We hear this week that TV Chef Gordon Ramsay is splashing out on a brand new kitchen for his south west London home.
The existing £500,000 kitchen, which was installed just a few years, is getting a major overhaul.
The builders are already hard at work, and the word on the street is that he’s invested £67,000 on a Rorgue cooker. Very nice!
An insider revealed “Gordon is having the technology he uses in his Michelin-starred restaurant put into his own home. That includes the latest gizmos, including a water bath to heat sauces gently and a special steam oven. It has to be the most plush home kitchen in the country.”
We just hope we get an invitation to dinner sometime!
Next week Electrolux will hold it’s annual design competition final – 100% Design – where industrial design students from all over the world are challenged to come up with, innovative ideas for compact homes of 2050.
The competition, currently in it’s seventh year, attracted over 1,300 entries.
We particularly like the ‘Elements Modular Kitchen’ by US entrant Matthew Gilbridge. The wall mounted appliance provides flexible modes of cooking, as well as refrigeration, air conditioning, lighting and environmental design.
The appliance even draws power wirelessly and is supplemented by solar energy.
We think it looks great, but you can’t beat a traditional kitchen!
Do you ever find yourself watching TV and think “Ooh I love that kitchen, I wonder where they got it?”
If you tune in to ITV’s This Morning you’ll see they have a fantastic new kitchen, courtesy of Magnet!
The kitchen is an integral part of the show and now reflects the warm and sparkly personalities of the presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.
The kitchen is the Crème Lineaire from the purely Magnet range, which was chosen for its feminine curves and sleek gloss finish. The soft cream looks great on camera and the simple lines are elegant and stylish. The bright raspberry splashbacks will really pop and the stunning Elica Star cooker hoods will provide a touch of glamour.
The kitchen also features some top of the range appliances, including a Rangemaster fridge freezer and range cooker, NEFF wine cooler, NEFF oven, microwave and hob. An environmental element is also being featured with the use of eco worktops made from recycled materials.
We can’t wait to see some of the world’s top celebrity chefs cooking up a storm in the Magnet kitchen live on ITV1 everyday!
A high-tec kitchen
now could be a thing of the past in as little as ten years!
Your worktop could be intelligent enough to give you advice on your recipe choices and how to cook dishes! Intel is suggesting that kitchen software will be the next big thing in computing but – I hear you cry – kitchens are already so busy!
However, it could be a huge benefit – imagine having self cleaning surfaces and 3-D food printers which can create meals from their constituent molecules? Life becomes easier.
This Intel worktop is called the Oasis and could transform your kitchen into just that. The touchscreen is projected rather than built in so can detect gestures and register the commands you give it.
There’s also talk of integrating gaming and the internet so your kitchen surface could end up talking you through cooking dinner with a holographic Gordon Ramsey whilst ensuring you’re entirely up to date with what’s happening on Facebook – fabulous.
