Aga range cooker re-enamelling is, sadly!, not the same as painting your cooker. To re-enamel your cooker it is shot blasted back to bare metal and then powdered glass is melted onto the newly coloured surface at 1600 degrees. Needless to say this is not something we do in your kitchen! If you want to know more this Wikipedia article makes a better job of explaining it than I can!
What we actually do is a part exchange.Over the course of a day your cooker's hob and lids are swapped for new ones. Your originals are re-enamelled and will be fitted to another customers oven. We always fit new black enamelled lids to new hobs, it simply doesn't look right otherwise! I'm afraid we cannot fit lids with rims any other colour than black.
We combine a new hob and lids with a deep clean or re-enamel (in any colour you like) of the cooker front. Using a step by step process developed over many years we remove baked on carbon and grease from the front of the cooker. This includes the main panels, door surrounds, hinges and door fronts. Have a look at the before and after below.
Now sadly we don't have reviews of this process like the ones for our chip repair paint. We do though have some great 'before and after' examples and the reactions to those images on Facebook, some of the comments are from the owners themselves. Don't panic if you don't use Facebook, you can still see the pictures and peoples comments. Follow the links below for a sample of what we do, they are quite dramatic!
Whilst re-enamelling ovens we normally take the opportunity to renew the under hob and door insulation. The new lids we fit are factory supplied with the latest insulation so taking the time to improve all the other efficiency related areas makes a great deal of sense when refurbishing your range cooker. If you'd like to learn more about the efficiency improvements we can make to your oven follow this link 'Range cooker efficiency improvements'.
