What to Consider Selecting the Best Camping Kitchen (with a windscreen)

Windproofing

Each of the camping kitchens we’ve included on this list have a windscreen because we think its vital that the main prep or cooking area be protected. During windy days is exactly when you’ll want to be able to rely on your trusty camp kitchen to keep your dutch oven at a steady heat, provide another layer of wind protection for your propane stove, or just stop the vegetables from blowing off the cutting board!

Preparation Area

The primary benefit of a camping kitchen is the amount of space they are able to add to your campground to chop vegetables, make coffee, or whip up some morning stovetop eggs! Most of the camping kitchens on this list have some kind of extension to the main setup if you need even more space. Check out the table above to find the best camping kitchen space for you. If you’re not sure what you need, the table below provides some handy references:

Material

The majority of these camping kitchens are built with a combination of steel frame and steel or other materials like bamboo or heavy plastic for the horizontal prep surfaces. The material you choose may impact the maintence requirements – For example, bamboo is more liekly to splinter than a stainless steel countertop if accidentally left in the rain a few too many times.

Weight

If you’re car camping, weight may not be a critical factor but for primitive campers and backpackers, every ounce counts. When you’re hauling every bit of supplies out to the site, a pound over a mile or three will really add up! If weight is a concern, consider going for our top pick, the Giantix cooking table, which weighs in at almost ten pounds lighter than the next best option! Either way, camping kitchens with a windscreen or without one are going to be too heavy to take backpacking.

The shelving area is secured through a zipper and fabric exterior. The front of this area is a screen material ensuring that you and your friends or family will be able to easily see the contents inside.

2. Camp Chef Camp Table
