If you always walk out of Williams Sonoma empty-handed, we’re right there with you. As gorgeous as the things in that store are, they’re a little on the pricey side.
But if you think a hundred dollars for a baking sheet is too much, wait until you see the items on this list. These kitchen gadgets are so wildly expensive they’ll leave you breathless. Some of them you’d quite literally have to refinance your mortgage to afford. Tell us: if you had the money, would you buy any of these things?
Blendtec Stealth Blender
Being touted as the quietest blender to hit the market, the Blendtec Stealth Blender has six blend cycles and a USB interface so you can upload up to 36 different customizable blending programs. Can you believe that? Well, try to believe this: the Blendtec Stealth Blender costs $2,330.
Sub-Zero Wolf Freezer Drawer
Is your freezer simply not big enough? Why not have freezers built directly into your kitchen drawers? That’s what Wolf offers, to the tune of $4,250 a pop.
Dacor Discovery Wine Station
When opening a bottle of wine gets a little too blasé for you, try the Dacor Discovery Wine Station. It’s a refrigerated chest that holds four wine bottles at the perfect temperature and dispenses each, so there’s no more of that bothersome pouring to do. How much is it? Just $5,649 or so.
MUGNAINI WOOD-FIRED PIZZA OVEN
This one is actually pretty cool, and we guarantee that if you own your own wood-fired pizza oven, you will become the Joneses everybody else is trying to keep up with. If you can afford $6,500 to $9,500 to set this kind of standard, we say go for it.
RACHIELE’S EVOLUTION COPPER SINK
This is more than just a sink: it’s a kitchen workstation so efficient that its designer claims you can stop using your countertops for meal preparation. It’s also roughly the price of a used car, with the top models coming in at around $8,000.
Hammacher Double Espresso Machine
We love coffee, there’s no denying it. The Hammacher Double Espresso Machine looks like something from a steampunk novel, with its fantastic copper dome topped with an ornate eagle. Is it wrong to pay $8,000 for the perfect cup of Joe?
La Cornue Gas Rotisserie
Feel like throwing a few chickens on the spit for supper? Then get yourself the La Cornue Gas Rotisserie. For a mere $10,000, it will turn, roast and baste those birds to perfection.
MENEGHINI ARREDAMENTI REFRIGERATOR
This Italian refrigerator looks like something that belongs in the captain’s quarters aboard a luxury ship. Divided into two wide doors flanking a row of drawers down the center that has circular, boat-like windows, this refrigerator goes for an astounding $41,000.
La Cornue Grand Palais Stove
Have you caught your breath yet? Get ready to lose it again. The La Cornue Grand Palais stove has six cooktop ranges, a lava rock grill, a convection oven, a traditional oven and two electric plates, all for the rock-bottom price of $47,300.
We bet you didn’t expect a corkscrew to be at the top of this list, did you? Made of aviation titanium, the Sveid corkscrew is customizable to have such touches as a platinum lever and gold cast hinges. Its price? A staggering, jaw-dropping, unbelievable $63,000.
This list goes to prove that there is no limit on how much you can pay for something. If you want to pay $20K for a spatula, we’re pretty sure there’s a way to do it. Then again, you might be just like us: determined to shop for the lowest price while vicariously enjoying how much money the other half is willing to spend.
