So we decided that the handiest way for you, our customers, to get the most out of our products, would be to give you some great tips for caring for our phenomenal grills, pizza ovens, fire pits, and so much more. Nothing makes us happier than when our customers get what they want, so let’s make sure you keep on getting it!

 

What’s In Your Grill?

 

This article from Taste of Home lays out in a clear and comprehensive way how to care for different types of grill, depending on material. By taking proper care of your grill, it’ll stay with you for that much longer – but it will also provide you and your family with cleaner, healthier, better-tasting food!

 

 

Protection From the Elements

 

If your outdoor kitchen includes metal components or countertops (even non-metal ones), it’s important to invest in a protective cover that will shield them from weather such as rain, hail, sleet, snow, and even direct sun, all of which can contribute to rust. Outdoor countertops can become faded or damaged faster due to exposure, so this form of protection is worthwhile. Also applying a sealant will be extremely helpful! This will be particularly important in the winter months if you live in a cold-weather climate.

 

Mosquitos and Ants and Spiders, Oh My!

 

To keep insects out of your outdoor kitchen area, one smart idea is to install fans around to prevent them from bothering you or your guests. If your concern is your food or your belongings, vinegar has shown to be an effective deterrent for insects such as ants and spiders, whereas citronella candles and torches can protect you and your family or guests from mosquitos in the evenings while you enjoy your outdoor space.

 

 

Storage Can Help

 

Take advantage of our dry storage as a useful addition to your outdoor kitchen, not only as a useful solution to protect from insects and other pests that may be after your grilling goodies but also as a sleek-looking addition to any backyard design! This will help you keep your cooking area cleaner and more organized, as well as protecting your food. While you’re at it, take a look at some of our other luxurious backyard additions such as fire pits, heaters, outdoor refrigerators, and more.
