Question:

buying Stainless Steel refrigerator?

I want to replace the old refrigator within the next 6 months........ Is the trend to buy a stainless steel refrigerator? Some magazines and internet sites are pointing me that direction. What are the pro's and con's ? I like the color bisque, or cream-color as well, or better, than stainless steel. What would be the reasons to buy stainless steel...is it becoming the most popular color ?

Answer:

I'm looking too and certainly the designer trend is to buy stainless steel. They look classy, shiny and bring a darker wood kitchen more life. However, there are companies that have put out fingerprint/smudge free stainless models. I have found their surfaces don't retain fingerprints - do test them in the store.If you have small children, stainless isn't the best choice. I love the look and practicality of the French Door fridges - great for smaller spaces. I was all set to buy an LG fridge and now I'm hearing that they're going on fire? Be sure to check Consumer Reports before you buy. Many of the cheaper models are now made in Mexico. I do notice the quality difference when I'm opening and closing fridge doors in the showrooms.

I think it's just the popular choice at the moment like avocado green was the hottest thing in the 1970s. I bought a Whirlpool Sateen. It has the look of stainless steel, but magnets will stick to it. There is no functional difference.

It's not about color necessarily. Stainless steel is easier to clean and for the most part scratch resistant. It's easier to take care of.

it is indeed in style.. but they're very hard to keep clean. take it from me. i have one. and if you even toush it with your finger. there's a smudge or mark. you have to constantly keep cleaning it. but it's no different that having a regular new refrigerator. they're just more stylish. but overall you should get the stainless steal one. just keep up with it. lol. hope it helped.
