Nineteen Twenties: The birth of the AGA Range Cooker 

Story Of Kitchen Classic Kitchen Classic (2) Copy _110x 143It was in 1922 that blind Nobel Prize-winning physicist Dr Gustaf Dalén invented the world's first heat-storage cooker.

Confined to his home after a failed experiment cost him his sight, Dalén was inspired to create a better, more efficient cooker for his wife, Elma, who constantly had to tend to their old-fashioned range.

Dalén created a cast-iron cooker capable of every kind of cooking simultaneously, through its two large hotplates and two ovens. The now famous AGA was born and by 1929 manufacturing was under way at the AGA Heat Ltd factory in Smethwick.

Dalén was awarded the Nobel Prize for his work in developing automated lighthouses, a development which saved countless lives.
