Keeping Things Cool in Your Outdoor Kitchen (Summer Outdoor Kitchen Series Part 5)
Designing an outdoor kitchen isn’t just about firing up the grill and keeping the side dishes warm—what about cold sides and even colder beverages? When you’re choosing appliances for your outdoor kitchen, don’t forget to think about things like refrigeration, beverage dispensing, and ice-making.
Outdoor Cooling: Buy the Brand
Installing outdoor refrigeration cuts down on trips to your main kitchen, giving you more time to entertain, or just relax. Here at K&N Sales, we carry brands like Perlick, Sub-Zero/Wolf, Viking, Scotsman, and U-Line—some of the most trusted names in outdoor appliances. Brands like Viking and Sub-Zero/Wolf manufacture appliances that run the gamut from grills to outdoor refrigeration and are built to withstand the weather. Their outdoor refrigeration solutions are ingenious and include refrigeration, freezers, beverage centers, and wine storage for a fully integrated outdoor kitchen. Other brands specialize in refrigeration, though you may not be as familiar with them. Let’s learn more about Perlick, Scot, and U-Line.
Perlick Outdoor Appliances
Commercial-grade Perlick outdoor appliances feature stainless steel interiors, and unique under-counter design solutions; in fact, there are more than 125 models of outdoor refrigeration solutions from which to choose. Their RAPIDcool forced-air system chills twice as fast as the closest competitor, and Low-E coated, Argon-filled dual-pane glass makes proper outdoor wine storage a reality.
Stop running inside—or worse yet, to the store—to restock ice! Get gorgeous cocktail ice every time with Scotsman brand ice machines. Cubes or nuggets? You decide! Cubes are perfect for standard cocktails and drinks, but the Nugget produces a soft, chewable ice that’s ideal for everything from kids’ drinks to smoothies to margaritas.
U-Line Outdoor Series
Keep the cocktails flowing with the U-Line Outdoor Series of appliances that includes refrigerators, freezers, keg refrigerators, and ice machines. For full outdoor kitchen functionality, you’ll also want to install one or more U-Line outdoor refrigerated drawers.
