I'm a big fan of the Metro stainless-steel folding mobile table for use in outdoor kitchens and bars. It stows away discreetly and easily rolls out when you need it. The stainless steel is a breeze to clean (unlike some of the more trendy but less practical materials). It is great for BBQs and bars and shines when hosting people (and need the extra space).

Wish Houzz would produce an article on best cabinetry & counter options for outdoor kitchens as I've been given lots of conflicting advice. E.g., never use wood cabinetry near a gas grill or any grill; can't use quartz counters even in a sheltered roofed patio location and more. What's the real scoop? What's the range of safe, good longevity options for key components? Thx!
