'Ultimate Kitchen' includes LCD, of course

This is a combo made for bachelor heaven.

John Lewis

We wish the U.K.'s John Lewis would expand to the States, just so we could keep up with the department store's latest kitchen creations. Last year we were smitten by its fridge-based wine cellar , and now they've done it again.

The "Ultimate Kitchen Combo" lives up to its name as a 4-in-1 system that includes an electric oven, a steam oven, a wall-mounted coffee machine, and a 19-inch LCD TV. Perhaps most impressive of all, this Rube Goldberg-sounding mashup of appliances looks surprisingly uncluttered, resembling some sort of high-tech art gallery.

When all this is taken into account, as BornRich points out, the combined price of $4,500 actually doesn't seem that outrageous. But as a final deal sweetener--especially for guys--we'd recommend that they throw in a game console.
