---------------------------- Steel, chromium, and nickel Stainless steel is steel to which has been added chromium and nickel. This results in steel with a very hard surface that will resist both pitting and rusting. The chromium gives itrepparttar characteristic shiny surface layer andrepparttar 100079 nickel gives itrepparttar 100080 non-magnetic character. So when your refrigerator magnets do not stick, blamerepparttar 100081 nickel. If scratched, stainless steel can in fact self heal. A new layer of oxide will be produced that can cover over small scratches. But, sincerepparttar 100082 surface layer is extremely thin rust can result ifrepparttar 100083 scratch pierces this layer and exposesrepparttar 100084 base steel. ------------------------------ Stainless considered high end Most manufacturers offer stainless steel appliances as part of their high end product lines. General Electric calls their stainless series Profile or Monogram. Frigidaire calls theirs Pro Gallery. Maytag, Whirlpool, and LG also offer stainless steel versions of their products. Frigidaire has recently uppedrepparttar 100085 stakes withrepparttar 100086 introduction of an even higher priced series called Icon. The Icon is an all steel finish that stresses clean and contemporary lines while maintaining all necessary functionality. Other manufacturers will be responding. ------------------ Fad or functional Do you remember green, yellow, or brown refrigerators? How about turquoise stoves, or black washing machines? At one time these were all consideredrepparttar 100087 “in” thing. So isrepparttar 100088 stainless steel appliance just another fad? I don’t think so. Stainless steel appliances are a style that has capturedrepparttar 100089 public attention and will continue to do so. A style of appliance that continues to attract consumers in ever increasing numbers each year. So, whateverrepparttar 100090 reason that people love stainless, it would appear they will remain on consumer wish lists intorepparttar 100091 foreseeable future.
