The Top 5 Most Essential Gear For Your Camp Kitchen

When you go on a camping trip, you would set up your campsite to be a comfortable space for you to sleep, cook and eat – just like your home. Setting up a camp kitchen is easy, just as long as you know which gear are the most important. In the future, you can add more items to your outdoor kitchen but for now, here are the top 5 that you need:

Stove

A portable stove is a must-have for any outdoor kitchen. You can choose to cook all your meals over a campfire but that would call for a longer cooking time and you might tire yourself out. A stove will help you cook food quicker and more conveniently.

Fuel

Your stove won’t run without fuel so be sure to check your stove’s fuel levels before you leave for camping. Always have extra fuel in hand just to be sure. One thing to keep in mind is that more fuel is consumed when you’re at a higher altitude or when the weather is cold.

Cooking Gear

The goal when packing for a camping trip is to pack light. All you really need is a compact pot and a cast iron skillet to start, especially if you’re tight on space. But this may not be enough if you’re cooking for a larger group so if space permits, add a few more pots and pans ( or just bring a couple of large ones). Don’t forget the smaller items that are essential in cooking – a spatula, a ladle, knives, cutting board, colander, measuring cup scissors, food containers, garbage bags and some bowls and plates to serve food in.

Cooler

A cooler has more use than keeping your drinks cold. When filled with ice, it’s a great space to store food that you’ll cook for your trip as well as leftovers to keep them from spoiling. It’s ideal to keep most food in a sealed container so as not to attract scavengers to your campsite.

Camping Lantern

It could get really dark out in the woods and cooking can get hard. It’s not ideal to rely on the campfire for light. While a flashlight will do the job, it will tie down your hands. Invest in a good quality camping lantern that will assist you in cooking, washing dishes and even provide light when you’re eating.

Check all these items from your list and you’ll have the 5 most essential gear for your camp kitchen!
