Snow Peak Launched a Slim Iron Grill Table and We Can’t Wait to Get One

Snow Peak knows how to make great outdoor gear. And not just serviceable, utilitarian camping gear like you’d find at your local Cabela’s — we’re talking some serious, hard-wearing, but beautiful in its simplicity camping gear. We’re huge fans of Snow Peak and we are not alone — the brand is a cult favorite nearly everywhere, from its home in Japan to the hills and forests of the American Pacific Northwest.

This month, Snow Peak added to its repertoire of outdoor cooking gear, apparel, tents, and convenient iron grill tables, a thinner, lighter (but just as durable and good-looking) Iron Grill Table Slim.

Made from stainless steel and natural teak wood, the Snow Peak has taken its larger, more fatherly Iron Grill Table and streamlined it for a far more portable and utilitarian iteration with collapsible legs for easy storage and removable inserts that allow for switching in and out of burners, barbecues, and cutting boards. Great for anything from car camping to picnics to hanging out in your own backyard, the IGT Slim offers a place to sit, cook, and commune in nature. And, while the price for this little table seems a bit on the hefty side, just remember that it will literally last your entire lifetime (or longer). You could pass the Snow Peak IGT Alim down to your grandson in 30 years and it will still be as functional then as it is today.

What good is the table without its accessories?

Cutting Board (Set L) – $56

It’s always nice to have a clean, stable surface for slicing and dicing in the wild. With this cutting board insert, chopping potatoes for a hobo hash has never been easier.

Double BBQ Box – $250

This accessory will pretty much take up your entire IGT Slim, but for barbecue bros around the country, that’s totally acceptable.

Snow Peak Celebrates 60 Years of Making Products that Last a Lifetime
Snow Peak 60

I got my first Snow Peak mug about a decade ago and, as far as I can tell, it's the last camping mug I'll ever need. Even after bouncing along strapped to my pack during countless miles on the trail, used for everything from boiling water to preparing pasta to digging a hole, the super lightweight titanium mug is still in near perfect condition. The only issue is that the logo has worn away — but I know damn well who made the thing, as does any other experienced outdoorsman who will properly identify a Snow Peak mug at a glance.

That mug was a gateway purchase that led to an entire Snow Peak cookware set that I bring along with me whenever I head out into the field, and that's true whether I'm car camping or trekking for miles into the mountains. Let that sink in, if you will: Even when weight is no factor, I still use my Snow Peak gear instead of, or in concert with, other camping cookware. It's just that well made. Even when I'm planning to cook on my big old two-burner Coleman Roadtrip LXE grill, I've always got my Snow Peak Litemax Titanium Stove and a can of fuel with me, because I know I can count on the thing as a backup. When your camping stove weighs all of two ounces, why not bring it along?

PK Grills: A Culinary Cult Classic Lives to Grill Again

Just as the mythical phoenix arises from the ashes of its predecessor, PK (Portable Kitchen) Grills had almost faded into obscurity before being reborn. 

The first Portable Kitchen was created in 1952 in Tyler, Texas by Hilton Meigs, an inventor and businessman. The unique capsule design was constructed of thick cast aluminum which conducts heat more efficiently than steel and will not fall prey to the effects of rust like other grills.
