Outdoor Kitchen Cooktop

So the outside kitchens on the 2019 North Points have gone to this 'stainless hybrid cooktop/grill' for 2019 as opposed to a traditional dual burner stove. I know they've used this on other lines in previous years. I'm curious whether pans (such as cast iron skillets) can be successfully cooked on with this surface. We generally use out outdoor kitchen to cook with pots and pans and wondering if we'll be able to do so with this cooktop. Anyone here have experience with these?

No experience but I don't see why you couldn't. I wouldn't mind swapping out my 2 burner for one of those if I could find where to buy one.

I hope so I was looking forward to the 2 burners as I'm at a seasonal site so I have regular grill but no burners I guess we'll find out I told my dealer I want it changed but that looks pretty nice and should work

We bought an induction cook top for about $40 on Amazon. We've struggled to keep our cast iron pan hot enough to cook when there is wind blowing. We are hoping the induction cook top heats more reliably.

I traded my grill for a two burner cooktop. It’s not an easy fit into the drawer. I have to cut the drawer down and fix up a mount for the stove onto the drawer. It should all work and look ok when I’m done.

I wondered if you got that stove to work. I used the grill first time last weekend. It was just the DW and I so i just pulled it out and cooked a couple of ribeyes. Works good but not easy to clean up

Hi Scott,

I finally got this done. I had to cut about 1 1/2Ē out of the drawer to make this work. I then made a filler plate for the top side and mounted the stove top. I used matte black hammer paint from HD. Yah, it doesnít match well but itís better than other options.

Doesnít look half bad.

I think it looks great! Could you explain where you had to take the 1.5" out of and what you mean by filler plate?

I can't even tell where you've used the black hammer paint...

Itís a weird pic but you see the different colored panel to the right of the stainless top? The opening in the drawer was too wide for the stovetop so I had to fill in the gap. Thereís a plate on the underside and then I cut a filler plate and tack welded that to the undermounted plate.

Gotcha thanks... Where did you end up ordering the stove and wind guard/cover from?

I traded my stock grill for the stovetop with Scott (Cannon). I think the stove tops are about $100 new...not sure about the wind guard.

The suburban two burner cook top is 80 on Amazon but I donít think it has a cover.

Yeah looks like the cover is sold separately...it's a must have for the stove. We're going to try using skillets on the hybrid cooktop to see how it works and decide what to do from there....
