SMEG Range Cooker The Numbers Have Come Off!

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

It always amazes me that some expensive makes of ovens, cookers and ranges have numbers on their facias that are transfers and they come off really easily when you go to clean them. Just touching them with a cloth is sometimes all it takes to take all the numbers off.  When we get these to clean we advise the customer accordingly and then clean them very carefully. The customer is usually fine about this as they normally have already rubbed off some of the numbers themselves.

I cleaned a fairly new (the flats where it was are only a few years old) Siemens single oven today and noticed that most of the numbers on the facia were already off which meant that using the oven would now be guess work.

I have noticed this problem before especially on older SMEG Range Cookers though I have noticed that newer SMEG Range Cookers now have the numbers etched into them which means they don't come off. There doesn't seem any way to fix the problem except to replace the facia. We have had to arrange this only once for a customer and the manufacturer CDA were very good about it supplying and replacing the whole facia for free which I thought was amazing customer service.

Eco Oven Cleaning

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

We are currently trailing a system to make our cleaning process totally 100% green; I am doing this is my van. This means I am using a system that it is 100% caustic free. Our current process is totally caustic free within the home but I am trialling a new dipping solution which is non caustic. This is working well and when I have trailed it for a few more weeks we will look at implementing it in all of our vans.

AGA Cooker 13 Amp Running Costs

By Graham Rogers | Uncategorized

I've just read in this months 'Period Living Magazine' an article where the journalist is going to remove their oil AGA and replace it with a new 13 Amp electric AGA with controllable heat – basically you switch it off at night to save on the cost of electricity. The reasons she gives are that it will be more economical to run because of this. As far as I am aware the cost of a new 13 Amp AGA will be very close to the running costs of an oil fired AGA. The only differences are with a 13 Amp AGA you are aren't going to have to service it twice a year like the Oil one. You won't be able to heat the water with the electric one as it doesn't have a boiler.

There are independent companies that also do conversions on Oil AGAs so that they either have an injection unit or an electric unit fitted so that the AGA works with a 13 Amp plug. See AGA cooker conversions. So it may be a cheaper consideration to have your oil AGA cooker converted to a cheaper way of running rather than replacing it in total.

To get it looking like new you can get it either cleaned professionally by a company such as ourselves and/or get bits or all of it re-enamelled by a company such as Hytech base in Weston Super Mare in Somerset: AGA Cooker Enamelling . To to get the AGA top done costs about £400 and to get the whole AGA enamelled would be about £1400. You would also have to get someone to dismantle the AGA so that you can send it off to be enamelled.
