The Gaggenau BL 253 Lift Oven ($3,000+) is the hoopty of the appliance world that was originally released back in 2007. Instead of forcing cooks to deal with opening doors and reaching into an oven’s heated core, this appliance features a LiftMatic glass ceramic base which lowers down from the oven. This allows users to place the food on the base and then automatically raise the food into the cooking cavity. It may sound ridiculous (in a great way), but since heat rises, the oven can successfully maintain desired temperatures with the lift open and loses barely any energy. Of course, crazy design doesn’t come cheap. Not only is this model extremely hard to find, but it’ll also cost you a whopping $3,000 or more to bring it home. Then again, that’s a small price to pay to ensure your kitchen appliances wow onlookers as much as the Spreewells on your ride.
