ith 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 stove is controlled by a hidden touch screen or a remote. Source: Wired.com
