The last thing we want as a business is for anyone to convert their cooker and then be disappointed so I thought I'd keep a note here of the drawbacks I have noted in the past and any that come up from customers over time. Lets get started, its not a huge list thankfully!
Thanks to Linda for this one, what an expression!
Made me 😂 "I'm not the only one who loves our drying rack, I lifted it off the Aga this morning and Bella refused to move so she came with it!!" Thank you Sarah!
This one is entitled "Don't even think about moving this rack butler."
This one is lovely thank you Marion!
And last but by no means(!) least is Max. Good lord!
One of Philips jobs this week was unusual in that it was a straight installation of a cooker; no refurb or conversion required on site. This is not something we do often as we don't have enough 'stock' of cookers but occasionally we can do it if the customer wants something we have a 'spare' of!
Note: The cooker does have its original badge! We've digitally removed it from the images as it is a trademark of Aga Rangemaster Ltd.
In this case it's a 4 oven post 1995 'Deluxe' model. It's all black so every enamel part has been re-enamelled and every internal casting (like the ovens) has been shotblasted or replaced if need be. With Philips usual professionalism the cooker was completely assembled in the workshop and the 'Electrikit' system fully tested before it made it to the customers house (Hi Mrs T!).
As you can see the ovens are looking fab. These are original castings that have been through a brutal shotblasting process to remove any rust, food debris and other gunk. They are shiny as almost like new when completed. We always supply one of our non stick oven liners; stops things getting mucky again! The doors are of course all brand new too. New liners, seals and insulation.
Here is the control panel. The top oven temperature is controlled with the up/down arrows next to the LCD screen. Pressing them briefly displays the 'target' temp so you know what the cooker is aiming for and it then reverts to displaying the current oven temperature. The left hand dial controls the temp in the module or warming cupboard (left hand ovens) and the two dials to the right control the hotplates. Both can be hotplates or simmering plates individually or together as required; and they never go cold!
The full effect, LOVE the tiles with the black cooker!
This was a job from last week which went a bit viral on Facebook!
When I spotted this review on our professional chefs pad, oven glove and towel set for range cookers just after Christmas it made my day!
Overnight creamy porridge? Measure your oats and water (one part oats to two of water) and put into a pan. Put the lid on and set the pan onto the back of your range cooker in the evening. Next morning, move the pan to the simmering plate and stir once. It will boil before you have made your cup of tea or coffee to accompany it and be super creamy and delicious!

We LOVE Aga & Rayburn range cookers and everything the fabulous Aga Rangemaster Ltd & Aga Rangemaster Group Ltd do. We are not connected to or endorsed by them though and nor do we source any of the bits and bobs in our online store from them.
We sell many products specifically for Aga or Rayburn range cookers but these are almost all Blake & Bull originals; they have our name on them. The Blake & Bull logo guarantees our super high standards and amazing customer service.
