There are so many benefits of Stainless steel appliances.

1. Durable and Beautiful

We know kitchen appliances have to withstand all the commotions of your busy home. Your stainless steel refrigerator won’t easily scratch while things are hung on it, and your range hood or stove needs to resist stains and corrosion through countless messes and meals. Because stainless steel is an alloy, it is extremely durable and able to withstand many years of use without showing signs of wear. It is also resistant to water damage and rust, which are two important considerations in a kitchen.

We hold two types of stainless steel in our range hoods, 430 and 304.

Learn more about those types here.

2. Easy to Care for and Clean

Stainless makes cleanup a breeze. It is pretty easy to wipe up a spill or clean and polish up a dingy surface using just a clean rag and some simple household cleaners. Special cleaners and polishes for stainless steel can remove more stubborn messes too.

3. Hygienic

Stainless steel is non-porous, which makes it able to resist common germs and bacteria found in the kitchen much better than other surfaces like plastics or wood. This attribute makes it great for homes with big families, children, seniors, and animals. Disinfectant cleaners easily sanitize areas near food prep or cooking surfaces.

4. Will Match Your Decor

No matter what the trend stainless steel is a neutral look that complements nearly any design style. Whether you prefer the look of dark (or not so dark) wood cabinets or more modern designs with light whites, bright colors, or marble countertops, stainless steel appliances will work perfectly. And, of course, if/when you sell your home, stainless steel appliances will usually make your kitchen more appealing to prospective buyers.

5. Mix and Match Pieces

Because it’ so popular right now, it’s easy to find coordinating stainless steel items from different companies like toasters, blenders, or juicers in the same finish. For example, you could also install a stainless steel range from Viking with a range hood from Proline Range Hoods.

Of course, if you ever need help selecting a range hood, check out our Range Hood Buyers Guide HERE.

6. Caring for Stainless Steel

We suggest you clean your stainless steel appliances as needed with either glass cleaner or a little soap and water. Simply add liquid soap to a cloth soaked in warm water and wipe off any marks and smudges. Use glass cleaner and a paper towel to remove fingerprints. Special cleaning products are also available for stainless steel appliances, but before you try one, if you have some acetone around try it as well. See the video below for a quick demonstration and a few more tips on cleaning your stainless steel appliances.
