Outdoor Kitchens - Ready made or custom

FAQS

Do I need Council approval?
Yes, in some cases.  It is your responsibility to make sure the set-up of your outdoor kitchen complies with local Council regulations, including gas regulations.

Can I install my outdoor kitchen in the open with no shelter?
Yes, our product has full aluminium cabinets that will not rust or expand like other materials on the market.  However, it is recommended to install your outdoor kitchen with some aspect of shelter, as the product may show signs of fading and weathering in an open area.

What does installation involve?
Alfresco Outdoor Kitchens come flat packed and fully pre-drilled.  All cabinets will need to be assembled and doors attached.  We can offer an installation service if requested.

How long until my outdoor kitchen is ready?
If the package you order is in stock, it will leave the day after payment is received.  Custom made outdoor kitchens can take up to 60 days to be shipped.

Should I install a rangehood above my outdoor kitchen?
Rangehoods are recommended but not always necessary in enclosed areas.  Check with your local Council.

Can I hose around the kitchen?
Yes, our outdoor kitchens are full aluminium construction and water will not have any negative affect.

Does my outdoor kitchen require any special maintenance?
To ensure you get the best out of your outdoor kitchen, it is recommended to maintain the aluminium and granite as per our Care and Maintenance Instructions.

Who organises the plumber and electrician for installation?
You will need to organise this with your local tradesmen.

Will the sun discolour my outdoor kitchen?
Granite is a natural stone so it may show signs of fading in direct sunlight.  It is recommended to maintain the granite as per our Care and Maintenance instructions.

Do you offer an installation service?
We can organise an installation service in most parts of New Zealand.  This needs to be included in the quote when ordering your outdoor kitchen.

What type of warranty do you provide?
Alfresco New Zealand supplies a Limited 10 Year Warranty with every outdoor kitchen.
