Outdoor BBQ Upgrade: Benefits of Stainless Steel Doors

June 12, 2012

Outdoor BBQAre you upgrading your outdoor BBQ during your home remodel? Have you thought about what type of doors you’ll select? Although it might seem like a minor decision, stainless steel doors have a number of important benefits, which is why a number of clients have chosen them as part of their landscaping.

As we shared last fall, stainless steel has become a common trend for the kitchen. The reasons certainly apply to an outdoor BBQ as well. Stainless steel is known for:

  • A long life span
  • Being easy to clean
  • Providing a barrier against rust and other contaminates that harbor germs and bacteria

Because an outdoor BBQ is outside, it’s exposed to the elements even more than a kitchen, which is why it’s important to select a material that can hold up against rust, germs and bacteria and is easy to clean.

Those aren’t the only reasons to consider stainless steel doors, though. Here are additional benefits to stainless steel doors for you to consider:

  • They are heat proof and corrosion resistant
  • Most outdoor BBQs with these doors have the option to add shelving, giving you even more space around the actual grill
  • They match a number of add-ons, such as smoker oven towers
  • They’re waterproof, protecting your grill (and anything else housed in the BBQ) from the weather
  • They can withstand bumps and crashes from furniture, soccer balls and kids
