Did any of you see this range on Yahoo? It's a Molteni, which I had heard of on here before, but have no idea they could cost this much!!

Wow. I would like to see the rest of the kitchen, for the person who could actually afford a range that expensive!

I can't even imagine. Does it spit out diamonds every time you open the door?

That would be a nice upgrade from my 20" Tappan stove

RE: $100,000 Range

I did see it in the newspaper and they said that Electrolux is the parent company. So crazy!

When I see a Molteni, it reminds me of the range in the animated movie, Ratatouille. They have beautiful multiple copper ranges in that kitchen.

I suppose for the demographic, that it would be like a lot of people buying a Wolf, or large Viking, maybe not even. I don't see the point of a $100K range, but it's all relative I guess, I don't have a $300K car either. (I would take the car though before the range).

Over on the Appliance Forum, one of our own was considering buying one, and was struggling with the idea. Interesting read.

Thanks, Angie. Wow! I do remember reading that now. I wonder if she ever got one?

This is my idea of a $100,000.00 range :)

It looks like they are basing the look on a La Cornue.

Um, where are the rest of the burners?

RE: $100,000 Range

The person interested in Molteni in "Making a Move Toward Molteni" ended up with an Aga cooker due to cost and what appeared to her potentially daunting service issues. Very few residential Molteni ranges in Canada and most in restaurants serviced by companies that only work in commerical venues.

Molteni is not basing its look on La Cornue.

Molteni was founded in 1923 and La Cornue in 1908 but both have traditional French style.
