We’ve been using the Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table and have been very impressed with it. We love it and highly recommend it. Read this review to find out more.
This year we’ve had a new addition to our family camping kitchen setup: The Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table.
For years we have been using the very popular Outwell Richmond Kitchen Table, and while it has been excellent, there were a few design tweaks we would like to make. Well, the new Drayton table includes all of those design tweaks and more.
- Not quite as long (1m) but deeper so it is now easier to transport without sacrificing the kitchen working area.
- A solid kitchen work surface that is easy to wipe clean. The problem with slatted tables is that food can fall between the gaps.
- A good sized solid sink. This folds up into the Drayton Kitchen table, so you don’t have to find additional transport space for the sink.
- There are good storage options. One very large vented cupboard with a solid bottom. Big enough for large bottles. There are also three smaller shelves, all with solid bottoms, which are a perfect height for tins and smaller packets.
- There are a useful rack and a wire shelf above the sink. We found this a great place for things you want to hand, such as washing up items.
- The lid also contains a utensil rack.
With the Drayton Kitchen Table setup, you certainly feel like you have a proper little kitchen with you when camping.
Watch our video below to have a closer look.
The Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table Up Close
Let’s take a closer look at the Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table.
The topside of the Drayton Kitchen Table is the rigid sink. This is a very usable sink. You can also fit an Outwell Collaps chopping board over the top of it if you want more workspace.
We place our large water carrier on the work surface with the tap over the sink (see the photo below).
Also, notice how the utensil shelves and rack are used. The handwash and washing up items right above the sink works very well for us.
One the underside of the Drayton Kitchen table is the storage.
The left cupboard is large and can take very tall items. The right cupboard is smaller and comes with three shelves. We find this perfect for plates, tins, and other smaller items we need at the campsite.
Assembling the Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table
Setting up the Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table couldn’t be easier.
The kitchen table comes with a carry case. You simply pull out the table from the case, which is neatly folded up.
From the underside of the folded kitchen unit, you pull out the legs and lock them in place.
The storage unit is already pre-attached and drops down. You have to use the Velcro tabs to secure it to the table legs.
The final step is placing the support shelf on the bottom of the unit. This shelf helps keep the unit rigid and provides support for the base of the shelves.
The top half of the Drayton Kitchen Table is even easier. Simply open the lid, and the sink is already in place, along with the utensil rack and shelves.
This folding kitchen unit is a very practical solution for camping. It’s simple to set-up, simple to transport, and great to use.
If you have space in your camp kitchen, I recommend placing your camping stove on a separate unit and using the Outwell Drayton Kitchen Table as your main workspace and food prep area, which really does simplify and help with cooking meals for your family at the campsite.
