see here - Lacanche cooker

I have no idea what numbers of people I would need to be feeding with untold and unimagined culinary delights to ever need such a beast, but by gum it's gorgeous.

Want. Want it NOW! Although it's probably the same size as my entire kitchen

MadBadAndWieldingAnAxe · 01/11/2009 21:30

'Tis indeed a thing of beauty. But also bigger than my car.

CybilCybilCybil · 01/11/2009 21:30

It's more than the price of my entire kitchen

Meglet · 01/11/2009 21:32

It's bigger than my kitchen.

TheWheelsOnTheBusHaveFallenOff · 01/11/2009 21:33

oh but I am in love. do you think spending my entire kitchen make-over budget on this would be silly?

a fine beast of a cooker, but surely porn costs a lot less?

stealthsquiggle · 01/11/2009 21:36

If you were to blow the entire budget on it. you might come to regret the complete lack of cupboards/sink/lights at some stage, I feel.

It' not the biggest I have seen - did anyone else see that episode of Grand Designs where idiot couple had a £35K 'cooking centre' - when they did Grand Designs revisited it was clear that it had only ever been used by visiting caterers warming stuff up.

stealthsquiggle · 01/11/2009 21:42

It was this house although it doesn't give details of the cooker - I remember it because I found the couple so annoying...

TheWheelsOnTheBusHaveFallenOff · 01/11/2009 21:42

were they the couple who had spent about 5 grand on a tap?! now that was silly. I feel more justified already.

no cupboards = minimal chic surely?

Is very lovely but not sure about the blue. Also difficult with dual fuel in leccy only household. wouldn't let that put me off though

stealthsquiggle · 01/11/2009 21:45

No cupboards also = nowhere to keep stuff = anything but chic minimalism (in our house, at least - DD's favourite answer to "where is..." is "in a pile, Mummy")

£5K on a tap is easier than you would think - even bog-standard ones can be £300+ (our was not quite four figures, but close - DH chose it )

LordVetinarisApprentice · 01/11/2009 21:45

It is a beauty. I have to admit to lusting after an aga. However my environmentally friendly hat is wedged on too hard! (the fact that we couldn't afford/fit one in is irrelevant)

WickedWitchSouthWest · 01/11/2009 21:45

haha stealth that was a brilliant episode. They were complete twats! I seem to recall that they had to pull a wall down that they built illegally? Or am I confused?

LordVetinarisApprentice · 01/11/2009 21:48

LOL Squiggle, I like 'The gym has a glass roof - retractable, for exercising under the stars' - thank goodness for that, you wouldn't want to exercise under a roof like the plebs

Hassled · 01/11/2009 21:50

I have to have that cooker. I may need to sell a child, but I have too many anyway...

stealthsquiggle · 01/11/2009 21:54

Yes WickedWitch, that was the one!

LordVetinarisApprentice · 01/11/2009 21:54

totally worth it hassled.

stealthsquiggle · 01/11/2009 21:56

After all, hassled, you can always produce a replacement child - harder to replace a cooker

What is the market like for secondhand children nowadays? Can you really get that much for them ?

Hassled · 01/11/2009 21:58

Sadly my reproductive days are over. I may need to rethink. What do you reckon a striking, exceptionally long, tabby cat goes for these days?

stealthsquiggle · 01/11/2009 22:03

PMSL at 'exceptionally long'

TheWheelsOnTheBusHaveFallenOff · 01/11/2009 22:08

oh but it could be minimalist as I wouldn't be able to afford to eat anyway if I bought it so no food in piles or nasty plates and bowls messing the place up. added advantage would be that the beauteous cooker would never be sullied with actual food and could just be admired in original state forever...

OP posts:
WickedWitchSouthWest · 01/11/2009 22:09

oh wheels, that's the point exactly! Why would you ruin something so beautiful by making it actually work?

sabire · 02/11/2009 22:19

Oh lovely!

I like a nice cooker.

I've got one of these:
here in black. It's the business.

Shame it looks like a peacock on a dunghill in my hideous kitchen (all of the other furniture comes from a skip or from Ikea).

HuwEdwards · 02/11/2009 22:23

Couldn't justify the £££ but bugger me backwards, it is gorgeous

cornsilkwearscorsets · 02/11/2009 22:27

That's gorgeous and so is your cooker Sabire.
