You may have shied away from stainless steel appliances at the risk of seeming trendy. Indeed, stainless steel appliances have taken the world by storm over the past few years, and have dominated the design scene. But if you’re strictly looking for function in your kitchen stove or refrigerator, stainless steel provides much more than a pretty face to your appliances. There are several benefits to choosing stainless steel that go beyond design.
Stainless steel is durable.
Because it can stand up to very cold and very hot temperatures, stainless steel is ideal for appliances. And, unlike other materials like ceramic or plastic, stainless steel is far less breakable. It can dent, but it won’t shatter or chip – and that means it will stand the test of time for you and your family.
And it’s resistant to rust.
Your stainless steel appliances will be very resistant to rusting of any kind. Just don’t take a Brillo pad to them – doing so will cause small bits of steel wool to embed in the stainless steel – and that will cause rust to occur.
Plus, stainless steel is easy to clean.
A lot of people with stainless steel appliances have a common complaint – it shows smudges and fingerprints easily. But on the plus side, cleaning those greasy marks is a breeze. Simply wipe the surface down with liquid soap and water, or use glass cleaner and a polishing cloth.
Stainless steel has a neutral appearance, too.
Yes, we know you pride yourself on balking trends, and we applaud your individuality. But that being said, stainless steel is neutral and as such goes with a variety of modern kitchen designs. And you can choose from varying surface finishes, from high-shine to a brushed look.
But… what about the price?
Stainless steel is pretty much comparable in price to other high-end appliances. And because of the durability factor, you’ll save in the long run when you choose stainless steel.
