Frequently Asked Questions

  • AGA Hot Taps
    • Q. When dispensing 98°C water into a cup for tea/coffee making, is not an initial volume of water likely to be cold water held up in the pipe between the tap and boiler from last use? This may not be significant when filling a larger volume such as a teapot or cafetiere, but for a single cup the net result may be water that is considerably less that 98°C in aggregate.
      A. It is normal as with any hot water dispenser that thermal energy is lost by the time it is dispensed into the cup. Therefore, the temperature in the cup is not representative of the tank temperature. In order to reach the highest ‘in cup’ temperatures you should first dispense & dispose a small amount of water to preheat both the system and your cup.

    • Q. Why is the AGA 4-in-1 Tap set at 98°C and not 100°C?
      A. There are three reasons for the temperature of the tank being limited at 98°C. The first is that most teas should be brewed at 98°C or lower. The leaves will cook if the water is boiling at 100°C and can cause a bitter taste to develop. The second reason is to comply with WRAS certification and Part G of the building regulations which does not allow a 100°C product to be fitted in to new build homes. Products that reach 100°C do not comply with these standards so sales to new builds are limited. The third and possibly most important factor is safety. 100°C water spits and spurts during discharge due to the creation of air bubbles when the tank is boiling. In addition boiling water creates excess steam during dispense, which can burn arms when reaching across the tap. By eliminating the drawbacks that occur with using 100°C water, the AGA system are able to deliver the right temperature in a safe and controlled way every time it’s required. The AGA 4-in-1 Tap systems are vented units, which mean that excess steam is released from the boiler and not kept in a pressurised vessel. This means that they are not affected by the pressure directive and that the product uses a pumped system, providing safe, consistent and controlled flow from the spout at all times.
      Q. Will the AGA 4-in-1 Tap fit in to my current sink or worktop?
      A. The AGA 4-in-1 Taps are designed to fit a standard 35mm tap hole. This means a simple like for like replacement for the majority of taps that are fitted in the UK so there is no need to invest in a new sink or worktop to accommodate this product.
      Q. Will the 98°C water damage my sink, especially ceramic material?
      A. Whether the AGA 4-in-1 Tap is used in conjunction with a stainless steel, granite or ceramic sink, there are no issues with using 98°C water. Stainless steel, composite and ceramic materials are produced in part by extreme heating methods so they are inherently suitable for dispensing very hot water in to.
      Q. How do I order spares?
      A. Spares will be available for your AGA 4-in-1 Tap and can be ordered by calling in to your local AGA shop or by calling AGA Consumer Services on 0800 083 0602.
      Q. Where can I order a new Filter Cartridge or Tank Descaler Kit?
      A. A Replacement Filter Cartridge or Tank Descaler Kit can be ordered by contacting your local AGA shop or by calling AGA Consumer Services on 0800 083 0602.
      Q. How long will my Filter Cartridge last?
      A. The length of time that the filter will last depends on a few factors: 1. The water hardness in the area 2. The amount of use through varying size of families or frequency of home cooking As a guide line: In very hard water areas the maximum lifetime of the cartridge is 1,020 litres or 4,000 cups of tea In soft water areas the maximum lifetime of the cartridge is 1,750 litres or 7,000 cups of tea The cartridge may last from anywhere between 6 to 36 months depending on all of these factors.

    • Q. can you tell me if this sits on the shelf rungs or just placed on the base of the aga oven?
      A. Good morning Thank you for your query. This griddle is not designed to fit onto the runners of the AGA. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. Can this be used with the aga total control
      A. Good morning Thank you for your query. Yes, the griddle can be used in the Total Control. If you would like to use this on the floor of the oven, we recommend that it is placed onto a grid shelf at the bottom of the oven. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. Is this product suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher?
      A. Good morning Thank you for your query. The griddle can be washed in the dishwasher, however we recommend that this is hand washed to increase the longevity of the product. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. Can this be used in a Rayburn oven?
      A. Good afternoon Thank you for your query. The cast aluminium griddle will not fit in a Rayburn oven. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. Can this be used on the hot plate?
      A. Good afternoon Thank you for your query. We do not recommend that the oven griddle is used on the hotplate. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. Will there be a griddle for Rayburns, to be used in the same way i.e. oven floor?
      A. Hello Lindsay Thank you for your question. Our Rectangular oven griddle will fit in both AGA and Rayburn cookers. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. Can I use my cast aluminium griddle on the hot plate?
      A. Hi Ishbel, No we do not recommend the cast aluminium griddle is used on the hotplate. It is for oven use. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
      Q. In the instructions for preheating the griddle (alongside where it is being sold online) there is conflicting information. It says 'preheat on the floor of the roasting oven' and then further down 'don't preheat in the roasting oven'. Which is correct please?
      A. Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
      Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison
      A. Dear Alison I find that the timings are about the same as the oven heat does help but that only makes up for the fact that the base of the oven – and therefore the temperature of the new oven griddle – is a little less fierce than when using a pan on the hotter Boiling Plate. When you are baby-sitting several steaks at the same time, this scenario is most welcome as it is harder to over-cook a steak this way when you don’t mean to. My advice is always this, after purchasing the best steaks I can find, i.e. grass-fed for preference, as aged as possible, with a dark garnet colour and nice yellow fat with decent marbling etc.: Pat the steaks dry with lots of kitchen paper when you remove them from the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you are ready to cook them and have a platter warming in the Simmering Oven or Warming Oven ahead of time on which you can rest the steaks once cooked – the thicker they are the longer they benefit from resting: “Sear fast, rest slow” is the most important steak cooking mantra to always have at the forefront of your thinking, on any cooker. If you don’t fancy the hassle of making a sauce, I love the simplicity of a good slug of Dijon mustard stirred into a tub of full-fat crème fraîche to serve to hand with the steaks. Just a thought. Have fun with your new oven griddle. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
      Q. In those rare occasions when gas AGA is switched off for a period of time (holidays etc), could I heat & use this griddle on my induction hob?
      A. Good morning Rachel Thank you for your question. The rectangular oven griddle is not suitable for use on an induction hob. Kind regards AGA Cookshop

    • Q. We would like a wok type pan for our aga that’s not too heavy What do you suggest ? Marian
      A. Dear Marian I would suggest a cast aluminium pan, as this durable metal is strong yet light. Choose from either an AGA cast aluminium wok or a sauté pan – the latter isn’t the classic shape but is more multi-purpose and still gives excellent results for a stir-fry on the AGA Boiling Plate. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

    • Q. Hello I would like to make a Bundt cake but before I purchase one, please could you tell me if it's possible to make a successful Bundt cake in a 2 oven Aga with the cold plain shelf. Thanks for your help Kind regards Jane
      A. Dear Jane, Yes, you can do this. I have a Nordic Ware one made of aluminium (non-stick lined) and it works fine using the normal 2 oven AGA baking method: bake on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from the top. As with most baking in an AGA, turn the tin around about halftime to even up the browning. If you needed to give is a slightly more moderate bake (perhaps a very rich mixture, maybe a luxury chocolate one, where the conventional recipe suggests a 160°C (325°F), Gas Mark 3 setting in a conventional cooker, then you can instead bake it with it sitting in a full-size AGA roasting tin hanging on the lowest set of runners, again with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners. Ideally use one of the original plain aluminium (or hard anodised ones if not) rather than one of the current enamelled steel roasting tins for this, as aluminium has better thermal properties. The reason this gives a more temperate bake is that the tapered sides of the roasting tin afford the Bundt tin extra protection from the radiant heat from the sides of the oven. This scenario is halfway to the conditions found in the AGA Cake Baker. If your chosen Bundt tin fits in the AGA Cake Baker (the carrier it contains three cake tins; the largest is 8-inch (20cm), to give you a rough guide to what it will accommodate), then you can also bake a Bundt tin in this. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I want to purchase a good quality roaster with a flat base which will lie flat on my Aga hot plate. Do Aga have a product? If not can you recommend? Any suggestions would be welcomed. John
        A. Dear John This is the baby to consider: http://www.agacookshop.co.uk/aga-cast-aluminium-rectangular-double-roaster.html It is primarily sold to my mind for covered roasting in a conventional oven, keeping the oven itself from getting too dirty from splashes. As roasting strictly speaking is defined “cooking of food using radiant dry heat” (Larousse Gastronomique), such use is not really roasting at all, but baking, but that is not your concern. The Aga Roasting Oven does fulfil the requirement as it uses radiant heat as the primary means of transferring heat to the food being cooked and it is a dry environment, as steam is not contained (as with the covered roaster), but taken away by means of the oven venting system. Where this utensil will hopefully score for you is used for roasting without its lid. Then it will continue to roast using radiant heat. The 6mm flat base can also be used on the Aga hotplates and makes excellent conduct when you want to finish the dish by making gravy or a sauce in the base, both when making the roux and when you whisk in the liquids. The lid is also a ridged griddle and works on the Aga Boiling Plate to grill steaks, chops, cutlets and meatier cuts of fish such as tuna, marlin and swordfish. It is also good with chicken breasts for a chicken Caesar salad and for cooking liver, plus of course for griddling any vegetables: I use it for aubergine slices when making mousakka. Its final use of course is as an excellent casserole: brown the meat in batches in the large base, placing each batch in turn when well browned in the upturned lid. Then continue with the alliums and so on and then return the resting ingredients to the base, add the remaining items and pour over the stock, wine or beer etc. Its base will come quickly to simmering point before you give a couple of minutes on the Simmering Plate. Cover and transfer to the Simmering Oven to cook “low and slow” for 2-4 hours, depending on the cut of meat. The only drawback is that this utensil has to be used front to back in the ovens; it is not designed to hang from the oven runners like the normal Aga roasting tins. Nevertheless, I think it is perfect for what you have described. I hope that helps. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Assuring you of our best attention at all times. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I have one of these dishes and the base of the dish and the skillet lid is continually getting covered in a black/grey film that stains dish cloths, hands etc. We use the dish and lid on a gas AGA hob as well as the AGA plates. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks
        A. Dear Gavin The black-grey film to which you refer is aluminium oxide and this is produced when the exposed surface of the aluminium bases are allowed to come into contact with any strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which is the main active ingredient found in dishwasher detergents of all types. I imagine therefore that you have been washing this up in a dishwasher. We would recommend hand washing this product using handwashing detergent which will not cause this problem. To remove the current light deposits before changing to hand washing, use a little washing up liquid on the base and a little bit of elbow grease rubbing with a Scotchbrite green scouring pad or something similar. This will abrade the current aluminium oxide deposits and you will return to not having grey-streaked dishcloths etc. You can also use either of the AGA cleaning pastes if you have them and they will work even better. Once cleaned, rinse and dry off with a damp dishcloth and then place a drop of vegetable oil on the newly cleaned surfaces and wipe all over and then off using a piece of kitchen paper.

      • Q. Hello. I am looking to buy a frying pan for my Aga. The important thing is that it sits flat and has even heat distribution. I also need to be able to cook at night heat without worrying. Which k e would you suggest? It's a traditional frying pan I am after as I already have a sauté pan. Many thanks Caroline
        A. Dear Caroline All AGA branded pans sit flat and have even heat distribution and all can be used at night in the ovens if so desired. I would suggest you consider one of the cast aluminium non-stick lined AGA frying pans – they are our best sellers and work extremely well. I hope that helps.

