Britain's best-loved cooker coming to Canada in March PDF Print E-mail
Written by HGO Staff   

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario (04 February 2012) - British appliance manufacturer AGA Marvel will roll-out its redesigned Total Control Range Cooker to the Canadian market next month after showing it off to retailers attending the recent Canadian Home Furnishings Market here.

The company said the new AGA Total Control features state-of-the-art touch screen controls while retaining the classic design values that make the AGA an icon in its native country.

"In Britain, if you are royalty, an established politician, a leading actress, a top model, or something in the City, you are almost presumed to have an AGA," AGA chief executive William McGrath said in a statement.

The first AGA range cooker was invented almost a century ago by engineer and Nobel Prize-winning physicist Gustav Dalen.

The company said that what hasn't changed is the way the AGA cooks. With two large hotplates and three spacious ovens - pre-set at the correct temperature for roasting, simmering, and baking - it helps the user produce what the AGA is famous for - delicious food.

The AGA Total Control Range Cooker, seen here in black, will be available for shipping to Canadian retailers next month.

The AGA radiant heat cast-iron ovens are gentle on food and lock in moisture, texture, and flavor, making it a better way to cook. The Total Control gives the user ten ways to cook: grill, toast, stir fry, fry, simmer, casserole, boil, roast, bake, and steam. "It's extremely versatile, and yet so easy to use," McGrath said.

The new AGA Total Control also vents directly into the room, which allows installation anywhere in the home. Designed to be installed under a conventional cooker hood the new venting system has been developed so that natural heat from the ovens maintains the temperature within the venting system, allowing moisture from the ovens to rise naturally and exit within a specially designed shroud which sits neatly at the back of the top plate between the two cooking zones.

AGA Marvel now has a permanent showroom and sales office in the SOFA annex of the International Centre.

AGA Marvel is a North American subsidiary of AGA Rangemaster. Based in Leamington Spa, England, the company produces under-counter refrigeration products, wine cellars, beverage centers, glass door and solid door refrigerators, ice machines, and beer dispensers, as well as the AGA and Heartland branded lines of ranges, refrigerators, and dishwashers.
