Benefits Cast Iron
Whether its Stanley, AGA or Rayburn food tastes better simply because a cast iron cooker cooks better, using kind-to-the-food radiant-heat to seal the food, locking in moisture, goodness and flavour.
Cast Iron History
Every cast iron cooker comes with a sense of history built in and is manufactured to the same exacting standards. Molten iron is poured into moulds and every cast is then hand-dressed, hand treated to 800 degrees Celsius and shot-blasted clean. It is this technique that gives the castings their characteristic surface - each one is unique.
Each cooker is then coated in a gleaming vitreous enamel finish.
Food Tastes Better
Food tastes better simply because a cast iron cooker cooks better, using kind-to-the-food radiant-heat to seal the food, locking in moisture, goodness and flavour.
The heat radiates and is transferred to the cast-iron ovens, releasing steadily from all surfaces simultaneously, ensuring a gentler cooking process than the fierce direct heat of a conventional cooker.
This radiant heat cooking method is what preserves more of the food's moisture, flavour, texture and goodness.
Cast-iron also reduces cooking smells and flavour transfer, making it possible to cook a variety of dishes in the same oven at the same time, unlike other range cookers.

Baking Oven (AGA Only)
Much like a traditional baker's brick oven, the AGA baking oven radiates a moderate heat for evenly baked bread and perfectly moist cakes. As cast-iron retains its heat, you can even open the door to check on your bakes.
With its warm temperature, the simmering oven is perfect for slow-cooking or finishing dishes such as casseroles, stews and puddings. It can also be used for steaming, as the radiant heat locks in the goodness and structure of vegetables.
