The Most Expensive Kitchen Range In The World (and the range hood that ventilates it)

The title of “Most Expensive Kitchen Range In The World” was long held by the Grand Palais 180 from La Cornue’s top-of-the-line Chateau series, tagged at $ 48,000. What do you get for this price? Build quality from one of the oldest ironworks in Europe, a completely unique look, plenty of customization options, and the sheer satisfaction of cooking on the “Ferrari of ranges”. Check out the Grand Palais 180 product page for all the mouth-watering details.

All good things come to an end, however. The Grand Palais has been knocked off the price pedestal by Molteni’s $ 100,000 luxury range. Yes, that would be “one hundred thousand dollars”, your eyes are not deceiving you. Why bother beating the record-holder by a measly couple of thousand dollars, when you can double it? Well done Molteni!

The made-to-order masterpiece is based on Molteni’s Professional 145 Evolution line, and is distributed by Electrolux. It takes 20 workers 500 hours to build each one at Molteni’s original factory in Saint-Uze, France, it weighs almost half a ton, it will last “a lifetime – or longer”, and it looks absolutely fantastic. Options such as gold-plated elements, and USB ports are available. You can even order one with a built-in security system (!), which we find faintly ridiculous, considering the abovementioned 1/2-ton weight… but, de gustibus non est disputandum...

Molteni has been making elite cooking equipment since 1923, and the Molteni name graces some of the most famous kitchens in the world. Alain Ducasse’s “58 Tour Eiffel” restaurant in Paris, as well as Ducasse’s other restaurants around the world, the Dolce & Gabbana “Gold Restaurant” in Milan, the “Antica Corte Pallavicina”, and many more rarefied eateries. The BMW headquarters has one, and so does the Prime Minister of France, Nicolas Sarkozy. If you own one, you’re in good company.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what the range hood is that’s hanging above the $ 100,000 range – that would be our “Symbol” model, shown here in the 48″ island-mount version.

UPDATE: the Symbol is available in several sizes and configurations, from 24″ wall-mount ($1,395.00) to 48″ island-mount ($2,295.00). On display in our showroom (open to the public, Monday-Friday 9AM-6PM) and in stock for immediate shipping.

UPDATE: Broadway Panhandler has a red-and-gold Molteni on display. If you happen to be in New York City, stop by and touch a culinary masterpiece.
