GE recently introduced a new finish for it’s major appliances. Slate, a dark gray metallic is a painted finish which has less sheen than stainless steel. Because it is a painted finish it is a lot easier to maintain than stainless steel. Many consumers will find this important because it solves the main problem associated with stainless steel appliances which would of course be those ever present hand and fingerprints. The slate finish is available in models that include a french door refrigerator, free standing gas and electric ranges, dishwashers and an over the range microwave. Look for it at your local retailer.
