A manufacturer has designed the most expensive domestic kitchen ever created with a jaw dropping price of up to £250,000.The Electrolux Grand Cuisine has been designed for aspiring Masterchefs, and intends to ride on the wave of successful cooking programmes that currently dominate television.

 

 

The Grand Cuisine includes a gas hob or a ceramic-style sear hob, and a bespoke ventilation system. The Daily Mail reports that a surround induction zone heater allows you to stir fry effectively, thanks to an even distribution of heat across the pan.  

 

But that’s not the end of it. After shelling out for all of that, you will still have to buy worktops, drawers, units, flooring, taps and tiling separately. It consists of a range of ten bespoke products designed for the super-rich who want to use the same professional equipment that chefs like Heston Blumenthal, Ferran Adria and Tom Aitkens employ. Even the very cheapest kitchens within the range start at £72,000.

 

The Electrolux selection of products includes vacuum packers, blast chillers and an intelligent oven complete with a hard drive. The design team led by Henrik Otto believes they have developed the ultimate kitchen. 

 

The centerpiece of the product range is a Molteni stove which costs between £18,000 and £160,000 by itself. The huge variation in prices is justified given the equipment is all custom made. 

 

Further, nine other products within the range will cost another £77,500. The set of nine products includes a £5,300 vacuum sealer which allows aspiring star chefs to ‘sous vide’ their food, or in layman’s terms, cook at low temperatures in order to keep the juices intact and the food tender.

 

The Molteni stove even has an in-built security system installed to fend off potential thieves who could attempt to shift the half tonne unit. It has a touch screen panel that allows the user to adjust the temperature to the nearest degree, and the humidity setting to the nearest percent. Users will even be able to plug in a memory stick, which knows how to cook specific dishes.
