Clean as You Cook with this Outdoor Kitchen Sink Station

When it comes to completing any task, we all love efficiency. There’s nothing better than getting into the rhythm of any task, especially when you know that the juice is worth the squeeze. But, like with any routine task, things can become tedious and even sometimes loathsome very quickly. No matter how great the reward is.

Cooking a delicious meal can be very rewarding. You can spend hours in the kitchen cooking for guests. You sit down, enjoy the delightful dinner, sip some of your favorite wine, and enjoy the company of everyone at the table. 

Then, when it is all done, you have to clean up. You have to wash the pots and pans, the dishes, the glasses, the countertops, wipe down the appliances, put leftovers away, and on and on and on. 

Just the thought of it is exhausting and makes you not want to ever cook again. But, what if there was a better way? What if it was easy to clean as you cook with an outdoor kitchen sink station?

Tips to Clean as You Go

Alright, it is time to get down to business. If you have your outdoor kitchen sink (or are thinking about investing in one) then you need to have the proper method down to clean as you go so you can enjoy the sink cabinet – and life – to the fullest. Here are some tips for you to make it happen. 

Tip #1: Grab a big bowl and use it for garbage. It may seem to make more sense to just carry trash over to the garbage can as you cook. But every time you stop what you are doing to walk back and forth to your garbage can, you are wasting precious time – and probably dropping food on the floor. Put a large bowl near your cooking area and toss all your trash in as you cook. You will find that it is more efficient and will keep your kitchen area cleaner. 

Tip #2: Fill your sink with soapy water. Then, as you cook, toss in all your dirty dishes, utensils, pans, and more. One, you will know where everything is. And, two, soaking in the soapy water will make them much easier to manage when it comes time to scrub them clean. 

Tip #3: Keep a spray bottle of soapy water handy. As you prepare to cook your meal – and as you cook – spray down any spills that happen. This will keep things from getting dried up and difficult to remove later. It’s easy and convenient. And because the bottle is right there nearby, you don’t think twice about quickly spraying down a mess. 

Tip #4: Anything that falls on the floor should be picked up immediately. Otherwise, stepping in it can lead to an even bigger mess later. 

Tip #5: Slow down. Cooking is supposed to be enjoyable. If you have set up an outdoor kitchen, then you likely did so because you would like to spend time in your backyard oasis with those you love. Sure, cooking quickly means you can spend more time with them. But cooking slowly means you can just enjoy the whole process. Socialize, cook, and even consider making it a group effort! Besides, when you cook slower, you are less likely to make a mess. You will spend more time cleaning as you go, being deliberate about your actions, and wiping things down as you go. 

Who knows, you may just find that when you slow down the way you cook, you actually enjoy the process of cooking more. And, your food may taste better, too!
