WHAT IS A HEAT-STORAGE COOKER?

Beneath the classic looks of every AGA is a heart of cast iron: the entire cooker is an outstandingly efficient energy store, steadily transferring the heat from its core into its ovens and hotplates. 

An AGA is always ready to cook instantly and there are no switches and dials because the AGA looks after itself. Thermostatic control maintains consistent temperatures while high levels of insulation within the outer casing and beneath the hotplate covers ensure that every AGA uses fuel economically. The AGA releases a unique source of gentle, friendly warmth into your kitchen.

Within the ovens, heat comes from all surfaces simultaneously, ensuring a kinder, gentler cooking process without the fierce direct heat found in conventional cookers. Another benefit of this is that this cooking process preserves food's moisture, flavour and, most importantly, goodness. Ask any AGA owner and they'll tell you that their food really does taste better and that they get brilliant results, every time. Watch the video below. 

10 REASONS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH AN AGA COOKER

1. AN AGA REALLY CAN DO IT ALLAga _does _it _all

From quick stir-fries through to elaborate soufflés, the AGA excels at every style of cooking. AGA cakes are lighter, roast are more succulent, chips crunchier, Yorkshire puddings rise more, steaks are juicer and pizzas are always crisp to perfection. There is nothing the AGA cannot do and everything it does it does it better. It's even a whizz at ready meals for those more hectic days.Dotted _line

Aga _part _of _family2. YOUR AGA WILL BECOME PART OF THE FAMILY

No one can resist an AGA – they’re drawn to its gentle warmth and, as soon as they enter the kitchen, they feel the need to lean on it. Sometimes they’ll even jostle for the best spot. AGA owners consistently tell us their cooker is part of the family and they couldn’t imagine life without it. It’s impossible to think of any other household object that inspires this level of devotion. Dotted _line

3. IT’S A DESIGN CLASSICAga _design _classic

The AGA was voted in a BBC survey one of the top three design icons of the 20th century.Dotted _line

Aga _13_colours4. THERE’S AN AGA COLOUR TO SUIT EVERY KITCHEN

There are 14 colours to choose from in the AGA palette, so you’re sure to find one perfect for your kitchen. From the classic Cream, through to sleek Pewter and the latest colour, Aqua, there’s something right for your space, whether you have a traditional or contemporary kitchen.Dotted _line

5. BIG IS BEAUTIFUL WITH THE HUGE OVENS IN THE AGAAga _huge _ovens

The AGA is known for its large ovens. The roasting oven is big enough, in fact, to fit a 13kg (28lb) bird – perfect for Sunday lunch for a crowd and it definitely eases the strain over Christmas. Interestingly, though, these huge ovens cook in such a way that flavours don’t merge.

Aga _finer _food6. GENTLE-HEAT COOKING MEANS FINER FOOD

The AGA treats food differently. It doesn’t blast food with drying direct heat. Instead, radiant heat from the cast iron ovens gently cooks food, locking in flavour, moisture and goodness.

Dotted _line

7. A MODEL TO SUIT EVERY LIFESTYLEAga _every _model

Whether you choose a 2-oven, 3-oven, 4-oven or 5-oven AGA you’re guaranteed to love it. Whatever the size of your kitchen, there’s definitely an AGA for you. You can even choose one that comes with a Freestanding or Integrated Module – essentially a conventional oven with integral grill and hob, all wrapped up in a cast iron package. It can be attached to the AGA or left freestanding in another part of the kitchen.Dotted _line

Aga _british8. IT’S MADE BY SKILLED CRAFTSMEN IN BRITAIN

The AGA is made in Shropshire at the company’s foundry in Coalbrookdale, a World Heritage site and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution. How reassuring – at a time of decline in the UK’s manufacturing industry – that the iconic AGA is still made here, using skills passed down from one generation of craftsmen to the next.Dotted _line

9. 70% IS MADE FROM RECYCLED MATERIALSAga _recycled

Unlike other types of cooker, every AGA is almost completely recyclable. Since the very first model was made 90 years ago, 70% of each AGA has been made from used material. Car gearboxes, guttering, old machinery, cast iron cookers, door fittings, drain covers, lamp-posts and much more can all be found in the world’s most famous cooker. As green credentials go, that’s pretty impressive.Dotted _line

Aga _green _issues10. GREEN ISSUES ARE TOP OF OUR AGENDA

The AGA is unlike any other household appliance. Because of its renowned longevity (there are thousands of AGA cookers across the UK still working perfectly after 50 years or more of sterling service) you’ll never, for example, find an AGA cooker on a landfill site. And retired AGA cookers are recyclable.

Choice of fuel is becoming increasingly important. That’s why models in the AGA collection are available with several fuel options. These include propane or natural gas, kerosene heating oil, and electricity, which has in recent years led the way as a cleaner, lower-cost energy source. And the introduction of the 13-amp electric AGA, off-peak 30-amp electric AGA, and more recently AGA Total Control, mean ease of installation and lower maintenance costs. And if you have an electric AGA you can even use it in conjunction with micro-generation projects.

New vs Reconditioned

AGA cookers are designed to last for many years, decades in fact, and they are often handed down from one generation to another. This is one of the reasons why AGA heat storage cookers represent such good value for money, they will literally last a life time if they are properly looked after. It is because of this longevity and the superior craftsmanship that goes in to creating each AGA cooker that some people consider buying a used AGA instead of a new one.

However, buying a used, refurbished AGA or reconditioned AGA is full of pitfalls. For example, the product you are buying may already be well over 30 years old and made up of bits from different AGA cookers. Many also started life to run on one fuel type eg. oil but have been converted by someone along the way to work on a completely different fuel. It's rather like buying a 30 year old diesel car that started life as a petrol model. Read more.
