The Iconic Cooker - Hand crafted and still made in Britain
There are thousands of AGA owners who will tell you they can't imagine life without their AGA. It becomes the centre of the home. All manner of confessions happen leaning against the handrail. Friends and family are always keen to join in with the food preparation, making even the simplest of meals an event. And best of all, any AGA owner will tell you it produces the best tasting food in the world.
The story of the AGA cooker is one of award-winning innovation and a proud heritage stretching back to 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. Over many decades AGA has built a reputation for iconic design, uncompromising quality and award-winning innovation. 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.
The AGA cooker, is 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.
