dishwashers and outdoor appliancesSpring and fall are the two main seasons when our clients come to us for outdoor kitchens and outdoor appliances. This  year our top brand, Kalamazoo, announced the world’s first dishwasher approved for use in outdoor kitchens. Gone are the days of dragging dishes from the kitchen to the yard. The unit is equipped with special sprayers and cleaning zones designed to handle the toughest cleaning challenges resulting from cooking outdoors. The tub is large and the racks are adjustable to accommodate larger dishes and serving pieces. We will have these units available beginning in the summer of 2011.  The unit base price is $4,990. The luxury of Kalamazoo’s weather tight cabinetry coupled with the ability to wash and keep dinnerware and cookware outdoors is absolutely perfect!

If you want a true grilling treat, our friend, Kalamazoo’s own Russ Faulk, just released the most amazing new grilling book. It is available at Amazon, Cook:Out – Fresh Ingredients, Fresh Air, Fresh Flavors from the Grill
… I’ve made several recipes and they all are amazing!
