    Incredible looking stoves. Now that I know they exist, how can I live with out one (kidding, but boy that’s seriously beautiful).  I’m perplexed about the fact that the national director of sales chose to show up wearing a sleeveless dress.  Not the most professional of outfits.  (Not that you’re not a very attractive lady who can pull it off – just not the best choice for a vidt many people that so many people will be viewing).

    I really want a french top/Plaque but not for $100k

    convection ? big deal

    No thanks..

    It is a cuisine for the rich but of extreme quality. The price may be a bit inflated, but when you buy a porsche or a ferrari, doesn’t the same thing happen? you are not paying to have something almost unique? I personally appreciate this kitchen like a Ferrari, but I have neither of the two :V

    Way overrated.

    And think . . . . Jesus cooked fish over an open fire. And, He fed souls as well. There are no ovens envolved in partaking of the Bread of Life.

    The stove is designed for not too bright rich people who are too stupid to adjust a pan on the burner in order to get an even heat pattern. Study, practice and skill can, and often does, improve the taste of the food. you cook; as opposed to throwing $100,000 at the problem. A high quality four burner commercial range can be purchased for around $1500.00. This includes the convection oven feature and broiler. As the number of burners increases, the price goes up. The burners range from 13,000 btu to 18,000 btu which is more than adequate for most cooking projects.

    Brad Pitt owns one, how unsurprising. He built a $100 million dollar home with Angelina on his own private lot of land that’s bigger than most football fields. Obscenely rich people and their splurges. Smh.

    2:20 "Who cooks with these? I know Julia Child used to."

    Julia may have had a small La Cornue range at her cottage in France, but at her home in Cambridge she had an American-made Garland commercial range that she and Paul picked up used. That’s the range that’s now on display at the Smithsonian, not some French model.

    I would love to have one of those, and it doesn’t bother me in the least that Brad Pitt has one, but for that woman to characterize custom matching the color of it to an antique pot, as "a great story," is ridiculous. It is trivial story.These two didn’t do a very good job of selling the actual stove, with her coming off as somewhat shallow, and him seeming completely detached, like he didn’t even really want to be there.

    Kris Jenner owns la cornue oven.

  14. ClawsthatCatch on February 20, 2021 at 11:24 pm

    They have cheaper models that are like $8000. I told my boyfriend to get me one of these instead of an engagement ring. This at least we’d get use out of.

    just makes me laugh

  16. pianistajs on February 20, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    For anyone looking, Lacanche does this all with more burner options (as in more than four placed on opposite sides of the range), dual gas ovens (if you want them, whereas La Cornue doesn’t – it’s one of each) and comes in under this over priced "buying for name" range. Just the facts of life.

    When I tell you he has the most thickist Italian accent ever… It’s true 🇮🇹

  18. Jake Webb on February 20, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Dude on the computer at 1:25 looks like he has a nasty ponytail for second until the lady behind him turns 😂😂

    …also. Cool stove.

  19. lonnie romero on February 20, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    You did not sell me on this.. I could give a flying f”* who uses this unless it is a superior stove/oven. “Brad Pitt and I have the snap me oven, so obviously my turkey is not dry”. IDIOTS.

    Hahahahaha this is comedy gold

    Now you buyers of $25 million dollar mansions, this is the range that should be in the kitchen, not a Viking or wolf, period, don’t be fooled, a house of these prices suppose to have a $150,000 stove, not no $12000 stove in them
