Yes. The AGA heat-storage cooker radiates a gentle warmth that dries your clothes beautifully, reducing your reliance on a tumble dryer. To do this, use an airer or clothes horse – be careful never to drape clothes or sheets over the ventilation holes on the burner door.
Another job the AGA cooker makes light work of is ironing items such as folded pillow slips or t-shirts simply place on the simmering plate cover over night to be 'AGA ironed'.

The constant warmth of an AGA heat-storage cooker actually makes cleaning much easier. This is because heat is always steadily radiating, carbonising any cooking spills and splashes in the process. That means the hot ovens and hotplates practically clean themselves and only need an occasional brush out.
A daily wipe with a damp cloth should be enough to maintain the shine of your vitreous enamel surfaces. If spills are left, they bake on and are more difficult to remove. In this case, use a recommended AGA cleaning product to easily remove the stain. Cleaning products are available at your dedicated AGA shop.
With just a little practice, all your favourite dishes can be transformed when cooking with the AGA heat-storage cooker. Although different from conventional cooking, cooking on an AGA is easy and once it clicks you'll never look back.
These few simple guidelines will help:
- Use the simmering plate as a griddle
- Grill at the top of the roasting oven
- Cook on the floor of the roasting oven for pie crusts and frying
- Use the 80:20 rule; cook the first part of the meal using one of the hotplates and then cook the other 80% in one of the ovens
- Slow cook overnight in the warming oven
