When the AGA cast-iron stove was first released in 1935, it took six hours so heat up. That's stayed the same up until today. But the new metal monster takes only eight minutes—and fires up with a touchscreen.
The massive Total Control range, has three (!) ovens (and burners up top), each controllable and independently adjustable via a flip-out oven door touchscreen, or your smartphone, should you wish to get your kitchen prepped while you're still in bed. And despite the modern makeover of the stove's guts, it's retained its early 20th century beauty. Heavy. Sturdy. Industrial. It looks like you could just as easily smelt iron ore inside as whip together a cake. [AGA via BornRich]
