Aga Cooker, Aga Cookers and iron range cookers.
Like the red telephone box and the mini, the cast iron range stove is a British design icon. A range stove effortlessly cooks food to perfection, sealing in juices and flavour's beautifully, while also performing the functions of a hob, kettle and toaster. This is an appliance which excels at its primary function, and goes far, far beyond it. Aga style cookers have a presence which isn’t only seen but felt. They are a symbol of the traditional country idyll; heating even the largest kitchens, creating a place for the family to congregate and forming a comforting kitchen focal point.These are just some of the reasons a shiny wood burning cooker is the first choice in so many homes. They are found in nearly every big country kitchen, as well as urban locations which benefit from the homely and warm atmosphere they create. If they’re good enough for number 10 Downing Street, who are we to argue?
What is an AGA?
If you’re considering purchasing an Aga cooker, it’s worth remembering that Aga has become a colloquial term for the range stove, just as Hoover did for the vacuum cleaner. The name AGA is owned by the Rangemaster company, so only they are allowed to use the AGA brand and badge on their cookers. It’s important not to overlook other manufacturers such as The Eco Range Cooker Company, Esse, Heritage and Stoves, who offer high quality Aga style cookers with their own unique advantages.
A Modern Classic
Our oil, electric and wood burning cookers have been specially developed to solve one of the biggest problems with the original AGA. While the magnificent cookers have an image associated with rural bliss, they are often seen as a guilty pleasure for being notoriously heavy on fuel, polluting the atmosphere and costing around £1200 a year to run. Our unique patented technology makes our wood fired range stoves more eco-friendly, efficient and cost effective - great news for both the environment and your fuel bills.
The AGA must be almost constantly left on, while an Eco Range allows you to be in control. A timer can be set to heat only when you want it, saving around £1,000 a year in fuel and servicing costs compared to a classic AGA oil or gas cooker.
Your British Range Stove
Each cast iron range cooker is made to order, and we are proud to continue the tradition of quality British craftsmanship. We do not use Chinese or Taiwanese foundries; all iron work is cast in Oxford and the parts are enameled in Birmingham and assembled, polished and plated in Kent. They are built to last a lifetime and will complement the finest kitchens.
Your AGA style cooker will be custom made. This allows us to give you a choice of:
- Oil, wood or wood pellet fuels; each of which has its own advantages. Our oil model cooks at a fifth of the cost of running a classic AGA, and our wood and wood pellet models are carbon neutral.
- 3 oven design, allows for flexible cooking.
- Traditional colours to match your kitchen.
- Chrome or enameled lids.
- Balanced flue available on the oil models.
The range cooker has been a fixture in British kitchens since 1830, never once falling out of fashion or favour. We have redesigned this classic for an increasingly eco-aware world where fuel prices are at an all time high, while still offering perfect cooking, room heating and a beautiful traditional country kitchen look. Choose an Eco Range cooker and turn any house into a home.
