The attainable classic
It may be one of the world's most recognisable design icons yet an Aga cooker is surprisingly easy
to own. You can, for example, slot an Aga neatly between standard kitchen units occupying a
space no greater than an ordinary range cooker. Neither do you need an extensive kitchen area:
before now Agas have been installed in a lighthouse, and even a narrow boat!
While many owners view the classic chimney-style flue as part of the Aga tradition, it's by no
means the only option available. You can install an Aga against virtually any wall and certain
models can even be placed within an island unit. Aga versatility also extends to your choice of
fuel sources, with natural gas, propane gas, electricity or oil all possibilities, and all with
equally delicious results.
It's the unique way an Aga cooks that is of course the real story behind the legend. Unlike conventional
cookers, Aga cast iron ovens use indirect radiant heat so food does not dry out, but retains its
natural taste and flavour. And today's generation of Aga cookers extend those options still further
with the choice of an Aga Module or an Aga Companion, which feature such refinements as fan convection
and gas or ceramic hobs.
