Outdoor counter-height tables?

Recommended Posts

Took my induction unit outside for the first time. Only had a very low side table, so I used that. Absolutely loved it! Made me wonder why I haven’t been cooking outside more this summer. Only problem was the height. 

 

 Anyone know of any good counter height tables that can stay outside all year: rain, shine, and -40 degree weather?

 

Anything specifically labeled “outdoor kitchen” or “outdoor countertop” seems to be overpriced.

Thanks. But that doesn’t appear to be counter height. Already have a dining table on the deck.

Some folding tables extend to bar/counter height. Otherwise consider a set of risers for your current table. Search for bed risers or furniture risers, they should be about $20.

A farmer's market vendor of my acquaintance used short lengths of PVC pipe as a makeshift extender for his folding table's legs. Worked quite well.

So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

My induction plate has lived on the patio for years.  It's great.

I do this in one of my ren faire kitchens.  One up to counter height,  one up to 40 inches for the tall people (they love it).

Another vote for an S/S prep table. It was the first thing I thought of.
