Kenmore has always been at the forefront of home appliances. The latest innovations can do just about everything, from preventing smudges to connecting to your smart home technology. As you begin researching cutting-edge features for your kitchen or utility room, consider these appliance innovations from Kenmore in 2018.

1. Fingerprint-Resistant Material

There are two awesome finishes that can keep those pesky smudges off your appliance. Black stainless steel is traditional stainless steel that has an additional coating of polymer, giving your appliance a smooth, matte finish and repelling fingerprint marks and other stains. The sleek design blends easily with many modern appliances and decor.

Active Finish™ Stainless Steel is used on the latest Kenmore kitchen appliances. This feature is built to resist smudges and can be cleaned very easily with just a damp cloth. Unlike traditional stainless steel finishes, it also is magnetic, allowing you to pin everything from your kid's artwork to a calendar to the fridge.

A simple voice command is all it takes to customize your air conditioning, start a laundry load or refill your ice maker. Amidst the chaos of a hectic schedule, Amazon Alexa and Kenmore smart appliances can help every day run smoothly.
