Even campsite chefs need a clean, level surface on which to cook, chop, mix, and prepare. (Tree stumps don't quite cut it for kebab vegetables, after all.) Kelty's portable cooking setup transforms your campsite into a workstation fit for a sous chef. Your camp stove goes on the central tabletop, while seasonings and other accoutrements fit conveniently on the small shelf underneath. Chopping, mixing and other food preparation happens on the broader, right-hand countertop. For neat freaks, an optional zippered pantry below the Basecamp's surface securely stows pots and pans into a series of zippered enclosures. The entire package folds up and weighs only 18 pounds, making it a cinch to schlep and store. [$160; kelty.com]
