Frigidaire Gallery® launches new smudge-proof black stainless suite of appliances combining sleek design with time-saving performance

10 January, 2017

The new suite of glossy black, smudge-resistant appliances gives consumers a neutral, clean palette for the modern kitchen

ORLANDO, FL, January 10, 2017 – Today at the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS), Frigidaire Gallery® launched its new Smudge-ProofTM Black Stainless Steel collection, designed to meet the growing consumer need for stylish alternatives to traditional stainless steel product suites. Building on the brand’s legacy of innovation, the new line adds an upgraded finish to its best-selling appliances and includes time-saving features that make preparation, cooking, clean up and organization quicker and easier.

The full collection is equipped with Smudge-Proof™ Black Stainless Steel that resists fingerprints and cleans easily, giving consumers time back to spend where it matter most, with their families. With a modern, neutral tone, the suite provides a fresh palette to build upon in the kitchen, complementing both bright, vibrant colors and dark muted accents. Whether adding light countertops and cabinetry or pops of color in the backsplash, the Smudge-Proof™ Black Stainless Steel appliances are the first step in creating a warm, calming atmosphere in the kitchen – the ideal place for savoring family moments.

“Our new Frigidaire Gallery® Smudge-Proof™ Black Stainless Steel suite was designed to meet the growing consumer need for materials that have the same quality and durability of stainless steel, but are more unique and modern looking,” said Narss Lapinid, ‎Senior Color, Material and Finish Designer at Electrolux. “Our soft black tone and innovative features draw families into a sleek kitchen environment that provides the quick and consistent results they crave, helping to streamline household tasks and maximize family time.”

To further the conversation around color in the kitchen, Frigidaire® will be joining interior design startup Homepolish, leading color expert Pantone Color Institute and design blog Design*Sponge for a panel discussion on January 10, 2017 at KBIS around how to choose the right color shades and schemes to improve the look, mood and feel of the home.
