Durability of ss finished refrigerators



(-----) 2007

We are building a house in Grass Valley, CA and are attempting to choose our kitchen appliances. We are leaning toward stainless steel but are getting conflicting advice as to its durability. Would we be making a mistake filling our kitchen with it? My husband and I will be the only ones living in the home but we do have two small grandchildren that will visit. Should we go ahead and get the SS or try to find similar looking finish (i.e. ultra satin from Sears)? Is there any other finish that is easier maintenancewise or are we doomed no matter what we choose?

After fielding hundreds upon hundreds of letters from people with stained, discolored, or scratched stainless steel and faux stainless steel refrigerators I am convinced that they offer nothing approaching the durability of simple painted appliances. Unfortunately, almond and white are almost as "out" as avacado, and fashion seems to currently demand stainless steel no matter how overpriced and troublesome :-)

If you can bear the scorn from your grandchildren, buy white appliances :-)
