If you grew up in the 70s, it was tempting to imagine the home of the future would be decidedly space age, with robots running everything and us sitting back doing very little. This, of course, isn’t quite how things turned out – but things are getting decidedly more techie in the kitchen.
AGA has taken things a step further by launching the AGA iTotal Control cooker. Owners of this innovative new range cooker will be able to control it wherever they are, using a mobile phone, smartphone, PC, laptop, iPad or tablet. The AGA iTotal Control cooker’s three ovens (roasting, baking and simmering) are remotely operated, so you can ensure the cooker is warm and supper will be cooked at exactly the time you need it – wherever you are in the world. Essentially, you can sync your AGA at the touch of a button.
Those AGA iTotal Control owners who don`t have a smartphone, tablet or laptop can still take advantage of this technical revolution – simply by sending a text message to the AGA. The AGA can also be controlled via the web, so even if you have no phone signal you can use a wireless network to ensure the cooker is doing exactly what you want it to.
AGA is using Orange technology to run the communications element of iTotal Control. Marc Overton, VP of Wholesale and M2M for Orange, said: `We are very proud to be working with such an iconic British brand and starting a conversation between people and theirovens all over the world.`
AGA iTotal Control will be available from June 1st and costs £10,090.
