Why should I invest in an AGA heat-storage cooker? and how does an AGA stand out from other cookers?
Speak to any AGA owner and they'll wax lyrical about their cooker's qualities; its constant warmth, convenience and, of course, the superb cooking results. An AGA heat-storage cooker has longevity built-in and is an investment that will last for generations… its life-span is typically more three times longer than a conventional cooker.
Thanks to its cast-iron body the AGA cooker performs exceptionally well. It retains heat efficiently, meaning it's ready to cook whenever you are. This unique way of cooking, with radiant heat, is far gentler on food than the drying heat from conventional cookers – it locks in flavour, moisture and goodness for delicious results. Each model has a series of ovens offering the ideal level of heat for each type of cooking. The iconic AGA insulated covers reveal the boiling and simmering plates. Even better, having plenty of ovens at your disposal makes catering for large numbers easier, a great help in busy households.
In an AGA home, you may never need a toaster, electric kettle, bread maker or tumble drier – your AGA heat-storage cooker can do it all, and better. And with fewer appliances, your kitchen is less cluttered, as well as the opportunity to save on your home energy costs.

Yes. The AGA heat-storage cooker radiates a gentle warmth that dries your clothes beautifully, reducing your reliance on a tumble dryer. To do this, use an airer or clothes horse – be careful never to drape clothes or sheets over the ventilation holes on the burner door.
Another job the AGA cooker makes light work of is ironing items such as folded pillow slips or t-shirts simply place on the simmering plate cover over night to be 'AGA ironed'.