      • Q. Would you recommend this pan for boiling milk on the AGA?
        A. Dear Margaret, Without doubt the best by far is one of the cast aluminium AGA pans, which are non-stick. The excellent heat conductive properties of aluminium make them super-efficient with their 6mm machine finished bases and the non-stick is of excellent quality: I don’t use a lot of non-stick utensils but this is one of the few “must haves” in my kitchen. I only use if for heating milk, making white sauce, scrambled eggs and occasionally porridge. Washing up for all of these is an absolute breeze using just a sponge and a little washing up liquid. This pan comes with a lid which forms a very good seal, important if you also want to use it to make overnight AGA porridge in the Simmering Oven with traditional oatmeal. The smaller, 16cm version has a pouring lip which is not sealed by its lid; if you only want it for heating milk, then you might prefer this one, but the one I have suggested is more versatile due to its sealing lid. Even though it is non-stick I have found over the years that it is always worth rinsing out a milk pan with cold water for a few seconds before pouring in the cold milk and heating it on the AGA Simmering Plate. Likewise, once emptied, immediately fill with cold water; both these tips make the washing up even easier and faster. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        A. Good Morning Julia Thank you for your question. The internal depth of the stainless steel saute pan is approximately 6cm.
        Q. What is the difference in the handles of the Aga and Rayburn sauté pans. I need to make a decision of which one to buy. Although I have an Aga the Rayburn branded pan looks to have a more comfortable handle. Is this the only difference in the similar pans. Would appreciate a quick reply as I would like to take
        A. Good morning Mrs Buchanan Thank you for your query. The Rayburn Saute casserole features our older stainless steel design. Both have stacking lids but the main differences are the handles which are larger and easier to grab on the AGA new design stainless steel, along with a brushed finish rather than a shiny finish on the older style Rayburn saute casserole.

I can also confirm that this pan (including body, lid and knob) does fit in all AGA ovens. Best wishes, AGA Cookshop.
        Q. I am contemplating buying the Aga stockpan/preserving pan, for making jam and marmalade on an Aga and sometimes on a conventional cooker. Have you used it yourself to make jam and marmalade and is it as good as the old conventional jam pan? I like the idea of the solid thick base and having a lid, yet is not as open a pan as the conventional Jam pan. Will that matter and make a difference to setting etc? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Diana Yes, I have used it and, in fact, I prefer this design to the traditional jam pan design with either the wide, shallow base or the maslin type with the tapered sides and pail handle. On a conventional domestic electric or gas cooker, boiling jam or marmalade for a set is a big ask, as a large pan base has to fit over a relatively modest heat source. The rolling boil called for can sometimes be more of an over-enthusiastic simmer to be honest; with the AGA cookers large hotplates, provided these are kept scrupulously clean, when you apply a large AGA pan, there is a large disk of hot metal applied to the whole of the base of the pan. If you pre-heat your sugar in a full-size AGA roasting tin in the Simmering Oven for half an hour before you need it, to really heat it up (but it won’t get so hot that it will melt), remove this and add to the simmered and tender fruit in the pan on the Simmering Plate. At the same time, slide in another full-size AGA roasting tin full of your jars to sterilise whilst you complete the jam making. Stir the sugar with the pan still on the Simmering Plate until you are sure that every grain has fully dissolved. When you transfer the pan to the Boiling Plate you will be very impressed: it will very quickly begin to seethe and give you a very healthy rolling boil. You will find that setting point is reach much more easily and quickly. Test using your preferred setting test; I favour well-chilled saucers from the refrigerator, but any of the various setting tests can of course be used. As boiling for a set is much faster, you will be rewarded with bright, jewel-like scarlet berry jams rather than muddy brown versions produced from slower boiling that is all too often the case on a conventional cooker. This pan will also fit into the Simmering Oven, so you can often cook the fruit here until tender, before adding the warmed sugar, after five minutes’ or so cooking on the top of the cooker to start things off. When making marmalade, you can cook the Seville oranges whole in water in the covered pan overnight. In the morning, take the pan out and leave uncovered to cool down whilst you have breakfast – put the sugar in the Simmering Oven to heat up. When cool enough to handle, the tender cooked oranges can then be really easily halved and the pulp scooped out and the pips reserved for placing in a muslin bag etc. You will find that it is really easy to slice the cooked peel into whatever thickness of strips you prefer – an absolute doddle compared with the traditional method of cutting up all that quite hard raw peel. The other reason I like this pan is that it is great for making up a bulk batch of stock, soup, casserole, chilli or curry etc. You can also use it for cooking large batches of rice or pasta. The only caveat I would make, as with any cooker, is that I think you will get the best results when making jams when boiling for a set with a single recipe; if you want to double up, do so for the cooking of the fruit, but divide back into two batches and add the sugar to each and cook at two different times – trying to boil for a set with a large batch will never work as well on any cooker in any pan as with a normal-sized batch. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. This griddle is not designed to fit onto the runners of the AGA. Kind regards AGA Cookshop

        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. Yes, the griddle can be used in the Total Control. If you would like to use this on the floor of the oven, we recommend that it is placed onto a grid shelf at the bottom of the oven. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Is this product suitable for cleaning in the dishwasher?
        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. The griddle can be washed in the dishwasher, however we recommend that this is hand washed to increase the longevity of the product. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Can this be used in a Rayburn oven?

        Q. Will there be a griddle for Rayburns, to be used in the same way i.e. oven floor?
        A. Hello Lindsay Thank you for your question. Our Rectangular oven griddle will fit in both AGA and Rayburn cookers. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Can I use my cast aluminium griddle on the hot plate?
        A. Hi Ishbel, No we do not recommend the cast aluminium griddle is used on the hotplate. It is for oven use. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. In the instructions for preheating the griddle (alongside where it is being sold online) there is conflicting information. It says 'preheat on the floor of the roasting oven' and then further down 'don't preheat in the roasting oven'. Which is correct please?
        A. Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison
        A. Dear Alison I find that the timings are about the same as the oven heat does help but that only makes up for the fact that the base of the oven – and therefore the temperature of the new oven griddle – is a little less fierce than when using a pan on the hotter Boiling Plate. When you are baby-sitting several steaks at the same time, this scenario is most welcome as it is harder to over-cook a steak this way when you don’t mean to. My advice is always this, after purchasing the best steaks I can find, i.e. grass-fed for preference, as aged as possible, with a dark garnet colour and nice yellow fat with decent marbling etc.: Pat the steaks dry with lots of kitchen paper when you remove them from the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you are ready to cook them and have a platter warming in the Simmering Oven or Warming Oven ahead of time on which you can rest the steaks once cooked – the thicker they are the longer they benefit from resting: “Sear fast, rest slow” is the most important steak cooking mantra to always have at the forefront of your thinking, on any cooker. If you don’t fancy the hassle of making a sauce, I love the simplicity of a good slug of Dijon mustard stirred into a tub of full-fat crème fraîche to serve to hand with the steaks. Just a thought. Have fun with your new oven griddle. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. In those rare occasions when gas AGA is switched off for a period of time (holidays etc), could I heat & use this griddle on my induction hob?

      • Q. We would like a wok type pan for our aga that’s not too heavy What do you suggest ? Marian
        A. Dear Marian I would suggest a cast aluminium pan, as this durable metal is strong yet light. Choose from either an AGA cast aluminium wok or a sauté pan – the latter isn’t the classic shape but is more multi-purpose and still gives excellent results for a stir-fry on the AGA Boiling Plate. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. I purchased a Baker’s Paddle about 2 years ago. I have tried on numerous occasions to use the paddle to transfer my freshly made pizza to the floor of the oven but always with disastrous effect. I find the pizza sticks and will not slide off the paddle. I have tried coating the paddle with semolina and also with flour on other occasions but neither seem to help. I persuaded my husband that I needed this rather costly item and have been left well and truly with egg on my face!! The paddle is currently living peacefully in the pantry never to be used again unless I can find a solution to this sticky problem. Please can you help? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Tina Using semolina or flour as a dry lubricant or release agent is absolutely the route to go. As this isn’t working my first thought is that your pizza dough is erring on the wet side. The usual way describe the correct texture for a yeast dough is “silky”: I would suggest you work in a little more strong white bread flour next time and you should be good to go, again using some semolina, polenta or flour. My advice would be to have a dummy run when your husband isn’t around before you show off. We are on the third version of AGA pizza baker’s paddle and all have sold well over the last 10 years or so with great feedback, so I am sure if you persevere with a slightly dryer dough all will be well. A final thought: I also use mine to manoeuvre a ceramic flan dish from the back of the floor of the oven to the front, before picking it up with an AGA gauntlet, so it does have other uses. Please do let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        A. Dear Jon You need to use a long-handled AGA wire brush and some elbow grease. It isn’t as hard as it sounds, but you do need this tool to do the job. Take care only to work on the hotplate itself, don’t allow the wire brush to get near to the black enamelled top plate or the outer insulating ring of cast-iron, if your AGA is a traditional model.

        Q. Which colour of enamel will this repair? I have a cream aga. Will this be suitable? Thank you.
        A. Good afternoon. The repair kit is a filler kit ideal for minor repair work and comes with a filler and hardener which are mixed together and applied to the damaged area. You would then need to apply the correct colour using a touch up stick. The code for the AGA cream touch-up stick is W3188. If the damage is a minor scratch then you would only need to purchase the cream AGA touch-up stick. Kind Regards AGA Cookshop.
        Q. can this be used while the AGA is running or does it need to be applied only when it is cold?

        Q. When using the cake baker how do you convert cooking times? Do all cakes only take 45-55 mins or do fruit cakes take longer than other cakes? Would you use cake baker for all types of cake or only long slow cooking cakes? Sheila
        A. Dear Sheila The AGA Cake Baker is designed for large, deep cakes that require 45 minutes’ or longer baking at a moderate temperature. A semi-rich fruit cake in the smallest tin can take as little as 45 minutes but for most cakes of the larger two sizes take anywhere from an hour to 1½ hours. Think of cakes such as cherry cake, most fruit cakes including Dundee cake, Madeira and seed cake et al. Very rich fruit cakes such as wedding cakes and Christmas cake fare better cooked for the whole time from raw in the Simmering Oven – see the AGA Book. Pre-heat the empty ACB base and lid on the floor of the oven whilst you line the tin and make the cake. The lid needs to be hot as otherwise in the early stage of baking steam would otherwise condense on the lid and drops of water would drip down and mark the top of the cake. A big advantage of the ACB is that you can still cook high temperature foods at the same time, e.g. frying on the floor of the Roasting Oven with the ACB at the rear of the oven and/or bake scones or puff pastry at the top of the oven, even over the ACB. If you want to make the ACB even more moderate than its normal setting, set it on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven: by cutting of direct conducted base heat to the ACB you obtain an even mellower baking environment; I use this when baking an enriched cake where there is a risk of scorching an ingredient, e.g. a flourless chocolate chiffon cake. You can also use the ACB to bake two 1 lb loaf tins of something like a tea loaf. Place the ACB on a grid shelf with its lid to pre-heat. Place one tin in the carrier and cook in the ACB towards the rear of the oven. Place the second tin on the grid shelf in front of the ACB and protect with a “N” tent of double-folded aluminium foil. The ACB plus the tent together will afford the second loaf tin sufficient protection. Remember that for the following cakes you should not be using the ACB: a Victoria sandwich in two tins or one deeper tin, traybakes, Swiss roll, brownies and blondies and for all sponges. Here you bake low down in the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from above. Turn the tin(s) at half-time. If the mixture is very deep and will take longer than 25-30 minutes to cook through, replace the now hot plain shelf with a fresh cold one (or improvise with a full-size hard anodised AGA baking tray or even a full-size AGA roasting tin. For a full explanation of all the different AGA baking techniques for a two-oven AGA, see the baking chapter in my, “Complete Book of AGA Know-How”, Absolute Press, available from your AGA shop or Distributor or online from www.agacookshop.co.uk .

