AGA

AGA Cookers
for Suffolk, Essex, and All of East Anglia

It was in 1922 that blind Nobel Prize-winning physicist Dr Gustaf Dalén invented the world’s first heat-storage cooker.

Dalén created a cast-iron cooker capable of every kind of cooking simultaneously, through its two large hotplates and two ovens. The now famous AGA was born and by 1929 manufacturing was under way at the AGA Heat Ltd factory in Smethwick.

The AGA cooker, is now part of the AGA Rangemaster group, and is made in Britain at the company’s Shropshire foundry in Coalbrookdale, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

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.

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 is measured not in years but in decades.

Of course, the modern AGA also contains state-of-the-art technology and is subject to rigorous quality controls and adherence to the latest environmental standards.

Cleaning your AGA

An AGA is a very easy appliance to keep clean, especially if you don’t allow it to get dirty.

Follow these hints and tips:

The main hot plates and hot ovens help to keep themselves clean by carbonising cooking spills and splashes. Just brush off the carbon dust. Stubborn stains may be more work, so don’t be afraid to use a wire brush on the plain cast-iron areas.

If spills become baked on to the enamel, use a soap filled pad, NOT TOO COARSE as these will scratch the enamel and DO NOT use oven cleaners. Splashes and spills on vitreous enamel should be wiped away as soon as possible, using a damp (not wet) soft cloth. The AGA e-cloths are ideal. (See our AGA Cookshop page on this website for more information or call us to purchase some). You can also use specific AGA enamel cleaner. NEVER USE A COLD WET CLOTH.

The inner linings of the ovens and insulating lids can be cleaned with a cream cleaner or for more stubborn marks, a soap filled pad. The lining will show some marks but will shine beautifully.

The doors may be lifted off to help with cleaning but don’t get them mixed up and NEVER immerse them in water.

The polished insulating lids and handrail can be cleaned with a damp, soapy cloth, followed by a wet cloth and finishing by polishing with a dry cloth.

Spillages of milk or fruit-juice on the enamel MUST be wiped away immediately as the acidity may stain the front plate and doors. Again use AGA e-cloths which are excellent and lint-free.

If liquids boil over or spill over around the hotplates, disappearing under the top plate, don’t worry, they will soon evaporate without causing any damage.

The insulating rings around each hotplate can be removed for cleaning, but again, don’t get them mixed up! Place them back in the same position, there is often a small notch mark which should face towards the rear of the cooker.

Some components, such as, the handrail brackets and side panels are powder coated (painted) and nothing abrasive should be used on them, even ‘Astonish’, use a soap filled pad.

If you see fluff or dust building up around the burner door or the flue chamber, safety remove it with a soft brush. DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner when the burner is alight.
