8 Benefits of an Outdoor Kitchen


  1. Outdoor living areas are good for your mental health. Fresh air and sunshine have been scientifically proven to boost your mood and lower anxiety. People who cook outside receive more of these, and as such, get a good boost to their mental health.
  2. Your energy bills will be lower, because the heat from cooking outside won’t raise your home’s temperature. This means your air conditioner won’t have to work as hard.
  3. An outdoor kitchen makes it easier to eat outside during the summer, because it cuts down on transportation time between where the food is prepared and where it will be eaten.
  4. Outdoor living areas make throwing parties a breeze. This is especially true for summer barbecues, birthday parties, and pool parties.
  5. Cooking outside usually (not always) equals eating healthier. When eating outside, most people think of meat and fresh vegetables with limited starches.
  6. Outdoor living areas expand your home’s overall living space so it seems less cramped and more spacious.
  7. An outdoor kitchen increases the value of your home, which is a huge bonus if you plan to sell at any point in the future.
  8. The smells of cooking remain outside. While most people love the smell of food cooking, nobody loves the smells of onions or raw fish.


Where do outdoor barbeque range hoods come into play?

Like any indoor kitchen, a range hood is a electrical that cannot be skipped, as it helps filter and ventilate unwanted grease, food particles and odor, maintaining a safe, breathable and eco-friendly environment for homeowners. In an outdoor kitchen, it’s imperative to equip appliances with a range hood, particularly when grilling.


While residual air is already outside, smoke can build up inside of the grill if not properly expelled from the hood, clinging to clothes and creating an uncomfortable breathing environment for guests while entertaining. Additionally, patios with a canopy or roof can also be damaged, as the steam, smoke and grease can cause buildup if not circulated immediately.
