With the Aga Total Control ($15,500), you can indulge in old-fashioned cooking "without the inconvenience of waiting for anything, ever." While Aga's cast-iron kitchen ranges are considered by many foodies to be unparalleled for slow-cooking meats and casseroles, they've been derided for taking up to six hours to heat up. The "new model of the cult-favorite cooker will change that." State-of-the-art electric heating elements in the iron doors and walls allow it to heat up in just eight minutes. The stove is controlled by a hidden touch screen or a remote. Source: Wired.com
