Stainless steel prep tables are found in every restaurant and there is a reason for that.
I remember years ago that I had a beautiful wooden prep table in my restaurant that was built like a chopping block.
The Health Department told me that the next year those types of tables were no longer allowed and I had to replace them with a stainless steel table.
As backyard pitmasters, we do not have to follow these rules. However, why not go for the safest product to keep the food we prepare as safe as possible and use a stainless steel BBQ prep table.
My Choice Stainless Steel Table
I know that stainless steel is most of the time very expensive. However, I found a company that delivers stainless steel tables, and many other things, for a very reasonable price.
At the time of my writing this article, the price is $149.95
I went for the 14 x 24 inches size since that fits my needs the best. There are many other sizes available on their website.
The package was delivered right on my porch and when I picked it up I could already feel that it was heavy and that made me believe that it must be of good quality.
After opening the box I found 4 parts.
- Baggie with hardware
The description and the manual on how to install the parts were very easy to follow and with the hardware also came an Allen wrench and all the screws I needed.
All you do is place the tabletop upside down on a surface that will not scratch it and install the four legs.
Each leg is secured with 2 screws and this ensured me of the quality again.
The next step was to decide where I wanted the shelf and secure this also with 2 screws per leg.
What puzzled me for a minute was the screws were already on the shelf and I did not have to use the screws that came in the hardware bag. So, I now have I have 4 screws left.
Now everything was installed it was time to remove the protective foil from the top and the shelf. It looked very nice and I am sure I will enjoy using this table for a long time.
More Stainless Steel Prep Table Options.

If you are still using other materials as a prep table I suggest you have a look at a stainless steel BBQ prep table to make sure that your food stays safe.
Just remember not to keep it outside. Stainless steel is rust-resistant but will rust eventually when left outside. After using it I move it to my shed.
If you think stainless steel is not what you need you can have a look at the other outdoor prep tables I think you can use.
