Up Close With Whirlpool's New Sunset Bronze Finish

Bucking the trend of boring boxes, Whirlpool debuted a new finish at Design Week in Milan that combines both individuality and neutrality for cooktops and wall ovens. Called Silver Dawn, the golden metallic color is applied to a floating glass exterior, and features stainless accents.

Silver Dawn combines stainless trim with a golden metallic glass front.

Like its American counterpart, Sunset Bronze, it’s designed to blend with as many kitchen finishes as possible and can easily replace stainless steel for a warmer look.


While Silver Dawn may share a name with a classically ostentatious model of Rolls Royce, the new appliances are anything but baroque.

The convection oven sports automatic cooking modes for selected recipes, including bread and pizza. The full-size cooktop relies on induction, and has a sleek touch-sensitive interface.

Since it’s featured on European appliances, we may not see Silver Dawn in its current form in the U.S. But if you’re interested in exploring similar exteriors, check out new finishes like Whirlpool’s Sunset Bronze, GE’s Slate, and black stainless from LG, Samsung, and KitchenAid.
