DuraSnow® is ZLINE’s exclusive non-directional stainless steel finish and it’s a personal favorite of ours here at The Range Hood Store.

You may be wondering what is DuraSnow® stainless steel? What does it have to offer? Is it worth the hype? This blog will answer all of your questions and explain why DuraSnow® appliances are the perfect choice for your kitchen.

What Is DuraSnow Stainless Steel?

This special finish is unlike anything that is on the market. It was created to combat the ongoing problem of stainless steel smudging so easily. One of the biggest complaints that we hear about traditional stainless steel is the smudging and the issues that come with the constant cleaning of it. DuraSnow® Stainless Steel has a non-directional brushed finish, giving it a muted stainless steel look. It has a cloudier shade than stainless steel, which is why it may appear slightly lighter. This special finish is used for countless ZLINE products, so you can achieve a full DuraSnow® ZLINE Kitchen Package! You can purchase ZLINE DuraSnow® appliances at The Range Hood Store!

What is the Difference Between Stainless Steel and DuraSnow® Stainless Steel?

So how is DuraSnow® different from regular stainless steel? Typical stainless steel is more reflective, with a uni-directional finish, compared to DuraSnow®, which is less reflective with a non-directional finish, giving it its fingerprint-resistant property. Both stainless steel and DuraSnow® stainless steel are heat and rust-resistant, so it would be hard to go wrong with either ZLINE finish!

What are the Benefits of ZLINE's DuraSnow® Finish?

One of the greatest benefits of ZLINE’s DuraSnow® Finish is that any scratch made on a DuraSnow® surface can be easily buffed out with one of ZLINE’s buffer pads. ZLINE DuraSnow® appliances are also made with a strong, industrial 304-grade material.

Some more of our favorite benefits include:

  • Fingerprint, direction, and smudge resistant

  • Scratches can be buffed out

  • Longer lifespan than classic stainless steel with maximum durability

  • Most traditional stainless steel is made from 430-grade stainless steel, while DuraSnow® is made from 304-grade stainless steel

  • The lower the grade, the more durable and reliable it will be
