The plot:
Point of view:

“Deluxe Model” is a short story about a 11-yeard old boy, visiting his friend Hugh Gould, whose parents concluded the remodeling of their kitchen.

The narrator observes how the kitchen is equipped with all the new apparatus, but most importantly the extraordinary new dishwasher.


The story happens in a house in Chorley Wood, which is part of the greater London urban area. The narrator is impressed by the scale of the garden

and the innumerable different rooms in Hugh’s house, which indicates that we are somewhere in the higher-middle to upper-class neighborhood.
