Notes

  • All models were as new factory models laboratory tested.
  • Each test was conducted over periods in excess of 48 hours to ensure accuracy.
  • Each test excluded any cooking with all doors and lids remaining closed throughout duration.
  • All cookers were allowed to reach temperature and stabilise for several hours before testing began (the energy required to initially heat each cooker is excluded from the running costs).
  • The Everhot tested was run at factory recommended settings. The AGA models do not have full temperature control but both the Aga and Everhot models can be turned down to reduce the running costs if required.
  • All testing was carried out in an independent test laboratory.
