If you want to upgrade your kitchen with a new distinctive and rich look, the new Black Stainless Steel that is offered by KitchenAid as well as many other appliance manufacturers might fit in well with your plans. It can create the look that will WOW your family and friends!
With all the new colors that have come and gone in the appliance industry, black stainless steel has the strongest commitment from the manufacturers and will probably give stainless steel a run for its money in the future. It is also currently offered by LG, Samsung, Frigidaire, GE, Whirlpool and Bosch. The colors are slightly different from one manufacturer to another as is the manufacturing process. When purchasing black stainless steel appliances, it will be important to purchase all of the appliances from the same manufacturer so that the colors and the handles will match. All black stainless steel options are naturally fingerprint resistant. The question of whether to choose black stainless or one of many other new appliance colors when you upgrade your kitchen is up to you.
KitchenAid is an upscale brand of appliances and they were one of the first to introduce black stainless steel to the appliance industry. They offer a complete suite of kitchen appliances from built in refrigerators to wall ovens and dishwashers in this new exciting color. KitchenAid starts with a stainless steel base and chemically treats it to achieve a rich black stainless steel finish. It is resistant to fingerprints and smudges and it gives a warmer and softer look to the appliances.
Unlike other manufacturers, KitchenAid’s handles and hardware are stainless steel on these models, giving the appliances a nice accent and contrast for an even richer look. This will also help it to match with other stainless steel accents in your kitchen.

Black stainless steel has a long way to go to catch up with the popularity of stainless steel, but it is on its way as more products are being introduced in the color and more customers are seeing it on display in stores and in friends' and family members' homes. There is no way to be sure, but my opinion is that black stainless steel is here to stay.
Take a look at black stainless steel appliances in person. They are really a game-changing item in the appliance industry. Even if you are not ready to buy yet, you might want to see them in person and experience the look.
