The sleek, modern look of stainless steel appliances has captured the attention of homeowners in recent years, and it's probably not surprising. They are well suited to contemporary kitchen design, complementing the trend towards smooth surfaces and clean, uncluttered looks.

But despite the aesthetic value of stainless steel appliances, there have been some reservations on their ease of maintenance. How to keep an appliance looking as new is a frequently asked question.

Fisher & Paykel has a new solution, designed to remove any such concerns. The company's Active Smart® refrigerators and DishDrawer® in brushed stainless steel are now available with the EZKleen protective finish.

Australian marketing manager Tony Sweeney says this new, invisible layer protects the surface of the appliance, making it easy to maintain a clean and shiny finish.

"Homeowners often tell us they love the contemporary look of stainless steel, but they don't like cleaning off the grubby fingerprints all the time," says Sweeney. "With the EZKleen protective finish, marks can be quickly and easily removed with soapy water. No special stainless steel cleaners are needed.

"It's a way to have the best of both worlds the crisp, modern look of stainless steel and minimal maintenance."
