Whether you're setting out a tray of freshly grilled burgers on your patio table or placing a fruit tray on a picnic blanket within easy reach of little hands, the Charcoal Companion 17-in. Square Food Tent helps make outdoor eating a more pleasant experience. At 17 inches square, the tent can accommodate multiple dishes at once, so friends and family can access the food without worrying about insects. The food tent also makes a pretty presentation of your picnic meal. The mesh dome is transparent to let you keep an eye on everything inside so you'll know when it's time to refill the plate of tea sandwiches or wipe down condensation on the sides of your lemonade pitcher, and it's durable enough to withstand frequent handling as guests reach in again and again to get another slice of your fresh-baked cherry pie. Because the lightweight tent collapses flat when not in use, you can easily take it with you on a camping trip or to the beach. It's also useful for protecting freshly baked cakes, pies and brownies left to cool on a table or counter inside your home. Features:
  • Mesh surface protects the food inside when you're eating outdoors
  • Easy to assemble so you can set it up anywhere
  • Large 17-inch size can cover multiple dishes at once
  • Flattens when closed for easy storage and transport
  • Material: Mesh
  • Origin: Hong Kong
  • Size: 17-in.

  • Cooking Tent

    This cooking tent was a snap to put up and worked well - until I tried to collapse it again for storage. Now it looks a bit like an umbrella that the wind got hold of and bent all to heck and back: at least one of the metal prongs is bent beyond repair and that means I cannot set it up properly again either.

  • Nice Size Food Tent

    Nice size food tent, I have several. Only problem is that it is a lightweight item, sometimes you need to keep the edges weighted down to keep it flat to the table (or flying insects get right in through the gap) since it has no heavy frame to serve that purpose. It is collapsable, which is nice for storage, but if you have room to store a tent with a heavier, framed edge that will more easily stay put on the table, you might want to weigh that option.

    I recommend this product.

  • Great backyard helper

    This simple, bug-proof screen is wonderful! I watched as the flies tried to get at the food and couldn't. I bought six so all the food at the table could be covered, even individual plates. It's large and easy to work.

    I recommend this product.

  • handy for patios with lots of flying bugs

    Easy to open and close, takes up little storage room, large enough to fit over a full size plate.

  • Say no to bugs when eating outdoors

    Great for camping since they collapse and store flat.

  • Food Tent

    We have a large roof top deck and eat there often. I found that I needed something to cover dishes when we set up ahead of time for guests. These tents worked well, with a smooth operating system. They seem a little fragile so treat them gently and to store them compactly be sure to save the boxes they came in. I would buy more when there is a need for them.

    I recommend this product.

  • The food tent is perfect for my needs. It allows my baked goods to cool on the counter while eliminating the risk of the occasional flying insect landing on it. They are also very inexpensive so I ordered two. As soon as I received my food tents, I took one to work to show a coworker who also loves to bake and she immediately ordered 2 for herself.

    I recommend this product.

  • Not quite perfect

    The Tent does offer adequate protection from insects. My only compaint about it is that it is too light---a slight breeze canblow it away. A rock or two will hold it down but I think in the future you should add some kind of weight to the bottom of the frame. Then it would be perfect!

    I recommend this product.
