Maintaining Your Outdoor Kitchen

An outdoor kitchen is an investment. Just like the rest of your investments, don’t you want to ensure that it maintains its value? Wouldn’t you protect that investment the same way you do your home? You certainly put in a lot of effort on upkeep for your home as it is necessary. The same rule applies to an outdoor kitchen. Being outdoors every day all day will have serious effects on your outdoor kitchen if not maintained properly.

With the incredible UV rays we have here in Saudi Arabia, we first recommend using a cover for your outdoor kitchen when it’s not in use. By utilizing a weatherproof cover, your outdoor kitchen will not be exposed to all of the elements every single day and will not begin to show signs of aging nearly as quickly. While the outdoor kitchens installed by Backyard Middle East are made of only the highest quality materials, they can’t do everything. Maintenance by the owner is an absolute must.  Remember to protect your investment.

Secondly, clean off your outdoor kitchen. Make certain to use water that is not rich in minerals! By using treated water, you’re outdoor kitchen can be cleaned and wiped off without leaving discoloring minerals that are often found in well water/ground water. Again, don’t you want your outdoor kitchen, which you spent so much time and money on acquiring, to look its absolute best all of the time? Don’t forget that we offer several methods of cleaning as well as cleaning solvents that will leave all the surfaces of your outdoor kitchen sparkling clean.

An outdoor kitchen left out to withstand the elements without cover, and never being maintained properly overall will begin to look years beyond its age no matter how high quality or tough the materials are that it’s made of. Owner maintenance is the key to keeping your outdoor kitchen as a staple of beauty and an area of escape for you and your guests. By properly maintaining your outdoor kitchen, it will remain a beautiful, sparkling gathering area for everyone for many, many years to come.

Choosing Your Outdoor Kitchen's Grill

When adding an outdoor kitchen to your backyard, one of the most important decisions you can make pertains to what type and manufacturer of grill you want implemented. There are numerous brand names, yet there are only really 2 different types; charcoal or gas. Choosing the correct grill can literally make or break your outdoor kitchen.

Think about how you want your outdoor kitchen to be utilized first. This will more than likely help you to answer the question as to which type of grill do you want, charcoal or gas. If you are looking to have a seamless experience with cooking and preparing food, then you more than likely are going to want to go with the gas grill. Gas grills are great for their easiness to operate. With just the turn of a knob and the click of a button, you’re ready to grill. You won’t have to spend time babysitting the coals, checking the temperature fluctuations and creating venting throughout the cooking process. Charcoal grills can be utilized, but only for the most experienced grilling masters on an outdoor kitchen. It is important to remember that you can always purchase a smaller grill on the side for smoking and other less frequently utilized cooking methods.

As for which brand of grill manufacturer to select, it’s imperative to look into the quality of the grill. Due to your grill needing to be capable of withstanding the elements, you should lean more toward a stainless steel grill. Ensure the grill is 304, 16 gauge stainless steel construction, the industry standard so you know that it is a tried and proven grill for maintaining its exterior even while withstanding the elements day in and day out. By fully researching several grills, you will have a much better idea of what you’re getting into.
