What Is A Slide Out Kitchen?

If you're an adventure enthusiast, a road-tripping aficionado, or simply someone who loves the great outdoors, then the term "slide out kitchen" is about to become your new favourite thing. Picture this: a kitchen that magically appears when you need it and effortlessly disappears when you're done. Yep, you heard that right!

In this post, let’s talk about everything you need to know about slide out camp kitchens. 

What is a slide out kitchen? 

So, what's the buzz all about? A slide out kitchen is essentially a kitchen that slides out. This is the ingenious answer to a common dilemma faced by wanderers like us, which is how to cook up a storm without sacrificing space or functionality. In the realm of caravanning, camping and RV escapades, slide out kitchens have been creating ripples, and for all the right reasons!

No more struggling to find the perfect spot for your stove, sink, and prep area. With slide out kitchens, you get a sleek, organised setup that's ready to transform your outdoor cooking game. The magic is in their telescopic runners – a simple tug, and voilà! Your mini-kitchen slides out, complete with burners, a sink for those post-cooking quick clean-ups, ample storage and even a countertop for your culinary masterpieces.

But wait, there's more! The popularity of slide out kitchens isn't just about convenience (though that's a big part of it). It's about relishing moments with friends and family, without the stress of setting up a makeshift kitchen or worrying about where to store your cookware.

What to consider when getting a slide out kitchen

Just like picking the perfect camping spot, finding the ideal slide out kitchen involves a bit of know-how and a sprinkle of personal flair. Some of the key considerations you should keep in mind when buying a slide out kitchen include: 

  • Size — Think of Goldilocks and her quest for the perfect porridge — not too big, not too small, just right. When it comes to slide out kitchens, size is a major factor. Assess the available space in your outdoor setup, whether it's a cosy camper or a rugged RV. A snug fit ensures that your kitchen seamlessly integrates into your outdoor oasis.
  • Customisation — Are you the gourmet guru who needs all the bells and whistles, or the minimalist magician who loves simplicity? From extra burners to bonus storage, slide out kitchens come with various features. Consider what's essential for your culinary escapades and what would be a sweet bonus.
  • Material — Durability is your best friend on the open road. Most slide out kitchens are crafted from trusty materials like aluminium and stainless steel. They're lightweight yet sturdy, ready to tackle anything the wilderness throws your way. It's like having kitchen armour for your epic outdoor quests.
  • Brand reliability — Just like choosing a travel buddy, selecting a reputable brand is key. Think about it — you want your slide out kitchen to stand the test of time. Look for names that have earned their stripes in the world of outdoor gear. Brands like Ridge 4x4 are known for their quality and commitment to happy campers.
  • Budget — Finding a slide out kitchen that fits your budget without compromising on quality is like striking gold. Consider it an investment in your culinary happiness, an upgrade that'll make every mealtime on the road a gourmet affair.
