On the plus side, the stainless is attactive, contemporary and I really don't think it is any more "trendy" than white would be. The negatives would be the "smudge" factor and the fact that you cannot use magnets on real stainless refrigerators. Neither one of these negatives bothers me much. There are stainless cleaners for the smudges and I really like the look of a fridge without stuff stuck all over it. However, my mind may change when my granddaugher begins to make pictures for Nana.

Our refrigerator, dishwasher and oven are all Whirlpool(because I have over 30 years of good luck with them) Our stove top is a General Electric Monogram gas cooktop(because everything else I wanted was too expensive)! Our microwave/convection wall oven is a Sharp(suggested by the sales person, because you can get custom trim so that you can put it in a bank of cabinets) All of the appliances are somewhat higher end than "middle of the road" I wish I would have spent the extra money for a wolfe or dacor pro range, would have had to reconfigure the kitchen though, our cooktop is in the island.

One piece of advice.....Don't get too caught up in "brands" every brand makes good, better, best. Some brands just have lower standards. Buy the best that you can afford and do some research before buying, check out consumer reports. I know how hard it is to make all of these decisions, they seem never ending, but once it's all done "your laughing" Good luck!
I tend to be to detailed and research quite a bit and often I find that personal experiences people have had are what draws me a certain way. It's good to know if several people have a lot of cons regarding same product. What Samsung models did you get for your stove and refrig.?
