What Are The Best Zephyr Outdoor Kitchen Appliances for Your Summer Sanctuary?

Designing an outdoor kitchen requires a lot of the same thought and components as the indoor kitchen. This includes location, outdoor kitchen appliances, and plumbing. Additionally, electrical components, cabinetry, and ventilation are equally important.

Many homeowners blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. This primarily centers around the kitchen. Undoubtedly, what used to be an afterthought in indoor kitchen design, the range hood is now the centerpiece when planning a new kitchen layout. Additionally, your range hood is a critical component when selecting kitchen appliances. We’re seeing this trend in the outdoor kitchen and are providing consumers with powerful outdoor range hoods and outdoor refrigeration solutions.

The Cypress Wall and Spruce Insert outdoor kitchen vents by Zephyr feature increased depth, increased ventilation power, and new features to accommodate outdoor use. Specifically, the range hoods withstand extreme heat and moisture. And the Presrv™ Outdoor Beverage Cooler, Presrv™ Outdoor Kegerator & Beverage Cooler, or Presrv™ Outdoor Refrigerator Drawers by Zephyr are the perfect complement to the outdoor kitchen. Altogether they provide endless entertainment to guests throughout the seasons.

Do I Really Need Outdoor Kitchen Ventilation?

Outdoor cooking has transitioned to outdoor entertaining, and guests are interacting and eating in closer proximity to the barbecue. Albeit with more exposure to smoke, grease, and odors. If the outdoor grill is located under a combustible covered structure, a powerful outdoor range hood is necessary. Often times, your state’s building codes may require a hood be installed.

Outdoor hoods function the same as they do indoors. As a matter of fact, they extract and filter all unnecessary components from the air while keeping the outdoor kitchen, furniture — and your guests! — clean and grease-free. Including a range hood in the beginning of the outdoor kitchen build-out will be more cost effective than waiting until later.

Cold Drinks An Arms-Reach Away For Your Outdoor Soiree With Outdoor Refrigeration

Complete your outdoor entertaining experience with a Zephyr Presrv® product. Certainly, the outdoor fridge, outdoor kegerator, or outdoor beverage cooler will complement the outdoor kitchen. Firstly, outdoor refrigerators are designed to keep everything inside cold despite the temperature outside. Temperatures outdoors can oscillate drastically from morning to night and vary widely from freezing cold to blazing hot. Furthermore, refrigerators are built to consistently maintain cold temperatures despite the unstable temperature of the outside environment. The Zephyr Presrv™ Outdoor Beverage cooler is built with corrosion-resistant, 304-grade stainless steel. This is durable enough for outdoor use throughout the year.

If wine gets too warm, it ages faster, and the heat can distort the flavors. Additionally, heat can also ruin the wine completely, which you won’t realize until you open the bottle. Zephyr Presrv® Wine & Beverage Coolers, Kegerators, and Refrigerators come standard with PreciseTemp™ and Active Cooling Technology. This provides temperature stability and even cooling throughout the unit.
