Question:

Stainless steel or white appliances?

Having a new kitchen and would like to know the pros and cons of stainless steel as opposed to white appliances. I can only think of finger marks on the SS, which I believe are difficult to remove. Anyone had both that they could advise please?

Answer:

I have Stainless Steel and YES it shows finger prints etc, Since there are no children around it's easier to keep clean, but one word of caution when using commercial SS cleaners, if the spray gets onto the floor it's almost impossible to get off and makes it slippery as ice. I'd use newspaper before using a SS cleaner,, I've had both and would opt for WHITE in any case. So easy to maintain, Now, they do make a Faux SS, which is very nice., and don't show any markings at all, our Son has one and with 3 kids in the house constantly using the Fridge it's been great, you might want to look into that..

A relative had a stainless steel range. It always looked a fingerprinted mess. I have never liked it. To me, it is grey with a sheen. I hate grey. I am a white appliance person all the way. White makes the room look cleaner, brighter and larger and it is easy to keep clean. Stainless is a nightmare to keep clean. Almost forgot to mention, when we bought our house a few years ago, it had a stainless steel range, horribly marked and scratched. I got rid of it, in keeping with white.

Like others said about Stainless Steel, plus if bleach accidentally touched it, it will leave a permanent scar, Stainless Steel can be cleaned with water and soap then with baby oil. White will be better.

We got rid of the Stainless Steel because they showed every smudge, finger print and smear. Very hard to clean. Harder to keep clean. I recommend any color except Stainless Steel.
