Top Ten Agas In STUNNING Kitchens

To Aga or not to Aga? That is the real question!
And, to be honest, I'm still not sure what the answer is....

Let me lay out my quandary for you, while you feast your eyes on the Top Ten Modern Country Kitchens With Agas...

The main point is the look of the almighty Aga. Yes, there is not much that beats the Aga in terms of cosy, country kitchen looks. Agas have become a quintessential part of any imagined rustic idyll.

They deliciously dominate the room, with their warmth, their size, their amazing design: chunky, curvy, timeless.

But, but, but....through extensive research, I've come to realise that the look seems to be the only true advantage.

You might say, what about the heat? Many people find them unpleasantly hot. You're basically paying for a massive radiator to be on whether you like it or not. Not really eco-friendly.

And then there's the fact that when Agas get unbearably hot, you have to turn them off for half the year, so you need another oven anyway. That seems crazy-thinking to me.

And who could forget the cost. Not only the initial outlay but the ongoing an,d frankly, hefty running and maintenance costs. This can easily run into tens of thousands of pounds...

The temperatures are unpredictable too. I love baking and I don't want 'warmish', I want exact temperatures. I want to know where I am when I'm cooking...

Now there are certainly ways around some of these issues: reconditioned Agas are widely available for a fraction of the price.

And it's possible to get Agas with add-on attachments to provide year-round usage. Granted, these attachments make the final product gargantuan, but they'll prevent the look of an oven here, an oven there, an oven over there......

So you see my predicament? I'm in a Modern Country Style pickle! I just cant get away from those stunning, stunning LOOKS.

I'm completely torn. Can you tell?

Take Care
Until Next Time,

Hi Sarah!

I love, love, love the look of the Aga ranges and would kill to have one... having said that I also agree with all of your concerns.

I wonder if Aga would consider making changes to accommodate these valid concerns? I am sure (?) they would have many more people considering a purchase if they just made a few changes to address these environmental/economical issues.

Thanks for yet another wonderful post!

Happy Spring from Cathy in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Sarah, I understand completely. It's unbelievable how much I love the look of the Aga, especially a black one that would let me feel like I was cooking on an ancient cast iron wood stove. And I love the *idea* of the Aga. But it simply is not practical, as you described so well.

Have you considered an Everhot (shown in the Davonport image with the LG Normandy Grey recommendation)? It's fully electric, almost all models have the option of two hot plates, or one and one induction plate. Each oven and hob is fully controllable, there's eco mode... the list goes on! When our kitchen renovation starts we'll be ordering ours!

I really want to thank Dr Emu for saving my marriage. My wife really treated me badly and left home for almost 3 month this got me sick and confused. Then I told my friend about how my wife has changed towards me. Then she told me to contact Dr Emu that he will help me bring back my wife and change her back to a good woman. I never believed in all this but I gave it a try. Dr Emu casted a spell of return of love on her, and my wife came back home for forgiveness and today we are happy again. If you are going through any relationship stress or you want back your Ex or Divorce husband you can contact his whatsapp +2347012841542 or email emutemple@gmail.com website: Https://emutemple.wordpress.com/ Https://web.facebook.com/Emu-Temple-104891335203341
