He’s now the spiky-topped face of the Food Network, but Guy Fieri still lives in the 1,700 square foot home he bought 14 years ago—only now it’s a 3,900 square foot home, which includes a 900 square foot kitchen. Guy’s dad built the kitchen over the course of a year.
The kitchen features his-n-hers refrigerators, a mega burner capable of firing up a 20-gallon jambalaya pot, a 27,500 BTU gas wok burner, a counter made from reclaimed barn wood, and a collection of memorabilia from Guy’s TV travels.
One of the coolest features of this kitchen is the hospital-style foot pedals to operate the kitchen faucet hands-free—“Nothing’s worse than touching a faucet with some nasty raw chicken on your hands,” he told Food Network Magazine.
