An Aga is an emotional thing if you have grown up with one in your kitchen…

This is the Aga of my childhood

Having grown up on a farm with a large Vanilla coloured Aga which produced not only virtually all the hot water we needed in the kitchen for washing up, laundry but also provided heat for the dogs on cold winter nights. It had four ovens at different temperatures, two large plates which at times could accommodate three pots, cook breakfast for one or a family gathering for twenty with three legs of lamb and all the accompaniments. It was riddled daily and filled with Anthracite. Today Agas come electrically or gas or oil operated.

The beautiful freestanding Aga

I remember a friend of mine, who was a superb cook at the end of a spell in Hong Kong with her banker husband, being given the choice of any stove for their Surrey farmhouse kitchen, choosing a great big post box red Aga. It might be freezing now, but spring is not far off. Reignite and reinvigorate a freestanding AGA Module or AGA 60 – a size to fit any kitchen – in a sunny colour that makes a statement and is elegant too. The burst of colour will bring a fresh spring feeling into your kitchen all year round. An AGA oven is, after all, forever stylish! Neutral and natural kitchens with a colour accent iconic AGA will create a personalised space for you and your family.

Recognised as the world’s best cooking appliance, the AGA oven does command from so many a level of adulation like no other in the food world. It’s deemed the number one appliance brand more a necessity than a luxury. Also revered as one of the top three design icons of the last century, and indeed this one. AGA represents a lifestyle, one that owners embrace and share fervently with others who instantly fall in love.

An Aga Boiling Kettle is synonymous with the warmth and hospitality of an AGA kitchen. We had a large Aluminium one, now they are all in glazed stainless steel. Lovely to look at, as the song goes, it can happily come to the tea table. It was an insulated easy grip handle. Also comes in a variety of the coolest colours.
