Yes,not your cell phone but appliance in your house so surprised to hear that Mike said he want to upgrade some of the appliance. This is a first for him.He forever holding on things for years. We have a stainless bread box and toaster. Now he want a wooden bread box and not sure about what kind of toaster. Most people have stainless stove and fridge.We do not. enamel stove and fridge.I keep asking him to up grade this? No answer.Do you like the stainless appliance.Are they hard to clean. I guess will have to start with the bread box.LOL photo is what he wants.Photo is domaine

We had stainless appliances in our last home, and I did like the look. Did not find them hard to clean either. We went with all black in this house because that is the only color we have not tried over the many years we have had houses. I like the black. The kitchen has sort of an old-world French theme, so the black seems right.

I heard from some people who have stainless steel appliances and hate the cleaning part.

Not hard to clean at all. We've had stainless for 15 years not an issue.

We did have to buy a new fridge and washer and dryer for the house when we got it in 2013, but nothing too too fancy like stainless steel. We upgrade when they break.

We have upgraded everything and when one room is done, we move on to another. I wish I had more houses! Our kichen is stainless in Florida. Here, most of the appliances are covered in wood.

my appliances here belong to the landlord. They work fine so I've no problem with them being old...I don't want to spend on a cooker, washer and fridge I'd like upgrades on my carpets though

Becky insists on enameled appliances but they tend to chip when I pressure wash them.

We have upgraded the refrigerator/freezer and the oven last year. The refrigerator is stainless and it's not hard at all to clean.

@amadeo There are several finish, the shiny stainless steel is the more difficult to clean, while satin or matte finish are very easy to clean.

We upgrade homes! This house in only 5 years old (2 when we bought it) so appliances were new but we did change the electric cook top to gas and we bought a new fridge since the old one was severely scratched. No bread box, they are sorta old fashioned! We have a bread drawer built into the cabinets. stainless all the way.

That is a pretty bread box, we have a piece of furniture and one section is for our bread. Our 12 year old dishwasher is acting up and I think it will be replaced.

Back when I lived in a house we upgraded every appliance in the kitchen to stainless. It polishes up nicely.

Love the photo, I saw it and thought, "I want one." I like bamboo best as it definitely helps with my hyperacusis. I was grabbing a glass bowl from the cupboard this morning and it hit against another. OUCH so much pain, my right ear experienced sudden deafness which only lasted a short time but my left ear is still trying to recover hours later. Where did he see this image? I'd love to check out prices.

I really do not upgrade,most of my things are less than 10 years old (after divorce i got everything new) so i have no need to upgrade for now.
