If you want to upgrade your kitchen with a distinctive and rich look, the new black stainless steel appliances offered by Samsung and a few other appliance manufacturers might fit in well with your plans. They can help create a 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 traditional stainless steel a run for its money in the future. It is also offered by KitchenAid, LG, Frigidaire, GE, Whirlpool, and Bosch. The colors are slightly different from one brand to the next as is the manufacturing process.

Should You Buy Samsung Black Stainless?

When purchasing black stainless steel appliances, it will be important to purchase your entire suite from the same manufacturer so that the handles and - more importantly - the colors all match. The question of whether to choose black stainless when you upgrade your kitchen is up to you.

Like almost all other manufacturers (except Bosch), Samsung's black stainless is a coating applied on top of stainless steel. One point of frustration is that these coatings can be scratched, revealing the stainless steel underneath. Shallow scratches can be polished out or spot refinished, similar to scratches on a car, but overall you should plan to treat black stainless gently and be aware of the care instructions provided by the manufacturer. Samsung's black stainless is made to "pencil hardness," so anything harder than a pencil may scratch the finish. 


Take a closer look at Samsung black stainless steel!



Samsung is one of the most innovative appliance manufacturers and they introduced black stainless into their line in late 2015 and early 2016. They now offer a complete suite of kitchen appliances from French door refrigerators to wall ovens and dishwashers in this new exciting color, as well as laundry products.

Samsung's black stainless steel is a premium finish that is resistant to fingerprints and smudges and it gives a warmer and softer look to the appliances. Their handles also have the black stainless steel finish, matching the appliance. Subtle accents like bar handles add an industrial feel, while the smooth graphite look of the appliance is an alternative to the brushed metal look and has a little more of a gloss to it.

Samsung's black stainless steel appliances create a whole new look for the kitchen that is soft, elegant and different. They are exceptionally beautiful products and a great alternative to regular stainless or black appliances. Black stainless steel has a long way to go to catch up with the popularity of traditional stainless steel, but it's on its way as more products are being introduced in the color and more customers are seeing it on display in stores and in the homes of their friends and family members. There is no way to be sure, but in my opinion, black stainless steel is here to stay.

Take a look at these 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. You can discover more new appliance color reviews here!
