Mention the name Aga to most people and they may conjure up images of good food and fine living. Many, however, are unaware of the rich and interesting history that lies behind the world’s most famous cookers. Although often regarded as British, the Aga actually began life in Sweden. The cooker that has become the heart of the home in over 750,000 households around the world was invented by Dr Gustav Dalén, a blind Nobel Prize-winning physicist.
Appalled that his wife and their maid had to constantly tend to their old-fashioned Range Cooker, Dalén set about designing a thoroughly modern cooker. It’s unlikely he could have predicted that his invention would go on to be widely acclaimed as a design icon. But there’s so much more to the Aga brand than meets the eye: A range of conventional cookers, wonderfully cool Refrigeration products, and a line-up of Aga-branded Stoves to suit every home. The AGA Group acquired the Waterford Stanley and Waterford Appliances Brands in the Republic of Ireland, which also has a distinguished reputation as a manufacturer of Range Cookers.
Aga appliances come with excellent build quality, reliability and customer service.

It's difficult to know where to start when reviewing Aga's meteoric portfolio of cookers; the manufacturer appears to go to the ends of the earth to produce such a massive array of Kitchen Appliances.
Today, the company behind the iconic Aga produces a range of cookers for every cook and every kitchen. In addition to the traditional Heat-Storage cookers, there is the S Series collection of distinctly Conventional cookers, the new Aga Masterchef and the Aga Modules. For Heat Storage cookers, choose between two, three or four ovens and the source of fuel that suits you the most: natural gas, propane gas, electricity and oil (kerosene or diesel).
Where the Conventional range is concerned, Aga believes there is no better traditional Range Cooker on the market. Aga is also pleased to promote its Integrated and Freestanding Module cookers. The Freestanding Module offers a range of cooking options, with a conventional oven and integral grill, fan oven and a gas or electric ceramic hob. For domestic Gods and Goddesses with more modest needs, Aga offer the Rayburn Cookmaster range. It features a choice of fuel, size and design options, and certain models are thermostatically controlled to maintain a constant temperature. Aga describe its range of refrigeration equipment as 'seriously cool and seriously capable!' Filling out the fleet is the Side-by-Side Fridge Freezer, the Premium Wine Cellar and the Premium Refrigerators.
Unlike most types of stoves, every Aga is almost completely recyclable. Since the first model was made over 80 years ago, 70% of each Aga has been made from previously used materials.
Aga appliances carry a 2 Year Parts and Labour Warranty.

Most Agas are made from previously used materials, while £7 million has been spent on ensuring emissions from the Aga foundry in Coalbrookdale – on the original site where Abraham Derby started the industrial revolution – are as clean as the air you breathe.
