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.

The AGA cooker is made in Britain at the company’s Shropshire factory.
Today’s AGA is made in exactly the same way as it always has been. Quite simply, molten iron is poured into moulds - it’s this technique that gives the castings their characteristic surface. – each one is unique- and sets the AGA apart from the ubiquitous mass produced uniformity. And while most cookers are spray-painted in minutes, the AGA cooker’s multiple protective coats of gleaming vitreous enamel take three days to apply. It’s this enamelling that helps ensure the working life of an AGA cooker.
Each part of the AGA cooker and there are many – is meticulously inspected and colour checked before engineers carry out the final build in the new owner’s home. The construction of the AGA cooker is British manufacturing at it’s finest.
It is the radiant heat from the walls of the cast-iron ovens that makes the AGA the world’s best cooker. The AGA cooker has elements in each of the cast iron ovens and hotplates that retain and radiate heat within the cooker. Food is cooked gently from all sides by the radiant heat. The cast iron ovens of the AGA are gentle on the food and lock in moisture, flavour, texture and importantly, goodness, meaning the food you serve tastes delicious.
Put simply, the AGA treats food as it should be treated – meaning you get the very best out of your ingredients. It’s not just statement food that the AGA cooker is renowned for. It’s just as kind to a 10 minute supper thrown together on a busy weekday evening. You’ll never taste a better pizza, for example, and the AGA cooks pasta, rice and stir-fries to perfection incredibly quickly.
