With the Snow Peak kitchen set now being included (and detailed for the first time), I started to price out the included pieces just to get a sense of the overall value -
  1. Home & Camp Cookset - $314.95
  2. Kitchen Tool Set - $84.95
  3. Charcuterie Board - $37.95
  4. Field Barista Set - $260
  5. Stacking Mug Set - $118.95
  6. Tableware Set Family - $149.95
  7. Cutlery Set - $25.95 each
  8. BBQ Tongs - $19.95
I couldn't trace down a few of the other items (cork screw, knife, peeler) exactly, but I expect they'd easily be in the $25-$80 range. That puts the value of the Snow Peak Kitchen Set at over $1,000 conservatively - combined with the Gear Shuttle (also included) being a separate $1,500 value, the Camp Kitchen itself is "only" $2,500, which seems pretty reasonable all things considered.

This certainly isn't the most cost-effective way to cook on the road, but for folks who were eyeing the kitchen anyway, the Snow Peak set being included is awesome news and really helps with the overall value.

I'll also note that the Snow Peak choices here are ludicrously premium and you could absolutely build the same kit for muuuch less with cheaper materials (nylon, aluminum, etc.) for marginal added weight and less concerns about rattling. But then you're probably not a Rivian customer 😅

I don't think I could be friends with anyone that spends $1,000 on camping utensils.
They're not $1,000, they're free!*

* with qualifying $5,000 purchase of a glorified camp table

I was not expecting to get that type of camping equipment with the kitchen. I honestly was pretty happy with just the kitchen as is - even if it is a bit pricey. The integration with the gear tunnel, extra water, and what I hope to be a nice induction stove had me sold pretty quickly and I think it will be extremely fun to use while car (truck?) camping.

And now I get to make super fancy coffee too haha

What’s the over/under on how long before you lose the first piece? Or one of your drunk tailgate buddies throws it in the trash (because that’s how you “clean up at tailgate parties!)? 😆

I've had titanium spoons thrown away before - they're so light they feel like plastic and people assume they're disposable. So... not long 🙃
