Unfortunately, it ain't happening.

Actually, I too still like the coppertone. if you cannot find it look for jenn-Air they put out rubbed oiled bronze, looks very similar.

LOVE stainless. Black would be too dark for our kitchen and white would look glow in the dark. Stainless seems to be just right.

And for those concerned about keeping stainless appliances clean, I use wipes made specifically for stainless for day to day spot cleaning. It might not be for everyone, but it's a lifesaver for me.

I don't want any of my rooms to be popping, especially the kitchen.

Well right now the only things "popping" in my kitchen are my endless supply of cherry tomatoes

My plethora of jalapenos must be silently communicating with your tomatoes!

I have used the stainless wipes - in fact I have some under the sink right now....a small spray water bottle and a microfiber cloth actually work better and in the long run cheaper. I've tried so many things!

Have you tried Pledge? I like it because I can also use it on other things...and of course use a microfiber cloth I hate multiple cleaning products.
