A foodie’s guide to Airstream kitchen basics



As far as Airstream kitchens are concerned, this is as small as it gets. Nevertheless, I will not allow that to impede my efforts since I am a bit of a foodie. Make steamed dumplings, cupcakes, braised salmon, roast lamb, stewed chicken, and braised salmon. I make all of my food from scratch. Thanksgiving was my favourite celebration even though I roasted the turkey over a campfire.

Airstream Kitchen Item Rules

The following qualities must be present in every kitchen item:


  • As the Airstream travels, items may be tossed and tumbled. A warp-and-bend-resistant item is therefore a good choice.
  • It is impossible to break glass or ceramics. A cabinet filled with shattered glass or crockery would be horrible, not to mention difficult to clean.
  • The only way to wash dishes in Airstreams is by hand, since there are no dishwashing machines.
  • There were two materials we could choose from: metal or plastic.

For Dinner:

Just Enough Silverware

We originally designed our silverware set to serve 16 people. During our wedding 15 years ago, they were presented to us along with steak knives. A couple of guests and ourselves should be able to eat what we have. Whenever we need more than that, we would have to use disposables.


  • Silverware set made of stainless steel with four pieces
  • The steak knives are made of stainless steel and come in a set of four
  • MSR Alpine nesting bowls made of stainless steel
  • The plates come from MSR Alpine’s stainless steel collection
  • Cooking utensil set for microwaving
  • These stainless steel tumblers are vacuum insulated
  • The metal mugs used for camping

Favorite Food Prep Tools

A In my old kitchen, I had a few favourite tools that I brought with me. I stir food while cooking with spatulas to get the last bit of sauce out of the pan. As a result of accidentally leaving my spatula on a hot surface, I prefer heat-resistant spatulas.


  • Two silicone spatulas that can be used at high temperatures
  • Press for garlic made from stainless steel
  • Kuhn Rikon Peeler
  • Microplane
  • Measuring cups made from stainless steel
  • Measuring spoons made of stainless steel
