WHY AGAS are great for cooking
- Boiling plate cooks rapidly, retaining foods natural flavour, colour, and nutrients.
- Roasting/baking oven radiates heat from all directions, cooking food evenly throughout and reduces shrinkage and dryness.
- Insulating lids retain the heat and keep the AGA ready for immediate use. When closed, the gentle warmth will dry and air lundry perfectly.
- Simmering plate gently heats food for perfect tenderness.
- Simmering oven slowly cooks food to perfection keeping all the flavour and goodness. It also keeps food warm without drying it out.
