Turn your kitchen into a disco

A crystal ball for a range hood--go figure

As every worthy domestic god or goddess knows, kitchen appliances are everything. And they must be as fashionable as they are practical.

Alas, few companies truly understand this aesthetic--but, thankfully, D.R. Cooker is one of them. The latest display of the appliance designer's creative prowess is the crystal ball range hood. The look of this "remote-controlled extractor hood" is surprisingly versatile: As Appliancist points out, it can be interpreted as a disco ball or a chandelier, making it appropriate for a kegger or a cotillion. Our take: It would be the perfect companion to this designer washing machine.