      • Q. I purchased a Baker’s Paddle about 2 years ago. I have tried on numerous occasions to use the paddle to transfer my freshly made pizza to the floor of the oven but always with disastrous effect. I find the pizza sticks and will not slide off the paddle. I have tried coating the paddle with semolina and also with flour on other occasions but neither seem to help. I persuaded my husband that I needed this rather costly item and have been left well and truly with egg on my face!! The paddle is currently living peacefully in the pantry never to be used again unless I can find a solution to this sticky problem. Please can you help? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Tina Using semolina or flour as a dry lubricant or release agent is absolutely the route to go. As this isn’t working my first thought is that your pizza dough is erring on the wet side. The usual way describe the correct texture for a yeast dough is “silky”: I would suggest you work in a little more strong white bread flour next time and you should be good to go, again using some semolina, polenta or flour. My advice would be to have a dummy run when your husband isn’t around before you show off. We are on the third version of AGA pizza baker’s paddle and all have sold well over the last 10 years or so with great feedback, so I am sure if you persevere with a slightly dryer dough all will be well. A final thought: I also use mine to manoeuvre a ceramic flan dish from the back of the floor of the oven to the front, before picking it up with an AGA gauntlet, so it does have other uses. Please do let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I have one of these dishes and the base of the dish and the skillet lid is continually getting covered in a black/grey film that stains dish cloths, hands etc. We use the dish and lid on a gas AGA hob as well as the AGA plates. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks
        A. Dear Gavin The black-grey film to which you refer is aluminium oxide and this is produced when the exposed surface of the aluminium bases are allowed to come into contact with any strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which is the main active ingredient found in dishwasher detergents of all types. I imagine therefore that you have been washing this up in a dishwasher. We would recommend hand washing this product using handwashing detergent which will not cause this problem. To remove the current light deposits before changing to hand washing, use a little washing up liquid on the base and a little bit of elbow grease rubbing with a Scotchbrite green scouring pad or something similar. This will abrade the current aluminium oxide deposits and you will return to not having grey-streaked dishcloths etc. You can also use either of the AGA cleaning pastes if you have them and they will work even better. Once cleaned, rinse and dry off with a damp dishcloth and then place a drop of vegetable oil on the newly cleaned surfaces and wipe all over and then off using a piece of kitchen paper.

        A. Dear Mike If you are baking the bread with the grid shelf on the bottom set of runners, this would indeed give you the problem you describe. Bake loaves of bread in tins on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven. Bake for around 25-30 minutes, turning the tins around halfway through cooking. I hope that helps.

        A. Hi Ishbel, No we do not recommend the cast aluminium griddle is used on the hotplate. It is for oven use. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. In the instructions for preheating the griddle (alongside where it is being sold online) there is conflicting information. It says 'preheat on the floor of the roasting oven' and then further down 'don't preheat in the roasting oven'. Which is correct please?
        A. Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison
        A. Dear Alison I find that the timings are about the same as the oven heat does help but that only makes up for the fact that the base of the oven – and therefore the temperature of the new oven griddle – is a little less fierce than when using a pan on the hotter Boiling Plate. When you are baby-sitting several steaks at the same time, this scenario is most welcome as it is harder to over-cook a steak this way when you don’t mean to. My advice is always this, after purchasing the best steaks I can find, i.e. grass-fed for preference, as aged as possible, with a dark garnet colour and nice yellow fat with decent marbling etc.: Pat the steaks dry with lots of kitchen paper when you remove them from the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you are ready to cook them and have a platter warming in the Simmering Oven or Warming Oven ahead of time on which you can rest the steaks once cooked – the thicker they are the longer they benefit from resting: “Sear fast, rest slow” is the most important steak cooking mantra to always have at the forefront of your thinking, on any cooker. If you don’t fancy the hassle of making a sauce, I love the simplicity of a good slug of Dijon mustard stirred into a tub of full-fat crème fraîche to serve to hand with the steaks. Just a thought. Have fun with your new oven griddle. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. We would like a wok type pan for our aga that’s not too heavy What do you suggest ? Marian
        A. Dear Marian I would suggest a cast aluminium pan, as this durable metal is strong yet light. Choose from either an AGA cast aluminium wok or a sauté pan – the latter isn’t the classic shape but is more multi-purpose and still gives excellent results for a stir-fry on the AGA Boiling Plate. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. Hello I would like to make a Bundt cake but before I purchase one, please could you tell me if it's possible to make a successful Bundt cake in a 2 oven Aga with the cold plain shelf. Thanks for your help Kind regards Jane
        A. Dear Jane, Yes, you can do this. I have a Nordic Ware one made of aluminium (non-stick lined) and it works fine using the normal 2 oven AGA baking method: bake on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from the top. As with most baking in an AGA, turn the tin around about halftime to even up the browning. If you needed to give is a slightly more moderate bake (perhaps a very rich mixture, maybe a luxury chocolate one, where the conventional recipe suggests a 160°C (325°F), Gas Mark 3 setting in a conventional cooker, then you can instead bake it with it sitting in a full-size AGA roasting tin hanging on the lowest set of runners, again with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners. Ideally use one of the original plain aluminium (or hard anodised ones if not) rather than one of the current enamelled steel roasting tins for this, as aluminium has better thermal properties. The reason this gives a more temperate bake is that the tapered sides of the roasting tin afford the Bundt tin extra protection from the radiant heat from the sides of the oven. This scenario is halfway to the conditions found in the AGA Cake Baker. If your chosen Bundt tin fits in the AGA Cake Baker (the carrier it contains three cake tins; the largest is 8-inch (20cm), to give you a rough guide to what it will accommodate), then you can also bake a Bundt tin in this. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. I purchased a Baker’s Paddle about 2 years ago. I have tried on numerous occasions to use the paddle to transfer my freshly made pizza to the floor of the oven but always with disastrous effect. I find the pizza sticks and will not slide off the paddle. I have tried coating the paddle with semolina and also with flour on other occasions but neither seem to help. I persuaded my husband that I needed this rather costly item and have been left well and truly with egg on my face!! The paddle is currently living peacefully in the pantry never to be used again unless I can find a solution to this sticky problem. Please can you help? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Tina Using semolina or flour as a dry lubricant or release agent is absolutely the route to go. As this isn’t working my first thought is that your pizza dough is erring on the wet side. The usual way describe the correct texture for a yeast dough is “silky”: I would suggest you work in a little more strong white bread flour next time and you should be good to go, again using some semolina, polenta or flour. My advice would be to have a dummy run when your husband isn’t around before you show off. We are on the third version of AGA pizza baker’s paddle and all have sold well over the last 10 years or so with great feedback, so I am sure if you persevere with a slightly dryer dough all will be well. A final thought: I also use mine to manoeuvre a ceramic flan dish from the back of the floor of the oven to the front, before picking it up with an AGA gauntlet, so it does have other uses. Please do let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        A. Hi Ishbel, No we do not recommend the cast aluminium griddle is used on the hotplate. It is for oven use. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. In the instructions for preheating the griddle (alongside where it is being sold online) there is conflicting information. It says 'preheat on the floor of the roasting oven' and then further down 'don't preheat in the roasting oven'. Which is correct please?
        A. Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison

      • Q. Can the enamelled roasting tin be used on the simmering plate, when making gravy after roasting a joint? I've just acquired mine with a new Aga, but the anodised (Aga brand) roasting tin I used on my old Aga quickly buckled and became convex, so never sat flat on the simmering plate. I'd rather the new one didn't do the same! I've always made gravy in the tin used for roasting and wouldn't want to do it any other way.
        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. Our roasting tins are not designed for use on the hot plates.

        Q. When using the cake baker how do you convert cooking times? Do all cakes only take 45-55 mins or do fruit cakes take longer than other cakes? Would you use cake baker for all types of cake or only long slow cooking cakes? Sheila
        A. Dear Sheila The AGA Cake Baker is designed for large, deep cakes that require 45 minutes’ or longer baking at a moderate temperature. A semi-rich fruit cake in the smallest tin can take as little as 45 minutes but for most cakes of the larger two sizes take anywhere from an hour to 1½ hours. Think of cakes such as cherry cake, most fruit cakes including Dundee cake, Madeira and seed cake et al. Very rich fruit cakes such as wedding cakes and Christmas cake fare better cooked for the whole time from raw in the Simmering Oven – see the AGA Book. Pre-heat the empty ACB base and lid on the floor of the oven whilst you line the tin and make the cake. The lid needs to be hot as otherwise in the early stage of baking steam would otherwise condense on the lid and drops of water would drip down and mark the top of the cake. A big advantage of the ACB is that you can still cook high temperature foods at the same time, e.g. frying on the floor of the Roasting Oven with the ACB at the rear of the oven and/or bake scones or puff pastry at the top of the oven, even over the ACB. If you want to make the ACB even more moderate than its normal setting, set it on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven: by cutting of direct conducted base heat to the ACB you obtain an even mellower baking environment; I use this when baking an enriched cake where there is a risk of scorching an ingredient, e.g. a flourless chocolate chiffon cake. You can also use the ACB to bake two 1 lb loaf tins of something like a tea loaf. Place the ACB on a grid shelf with its lid to pre-heat. Place one tin in the carrier and cook in the ACB towards the rear of the oven. Place the second tin on the grid shelf in front of the ACB and protect with a “N” tent of double-folded aluminium foil. The ACB plus the tent together will afford the second loaf tin sufficient protection. Remember that for the following cakes you should not be using the ACB: a Victoria sandwich in two tins or one deeper tin, traybakes, Swiss roll, brownies and blondies and for all sponges. Here you bake low down in the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from above. Turn the tin(s) at half-time. If the mixture is very deep and will take longer than 25-30 minutes to cook through, replace the now hot plain shelf with a fresh cold one (or improvise with a full-size hard anodised AGA baking tray or even a full-size AGA roasting tin. For a full explanation of all the different AGA baking techniques for a two-oven AGA, see the baking chapter in my, “Complete Book of AGA Know-How”, Absolute Press, available from your AGA shop or Distributor or online from www.agacookshop.co.uk .

