In Featured Post by Platinum Pools

Since the days of food channels showing how much fun it is to cook outdoors, many homeowners look for a way to enjoy their backyards, especially in the summertime.  The days of having a hibachi or a gas grill are converting into a more elaborate, more accessible place to cook. When it’s time to have an outdoor kitchen, we are not talking about the grill alone. 

An outdoor kitchen is a kitchen outdoors.  Think about some of the accessories you need to make your outdoor kitchen convenient and comfortable:


You may want to look at these accessories that will keep your refreshments cold and ready:

Bar Caddy

A bar caddy includes an ice bin with removable lid and condiment tray.  The unit, including hinges, handles, and frame, is from a commercial 304 grade, 20-gauge stainless steel. Other accessories include a removable condiment holder, external flag hinges for easy removal.  When not in use, the bar caddy is easy to clean thanks to a drain hole in the center.     

Drop in Ice Chest

It is an excellent addition to your Outdoor kitchen, especially if you are looking to entertain in style. Like the Bar Caddy, it has a drain and a condiment tray. The unit has a heavy duty 304 Stainless Steel lid and galvanized steel construction and will keep your beverages and condiments cold.


Standard Refrigerator

Has an idyllic space-saving design to keep your food and drinks cold.  It comes with a standard 12oz can beverage dispenser integrated into the stylish reversible stainless-steel door.

Premium Fridge

If you are the main chef in your castle, then this stainless-steel fridge is the one for your outdoor kitchen.  It contains three adjustable storage shelves, comfortable to fit meats, drinks, and side dishes.  Your food and drinks will stay cold thanks to its self-closing, sealed door.  The internal digital LED control panel to measure temperatures between 23 to 68 degrees.  The front internal and external fans help to keep the temperature consistent.  The reversible door has a full-length handle. 



Whether it’s a gas tank or cleaning products, it is essential to have a storage area in your outdoor kitchen:

Paper Towel Dispenser

It is good to have paper towels handy with a Paper Towel Dispenser.  It is a fully sealed cabinet that allows you to have paper towels at your fingertips.  It endures the outdoor elements thanks to the 430 stainless steel construction and features an easy to open one-piece handle.   The cabinet holds a full-sized paper towel roll.

Door/Drawer Combo

When it comes to storage, the door/drawer combo is your best bet.  The door offers access to the inner part of the island while the drawers provide space for items such as spices and barbecue utensils.  


Double Access Door
