Because the AGA heat-storage cooker is always warm, it's not uncommon for people to have the misconception that it's expensive to run. The truth though, is when at normal heat the AGA cooker doesn't need to use a lot of energy thanks to its cast-iron, fully insulated body. Cast-iron retains heat and then transfers it throughout its ovens and hotplates at a steady, efficient rate.
Another thing to consider is that an AGA heat-storage cooker does more than just cook delicious food. It's a domestic workhorse and can do the work of a toaster, electric kettle and bread maker, meaning you spend less on kitchen appliances and minimise your energy consumption.
Each new AGA heat-storage cooker is made in Shropshire in the UK largely from reclaimed iron, including old cast-iron cookers, drain covers, old machinery, door fittings etc and, in turn each old AGA is recyclable to a large proportion, meaning you'll never find one on a landfill site.
An AGA heat-storage cooker can also do the same jobs as many of your domestic appliances more efficiently. That means you can give your toaster, electric kettle, bread maker and even your tumble drier a break, which could help you reduce your domestic energy usage. Another thing to keep in mind is that the AGA heat-storage cooker is built to last for generations.
We're also dedicated to developing more efficient energy sources. This includes programs using micro-generated electricity such as wind, solar power and heat pumps.
