Today I cleaned a two oven AGA cooker that had been bought by the owner 35 years ago for the princely sum of £400. Apparently it was cheaper as there was a problem with the towel rail on the front. It took me about 3 hours to clean it; this is longer than usual as it was very dirty. In fact the owner told me that it hadn't been cleaned since new. The inside of the doors and the simmering top plate lid were particularly thick in carbonised grease.
For the dirty ones it just means a lot more effort is required in getting off the grease and burnt on carbon. I managed to get it all off and it looked very shiny and sparkling when I had finished.Google+
