Kenyon and Sunset Bay Outdoor Partner to Elevate the High-Rise Grilling Experience

Specialty Electric Grill Manufacturer and Leading Outdoor Kitchen Innovator Debut All-in-One Outdoor Entertaining Kitchen for Condos and Smaller Residences

CLINTON, CT--(Marketwired - Mar 17, 2016) -  Kenyon International, Inc., a leading specialty electric grill manufacturer, today announces its partnership with Sunset Bay Outdoor, an award-winning maker of outdoor living products. As a result of the collaboration, Kenyon's Rio Grill is included in the Epicurean Kitchen, Sunset Bay's newest outdoor kitchen model. The Epicurean Kitchen is designed especially for grilling enthusiasts that live in hi-rise apartments or condos and do not have a large outdoor space for entertaining.

Kenyon's Rio Grill is smokeless and flameless, heats up to 550 degrees from edge to edge in minutes and features medical grade non-stick coating designed for easy cleanup. The Rio also features a rounded, flat edge design that compliments the upscale aesthetic of the Epicurean Kitchen. Additionally, both the grill and kitchen have been tested to withstand inclement weather, surpassing more than 4,000 salt and sand spray tests.

"We are thrilled to introduce the Epicurean Kitchen and offer our customers a complete, high-quality all-in-one outdoor grilling and entertaining space that is unlike anything else on the market for people living in city centers or smaller condos," said Mike Williams, product specialist at Kenyon. "As a leader in outdoor living products, there is no doubt Sunset Bay's kitchens are the perfect setting for Kenyon's line of premium electric grills."

Sunset Bay's products have earned numerous excellence awards from Hearth & Home Magazine, changing the way people entertain with outdoor kitchens. In addition to the Rio Grill, The Epicurean Kitchen features a high degree of portability, durable textured exterior, countertops that stay cooler in the sun and can be cleaned to FDA food safe standards, sealed cabinets to keep stored items clean and a contemporary design that will complement any outdoor setting.

"The Epicurean Kitchen is the first of many products we hope to bring to the market through our partnership with Kenyon. Our team is constantly looking for ways to enhance the outdoor living experience for people who lead all types of lifestyles," said Joseph Ehmke, general manager at Sunset Bay Outdoor. "Now our customers whose homes lack traditional outdoor space are able to easily enjoy the same high-quality gourmet grilling and entertaining kitchen space that is available to those with larger homes."

The Epicurean Kitchen will be showcased for the first time at the Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Expo in New Orleans from March 17-19 at booth #1010.

About Kenyon
Kenyon began as a small manufacturer of aviation and marine instruments in 1931. As business developed they led the way with the breakthrough development of ceramic glass cooktops for the high seas, becoming the standard for yachts around the world. The immense popularity of the cooktops led to a high-demand for shore-side models to be enjoyed in homes. From here, Kenyon began manufacturing smokeless and flameless electric grills that are safe for indoor grilling on boats, in RVS or right in your own kitchen.

About Sunset Bay Outdoor
Founded in 2008 by Owner and 40 year design veteran, Robert Ehmke, Sunset Bay Outdoor's mission is to craft contemporary outdoor kitchens and fire pits that enhance the outdoor living experience with their unique features and a style that finally affords customers an outdoor kitchen choice beside brick or stucco. Utilizing only materials that have been tested to be weather resistant, these outdoor living products feature never before seen advances in outdoor cabinetry and drawers that actually allow the owner to use their outdoor space like they do their indoor space. The patent pending manufacturing design also makes them easy to ship, display at retail and deliver and install in a home - usually by one person with only a screwdriver.
