Outdoor Kitchen / July 13, 2018 / Rosamonde Laliberte
It used to be that outdoor entertaining conjured up the familiar image of the picnic lunch at the park. You only needed a picnic basket thermos paper plates and plastic utensils. Or if you wanted to be able to host an outdoor luncheon or dinner you would toss some items on a barbecue pit out in the backyard and flip burgers and hotdogs. Cooking on a grill is a great way to entertain outdoors. However it is a nuisance to have to go back and forth from the kitchen to the patio. That is way outdoor kitchens have become more and more popular.
Sooner or later summer comes to an end. I dont know about you but I love to grill in the winter too. Try a toe kick heater. A toe kick heater is built into the bottom of the grill structure to keep your feet warm in the winter. Just as an umbrella sleeve will keep you comfortable in the summer a toe kick heater will let you cook outside all winter long. The subtle innovative design will allow you to stand by the grill until the food is well done. (Remember heat rises. Toe kick heaters will not only keep your feet warm but also make sure you dont freeze anything else off either.)
It creates a second kitchen Since most outdoor kitchens include a grill sink and mini refrigerator it will come in handy in the event that your main kitchen is out of commission. Outdoor kitchens can help you get through a plumbing emergency power outages (if you have an electric stove in the main kitchen) and a kitchen remodel. If the main kitchen is a mess of epic proportions and you just cant face cleaning it before dinner break out the paper plates and napkins and head outside.
