Must-Have Appliances in Your Outdoor Kitchen
An outdoor kitchen is a great investment in your home. If you’re thinking about expanding your kitchen into your backyard to enjoy nature, here are our recommendations for the appliances you need.
Outdoor Grill – A grill is an essential part of any outdoor kitchen. If you’re designing a full kitchen, look at premium grills that give you more options. You’ll have a safer cooking experience that feels like luxury. High-end grills come with smart technology that let you keep the cooking temperature at the perfect level. You can adjust the temperature from your phone, letting you enjoy your party without standing over a grill all night. If your grill has a flat top griddle or power burner, you have even more cooking options.
Vent Hood -A vent hood is important to safety and performance. Vent hoods remove cooking odors, heat, steam, and smoke. Although your backyard may be more open and ventilated than your indoor kitchen, installing a vent hood over your grill can help keep everyone, especially the chef, more comfortable on those hot, humid days when the wind isn’t moving.
Refrigerator – Every kitchen needs a refrigerator, and your outdoor kitchen isn’t complete without one. You want to be able to safely store meat and other food products until you’re ready to cook. When you’re entertaining, you’ll want easy access to ice, drinks and condiments. Having a refrigerator outside will cut down on traffic into your home, keeping your floors cleaner too. It’s just convenient.
Drink or Wine Cooler – Outdoor bar appliances can give you some great ways to keep drinks at the right temperature without a lot of foot traffic through your cooking space. From ice makers to kegerators, look for specialty coolers that give your outdoor kitchen more functionality during dinner.
Custom Cabinetry – Cabinets are categorized as fixtures in real estate talk, but they are a vital part of any kitchen, indoors or out. Your cabinets give you a place to store items you need to cook without having everything on your counter. Choosing custom cabinetry lets you install cabinets that fit your space instead of designing a space around cabinets.
