AGA Cleaning Guide

The summer and early autumn period is a good chance to switch your AGA off, spruce it up with a good clean all ready for peak usage throughout the cooler months. We’ve prepared some tips for you to help you through the process.

1. When cleaning any top surface spillages it is best to use a soft pad soaked in soapy water. We advise to use a soft pad to ensure the enamel isn’t scratched.  

2. The doors are removable, so don’t be afraid to give them a clean. To deep clean the door linings, place a towel on a work surface and carefully lift off the oven door, placing it enamel side down on to the towel. Clean with a soap filled pad to remove marks and avoid immersing the doors in water as excessive water can damage the insulation in the doors. With that said, never put the doors in the dishwasher. Carefully dry the doors before replacing. 

3. Inside the oven, use a wire brush on the cast-iron components in order to remove stubborn stains. If you are still finding baked-on stains difficult to remove, then just go over the grates with a damp sponge and some warm, soapy water.  

4. Some components such as the handrail brackets and side panels are powder coated (painted) and nothing abrasive should be used on them, even ‘Astonish’, use a soap filled pad for best results. 

Now you have a perfectly clean AGA, maintaining it will make life so much easier! Be sure to mop up any spills immediately with a damp, soapy cloth, particularly anything acidic such as orange juice as they cause stains. Also with the top being hot, spills can often become baked on if they’re not mopped up straight away and may need to be scraped in order to be removed, meaning that you could scratch the enamel. Afterwards you can buff the surface with a cloth for a shiny finish!

All in all, it is wise to purchase some AGA approved products to ensure the protection of your oven. Alternative products can cause costly damage to the enamel. We have a full range in store for purchase including wire brushes and chrome & enamel cleaner.