      • Q. Would you recommend this pan for boiling milk on the AGA?
        A. Dear Margaret, Without doubt the best by far is one of the cast aluminium AGA pans, which are non-stick. The excellent heat conductive properties of aluminium make them super-efficient with their 6mm machine finished bases and the non-stick is of excellent quality: I don’t use a lot of non-stick utensils but this is one of the few “must haves” in my kitchen. I only use if for heating milk, making white sauce, scrambled eggs and occasionally porridge. Washing up for all of these is an absolute breeze using just a sponge and a little washing up liquid. This pan comes with a lid which forms a very good seal, important if you also want to use it to make overnight AGA porridge in the Simmering Oven with traditional oatmeal. The smaller, 16cm version has a pouring lip which is not sealed by its lid; if you only want it for heating milk, then you might prefer this one, but the one I have suggested is more versatile due to its sealing lid. Even though it is non-stick I have found over the years that it is always worth rinsing out a milk pan with cold water for a few seconds before pouring in the cold milk and heating it on the AGA Simmering Plate. Likewise, once emptied, immediately fill with cold water; both these tips make the washing up even easier and faster. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. What are the dimensions of this? Is it Half Size or Full Size?
        A. Dear Stephen, Thank you for your e mail. The dimensions for the baking tray is 34.2cm x 23.5cm with a depth of 3cm. Best wishes, AGA Cookshop.
        Q. I have a Portmeirion baking dish. Can I place it on the floor of the roasting oven?
        A. Dear Susan Yes, you can use this on the floor of the AGA Roasting Oven, its base is finished nice and flat (and thick) for this exact reason. Here’s a neat trick to know about this product: you can make an assembled layered dish, such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, fish pie, et al. and freeze it. If you need to, you can cook it from frozen on the base of the Roasting Oven floor and it won’t crack. It will obviously take about 50% longer to cook than if it was freshly made or taken from the ‘fridge, but it is really useful to be able to do this on occasion. I hope that helps.

        A. Good morning Mrs Buchanan Thank you for your query. The Rayburn Saute casserole features our older stainless steel design.

      • Q. Measurements of the preserving pan please. Capacity and measurements to see if it will fit in simmering oven to use as slow cooker for large amounts of lamb shanks as well as preserving. Thank you.
        A. Dear Susan, Thank you for your question. The total capacity for the preserving pan is 11 litres, diameter of the pan is 28cm and height is 19cm (not including the lid and knob). I can also confirm that this pan (including body, lid and knob) does fit in all AGA ovens. Best wishes, AGA Cookshop.
        Q. I am contemplating buying the Aga stockpan/preserving pan, for making jam and marmalade on an Aga and sometimes on a conventional cooker. Have you used it yourself to make jam and marmalade and is it as good as the old conventional jam pan? I like the idea of the solid thick base and having a lid, yet is not as open a pan as the conventional Jam pan. Will that matter and make a difference to setting etc? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Diana Yes, I have used it and, in fact, I prefer this design to the traditional jam pan design with either the wide, shallow base or the maslin type with the tapered sides and pail handle. On a conventional domestic electric or gas cooker, boiling jam or marmalade for a set is a big ask, as a large pan base has to fit over a relatively modest heat source. The rolling boil called for can sometimes be more of an over-enthusiastic simmer to be honest; with the AGA cookers large hotplates, provided these are kept scrupulously clean, when you apply a large AGA pan, there is a large disk of hot metal applied to the whole of the base of the pan. If you pre-heat your sugar in a full-size AGA roasting tin in the Simmering Oven for half an hour before you need it, to really heat it up (but it won’t get so hot that it will melt), remove this and add to the simmered and tender fruit in the pan on the Simmering Plate. At the same time, slide in another full-size AGA roasting tin full of your jars to sterilise whilst you complete the jam making. Stir the sugar with the pan still on the Simmering Plate until you are sure that every grain has fully dissolved. When you transfer the pan to the Boiling Plate you will be very impressed: it will very quickly begin to seethe and give you a very healthy rolling boil. You will find that setting point is reach much more easily and quickly. Test using your preferred setting test; I favour well-chilled saucers from the refrigerator, but any of the various setting tests can of course be used. As boiling for a set is much faster, you will be rewarded with bright, jewel-like scarlet berry jams rather than muddy brown versions produced from slower boiling that is all too often the case on a conventional cooker. This pan will also fit into the Simmering Oven, so you can often cook the fruit here until tender, before adding the warmed sugar, after five minutes’ or so cooking on the top of the cooker to start things off. When making marmalade, you can cook the Seville oranges whole in water in the covered pan overnight. In the morning, take the pan out and leave uncovered to cool down whilst you have breakfast – put the sugar in the Simmering Oven to heat up. When cool enough to handle, the tender cooked oranges can then be really easily halved and the pulp scooped out and the pips reserved for placing in a muslin bag etc. You will find that it is really easy to slice the cooked peel into whatever thickness of strips you prefer – an absolute doddle compared with the traditional method of cutting up all that quite hard raw peel. The other reason I like this pan is that it is great for making up a bulk batch of stock, soup, casserole, chilli or curry etc. You can also use it for cooking large batches of rice or pasta. The only caveat I would make, as with any cooker, is that I think you will get the best results when making jams when boiling for a set with a single recipe; if you want to double up, do so for the cooking of the fruit, but divide back into two batches and add the sugar to each and cook at two different times – trying to boil for a set with a large batch will never work as well on any cooker in any pan as with a normal-sized batch. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. Would you recommend this pan for boiling milk on the AGA?
        A. Dear Margaret, Without doubt the best by far is one of the cast aluminium AGA pans, which are non-stick. The excellent heat conductive properties of aluminium make them super-efficient with their 6mm machine finished bases and the non-stick is of excellent quality: I don’t use a lot of non-stick utensils but this is one of the few “must haves” in my kitchen. I only use if for heating milk, making white sauce, scrambled eggs and occasionally porridge. Washing up for all of these is an absolute breeze using just a sponge and a little washing up liquid. This pan comes with a lid which forms a very good seal, important if you also want to use it to make overnight AGA porridge in the Simmering Oven with traditional oatmeal. The smaller, 16cm version has a pouring lip which is not sealed by its lid; if you only want it for heating milk, then you might prefer this one, but the one I have suggested is more versatile due to its sealing lid. Even though it is non-stick I have found over the years that it is always worth rinsing out a milk pan with cold water for a few seconds before pouring in the cold milk and heating it on the AGA Simmering Plate. Likewise, once emptied, immediately fill with cold water; both these tips make the washing up even easier and faster. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        A. Good Morning Terry Thank you for your question. The roaster can be used on both the Simmering Plate and the Boiling Plate. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Hi could you please tell me if this roaster slides along the runners of the oven or does it need to sit on a grid shelf?
        A. Good Afternoon Thank you for your query. The handles of the roaster are not designed to fit directly onto the runners of the AGA. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Are the quoted dimensions inclusive of the handles and what is the height when the lid is in place?
        A. Thank you for your query. The dimensions of the cast aluminium roaster are the interior measurements. The height with the lid on is 13cm, and with the lid inverted it is 10.5cm. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. I want to purchase a good quality roaster with a flat base which will lie flat on my Aga hot plate. Do Aga have a product? If not can you recommend? Any suggestions would be welcomed. John
        A. Dear John This is the baby to consider: http://www.agacookshop.co.uk/aga-cast-aluminium-rectangular-double-roaster.html It is primarily sold to my mind for covered roasting in a conventional oven, keeping the oven itself from getting too dirty from splashes. As roasting strictly speaking is defined “cooking of food using radiant dry heat” (Larousse Gastronomique), such use is not really roasting at all, but baking, but that is not your concern. The Aga Roasting Oven does fulfil the requirement as it uses radiant heat as the primary means of transferring heat to the food being cooked and it is a dry environment, as steam is not contained (as with the covered roaster), but taken away by means of the oven venting system. Where this utensil will hopefully score for you is used for roasting without its lid. Then it will continue to roast using radiant heat. The 6mm flat base can also be used on the Aga hotplates and makes excellent conduct when you want to finish the dish by making gravy or a sauce in the base, both when making the roux and when you whisk in the liquids. The lid is also a ridged griddle and works on the Aga Boiling Plate to grill steaks, chops, cutlets and meatier cuts of fish such as tuna, marlin and swordfish. It is also good with chicken breasts for a chicken Caesar salad and for cooking liver, plus of course for griddling any vegetables: I use it for aubergine slices when making mousakka. Its final use of course is as an excellent casserole: brown the meat in batches in the large base, placing each batch in turn when well browned in the upturned lid. Then continue with the alliums and so on and then return the resting ingredients to the base, add the remaining items and pour over the stock, wine or beer etc. Its base will come quickly to simmering point before you give a couple of minutes on the Simmering Plate. Cover and transfer to the Simmering Oven to cook “low and slow” for 2-4 hours, depending on the cut of meat. The only drawback is that this utensil has to be used front to back in the ovens; it is not designed to hang from the oven runners like the normal Aga roasting tins. Nevertheless, I think it is perfect for what you have described. I hope that helps. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Assuring you of our best attention at all times. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. How many people can you cook for if you use the 24 cm casserole and skillet.
        A. Dear Susan, Thank you for your question. The 24cm round casserole with skillet lid holds approx. 3 litres. Best wishes, AGA Cookshop.
        Q. I don't have an AGA, just a dual fuel range cooker. Can these items be used on/in my cooker or are they specifically for AGAs?
        A. Thank you for your query. This versatile casserole can be used in other types of cooker as well as the AGA. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. I have one of these dishes and the base of the dish and the skillet lid is continually getting covered in a black/grey film that stains dish cloths, hands etc. We use the dish and lid on a gas AGA hob as well as the AGA plates. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks
        A. Dear Gavin The black-grey film to which you refer is aluminium oxide and this is produced when the exposed surface of the aluminium bases are allowed to come into contact with any strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which is the main active ingredient found in dishwasher detergents of all types. I imagine therefore that you have been washing this up in a dishwasher. We would recommend hand washing this product using handwashing detergent which will not cause this problem. To remove the current light deposits before changing to hand washing, use a little washing up liquid on the base and a little bit of elbow grease rubbing with a Scotchbrite green scouring pad or something similar. This will abrade the current aluminium oxide deposits and you will return to not having grey-streaked dishcloths etc. You can also use either of the AGA cleaning pastes if you have them and they will work even better. Once cleaned, rinse and dry off with a damp dishcloth and then place a drop of vegetable oil on the newly cleaned surfaces and wipe all over and then off using a piece of kitchen paper.

