It's good, but could be better

This thing worked great for our things. I like that the fuel cannister fits out of the way below the taller countertop, but it's kind of a booger to get in there.

I like the pole that you can add the hook to to hang something from, but it's really way too short... they need to make it fatter with an extension inside to raise it up a bit.

I would rather have another sturdy rack on the left rather than the netting that's there... you can't leave anything there to dry as it says because insects get all over it... plus you're scared to put a lot of weight on it because it's not like the other super sturdy shelves that it has under the larger side.

I was impressed with the metal shelves and how they fit on the corners. We keep our kitchen stuff in plastic containers and they fit perfectly on the metal shelves with no worries of them having any problems. I like how they are angled up on the sides to keep the containers and whatever else in/on the shelves.

The whole thing seems pretty sturdy, but we haven't used it a whole lot to get a good gauge of how well it will hold up over time... I've got doubts about the plastic pieces that hold the countertops and all on top of the assembly.

I am also not a fan of the bag that it fits into. I have seen others that fold up into a box,and I would like that a lot better than the bag. It just seems it is too easily ripped, and I find myself not wanting to stack anything on top of it because I'm scared the wires are somehow going to dig into the table tops...

Overall, I'm satisfied because I was able to get it on sale... REI's return policy sells its stuff, and so far it appears that this will be with us for many more years (as long as the bag holds up).

Love the table, but

The table was so easy to setup that I didn't even need to use the instructions which are written on the inside of the bag so you will not lose them. The table seem well constructed and functional. The two legs on the small table telescope which make it easy to adjust to make the table level. I wished the other four legs telescoped as well. They do have a small screw out pad but will only adjust a little. Weird that they do not telescope like the other two. The pole for a light etc is a ice touch but, it is too short to hang a full size gas lantern. I will probably make something to put on the end to set a lantern on the very top. I liked the two metal wire shelves they set securely between the legs. I agree with the other review it would be nice if the mesh net shelve was like them as we'll. All in all a very nice table and with just a few changes would be a 5 star in my book.

Instant Kitchen

Very useful; we use one side of table top for food prep or serving, the other holds the grill. The Camp Chef Everest 2 fits on larger top.

There are two sturdy wire shelves for pots/pans, etc. and the third shelf is made of netting for drying of cookware (a previous reviewer didn't get this)

A nice clip for a camp light (small to medium size) comes on the vertical pole, you can buy more clips for pans, pots, towels.

On one side it has a handy wire frame for a trash bag (Simple human 30 litre can liners fits perfect)

Two of the legs adjust for uneven ground.

It comes with a nice carrying bag.

I used a short bungee cord to hold a paper towel roll on front (see picture). I also picked up some S hooks from local home improvement store to grill accessories, etc.

This is best used for car camping, is sturdy, and works best with mostly even ground.

Very helpful

I was the primary cook for 6 adults and 6 children on our first trip with this Camp Kitchen, and I found this kitchen system perfect for our needs. Very easy set up, including adjustable legs for uneven surfaces.
On top, on one side, I used a cooking element and kept all utensils, food, spices, etc, handy on the other side. Underneath, I had a basins on the shelves for clean/dirty dishes and other kitchen whatnots. In the mornings, I set up a coffee station for everyone and it was as "civilized" as I could want in the great outdoors.
I will tweak my use of the available storage space underneath as I use it more often.
It will come in handy even for our backyard cookouts.
If you can fit this into your car and budget, it is a quality piece of useful equipment.

I love this thing

This table is amazing. I've been car camping and outdoor living for 40 years and have yet to see anything like this. It's got just what I need in a camp table: a shelf for my 2-burner, a prep shelf, two racks for pots, pans, cutlery and spices and a post from which to hang a light. It's beefy enough to handle chopping onions and a heavy dutch oven and it's small and light enough to fold flat in the back of my car. The post which holds the light is also a perfect paper towel holder.

I wish the height on the lamp post was adjustable and I need to bring levelers for underneath the stove.

BTW, I'm astonished that the previous reviewer was so critical of this table and has completely re-designed it without ever having used it.

Nice system

I have looked at this came kitchen for years and put off buying it due to other priorities in gear needs. Now with almost everything I can think of that we really need, this really was worth the wait. Love how everything is right in arms reach when I'm cooking and getting meals ready. This keeps your kitchen items centrally located as well as freeing up table space to do what you need to do at a table, eat. Not having to worry about someone sitting at the table next to a hot stove is great, as well as not having to run around the table to get what you need.

I would certainly recommend this product

A very useful kit for the campsite; held the 2-burner stove and had a fair-sized prep area with lots of storage. It's not exactly small, and it's not exactly light, but it loaded up on a canoe just fine and really held a lot of gear at the site, including a full-sized lantern. Sets up and adjusts easily.

great little table!

Great little table. A little narrow but understandable to keep it compact and mobile. Used on several road trips with camping involved. Can get a little heavy if you have to move it frequently when in the bag. Shelves underneath and the hook on top were great additions. The whole set up was impressive to family members!

I was impressed with how strong it was.

Set up next to RV and connect grill to LP tank, it's not unwieldy and has lots of room.

Negative Reviews:

Arrived broken!

This product was the only item on my gift list this year. It was shipped to the Tucson REI store and picked up. When I opened it I noticed that one of the plastic arms was broken, the screws were pulled out from the table top, it was missing the hook and also missing one of the shelves. The tape that keeps the box closed was previously cut open and there was a past return shipping label affixed prominently on the outside of the box. Unusual for REI, but it appears we received someone else's defective returned merchandise. Hopefully the return policy will hold up and we will get something that is not broken, and after reading other reviews and seeing the defects first hand I am also hoping that the 2nd try will allow me to post a better review and that the screws and plastic parts are not an inherent weakness of this product... keeping my fingers crossed.

returned -broke piece while assembling

the clips that attach the legs to the bottom of the table broke off when I put it together for the first time to test it out. Seems like a design flaw, very short screws hold clips to thin particle board table top, they just stripped right out. Other than that, it looked like a nice unit.
innermark at REI on 08/08/2013

Good Idea, bad materials

Great design but failed on materials used. Screws stripped out of particle board when putting away after first use. Particle board should NEVER be used in this type of application. Also, particle board cannot handle water (i.e., rain). Use good ol' plastic. Not PC enough? Then use REAL wood.

Returned

Returned it. Plastic parts broke as assembling, screws came out of table particle board. Very disappointed certainly not rei quality. Pretty as how it looked in the online picture and liked the the basket features. Rei allowed no hassle return.
Madelyn at REI on 11/11/2013

Yeah, but...

The screws that hold the top shelves were coming off before I even opened the box. I could fix this and make it a lot stronger, but that would void the return warranty, so I'll probably just return it.

Neutral Reviews:

Great design, screws not adequate

The design is well thought out and the kitchen is great for car camping or tailgating. Unfortunately, as mentioned in other reviews, the screws attaching the legs mounts to the extension table are too short. They pulled out the first time I tried to collapse the legs. The tops in my unit are laminated plywood (not particle board as suggested in another review), and I was able to glue the leg mounts in place. I'm keeping the unit (as I said, the design is great), but know that you might need to do some minor repair before you use the kitchen.
