Hubert from Holland sent through these images of an Aga with three hotplates/lids. I've never seen one before but if anyone does have any details of the beast or ones like it please feel free to post them here.

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.

I have also seen one with square lids.
From memory it had two full depth ovens with kick pedal opening
It also had two fires ( configured fire /oven /fire /oven) so I presume the left oven surrounded by two fires was the hotter one.
I think I once saw a pic on an "identify your Aga web page" but cant find it now

Hi John,

Sorry for the delay in responding, I've been pretty busy with the photography business of late. Great information, well found. I'm off to a meeting today but will try and add it to the main site as soon as I can.

Cheers

I wonder if this page could be copied and archived ?

It was actually under the Rayburn part of the Aga Site .
I think there could be a danger that it could be lost if their site is updated.
It was not easy to find , it was merely by chance I found it! And it would be a shame to lose such a piece of history.
The main Aga site has a similar Identification page but without the Commercial models. The refurbishers have a similar incomplete history.

Can we save it in a page of our own ?

Hi John,

I know exactly what you mean about the potential for it to vanish one day. The problem is that it'll be copyright information otherwise I'd just lift the text and images. I'm not sure if anything can be done about it really, unless someone writes their own article from available information and provides their own images or drawings. Not very likely to happen I don't think.
