"...if a rural conversation turns to the Aga - as it frequently does in the Shires - there will always be somebody who knows a chum who has a relation whose best friend has been cooking on an Aga before Johnny was a twinkle in Fanny Cradock's eye..." - Daily Telegraph.

Welcome to Aga Central, the independent Aga cooker resource.

The most popular part of this site is the forum where Aga owners, those that are looking to own an Aga, independent Aga engineers and chefs exchange ideas and information. Take a look, register, join in and have fun.

Other areas that might be of interest are our blog, our Frequently Asked Questions resource, our Aga history & ephemera project and an article on our own little Aga Saga.

If you're an Aga service engineer wishing to offer your services to the community you can place your details on our Service Engineer sub-forum available on our forums here. We've had a great many engineers mailing us wishing to advertise on this site and even more members of the community wishing to be put in contact with engineers so a new sub-forum has been set up for that purpose. 0

Please read the service engineer guidelines before posting your entry.

This site serves a predominantly UK based community but engineers from any other part of the world are welcome as we do get quite a number of overseas visitors.

We hope that this new service helps the community with their servicing issues.

Hubert's three lid Aga

Hubert from Holland sends through images of this amazing three lid Aga.

Not much is known about the history of the thing but Hubert suggests that a small number were made for the restaurant business, this example being one of them.

Along with the images came this link to another three lid aga.

Hubert is selling this example for 3500 euro's. Anyone interested should contact us and we'll send through his details.

I've opened a discussion topic on our forums here just in case any readers can fill us in on this type of Aga.

UPDATE: Aga man provides the following details via the forums: "Aga made in the '30's and '40's H and J series "heavy duty " cookers but the only one I ever saw(in bits) has square lids and although there were difference in the front plates they were not the same as this one. I have spoken to a Guy from Egypt and he say's his mother has one that is almost back to back in that there are ovens back and front with one fire box."

UPDATE 2: John provides the following link to Aga's site which provides more details on the aga and its ilk. Step through pages 1 and 2: http://www.rayburn-web.co.uk/150.htm.
