Aga, the iconic stored-heat stove and cooker invented in 1929 by the Nobel Prize-winning Swedish physicist Gustaf Dalén, is now entering the 21st century with a new model that heats up in no time and can be controlled by your iPhone. Enter the new AGA Total Control, the next generation AGA cooker featuring a touchscreen panel with which you can easily switch it on and off.

Interestingly, the new AGA Total Control cooker enjoys the same cast-iron looks that made the classic AGA a true British icon. The change lies inside. One you open the door, you have the access to the touchscreen panel. You can program your AGA cooker to be on or off to your liking. Each hotplate and oven operates independently.

You can use it like a classic AGA heat-storage cooker with all ovens and hotplates or with a single hotplate or oven. The new model heats up within 8 minutes, so you don’t have to wait for hours to do your cooking, as was the case with the earlier cast-iron cooker.

William McGrath, chief executive of Aga Rangemaster Group, said…

Aga has going since 1922, but the current model has been pretty much unchanged since it first went on sale in Britain in 1935. We think this innovation is as radical as anything we have done since 1935.

With the new AGA Total Control, you get all the benefits of cast-iron cooking combined with state-of-the-art technology to suit your 21st century lifestyle. The AGA Total Control costs £9,595 (about $15,500).
