Having an outdoor kitchen is a lot like having a pool – you may not need one, but it sure makes your backyard experience more enjoyable! An outdoor kitchen provides easily accessible food and drink situations, a functional area for people to gather, and adds a beautiful aesthetic to your backyard. Of course, with anything important, it’s best to take your time figuring out how you want your custom outdoor kitchen to look as well as what sort of appliances and accessories you’ll want to include. Because we know designing a custom outdoor kitchen may be overwhelming, our experts at Grand Appliance & TV found 4 essential items to give your outside culinary space style and versatility
1. Get Grilling
A grill is the obvious, no-brainer for this list, but choosing the right grill can make all the difference in your outdoor experience – even if you’re not a grilling enthusiast. For example, if you entertain often, a larger grill can cut cooking time and allow you to serve hot food to more guests at once. Some even have a side burner that allows you to cook sides and other items reducing trips back to the kitchen. Call or chat with us for tips if you’re not sure on grill types, sizes, fuels, or any other grill consideration.

2. Fresh Out the Fridge
No outdoor kitchen is really complete without a refrigerator to keep your food and drinks at just the right temperature while you spend time outside. An outdoor fridge is also the perfect sidekick to your grill, making it easy to grab a cold one without having to step far away from your grill master duties. Whether it’s keeping snacks chilled for your guests or providing beverages to quench your thirst, an outdoor refrigerator is a must-have in any custom outdoor kitchen.
3. Perfect Your Pizza
If you are a lover of all things Italian food and can never have enough ‘za, placing a pizza oven in your backyard would be a great addition to your custom outdoor kitchen. These powerful machines make such authentic-tasting pizza pies, you’ll be shouting “delizioso!” with every bite. Of course, if you can’t justify purchasing a pizza oven solely for making the perfect pizza, you’ll be happy to know you can cook up steak, fish, vegetables, and even more in one. So, if you’re looking to make a statement in your outside kitchen area, a pizza oven will boldly stand out among your other appliances.
4. Taste from the Tap
While a bottle or can of your favorite brew is always a treat, many would say that the tastiest beer comes straight out of the tap. So then why wouldn’t you just drink from the tap? With the help of a kegerator/beer dispenser now you can! Never settle for less by customizing your outdoor kitchen with a beer dispenser that has craftmanship components that’ll make staying home taste like going out.
