The Care Routines Needed for Your Outdoor Kitchen in Takoma Park to Last

SubZero and Wolf outdoor kitchen

During the warm weather months, the outdoor kitchen is one of the most invaluable and beloved spaces in your entire home. It adds beauty, elegance, and much utility, all while allowing you and your family to enjoy the outdoors from the comfort of home. However, its outdoor setting also makes it vulnerable to the whims of Mother Nature. To keep your outdoor kitchen looking its best for many years to come, you’ll have to invest some time and effort into specific care routines. Here are a few habits that you should make when working with your outdoor kitchen!

Cleaning the Grill After Every Use

After cooking your meals, it’s a great idea to use the remaining heat to clean out the inside of the grill. The residual heat helps food particles brush/scrape off of the grates more easily. Taking the time to do this after every use will ultimately make your regular grill cleaning tasks much easier. We recommend deep cleaning your entire grill at least once a year – by brushing and scraping down your grates after use, you’ll save yourself a lot of time and energy later on!

Wipe Down Counters

Counters can be susceptible to stains, especially if they are made with a porous material such as granite or stone. It is a good habit to wipe down your counters whenever there is a spill to avoid staining and wash them more thoroughly with soap and water on a regular basis. Sealing your countertops might be an option if you’re worried about staining, but you’ll still need to clean regularly to ensure they look their best and last as long as possible. Avoid using spray cleaners since these can break down the seal coating over time.

Stainless Steel Care

Stainless steel is a material that makes a striking impression in an outdoor kitchen. In order to keep it beautiful in your space, you should wash it down with soapy water every so often. Take care to wipe following the grain of the metal and dry thoroughly after cleaning. Before a gathering, you can also polish your stainless steel appliances by using a glass cleaner to make them truly sparkle!
