Go into anyone’s kitchen and you will find that they have a modest selection of gadgets that they could not live without. Microwaves for example are great for helping to defrost stuff or even to make a bowl of porridge in the morning, and toasters enable us to get our bread just the way we like it without having to stand over a grill and make sure our bread doesn’t get incinerated.
Some people might even have gadgets like electric tin openers, multi-purpose blenders and graters. Normally we don’t expect to pay vast sums of money for these gadgets, but for the discerning millionaire who likes to have the very best of everything, they are willing to pay loads of money for all sorts of interesting and perhaps downright odd gadgets.
Here are 7 of the most expensive kitchen gadgets!
NEFF Series 5 C-67P70N3-GB Combination Microwave (£1,079)
The built-in NEFF Series 5 C-67P70N3-GB combination microwave oven is made of stainless steel and boasts more than 70 automatic programmes, multifunctional and multi-level cooking options. £1,079 buys you a premium-brand, high-quality product that looks great and works very well in any kitchen.
Miele G5620 SC Dishwasher (£1,119)
Dishwashers make light work of cleaning your cutlery, dishes, glasses and cups. But why buy any run of the mill dishwasher when you could spend £1,119 on this stylish and modern looking machine!
German appliance manufacturer Miele specialises in high-end domestic appliances and the G5620 SC dishwasher is certainly up there with the best of the best in the dishwasher world. It sports an A+++ energy efficiency rating, and the price even includes delivery, fitting of your new Miele and disposal of your old dishwasher.
Blendtec Stealth Blender (£1,254)
The Blendtec Stealth Blender is perhaps one of the quietest blenders on the market today, and offers an impressive array of features such as a 2.2kW motor, a blue LED illuminated control touch panel, and the ability to upload a wide variety of pre-designed and custom blend cycles to the unit via the USB interface. Definitely worth the £1,254 asking price!
Siemens Espresso Coffee Machine (£1,279)
The very sleek Siemens IQ-700 espresso machine can be bought for just £1,279! Backed by a manufacturer’s 2 year warranty, you can sleep well at night knowing that you have bought an espresso machine which is covered by a reliable and extensive support network in case it decides to stop working one day.
In case you were wondering, the Gastrovac is not some kind of kitchen-specific vacuum cleaner used on granite tiles, but it is a compact kitchen appliance which is used for cooking and frying food in a vacuum.
An artificial low pressure will reduce overall cooking time and its makers say that it helps to keep the flavour and texture of food as it should be. Is it worth the £3,420? I’ll let you be the judge of that.
Mugnaini Wood-Fired Pizza Oven (£4,154)
Fed up of buying mediocre pizzas from your local takeaway joint? Then why don’t you make a pizza exactly how you want it and cook it with an authentic Italian Mugnaini Wood-Fired Pizza Oven. There are a variety of styles and features on offers, and prices start from £4,154.
The Corner Fridge (£4,900)
Fridge-freezers are normally square appliances, which can be kind of annoying if you only have a corner to slot one in. Luckily, there’s a £4,900 solution to this problem – the stainless-steel Corner Fridge! This work of art boasts a 1,300 litre capacity and is a bit like the Tardis of the refrigerator world – looks small on the outside but is massive on the inside!
