Keter’s outdoor BBQ storage table provides the perfect decay-resistant apparatus to assist alfresco grilling meantime provides a hygienic stainless steel surface for food preparation that’s a jiffy to disinfect.
Keter Unity – The Ultimate BBQ Entertainment Station
Favourably, Keter’s Unity equips the barbecue deck with an all in one, handy, stylish & weather-resistant serving cart that can be wheeled into position to effectuate food preparation whilst entertaining guests, besides being surrounded by all your foodie accessories and storage compartments underneath.
Following the popularity of Keter Cool-Bars, Unity carts are intentionally designed to satisfy different tastes & locations. Two sizes showcase two shades, presented in either graphite grey or espresso brown.
The smaller Unity offers a square top, one shelf & single cupboard underneath that’s ideally-suited for locating in restricted patio spaces meanwhile the larger model, termed the XL Unity doubles up the surface area into a large rectangular table comprising a spacious shelf & twin-door storage cupboard down below.
On account of my Butchery background, when searching for a food prep station, a hygienic surface headlines the list. Just like ensuring a probe, knives & grilling equipment maintain bacteria-free, achieving a sterile surface for food preparation should be instant and kept that way. The Unity is fitted with a 430-grade stainless steel top.
When considering the most sterile material between wood, polyethylene plastic, marble and stainless steel, the latter comes out on top in my book. A simple spray & wipe over with anti-bacterial solution disinfects the surface in an instant to accomplish hygienic food preparation, although it’s never advisable to cut on a stainless steel surface, a cutting board provides the ideal surface.
On the whole, Unity feedback comes across very well however a few downgrades are frustratingly provided due to annoying damages and missing parts which is rather puzzling. Personally, I wouldn’t accept a damaged delivery and if I was unlucky enough to open the box to find damaged or missing parts, I would contact Keter immediately for them to sort the problem rather than put the onus on the seller. Telephone support numbers are presented in Keter’s instructions or you can contact them online.

A Make-up Immune from Decomposing
We’ve discussed the stainless steel manufacture that covers & lips around Unity’s entire top serving as a table however stainless steel also resists corrosion which assures weatherproof defence when stood outside suffering the downpours meanwhile immediately disinfects for food prep using anti-bacterial wipes.
The rest of Unity’s construction including the cupboard, shelf, doors and frame are manufactured from environmentally recyclable polypropylene therefore when it’s time to upgrade & replace, this resin can be re-manufactured into alternative plastics.
Merging with the resin entails the colour pigments of either espresso brown or the deep anthracite shade of graphite grey beside being strengthened with UV protection to stabilize the manufacture from the intensity of sunburn damaging the composition with fractures and colour-bleach.
After mixing the resin ingredients, Keter’s innovative moulding procedure forms a chunky walled composition for sturdiness simultaneous to artistically creating the guise of a wooden structure including panelled doors & shelf, simulating details of a coarse wood-grain texture to the touch.
A polypropylene make-up is designed to remain unaffected when suffering diverse weather changes from rainfall showers to blistering heat and damp conditions meanwhile it’s not susceptible to capitulating through rot ‘n’ rust therefore never requires conserving with preservative wood-stains or paints to freshen appearances & nurture.
Freshening-up Unity’s presentation is as simple as wiping over with a damp cloth soaked in warm water comprising a squirt of cleaning solution such as mellow detergent or washing up liquid further to disinfecting the top as previously described before preparing food. Other than that, they’re maintenance-free.
Handy Features of the Unity Serving Cart
Moving Unity’s portable serving cart from positioned in the corner of the patio deck to the desired spot, next to the BBQ and close to friends, is assisted by two castor-wheels installed onto one side. Similar to Keter’s Comfy deck box, you lift the opposite side and push to locate.
Once positioned, the inevitable wobbly table usually results which becomes frustrating when cutting food, however, Keter has cleverly installed two adjustable feet on the opposite side to the wheels. Steadying the table to prevent rocking simply involves spinning both foot washers to evenly stabilize.
Food preparation requires a cutting board. Knives blunt very quickly cutting on steel furthermore it’s easily scratched. Simply put, it’s not designed for cutting on meanwhile positioning any wood block or plastic cutting board on stainless steel usually skates around like crazy due to the highly polished surface. We find resting the cutting board on damp cloth laid flat, admirably cushions to stop the slip.
Underneath the table-top situates a shelf for conveniently placing plates, cutlery, glasses & cookware meanwhile under the shelf a decent sized cupboard provides plenty of space for storing BBQ grilling tools along with fire-lighters, fuel and charcoal. Including the shelf space, the small Unity accommodates 40 Gallons of storage capacity whilst the XL holds up to 78 Gallons.
The cupboard doors are pad-lockable overcoming the solution to stop doors blowing open in windy weather, thereby protecting storage by maintaining dry internal conditions when not in use.
Incorporated into one side situates a sidebar for locating the included bottle opener & 4 S-hooks for hanging grilling tools & tea-towels meanwhile on the opposite side, a spice rack equips food preparation by accommodating seasonings, spices, sauces & ketchup for dining convenience together with a paper towel holder positioned below for handy wipe-ups.
Combining all these multi-functional services together the Unity storage cart provides the perfect height for food preparation, a drinks bar, alfresco dining and entertainment services to accompany BBQ get-togethers.

Assembling Keter’s Unity
Constructing both Unity entertainment carts involves working your way through a series of steps implementing the procedure demonstrated in the instructions. Similar to building flat packed furniture albeit most parts here simply click together.
The only tool required is a Philips head screwdriver for driving in 12 screws meanwhile an Allen-key is provided for securing 8 additional hex style screws.
Feedback’s impressive with regards to how clear the assembly process is, aided by embossing the instruction label onto each part during moulding.
