The first thing the television host used her brand-new customized Lacanche stove to make was a pan full of pistachio meringues
Ina Garten’s latest piece of hardware is seriously swoon-worthy. The Food Network host shared a photo of a stunning new Lacanche stove nestled into her New York City apartment last week, posting excitedly about the possibilities the stovetop and oven would bring. “First day cooking on my new @lacanche_us range—so much fun!! #NYC #newapartment,” she captioned the shot. The black-and-brass stove matches perfectly with her metal and copper pans hanging above the range, and the sleek design is seemingly equally functional: The next day, Garten posted a photo of a pan full of pistachio meringues. “First thing out of the oven,” she wrote.
This Lacanche model, which is only produced in small quantities, costs $15,500; other A-list celebrities who have shelled out the big bucks for the standard-setting stove include Top Chef’s Padma Lakshmi and iconic restauranteur Jean-Georges Vongerichten. It can take up to four months to build made-to-order stoves like Garten’s, and cost thousands of dollars to ship, according to Lacanche’s website.
