Can I dry washing on my AGA and do I need a drying rack?

Yes of course is the answer, with a few caveats! Firstly resting your washing directly on the top of the AGA can scorch the washing but you can also keep too much heat in the enamel and damage it. That is why an AGA drying rack is a good plan. 

These come with a stacker if you have a large family (or run a laundry!)


We also sell an AGA towel rail extender. Not only does this double your rail space but it keep dangling washing away from the vents that suck air into your AGA. Too much washing to close to the front can put your AGA out in this way! It will also, sadly, melt your AGA badge in some cases. Too much heat is trapped behind the washing and the badges become hotter than they are designed to be! 

These are particularly clever!
