    Would you like your eyebrows seared or just your wallet up in flames?

    is it me, or does the stainless on those doors look kinda flimsy for what I assume is a 2000+ stove?

  3. sketchy says:

    Good way to handle it, though. Honest, direct, no ‘taking it seriously’, just a real action to fix the problem.

    I don’t see what the big deal is here, this is what is known as the “money shot” in kitchen porn.

    All this time I have been bending over like some sucker to light my cigarette on the stove. Time to get one of these fancy cigarette light’n stoves.

    looks like it’s also a gas stove (by the burners), how nice!

    Man, Americans need to toughen up. When I was a kid we had to climb up the to the top of Mt. St. Helen, and wait for some lava to shoot up to cook our dinner. Then we had to walk up the volcano again to get back, with 3rd degree burns.

    Feature, not a bug!!!

    This looks like a commercial range vs a consumer one. I guess the rich consumers would buy it.

    Looks like “There is no Dana, only Zuul!” has moved to the oven from the fridge.

    Yikes! Gives a whole new meaning to flambe!

    I have a big yellow and chrome Philco from the fifties. It came with my house. It works great and the oven is big enough to roast an ox. The only thing I don’t like about it is it’s electric. Hard to regulate the heat.

    That’s cool that they are offering the repairs.

    Oh noes, I better go call that number to get my $8,000 stove fixed…oh, wait, I own a $400’s all white. But it has…get this….a digital clock!

    I’ve heard that Sub-Zero refrigerators are about as unreliable and as expensive to fix as Wolf ranges, so I suppose it’s not a surprise to find them both on the same website.

    Wait…if you left the freezer door open on your Sub-Zero refrigerator, would it put out the flames shooting from your Wolf range?

    Flames, flames on the side of my face…

  18. RageTowers says:

    I think more products should shoot flames.

    Would make the world a lot more exciting..
