Is Black the New Black?

For a very long time, stainless steel has been the standard for kitchens. It is the appliance color of choice for selling a home quickly.

Now, a few manufacturers, KitchenAid, LG, and Samsung, are introducing black stainless steel. The claim is that it mixes with stainless and is poised to knock stainless steel of the throne. 

I am not so sure that a mix of appliance colors will make a kitchen work.

At all. Will using black stainless make a kitchen with mixed appliances look more cohesive?

Or will it just look more like when your blacks don't match? 

What do you think? Is black the new black? Or, more precisely, is black the new stainless?
