The most critical room in any American home is the kitchen. It’s the central gathering area when people come over and is always the place where people want to hang out.

The open kitchen floor plan has became a showcase for modernity and designers and architects are constantly investing more in creative ways of upgrading our kitchen lifestyle. Kitchens have even become the room that is now viewed as a symbol of status in our society and homes. So it’s no surprise that people can pour an insane amount of money into their kitchens, from the decorative designs to the appliances.

We did the research and created a buyers guide for all of the essentials that anyone would need for stocking a kitchen. But what about something more?

Have you ever wondered if money was simply no object, then what are some of the most expensive kitchen items on the market today? The most luxurious things that money could buy?

We decided to find out, and luxury definitely comes at a cost.

We found items with price tags well north of $10,000, with some even peaking at an insane $70,000! And we’re not just talking prices for custom renovations or things like that. No, those hefty¬† prices are for single item products that are available for retail.

When it comes to the kitchen, nothing is too expensive (or is it?). In fact, upscale and exorbitant price tags can exist for almost any item in the kitchen, from high end appliances to seemingly simple, small utensils.

Here are the top expensive kitchen items that we all wish we could afford:

Skybar Wine Preservation & Serving System: $1,000
