Electric Aga Conversion - which one!

Postby roche1800 on Tue May 30, 2017 8:41 pm

I was looking to buy a Total Control 3 oven aga, it comes prebuilt so it won't fit because I thought it could be taken apart.

So my conclusion is to buy an old oil one and convert as they can easily be stripped down.

Can anyone give me an insight into the pros and cons of the various electric conversion kits?

Cheers

I see that the Prejet oil conversion has been quietly ditched too

On holiday at present so briefly: single element conversion from about £1600 fitted,expensive to run, not flexible and some of the kits out there are downright dangerous,(Aga 13 amp is well manufactured and safe, not produced any more) if you go this way make sure you do your homework. Electrikit 3 element conversion, very flexible, at least £500 more but payback can be less than 3 years, well manufactured and independantly certificated. Oil warm don't skimp on safety. www.ccconversions.co.uk

Hello, we're looking to do the same - buy an old oil Aga and have it converted with the electrickit as it looks to be the best sort for our needs. We're on a bit of a budget to can't afford to do it any other way. Any opinions on the matter would be greatly appreciated, especially if there is anything in particular we need to look out for when buying a secondhand Aga.

Cheers!

some good bargains to be had out there. The ovens need to be in good condition with no cracks around the front frame, the hobs are not required or the barrel and flue manifold. So basically any Aga in reasonable condition can be picked up for not a lot, and spares are readily available.

Lots of potential raw material on ebay.
I have seen cookers go for £0.99
