In their own words, some well-known owners tell us why they believe the Aga is really rather special.
An Aga is the heart of the home Ė it makes life so much easier and warrmer.
Jasmine Guinness model
The kitchen is my favourite retreat. Itís got a fireplace where Iíve put the Aga. Itís transformed my attitude to cooking.
Martin Clunes actor
The kitchen was the centre of my family's life when we were growing up. And at the centre of the kitchen was the Aga.
Mary McCartney photographer
All those clichés are true Ė it really is the heart of the home.
Sophie Conran food writer
My perfect weekend would be spending it at our farmhouse having a big breakfast, reading the papers and listening to the Archers omnibus edition. Then going for a long walk and coming back to eat something thatís been cooking slowly in the Aga.
Janet Street-Porter writer/presenter
We had an Aga when I was growing up. My mother wonít cook on anything else. She simply refuses.
Tom Parker-Bowles writer and broadcaster
The Aga is an iconic part of British life. Iíve cooked on an Aga, since the day I was born, or at least my mother did. Iím very enthusiastic about it... This is Britain Ė youíve got to use an Aga.
Rick Stein chef
My cat Nigel loves sitting in front of the Aga, so I need to find him somewhere else to sit so I can keep it clear when Iím cooking.
Antony Worrall Thompson chef
I think the Aga makes people better cooks; theyíre generally technically better cooks because they understand cooking.
Jamie Oliver food writer
I use my Aga every day. It's nice, warm and the heart of the home. I love it to bits.
Alex James musician
Iíve had an Aga all my life. I could talk for hours about Agas I have known.
Emma Bridgewater designer
Thereís something about an Aga that makes it like a best friend always there, never complaining.
Susan Hampshire actress
And Iíve got my Aga, so I love it.
Alastair Mackenzie actor
I was brought up around the Aga. It has always symbolised for me such wonderful things: good food, warmth and protection I guess. I have this abiding memory of a terrible storm in í86 or í87 and the power being down all around us. But we were all huddled around the Aga feeling safe and protected.
Jodie Kidd model
My first home had an Aga. It was a modern home, but I love the Aga Ė everyone does. There are strong emotions about it. It warms the house and warms the room like a great big friend.
Raymond Blanc chef and food writer
When we're in the country, I'll put things in the Aga in the morning and take them out in the evening - a low, slow organic roasting thing.
Viscount David Linley designer
