Sustainability: Most stainless steel is made of 60 percent recycled content and, because it can be recycled again and again, has an extended useful life. Be sure to seek out American-made stainless steel with a high percentage of recycled content. For healthy indoor air quality, the glues should have no or low VOCs, and the plywood or fiberboard should be labeled "no added urea formaldehyde."
Technological innovation: Technology also will enable seamless aging-in-place design and the incorporation of electronic displays and control panels, as well as lighting, into kitchen surfaces — countertops in particular. Further product innovations and electronic advances will make wireless/plugless countertop appliance operation a reality.
