With newer dual-fuel and fully electric Aga range cookers (which can even be controlled using your iphone!) there is a cooker to suit most homes. There are many options and some special offers available when you go to choose your Aga range cooker so it can seem a bit baffling. We have put together a guide to the options available; we have based this on a standard 2-oven model (where possible) and compared prices for the different fuel types. Prices tend to go up as you add on additional ovens or include separate modules with hotplates for example; but for now we will keep it simple. The basic prices below include delivery and assembly..
Prices stated are based on figures supplied by Aga Ltd. directly but the same prices were also given from an approved independent supplier.

There is a 2-oven night-storage electric model which makes use of cheaper fuel price overnight and is based on the Economy-7 system which is slightly more expensive at £11,295.
New-generation Aga range cookers - Dual Control and Total Control
The new generation ovens are only available in 3-and 5-door options.
Dual control - the 3-door dual-control model is available with either fully electric power or with traditional gas ovens and less-traditional electric hotplates which can be operated independently and switched on and off as necessary. This model has been suggested to reduce running costs by up to 50% and has a low energy setting. You may be concerned about losing the traditional ‘always on’ plates with this model, but we have been assured that the boiling plate takes only 7-minutes to heat up to boil the kettle. This model is suggested for sale at £10,595.
Total control - the Total Control model is fully electric and controlled using a digital unit inside a new door under the badge. Each oven and hotplate can be controlled independently and even programmed to switch on and turn off at separate times of the day; fully programmable for 7-days with two heating cycles per day. This model allows you to turn it off in the summer when you don’t need the unit to be heating the house which will undoubtedly save you money too. This 3-door model is for sale at £11,595.
Each new Aga range cooker is made to order in Britain and available in 11 different colours.
If you are looking to purchase imminently there is an offer currently (as of February 2017) available at Aga Ltd. shops saving you £1,500 off either of the new generation ovens: the Total Control or Dual Control if you trade-in your current model.
