The 10 Best Dutch Oven Tables

This wiki has been updated 17 times since it was first published in November of 2018. You can prepare all kinds of meals in a cast-iron oven, including stews, casseroles, omelets, and even fresh-baked breads, but to use one out in nature with as little trouble as possible, you'll want a dedicated Dutch oven table. These lift your pots off the ground and save you from stooping to tend to your meal, which is a real benefit if you're tall or tired from a long hike.

Editor's Notes

August 24, 2020:

Keeping your Dutch oven out of the dirt is a cinch when you have a table or stand, and we've kept a range of choices of varying sizes and features, for hassle-free use in any cookout scenario. Thanks to their enduring popularity — and more than serviceable design — we've kept both the Camp Chef Table and the Lodge A5-7 as top choices. But we selected a similar model, the Stanbroil Black, as an additional option; it's not quite as wide as the former two, but it has adjustable feet, a handy feature that will make it a good choice for some.

We added the Bruntmor Swing, as well, an alternative to traditional tables. It can hold a Dutch oven or cauldron in two ways, on a hook or on the swinging grate, but if you choose the grate option, you'll probably need to use a Dutch oven without feet. The same is true of the AmazonBasics Outdoor Grill, which also boasts a grate. Note that even though this option is called a grill, it was not designed for direct food contact.

Finally, we kept one cooking tripod, the Lodge Tripod. The adjustable legs are a nice touch, as is the carrying case, but it can be harder to set up than a traditional table. On the other hand, it can help tall users raise a Dutch oven to a comfortable height — assuming your heat source will permit it.

Selected choices from popular manufacturers Camp Chef and Lodge, including the Lodge Tripod for those who need to save weight and/or space. Added the Camp Chef Sherpa, as well, even though it will not hold charcoal like other models; it can still be useful as a prep station.

Special Honors

Kent Rollins Horseshoe Dutch Oven Trivet With the Kent Rollins Horseshoe Dutch Oven Trivet, you'll have two stands in one, since it arrives with two sets of legs for easily creating two height options; these also ensure it's a breeze to transport. And as its name suggests, it is crafted with horseshoes, making it a more handsome choice than most.
