If you want to upgrade your kitchen with a new distinctive and rich look, the new black stainless steel that has just been released by Whirlpool in 2018 might be a great fit. It can 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 stainless steel a run for its money in the future. It is also currently offered by LG, Samsung, KitchenAid, Frigidaire, and GE. Bosch also recently came out with their own version of black stainless steel as well. The color, finish, and the manufacturing process are all slightly different from one manufacturer to another. 


When purchasing black stainless steel appliances, it will probably be important to purchase all the appliances from the same manufacturer in an appliance package if you want an exact match. They are all sleek-looking and fingerprint resistant. Learn more about the pros and cons of black stainless steel in our article! In this article we’ll take a close look at Whirlpool's black stainless products to help you decide if they are right for you should you decide on black stainless.

Whirlpool may be the single most recognized brand in the appliance industry. Whirlpool is an American company that also owns the KitchenAid and Maytag brands. In their Whirlpool line, they'll be offering a complete suite of kitchen appliances in this exciting new color, from refrigerators to wall ovens and dishwashers. This includes their new low profile microwave as well. For model number nerds (if you exist), the new Whirlpool black stainless steel products will all have model numbers ending in the letter "V." When shopping online, you'll be able to differentiate the new color by looking for the "V-line." 

In addition to rolling it out in black stainless steel, you'll also get the beautiful new Whirlpool handle and the opportunity to choose several smart appliances models. If you are interested in smart or connected appliances, read our complete article about that new trend to learn more.

Whirlpool'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. Once you see them you will probably fall in love with the look. Whirlpool's take on black stainless features a brushed, matte metallic black that's fingerprint resistant. They also recently came out with another unique color, Whirlpool Sunset Bronze!

Here's a quick overview of what you can expect from Whirlpool's black stainless steel line:

  • A matte finish, brushed black metal that's fingerprint resistant

  • An elegantly curved handle

  • Smart appliance options


The Whirlpool line's black stainless has slightly more of a "grain" or brushed look than the KitchenAid line and has very closely color-matched handles. At this time, they have a limited range of products available in black stainless since they released it so recently. Like many brands, they have focused on adding this finish option to their mid- and higher-end appliances. We hope they will roll out more products in black stainless this year!

Black stainless steel has a long way to go to catch up with the popularity of "regular" 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 member’s homes. There is no way to be sure, but my opinion is that black stainless steel is here to stay.

Head out to the stores and take a look at black stainless steel appliances. 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.
