Kitchen with dark cabinets and stainless steel appliances.



It should come as no surprise to you that these days that kitchen stainless steel appliances are by far the most popular for kitchens.  Check out our data chart and table below for precise figures.  Of course there are pros and cons to stainless steel kitchen appliances.

It wasn’t all that long ago in the big scheme of things that stainless steel was considered an upgrade.

These days, it’s standard.  Yes, stainless steel costs a bit more than non-stainless steel appliances; however, because it’s so widespread, it can hardly be considered a premium appliance option.

This post showcases over 1,000 kitchen designs with stainless steel appliances.  We add more every week.  Frankly, stainless steel works with any kitchen color, features, cabinet finish, island design, countertop, backsplash, kitchen lighting, faucets and style.  That’s what is cool about this style of appliance.

While our gallery focuses on the main appliances such oven, stove, refrigerator and dishwasher, you can also get most smaller appliances such as coffee makers, toasterstoaster ovens and microwaves to name a few in stainless steel.

Below is our massive gallery.

Selling your home

Recently, a real estate agent contributed to an article titled “Top 10 Kitchen Upgrades for Home Sellers“.  This article focuses on which kitchen upgrades help with netting a higher price for your home and/or selling your home faster.  It was his professional opinion that stainless steel appliances are definitely worth installing in your home just for resale value and saleability of your home.

What about those nasty smudges and fingerprints?

Smudges and fingerprints was the main reason my mom never wanted stainless steel appliances.  With us kids in the house touching everything with our filthy hands, she knew she’d be wiping down appliances day and night.

However, smudges and fingerprints are a problem of the past.  Now you can buy smudge and fingerprint proof stainless steel appliances.  That’s pretty cool, isn’t it?

How much does a full fleet of stainless steel appliances cost?

The range is huge because there are some very high end appliances, especially ovens and stoves.  However, you can get a decent brand for a full fleet (fridge, oven/stove and dishwasher) for $2,500 to $3,500.

When you go high end the costs can climb to astronomical amounts… even approaching $10,000.
