If you've listened to the internet buzz surrounding Stainless Steel, you'll know just how popular it is. At CES this year, there were many attempts to dethrone it by showcasing shiner colors that won't smudge. Little did these companies know, Frigidaire was quietly working on a project that's straight out of a science fiction movie.They created something so preposterous that you have to see it to believe it. What is that something you ask smudge-proof stainless steel! Yes, it exists.
When surveyed, the average consumer said they would remain loyal to stainless steel, but that it was just too hard to keep clean. Being one of those consumers, I totally feel their pain. In the kitchen, stainless must be cleaned regularly and frequently or a nasty combo of oil and dust starts to dull the finish. Not to mention, it becomes impossible to clean.
Luckily, Frigidaire's new range of stainless steel kitchen appliances will do away with this headache completely.
We know you're ready with a barrage of questions and we're here to answer, so let's go!
How Does it Work? The Smudge-Proof Stainless Steel That Is?
Well, the exact way that it works is a top-secret , but we can tell you that there?s a protective layer over the stainless steel that protects the finish and makes it easy to clean. Think of it like the clear coat of gloss that goes over a beautiful clay pot, or the top coat that goes over nail polish only classier. This coat allows you to wipe it down with no effort and no specific cleaning products. Just a little soap and warm water will do.
What Else Does it Do?
Well, we're glad you asked. Each individual smudge-proof product has its own features (which we'll get into later), but there are a few things we can list here to answer your question. First, this stainless steel is more than just smudge-proof, it's also stain proof. In fact, there's a cute little video of adorable kids wiping mustard and ketchup all over them; quite happily may we add. Even after being allowed to dry, the condiments came right off as if they were oils. We don't suggest painting your refrigerator with condiments, although it looks fun in the video, but it definitely is up to the challenge should you choose to do so. So basically this stainless steel, isn't just smudge-proof; it's truly stainless.

At the time of this writing, they are not. So far, the Gallery collection is the only collection that carries this line of smudge-proof stainless steel appliances. In this collection, there are smudge-proof refrigerators, ranges, ovens, and dishwashers.
