Choosing Stainless Steel Appliances
Stainless steel appliances are quite attractive stuff to have at home. However, before you decide to buy, you need to consider one or two things. Stainless steel appliances are currently all the rage. They tend to give your kitchen a sleek, clean look. Even something as simple as stainless produces a ton of different choices. Be sure to know your product. Appliances come in various grades, from high grade stainless to a painted on stainless look. As you probably know, the major issue with stainless is finger prints. The good news is that most manufacturers now have a finger print resistant steel that all but eliminates the problem. Another important issue with stainless appliances is matching your refrigerator, dishwasher, range, and microwave. Unfortunately, manufacturers rarely do an entire series in the same stainless. Look carefully before you buy to ensure the pattern is the same and that the handles on all appliances match.
Stainless steel appliances usually cost up to a hundred dollars more per item. Remember, you pay for the look you want and doing a little research pays off, with best prices for quality products. The life cycle for appliances has shortened dramatically in recent years. Nothing lasts as long as in the past. Paying more for a quality product will ensure that you get more “bang for your bucks.”
