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 , 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.
