it wouldn't surprise me if the same company owned both of them. i guess if you have a $5mm house, what's a $40k stove in the big picture. the aga's while expensive are less than the la cornue. haven't shopped them in a while, but figure from $7 to $25k. the price on these isn't so much driven by the cost of manufacturing, but whatever the consumer market will bear. jack the price up, sell fewer units with lower overhead and make more money. it's all about paying for exclusivity. nice business model.
