WTB: Camp Kitchen

#1

Post by Rhubarb »

I'm interested in a good camp kitchen.

I've been looking at the Cabela's deluxe and the GCI master cook station, maybe the Stoic camp kitchen? The new Coleman camp kitchen looks a bit "sus" in the words of my 9-year-old daughter.

Do you have any recommendations?

Do you have something better for sale?

I'm located in 89316 NV. I'm sure shipping will be a bear.

Thanks.

Just fyi, had the Cabela’s Deluxe camp kitchen, it was great, but geez that thing is heavy…. If you are trying to go light, that is not what you want. ;)

I prefer the GCI Outdoor Slim Fold Cook Station. Has enough space, is much lighter and takes up less room than the Cabela’s.

Yes, what he said ^^^.

Make sure you know what you want. I purchased some monster deluxe camp kitchen that has everything and the kitchen sink - literally - and it hardly ever gets used. Don't get me wrong it's nice, but it is relatively heavy and takes up a lot of real estate in a pickup bed. It would be suitable for large fixed camps, or groups of 5 to 10 maybe.

I'm actually considering buying one of these as well. Some campgrounds only provide a single picnic table per site. Well, that one goes into the dining tent, which means unless I "borrow" another table from another site or buy a camp kitchen, I'm running the stove in the dining tent, which for myriad reasons I very much prefer not to.

The Cabela's Deluxe does seem a bit... large. And those "cupboards" it has would very quickly get destroyed anywhere where raccoons or foxes are a problem if you use them to store any kind of food. The whole thing seems to me to be a bit much, and then there's the $300(CAD) price tag.

The GSI though seems right up my alley, but it could use a better spot to hang the long handled cooking utensils. I'd like to read a few reviews and opinions of it before I buy. It's even on sale at MEC right now at 25% off.

Eric, did you modify that table at all? The one I'm seeing (LINK) has neither the solid backing nor the kitchen sink. Both would influence my purchase decision.

Eric, I like that set up! Looking good.

I'm currently slobbering over the "Dine O Max" from SlyVanSport. https://www.sylvansport.com/shop/dine-o ... p-kitchen/

From my research, the Cabela's Camp kitchen leaves a lot to be desired since it was acquired by Bass Pro Shop.

I'm not trying to go light, this will be used in conjunction with my recently acquired late model 12x20 Alaknak tent from Cabela's.

Yes Dan, that is my backyard. We butt up to one of our hay fields and lots of BLM land. Folk associate Nevada with Las Vegas, but there is so much more!

John, I've always wanted an older Coleman camp kitchen...I'd gladly put a deposit down...who knows when I might pick it up? We can PM or email details if you want.

I can't make the surfer gathering either, likely will be haying. Just like every convention, or any summer activities. Maybe I can make it to SoCal for one of those winter gatherings?

Andy, are you on the eastern side of the state? I really like the trip up US93 through Alamo, Caliente and up to Pioche and Ely

"Folk associate Nevada with Las Vegas, but there is so much more!"

geez, I know. I grew up in Arizona, and everyone thinks the whole state is like Phoenix. you tell them about a pine tree of a lake and they're like "what state are you talking about?"

It's not going anywhere, we'll work something out one of these days. I don't have a picture of it, but it has the case and I think it's in excellent condition...but I'm not sure I've ever opened it up to see.

I have the GCI Outdoor Slim Fold Cook Station. I use it because its convenient and folds up nice. It also fits a Coleman stove perfectly. I'm not sure i'd buy it again unless it was on sale.

It's very sturdy!

You MUST have it on flat level ground. I've ran into a few scenarios when dispersed camping where a slight gust of wind could have knocked it over. A few rock shims helped. But a heavy stove and a big cast iron skillet on top is a recipe for disaster if not on flat ground.

The black side trays are nice, but don't expect to put anything heavy on them. Nothing more than a couple pounds.

It's hard to find anything that fits in/on the middle bottom shelf. The crossbars are in the way and make it difficult. The only thing I've found to put there is a milk crate and you still have to maneuver and add a little force getting it in there.