        A. Dear Lucy, Thank you for your question. The set of Stainless Steel Casseroles will fit inside each other but will not sit flat due to the handles. However they will stack neatly with the lids on - making them easier to access in the kitchen cupboard. We hope that helps. Kind regards AGA Cookshop

        A. Good Morning Julia Thank you for your question. The internal depth of the stainless steel saute pan is approximately 6cm.
        Q. What is the difference in the handles of the Aga and Rayburn sauté pans. I need to make a decision of which one to buy. Although I have an Aga the Rayburn branded pan looks to have a more comfortable handle. Is this the only difference in the similar pans. Would appreciate a quick reply as I would like to take
        A. Good morning Mrs Buchanan Thank you for your query. The Rayburn Saute casserole features our older stainless steel design. Both have stacking lids but the main differences are the handles which are larger and easier to grab on the AGA new design stainless steel, along with a brushed finish rather than a shiny finish on the older style Rayburn saute casserole. Kind regards AGA Cookshop

      • Q. Measurements of the preserving pan please. Capacity and measurements to see if it will fit in simmering oven to use as slow cooker for large amounts of lamb shanks as well as preserving. Thank you.
        A. Dear Susan, Thank you for your question. The total capacity for the preserving pan is 11 litres, diameter of the pan is 28cm and height is 19cm (not including the lid and knob). I can also confirm that this pan (including body, lid and knob) does fit in all AGA ovens. Best wishes, AGA Cookshop.
        Q. I am contemplating buying the Aga stockpan/preserving pan, for making jam and marmalade on an Aga and sometimes on a conventional cooker. Have you used it yourself to make jam and marmalade and is it as good as the old conventional jam pan? I like the idea of the solid thick base and having a lid, yet is not as open a pan as the conventional Jam pan. Will that matter and make a difference to setting etc? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Diana Yes, I have used it and, in fact, I prefer this design to the traditional jam pan design with either the wide, shallow base or the maslin type with the tapered sides and pail handle. On a conventional domestic electric or gas cooker, boiling jam or marmalade for a set is a big ask, as a large pan base has to fit over a relatively modest heat source. The rolling boil called for can sometimes be more of an over-enthusiastic simmer to be honest; with the AGA cookers large hotplates, provided these are kept scrupulously clean, when you apply a large AGA pan, there is a large disk of hot metal applied to the whole of the base of the pan. If you pre-heat your sugar in a full-size AGA roasting tin in the Simmering Oven for half an hour before you need it, to really heat it up (but it won’t get so hot that it will melt), remove this and add to the simmered and tender fruit in the pan on the Simmering Plate. At the same time, slide in another full-size AGA roasting tin full of your jars to sterilise whilst you complete the jam making. Stir the sugar with the pan still on the Simmering Plate until you are sure that every grain has fully dissolved. When you transfer the pan to the Boiling Plate you will be very impressed: it will very quickly begin to seethe and give you a very healthy rolling boil. You will find that setting point is reach much more easily and quickly. Test using your preferred setting test; I favour well-chilled saucers from the refrigerator, but any of the various setting tests can of course be used. As boiling for a set is much faster, you will be rewarded with bright, jewel-like scarlet berry jams rather than muddy brown versions produced from slower boiling that is all too often the case on a conventional cooker. This pan will also fit into the Simmering Oven, so you can often cook the fruit here until tender, before adding the warmed sugar, after five minutes’ or so cooking on the top of the cooker to start things off. When making marmalade, you can cook the Seville oranges whole in water in the covered pan overnight. In the morning, take the pan out and leave uncovered to cool down whilst you have breakfast – put the sugar in the Simmering Oven to heat up. When cool enough to handle, the tender cooked oranges can then be really easily halved and the pulp scooped out and the pips reserved for placing in a muslin bag etc. You will find that it is really easy to slice the cooked peel into whatever thickness of strips you prefer – an absolute doddle compared with the traditional method of cutting up all that quite hard raw peel. The other reason I like this pan is that it is great for making up a bulk batch of stock, soup, casserole, chilli or curry etc. You can also use it for cooking large batches of rice or pasta. The only caveat I would make, as with any cooker, is that I think you will get the best results when making jams when boiling for a set with a single recipe; if you want to double up, do so for the cooking of the fruit, but divide back into two batches and add the sugar to each and cook at two different times – trying to boil for a set with a large batch will never work as well on any cooker in any pan as with a normal-sized batch. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. Can the enamelled roasting tin be used on the simmering plate, when making gravy after roasting a joint? I've just acquired mine with a new Aga, but the anodised (Aga brand) roasting tin I used on my old Aga quickly buckled and became convex, so never sat flat on the simmering plate. I'd rather the new one didn't do the same! I've always made gravy in the tin used for roasting and wouldn't want to do it any other way.
        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. Our roasting tins are not designed for use on the hot plates. However our stainless steel saucepots are the perfect solution as they make contact with the hotplate and can be taken straight to the table to serve from the cooker.

        A. Dear Susan Yes, you can use this on the floor of the AGA Roasting Oven, its base is finished nice and flat (and thick) for this exact reason. Here’s a neat trick to know about this product: you can make an assembled layered dish, such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, fish pie, et al. and freeze it. If you need to, you can cook it from frozen on the base of the Roasting Oven floor and it won’t crack. It will obviously take about 50% longer to cook than if it was freshly made or taken from the ‘fridge, but it is really useful to be able to do this on occasion. I hope that helps.

        Q. AGA Cookery Doctor Top Tip
        A. Safe to use when full from frozen – make and freeze a shepherd’s or fish pie or any layered lasagne dish, cover and freeze. Cook from frozen on the floor of the Roasting Oven (on the floor grid on Total Control or AGA 60 models) and it will defrost and cook without cracking. Allow 50% longer cooking time.

        Q. Hi Can you get a replacement rack for the cake tin to sit in for the cake baker please? Many Thanks
        A. Good Afternoon Thank you for your query. Please can you contact our customer services team on 0345 3452823? They may be able to source this for you. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. When using the cake baker how do you convert cooking times? Do all cakes only take 45-55 mins or do fruit cakes take longer than other cakes? Would you use cake baker for all types of cake or only long slow cooking cakes? Sheila
        A. Dear Sheila The AGA Cake Baker is designed for large, deep cakes that require 45 minutes’ or longer baking at a moderate temperature. A semi-rich fruit cake in the smallest tin can take as little as 45 minutes but for most cakes of the larger two sizes take anywhere from an hour to 1½ hours. Think of cakes such as cherry cake, most fruit cakes including Dundee cake, Madeira and seed cake et al. Very rich fruit cakes such as wedding cakes and Christmas cake fare better cooked for the whole time from raw in the Simmering Oven – see the AGA Book. Pre-heat the empty ACB base and lid on the floor of the oven whilst you line the tin and make the cake. The lid needs to be hot as otherwise in the early stage of baking steam would otherwise condense on the lid and drops of water would drip down and mark the top of the cake. A big advantage of the ACB is that you can still cook high temperature foods at the same time, e.g. frying on the floor of the Roasting Oven with the ACB at the rear of the oven and/or bake scones or puff pastry at the top of the oven, even over the ACB. If you want to make the ACB even more moderate than its normal setting, set it on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven: by cutting of direct conducted base heat to the ACB you obtain an even mellower baking environment; I use this when baking an enriched cake where there is a risk of scorching an ingredient, e.g. a flourless chocolate chiffon cake. You can also use the ACB to bake two 1 lb loaf tins of something like a tea loaf. Place the ACB on a grid shelf with its lid to pre-heat. Place one tin in the carrier and cook in the ACB towards the rear of the oven. Place the second tin on the grid shelf in front of the ACB and protect with a “N” tent of double-folded aluminium foil. The ACB plus the tent together will afford the second loaf tin sufficient protection. Remember that for the following cakes you should not be using the ACB: a Victoria sandwich in two tins or one deeper tin, traybakes, Swiss roll, brownies and blondies and for all sponges. Here you bake low down in the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from above. Turn the tin(s) at half-time. If the mixture is very deep and will take longer than 25-30 minutes to cook through, replace the now hot plain shelf with a fresh cold one (or improvise with a full-size hard anodised AGA baking tray or even a full-size AGA roasting tin. For a full explanation of all the different AGA baking techniques for a two-oven AGA, see the baking chapter in my, “Complete Book of AGA Know-How”, Absolute Press, available from your AGA shop or Distributor or online from www.agacookshop.co.uk . I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I want to purchase a good quality roaster with a flat base which will lie flat on my Aga hot plate. Do Aga have a product? If not can you recommend? Any suggestions would be welcomed. John
        A. Dear John This is the baby to consider: http://www.agacookshop.co.uk/aga-cast-aluminium-rectangular-double-roaster.html It is primarily sold to my mind for covered roasting in a conventional oven, keeping the oven itself from getting too dirty from splashes. As roasting strictly speaking is defined “cooking of food using radiant dry heat” (Larousse Gastronomique), such use is not really roasting at all, but baking, but that is not your concern. The Aga Roasting Oven does fulfil the requirement as it uses radiant heat as the primary means of transferring heat to the food being cooked and it is a dry environment, as steam is not contained (as with the covered roaster), but taken away by means of the oven venting system. Where this utensil will hopefully score for you is used for roasting without its lid. Then it will continue to roast using radiant heat. The 6mm flat base can also be used on the Aga hotplates and makes excellent conduct when you want to finish the dish by making gravy or a sauce in the base, both when making the roux and when you whisk in the liquids. The lid is also a ridged griddle and works on the Aga Boiling Plate to grill steaks, chops, cutlets and meatier cuts of fish such as tuna, marlin and swordfish. It is also good with chicken breasts for a chicken Caesar salad and for cooking liver, plus of course for griddling any vegetables: I use it for aubergine slices when making mousakka. Its final use of course is as an excellent casserole: brown the meat in batches in the large base, placing each batch in turn when well browned in the upturned lid. Then continue with the alliums and so on and then return the resting ingredients to the base, add the remaining items and pour over the stock, wine or beer etc. Its base will come quickly to simmering point before you give a couple of minutes on the Simmering Plate. Cover and transfer to the Simmering Oven to cook “low and slow” for 2-4 hours, depending on the cut of meat. The only drawback is that this utensil has to be used front to back in the ovens; it is not designed to hang from the oven runners like the normal Aga roasting tins. Nevertheless, I think it is perfect for what you have described. I hope that helps. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Assuring you of our best attention at all times. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I have one of these dishes and the base of the dish and the skillet lid is continually getting covered in a black/grey film that stains dish cloths, hands etc. We use the dish and lid on a gas AGA hob as well as the AGA plates. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks
        A. Dear Gavin The black-grey film to which you refer is aluminium oxide and this is produced when the exposed surface of the aluminium bases are allowed to come into contact with any strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which is the main active ingredient found in dishwasher detergents of all types. I imagine therefore that you have been washing this up in a dishwasher. We would recommend hand washing this product using handwashing detergent which will not cause this problem. To remove the current light deposits before changing to hand washing, use a little washing up liquid on the base and a little bit of elbow grease rubbing with a Scotchbrite green scouring pad or something similar. This will abrade the current aluminium oxide deposits and you will return to not having grey-streaked dishcloths etc. You can also use either of the AGA cleaning pastes if you have them and they will work even better. Once cleaned, rinse and dry off with a damp dishcloth and then place a drop of vegetable oil on the newly cleaned surfaces and wipe all over and then off using a piece of kitchen paper.

