I'm sure this has been asked before but I'm going to ask again. In the past, all stainless appliance I saw were a fingerprint and smudge magnet. I talked with the appliance lady last week and she said that most newer models are much better at hiding those smudges and stay clean looking longer.
IS THIS TRUE? Or do they still take a lot to keep clean?

beaus rose, thanks for the tip. we have all stainless appliances. (less than 2 years old) my husband insisted on them. i HATE them!! they show everything. i have special cleaning products but nothing seems to work well for me. i will try the WD 40.
We came to our usual winter condo to be thrilled by a beautiful new kitchen. Until.... we had been here two days. New Maytag stainless appliances perform wonderfully but show every touch. Now, I will go to my home and be happy with my not quite trendy white appliances.

The stainless i have is easy maintenance and no finger prints. I just wipe it down with stainless steel cleaner and it looks refreshed again. I'm not sure what type stainless steel the front is, but it is not magnetic so i am not able to cover the front with magnets and papers, which is probably a good thing.
Be careful to check on those "clean steel" or no fingerprint finishes. Some are NOT real stainless steel and are coatings that wear or scratch off. Bring a magnet with you, if it sticks to it, it not stainless steel.
I just got a new S/S fridge and it does show fingerprints. The GE installer suggested I get these Weimans S/S wipes and boy do they work great!
