While I was reading the Bilbury Chronicles books, the author kept referring to an Aga cooker and I had no idea what it was, for sure, but I assumed it was something like an old-fashioned stove. Well, I was close. Nowadays they are a bit more modern because no wood is required as the heat source, but THIS is what I'm asking for for my birthday this year. Hands down, I wish I'd known about these things 40 years ago. I can't think of anything more handy except possibly the stove my gramma had (at the farm). Hers had only two ovens but they were bigger, and the burners that had to be lifted off with a handle (very unhandy by today's standards), BUT it also had a deep well in the back (in which she always had some sort of soup cooking) and it also had a "shelf" across the top of the back of the stove where the heat automatically vented itself out, and she would keep bread warm up there (or baked potatoes and the like) until the men came inside to eat.

Take a look at this AGA though and watch the explanatory 4 min vid and you'll see why I'm excited to have one.

Some photos with different stoves. **Oh crap, you'll have to go down to the bottom of the page on the right hand side and click the link where it says something like "continue to the next page": http://www.houzz.com/aga-stove
