BRUSHED STAINLESS STEEL
The brushed stainless steel finish has a matt look that is a good match for modern kitchen appliances. It is achieved by machining, dressing and brushing the base material. As this is not a painted or electroplated finish, it is therefore incredibly durable. Products can be cleaned or refinished again and again to make the surface finish look like new.
Please see the Product Care guide.
POLISHED STAINLESS STEEL
As with the brushed finish, polished stainless steel is achieved by finishing the base material. The final stage of the process is a fine polish. This is done by hand against a polishing wheel in stages using ever finer polishing compounds. The final finish is similar in lustre to chrome however, with a slightly yellower look due to the nickel content of the stainless steel.
