Re-enamelling an Aga range cooker | From cream to claret in Cumbria

Good morning all! The images in this album are from Tuesdays work in the North of England! Philip, our senior technician, led this job but was ably assisted by Preet our newest trainee technician! This was in fact his first ever job with Blake and Bull and only his second day with us after a long journey up to Cumbria from our Wiltshire base on Monday!

Worth noting as always that the badges are present in real life, we digitally remove them from our images as they are not our trademark. We are of course proudly independent!

4 oven cream Aga range cooker

This is a 4 oven 'Deluxe' cooker and the eagle eyed amongst you will have noticed that it is a post-1995 cooker. You can tell from the 'T' shaped towel rail bracket in the middle of the hobs. Earlier 'Deluxe' cookers (installed between 1974 and 1995) had 4 towel rail brackets and two separate rails!

The inside of the doors on an Aga range cooker

By no means the worst door liners we have seen but of course when we install a newly re-enamelled front we replace door liners, seals and insulation too!

The doors on the warming cupboard are not insulated; you can tell as they are flat compared to the deep main oven liners!

Claret 4 oven Aga range cooker

Tada! Beautiful and flawless Claret enamel installed along with new black hobs, lids and everything really!
