To me, nothing says cozy kitchen like an English country kitchen, complete with an AGA. While I loved my Wolf cooktop and wall ovens, there's just something about an AGA that has me smitten.
Aren't they great? AGAs were invented in 1929 and originally were heated using slow-burning coal and were on all day, providing heat to the entire kitchen on cold winter days. Nowadays they are programmable and run on natural gas or electricity. They're certainly not cheap but they are a true workhorse in the kitchen. I love the idea of their multiple ovens, warming plate and wide range of colours.
If you're looking for something with a little more warmth and personality than an industrial stainless steel range, I think investing in an AGA is worth every penny. What do you think?
