I think I’m becoming obsessed with stoves and ovens. Let me explain… three weeks ago someone else decided to make dinner. Let me start by saying that such a rare occurrence was met with great enthusiasm, dinner was lovely and I totally appreciate anyone serving me a meal… but I lost my oven in the process. I have a very nice, dual fuel slide-in that probably has more bells and whistles than it should but I love it and have used it happily for about four years, so not too long. It has numerous different modes, timers and settings that can befuddle someone who isn’t familiar – so the obvious choice when confronted with an unfamiliar appliance is to press all and random buttons, right? My oven hasn’t worked since – so many phone calls, so much time on hold, so many tracking numbers for parts coming from the States. Viola! Oven obsession!
Big ones, coloured ones, pretty ones and they all cost more than my car, I’m sure. But a girl can dream can’t she?
I will start with the grand-daddie of all high-end stoves, the Aga.
This glam option is a La Cornue in a solid copper finish with polished copper trim. La Cornue is pretty much comparable to Aga in the prestige oven competition.
Here is another copper option from Bluestar.
This gorgeous stove is a marvel of hidden talents and spaces from EuroChef
These two blue beauties are from Falcon, a part of the AGA group.
You can see the rest of this home on the La Cornue website.
And can we, just for a quick second, sigh over colour?
