AGA Cast Iron Range Running Costs

It used to be a given that the traditional AGA cooker was on all the time. No longer the case with the introduction of the next generation of AGA cast iron ranges built with the 21st century lifestyle in mind.  The AGA Total Control, AGA Dual Control and AGA City24 give controllable features which allow the owner to have much more control over their AGA range’s energy consumption.

Below you can find information on the running costs of our most popular models.

Please note:

  • Once an AGA range is up to temperature, it uses little energy to maintain the temperature
  • During the summer, energy consumption may be less if you are not using the ovens i.e. cooking quick meals on the hotplate
  • Each of our AGA ranges have been tested by a third party to demonstrate the weekly running costs based on an average weekly menu (shown below). The average weekly menu utilizes the most efficient method of cooking. For example, turning the ovens and hotplates off when they are not required (AGA Total Control, City24 and Dual Control).
  • The cost per kW is dependent on your energy provider.
  • All figures are typical and can vary depending on cooking methods, ambient temperatures and the overall use of the product.
