    Use paste wax on stainless steel appliances. Put a coat on, let it dry and buff it. No fingerprints!

    We eat out most of the time. That means we rarely have to worry about smudged appliances.

    We’re looking to replace our 17 year old white stove. White is now a “premium” color. And they no longer make ranges with drip trays under the burners. :-(

    Glass stove tops require daily cleaning if you want to keep them nice looking. It doesn’t take long for them to look bad if you don’t polish them properly and use non-scratching pots.

    About 15 seconds every morning using a product called “Invisible Glass” on the smudged areas. Discovered this by accident. All stainless appliances still look brand new.

    Don’t replace an old, but still serviceable item. We had a dining room table Hubby bought second-hand in 1974 for $100. It was a workhorse! I could pin patterns, work on dollhouses, work jigsaw puzzles, etc. We also ate on it. It looked a mess, but throw a tablecloth over it and nobody knew. Somebody had a solid cherry Queen Anne set on the local Swap List for $150, so we bought it. The new table is lovely, but it’s not good for anything but eating.

    I have the same feeling about the Keurig coffee maker. But can’t switch back to the drip kind ‘cause there’s a small fortune of “Kups” in the pantry. What a waste of money!

    My “new” stove is brushed nickel, very easy to clean. However, I bought it for the burner arrangement and because the top has a raised edge that is over 1 cm high, so boil-overs can’t drip onto the floor.

    Stainless Steel appliances are the Avocado appliances of this century

    I have lived through ALL the colors of large appliances: White, Pink, Turquoise, Brown, Coppertone, Harvest Gold, Avocado Green, Almond, Black, and five shades of Stainless Steel. And I don’t EVEN want to talk about shag carpeting.

    Had the harvest gold stove and fridge back in the 80’s. Fridge had 3 doors. Freezer on one side and ice maker on the top. Stove had the knobs on top along side of burners. Thought that was the coolest. Ah…memories.

    Please don’t move back to white for everything, and don’t give anyone else the isea that it’s a good idea. I want to build a house, and I am finding everything I need on Craig’slist in white practically free, because the owners are putting in stainless steel. Looks like a chemistry lab, not a home where people actually eat and talk and love each other. But, I will be the first to tell them how great their new steel lab looks, since I want the pretty ones.

    If you have kids even clear-coat and barbed wire won’t prevent smudges and streaks…

    Good ole fashioned WD40 works too. Spray on a cloth and wipe away fingerprints.

    Kitchen appliances should be white enamel, the way nature intended.

    My wife hates the stainless steel stuff, but it’s getting more difficult to get a white option in the appliance you want.
