An electric Aga? What’s the point of that, then?
"More and more London households are turning into â€œTwo Agaâ€ families according to William McGrath, chief executive of the stoves company. He put the popularity of the unit down to the rise of the electric Aga, which 10 years ago made up just 5% of the company's sales. Today they comprise more than half. "People can now programme their stoves so as the one in the basement kitchen in Knightsbridge goes off on Friday lunchtime the one in the cottage on the coast comes on in time to heat up the house for the weekend,â€ said McGrath."
