We always recommend that all of your outdoor components be UL Rated for outdoor use, cooking appliances be certified, and all products outdoors be constructed with 304 grade stainless steel. These will provide protection from the elements for the long haul. Grade 430 stainless steel is a widely used product for middle to lower ends products. Where this steel may hold up in certain locales with care, it is absolutely not recommended near swimming pools, brackish, or salt water environments. In most cases when something is more expensive in the BBQ world, that usually means it’s of a higher quality and well worth the money. There are a couple exceptions to the rule though. There are very well-known product brands that are simply priced high because their branded name allows them to do so. Don’t be swayed by name brand. Also, do not mix and match built in appliances. Each manufacture uses a specific stainless steel polish and technique that can be quite noticeable when not using the same brand for the entire project. The only exception would be utilizing a single brand for all the major cooking appliances and a single, opposite brand for all the front cabinet doors and drawers. Having a slightly different finish of stainless steel here is not as noticeable. There are manufactures across the price spectrum that complement one another. Patio Sites Inc has nearly every brand of item on display and our highly trained experts can ensure your project has not only a satisfactory, but amazing appearance.
