Default Stainless Steel Appliances

I was told there are some stainless steel appliances where fingerprints do not show up. Is there something in a name I should look for? A certain material to look for?

Also what are the differences for stainless steel and stainless steel professional?

Thanks

It's usually a finish they put on the steel which helps reduce the finger prints. Also make sure to bring a magnet as real stainless isn't magnetic

Usually the S/S finish on Samsung appliances tend to show fingerprint more easily, where as Fridgedaire's don't really show that easily it's some "smudge proof" thing on their Gallery series.

Quick Tip - Don't stick something to your fridge with a metal clip/magnet.

When your child grabs the posted sheet of paper/artwork/whatever, it leaves a nice gouge down the fridge door.

Ah well, it goes well with the scratched hardwood from our dog I suppose.....

Any idea if KitchenAid fridges have something similar to what GE has "clean steel" or something like that? I haven't actually seen the fridge itself but just on their website.

Are the flat doors nicer?

IMO flat doors look really good, they make a good statement, looks tough & looks more high-er end.

We have the professional series counter-depth with the flat doors and they look great. Also this fridge shows much less fingerprints than the LG we had in our previous house.

I was wondering what model number is that? I'm on the KitchenAid site and the Pro model doesn't offer counter depth?

Also do you have a picture of your ovens/microwave (brand)?

And what make and model is your exhaust range..

Thanks
