I have never spent much time day dreaming about owning a big, fancy house or an expensive car. As long as I can take a nice vacation from time to time and putter in my garden I’m a happy person. Jewelry isn’t my thing and I don’t have a closet full of expensive shoes. My weakness is high end, super fancy kitchen appliances…the kind that are way beyond my budget but I obsess about nonetheless. I was in Chicago last week and my daughter and SIL took me to the most spectacular appliance store I have ever seen…ABT APPLIANCES in Glenview, Illinois. I am thinking about moving to inner city Portland and they are remodeling their home so all of us were in the mood to look at appliances.
The first thing that completely knocked me off my pins was this spectacular SUB-ZERO 648PROG Side by Side Refrigerator/Freezer. I have had Sub-Zero appliances in the past and love them, and it is the glass door and freezer and refrigerator drawers that grab me on this model. I want this…so bad…but the odds aren’t in my favor at $15,799.25
If this was in my kitchen I could just sit and look at it…and purr like a kitten. Oh man, I love it!
Thermador 24″ Wine Column, 96 bottle capacity, LED lighting, Glass Front…$5,499.00.
Viking Under Counter Refrigerators…$2,795.00 each. Love these units.
In the market for a stove?
This beauty is made by La Cornue, 65″ duel fuel, polished stainless steel and chrome, from their Chateau Series,
a whopping $47,400.00 (price includes shipping..ha).
A smaller version from La Cornue.
I was hyperventilating at this point and didn’t make a note of the price.
Isn’t that blue enamel beautiful?
I love this magnificent beast. I’m thrilled to have a duel fuel range in my kitchen but this one outdoes it by a mile. This range is TRIPLE FUEL: electric ovens, gas cook top and steam with both conventional and convection heat. It comes with stainless steam pans in a dozen sizes. Six burners, plus griddle and grill, warming oven…it rings up at $13,999.00
This Viking 48″ range would look fantastic in my kitchen.
I love the splash of red and the 6 burner continuous top…a mere $12,298.25.
Wolf Pro Stainless Steel Range, 6 burners plus griddle, 2 full size ovens, ball bearing racks…$15,599.00.
Dacor Stainless 48″ Range, $11,248.00.
Kallista by Kohler. 45″ Multiere Single Basin Undermount Sink. 16 Gauge Stainless Steel…$2,895.00.
The faucet is another $2,000.
Blanco 29″x 20″ Stainless Double Bowl Undermount Sink With Racks…$1,620.
I hope you have enjoyed this little look at high end appliances. I consider some of them works of art and dream about having these beautiful objects (even one of them) in my own kitchen. Who knows…it could happen. I put lottery tickets on my shopping list.
