Food prep table

I am looking for a table that I could use to cook outside. It just need to be large enough for an induction cooktop and a toaster. My only requirements are that it should be sturdy that it could fold in something that does not take too much space and that is relatively light. Any recommendations? I looked at tables that offered covered storage under and even small side table and it seemed overkill but I would like to hear from people using them

We use a 3x6 folding from Menards $30.00. It has 3 height adjustments. In the low position, it covers chairs and cooler; next is table height and than a tall "stand up" position.

Cabelas has a neat and sturdy aluminum table that folds and rolls into a carry bag. Actually, they have a couple of tables that do that but the one that costs about 100 bucks is very sturdy and can hold a electric grill, coffee maker, toaster and more. If we lost ours we'd just buy another. Highly recommended.

We used this one from WalMart.

I used the mesh part to hold a grill and the plastic top for prep and sauces. The legs fold up under the top and it folds in half. Very sturdy. I gave it away when I mounted a rail to hold the grill to the side of the trailer. The couple we gave it to really like it. The camp out of a DIY modified van so space is at a premium.

We use this one from walmart. We use it mostly for a drink and snack table, but it is big enough for the coleman stove. Fits under the bed in our 22 sport.

We looked for a year to find a table for the grill. Our AS dealer had a square table that would have worked. Aluminum slat top and x brace legs. Similar to the composite table you see as a side table for lounge chairs. But sold the sample and no others available.

Last weekend we picked up a small bifold with adjustable legs from Camping World, item 69056. They call it their 3ft alum table. It's adjustable from 14-3/8 to 27-7/8 high and it folds to 23-1/2 x 17-3/4. We have not used it, so we can only say the option exists. Our need is the same as yours. Tired of cooking on the ground when there is not an appropriate picnic table available. The catch, it's built in China and that may be against your buying habits.

Having choices helps. Good luck with your search. Pat

I use the Cabela's Deluxe Camper's Kitchen. I have had it since our tenting days and now use it when camping for a week or more. I now only take the table and no accessories. I like it because I can put our grill on one side, prep the food on the center table and place other items on the other side table to include our induction top. It folds flat and fits easily into the bed of the truck. It also sets ups quickly. Not sure it would fit your needs but if you could find one simialr without all of the attachments it might just wrok for you. I only use it for cooking.

Good luck on your search and let us know what you buy.