I wish it came with a carrying case..

Hey Mr. Light, that looks like an older, sturdier, iteration of the Cabela's Deluxe Camp Kitchen. Their current offering is advertised as the Bass Pro Kitchen and I think it's not as good as it once was.

^^^ That looks like what I have. I'll have to plug in the weight & dimensions of my Cabela's camp kitchen into the postage calculator. That's a lotta stamps! I bet it's pushing $250 for shipping. And if it isn't well braced and padded in a larger box, it will almost certainly get destroyed.

I have the GCI Master Cook Station, got it open box for about a bill. I have not used it yet but set it up once to have a look. It seems to be of reasonable quality, but again, not tested. The size is not bad and it is not terribly heavy. It would be better suited when cooking for more than the 2 of us, overkill, I usually just use some combination of my Coleman stove stand, stove plus chef trays, or picnic table. Pics shown next to a 3x3 folding table for size reference, I think it may be lighter than that too. Forgive the blasphemy of the propane stove, ban me now!

Matt, that particular profane stove is definitely the real deal. Nothing to be ashamed of! I've kept my eyes open for a deal on a Partner Steel stove ever since I noticed one on a rafting trip on the Middle Fork of the American River in CA.

If the GCI can handle that, I'm sure a three burner Coleman shouldn't be a problem.

It was a coop but isn't anymore. The C now stands for Company. MEC is now American owned.

I never did believe it was a coop. Members never did get member dividends. Profits were "reinvested into the coop". At least REI pays a member dividend.

Ha, nice pun, thank you for the pass :). The Partner is definitely well made. I can say that the table setup seem to handle that and the 413 well, the shelf also did OK with a full 5lb tank.

I will be getting my gear together this weekend for a 2 week road trip starting Friday. I will try to get some shots with a 3-burner or 2 and post here.

If you go that route, I hope it meets your needs. Like I said before, I have not had the opportunity to use it in the wild, but it seems decently made. The only thing I might be concerned with was mentioned earlier regarding stability and being level, but I think that applies to most / all of these, as they seem to be similarly sized (height and depth) If it matters to you, one of the reasons I went with this was the fact that it is all one piece and just unfolds, nothing separate to attach, etc.

The new Coleman camp kitchen table is light duty - very light construction.

The top of the table is fiberboard and is only moisture resistant not moisture proof. When my kitchen was out in the rain, the fiberboard started to swell - I could tell it would fail.

To solve the problem, I coated both sides of the table's fiberboard surface with 3 coats of marine spar varnish. It has been good since then. It is light duty - basically a small table and small stove table.

I have the big Coleman camp kitchen. It is deluxe, but very heavy - good for long-term camping, or camping for a crowd.

Hello Mr. Rhubarb! Yes my kitchen is the older Cabelas Deluxe Camp Kitchen. Very sturdy. Green cloth cabinets, white top prep areas. I have other photos that I am looking for where I have my cast iron pans on the middle shelve and two Coleman Lanterns on the top hangers, coffee mugs, spatulas on the middle hangers. For me this kitchen was a must have.

I'm working on my first camp kitchen after having just a drawer with a stove in it. I'm planning on making a drawer for the area underneath the stove, but still not sure how I'm going to organize the bin on the left. I've used it a handful of times and I love it!! Slides right into my drawer system and isn't too heavy! There are many more suggetion on thebarbec.com. Wouldn't mind suggestions on how to organize the left side of this camp kitchen.

We have the older Cabelas camp kitchen also. We love it, holds a bunch of stuff for outdoor cooking and storage. I’m not a fan of the newer version. We leave ours under the table in our camper when we are not camping so it’s not really in the way.

I picked up a Coleman camp kitchen like pictured above in post 5 for $10 at a yard sale today, looks almost new…. definitely doesn’t have the sturdiness of the old bigger Cabela’s I had, but at least I can move this one by myself. Excited to try it later this week.
