"The burners built into the grill aren′t always powerful enough to be effective, and they can be too close to the grill to allow the use of a full-sized pot," says Laurie Haefele of Haefele Design. For a more versatile solution, consider a plug-in induction burner that you can use indoors or out.
Vent Hood. If your cooking space is close to the house or under an enclosure you may need a range hood to remove smoke and cooking odors from the space. Some come equipped with halogen lighting.
Another overlooked fact: consider your home´s resale value. If you`re going to the expense of including high-end grills, surfaces and appliances outside, don′t neglect complementary features such as sinks or dishwashers, task lighting (if only for safety) and dimmers, ceiling fans and awnings to keep the sun and heat at bay. And don′t forget to include comfortable seating.
Steam Ovens. "As people try to eat healthier foods, we are seeing more steam ovens being installed in new kitchens," Trivisonno says. Relying solely on super-heated steam to cook foods, these ovens require no fats, oils or other unhealthy additions when preparing a meal. About the size of a microwave—and built into a wall cabinet—these flexible appliances can steam fish and veggies, keep cooked foods warm and moist, and even proof bread dough.
