We’ve recently written about Frigidaire’s Smudge Proof Stainless Steel, KitchenAid’s Black Stainless Steel, GE’s Slate appliances, Samsung’s Tuscan finish, Viking’s Graphite Grey, Whirlpool’s White Ice and the bright appliance colors from BlueStar or Bertazzoni.
Now, we are highlighting two new finishes from Maytag: Maytag Cast Iron, and Maytag Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel.
Maytag Cast Iron Black
Maytag describes their Cast Iron Black as a “finely textured, matte finish…engineered to stand up to everyday scratches, minor dents and fingerprints that build up over time.” It’s a powder coating matte finish with a grit mixed in to give the base metal a tough exterior. Cast Iron Black will not only be resistant to fingerprints, but should hide those smudges, small dents and scratches. Inspired by Grandma’s Cast iron pots and pans, the tough black surface will fit well in most kitchen environments.
“Our new Cast Iron Black finish is as tough as it is timeless,” says Allison Gillespie, Maytag Senior Brand Manager. “It gives your kitchen a sleek and powerful look, while keeping your perishables cold, your dishes clean and your dinner hot.”
If you’re concerned about the durability of Cast Iron Black, here’s what Maytag has to say about the strength of this new finish:
“Built to last, Cast Iron Black endured over 1,000 hours of testing to make sure it can stand up to the everyday.”
Fingerprints on stainless steel appliances are by far the biggest complaint about stainless steel appliances. Maytag’s new Fingerprint Resistant Stainless Steel appliances are the latest in the “smudge-proof” category. While Maytag is super cautious in using the terms “smudge-proof or “fingerprint-free”, their new stainless steel appliances resist the oils on your hands, and perform well when compared to other (Frigidaire) brands touting Smudge-Proof TM Stainless Steel.
Of course, the point is that with new Maytag Smudge-Resistant Stainless Steel appliances you won’t have to spend all that time polishing the stainless steel in your kitchen to remove smudges and fingerprints. How do you know if the stainless steel appliance you are buying is Smudge-Resistant? Most Maytag appliances that come in Stainless Steel are Smudge-Resistant. Range hoods are not Smudge-Resistant. Check the product specifications or ask your sales associate.
