What Really Is DuraSnow® Stainless Steel?

What Really Is DuraSnow® Stainless Steel?


3 minute read

When we thought stainless steel couldn't get any better, ZLINE proved us wrong. ZLINE’s unique DuraSnow® finish is one of the hottest topics this summer. With all this talk, what even is DuraSnow®? 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.

Scratch and fingerprint resistant

Scratches and fingerprints are inevitable on almost all appliances. Kids running around the house with sticky fingers, animals jumping up and down scratching the sides - these cosmetic flaws will age your appliances quickly. What if we told you there was a way to prevent the visibility of these flaws? ZLINE has come up with a solution - DuraSnow®. This non-directional brushed finish is not only scratch-resistant but fingerprint resistant as well making it child and animal friendly. The premium-grade stainless steel that DuraSnow® is made of combats the everyday wear and tear of daily life, keeping your appliances looking brand new!

Outdoor Approved

ZLINE's  DuraSnow® is not only a durable finish but a sturdy one as well! The industrial 304-grade material can overcome whatever the weather may bring- rain, snow, or harsh temperatures! The versatility of ZLINE DuraSnow® appliances is one of the many reasons customers are drawn to it, as it can be used indoors or outdoors, meeting your specific needs.

Multiple Options

Don't worry, ZLINE's DuraSnow®'s finish is not limited to just one appliance. This unique finish has a wide variety of availability. From Ranges, Rangetops, and Range Hoods, to Sinks and Dishwashers, there are many options to choose from so that you can find the perfect DuraSnow® suite to create your dream kitchen.


What color is DuraSnow® stainless steel

The beautiful silver metal used for stainless steel is also the same base metal used for DuraSnow®. DuraSnow® 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 looking.

Main differences 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?

  • 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

Regardless of whether your favorite part is the scratch and fingerprint-resistant property, the availability and many options, or the versatility, the ZLINE DuraSnow® finish is the perfect option for your kitchen appliances.

That will wrap up our take on the ZLINE DuraSnow ® finish. Make sure to follow us on all of our socials for updates from The Range Hood Store!
