This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
The whole package file size has been reduced from 6.12MB to 4.78MB. In addition, the counter has been fixed for recolourists.

You MUST delete the old files manually before extracting these files into your downloads folder. They are easy to find: sort the folder by file name and scroll down to 'simt-gourmet....' and delete all of these files.

Please note that because there are so many display items in the counters (meaning a fairly high poly count) that I have also produced alongside these a plain-fronted version that don't demand so much from your system.

(1) GOURMET Kitchen Set

(2)The set includes: counter, counter-fulldoors, counter-noglass, cooker, cooker hood, dishwasher, espresso maker, food mixer, fridge, counter-island link, island, island stool, microwave, sink, tall counter-appliance hutch, tall counter-appliance hutch-no glass, trash compactor, wall cabinet corner, wall cabinet, wallcase-pans, wallcase-racks.

(3)The objects are base-game compliant.

(4)These objects are compatible with all EPs to date.

(5)A collection icon is included to find the set easily in-game.

(6)You may recolour (no permission required) and post at any site but you must include a link to the meshes here at MTS2.

(7)You may include these meshes in uploaded lots at any web site.

(8) Poly / Vertice count:
counter: 359-1154 / 555-1567
counter-fulldoors: 359-1044 / 555-1367
counter-noglass: 336-358 / 509-559
cooker: 270 / 397

dishwasher: 690 / 742

fridge: 1516 / 2405
counter-island link: 531 / 633
island: 1022 / 1202
island stool: 768 / 476

wall cabinet corner: 128 / 251
wall cabinet: 132 / 236
wallcase-pans: 1016 / 1382

I've actually been slowly working away at these sets for a few months now, on and off. I can do a medium-sized kitchen in one day...but I think everyone will have had kitchen-set-overload by now!

Thank you both so much for the kind comments.

These are the best kitchens that I have seen in a long time. I like them all. Just one question. Would it be possible to have white recolours of your kitchens. White is always so crisp and clean in a kitchen. Keep up the good work.

Hi Tania-Lee
A number of people are doing recolours of these, so hopefully, white versions of these sets may be a distinct possibility. Wait a week or two and see what people post.
If none materialise, I'll see what I can do!

Great kitchen set, I have most of yours. I love shelves with lots of things on/in them. I especially love that you provide a collection file so I don't have to do it myself! :D

Just a thought: you could upload the items on the shelf as separates so people whose computers can't handle the high poly counts and choose what they want to put on the shelves. It's a happy medium between all or nothing.

Hi again, Simtomatic! Another great set. You do fabulous work. Again though, I wanted to let you know that the Q-Express automatically puts the collection file into the Downloads folder instead of the collections folder.

The "Galloping Gourmet" didn't have it this good in his t.v. kitchen - THANX! (oh yes, a white recolour would be gastronomical!)
