10 reasons to fall in love
There are so many reasons why hundreds of thousands of devotees love our range of AGA products and couldn't imagine life without them. Below are just a few, but for a full experience why not visit your dedicated AGA shop, request a brochure or visit one of our demonstrations to see our products first hand and experience the difference they could make to your home.
1. An AGA really can do it all
From quick stir-fries through to elaborate soufflés, the AGA excels at every style of cooking. AGA cakes are lighter, roasts 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.
2. 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.
3. It’s a design classic
The AGA was voted in a BBC survey one of the top three design icons of the 20th century.
4. There’s an AGA colour to suit every kitchen
There are up to 15 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.
5. Big is beautiful with the huge ovens in the AGA
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.
6. 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.
7. A model to suit every lifestyle
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.
8. 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.
9. 70% is made from recycled materials
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.
10. 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.
