Outdoor Grills: Those wanting to up the ante on their backyard "stay-cation" and holiday hospitality should consider Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet's extravagant outdoor kitchen, which is more like an outdoor cooking "resort."
This state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen system is as beautiful as it is functional, as the company leverages its Century-long heritage of sheet metal expertise with custom hand-crafted engineering. The result is top-of-the-line outdoor kitchens that consistently set the standard for quality, performance and innovation.
The company's product line avails homeowners with all the components needed to custom-tailor the complete outdoor kitchen of their dreams — from the best grills to professional outdoor refrigeration to weather-tight cabinets. Homeowners may choose the style that best suits their needs, whether contemporary or classic. All equipment and cabinets are finished in premium stainless steel, and the systems can come with stainless steel counters or custom masonry, stucco, or wood can be integrated into a personalized design. Configurations for the Kalamazoo outdoor kitchen are endless, too, with linear, L-shaped, U-shaped and island-style as just a few of the many possibilities.
Thoughtful features abound in the Kalamazoo kitchens, such as hassle-free grill cleaning, customizable grill cooking surfaces, and flexible slot systems inside cabinet doors for utensils, waste bins and sauce racks. The Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grill (where you can cook with any combination of charcoal, wood or gas) gives home cooks the flexibility to prepare nearly all of the delicious meals served up in favorite restaurants! A cooktop burner can boil lobster or crabs or be used to sautee; a wok burner cooks up delicious stir-fry; a keg tapper holds and dispenses two separate kinds of beer and; for the oenophiles, a wine chiller keeps your favorite vino at the perfect temperature — even if it's 110 degrees outside! Kalamazoo also brings pizza night to a whole other level with its Artisan Fire Pizza Oven component that will produce Old-World quality crust in less than an hour!
Also with a Kalamazoo kitchen there's no need to go running back and forth into the house to grab tools. The system boasts plenty of storage for kitchen utensils, cooking supplies, linens, wood for smoking and much more in weather-tight outdoor cabinets that keep your prized culinary possessions safe and dry no matter what the weather brings.
While a fully loaded system can run around $55,000, the endless array of custom configurations will assure a kitchen — and price point — to meet your needs and duly establish your backyard as THE place where everyone wants to gather.
