The amazing thing about AGA cookers is that they are always ready to use. The thermostatic controls maintain a consistent temperature, while high levels of insulation within the outer casing and beneath the hotplate covers ensure economic fuel consumption. This releases a unique source of gentle warmth into the kitchen.

This ensures the food’s natural flavour and moisture is preserved and can be tasted by your quests. Ask any AGA owner and will tell you that they can really taste the difference in their food.
