Kitchen designers rejoice: Toshiba introduces Stainless Style LCD/DVD combo unit

If you don't have an TV in your kitchen, you probably know someone who does. Finally, someone figured out that maybe it should release a set that matched the most popular kitchen accent: stainless steel. Now you can pair your kitchen appliances with the Toshiba Stainless Style model, which marries a 19-inch LCD with a DVD player.

Beyond its metallic styling (obviously no one's going to make a TV using actual stainless steel), the 19LV612U offers fairly standard specs for an HDTV this size: an HDMI input, component-video port, and built-in ATSC/NTSC/QAM digital tuners, which could come in handy if you don't have a cable connection in your kitchen. The slot-loading DVD player support DivX-format discs—a nice touch, though I don't see many Moms burning DivX movies to watch while they cook.

Toshiba says the Stainless Style combo unit will ship in September for $349.99. Will it inspire a rash of stainless-looking TVs?
