Outdoor Kitchens


USA: Outdoor Kitchens: Outdoor Kitchen Manufacturers





Outdoor kitchens are a grander development of the humble barbecue. They can incorporate many of the features of an indoor kitchen, but are designed to withstand exposure out of doors. The appliances are normally made of stainless steel, and can incorporate grills fuelled by charcoal, wood, or gas. Hybrid grills are available, which can use a combination of these fuels.


In addition to grills, outdoor kitchens can include wood fired ovens, refrigerators, ice chests, seating and dining areas, cocktail centers, and auto-rising flat-screen televisions. 




The following leading bath faucet manufacturers have comprehensive websites, with information on all aspects of outdoor kitchens, including online catalogs, colors and materials for outdoor kitchens, and care and maintenance of outdoor kitchens.


Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, run by Geoffrey Bullard, has its roots in Kalamazoo Sheet Metal, founded by his great grandfather Lewis Bullard in 1906. Lewis Bullard invented the outdoor kitchen; he also invented one of the first slot machines (the Mighty Kalamazoo) and the first folding daybed. Kalamazoo grills, which are made from laser-cut stainless steel, and can burn charcoal, wood and gas, are described as being built like tanks. Customer grills have survived the fiercest hurricanes, and have been used to feed the neighbourhood for weeks in the aftermath.


Cal Flame. Cal Flame is a division of Cal Spas, based in Pomona, California. It supplies a wide range of outdoor kitchens. These range from simple barbecue units to luxurious outdoor kitchens including built-in seating areas, a fireplace, and an auto-rising 42-inch plasma outdoor television. Cookers include two and four burner equipment, with infrared backburners for optional rotisserie cooking. Drop-in cocktail centers and ice bins are available. The island base can accommodate refrigeration and warming drawers, and an optional cabana top can be provided over the dining area.
