It might seem obvious, but outdoor kitchens can do practically everything that an indoor kitchen can these days. The difference isn’t in the capabilities or even the quality of the appliances (yes, outdoor kitchens have appliances, not just grills). The difference between the indoor and outdoor variety of kitchens is in the kinds of punishment that they receive. Indoor appliances from the cooktop to the refrigerator can sit safely in a temperature controlled environment free from the elements. Outdoor appliances have to contend with extremes of temperatures, rain, snow, and a lot of sun. They also have to hold up to the environmental factors of the typical backyard. Lawn fertilizers, swimming pool chemicals, and bird droppings are highly corrosive and can easily damage these items. Simply put, outdoor kitchen has to be heartier and far more durable than anything put in the indoors.