        Q. Can I use my cast aluminium griddle on the hot plate?
        A. Hi Ishbel, No we do not recommend the cast aluminium griddle is used on the hotplate. It is for oven use. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. In the instructions for preheating the griddle (alongside where it is being sold online) there is conflicting information. It says 'preheat on the floor of the roasting oven' and then further down 'don't preheat in the roasting oven'. Which is correct please?
        A. Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison
        A. Dear Alison I find that the timings are about the same as the oven heat does help but that only makes up for the fact that the base of the oven – and therefore the temperature of the new oven griddle – is a little less fierce than when using a pan on the hotter Boiling Plate. When you are baby-sitting several steaks at the same time, this scenario is most welcome as it is harder to over-cook a steak this way when you don’t mean to. My advice is always this, after purchasing the best steaks I can find, i.e. grass-fed for preference, as aged as possible, with a dark garnet colour and nice yellow fat with decent marbling etc.: Pat the steaks dry with lots of kitchen paper when you remove them from the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you are ready to cook them and have a platter warming in the Simmering Oven or Warming Oven ahead of time on which you can rest the steaks once cooked – the thicker they are the longer they benefit from resting: “Sear fast, rest slow” is the most important steak cooking mantra to always have at the forefront of your thinking, on any cooker. If you don’t fancy the hassle of making a sauce, I love the simplicity of a good slug of Dijon mustard stirred into a tub of full-fat crème fraîche to serve to hand with the steaks. Just a thought. Have fun with your new oven griddle. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison
        A. Dear Alison I find that the timings are about the same as the oven heat does help but that only makes up for the fact that the base of the oven – and therefore the temperature of the new oven griddle – is a little less fierce than when using a pan on the hotter Boiling Plate. When you are baby-sitting several steaks at the same time, this scenario is most welcome as it is harder to over-cook a steak this way when you don’t mean to. My advice is always this, after purchasing the best steaks I can find, i.e. grass-fed for preference, as aged as possible, with a dark garnet colour and nice yellow fat with decent marbling etc.: Pat the steaks dry with lots of kitchen paper when you remove them from the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you are ready to cook them and have a platter warming in the Simmering Oven or Warming Oven ahead of time on which you can rest the steaks once cooked – the thicker they are the longer they benefit from resting: “Sear fast, rest slow” is the most important steak cooking mantra to always have at the forefront of your thinking, on any cooker. If you don’t fancy the hassle of making a sauce, I love the simplicity of a good slug of Dijon mustard stirred into a tub of full-fat crème fraîche to serve to hand with the steaks. Just a thought. Have fun with your new oven griddle. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. In those rare occasions when gas AGA is switched off for a period of time (holidays etc), could I heat & use this griddle on my induction hob?
        A. Good morning Rachel Thank you for your question. The rectangular oven griddle is not suitable for use on an induction hob. Kind regards AGA Cookshop

        Q. I want to purchase a good quality roaster with a flat base which will lie flat on my Aga hot plate. Do Aga have a product? If not can you recommend? Any suggestions would be welcomed. John
        A. Dear John This is the baby to consider: http://www.agacookshop.co.uk/aga-cast-aluminium-rectangular-double-roaster.html It is primarily sold to my mind for covered roasting in a conventional oven, keeping the oven itself from getting too dirty from splashes. As roasting strictly speaking is defined “cooking of food using radiant dry heat” (Larousse Gastronomique), such use is not really roasting at all, but baking, but that is not your concern. The Aga Roasting Oven does fulfil the requirement as it uses radiant heat as the primary means of transferring heat to the food being cooked and it is a dry environment, as steam is not contained (as with the covered roaster), but taken away by means of the oven venting system. Where this utensil will hopefully score for you is used for roasting without its lid. Then it will continue to roast using radiant heat. The 6mm flat base can also be used on the Aga hotplates and makes excellent conduct when you want to finish the dish by making gravy or a sauce in the base, both when making the roux and when you whisk in the liquids. The lid is also a ridged griddle and works on the Aga Boiling Plate to grill steaks, chops, cutlets and meatier cuts of fish such as tuna, marlin and swordfish. It is also good with chicken breasts for a chicken Caesar salad and for cooking liver, plus of course for griddling any vegetables: I use it for aubergine slices when making mousakka. Its final use of course is as an excellent casserole: brown the meat in batches in the large base, placing each batch in turn when well browned in the upturned lid. Then continue with the alliums and so on and then return the resting ingredients to the base, add the remaining items and pour over the stock, wine or beer etc. Its base will come quickly to simmering point before you give a couple of minutes on the Simmering Plate. Cover and transfer to the Simmering Oven to cook “low and slow” for 2-4 hours, depending on the cut of meat. The only drawback is that this utensil has to be used front to back in the ovens; it is not designed to hang from the oven runners like the normal Aga roasting tins. Nevertheless, I think it is perfect for what you have described. I hope that helps. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Assuring you of our best attention at all times. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I have one of these dishes and the base of the dish and the skillet lid is continually getting covered in a black/grey film that stains dish cloths, hands etc. We use the dish and lid on a gas AGA hob as well as the AGA plates. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks
        A. Dear Gavin The black-grey film to which you refer is aluminium oxide and this is produced when the exposed surface of the aluminium bases are allowed to come into contact with any strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which is the main active ingredient found in dishwasher detergents of all types. I imagine therefore that you have been washing this up in a dishwasher. We would recommend hand washing this product using handwashing detergent which will not cause this problem. To remove the current light deposits before changing to hand washing, use a little washing up liquid on the base and a little bit of elbow grease rubbing with a Scotchbrite green scouring pad or something similar. This will abrade the current aluminium oxide deposits and you will return to not having grey-streaked dishcloths etc. You can also use either of the AGA cleaning pastes if you have them and they will work even better. Once cleaned, rinse and dry off with a damp dishcloth and then place a drop of vegetable oil on the newly cleaned surfaces and wipe all over and then off using a piece of kitchen paper.

    • Q. Can the enamelled roasting tin be used on the simmering plate, when making gravy after roasting a joint?

      A. Dear Susan Yes, you can use this on the floor of the AGA Roasting Oven, its base is finished nice and flat (and thick) for this exact reason. Here’s a neat trick to know about this product: you can make an assembled layered dish, such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, fish pie, et al. and freeze it. If you need to, you can cook it from frozen on the base of the Roasting Oven floor and it won’t crack. It will obviously take about 50% longer to cook than if it was freshly made or taken from the ‘fridge, but it is really useful to be able to do this on occasion. I hope that helps.

Cook from frozen on the floor of the Roasting Oven (on the floor grid on Total Control or AGA 60 models) and it will defrost and cook without cracking. Allow 50% longer cooking time.

      • Q. Hello I would like to make a Bundt cake but before I purchase one, please could you tell me if it's possible to make a successful Bundt cake in a 2 oven Aga with the cold plain shelf. Thanks for your help Kind regards Jane
        A. Dear Jane, Yes, you can do this. I have a Nordic Ware one made of aluminium (non-stick lined) and it works fine using the normal 2 oven AGA baking method: bake on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from the top. As with most baking in an AGA, turn the tin around about halftime to even up the browning. If you needed to give is a slightly more moderate bake (perhaps a very rich mixture, maybe a luxury chocolate one, where the conventional recipe suggests a 160°C (325°F), Gas Mark 3 setting in a conventional cooker, then you can instead bake it with it sitting in a full-size AGA roasting tin hanging on the lowest set of runners, again with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners. Ideally use one of the original plain aluminium (or hard anodised ones if not) rather than one of the current enamelled steel roasting tins for this, as aluminium has better thermal properties. The reason this gives a more temperate bake is that the tapered sides of the roasting tin afford the Bundt tin extra protection from the radiant heat from the sides of the oven. This scenario is halfway to the conditions found in the AGA Cake Baker. If your chosen Bundt tin fits in the AGA Cake Baker (the carrier it contains three cake tins; the largest is 8-inch (20cm), to give you a rough guide to what it will accommodate), then you can also bake a Bundt tin in this. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        A. Dear Susan Yes, you can use this on the floor of the AGA Roasting Oven, its base is finished nice and flat (and thick) for this exact reason. Here’s a neat trick to know about this product: you can make an assembled layered dish, such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, fish pie, et al. and freeze it. If you need to, you can cook it from frozen on the base of the Roasting Oven floor and it won’t crack. It will obviously take about 50% longer to cook than if it was freshly made or taken from the ‘fridge, but it is really useful to be able to do this on occasion. I hope that helps.

        Q. When using the cake baker how do you convert cooking times? Do all cakes only take 45-55 mins or do fruit cakes take longer than other cakes? Would you use cake baker for all types of cake or only long slow cooking cakes? Sheila
        A. Dear Sheila The AGA Cake Baker is designed for large, deep cakes that require 45 minutes’ or longer baking at a moderate temperature. A semi-rich fruit cake in the smallest tin can take as little as 45 minutes but for most cakes of the larger two sizes take anywhere from an hour to 1½ hours. Think of cakes such as cherry cake, most fruit cakes including Dundee cake, Madeira and seed cake et al. Very rich fruit cakes such as wedding cakes and Christmas cake fare better cooked for the whole time from raw in the Simmering Oven – see the AGA Book. Pre-heat the empty ACB base and lid on the floor of the oven whilst you line the tin and make the cake. The lid needs to be hot as otherwise in the early stage of baking steam would otherwise condense on the lid and drops of water would drip down and mark the top of the cake. A big advantage of the ACB is that you can still cook high temperature foods at the same time, e.g. frying on the floor of the Roasting Oven with the ACB at the rear of the oven and/or bake scones or puff pastry at the top of the oven, even over the ACB. If you want to make the ACB even more moderate than its normal setting, set it on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven: by cutting of direct conducted base heat to the ACB you obtain an even mellower baking environment; I use this when baking an enriched cake where there is a risk of scorching an ingredient, e.g. a flourless chocolate chiffon cake. You can also use the ACB to bake two 1 lb loaf tins of something like a tea loaf. Place the ACB on a grid shelf with its lid to pre-heat. Place one tin in the carrier and cook in the ACB towards the rear of the oven. Place the second tin on the grid shelf in front of the ACB and protect with a “N” tent of double-folded aluminium foil. The ACB plus the tent together will afford the second loaf tin sufficient protection. Remember that for the following cakes you should not be using the ACB: a Victoria sandwich in two tins or one deeper tin, traybakes, Swiss roll, brownies and blondies and for all sponges. Here you bake low down in the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from above. Turn the tin(s) at half-time. If the mixture is very deep and will take longer than 25-30 minutes to cook through, replace the now hot plain shelf with a fresh cold one (or improvise with a full-size hard anodised AGA baking tray or even a full-size AGA roasting tin. For a full explanation of all the different AGA baking techniques for a two-oven AGA, see the baking chapter in my, “Complete Book of AGA Know-How”, Absolute Press, available from your AGA shop or Distributor or online from www.agacookshop.co.uk .

Then the other half of the shelf can still be in use. Many thanks.

Bake loaves of bread in tins on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven. Bake for around 25-30 minutes, turning the tins around halfway through cooking. I hope that helps.

