One of the most expensive appliances ever made is the Electrolux oven range retailing for $100,000, which was made to reach the luxury foodie market, according to ABC News. Gourmet foodies and luxury homeowners need appliances that fit their lifestyle. But with so many high-end options hitting the market, it can be difficult to decide which products suit your luxury lifestyle. Here are five of the best luxury home appliances to consider.
GE Cafe Series Oven
The GE Cafe Series oven offers restaurant-inspired cooking with french door ovens. Control the oven from your smartphone when you’re at the neighbors or want to preheat the oven on your way home. Bake your desserts evenly with warm air blowing from the top and sides. One of the most coveted features of this luxury oven is the ability to cook an entire meal at once in this oversized oven. The GE Cafe Series is also self-cleaning, so you can skip scrubbing the interior.
GE appliances come with a limited manufacturer’s warranty. Even though most appliances come with a warranty, they don’t always offer 24-hour support or service. An option like Total Protect helps you file a claim and send out a local, qualified technician to fix your luxury appliances.
