Racing Green. You don't often hear that color when it comes to ovens. But then again you don't often come across ovens as amazing as the Aga, which is available in a whopping 15 colors. Take that Kenmoore, GE and all you other bland brands that think almond, white and black are the only colors kitchens should have.
The Aga doesn't just look different, it's also built different. In fact, it's probably the only state-of-the-art kitchen appliance deliberately made of cast iron. How state of the art? Well, you never have to turn it on or off, or set the temperature. It's always on and ready to use. It does that by transferring heat efficiently from its core element to the built-in cast iron ovens. It seems that good old cast iron (surrounded by vermiculite) is so heat efficient, you can build an oven out of it that you never need to turn off. Who knew?
Cooking with an Aga is different, too, and Aga owners swear their food tastes better. That's because the heat from an Aga radiates from all sides of the cast iron ovens equally, not from one or two heating elements. Supposedly this means your food will retain more of its flavor and texture as it cooks. Of course, all food doesn't cook at the same temperature, which is why an Aga is actually made up of 2-6 small ovens, each of which maintains a different temperature. If you want to broil something, just put it in the broil oven. Same goes for baking, simmering, roasting, etc.
new. old. fashioned.
The look of an Aga is a "new old fashioned" flavor that foregoes sharp, angular lines and stainless steel. While it's definitely easier to fit an Aga into an old-world or country style kitchen, with a little effort I think you can get it to look at home in a modern style kitchen too, since the lack of controls give it a streamlined appearance, and some of the color choices (purple, for instance) are decidedly new world.
