Microwaves not pigment-challenged

Latest appliance to join the color-crazed appliance trend


The way manufacturers are splattering color all over home appliances, you'd think they'd seen Pleasantville one too many times. We've seen transformations in everything from stoves and refrigerators to washing machines and even personal safes.

So we're curious why it's taken so long for them to get around to that staple of every house, apartment, condo and dorm room: the microwave. But Whirlpool is trying to make up for lost time with its "Max" ovens, which Popgadget says are available in black, silver, baby blue and raspberry red. They also sport a non-traditional casing of rounded corners and control panels on top.

We hope only that Samsung exercises some restraint when it joins the trend.
