Having an outdoor kitchen is a modern luxury that helps create a place for family and friends to gather and enjoy food and fellowship in the backyard. In addition, an outdoor kitchen can add to your home’s value. Just because your outdoor kitchen is made for life outside doesn’t mean you should neglect it. Keep your outdoor kitchen looking great by following these tips.
Treat it Like an Indoor Room
Make your investment last by taking care of your kitchen. You wouldn’t neglect your indoor kitchen—why not treat your outdoor kitchen the same way? Outdoor kitchens have some specific needs, but that doesn’t mean you should ignore kitchen basics like taking out the trash or leaving baking soda in the fridge.
Clean the Grill
Every time you use the grill you should use your grill brush and residual heat to scrape off any bits that are left behind. Leaving food on the grill encourages animals and also makes cleaning and prep take longer the next time you want to use it.
Stainless steel is durable and looks great, and to keep it looking good you’ll want to avoid prolonged contact with hot metal, steel, and iron. This can cause problems like corrosion. Stainless steel is very easy to clean with soap and water, and you’ll want to hand dry to reduce the appearance of water stains. To bring back its shiny finish, use glass cleaner.
Although the outdoor kitchen is made for outdoors, you’ll want to keep it covered with a tarp during the harshest parts of winter. In addition, you’ll need to bring in any chairs for the season.
