"Wealthy Americans can purchase an expensive, “old-fashioned” cast-iron stove, but they cannot buy the experience it is intended to conjure: a cozy kitchen filled with the scents and signs of a person devoted to the domestic satisfaction of those who share a home." -- Very pointed article on the rise of "envy kitchens" that nobody actually cooks in, and the American obsession with gagetry that masks our chaotic, unbalanced lives. I personally would rather have less money to spend and more time to hang out over my plain old no-name stove, thanks.
