“…if you want you can run your converted aga or other range just as you used to BUT you have so much more flexibility available to you now…”
Cooking on it…
1. Independent cooking:
The hobs work independently of each other as does the top oven.
They can all be independently heat controlled meaning you can be frying on one hob, simmering on the other while roasting in the oven or just have on whatever you need when you want it.
“…so in summer you don’t need to suffer oppressive heat from the ovens if all you want is to use the hob…”
2. Improved Heat up times
Heat up times are vastly improved –
• Frying on either hob takes 10 minutes from a cold hob
• Baking at 200 deg c takes the top oven 1 hour 35 minutes from cold to be ready “
… cooking is so much easier as you have more precision with temperatures…”
3. Control Panel
No longer do you need the mercury readout – you control each hob and the top oven from simple and easy to operate controls behind the bottom left hand door (2 door aga)
The hobs have several settings ranging from simmering to boiling temperatures.
“…you can select a specific temperature in your top oven insuring baking etc is so much more accurate…”
4. Timing your oven to come on
You can chose to operate the oven by timer, again to suit yourself, by switching the oven on 1 hour 35 min’s before you need to e.g.
1. Getting up to a warm kitchen
2. Cooking the family meal in the evening
3. Cooking your porridge overnight to be ready for when you get up
5. Remote operation
You can switch the oven ON & OFF remotely using the WEMO switch and App on your mobile phone. Great if you are away from home and want the oven up to temperature for when you arrive back. Simply switch ON with the App when 2 hours away from home.
6. Money saving
As you are only switching on and using energy to cook when you need it you are not paying unnecessarily for the oven to be hot when you are asleep, at work etc
Detailed Engineering Information
The ELECTRICKIT is manufactured in the UK by Oilwarm Limited in Devon.
…so how does it work…
…by converting the heat source to electric we are now able to apply the energy where it is needed and do away with the large cast mass of the combustion chamber and flue ways.
One element powers the ovens (2 door) and the hobs are independently controlled by their own thermostats and separate elements. By removing a large part of this unwanted mass of cast we have radically improved the heat up times i.e. oven from cold takes 1hour 35 min’s to reach 200 deg c. The hobs are now totally independent of the ovens and the reduced mass means you can be frying within 10 minutes from switching either hob on to suit.
The oven temperature is now able to be controlled by a system used on commercial ovens and kilns which is much more robust. You are now able to cook with pinpoint temperature control and as a result with much improved efficiency.
The temperature you set for the top oven is the temperature you get within a few degrees. This is a big improvement on the old operating system where differences have been recorded of up to 20% of the set temperature due to the slow recovery times of the conduction method and the drag / tolerance of the thermostat.
The LED readout shows the temperature of the top oven and the mercury is no longer needed for temperature monitoring.
For 4 oven range cookers an extra element with its own control is added.
2. Electricity Supply
2 x 13 amp 3 pin plugs are required.
You can chose to use 1 or 2 timers, one for the ovens and a second for the hobs if required. These are available on the open market from a large selection to suit your preferences. If you are going away unplug the timer on the oven and insert the WEMO switch if required. This can be purchased as an extra online.
