the side of the cooker, NOT behind it.

Ideally mounted in an easily accessible position on the back or side of a cupboard immediately adjacent to the cooker.
