New From Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet™, the leading manufacturer of high-end outdoor kitchen equipment, announced today at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (K/BIS) the launch of its fully-redesigned collection of outdoor kitchen cabinetry. New styling gives kitchens a sleeker appearance with full-overlay doors and drawers. Interiors are now customizable with the addition of an adjustable- height shelving system. The new cabinets are available April 22 at

“We’ve leveraged our nearly 10 years of expertise in outdoor cabinetry to completely redesign our collection. The only thing that carries over from the former cabinet line is the handle,” said Pantelis A. “Pete” Georgiadis, president of Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. “We’re continuously investing to make outdoor kitchens more enjoyable. The redesigned cabinetry looks great, provides a lot more design flexibility and sets a new standard for outdoor kitchen storage."

The new collection features 29 different styles plus accessories and can be mixed and matched in any combination, offering homeowners the widest number of choices and design flexibility to customize their cabinetry to their own unique outdoor cooking and entertaining needs.

A new adjustable-height shelf system is standard in all 24-inch cabinets, giving homeowners the ability to change a shelf’s vertical placement and further customize their outdoor cabinetry. The system holds up to five shelves within the cabinet; each shelf is 26-inches deep, 18 ½-inches wide and feature sides that are 2 ½-inches tall, ensuring items stay on a selected level. They rest on stainless steel glides that fully extend beyond the cabinet’s opening.

All cabinet doors and drawers now feature a full-overlay styling that covers the entire front of the cabinet, providing a cleaner appearance. As a design option, homeowners will be able to order cabinets with a new louvered door. Wind chains have been added to prevent doors from opening too widely in gusty conditions. Drawers stay shut and weather-tight with the addition of an indentation on the full extension stainless steel glides.

The design of the cabinets gives homeowners the ability to build a free-standing outdoor kitchen virtually anywhere, without having to install them into a wood or masonry framework. Already the fastest installing line of outdoor cabinetry, Kalamazoo’s new Speed Clip technology increases installation speeds by an additional 30 percent.

Each cabinet is built with Kalamazoo’s exclusive weather-tight rain gutter engineering; kitchen linens and cooking and cleaning accessories are kept dry because water is channeled away from the interior.

Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet™, the leading manufacturer of high-end outdoor kitchen equipment, announced today at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (K/BIS) the introduction of its 24-inch Warming Cabinet. An outdoor kitchen first, the new cabinet was inspired by food service professionals and offers homeowners a larger and easier-to-use warm storage space. Its highly-stylized louvered door establishes a new level of design. It will be available April 22 at

“Our warming cabinet brings more freedom to the outdoor kitchen and shatters the old way of storing food outdoors,” said Pantelis A. “Pete” Georgiadis, president of Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. “Now you can keep turkeys, hams, large bowls of dips warm outside. You’re no longer restricted to small, flat hors d’oeuvres."

The new cabinet, with 4.7 cubic feet of warm storage space is unencumbered by the space and height restrictions that are a standard feature of warming drawers.

A series of specialized, adjustable-height warming shelves is at the heart of the cabinet; each sit on stainless steel glides that extend beyond the cabinet’s opening, giving the homeowner access to the entire shelf. Two shelves hold food and can be moved vertically within the cabinet to accommodate different sizes and shapes; each is 26-inches long x 18 ¼-inches wide in size, perforated to allow heat and moisture circulation, and can accommodate a wide variety of plate and platter sizes. It is capable of holding an optional third food shelf.

A separate shelf holds two water trays that retain warmth, radiate moisture, and quickly reheat the cabinet’s interior after a door opening. The bottom shelf holds up to six gel-fuel canisters that maintain an interior temperature of 160-degrees in 30-degree ambient weather.

A specially-designed thermometer ensures homeowners maintain food-safe heat levels within the cabinet.

In another first for outdoor kitchen equipment design, Kalamazoo created a louvered cabinet door. The new look aids cabinet ventilation, keeps out rain, and takes to a new level of style the outdoor kitchen cabinet door.

The 24-Inch Warming Cabinet is built with Kalamazoo’s exclusive weather-tight rain gutter engineering, which channels water away from the interior, keeping it dry It is fabricated by hand from heavy-
gauge stainless steel in Kalamazoo, Mich.
