Kalamazoo is Hot, Hot, Hot!

Kalamazoo is Hot, Hot, Hot!

We believe in bringing our clientele the very best products on the market. That’s part of the reason we started this blog—by devoting posts to venerable firms and exciting new products, we can give you solid insight into what’s available, details on options and styles and, hopefully, lots of inspiration. We’ve recently featured Kalamazoo Outdoor Grill in several posts (you can read them here and here) but we’re not the only ones talking about their incredible array of high-end machines. Their grills and pizza ovens have garnered so much press over the last few months that we’d like to share a few of the highlights. You’ll be able to glean additional information about why these products are so important, why they’re worth the money, and why they’re the choice of nationally celebrated chefs like Wolfgang Puck, Stephanie Izard and Rick Bayless. Living in Southern California allows us to entertain year-round, making an outdoor kitchen area a wise—and rewarding—investment. But we don’t just mean rewards of the savory, mouth-watering sort. It’s worth noting that the Wall Street Journal article below is in the real estate section, proving that the quality of your outdoor appliances matters just as much as your indoor appliances when it comes to the value or your home. Now that’s something to chew on.
