Stainless Shines

Stainless has been the trend in appliances for about two decades and according to WV Living Food’s latest poll, stainless is still the shining star in many kitchens indicating that 66% of readers appliances are stainless steel.

Kitchen appliances are a major investment and as someone who is considering investing in new kitchen appliances I wanted to know, does stainless have staying power? I decided to contact two of the states premiere kitchen dealers to ask them, what is the new stainless?

Joe at Mike’s Kitchen and Bath in Clarkburg maintains, “stainless steel is still the hottest color on the market, and it continues to be the trend.” He continues, "Our most popular brand of appliances are Thermador, Viking, and Jenn Air.”

Rob Stepp, president of Creative Kitchens in Charleston, Huntington, and Lewisburg echoes Joe’s sentiments maintaining, “I don’t see stainless leaving the scene anytime soon.” He did add however, “If you’re looking for the next big trend, it is not in a different color, but in a different type of cooking system. The magnetic induction cooking surfaces are the most dramatic change we’re seeing in cooking trends.”

And there you have it folks, it's not bronze or titanium , not even the awful olive green of your youth (well my youth anyway). Keep an eye on magnetic induction, coming to a kitchen near you!

Be sure to vote in our latest WV Living Food poll, "what is your favorite condiment?"