      • Q. Hello I would like to make a Bundt cake but before I purchase one, please could you tell me if it's possible to make a successful Bundt cake in a 2 oven Aga with the cold plain shelf. Thanks for your help Kind regards Jane
        A. Dear Jane, Yes, you can do this. I have a Nordic Ware one made of aluminium (non-stick lined) and it works fine using the normal 2 oven AGA baking method: bake on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from the top. As with most baking in an AGA, turn the tin around about halftime to even up the browning. If you needed to give is a slightly more moderate bake (perhaps a very rich mixture, maybe a luxury chocolate one, where the conventional recipe suggests a 160°C (325°F), Gas Mark 3 setting in a conventional cooker, then you can instead bake it with it sitting in a full-size AGA roasting tin hanging on the lowest set of runners, again with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners. Ideally use one of the original plain aluminium (or hard anodised ones if not) rather than one of the current enamelled steel roasting tins for this, as aluminium has better thermal properties. The reason this gives a more temperate bake is that the tapered sides of the roasting tin afford the Bundt tin extra protection from the radiant heat from the sides of the oven. This scenario is halfway to the conditions found in the AGA Cake Baker. If your chosen Bundt tin fits in the AGA Cake Baker (the carrier it contains three cake tins; the largest is 8-inch (20cm), to give you a rough guide to what it will accommodate), then you can also bake a Bundt tin in this. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. I purchased a Baker’s Paddle about 2 years ago. I have tried on numerous occasions to use the paddle to transfer my freshly made pizza to the floor of the oven but always with disastrous effect. I find the pizza sticks and will not slide off the paddle. I have tried coating the paddle with semolina and also with flour on other occasions but neither seem to help. I persuaded my husband that I needed this rather costly item and have been left well and truly with egg on my face!! The paddle is currently living peacefully in the pantry never to be used again unless I can find a solution to this sticky problem. Please can you help? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Tina Using semolina or flour as a dry lubricant or release agent is absolutely the route to go. As this isn’t working my first thought is that your pizza dough is erring on the wet side. The usual way describe the correct texture for a yeast dough is “silky”: I would suggest you work in a little more strong white bread flour next time and you should be good to go, again using some semolina, polenta or flour. My advice would be to have a dummy run when your husband isn’t around before you show off. We are on the third version of AGA pizza baker’s paddle and all have sold well over the last 10 years or so with great feedback, so I am sure if you persevere with a slightly dryer dough all will be well. A final thought: I also use mine to manoeuvre a ceramic flan dish from the back of the floor of the oven to the front, before picking it up with an AGA gauntlet, so it does have other uses. Please do let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

I use Bake-o-Glide on the Simmering Plate, and fresh free-range eggs, but every time they always stick. I really cannot see what , if anything I am doing wrong. Can you please advise me if possible. Many thanks Linda
        A. Dear Linda I am sorry to hear you have been having problems. Lightly oil the whole surface of both sides of the Bake-O-Glide the first time you use it, as recommended in the instructions. Once you have given the Bake-O-Glide this preliminary seasoning you should never need to do this again, even when washed up by hand or machine. This should solve your problem – let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. I'm looking for something to put on top of my Rayburn hot plates when cooking welsh cakes & similar. I know I can cook them direct but would like something that means I don't have to scrape the surface to clean & means no need to use oil, should I use these or the Aga bake o glide set? or are they the same just a different shape? thanks
        A. Dear Rosemary Speaking as someone who is half Welsh, I personally much prefer the effect obtained by cooking Welsh cakes directly on the coolest end of the Rayburn hotplate. Lightly oil with a thick pad of kitchen paper using a vegetable oil or a little lard before and in between each batch. Nevertheless you have asked a good question and there is a product that would probably suit you very well. It is called Bake-O-Glide and there is a Rayburn Cook Set which contains two pieces: one that is cut in the corners so that it fits your Rayburn meat tin and also a rectangle that fits the cold plain shelf, used mainly for cooking biscuits and scones and for drying out meringues and Pavlovas in the Lower Oven. This latter piece may also be used on the cool end of the Rayburn hotplate for cooking Welsh cakes and also drop scones and crêpes. Bake-O-Glide is sold by AGA and Rayburn stockists and also online from www.agacookshop.co.uk . I hope that helps. Best wishes

      A. Dear Jon You need to use a long-handled AGA wire brush and some elbow grease. It isn’t as hard as it sounds, but you do need this tool to do the job. Take care only to work on the hotplate itself, don’t allow the wire brush to get near to the black enamelled top plate or the outer insulating ring of cast-iron, if your AGA is a traditional model.

      • Q. I purchased a Baker’s Paddle about 2 years ago. I have tried on numerous occasions to use the paddle to transfer my freshly made pizza to the floor of the oven but always with disastrous effect. I find the pizza sticks and will not slide off the paddle. I have tried coating the paddle with semolina and also with flour on other occasions but neither seem to help. I persuaded my husband that I needed this rather costly item and have been left well and truly with egg on my face!! The paddle is currently living peacefully in the pantry never to be used again unless I can find a solution to this sticky problem. Please can you help? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Tina Using semolina or flour as a dry lubricant or release agent is absolutely the route to go. As this isn’t working my first thought is that your pizza dough is erring on the wet side. The usual way describe the correct texture for a yeast dough is “silky”: I would suggest you work in a little more strong white bread flour next time and you should be good to go, again using some semolina, polenta or flour. My advice would be to have a dummy run when your husband isn’t around before you show off. We are on the third version of AGA pizza baker’s paddle and all have sold well over the last 10 years or so with great feedback, so I am sure if you persevere with a slightly dryer dough all will be well. A final thought: I also use mine to manoeuvre a ceramic flan dish from the back of the floor of the oven to the front, before picking it up with an AGA gauntlet, so it does have other uses. Please do let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      Q. When using the cake baker how do you convert cooking times? Do all cakes only take 45-55 mins or do fruit cakes take longer than other cakes? Would you use cake baker for all types of cake or only long slow cooking cakes? Sheila
      A. Dear Sheila The AGA Cake Baker is designed for large, deep cakes that require 45 minutes’ or longer baking at a moderate temperature. A semi-rich fruit cake in the smallest tin can take as little as 45 minutes but for most cakes of the larger two sizes take anywhere from an hour to 1½ hours. Think of cakes such as cherry cake, most fruit cakes including Dundee cake, Madeira and seed cake et al. Very rich fruit cakes such as wedding cakes and Christmas cake fare better cooked for the whole time from raw in the Simmering Oven – see the AGA Book. Pre-heat the empty ACB base and lid on the floor of the oven whilst you line the tin and make the cake. The lid needs to be hot as otherwise in the early stage of baking steam would otherwise condense on the lid and drops of water would drip down and mark the top of the cake. A big advantage of the ACB is that you can still cook high temperature foods at the same time, e.g. frying on the floor of the Roasting Oven with the ACB at the rear of the oven and/or bake scones or puff pastry at the top of the oven, even over the ACB. If you want to make the ACB even more moderate than its normal setting, set it on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven: by cutting of direct conducted base heat to the ACB you obtain an even mellower baking environment; I use this when baking an enriched cake where there is a risk of scorching an ingredient, e.g. a flourless chocolate chiffon cake. You can also use the ACB to bake two 1 lb loaf tins of something like a tea loaf. Place the ACB on a grid shelf with its lid to pre-heat. Place one tin in the carrier and cook in the ACB towards the rear of the oven. Place the second tin on the grid shelf in front of the ACB and protect with a “N” tent of double-folded aluminium foil. The ACB plus the tent together will afford the second loaf tin sufficient protection. Remember that for the following cakes you should not be using the ACB: a Victoria sandwich in two tins or one deeper tin, traybakes, Swiss roll, brownies and blondies and for all sponges. Here you bake low down in the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf on the second set of runners from above. Turn the tin(s) at half-time. If the mixture is very deep and will take longer than 25-30 minutes to cook through, replace the now hot plain shelf with a fresh cold one (or improvise with a full-size hard anodised AGA baking tray or even a full-size AGA roasting tin. For a full explanation of all the different AGA baking techniques for a two-oven AGA, see the baking chapter in my, “Complete Book of AGA Know-How”, Absolute Press, available from your AGA shop or Distributor or online from www.agacookshop.co.uk . I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. Please can you freeze fish pie.thank you
        A. Dear Kathleen Provided you use fresh fish and you allow the white sauce to cool until it is stone cold before you pour it over the fish in the dish, you can cover with cling film and freeze. Mashed potato does not respond well to freezing, so I would suggest you steam the potatoes using the AGA Simmering Oven method when you want to finish the recipe off. Mash the potatoes – preferably using a potato ricer – and spread over the defrosted sauce topped fish. You will preserve the best texture from the frozen fish if you defrost the fish in its sauce overnight in the refrigerator. If using frozen prawns and scallops I would keep these in the freezer when originally making the fish pie and defrost these overnight and just poke them into the defrosted sauce, along with the peas, which can be added frozen; as they are so small, they will defrost and cook in situ when you bake the pie. If you are wondering about freezing this recipe once it is made and baked all at the same time, the answer, again, is yes, provided the fish used wasn’t previously frozen. It would then be safe to do this, but I wouldn’t recommend doing so, as the texture of the frozen mashed potato topping doesn’t make for good eating when it is defrosted and reheated. A far better plan, to my mind, would be to cool any leftovers as quickly as possible and then store this, covered in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. To reheat, place in a fresh shallow baking dish, lightly greased, and bake on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf above on the second set of runners. Re-heat in this way for about 20 minutes or so, until piping hot right through. If your AGA has a Baking Oven, you could use the centre of the Baking Oven instead. I hope that helps.

If using frozen prawns and scallops I would keep these in the freezer when originally making the fish pie and defrost these overnight and just poke them into the defrosted sauce, along with the peas, which can be added frozen; as they are so small, they will defrost and cook in situ when you bake the pie. If you are wondering about freezing this recipe once it is made and baked all at the same time, the answer, again, is yes, provided the fish used wasn’t previously frozen. It would then be safe to do this, but I wouldn’t recommend doing so, as the texture of the frozen mashed potato topping doesn’t make for good eating when it is defrosted and reheated. A far better plan, to my mind, would be to cool any leftovers as quickly as possible and then store this, covered in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours. To reheat, place in a fresh shallow baking dish, lightly greased, and bake on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven with a cold plain shelf above on the second set of runners. Re-heat in this way for about 20 minutes or so, until piping hot right through. If your AGA has a Baking Oven, you could use the centre of the Baking Oven instead. I hope that helps.

      • Q. I always used to make great meringues and Pavlovas in my AGA - but recently they don't work anymore and I can't work out why.... I'm not doing anything differently to my knowledge - but they WILL NOT RISE! I end up with flat discs - totally unappetising! Can you help, please....?
        A. Dear Collette I am sorry to hear of your meringue angst! Using egg whites that are older rather than as fresh as possible works best for all types of meringue (obviously, still within a sensible use by date). Only ever use a glass, china or metal bowl and ensure that both it and the whisk(s) that you are using are scrupulously clean and absolutely grease free. If in any doubt, wash up by hand with hot soapy water and then rinse well with hot and then cold water, leave to drain and take a fresh tea towel so you know that that is laundry clean. I often save make meringues and Pavlovas for the moment when I am unloading the dishwasher and I therefore know that the stainless steel bowl and the balloon whisk from my KitchenAid stand mixer is squeaky clean. Plastic mixing bowls are the worst, once they have had fat of any kind in it you will never remove very trace. So a Kenwood chef with a plastic bowl (very popular in the 1980’s) is a recipe for disaster. Carefully separate the whites, ensuring that absolutely no yolk contaminates them (they would introduce the dreaded grease). I favour 2 oz (55g) of caster sugar per egg white, and would always use cane sugar (Tate3 & Lyle) in preference to home grown beet sugar (such as Silver Spoon). Whisk the egg whites until like clouds then, with the mixer running at full speed, add the sugar slowly, a teaspoon at a time. Adding the sugar too early and to quickly are the main reasons for getting a poor volume. When it is all incorporated, turn off the machine and take a small amount of the mixture between two clean fingers and rub. If it feels at all gritty, whisk for longer, stopping and testing after each minute. The volume of air you manage to whisk into the whites is what will make the mixture rise: as they are slowly heated up, all those small bubbles swell just like balloons deflate if blown up in a warm room and then hung in a cool room, just the process is the other way around. Dry low down on a grid shelf on the floor of your coolest oven, so the Warming Oven if you have one or on a grid shelf on the floor of the Simmering Oven. If you have a manually controlled oven vent fan, make sure it is turned on for the period you are drying them out – usually somewhere between 1½ - 2½ hours. I hope that helps. Let me know how you get on. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. I'm looking for something to put on top of my Rayburn hot plates when cooking welsh cakes & similar. I know I can cook them direct but would like something that means I don't have to scrape the surface to clean & means no need to use oil, should I use these or the Aga bake o glide set? or are they the same just a different shape? thanks
        A. Dear Rosemary Speaking as someone who is half Welsh, I personally much prefer the effect obtained by cooking Welsh cakes directly on the coolest end of the Rayburn hotplate. Lightly oil with a thick pad of kitchen paper using a vegetable oil or a little lard before and in between each batch. Nevertheless you have asked a good question and there is a product that would probably suit you very well. It is called Bake-O-Glide and there is a Rayburn Cook Set which contains two pieces: one that is cut in the corners so that it fits your Rayburn meat tin and also a rectangle that fits the cold plain shelf, used mainly for cooking biscuits and scones and for drying out meringues and Pavlovas in the Lower Oven. This latter piece may also be used on the cool end of the Rayburn hotplate for cooking Welsh cakes and also drop scones and crêpes. Bake-O-Glide is sold by AGA and Rayburn stockists and also online from www.agacookshop.co.uk . I hope that helps. Best wishes

