Are stainless steel appliances still number one going forward? How about black or white?

Stainless steel wouldn't be my personal first pick due to the higher surface maintenance required. White or black appliances work perfectly depending on the kitchen.

Are you starting from scratch? I think black or white are fine but I think they require a little more thought to integrate as opposed to stainless which are very neutral. For example I don't generally like white cabinets with natural wood unless the kitchen is modern with a white-ish counter to tie it in. There are articles in the ideabooks about white and black appliances.

Stainless is timeless. Black is beautiful but shows dust and crumbs quite prominently. White is lovely if you are not doing white cabinetry. However, with the lower or mid ranged priced white appliances, the handles and control boards are often made of plastic which discolors with time.
