Does the Table Mate work?The Table Mate is designed so that you can enjoy a meal or your favorite beverage in your favorite chair. Of course it looks super useful in the infomercial, but how about when it’s put to use in the real world? Does it actually work?

They pitch this table to anyone that’s used an old-style TV table, or those with limited mobility that need everything at arm’s reach so they don’t have to move around a lot. The benefits of this table are pretty clear to those that have a negative experience with regular portable tables. What’s most interesting is that they’ve outfitted it with a cup holder that swivels so no matter how you angle the table your drink stays level.

The Claim
They say that you’ll be able to use your Table Mate for all sorts of tasks. They say it holds up to 50 pounds, so whether you’re eating a meal, reading a book, or playing a card game it has you covered. They say the table is convenient because it slides where you need it to go. They claim that with the 6 different heights and the 3 different angles it’s like you’re getting 18 tables in one.

The Appeal
Compared to using a conventional TV table this one seems to be much more easy to use, and solves all of the inherent problems, like not being able to adjust it, and having it seem very weak and unsteady, having everything jiggle when the table gets bumped. It’s also easily adjustable, so that you can put it exactly where you want it. It can angle if you’re using it for a computer, or it can stay flat if you want to eat a meal on it.

The Cost
The total of your order will be $50 and you’ll get 2 Table Mate tables. This might catch some shoppers off guard, but you have to be aware that when you’re ordering one, you’re actually ordering one set of two. They say that they provide a lifetime replacement guarantee, but we were unable to locate the details on that. They also say that you have a 30 day guarantee, less shipping, so you’ll get the $30 back, but they’ll keep the $20 in shipping if you don’t like it.

The Commitment
This should make your life a bit easier, and more comfortable. It doesn’t take much to set up and start using this table, and once you have it in place where you want it it’s pretty much set and forget. They lightweight, so you can easily move them out of the way when you’re not using it. Also, for those that aren’t very strong and are worrying that they won’t be able to move it, this would be a better option than other heavier tables on the market.

Portable tables have been around for quite some time now, but traditional models leave much to be desired. If you’ve ever used them before you probably have your own list of complaints about them. It seems that they tried to address as many problems as they could when they were designing the Table Mate, including not being able to move the table easily, and having no place to store a cup.

When you’re in the market for a multifunctional table that you can use for several different purposes there aren’t too many options. There are similar tables to this one that use different materials, are heavier, and don’t slide around as easily. They got it right by making it lightweight, but allowing it to hold heavy things so you don’t have to worry about it. From the reports we’ve seen it works best as a computer table and a place to have a meal, as well as for arts and crafts.

Final Table Mate Review

The Table Mate is getting our Thumbs Up rating, as it delivers on its promises and is winning fans left and right. You’ll want to be sure that you don’t order a fake one, as there are knock-offs out there, which we determined accounted for the majority of the negative feedback it received. Those customers that ordered the real thing most all had positive things to say about it, so much so that there’s a high probability that you’ll enjoy it, and that it will live up to your expectations.

Our Recommendation
If you are looking to replace your old portable table, or just need something that will help you out around the house, this is a good buy. It can be used for any task you have in mind, and once you have one in the home you’ll be surprised at how many things you come up with to use it for. If you’re a laptop user you’ll enjoy the comfort it provides, allowing you to sit in your favorite spot and angle your computer right where it feels best.

  1. Look at how SMALL that chair is where the person is sitting compared to the height of the living room chair on the left side of the screen.

    My Table mate has height sizes of knee high, ankle high and barely off the floor.

    There is no way I can fit it over my lap when I am sitting in a regular kitchen chair.

    I did NOT assemble it wrong. In fact I measured the length of the bars that make up the legs before they are even put together, and they are too short no matter how they are attached.

  2. I have the Table Mate. I am pretty lazy I suppose, but I don’t use my Table Mate to sit in front of the TV to eat. I use it for what I am doing right now. I put my laptop on it and I can surf the web, work, shop and all on the comfort of my couch. I prefer to do this in the living room in front of my big TV and is what prompted me to buy the Table Mate. I have the old TV trays, but it has the four legs and didn’t come up to you on the couch like the Table Mate. I love mine. It does cost $50.00, but I put the other one up, then if my husband decides to eat in front of the TV, then he can do so with his own table.

  3. This table seems like a great idea but the price seems to be really up there. A set of two for $50 is good if you have two people. But if there is only one person and the product is as good as they say (lifetime guarantee) then the one person would have no need for two. I don’t think the product stretches itself to merely people being lazy, but rather to a different type of lifestyle now which can often mean no dining tables and people eating in front of the TV every night.

  4. LOL~ Look how lazy we have gotten. Everyone watches tv while they eat, so now we have a table that’s perfect for the couch 😀 😀 😀 The sad thing is I need one too! I’m no different than anyone else and I eat in front of my tv, seated comfortably on my couch. Oh wow~ I betcha, they’re going to make a lot of money with this thing.
