Homebodies dream that they too can be that overnight sensation that millions admire, and this ambition might be Ione reason the gastronomical marketplace is flourishing with countless kitchen tools and appliances that promise to make that aspiration come true: “If I only had the right implement, I know I could absolutely impress that celebrity chef judge … or at least my friends.”
Armed with this belief, incessant fledgling cooks flock to spend anything to acquire that edge and become the next rock star chef — even if it’s only in their own home for the neighbours who’ve been invited over for the weekend dinner performance.

For the second year, Dolce Gabbana’s Italian art is adorning household gadgets, from small ones right up to major appliances made by the Italian manufacturer SMEG: high fashion and art meets kitchen. What was once simply the plain appliance of no consequence has transitioned to being the headliner in the home, with collectable art work embellishing the special edition refrigerator FAB28 with “Sicilian Folklore” art (only 100 of these were made). In addition to looking resplendent, the equipment is eco-friendly and safer for the environment, so you can be an earth hero and remain ultra-chic at the same time.
