I had an avocado refrigerator that we just recently got rid of (after 35 years). It was in the garage for the last 15 years of it's life - but it kept on tickin' even in the hot Las Vegas summers!!
BTW....I felt the same way about stainless steel, but ended up buying one because my husband really wanted stainless. We have discovered "Sheila Shine" to keep it free of fingerprints. So for those of you who hate the stainless because of that, you might want to give it a try.
