How to Choose Your AGA Cast Iron Cooker

We have created an AGA for every cook and every kitchen, so it is important that you choose the cooker that is best suited for your lifestyle. 

 

At AGA, we understand that life is changing, and you need your kitchen to work harder for you than ever before. That's why there are two types of AGA cookers you can choose. Both cook using radiant heat, however, R Series models (24/7 Radiant Heat) are designed to always be on and ready to cook whereas eR Series models (Everyday Radiant Heat) offer greater flexibility and can be switched on and off as required.

R Series : 24/7 Radiant Heat

If you're looking for an AGA to remain on all of the time, keeping the kitchen cosy and ready to cook when you are, then the R7 Series cookers are the collection for you. 24/7 AGA cookers do much more than just cook. They take the place of a tumble drier, toaster, bread maker and electric kettle and can even get creases out of freshly laundered items and in a home with a 24/7 AGA the heating will tend to go on later in the season and off earlier.
