SS prep table

So,  my new patio is slowly moving towards completion.  I'm starting to think about how I want to set up the kitchen area. 

Originally I had thought that I wanted to build a kitchen island with  a sink,  so I had a water line and electrical  line stubbed on one side.  Now I'm thinking that I might cut a commercial prep table and drop a bar sink in it.  Will probably get a large  watertight deck box to store accessories and charcoal. 

Would this work? Has anybody else had issues with leaving a ss table uncovered outside? I think @henapple put together similar setup recently.  If anyone has recommendations for a watertight deck box,  I'm all ears.

    Bumping my own thread, because I'm still looking  for recs. 

    A steel prep table with sink and cabinets would be ideal. Found these modules made by Swiss Grill. The total price of these (sink unit and another cabinet or drawer unit) may actually work out cheaper than building the outdoor kitchen myself. I'm still wondering if I could find a commercial ss table with sink that I could leave outside uncovered.

    I have had 2 different stainless steel tables outside for years. They work great and do not rust. Check a restaurant supply house for used tables or sinks.

    Sam's for $150 about 3 years old. Works well. Going to buy another. image

    I m going to get one and use the top as my outdoor kitchen counter. Probably the cheapest most indestructible way to do it.

    Thanks for the info. 

     @Mickey I've seen tables like that at Sam's  and Costco online.  One of them had tables of different lengths too.  Planning on getting a longer table then dropping in a sink at one end.  Would have preferred cabinets in the table but at that price I may settle for a watertight deck box to store accessories.
