50 Shades of AGAs

50 Shades of AGAs

Traditional AGAs have been a status symbol of a country house since they were invented in 1922. The timeless design and impressive endurance of these heat-storage cookers mean they remain a popular choice for many homeowners. Staying on constantly, they kept a house warm as well as slow-roasting food to make it taste better than a traditional oven. In more modern times, they have evolved to include an 'off' switch, making them more environmentally friendly, and they now come in more colours than ever before. Here are some of our finest homes with AGA’s and AGA-style cookers in the heart of the home.
