Do any of you CH's have an Aga stove. I am in the market to put in a new stove. I love the look of it but wanted to know your thoughts if you are actually using one.

    Not me personally but a good friend has one. They turn it off in the summer because it is "always on." He has the traditional radiant one without gas burners - excellent for long and slow, but I would not attempt fast and hot (eg Asian) cooking on it. It also weighs a ton - make sure your floor can support it.

    I personally would not get one...seems impractical.

      we are looking at the 36 inch 5 burner gas which does not stay on all the time. I think the European verison is the one that stays on all the time. We have stone floors so we would be good with weight, anyone else have any feed back?

        We were looking at the same stove and the oven is so small you can't put a standard cookie sheet in it that was the deal breaker for us just a thougth
