Whirlpool Sunset Bronze kitchen appliances: Would you?

Sunset Bronze applianceDoing some research about appliances, we bumped into this story in Whirlpool’s press room: Seems like the company is considering introducing a new color, “Sunset Bronze.”

I’m kinda into this Sunset Bronze, because it’s like the drawer fronts in American Brand Pioneer kitchens married the metal dome of my vintage Imperialite pendant light and gave birth to a rosy love child. I’m not in the market for new appliances myself, but if I were working on a retro kitchen project, I might play around with a mood board that considered these. The are different. And they are warm.

Bronze applianceThe Whirlpool’s PR rep was very helpful in supplying images, but seemed to be towing the line on whether the company is even bringing these to market. I think the story is, Whirlpool showed off this color at some trade show to gauge interest, and now they need to decide. Officially, Whirlpool told us, “We received tremendous positive response to the introduction of Sunset Bronze and are looking forward to bringing it to market in the future. Although we do not have a hard launch date yet, please continue to check Whirlpool.com for updates.” Whether this color makes the cut or not, it is nice to see a major mainstream manufacturer considering mass market options other than stainless, black and white.

What do you think of this new color, readers?

    I love the new finish. My daughter and I both need new applicances and have been waiting for this finish to come out. Can’t wait much longer and will have to settle for the UGLY stainless steel.
    Sunset Bronze looks like it would add warmth to the kitchen.
    Please bring it out soon.

    I add my plea for Whirlpool to stop dithering and produce this color! My aging appliances would like to retire!

    I absolutely have wanted bronze for some time … I want a WARMER .. Kitchen.
    Hate the grey , cold stainless steel.
    And tired of white …
    I’ve noticed accent pieces and light fixtures in antique brass are returning ..
    These appliances will match perfectly .,
    But lose the stainless handles ..
    Maybe wood grain ?!?!?

    I have been watching and waiting for the release of these appliances for over 2 years right after they were presented at the appliance show. Absolutely love the Sunset Bronze color. These appliances will make the entire kitchen look beautiful, especially with caramel colored cabinets. I am starting construction on a new home in the next 6 mos. and really want these appliances. I hate stainless steel, but have no alternative. Please go forward with this idea!!!
