Rust On Your Aga, When To Clean & When To Buy Refurbished Parts

Rust happens! Some is easy to deal with, a bit of elbow grease and some low impact cleaning products works wonders! 

But sometimes the rust is just too deep to come back from, even with a grinder.

The pesky divots that form reduce contact with your pan, and heat transfer. Making the hotplates less efficient and more expensive to run.

Rust occurs for different reasons,but most commonly when the cooker is turned off. If rust has appeared without your range having been turned off, you may need to do some troubleshooting. 

You can clean them up easily at home if the rust is light, with a good wire brush set, a cloth and some olive oil! 

But if you have pitting the best plan of action is to put in a shot blasted one!They weigh a fair bit! But we do post them, really we do! And yes, shot blasted cast really can look amazing!

I was shocked when an item weighing 30 kilos was delivered free!! Spot on service!" June 2019

There are other less weighty but equally impactful cast iron parts that can replaced too!

But if I had cleaned, scraped, and refurbished my cooker, then I would put a shiny one in!

And to insulation, protect, and seal its underside? A pleasing cosy coil of plump rope seal!  This prevents debris dropping through to the rock wool / modern insulation (if you have upgraded)below, and gives your insulation a boost - improving efficiency!
