How to use 'Electrikit' electric Aga range cooker conversion hotplates

Using the hotplates is very simple, just turn to the heat you require. The hotplates have 8 settings with 7 being roughly equivalent to your 'hotplate' currently and 4 equivalent to your current 'simmering' plate.

You can run one or both plates at any temperature or none so use them in exactly the same way. From cold to max temperature takes approximately 15mins. 'Electrikit' hotplates, unlike traditional Aga range cookers or basic electric conversions, do not lose heat and can maintain their temperature for as long as you like.

Important note...

  • Running the hotplates at maximum temperature (setting 8) with the lids closed can damage the hotplate surface as it becomes too hot!
