They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach...and it doesn't hurt when Nigella Lawson is the one doing the cooking. The British celeb cook was also kind enough to steer us over to checking out an absolutely stunning line of refrigerators from Meneghini that are self described as the "ultimate", and description we're not apt to disagree with upon inspecting the rest of their line...
Meneghini refrigerators and freezers are best described as Italian Antique Modern in aesthetics, with brass handles and hinges, glass shelving, and various other pleasing details like portholes and clawfoot legs to distinguish themselves from their utilitarian counterparts. Definitely not dowdy, but a very sophisticated and decor friendly fridge with finishes available in aged cherry wood and walnut, Lebanese cedar, mahogany, pine and chestnut finish that would compliment either a traditional or modern kitchen. Lacquered wood versions are offered in a dizzying 500 satin colour finishes, as well as white for those of you who don't like to rock the boat.
We're set upon purchasing a Mia fridge/freezer in yellow when our lottery boat comes to harbour and we can fathom spending $10k on a fridge. At that cost, we'd consider it the start of a family heirloom to pass along to generations; at least the design is worthy of the designation.
The Meneghini refrigerators were originally inspired by "La Ghiacciaia" (Italian for "Icebox"), with the interior mechanics designed and manufactured by Liebherr, a premium German refrigerator manufacturer. It's akin to purchasing an Italian styled Ferrari with an Audi engine inside!
