Our Journey

The conception of Igneous Outdoor Kitchens is deeply rooted in history, tracing back to the birth of granite hundreds of millions of years ago. But don’t worry, we won’t take you on a geological tour. Instead, let’s jump to 2004.

That’s when Shawn and Garry, along with Charlie, Sue & Kelly laid the foundation of what is now known as Granite Kitchen Services Ltd, or GKS for convenience, nestled in Botley, Southampton. As GKS flourished, amassing a team of twenty-five committed individuals, our creativity sparked ideas for outdoor furnishings, including fish tanks, pizza ovens, and BBQs.

After several experiments and trials and the recognition of a gap in the market for a genuine weatherproof outdoor kitchen, the vision of Igneous Outdoor Kitchen was born.

A Clear Vision

Creating Outdoor Experiences

Having worked with granite for over 25 years and with a knowledge of kitchens and a love of outdoor cooking, the birth of Igneous Outdoor Kitchens was just a matter of time.

Igneous is built on a passion for creating memories, relishing tasty dishes, and indulging in the comfort of outdoor living. From the entire team, we welcome you to our journey.
