Space is usually at a premium for campers, RVers, hikers, off-road adventurers and anyone who appreciates cooking outdoors. The OpenRange Camp Kitchen is essentially a basecamp in a box.
Like a pocketknife with myriad functions, the new Yakima product offers a lot in a small package. The base model ($749) includes the OpenRange Camp box with a lantern hook and organizing shelf. The deluxe option ($1,199) features a wood side table with cutting board, collapsible wash basin with drain hose, metal cook side table with flexible fuel hose, a hanging fuel canister pouch and the CookOut two-burner stove.
A kit is available separately with adjustable legs that telescope from 20 to 33 inches in height. Bamboo and metal side tables and a two-burner propane stove with integrated push-button ignition are also available individually for $149 each.
When not in use, the ensemble is contained in a roto-molded enclosure with a rubber door seal; well protected from the weather, dirt and animals. The portable kitchen is geared toward use with Yakima-specific vehicle racks, but it’s also perfect for carrying in a trunk or truck bed. It’s 31 inches long, 18 inches tall and 18 inches wide and weighs 31 pounds.
