High-quality outdoor kitchen equipment is exactly what you need to be able to cook well in your patio. There are all sorts of equipment available to buy, and many companies sell it, both online and in brick-and mortar stores. Luxury is the key.
For many people, the grill is still the most important part of an outdoor kitchen. Grills are available in several different configurations. There are simple gas grills, but few charcoal-only grills in patio kitchens. Most people opt for large, multi-fuel grills. There are dual-fuel models, which can cook with either natural gas or propane. Along with the gas, these giants can cook with charcoal and wood as well. Some outdoor kitchens have two big grills.
Weather-Proof Pizza Ovens
The cook will have even more options with a few other appliances. The cook-top cabinet is one piece of equipment for the kitchen. It allows you to cook side dishes, or even a one-dish meal for the whole family. Pizza ovens are a luxury in outdoor kitchen equipment that you might never consider. These ovens are designed to be fully weather-proof. You can also buy a full-sized oven for your patio kitchen. These are fairly new to the market, but if you have them, you can bake anything from a casserole to a cake. Lobster boil pits are good not only for cooking lobsters but also for crab, crayfish, and shrimp. You can also deep-fry in them. You can stir fry in wok cook tops.
Fridges And Other Cooling Equipment
Refrigerators are another important type of outdoor kitchen equipment. People who have outdoor kitchens like the elaborate gourmet refrigerators. These stainless steel wonders offer uniform temperature and are energy efficient. Their interiors are also done in stainless steel, and they have racks for commercial fryer chilling drinks glasses and mugs. If you prefer a smaller variety of refrigerator, there are the under-counter ones, too. These come in regular refrigerators, refrigerators with drawers or glass doors, or simple refrigerated drawers.
There is other cooling equipment available, too. Beverage storage is a big consideration in planning an outdoor kitchen. You can get outdoor wine chillers, keg tappers, and beverage centers which combine wine and soft drink storage with a keg tapper. Outdoor freezers can also be bought to store your food until you are ready to use it. There is one problem with outdoor refrigeration, though. If you get an ice maker, it might not work so well if you are in a very hot climate. The temperature in the area around the ice maker needs to be around 70 degrees if it is to work properly.
Cabinets are important items of outdoor kitchen equipment. All the cabinets should be weather-tight. They should have some system to drain off water so that it does not stand on top of the cabinets or cabinet doors. If you want luxury and convenience, you will want all the specialty cabinets. There are special cabinets that have warming drawers so that you can preheat your plates. There are also cabinets with tilt-in trash cans and ones with cutting boards.
