An AGA can be quite easy to keep clean, particularly if you don’t allow it to become dirty. Try these tips to keep the gleam on your AGA cast iron range:
The Roasting and Baking oven only need to be brushed out occasionally with your wire brush. Clean the hotplates and slow cook oven with a stiff brush and a damp cloth. Ovens on the AGA Hotcupboard and Integrated Module may be cleaned with a damp, soapy cloth.
A word of caution: do not use "oven cleaners".
All that is needed to keep the vitreous enameled surfaces bright and clean is a daily rub over with a damp cloth and, maybe, a little soapy water, followed by a clean, dry duster.
If milk or fruit juice, or anything containing acid, is spilt on the vitreous enamel, be sure to wipe off immediately. Also, clean off any condensation streaks on the front plate around oven doors, or the vitreous enamel may be permanently discolored.
If spills have become baked on to the enamel, use a soapy pad, not too coarse, to avoid scratching the enamel.
A word of caution: do not use a steam cleaner to clean your AGA cast iron range or harsh detergents. Only use a damp cloth.
Insulated Covers & Doors
The linings of the insulated lids and oven doors may be cleaned with a soapy pad. The doors may be lifted off to make cleaning easier, but we recommend you keep track of where each door belongs so they don’t get mixed up and placed on the wrong door.
The polished insulating lids and handrail can be cleaned with a damp soapy cloth, followed by a wet cloth, finishing by polishing with a clean dry cloth. For stains attracted to the underside of the insulated cover, Krud Kutter is an excellent product to help remove stains and getting the insulated cover to shine like new.
A word of caution: do not immerse doors in water as they are packed with insulating material and will be damaged by excessive moisture and submersion.
There's no need to fret if liquids boil over or spill around the hotplates, as they will soon evaporate without damage. Like the cast iron ovens, the cast iron hotplates may be cleaned with your stiff wire brush, a damp cloth and a bit of oil for re-seasoning.
