Slowly working on upgrading my brewery to a 20 gal Electric. Been looking at options for a stand. Found this at sams club. Only $200.

It has a wood top, but it has a capacity of 1,000 pounds. Most of the stainless tables I've looked at do not have adequate capacity to have 2 loaded 20 gal kettles on them

So I'm thinking maybe setting the kettles on an 18x18 piece of ceramic tile.....

That should work. You probably don't even need to worry about the tile. The hottest the wood will get is 212F, which shouldn't be a problem. I just have my electric kettles sitting on a piece of laminate countertop on a steel frame.

We use those tables at work. They're beasts. I've been wanting to get a couple for use in my garage, along with the one thats a toolbox with the same top.

Is that the price on the table, $69? If so I want one too.

No the $69 is for the cabinet. Table is $199.

How is the top affixed to the frame?

I imagine there are screws in that channel up into the bottom of the wood top. It comes unassembled.

They're pretty easy to put together. And for $199, its a pretty dang good table. Very sturdy. My only concern would be height, as these are pretty tall tables, and with a large pot or keggle sitting on it, you may need a stool or ladder to see into and stir it.

You may be right about the height.

One way around the height issue, you may be able to cut the same amount off of the top of each leg, then redrill the hole for the bolts to connect to the frame support. There shouldn't be any issues doing that that I can think of.