        Q. I want to purchase a good quality roaster with a flat base which will lie flat on my Aga hot plate. Do Aga have a product? If not can you recommend? Any suggestions would be welcomed. John
        A. Dear John This is the baby to consider: http://www.agacookshop.co.uk/aga-cast-aluminium-rectangular-double-roaster.html It is primarily sold to my mind for covered roasting in a conventional oven, keeping the oven itself from getting too dirty from splashes. As roasting strictly speaking is defined “cooking of food using radiant dry heat” (Larousse Gastronomique), such use is not really roasting at all, but baking, but that is not your concern. The Aga Roasting Oven does fulfil the requirement as it uses radiant heat as the primary means of transferring heat to the food being cooked and it is a dry environment, as steam is not contained (as with the covered roaster), but taken away by means of the oven venting system. Where this utensil will hopefully score for you is used for roasting without its lid. Then it will continue to roast using radiant heat. The 6mm flat base can also be used on the Aga hotplates and makes excellent conduct when you want to finish the dish by making gravy or a sauce in the base, both when making the roux and when you whisk in the liquids. The lid is also a ridged griddle and works on the Aga Boiling Plate to grill steaks, chops, cutlets and meatier cuts of fish such as tuna, marlin and swordfish. It is also good with chicken breasts for a chicken Caesar salad and for cooking liver, plus of course for griddling any vegetables: I use it for aubergine slices when making mousakka. Its final use of course is as an excellent casserole: brown the meat in batches in the large base, placing each batch in turn when well browned in the upturned lid. Then continue with the alliums and so on and then return the resting ingredients to the base, add the remaining items and pour over the stock, wine or beer etc. Its base will come quickly to simmering point before you give a couple of minutes on the Simmering Plate. Cover and transfer to the Simmering Oven to cook “low and slow” for 2-4 hours, depending on the cut of meat. The only drawback is that this utensil has to be used front to back in the ovens; it is not designed to hang from the oven runners like the normal Aga roasting tins. Nevertheless, I think it is perfect for what you have described. I hope that helps. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us again. Assuring you of our best attention at all times. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

      • Q. I purchased a Baker’s Paddle about 2 years ago. I have tried on numerous occasions to use the paddle to transfer my freshly made pizza to the floor of the oven but always with disastrous effect. I find the pizza sticks and will not slide off the paddle. I have tried coating the paddle with semolina and also with flour on other occasions but neither seem to help. I persuaded my husband that I needed this rather costly item and have been left well and truly with egg on my face!! The paddle is currently living peacefully in the pantry never to be used again unless I can find a solution to this sticky problem. Please can you help? Many thanks.
        A. Dear Tina Using semolina or flour as a dry lubricant or release agent is absolutely the route to go. As this isn’t working my first thought is that your pizza dough is erring on the wet side. The usual way describe the correct texture for a yeast dough is “silky”: I would suggest you work in a little more strong white bread flour next time and you should be good to go, again using some semolina, polenta or flour. My advice would be to have a dummy run when your husband isn’t around before you show off. We are on the third version of AGA pizza baker’s paddle and all have sold well over the last 10 years or so with great feedback, so I am sure if you persevere with a slightly dryer dough all will be well. A final thought: I also use mine to manoeuvre a ceramic flan dish from the back of the floor of the oven to the front, before picking it up with an AGA gauntlet, so it does have other uses. Please do let me know how you get on. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor

        Q. I have one of these dishes and the base of the dish and the skillet lid is continually getting covered in a black/grey film that stains dish cloths, hands etc. We use the dish and lid on a gas AGA hob as well as the AGA plates. Do you know what is causing this? Thanks
        A. Dear Gavin The black-grey film to which you refer is aluminium oxide and this is produced when the exposed surface of the aluminium bases are allowed to come into contact with any strong alkali, such as sodium hydroxide (caustic soda), which is the main active ingredient found in dishwasher detergents of all types. I imagine therefore that you have been washing this up in a dishwasher. We would recommend hand washing this product using handwashing detergent which will not cause this problem. To remove the current light deposits before changing to hand washing, use a little washing up liquid on the base and a little bit of elbow grease rubbing with a Scotchbrite green scouring pad or something similar. This will abrade the current aluminium oxide deposits and you will return to not having grey-streaked dishcloths etc. You can also use either of the AGA cleaning pastes if you have them and they will work even better. Once cleaned, rinse and dry off with a damp dishcloth and then place a drop of vegetable oil on the newly cleaned surfaces and wipe all over and then off using a piece of kitchen paper.

        A. Dear Jon, Thank you for your question. The loaf pans are not dishwasher safe. Best wishes, AGA Cookshop.
        Q. I'm having problems with baking bread. In the roasting oven on the bottom grid, the top of the bread starts to burn after 15 mins if I don't put the cold shelf in. Is this Ok or is the oven too hot ?
        A. Dear Mike If you are baking the bread with the grid shelf on the bottom set of runners, this would indeed give you the problem you describe. Bake loaves of bread in tins on a grid shelf on the floor of the Roasting Oven. Bake for around 25-30 minutes, turning the tins around halfway through cooking. I hope that helps.

      • Q. can you tell me if this sits on the shelf rungs or just placed on the base of the aga oven?
        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. This griddle is not designed to fit onto the runners of the AGA. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Can this be used with the aga total control
        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. Yes, the griddle can be used in the Total Control. If you would like to use this on the floor of the oven, we recommend that it is placed onto a grid shelf at the bottom of the oven. Kind regards AGA Cookshop

        Q. Can this be used on the hot plate?
        A. Good afternoon Thank you for your query. We do not recommend that the oven griddle is used on the hotplate. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. Will there be a griddle for Rayburns, to be used in the same way i.e. oven floor?

        Q. Can I use my cast aluminium griddle on the hot plate?
        A. Hi Ishbel, No we do not recommend the cast aluminium griddle is used on the hotplate. It is for oven use. Kind regards AGA Cookshop
        Q. In the instructions for preheating the griddle (alongside where it is being sold online) there is conflicting information. It says 'preheat on the floor of the roasting oven' and then further down 'don't preheat in the roasting oven'. Which is correct please?
        A. Dear Sharon I have checked with my colleagues at AGA CookShop, as sometimes there are considerations to be taken into account before I pen my answer… It is a mistake, but one they will quickly address. Thank you for drawing it to our attention. To work best, this product does need to be pre-heated for up to five minutes on the floor of the Roasting Oven. If you AGA is a Total Control or City 60 (now renamed as the AGA 60, with no change to this cooker’s specification), then the supplied floor grid needs to be used on the floor, between the griddle and the floor. The reason for this on these models with on-off ovens, there is an element embedded in the base of this oven and not to use the supplied floor grid would risk over-heating the griddle. The floor grid is a special accessory only necessary with the Total Control and AGA 60 models. The cooking results with the griddle are comparable on all AGA cookers, provided this caveat is observed. Note that it is not recommended to pre-heat the griddle for longer than five minutes; similarly, it should not be left in the oven for prolonged periods unused, as damage to the non-stick lining could be caused. I hope that helps. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. I plan to cook a mixture of fillet and sirloin steaks for friends using a recently acquired oven griddle. I believe this should go on the floor of my Aga (2-oven gas fired model). I usually dry-fry steaks in a pan on the boiling plate, but can only do up to 3 steaks this way, hence the griddle. Can I just use the griddle in the same way as I would use a frying pan? I guess the total cooking time will be less due to heat from the oven. Any advice would be really welcome! Thanks, Alison
        A. Dear Alison I find that the timings are about the same as the oven heat does help but that only makes up for the fact that the base of the oven – and therefore the temperature of the new oven griddle – is a little less fierce than when using a pan on the hotter Boiling Plate. When you are baby-sitting several steaks at the same time, this scenario is most welcome as it is harder to over-cook a steak this way when you don’t mean to. My advice is always this, after purchasing the best steaks I can find, i.e. grass-fed for preference, as aged as possible, with a dark garnet colour and nice yellow fat with decent marbling etc.: Pat the steaks dry with lots of kitchen paper when you remove them from the refrigerator and bring them to room temperature before you are ready to cook them and have a platter warming in the Simmering Oven or Warming Oven ahead of time on which you can rest the steaks once cooked – the thicker they are the longer they benefit from resting: “Sear fast, rest slow” is the most important steak cooking mantra to always have at the forefront of your thinking, on any cooker. If you don’t fancy the hassle of making a sauce, I love the simplicity of a good slug of Dijon mustard stirred into a tub of full-fat crème fraîche to serve to hand with the steaks. Just a thought. Have fun with your new oven griddle. Best wishes Richard Maggs The AGA Cookery Doctor
        Q. In those rare occasions when gas AGA is switched off for a period of time (holidays etc), could I heat & use this griddle on my induction hob?

      • Q. Can the enamelled roasting tin be used on the simmering plate, when making gravy after roasting a joint? I've just acquired mine with a new Aga, but the anodised (Aga brand) roasting tin I used on my old Aga quickly buckled and became convex, so never sat flat on the simmering plate. I'd rather the new one didn't do the same! I've always made gravy in the tin used for roasting and wouldn't want to do it any other way.
        A. Good morning Thank you for your query. Our roasting tins are not designed for use on the hot plates. However our stainless steel saucepots are the perfect solution as they make contact with the hotplate and can be taken straight to the table to serve from the cooker. Please see below link to our saucepots: http://www.agacookshop.co.uk/cookware/new-aga-stainless-steel/stainless-steel-sauce-pots.html Kind regards AGA Cookshop

        Q. I have a Portmeirion baking dish. Can I place it on the floor of the roasting oven?
        A. Dear Susan Yes, you can use this on the floor of the AGA Roasting Oven, its base is finished nice and flat (and thick) for this exact reason. Here’s a neat trick to know about this product: you can make an assembled layered dish, such as shepherd’s pie, lasagne, fish pie, et al. and freeze it. If you need to, you can cook it from frozen on the base of the Roasting Oven floor and it won’t crack. It will obviously take about 50% longer to cook than if it was freshly made or taken from the ‘fridge, but it is really useful to be able to do this on occasion. I hope that helps.
