The Essential Appliances Needed to Outfit an Outdoor Kitchen in Baltimore

Lynx Professional kitchen

Residents of Baltimore never pass up an opportunity to spend time outside. During the spring and summer months, there’s nothing better than quality time with friends and family, especially if you have an outdoor kitchen at home. If you’re planning a new outdoor kitchen, you’re going to need some top-notch appliances so you can make the most out of your investment and create a space you’ll want to use as much as possible. Here are some of the most essential appliances you’ll need for your outdoor kitchen.

The Grill

Grilling is such an important tradition here in Baltimore that we’re not sure we really have to say much more. However, it’s important to note that you could go many different directions with your choice of grill. You could opt for a typical free-standing grill, which will allow you to move the unit around as needed on your patio. For a more stylish look, however, go for a built-in grill, which will integrate nicely with the rest of your outdoor kitchen architecture. We’ll stay out of the “gas vs. charcoal” debate for now, but if you fancy yourself a grill master, don’t overlook units with extra amenities such as smokers!

The Refrigerator

An outdoor refrigerator is one of the most underrated appliances in the outdoor kitchen. Its main draw is the fact that you won’t have to waste time running back and forth between your indoor kitchen and your patio to retrieve ingredients. You can use your outdoor refrigerator to keep commonly used items and drinks within easy reach. And while nobody enjoys cleaning up after a gathering, you can use your outdoor fridge to store leftovers, making your cleaning work go somewhat more smoothly.

The Add-Ons

The add-on appliances will depend primarily on your lifestyle and how you envision using your outdoor kitchen in the future. Does your family love pizza? A pizza oven might be a great way to spice up your at-home offerings and reduce your reliance on the deliveryman. If integrating a wet bar into your outdoor kitchen design, a blender is a must-have for your entertainment purposes. By examining your lifestyle, you’ll determine which smaller add-on accessories would be best to complement your major appliances and enhance your outdoor kitchen.
