Thank you Mark, we agree! After a DIY Mini Re-Furb, your claret cooker certainly looks the part!
"Aga range cooker refurb - Bought the cleaning kitand two new lid topsand liners. Spent a day pimping our Aga range cooker. It looks amazing! Followed the clear instructions. Did a lot of scraping and sorted out some of the unsightly chips in the enamel. Really pleased and would definitely recommend. The only trouble we had was fitting the liners. That’s one fiddly job, but with a bit of perseverance we got it sorted. Apart from that it was easy."
We are at the start of the summer switch off season, and we are seeing some massively rewarding shots of community cookers that have had their seasonal overhaul.
There are many DIY jobs that you can do this season, for which we are building a healthy library of visual guides to coax you through the processes.
Here is one top tip from Matthew - "On all cookers it's a good idea to allow air to circulate under the lids while the cooker is off. If not you can get a little condensation that can rust the hotplate surface the the iron expansion rings around them...
When your cooker has cooled completely use a little kitchen roll with olive oil it and wipe a thin coating across the hotplate and expansion rings to protect it. Now find an old pencil, snap it in half and pop each under the front of each lid to raise it very slightly. This will let air circulate without looking ugly!"
