What's After Stainless Steel?

While visions of stainless steel danced in their heads...Stainless steel appliances have now become the standard for all new homes and for those looking to upgrade. It's not that they are unappealing but what else is out there in terms of innovative design? What's the next big thing? What will eventually replace stainless steel?

If you're looking for something a little different in a refrigerator, check out the Smeg Fab28 . It's a sleek 1950's style refrigerator that is now available in the U.S. Originally from the UK, this little gem is available in 10 different colors. I really like that it's not GIGANTIC like most of the new styles are now. I mean come on, most of us don't have a family of 10 where we need that much space, right? Here are the specs:

  • Capacity 9.22 Cu. Ft.
  • Antibacterial interior
  • Interior light
  • 3 adjustable glass shelves
  • 1 bottle storage shelf
  • 1 fixed glass shelf
  • 1 fruit and vegetable container
  • 1 dairy box

  • Another design inspired by the 1950's icebox is the Italian Meneghini refrigerators. Not only do they come in over 500 colors, but you can also choose from 8 different wood finishes, single or double models, and 3 different height options. These are a little pricey but I think they are really neat.

    What about transparent appliances? Will they replace stainless steel? In Asia, they've come out with transparent refrigerators and dryers. A company called Inventables is working in their concept studio on a transparent toaster. This cool design means no more burnt toast! Check it out: Inventables

    If you've ever been to England, read a Rosamunde Pilcher novel, or are an appliance aficionado, you'll know about the Aga. They are the ultimate in cooking. Really. Here's what goes into this one of a kind creation and here's the history. I think these are by far the BEST appliance anyone could invest in. I guess it doesn't help that I've wanted one since I was about 15. They come in a range of colors and will last you your lifetime.
