This freestanding accessory for the Impressa Z-series espresso machines features a convection heating system that quickly brings cups to the optimal serving temperature. Constructed largely of frosted glass with sculptural lines, it holds up to 24 espresso cups or 16 coffee cups. 7 1/2″ x 16″ x 13 3/4″ high. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive. 
Price tag: $999.95

It is a fucking cup warmer.  Do you know what you can do with $999.95?  A LOT!  And why in the hell do they have it priced this way?  Do they think that if they put $1000 people wouldn’t buy it because it is too expensive?  

Are they trying to go with the same psychology of pricing your home to sell?  No don’t put 200,000 ask for 199,900 – it will sell quicker….

Dodo’s butt would warm it up quicker than this thing although I don’t think 24 espresso cups would fit…I will try it though for $999.95.

By the way – the espresso coffemaker is only $3599.  So for a total of, let me see here, a fucking lot – you can make a cup of coffee AND warm your mug.

    I’d say it’s $9.95 for the heating element and $990.00 in ‘structural elements’ and broohaha.

    I say you sell Dodo’s butt for the same purpose and price. Ebay it!

    also, it looks like a weird cheese grater.
