Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
We are going to get a set next month. Any advice/tips? I'm super excited we've been waiting for 4 years!

Matte black or Ice white.   Whirlpool even started a whole new line to showcase these shades.

Interesting, what's the new style? Lol

Quoting Val99:

Remember - lots of fingerprints and no fridge magnets.


Plus stainless steel actually went out of style about 5 years ago.  Look at some of the architectural magazines.  I was thinking about swapping all mine out now.

Yes. You had to clean them constantly. Especially if you have kids. And god forbid there is a water mark that you don't see right away. You will get a water line going down your appliance that sometimes won't come out. This is what happened when our water dispenser leaked over night.

Do you hate them because of the upkeep?

Quoting armywifey26:

Had them and hated them. When we buy new we will buy black appliances. But if you get them they do make stainless steel cleaning wipes that work pretty good. That is what we used anyway

Dishwasher was real stainless there are drips down the front. Rest of the appliances are plastic made to look like stainless/

I bought the display appliances so they were cheap!!

Get stainless steel wipes.  Makes it quick and easy to clean.


Also pick up barkeepers friend for any water marks you might get.  The front of the dishwasher and the area between the water dispenser and the floor down the front of the fridge.


never ever ever ever ever use anything even remotely abrasive on brushed stainless.
