Kitchenaid Outdoor Architect Series Clean lines, tubular handles and weather-resistant stainless steel make these appliances a solid choice for design buffs and no-nonsense cooks. The line includes grills, bar carts, a fridge and even an ice maker ($1,299 for a built-in bar to $5,399 for a 48-inch grill; 800-422-1230).
