Seal The Deal - Insulating Rope Seal Suitable For Aga Range Cookers

This week we have been bombarding you with DIY jobs that can be done during the Summer Switch Off & Spruce Up!Now, to shift the focus to your cast iron, how to care for it, what you can replace, and small tasks to make your hotplates look like new!..

After removing the expansion ringwe revealed areas where the rock wool insulation had dropped, in this case the rope seal was not sufficient to stop food debris and cooking moisture making its way into this gap. The hotplate was not properly insulated, it will have lost heat and been less efficient. 

Part of our re-enamelling refurbishment work when on site is making sure that insulation is topped up and updated. You can do this too!  And when doing so you might want to update your hot plate rope seal too, for something better suited to the task than the one above...

"This seal perfectly fits the gap left around the hot plates, above the blanket insulation. It is much better than using vermiculite or pieces of insulation as it can easily be removed, cleaned or replaced when is gets yucky from spilt food. Prompt delivery so I could fit before lighting the Aga for the winter."

This pleasing coil of insulation, fits snugly around your newly cleaned or replaced hotplate boosting your insulation and prevents any pesky debris slipping through! 

This new seal can of course be topped with a shot blasted expansion ring, or you can wire brush and season your own, here's how!

Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history.
