Fools and their money

modern Aga's are crap.


Very expensive crap.

My Gran's old (1950's) AGA was great. On all day (solid fuel) and heated the whole house and this was before average houses had central heating. Heated the water as well.

New ones are just shiny status symbols for people with more money than sense.

When we were buying a new house last year, we looked at several with expensive AGA or look alikes. I asked one owner about the running costs. She looked coy before saying that she never used it. "It came with the house and we can't afford to have it ripped out."

We didn't buy a house with a 'range cooker'.

Very expensive crap.
