Perhaps the most unusual idea is the range or hob; instead of a fixed range top that takes up 24 or 36 inches of counterspace, Graham uses three plug-in induction portable hobs. So if you just need one element in the morning to make your espresso, that is what you use. If you need three to do a dinner, you pull them all out. Induction units are so energy efficient that they don't need permanent piping or wiring, so why take up all that space when you don't need to?
