Basic electric conversions and why we don't recommend them

Basic electric conversions essentially pop an element (like a huge spiral lightbulb filament) where the heat source of your cooker was before. They retain all the massive iron castings and have to work super hard as a result. The elements burn out, the control panels burn out and the spurs too. Some are even installed on plugs that promptly melt! 

We never installed any of these basic systems know collectively as '13amp' systems; they do not make owners happy and we do not like unhappy customers! It's not great business and we'd like happy customers buying accessories and drying racks etc from us for many years to come!

Our 'Electrikit' conversions are completely different, we use 3 or 4 elements closer to where they are needed for extra control. Sound good? Find out more on our 'Converting Aga range cookers to electricity' homepage.
