Bit of a long shot, but a cool box with tray?

I am trying to replace a very old cool box from John Lewis for my dm.

She had one and lent it out which never got returned and on every picnic she sighs over its replacement, as it does not live up to the standards set.

The lost one had a tray and a small chopping board that fitted onto a lip around the top of the cool box, meaning she could keep all the knives, teaspoons, salt & pepper etc to hand and the chopping board didn't slip.

I have looked on-line for a similar one or kit that will fit into a regular box but so many don't have great descriptions or images that I am about to give up!

Does anyone have a cool box with a tray/board that they can recommend or have you seen one on a wander through a store?

TIA

Lots of retro boxes on ebay.

Posh modern one here or a backpack version [[ http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/accessories-tyres/44764/navigate-summerhouse-vintage-blue-insulated-picnic-basket here]]

Unfortunately not those.

It was a bog standard, white cool box but inside there was a small basket that dm would keep all the cutlery and condiments. It sat on the inside edge of the box along with a small chopping board so that when dm came to make the sandwiches everything was to hand and stable rather than putting the board on the ground.

If that makes any sense!?

You can buy the tray separately here, may have to get the cool box from them as well to make sure it fits though...

I know this is probably not what you are looking for but would she like this?
Just thought the way it folds out into a table might appeal to her?
