For passionate home cooks, the fantasy of cooking in a gorgeous, spacious kitchen with top-notch equipment is one that is often provoked by flipping through the pages of Architectural Digest or watching a cooking show. Whether it’s a French country-style kitchen with quaint cabinets or a sleek, modern kitchen that occupies the day dream, these ideal work spaces come at a high cost.

After a brief discussion of what a dream kitchen would actually cost, The Daily Meal decided to take a look at what one ridiculously expensive kitchen would amount to. Of course, this is not a complete collection of equipment that would necessarily match or go together, but these are some of the priciest appliances and tools that we could find.

We used Yahoo! Shopping to compare prices for equipment for the home cook and some crowd-sourcing information from Facebook fans, and the results revealed a variety of gorgeous, high-tech, and almost magical-seeming equipment. A gorgeous La Cornue island handmade outside of Paris for $100,000? Yes please. A refrigerator with a touch screen and the ability to tell you when food is going bad? Sure, why not.

Of course, prices are subject to variations and sales, though probably not on the La Cornue products. And there might be even more ludicrously expensive kitchen parts out there (like this $4 million stove), but here’s a sample of what your dream kitchen could cost.

From a built-in rotisserie to dishwashers that can wash Riedel wine glasses, browse through the bits and pieces we wish were in our kitchen.

DIY VS. BUY: Potato Chips



This is as insane as the recently sold all time record of $20 mil paid for the painting"The Scream". Do the people that buy these things really use them or do they hire high priced famous chefs to do it for them and fake that it was all "home cooked"?
