Now is the Ideal Time to Invest in Your Outdoor Kitchen

Sub-Zero | Wolf announces $1,750 rebate Outdoor Kitchen Promotion for Sub-Zero, Wolf and Asko Outdoor Products

As the weather is starting to warm up and summer is on the horizon, it is the ideal time to invest in your outdoor kitchen with some exciting rebates. From March 1st, there are new rebates on Sub-Zero, Wolf and Outdoor products.


Outdoor Kitchens Can Finally Live up to the Name

The earliest versions of an outdoor kitchen could hardly be classified as a kitchen. Most designs were simply an extension of a gas grill. When the grill surrendered mobility and was anchored to a natural gas connection, they were supplemented by side burners, surrounds and other accessories that were often indoor fixtures or appliances that had been modified for outdoor use.

In recent years, there have been high-end appliance manufacturers such as Sub-Zero Wolf who have been producing durable versions of almost anything in an indoor kitchen for your outdoor kitchen. Today, you can equip your outdoor kitchen with icemakers, freezers, refrigerators, warming ovens, dishwashers and more. Grills have also become more elaborate with once extravagant features such as low heat smokers and pizza ovens becoming more readily available for your outdoor kitchen. This has created a more formal and defined area to ensure that your outdoor kitchen now lives up to the name.

The Importance of the Right Grill

A grill acts as a cornerstone for any outdoor kitchen. Fortunately, grills now offer the versatility you would expect from a high-end stovetop. According to Molly Kruger, corporate chef at Sub-Zero Group West, consumers are opting for larger grills, but there are plenty of options available.

A great example of this is the 54 inch Wolf Grill, which unlike the 30, 36 and 42 inch models can be ordered exclusively as a built-in. This behemoth delivers 130,000 BTUs and is so large that it is provided with springs to help lift the top made of heavy gauge stainless steel. The springs reduce the apparent weight of the lid by an impressive 50 percent.

Larger size grills aren’t the only growing trend. Modern grill models now provide an array of features and cooking techniques. An increasingly popular feature is a sear plate that is heated by infrared and can provide additional oomph on gas grills. This allows you to caramelize meat quickly can create those professional style grill marks. On Wolf Grills, the sear plate gets hot. On the 54 inch model, the temperature can reach approximately 700º F alone, but the sear plate can raise this temperature to almost 1,000º F. This creates an ultra-seared effect that you would expect at fancy steakhouses. Most cooking experts agree that searing creates more flavor, so a sear plate is an essential feature for serious outdoor kitchen users.

Completing Your Outdoor Kitchen

While the grill is likely to be the star of your new outdoor kitchen, there are many other accessories that can complete your outdoor kitchen. Coolers or ice bins are a popular option for the larger space, but other essentials include an outdoor refrigerator, beverage cooler or dishwasher.

Remember that you’ll need to think about how you will use your new outdoor kitchen. Will you be cooking for your family or do you want to host large summer parties? Will you need to use smaller appliances outside that will need countertop outlets? Will you be using your outdoor kitchen only during the day or after dark? You’ll need to think about these questions to narrow down your options and choose the right appliances to complete your outdoor kitchen.

If you’re thinking about creating an outdoor kitchen for your home, you can explore the options with this collection of grills and other outdoor appliances. You can also speak to a home appliance expert to learn more about Sub-Zero Wolf rebates.
