What Are Some Outdoor Kitchen Materials?

Are you thinking about installing an outdoor kitchen on your patio? If so, you’re probably wondering about what type of materials you should use. While there is no real wrong answer, there are benefits and drawbacks to each of the main outdoor kitchen materials.

  • Stainless Steel – Steel is a professional restaurant-quality kitchen material that is sanitary and very structurally sound. Steel won’t melt or discolor when touched with an extremely hot dish or pan right off the grill—and it’s also far less susceptible to water damage. However, stainless steel gets very hot while in direct sunlight because of its high level of heat conduction.
  • Concrete – Like steel, concrete outdoor kitchens are less susceptible to rain and moisture. They are also very easy to clean. However, concrete is more porous than steel and other materials, which means it needs to be occasionally sealed and waxed in order to keep moisture out.
  • Granite – Granite is much less porous of a material than concrete, meaning it requires less maintenance in the long run. While it is very scratch-resistant, some of the lighter shades can stain. Granite countertops do look great with a stone-sided base and are a great match for most patios!
