Recently, Dwell clued us in to an interesting proposition. German appliance maker Gaggenau is pursuing the youth market, offering a significant cost savings with a suite of five stainless-steel appliances for $15,000, which is substantially less than what you would pay if you purchased the elements individually (a 23 percent savings). What do you get? A 30-inch convection oven (see our earlier story on this product here), a 36-inch-wide refrigerator, a 36-inch cooktop (gas or electric) with ventilation hood, and a 24-inch-wide dishwasher. Go to to locate a dealer.
