For over two decades, stainless steel served as the pinnacle of kitchen design. The sleek, durable material is as functional as it is beautiful, but a new trend is starting to gain some serious attention. Read on to learn everything you need to know about black stainless steel and discover how it can improve your kitchen.

What is Black Stainless Steel?

First introduced in 2015, black stainless steel mimics all of the durable qualities of stainless steel, but it’s darker and more distinct in hue. The coloring is dark gray, which creates a modern contrast in any kitchen. Although it’s metallic, black stainless steel has a matte finish to display a rich, luxurious appearance.


Black stainless steel appliances can resist rust and staining for multiple years of use. It’s tough enough to withstand any job, whether you’re a four-star restaurant chef or a family of four!


Black stainless steel pairs well traditional materials, which means you won’t have to upgrade all of your appliances at once. Mix and match black stainless steel with your current appliances to create a unique aesthetic!


Black stainless steel resembles all of the quality of luxury for the price of functionality. Since it’s relatively new to the market, it provides kitchens with a high-end appearance. Many major brands carry black stainless steel options, but it hasn’t yet been widely produced to be available everywhere.


As black stainless steel continues to gain popularity, major brands are producing a variety of exciting appliance options. Try the KitchenAid Automatic Ice Maker in black stainless, or opt for the Black Stainless Wine Cellar to give your kitchen a special touch.
