Classy Kitchens

Are you a self-proclaimed foodie who spends more time than you’d ever admit to scouring sites like Pinterest & Houzz ogling photos of luxury kitchens?  You’re not alone!  To feed your addiction, we’ve perused the World Wide Web in search of the most unique and expensive kitchen features available today.  (And if, by chance, you win the lottery and find yourself such a kitchen like this—we’re inviting ourselves over for dinner!)

Turbo Chef Double Oven: This oven makes a convection oven look like a crockpot; the manufacturer’s website claims cooking times of 15 times faster than a conventional oven.  This means that a 12 pound turkey can bake in 42 minutes, as opposed to 4 hours!  The ovens come in fun colors such as orange and green.  Suggested Price: $7,895

Sub-Zero PRO 48 Refrigerator: The PRO 48 is a 48″ side-by-side refrigerator.  It’s comprised of 100% steel and unlike standard refrigerators; it has separate sets of compressors and evaporators for the refrigerator and freezer.  This deters odor transfer and keeps your foods fresher longer.  The refrigerator’s doors close on their own and the interior has LED lighting.  You have your choice between either a solid steel face or glass window.  Suggested Price: $15,970

Skybar Wine Preservation & Serving System: This device allows you to display 3 uncorked bottles of wine that are each chilled to the temperature you desire.  Avoid the hassle of removing each bottle of wine and pouring by simply pressing the button for the wine chamber you wish to drink.  Wines are vacuum sealed and can be stored for up to 10 days.  Suggested Price: $995.99

Miele LaPerla II Diswasher: Much like today’s gaming systems, this dishwasher can be updated by a technician with their laptop computer.  Updates can reflect a new dishwashing detergent or modify the amount of electricity or water the appliance uses.  You can select from 11 different wash cycles that take into account the material of flatware you’re washing.  A sensor inside the dishwasher can tell how dirty your dishes are and adjusts the number of times within a cycle the dishwater is changed.  The Drying Plus feature opens the door automatically at the end of the cycle.  Suggested Price: $2,149

Miele Miele CVA 4066 Espresso Machine: This machine allows you to brew a premium cup of espresso, cappuccino, latte or black coffee.  It comes with a plumbed in water connection and coffee bean grinder.  It prompts you when beans and water are getting low and comes with its own frothing system with integrated milk tank.  Suggested Price: $4061.53

Pink Swarovski Encrusted KitchenAid Mixer: Bejeweled with over 20,000 Swarovski hot pink crystals, this appliance are sure to be a show stopper.  Suggested Price: $1631.02
