Avanti CK30B-1: Turducken of ranges

The Avanti CK30B-1 Compact Kitchen with Refrigerator offers a complete kitchen in the same amount of space as used by a standard oven range.

A solution for small spaces. Avanti

The endless customization options available for kitchens assures you that no matter the preference, there is an option available--sometimes you just have to look a little harder for it. Design choices do not have to be all about shiny chrome and stainless steel when it comes to looking for ways to outfit the hearth. Sometimes, it's not a matter of elegance at all; it could be all about convenience. And sometimes that means stuffing as many major appliances into one space as possible.

Combining a sink, a refrigerator, and a stovetop into one unit, the Avanti CK30B-1 Compact Kitchen offers a true-all-in-one solution for those who seek the ultimate combination appliance. Measuring 30 inches across by 40 inches tall by 25.25 inches deep (with the backguard), the equipment is a standard size, and is meant to fit squarely into the space occupied by a current range.

It takes a special situation to install an appliance of this type, but clearly this one is designed for small spaces--studio apartments and RVs being two obvious choices. If you've ever looked at your oven and wished the space could be used for something else, then this is the appliance for you. At the very least, it is proof that kitchens truly are endlessly customizable.
