A man walks past at a kitchen by German kitchen maker Haecker inside a furniture shop in Berlin 
A man walks past at a kitchen by German kitchen maker Haecker inside a furniture shop in Berlin March 6, 2015. Sales of new kitchens are up more than 10 percent already this year at German kitchen maker Haecker. For those who would rather someone else did the cooking, roasted monkfish and turbot with truffles are flopping onto plates at Berlin's Michelin-starred restaurant Fischers Fritz. With interest rates on savings low, unemployment falling, oil prices sliding and pay rises outpacing inflation, economists say German consumers have finally woken up and are likely to keep on spending through 2015. Markus Sander, marketing head at Haecker, a family firm with more than 1,200 employees, said Germans were now splurging on high-end kitchens - many costing more than a new car - because low interest rates made saving unattractive and loans cheap.
