Wealthy homeowners are dropping nearly $40,000 on luxury stoves that won't arrive for months. It's a symptom of a broader appliance shortage hampering homeowners and industry insiders alike.

While demand for appliances amid a home improvement boom is partially to blame, external factors are also making it difficult to buy new appliances.



People are stupid.

Like the old song goes —- “God is great, beer is good - and people are crazy”.

Plus - some are quite well off apparently!

I wonder how many of them actually know how to use it for what it's designed for? That's a commercial grade setup dressed up to "look pretty".
I would like to have that big stovetop with 4 or 6 heavy duty burners during canning season, but mine would be flat black or whatever costs the least.

Somewhere on a cooking forum, there is a discussion of stupid people ordering tractors that cost 40k and waiting 6 months for delivery. For a TRACTOR! o_O

I grew up with nothing but.....my career introduced me to a bunch of rich people, I mean really rich, not billions but hundreds of millions.

Shocking the amount of wealth there is out there.

Decades ago, a friend bought a house that came with high-end commercial appliances. One of them broke and the repair cost $5000.

A $40K stove had better - prepare, cook, serve by voice command.
