Outdoor Entertaining Spaces
Outdoor Kitchens and Outdoor Entertaining SpacesOutdoor entertaining spaces and outdoor kitchens on Long Island and the Hamptons are in high demand at Kitchen Designs by Ken Kelly’s New York showrooms. We are the exclusive Long Island dealer of Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet, a high-end outdoor cooking appliance manufacturer that has perfected weather-tight stainless steel cabinetry and outdoor cooking appliances. We also carry the popular Sub-Zero/Wolf and Lynx brands of barbecue grills, outdoor cooking equipment, and outdoor refrigeration. Kitchen Designs offers hybrid grills, pizza ovens, gaucho grills, outdoor refrigeration, and outdoor dishwashers. We can build you a full outdoor kitchen or offer an à la carte selection of the pieces you prefer. The pizza ovens can be freestanding or built into your masonry, and we are happy to work with your landscape architect on the project. Our clients find that these outdoor entertaining spaces add tremendous value to their homes and are a perfect place to create lasting memories with family and friends. Your backyard will feel like a resort, and entertaining outdoors will be memorable for all!
Hybrid Fire GrillsThe hybrid fire grills are the only gas grills that let you burn wood, charcoal, and gas at the same time. This is a seriously powerful, professional-grade gas barbecue grill that also cooks with charcoal and wood. You easily open a drawer to change fuels, and when empty, the special perforations and angled design of the hybrid fire grilling drawer diffuses the heat from the burners for convenient gas-only cooking. If you desire an authentic live-fire cooking experience, simply place a bed of charcoal or wood in the hybrid drawer.
Pizza Ovens: Free Standing or Built Into MasonryImagine cooking great artisan pizzas right in your backyard. You can build it into your masonry, or choose our free-standing stainless steel countertop unit you can put on a cart (sold separately) or on your outdoor kitchen counter. This gas-fired pizza oven has a large open flame that mimics the heat of a wood-fired pizza oven, but gives you the control and responsiveness a wood-fired pizza oven is missing with individually controlled deck and ceiling burners. The countertop design requires no installation, and you can bake a Neapolitan-style pizza in less than three minutes. See our 12 year old make a pizza.
Outdoor RefrigerationWe have outdoor refrigerators and freezers in several widths that hold the perfect temperature, even when it is 100 degrees outside. The outdoor wine chillers are engineered to protect your fine wine collection from light, heat, vibration and temperature fluctuations. Our keg tappers allow you the luxury of enjoying a draft beer in seconds, and our outdoor ice makers will make up to 55 pounds of ice a day.
Weather-Tight Stainless Steel Cabinetry
Our line of stainless steel weather-tight outdoor cabinetry has rain gutter technology that channels water away from the inside of the cabinet, keeping interiors and their contents dry. Our clients have been thrilled with the ability to store linens, spices, dinnerware, and cookware outdoors without the fear of items getting wet and damaged because of water.
Gaucho GrillsNewest is the Gaucho Grill. It is an Argentinian-style wood-fired grill whereby the intensity of the heat is controlled by raising and lowering the grill rack above the wood fire. Great flavor is achieved when you use the 30-inch spoked wheel to raise and lower your food for the perfect barbecue flavors. You can keep your food high above the fire when you want lower-temperatures, or you can lower the grill rack for searing heat. See our Outdoor Kitchen Gallery.
