How to Care for Your Outdoor Kitchen, Grant, Nebraska

An outdoor kitchen is a dream come true for those who love to grill, bringing a sense of luxury to your backyard living spaces. While the materials used for these set-ups are usually more rugged than those for your interior kitchen, they do require some regular maintenance to keep up their effectiveness and good looks. Below are a few pointers for doing so.

Maintaining Your Stone Surfaces

Granite countertops are a popular choice for outdoor kitchens, but you might prefer flagstone, quartz, or another manufactured product. While natural stone is incredibly durable, it is susceptible to stains and sun damage, so apply a sealer to the surface every three to five years. Wiping the counters down after each use will keep sauce, grease, and other residues from seeping down into the stone.

Maintaining the Kitchen Appliances

A clean grill delivers a more even distribution of heat, so scrub it out after every use. Remember that the best time to scrape a grill is when it’s still warm, so take a moment to clean it immediately after eating. Then, cover it right away to protect it from the elements.

Stainless steel sinks and kitchen fixtures are highly corrosion resistant, but exposure to high temperatures can compromise their durability. Avoid placing hot pans and dishes directly on stainless steel for extended periods of time, and rinse and wipe down surfaces after every use to prevent water spots and grease buildup.
