Newest Review: ... chipped doors. Fan & Normal Oven constantly running too hot & burn everything. Then suddenly without warning the ovens stop working altogether (usually coincides with Christmas). Every year I have to fork out another £200 to get 2 thermostats replaced. MY first cooker cost me £200 and lasted without fault for over ten years. Why can't Aga get it right ? Oh, and the plastic corners on the matching hood both fractured & dropped off. Oh, and the Engineers turn up, don't screw it back together properly & leave wires trailing. Both the product & the service are appalling. This product fits into the same category as the Smeg Fa... more

This cooker is utter rubbish. Cost £5,000 5 years ago. Turned up with chips & scratches - but hey, they gave me a free touch-up paint pen. I eventually got them to replace the chipped doors.

I expected my solid fuel cooker to see me out, When it was bought I was told it would last a lifetime and that parts were still supplied for some of the first Agas ever made.What has happened? My Aga is less than thirty years old and a necessary part cannot be supplied rendering the cooker unusable unless a second hand part cab obtained.One of the many reasons for having an Aga is its longevity. A solid fuel Aga needs few parts. However where does this leave the new"all dancing"versions? Are Agas being brought into line with most other kitchen appliances as far as lifetime is concerned? An Aga will be considered expensive if it only lasts about 10 years. A justification of price was that replacement was rarely needed.

We used to have a 4 oven gas Aga, which was a wonderful appliance. When moving house just over 2 years ago we were delighted to find that our new home also had an Aga, and I had every expectation that this would be a happy experience. How mistaken was that? The 13 amp model is quite a different beast. In 2 years we have had the thermostat replaced twice, as well as the circuit board. Even with the AIMS the temperature of the ovens has been hard to control, but worse than this is the external temperature of the appliance which is way too hot! If we had young children in the house we would not be able to run this cooker at a temperature that would cook food. It has taken a Read the complete review

Wish we had read some of the reviews on this site before we bought our gas 3 oven Aga with AIMS. We have had it for two years and its the worst investment we've ever made. Around £6000 and its broken down roughly once every two to three months, usually at the worst time; last Christmas with 14 people in the house. It is still not working properly, it doesn't cook better than a normal oven and its disadvantages far outweigh the advantages. Dont get one of these! Our old oven which was supposed to be a temporary oven, pending a kitchen refurb, but we actually had it for 6 years. It was the cheapest B@Q oven for about £150, it cooked better and never broke down. Our . Read the complete review
