Stainless table

Im wanting some sort of stainless table or cart to put my large egg in. I looked through several older post of a few people who had bought the stainless carts from Sams. I just looked on Ebay and there are tons of them in the 200 dollar range but I figure are to flimsy. Plus the only ones I found with adjustable shelves are the carts with the wire shelves. Also I think I read one post where they had to take the wheels off the cart because of how high the hinge set above the table top, making the whole egg quite high. Could the table top be cut around the hinge? Are there supports in the way? Any advice on how these carts are holding up to being rolled around is greatly appreciated. Also any recomendation on which cart/table to buy is appreciated. Thanks!

  • Hi Rolling egg. The one from Sam's is small. I put my mini on it. The box said it could hold 300 lbs., but I doubt it.

    Check out a used restaurant supply place for a sturdy stainless table. We have one here in Tampa and they buy used kitchen equipment from the Publix stores that go out of business, or move. They are expensive for restaurant quality, but I think that may be the only thing sturdy enough to hold a large egg.

    I have the seville classics from sam's and they are great. One for each large. reinforced the top with plywood, welded the second shelf for the egg to sit on and cut down the legs. Couldnt be happier. Very sturdy unless you dont cut the legs down.

    Here is a post that has a nice stainless table as well as others. Don't know what you were wanting to spend but this may give you some ideas.

    I have a table I bought at Costco some years ago for only $100 or thereabouts. I use it only as a side table but I'm sure it'd make a good eggholder if I modified it.

    That said, I have a couple thoughts for your consideration - I've mentioned these before and some others have agreed with me.

    1. Stainless means that it stains less, not that it doesn't stain at all. It still needs regular cleaning.

    2. Stainless can be a nuisance if you want to use a magnetic fixture (e.g., lamp) because it isn't magnetic (a minor inconvenience usually.)

    3. Stainless can reflect the sun really really brightly.

    4. Stainless can get really really really hot in the sun.

    None of those need be deal-killers but they are worth thinking about.

    All of which I have not thought about. Thanks for the thoughts. There is not a tree in my backyard for shade so it would be bright and hot.

    I plan on making a stainless table soon, It has been an idea of mine for a while now. I have some square and rect. tube at work left over from different contracts. As for your post the table top could be cut to fit around the hinge. A welder/fabrication shop with a plasma cutter could easily cut the top however you like. Good luck!

    You wouldn't happen to use the maple-top side cart with draweres from Sevile? I'm think about it for storage of my gear, and am wondering if anyone likes it.
