AluBox spe­cialises in cus­tom­made alu­minium crates and has now de­signed a “kitchen crate”. It’s as big as a stan­dard 80 ℓ plas­tic con­tainer and is 55 cm long and 38 cm wide and high. It’s so sturdy that you can put it on the back of your bakkie or in the boot of your car. Paul Ly­des-Uings heads up AluBox and says the crate is so strong you can also use it as a step. It comes fully equipped with cut­lery and crock­ery for four, which in­cludes knives, forks, spoons, cups and plates right through to a cut­ting board, fry­ing pan and egg lifter. The crate’s lid opens up to the top but then the front sec­tion folds flat to­wards you. It’s sim­i­lar to how car­a­van builders built their out­side kitchens, with the side door that folds down as a work sur­face. There’s a mounted oneb­urner gas stove on the sur­face and you get an ex­tra gas cylin­der. The whole thing weighs only 12 kg and you can eas­ily place it any­where in the camp­site or next to the road.

Price R4 450 (AluBox is in Pre­to­ria but uses the ser­vices of a na­tion­wide courier at an ad­di­tional de­liv­ery cost.) Con­tact 076 924 2687
