Kalamazoo Outdoor GourmetT Unveils Outdoor Dishwasher; introducesfirst dishwasher designed to perform outdoors

Remember your last cookout? You and your guests probably carried the plates, pots and pans indoors to be put in the dishwasher. Those days are a thing of the past. Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet™, the leading manufacturer of high-end outdoor kitchen equipment, announced today at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show the introduction of the first outdoor dishwasher specifically designed to work outside and withstand the harshness of the elements; featuring a unique wash system designed to clean dishes that have been sitting outdoors or pots and pans that have been over the heat of a grill fire.

“Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet has always been the innovation leader in outdoor kitchen equipment, bringing to market a number of firsts that change the way people cook and entertain in the outdoors,” said Pantelis A “Pete” Georgiadis, president of Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. “The introduction of the outdoor dishwasher has created the only truly complete outdoor kitchen equipment line, giving homeowners independence from their indoor kitchens.”

At $4,990, the outdoor dishwasher will be available for purchase in summer 2011 through the network of dealers that carry Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet equipment, certified design professionals or directly at

The outdoor dishwasher offers a host of technologies that make doing the dishes after a cookout convenient, fast, and easy:

Flexible. The outdoor dishwasher was designed with an extra large tub to accommodate the special demands that come from cooking and serving meals outdoors. Its adjustable-height dual rack system offers maximum flexibility. Able to be moved up and down to handle some of the biggest pots and serving platters, it features a maximum clearance space of 15 ¼” inches between each rack. It is capable of holding 12 place settings at once, features adjustable tines for more loading flexibility and offers protection for delicate items. The top rack has two adjustable stemware shelves and up to five rows of glassware storage.

Powerful. The outdoor dishwasher’s wash system has highly-focused spray zones that ensure the whole load gets totally clean and eliminates the need for pre-rinsing dishes. Specially-designed spray nozzles maximize the use of minimal amounts of water to target distinct areas within the dishwasher, focusing increased spraying power on hard-to clean items such as cutlery and pots and pans.

Efficient. Green, clean and smart, the outdoor dishwasher features technology that doesn’t waste water. It uses as little as 3.8 gallons in a wash program, ensuring the optimum water level is used for each load. Sensors detect when the quantity of water matches the selected wash program, automatically adjusting water levels even if a flipped-over bowl fills with and reduces some of the available wash water

“Now, every convenience of an indoor kitchen is fully available outdoors,”
said Georgiadis.

The outdoor dishwasher also will be available for viewing at the Kitchen and Bath
Industry Show, April 26 through 28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas.
