I need help with appliance choice for the kitchen

cempsonNovember 12, 2012
I am needing to replace appliances. They are now white and would like to update to something else. My first choice was stainless, finger prints being a problem, though.Then I saw the new slate color that GE now has in the showrooms. No finger print problems. Any thoughts on the new slate color and what I might do to make up my mind?

I actually haven't seen the new slate color, though now I'm super curious.

For what it's worth, I have stainless in my kitchen and don't really notice a big problem with fingerprints. If I give it the once-over every so often they look great. Granted, if my kids were littler, it would probably be a bigger issue. :)

Thanks Emily!
The slate is brand new and not even fully out in the market place yet. I saw a set up at our major furniture and appliance store....I think they are testing the market.
I ended up with stainless, and like you, I don't have little kids everyday, but do have grandchildren ...so will get to test it out!
Thanks for your comments!

Not sure whether you are interested in a cabinet depth refrigerator, but the new Slate line doesn't seem to have them yet. A deal breaker for me. Otherwise they look lovely.
But I too don't seem to have fingerprint problems with my SS fridge. Maybe because it is brushed SS? Or maybe because adults tend to grab handles rather then pushing doors closed with a full palm.
