Reconditioned Aga range cooker with 'Electrikit' conversion; sometimes only black will do!

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.

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!
