Celebrating 95 years of AGA Cooking
The AGA name has long been synonymous with good food and fine living and the AGA Cookshop, featuring cookware and accessories, draws heavily on these values.
Whether you are planning to whip up a quick toasted cheese on the AGA hotplate or a dinner for 20 using the versatility of your AGA cooker, they have the tools to suit your needs. Their range of cookware, textiles and essential roasting and baking products have all been exclusively designed with AGA owners in mind.
Recognised as the world’s best cooking appliance, the AGA oven commands a level of adulation more often associated with the glitz of Hollywood fame – and generates similar devotion. It’s deemed the number one luxury appliance brand and revered as one of the top three design icons of the century. It’s the kitchen centrepiece of celebrities, professional chefs, royalty and homeowners across the globe. AGA represents a lifestyle, one that owners embrace and share fervently with others. AGA is proud to have been warming people’s kitchens and hearts since 1922! 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. Each part of an 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.
