  • Anybody have stainless steel appliances and not like them?

    I need new appliances (fridge/freezer, oven, microwave range, dishwasher) sometime in the near future. It seems like stainless steel is the go-to color these days. I figure it is a semi-major purchase that will last a decade or more so the entire "buy once, cry once" theory sort of applies. Of course, it doesn't really matter to me... my current appliances are white.... and don't work.

    Yeah, on the side if you keep them a long time, hence the wine rack being horizontal. I mostly store my wine at the world's liquor stores.

    When I go out to see a band at a club, I will usually have a few beers. I has a few beers at a friend out on NYE.



    When I was gigging out doing solo wok, I'd have a beer when I played.





    Just opened my fridge and it looks like there still some Magic Hat Blind Faith in there. I might stay in there another month for all I care.

    We're cheap, we have a small little paid off house with a lot of yard backing into the woods / greenbelt. One of my New Year's resolutions for this year is to get the rest of the house renovated / remodeled, starting with the bathrooms.

    I rarely sit around my house and drink, not even beer.



    I store my bottles all wrong too, standing up.

    One thing that really irked me was the wine rack has a lot of useless space. The lattice is centered so the slots on the far left and far right won't hold a bottle. Had the cabinet designer notice that I'd either have ordered the rack a little smaller or a little larger. As it is, just a lot of wasted space.

    If you're worried about quality and longevity, Miele is supposed to be the best at everything...pricy though.

    This is the kind of stuff I wish someone else would just make the decision for me. I really don't care. Like I said, the only reason I'm really getting it is because I'm getting tired of asking why microwave/oven/dishwasher doesn't work. I had a buddy out to look at fixing them, but with the prices of the equipment and labor it is hardly more to just buy new stuff. The old stuff is white and I really don't mind.



    I looked online and it doesn't appear to increase the value of your home, so now I'm back to just replacing it with white.

    i helped my mother get a new fridge recently, and tried to steer her to a stainless one, but she insisted on white. The white really does look better in her spot
