If this is Tuesday, it must be England #87

If I could have one luxury appliance in our forever home, it would be an AGA range.

What is AGA?
Beneath the classic looks of every AGA range is a heart of cast iron: the entire range is an outstandingly efficient energy store, steadily transferring the heat from its core into its ovens and hotplates.

We had an AGA in the first house my parents bought and it was amazing.  Not only did it keep the kitchen toasty warm, it was such an experience to cook on it.  I remember that we had a huge frying pan that fit on the burner, it was large enough to fry eggs and bacon for the entire family!  We made toast on the burner as well, using two utensils similar to those round splatter screens you place over your frying pan.  In this case, the bread went in between the screens and was toasted to perfection.  I can't remember all the details of how Mum cooked on the AGA but I can remember that everything was delicious.  We also had doll bunk beds right next to it, and the cats loved their toasty sleeping spot.

Every time I watch Midsomer Murders or the recent cooking videos that Mary Berry has filmed in her home, there is an AGA.  They come in a variety of models and colors.

This seemed the perfect post for a chilly Tuesday!

I'd love to have this tea pot as well, in this color as this was the color of our AGA. 


  1. Oh, wow, Pamela, these stoves are gorgeous. Do they come in electric? Here in Bandon there is no natural gas, only propane and it is very expensive!! Love the tea pot!!

  2. I, too, have always wanted an AGA. And that cream color is the one I would choose.
