‘after stainless, now what?’, an article by ellen byron in the 5 september 2012 wall street journal, suggests that stainless steel kitchen appliances are becoming passe.

so, appliance manufacturers are introducing new finishes as an alternative to stainless steel.  could this be an attempt to increase sales, which have declined along with the housing market?  or, to increase profits by offsetting manufacturer discounts?

stainless steel, considered the premium kitchen appliance finish for 25 years, generates 35% of all appliance sales.  usually, consumers only purchase new kitchen appliances when they are building a house, remodeling their kitchen, or replacing a broken appliance.  since they don’t purchase new appliances very often, consumers often mix and match appliance brands.

if you were purchasing new kitchen appliances, which finish would you choose?

white ice or white?  black ice or black?  or, stainless steel?

‘i could add another 100 colors and the percentage wouldn’t change much.’

do you think that stainless steel kitchen appliances are a cliche?  or, a classic?
